Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

New, clean hotel. Friendly staff. Free wifi, good breakfast bar. Really peaceful location. Large room and bathroom
The only problem... no hotel sign on the road which made it difficult for the taxi to find it... at 1am.

Stayed July 2014, travelled on business

We stayed at this hotel recently when visiting the Classic Car Show in Essen. The hotel is very nice, fairly new, good ammenities and very pleasant staff. The hotel is next to a special school for people with learning dificulties some of which the hotel employ. We found them to be very helpful and pleasant and good at their job.On display in the hotel are some of the items that the people at the school have made i.e. candles and wooden items all resonably priced. The breakfast on both the days we stayed there was excellent. The hotel also recommended a very nice restaurant which was about a five minute walk aaway where we ate on both nights as it was so good. Would definately stay there again if in that area.

Reviewed 27 October 2013

Stayed here in October 2013. Hotel seems new and all the facilities are very clean and in very good condition. Staff were friendly and helpful with good English.

Breakfast was the only meal I had and again this was very good with a good selection and all fresh.

Location isn't fantastic although it is a 3 minute walk from a tram stop that takes you the Rathaus in the town centre from where it is a change or a 8 minute walk to the Hauptbahnhof.

Would stay there again

Nice hotel, caters to business travelers with conference center and meeting rooms. A bit of distance from city center - good 30 minute walk along not so very interesting streets. Good bus system that is fairly easy to figure out. Interesting aspect - hotel located next to a school for handicapped children and the hotel employs folks with handicaps. Management provides opportunity to give folks working experience and has found that they have great employees.

Reviewed 4 February 2013

Hotel Franz is a new 48 bed hotel on the main road (Steeler Strasse) between Essen Steele and the city of Essen, tram stops within 100 metres. Very comfortable rooms and beds. Everything you could need in a hotel. Wifi available in the room (116), good breakfast enhanced by very friendly capable staff. Definitely will return.
The only small criticism is the lack of external signage which could make this excellenf hotel difficult to find.
