    « Above and Beyond »

    The staff at the Hotel BW Ypsilon were fantastic! They were so helpful, pleasant and kind. They went above and beyond our expectations to assist us with all of our wants an needs. The food at the breakfast was delicious, the hotel restaurant was lovely and the food there was also excellent. I cannot complement them highly enough. It is conveniently located and comfortable.

    « Best Western quality »

    I stay at this hotel every time I visit Essen for business. it is a clean place with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean and standard Best Western quality. Breakfast fresh with good choice, again as you can get all over the world. It would be lovely if it were a little bit more characteristic. I will surely come back any time

    « Glad to be back again »

    I hadn't stayed here in a while, but was glad I went back again. I had forgotten how good it is! The staff were friendly as always, very relaxed, and the breakfast has only gotten better (and went on until 1pm!!!!). Their check-out is 12pm, an hour later than most places, but when 12 comes and if you're still in your room, there is no incesant phonecalls or knocks on the door, fantastic! I'll be back.

    « Typical travelling sales man hotel »

    Might be a bit unjust as I've arrived rather late and left early in the morning, but most of what I've seen didn't impress me. The room was more Ibis standard, a lot of cheap stuff, plastic shower and the sheets weren't fully clean (some lints on it) also he room was smelling heavily after cigarettes (I'm a smoker, so if I can smell it, that counts for something). In general the attention to detail didn't seem to be great. However check out went swiftly and the location is convo isn't enough to get quickly in and out. So nothing really bad but nothing that would tempt me to get back either

    « Decent, well located hotel »

    Located close to Ruttenscheider Strasse, Ypsilon enjoys very good connectivity through U-bahn and S-bahn, 10 mins walk away and Bus, 2-3 mins walk away. Ruttenscheid has some of the best restaurants in Essen. An excellent Chinese Imbiss is a 5-min walk towards Ruttenscheid. Rooms are small, with a nice bed. Best thing about Ypsilon is its breakfast buffet. With a variety of breads, cheeses, yoghurts, cereals, fruits and coffees, and a live counter for eggs, I enjoyed every meal there. You get free wifi and good service from their staff. A well stocked piano bar can help you unwind and de-stress from the gruelling day-long work.

    « GIVE IT A TRY »

    This hotel was a little off the beaten track compared to our previous Essen visits but it was worth the stay. It appears a little basic at times but offers all that you would want from a hotel. Good staff and amenities and a friendly feeling helped make the stay enjoyable. The only down side was that the bed was quite noisy when turning over but it was comfortable. Internet was good and the lift quirky (in a nice way). Enjoyable stay.

    « Should have been 5 stars, but--- »

    Very good room, a mini suite with a very comfortable bed and quiet location at the back. Excellent shower. No kettle provided but coffee and tea brought to the room free of charge on request. The settee in the suite was convertible to a single bed.A comfortable stay. Breakfasts were amazing with wonderful food and very good value. The downside - on Sunday evening we brought back four guests at 6 pm after an event to have a relaxing drink. No one was in the bar (except two hungry other customers) and despite repeated requests to the reception, no one appeared for 35 minutes. The man on reception was very unhelpful. Eventually the lady in charge of the bar did appear and explained that she had to staff the bar and cook the food and had been cooking the snack for the two other hungry guests. Only snacks such as sausage and chips are available on a Sunday. We were served after 40 minutes. It appears there were only 2 members of staff in the hotel. The restaurant does not operate on Sunday evenings - although the website says nothing about this (the in-room brochure does make this clear if you read it all). On Monday morning we had to leave at 6.25am (I told the staff this on Sunday night). When we came downstairs at 6.15 am we expected to be able to have a cup of coffee from the "24 hour coffee service" in reception. There was none, and the night reception told us we could have nothing until 6.30am - when we would be gone. He was not interested and made to offer to help. So we left for the airport without even being offered a glass of water. So a lovely Hotel but don't bother being there on Sunday night or early Monday morning, they have no interest in you then

    « GREAT room; horrendous WiFi! »

    Don't get me wrong, we were perfectly content with this room. The location worked out very well for us, the staff was friendly, the room was very clean. The bed in the room was VERY hard, if that's what you like, but we were so exhausted each night, any bed would have been fine. There was great pressure in the shower and that was delightful. Bring your toiletries as we were only given soap and shampoo and I didn't like the shampoo. There was a hair dryer (and a lighted make-up mirror!) but no iron. The only real complain was that the free WiFi was the most ridiculous I've ever encountered and I've traveled a lot. Each day, we'd have to request slips of paper from the front desk with randomized numbers and passwords -- FOR EACH piece of equipment. That was four for us: two iPhones and 2 tablets. These codes were only good for 6 hours so they had to be reentered each time to use the phone or iPad. Don't make a mistake, or you'll spend 5 minutes trying to log in! The iPhones, we were told didn't hold the codes, making it the most frustrating and absurd way to dole out free WiFi. On that basis alone, I'd consider finding another hotel! However, if that isn't an issue for you, this is a fine place to stay. We never ate in the restaurants though there was a breakfast buffet every morning in one room (not free) and a restaurant/bar.

    « Functional »

    Stayed here on a business trip. Not my usual choice of hotel in Essen, however the staff were pleasant and free wifi was available. Rooms were clean but pretty basic and I found it quite frustrating that there were no tea and coffee facilities in the room (I ordered a pot of tea on room service and there was no cup or sugar provided).

    « Nice hotel »

    Simple hotel, clean and functional. Staff is friendly, wifi very fast room a little bit crampy. Breakfast nice for the hotel level, be careful for parking...can be a problem to find a place. Well located if you are for business in Essen

    « Nice weekend with friends »

    I had a great weekend with friends. Nice clean friendly hotel. Awsome Sunday breakfast / brunch and very nice profesional people. Ask for an ommelet at breakfast and you are in for a surprise. Also liked the achitecture of hotel very unique.
