“Comfortable accomodation near the Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

Most people would not know that Mülheim in the German (formerly) industrial Ruhr area does have an Old Town, or Altstadt in German. Still, it exists. It's quite small and close to the shopping malls from the 1950s and 1960s. And it's the place to go if you are looking for a nice traditional pub or good restaurant. Haus Kastanienhof (Chestnut Mansions) is at walking distance close to the Old Town, not more than 10 minutes, although it is quite a steep climb when returning to the hotel after a night of eating and drinking out. The place itself is clean, rooms are comfortable and not that small, considering the price. The breakfast buffet is of a high standard, with fresh fruit, several sorts of cheese etc. Both the owner and the staff are very friendly.

My partner and I were attending a conference at Messe Essen and found Haus Kastanienhof which looked suitable for our needs.

The hotel was located in Muelheim and was about 10-15mins walking distance to the nearest train station. It was then a few stops to Essen HBF to change trains and then another couple of stops to Messe Essen. All in all it wasn't too far and was about €25 taxi fare from Essen to the hotel.

The hotel was simple and clean. We had twin beds with extra blankets but the pillows were a little non-existant. The room also came with free breakfast and I had low expectations but they served a nice continental breakfast with fresh rolls, cold meats and cheese, cereals and was a good start to our long day at the conference. The hotel staff were helpful but weren't very fluent in English, and our German was poor so communication was slightly challenged.

The best part of the stay was a great restaurant next to the hotel. After living off overpriced hotdogs during the day, it was nice to eat some more traditional German fare. The food was simple but yummy and the portions were massive and all delivered with great value for money.
