« Excellent location... »

IBIS hotels never fail! Also this one in Essen is very good. Location to the railway station is ideal and service most efficient! Would consider staying there again! No complaints whatsoever with quiet rooms.

« Convenient and Quiet place near the city »

Staff were nice and I was able to early check-in when I arrived Essen in the morning. They provided me with essential information upon my inquiry on tourist information. Room was clean and tidy.

« Ok for one night »

All ok except for the checkin staff member. Seemed uninterested and unhelpful on simple queries. Obviously as that was my first point of interaction for the stay, it set the tone for the remainder of it. The checkout stay on the other hand were very good.

Sehr geehrter Herr y., wir danken Ihnen vielmals, dass Sie sich nach Ihrem Aufenthalt im ibis Essen Hauptbahnhof die Zeit genommen haben, uns zu schreiben, und bedauern zutiefst, dass die erbrachten Serviceleistungen Ihren Erwartungen nicht entsprochen haben. Die Hotels der Marke Ibis setzen alles daran, um Ihnen bei jedem Ihrer Aufenthalte eine optimale Servicequalität anzubieten. Ihre Meinung ist für uns daher von größtem Interesse. Von den 80 ibis Hotels in Deutschland haben ca. 12 Häuser Zimmer- und Badgrössen, die denen des Ibis Essen Hauptbahnhof entsprechen. Alle übrigen Hauser verfügen über deutlich grosszügiger geschnittene Zimmer und bieten dementsprechend auch einen höheren Komfort. Haben Sie nochmals vielen Dank für Ihre Anmerkungen. Wir hoffen, Ihr Vertrauen bei einer Ihrer nächsten Übernachtungen wiederzugewinnen, und würden uns freuen, Sie schon bald wieder bei uns begrüßen zu dürfen. Mit herzlichen Grüßen Ibis Essen Hauptbahnhof Gerald Kosub Direktor

« Anuga trip »

if you are taking part in Anuga this hotel is to far to travel from.! It is a great Hotel and good for Dusseldorf exbo but not Cologne. The hotel itself is close to the station and less than a 5 minute walk . The hotel is clean and tidy and nice and warm. The check in staff were very helpful and friendly. I give a low score for location only because the detail for it says IBIS Dusseldorf, Essen !! It is not Dusseldorf it is 30 minutes minimum away in Essen !!! The rooms are a little small and very basic.

« Excellent hotel and location »

Great hotel, friendly helpful staff and brilliant location. Safe parking. Staff are always friendly and ready to help with any query. Usually stay in December when the hotel is warm and individual heat controls in room really good. This time I stayed when the temperature was high and the aircon in rooms coped amazingly well.

« Convenient with no charm »

Small room, bad "sewer" smells in the bathroom, to the point I had to leave the window open. Unpleasant smell in the corridor, like dirty wet carpet.

« Stay at Ibis Essen »

Close to Essen Hauptbahnhauf. Very clean. Possibility to drink beer. Ask for rooms on the street and not on the railway ! Good location for a short stay at Essen, whatever the purpose (business or holiday)

« small but adequate »

Several of us travelled for business purposes and stayed in this hotel and we all had the exact same question over dinner "how small is your bathroom?" and the comment "I don't think I can even sit on the toilet!". The bathrooms are tiny! With that said, the room was clean and adequate. The two single beds were pushed together, so it seems a double bed would make more sense here and be more comfortable. The service at the restaurant/bar was great and friendly.

« Handy location, noisy hotel »

The hotel is well-situated for access to the city centre, the station and offices nearby (my meeting was just on the other side of the station). However the rooms are very small and the walls very thin so your sleep will be easily disturbed, as mine was, by other guests making noise in the corridors or in their rooms - one couple somewhere in the hotel were clearly having a lot of fun and wanted everyone to know about it...

Anonymous Solo - 29/10/2016 AccorHotels certified review

The stay was great, everything ok. I am only unpleasantly surprised by the constantly rising prices for the period for which I book. I have been told the price for my next stay is nearly double what it was a year before, even though I book a year in advance. That is too high a price, and very customer unfriendly, so I guess I will have to change a hotel or shorten my stay even though I otherwise love your hotel. You should not raise the prices so high. You are supposed to be an affordable quality hotel.

« Would book again. »

Enjoyed my first trip to Germany this October for Spiel, in Essen. Stayed at the Ibis. The rooms were cozy and clean. Despite the room I rented was facing out towards the train station it was very sound proof. The staff were friendly and excellent.
