Checked in late evening and was greeted with a warm welcome. Receptionist genuinely wanting to get your check in done promptly, and at the same time got a nice upgrade to their deluxe rooms. Dinner in the bar area was simple, elegant and bar man is excellent. Breakfast in the morning again with the staff clearly looking to make sure...

We stayed at the impressive Mercure Hotel Plaza Essen just for one night, at the beginning of the month, for my wife’s professional reasons. We booked a non-smoking “privilege” room with courtyard view, as advised by other reviewers, to avoid street noise. The room was spacious and equipped in modern style. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well,...

A very nice business hotel centrally located in Essen. The rooms are quite New and spacious. The breakfast was good and the staff friendly and spoke very well English. The hotel also has a restaurant and a bar-area. Great for a 2 or 3 days stay.

Looking for better rate and service and BB offers, and or halfnoard with longer working hours for room service and restaurants. A kind of transport or shuttle bus to/ from train station will make this property the best in Essen

This is an excellent hotel although nowhere is ever perfect. Welcome was very warm unlike some other hotels in Essen. They do make you feel special and pleased to see you. Room was great although bathroom was a bit dated with no walk in shower. Hotel bar was nice and relaxing with an excellent bar man. My stay was only...

On arrival I was given a warm welcome and automatically awarded an upgrade to a more luxurious room and given premium internet because of my loyalty status. Everywhere in the hotel there is a very pleasant scent. I haven't found the pool which supposedly is on the third floor - the floor where I stayed (according to the buttons in...

The hotel has clean and comfortable rooms. Roomsize is average: not really large but definitely not too small. Parking is 18 euros per night, quite expensive for a location outside citycenter. Breakfast is good and worth the extra euros if it's not included in your rate.

I am traveling frequently to Essen. It remains my favorite hotel for my business travels. Clean, safe, silent room, 5 min taxi from the train station, close to a good restaurant area, excellent quality at breakfast. Service is very good. Very good quality-price. Only one missed point: no fitness/spa room.
