Somewhere at Altenessen

We were looking for a hotel not far away from the Amphitheater in Gelsenkirchen, Germany as we wanted to attend a concert there. Our requirements were low but we were pretty late and therefore had to take the Astoria City Resort hotel in Altenessen, a city quarter of neighboring Essen, Germany. It was at least 45 minutes on foot away from the concert location.

That was a tough walk at night but getting a taxi was kind of impossible. The hotel itself feels like a mix of a youth hostel and a cheap hotel – but the room was clean and the cheap breakfast was sufficient. Best of all was that from the hotel you have direct access to the Greek restaurant Kallisto which was surprisingly good. The hotel also has a parking lot in the backyard. For this trip it was perfect.
