I stayed here overnight on New Year's Eve. A bold decision, as the Kennedyplatz is apparently "the place to be" for fireworks on said day. The rooms aren't exactly large, but large enough. The bathroom is small, but nevertheless has a walk-in shower, big enough for a person of my size. I'm not exactly "standard size"... The rooms are spotlessly...

This Motel is situated in the City-center of Essen. Parking beneath Kennedyplatz is only 10 Euro a day. Essen is a very nice city to shop and the Christmas-market is right in front of the hotel (on Kennedyplatz). Rooms are not big, but clean, quiet and modern with a nice view over the Christmas-market if situated at the front side....

You can not beat this location for the Christmas Market. Literally steps away. A comfortable, modern space for a very reasonable price. The room is expectedly small, but not cramped. A very good shower and nice bedding. Lovely contemporary touches. We enjoyed the lobby bar when the market got too chilly.

I've stayed in Motel One in more than two cities, and have only experienced consistent quality and good service. The breakfast is a continental buffet with fresh juices, the rooms are well laid out, and beds are good.

The concept is good. Rooms are fine. Reception friendly.Location is perfect. on the spot.Problem was to find the right park-house. Navi is using Kennedy Place but guide you to the wrong park house. Would be perfect if the hotel let customer know what the right address is. The reception knows about that problem.

I booked this hotel as an alternative to my usual one in Essen, as that was full. I'd only ever stayed in my usual one, so this was a bit of a leap of faith! The positives: The room rate was fantastic for what the hotel offers. The hotel has a really modern lobby / breakfast / bar area. Check...

I was starting here during a business to Essen and must say I really enjoyed my stay of two nights. The location is great just a couple of minutes from the main reason station directly in the center (Kennedy Square) with many restaurants and shopping around. Also no problem to get taxis in the morning. The rooms are what you'd...
