Hotel description City Hotel Essen

The innovative and experienced team of the City Hotel Essen is looking forward to receiving you and to making you a regular guest of our property if you are still not one. Already upon entering our lobby, you will forget about the cares of the day and be immersed in the relaxing atmosphere of the hotel.

At the end of a working day, nothing can be better than pampering yourself in the small but fine sauna. On the next morning, we will spoil you with a large and copious breakfast buffet giving you a nice start to the day.

Guests also profit from the central hotel location. It is set at the beginning of Essen’s shopping street, only 700 m away from the Colosseum musical theatre and the Limbecker Platz shopping paradise. The railway station is about 1.5 km away and the trade fair in Essen is some 4,5 km from the hotel. The Rheinischer Platz metro station is right on the doorstep. From there you can easily access the major destinations in and around Essen.

Apart from the breakfast buffet, the room rate comprises the following services: WLAN internet access, Sky TV,  fully stocked mini-bar (re-stocked once per day after the first day), sauna, parking and free use of the public transport within the traffic network of Rhein Ruhr.

Too few parking spots and the hotel really needs an overhaul - It feels extremely dated.
