I visited the hotel last year and it was Ok. Now sInce my last visit they changed the WIFI Access so you don't need a Password per device and you get a softdrink and sandwich when you book a Business room. Breakfast buffet is good.

Dear Dick, thank you very much for your feedback. We did our best to "upgrade" our WIFI to the best and fastest connection which is possible here. In this step, we have also simplified the login and we have installed a completely new software. We are happy to hear your positive feedback about this :) Hope to see you again...

This little gem was well worth the visit. From the excellent team at the reception to the people serving at the breakfast, everyone was super friendly and pleasant, and went out of their way to help whenever they could. I loved it. The decor is minimalistic and efficient. Everything works exactly like you expect it to in Germany. It's well...

For work I had to be in Essen and got to the Hotel very late. The night porter checked us in and we got to our rooms before sitting in a very dimly lit dining room to finish some work. There is a vending machine downstairs for beer etc, but that is it. The rooms were nice and clean and...

Dear Dick, thank you very much for your feedback. Of course we have more light in our breakfast room - I am disappointed that our staff was not attentive enough to turn it on...That's a no go. Because of the Wlan - I am glad that we will soon have an open Wlan without all this devices ;) Best regards...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Dir Sir, thank you very much that you have taken some time for our assessment form. It is very important for us to hear from our guests if there is anything to improve for the next stay.

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...

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...
