Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SanDaan Typical HI Express
Typical HI Express, I like the new design. What I didn't liked is the fact that there is no real Elite Member benefit. The only thing is free internet which you would get in every IHG hotel world-wide and we only got one voucher for 2 people with 3 devices with the need for a connection.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacquie51 Another Enjoyable Stay
This is the third time that I have stayed with the HI Express in Essen and I was not disappointed for choosing it again. I called the Reception desk a day before to inform them that I would not be arriving before 2100hrs and although my room was paid in advance so that my room was guaranteed the lady still placed a comment on the computer. Arrived over an hour later than anticipated and was met with a smile and a friendly goodevening. In less than five minutes, I had checked in and was in my room. This time around, I had a room looking over the front of the hotel, which could get noisy per other reviewers comments. I had no trouble at all. On the Saturday evening there was loud disco music but by 2230hrs everything was quiet.
Hotel room was very clean. Breakfast was plentiful with a wide assortment of bread and rolls. For my taste it was exellent as I do not care for cooked/fried breakfasts.
Thank you HI Essen for another delightful stay in a clean, comfortable room and bathroom.

Typisches Hotel für Geschäftsleute. Die Ausstattung ist zwar auf das Nötige oprimiert; dafür ist das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis exzelent, die Mitarbeiter sind freundlich und kompetent, die Zimmer sind sauber, die Lage ist - auch ohne Auto - bestens, mit Auto angeschlossene Tiefgarage.
Nutze das Hotel seit vielen Jahren, früher auch für Tagungsgäste. Stets (!) problemlos.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by krausolany Hotel good, staff needs training
Hotel itself is good value for the money. Rooms are quiet and newly renovated and even have a safe wjich I have not seen in HIX properties before.
Really annoying were the discussions with the front desk staff. When checking in the lady tried to charge me twice the money I already paid for my 2 nights stay (prepaid rate). Had to argue for long time that the rate is prepaid.
When checking out they tried to charge me again. Had to argue again and (another) lady changed it finally without one word of excuse or anything friendly.

Good clean comfortable room, friendly staff. Location is reasonable, 10 - 15 minute walk to centre of town.
Just a pity breakfast during the week is until 10am, that's a bit early for me - Im a slow starter, would be nice if it was available later, but its not a big issue and would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aurinka09 Nice hotel in perfect location for visiting events at the Colosseum Theater
The hotel location is excellent if you're planning to attend an event at the Colosseum Theater, which is just a 5 min. walk away. There's also a tube station in working distance, as well as the Mongo's Restaurant and a shopping mall (Limbecker Platz). The hotel itself looks very friendly, comfortable and inviting, the room was good for 2 - space is limited if you're booking it for 3-4 people, at least the one we had. We appreciated that there was a kettle for tea & coffee.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cmndwedge Very helpful staff, terrible wi-fi connection
Rooms and Staff were great. Very helpful.
Wifi access was terrible across the hotel, in our rooms and the lobby. Barely usable.
