Clean, good value and convenient but drab exterior
Good, clean but a little tired interior and very drab exterior. The hotel is well located just a few minutes walk from city centre and infact only 15 - 20 from the main station. The hotel also gives guests (at no extra cost) a local train ticket giving free trael on train, bus , tram fir the whole local area as far as Dusseldorf in the south and Dortmund in the north. Buffet breakfast is good too. Other than the external appearance and the immediate vicinity..a good hotel.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
The City-Hotel in Essen provides an all-inclusive experience: large room with extra seating, breakfast buffet, and , VERY convenient, complementary train tickets valid for the entire VRR region ( the VRR pricing is confusing and this is simple and saves money). Only downside is that I found the bed too soft.
