“value for money”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

A good business hotel. Comfortable and clean rooms. Excellent breakfast, close to public transport. Internet limited to free 250 mb download, which is enough for checking mails and a little browsing. The only minus point was long lines at checkout in the morning. The hotel is popular with business travellers and although two hotel staff were present at check-out counters, there was considerable waiting.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. Room was very comfortable which overlooked the busy main road but wouldn't know it as was very quiet. Had an excellent shower, although could have done with larger towels as the only ones provided were nothing more than hand towels but that apart, was a very pleasant stay. Breakfast was very good with a fine selection of food. Staff were friendly and would recommend this hotel to suit business purposes in the area.

aseptic atmosphere and a little impersonal, rooms are austere and pretty much..basic.
Very clean even if some appliances need to be fixed ( shower water hose)
Breakfast is served on the first floor and you have quite a selection but the fruits had strnge smell and even stranger taste
some rooms look over the street but they are anyway silent except for the woofer of the discoteque in front which you faintly hear all night long

We had a very good stay at the Welcome Hotel.

The hotel has an excellent price/quality ratio. The room and bathroom were both very clean. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant which was good for a correct price. However I consider 17 € per person for the breakfast very expensive, so we decided to go to a bakery.

We stayed at this hotel for about 3 weeks due to business reasons. the rooms are clean and relatively spacious, however, the bed was rather small and you are provided with only 1 pillow and a small duvet cover. the pillow was so soft that it was negligible even if you had one. the buffet breakfast is pricey for what you get served. and the variety does not change at all, we had exactly the same variety every single day for the duration of our stay, which was driving us insane!
only 3 english language TV channels were available. service was average, including front staff and staff in the F&B outlet. the only good thing was the location, walking distance to most of the shopping and eating areas. Also, i was in a room where the wi-fi had a weak signal and could not get online (even if i wanted to pay for it). when i mentioned to the reception, they said that there was nothing they could do about it! how frustrating!

Room Tip: rooms away from the street are better and gives u a stronger wi-fi signal

I was pleasantly surprised as my client had booked the hotel.

Good location - within walking distance of many businesses, shopping, and dining.

Modern and large rooms (for Europe!). Good staff although a few had problems with their English in giving directions.

Decent restaurant.

And the price was CHEAP (about $130/night including taxes and wifi).

I will be staying here on future trips.

The staff that work here are great, they speak very good English, which is a relief because I only studied French at school. The hotel is very near a station and also near the main street in Essen, so it's well located for visiting Essen. Essen itself I wouldn't say there is that much to do or see. We were here on business though.

From what I remember there are 5 bedroom floors. The lowest floor has the basic rooms and the top floor has the suites, so the higher up you go the better the rooms. We were on the lowest grade room floor on floor one. We didn't get to see the standard of the rooms on the other floors, although other people we knew were on those floors and didn't make any bad comments. The bedroom was clean and tidy and the bathroom had adequate space to move about in. There was a fridge in the room, though the mini bar was only stocked up with two bottles of water and two beers.

Wi-fi internet access was easy to get and fast and reliable, something which is not common in many hotels. You get 3 hours free and then you have to pay for wi-fi access, it's fairly reasonable at Euro3.90 per 24 Hours (compared to other hotels).

The restaurant served very good food, the staff were good. The food was a reasonable price for a restaurant, the drinks were very expensive and small, which they are in most restaurants to be fair.

Breakfast was really nice with a good range of buffet items, though like most hotels it's also expensive at Euro17 per person per day.

The biggest reason I marked down this hotel in the ratings were the pillows on the bed. I didn't get as much as sleep as I should from trying to get comfy. Basically there were two pillows on the bed, one for each of us and you just sunk through them. I tried the two pillows on top of each other and that was just as useless, you just sink through the pillows. We both tried folding the pillows up to four times, it had relatively little effect. So I was glad to get home last night and have a decent nights sleep.

Overall though, I'd certainly go back to this hotel if I was visiting Essen, I'd just ask them if they have changed their pillows next time.
