The Ghotel is another hotel close to the main railway station of Essen, Germany. It is a modern and nice three-star hotel and seems to be brand-new. You can easily reach it on foot from the railway station and as there also U11 stops it is in the ideal location for visitors of the fair at Essen. It belongs to a hotel chain from Bonn, Germany which currently expands its list of locations (you can also find them at Hannover and Göttingen, for example).
What you will like about the hotel is the 24/7 reception, the bar and restaurant, the good and easy to use wifi and the delicious breakfast. What I found a bit surprising is that you can’t open a window in the rooms – they fully rely on an air-conditioning system. That works well, but it feels strange that you can’t open a window (for example in case of an emergency).
