Best Western Hotel Ypsilon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
