“Excellent value and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2012

Very close to station and main shops. Clean and tidy - staff were excellent. Very good value for money and the only reason it got four stars was the terrible pillows and bedding! I am sure that had I asked for others or more I'd have got them but was late in for the two nights I was there....perfect for what I needed (there with friends to see a football match)

I was in Germany for Drupa 2012(a media fair held in Dusseldof every 4 years) and this is one the worst Hotel that I have stayed in my entire life - even when compared to hotels in other countries and smaller towns. The staff is unfriendly the breakfast spread is not good. The rooms are small. I have stayed in smaller hotels in Asia but this hotel is terrible. If the hotel staff is so terrible why should the managers/owners run the Hotel? Hotel business is about hospitality right? Hotel staff are supposed to be courteous to their guests. We were a large group of 70 visitors from SOTC (now Kuoni) and I can confidently say that most guests were unhappy with the services.

Room Tip: chose the rooms not adjacent to the road. Guests in rooms close to the road will have disturbed slee...

For a night on business travel and a good night of sleep it is good. Nothing special, but it has what you need. It is comfortable, modern, the bed is quite good and it is quiet (at least the business room i stayed in).
Staff was polite and helpful.
i think the best choice if you need to stay in Gelsenkirchen for a night.

Room Tip: ask for a business room in the back of the hotel. It is 10 euros more

Very convenient, near the railway station but difficult to find. As you leave the station, immediately turn right, then after 50 yards you pass Sparkasse (cash machines). Then bear left and keep going for about 90 yards and you are there!! It is particularly difficult to find at night.. I received a very friendly welcome but it took about 15 minutes for them to book me in even though they had my booking form ready for me to sign. Everything else was competent: breakfast, comfortable room, service at meals and in the bar. When I contacted them after I thought I had left some items behind, they went looking for them and emailed me back within minutes. Very helpful and assuring.

It was a good hotel and almost Okay for what you pay. It is very close to Gelsenkirchen station. The shopping street is also very close by. Inspite of all that, it is almost quit (when windows are closed). Room and buffet breakfast were also good. So in upsort nothing very great but good for what you pay. It is clean and spacious hotel. Staffs are very good. Although they understand very little English but they will cooperate and try to understand what you want. Internet Wi-fi is having some issue, so always ask for multi-login internet access card. TV remote is having pay channel button also(will show you erotica and blockbuster movies), thus take care and decision is yours. Thus, it is overall good to stay hotel for simple budget.

We stayed here in Jun 09 for 5 nights, room only as the breakfast is over-priced by a long way (go to the Hibernia bar 2 mins stroll away instead for a really good and cheap buffet breakfast). Where do I start? The reception staff were uninterested, sometimes surly. Towels were taken away but not replaced, bedding not replaced at all, beds not even made some days - and collecting one’s own toilet paper from reception always makes you feel like you’re staying in a quality establishment. Room was reasonable size and clean (apart from somewhat mouldy grout in the shower). If you are from the UK think “Travelodge that’s seen better days” Lots of TV channels, though if you aren’t German there are only two in English. No tea/coffee maker. Hairdryer which overheated and shut itself off after only two minute’s use. Beware rooms at the front of the building – the hotel is on a busy ring-road, and the traffic noise is constant 24 hours a day, and very loud. No air conditioning means you either boil at night or stay sleepless because of the noise. Another gem was the “muzac” which played in the corridors 24 hours a day – the speaker was right outside our door and lying awake listening to a poor version of Celine Dion at 3 am isn’t our idea of fun. Reception staff expressed surprise every night when we rang them to ask that they switch it off (which thankfully they did). The elevators were on the blink also, and since we were on the fourth floor this would have proved very difficult if we had had mobility problems. We booked this hotel through hotels.com for a very cheap rate and, as the hotel includes a pass for public transport (meaning you can get trains, buses, trams etc to as far away as Dusseldorf) this was very good value for us, as we were exploring the area. It was also very near the station. We had stayed in 2008 for 3 nights on a B&B package, which had been very well priced, but this special was not available this year. We would have to conclude that this hotel has gone downhill quite a lot in recent times. The only reason we’d stay here again is the free public transport pass, and only if we got a very cheap deal, as there is an Ibis nearby.
