I stayed here 2 nights on business. I found the hotel very nice, the rooms were clean & pleasant, the staff were very friendly & helpful. The major downside for me though, is that there is no restaurant or evening food provision (although staff were very helpful in pointing out places where I could go). On this basis though I... More

From the way I was greeted at reception, to being automatically charged on the double for breakfast that I didn't order (I was on my own, yet was charged for two), I found the whole experience very disappointing. There was no explanation why I was charged for two breakfasts, other than to be told, most guests usually have breakfast so... More

I recently stayed two nights at this hotel that was recommended by a friend. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is small but very clean and comfortable. The lift services the first 4 floors and there is a staircase to rooms 51-53 which are in the attics. I was in one of these and they were... More

I was in the area for business and stayed at Hotel "Maxi" and I was really impressed. The front desk folks including the night guard are amazing. I felt like a family member. From the very first moment they took care of all my needs and made sure that I felt "at home". The rooms are nice and comfy and... More

Maximilian's isn't an hotel, the services are just not there to justify the claim or the name 'Hotel'. It is really a B&B offering reasonable accommodation - no more. There is no restaurant, bar or falicities in the room to make tea or coffee & the fridge was locked so you could't keep fruit or a drink cool in the... More

Just a good hotel. Friendly staff. Place is 50 years old but refurbished. Room 21 was not too big, but okay. Minibar is locked, you can find stuff in the lobby. Breakfast is very good. Now, what's the issue. I wanted a big twin bed, not 2 single beds. Mattress appeared to be very bouncy. It was impossible to move... More

Spacey split level room. Clean, nice bed. TV (didn't use it though). Good Wifi connection and nice desk to work from. Parking alongside the road in front of the hotel. We had to take some stairs to enter the hotel...not sure if they have wheelchair facility. Might be worth asking at the hotel. Near to the Messe, walking distance about... More

Happen to go for a meeting in Essen while a big fair took place in Essen so my company put me into this hotel since our usual hotel was fully booked.

This hotel was sold and is under new management. Thank God. It has been lovingly renovated into a tres-chic hotel, with attentive and very friendly staff. It is a leisurely walk to a street filled with restaurants, stores and bars or a short cab ride. The hotel and rooms are impeccably clean, breakfast is excellent and the staff is wonderful.... More
