Very basic hotel focusing on efficiency. On your day of arrival you get a pin for your room. When we arrived, the subterranean garage was not opening and the automat was not working. Additionally there were no service people around. The room was standard, clean and equiped with the necessary. There was no safe and no fridge. Overall the quality was not matching the requested rate.

Thank you for a very nice stay in your hotel. Comfortable rooms with a good and warm shower. Very clean! We had an exhibition in Essen and it was very practical to use the breakfast at the Edeka nearby and to get something from there for take away lunch. So next year we will be there again!
