ibis in Essen
Handy for station and city. Reception not very friendly and struggled to find our booking. Room was clean and had air con. Seemed small though even by ibis standards and larger people would struggle with bathroom. Bed very comfy. If sitting on the mini sofa in room beware as you could easily hit your back on window ledge. Remote control for tv didn't work, suspect batteries flat and with ibis 15 minute promise they would probably have fixed if we asked.

Great breakfast
We stopped over in Essen for one night. The room is very small, especially the bathroom. The hotel is right next to the HBF and you can hear the trains and announcement. A bit noisy, but did not really affect my sleep. The bed is not very comfortable. The breakfast was very good (probably the best part of the hotel). In addition to £73 for one night, we also had to pay €10 for parking over night. It is a bit expensive for what we get.
