Best Western Hotel Ypsilon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's a great hotel, the staff are very polite and really professional, rooms are extra clean and organized, every service is done with attention to details. morning breakfast is nit to be missed, and the food served in the restaurant is very good.

I cannot fault the staff at this hotel. Check in and reception was very fast, efficient and helpful. An under ground carpark is available but my 4x4 looked a tight squeeze so i parked outside the main entrance which is not an issue. Breakfast is on for a long time so theres no need to rush after a heavy night. The hotel is 10 minutes walk away from some great little bars, we can recommend Fitzpatricks Irish bar. Also 10 minutes from great restaurants and McDonalds if you want fast food. We spent a weekend here for a festival. I would 100% stay again. The only negative is the rooms are very hot if you do not live in the area. Maybe a fan could be an option? Otherwise great staff, facilities and stay.

Found myself back in Essen, so of course back to the Ypsilon. As usual I wasn't disappointed. A great warm, friendly welcome, a comfortable sleep, relaxed atmosphere, and the best Sunday breakfast available. All coupled with a relaxed late check-out. These guys know what their guests need and work to that agenda rather than to their own as most hotels do! I'll be back very soon!

I'm no Tony Curtis but I feel like a Jack Lemmon for staying here. Be warned there is no air conditioning and boy it's warm. The curtains were closed to keep out the heat and opening the windows lets in the street noise.

When doing business at the local Messe Expo, this hotel is very convenient, nearby, and comfortable. The rooms are not big, but beds are good. The bar is small, but the service to good and they serve tasty popcorn, if you wish. The included breakfast to good for all Western tastes. I will return to this hotel next time in Essen.

It's a bit out of the town centre and looks a bit 1970s or Soviet in style from the outside, but inside its all very efficient, clean and welcoming. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff, large rooms (though a bit dark, could do with more lights). Breakfast buffet was usual business hotel, pretty good.

I had a very pleasant 2 day stay for a business visit to the Essen area. Very friendly staff, nice clean room with good design. The hotel has a good location with quick access to the autobahn. Nice bar and restaurant. I had dinner at the restaurant and was impressed with the food quality. Limited menu but good vegetarian choices were offered. Good parking below the hotel. The covered area provides a dry access to the car on a rainy day. Will repeat on my next visit to Essen

Rooms are comfy if a little small, food is OK, staff are freindly and welcoming. The only real gripe is that I found the rooms stiflingly hot staying there in the summer and it's by a main road so noisy if you open the window. It's not terribly convenient for the U-bahn

This hotel has smoking rooms. Staff fantastic, room a little cosy but clean, hotel not near city centre, rooms are a reasonable rate however you do have to pay for breakfast and parking, would we stay at this hotel again YES

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.
