This is a very clean, modern hotel near the Essen train station. It isn't one of the larger hotels in the area, so make sure to get your bearings about the hotel location, because although it was very close we had some trouble finding it and actually had to take a short taxi ride to the hotel.

As others have mentioned the lack of carpeting in the hallways means that the noise can echo quite a bit. We always travel with earplugs, but if you're sensitive to noise you should be aware of this.

The breakfast spread was AMAZING. It additional to the usual cold meats, cheeses there were probably a dozen bread options and even multiple mineral water choices! It was one of the most unique breakfasts we had during our entire trip.

The person at the front desk who helped us checkout was great. Very friendly and loaded us up with snacks and helpful information when we left. The hotel will also sent postcards for you for free from the hotel.

It was a great place for us to stay during the Internationale Spieltage SPIEL (board game fair).

I'm often in Essen, and had them all: shabby hotel garnis, friendly family pensions, higher starred hotels. If you aren't familiar to Essen City, you should know that ther is a high volatility in the hotel rates depending on the fairs and conventions (Messe) and you can easily end up settling for an overpriced rundown room as the good spots are quickly booked out.

The Hotel Korschen charges around 80 Euro a night, which might under normal circumstances be considered as a bit to expensive for what it is; however we are in Essen: and here Korschen has proved to be a good choice in the medium price segment and delivered well (in comparison with other Essen hotels charging that rate). Check however the deals with higher starred hotels, as they can sometimes also be found for the same price.

Hotel Korschen provides clean rooms, with some free of charge ammenties: safe, TV with Sat receiver (yes, all the free adult channels are conveniently programmed from channel 30 onwards :), kettle with tea and coffee, earplugs, sudoku riddle, female hygiene set. Furthermore you can buy a reasonable priced selection of articles which are displayed in your room: batteries, Shaving stuff, medical first aid, condoms, and *giggle* pleasure providing stuff for ladies. Shower gel is provided in their spacious bathrooms, but nothing else.

Staff is very friendly. Large choice on breakfast buffet, inc. such funny stuff as water which is energised by minerals and multivitamin tablets.

Downsides: very hard cheap bed, hotel overall tiled, big bags with messy dirty towels and sheets all over the floors in the morning (as they have no other place to store it), no minibar in room (but you can buy it downstairs - where they also have complimentary biscuits and sweets).

Conclusion: recommendable hotel.

Hotel very central, clean and adequate but you'll need earplugs! Nothing to do with traffic. No carpets! Bedrooms and hallways all hard tiled so we heard every footstep, every door banging and echo-ing. Room keys had huge Perspex key-rings which also clattered against every lock. The staff were very nice but we stayed 4 nights and didn't get much sleep so won't return. Could be solved by putting carpets in halls and stairs!

I stayed at Art Korschen hotel for 6 days and it was a great experience. If you expect a 5 stars rating you are not at the right place, but it is a great hotel very close to the main train station (5 minutes walk) and the city center (5 minutes walk). Evert floor has a different concept such as New York, Relax, Beatles etc. My room was at the 2nd floor which is the NYC store. In the rooms you will find different decorations which remembers the concept.

The hotel provides with a very good breakfast buffet. There are no phones in the room, but you can order one. You will find a LCD TV and a bottle of water in your room. The pillows are not that good, but if you find the right position it is ok ;) The hotel provides you with a very fast and free WIFI.

The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The employees are trying to solve every wish.

If you come back to your hotel after 11 o'clock in the evenning to have to use the backdoor. The only disadvantage is at the elevators are turn off as well :(

I can recommend this hotel to everyone who is not expecting a high luxury standart.
