Receptionist was unkind and not helpful. We arrived with 3 kids, stroller etc. We had stairs to climb although it said it was accessible for disabled people! No indication how. The room was under the (poorly insulated ) roof and had no airco. It was too hot so our baby didn't sleep. The accommodation was outdated and dirty. Internet impossible to access. The TV was good. The breakfast was quite good and personnel in the restaurant was good. We asked for pen and paper for the kids, they clearly didn't have anything for them but tried their best to get us paper and blackboard pencils, nice. All together. This is a ok hotel for a night as a businessman if you have internet provided. Absolutely not recommended with children. Finally, the surroundings and view were excellent too bad for the very outdated hotel!

Stayed here for a concert at Veltins Arena. Bed was not comfortable but other amenities were reasonable. We ate at the restaurant in the lobby and we enjoyed the Schnitzel. The hotel bar was very busy late at night after the concert and was the only place around to get a snack and coffee. All the staff were very helpful.

Stayed here a few times now. I think the last time will be my last. If you don't have breakfast included they will charge you about €15. The hotel was built in the 1970's and seems like it hasn't been updated since... It is very old fashioned and in need of being refurbished. I stayed in the recent heatwave - no aircon. It was unbearable. I will stay in the Courtyard Marriott from now on - a little out of the centre but more modern. The bar is the only decent part of this hotel I'm sorry to report

Stayed here on a business trip and enjoyed my stay. The rooms were big enough, clean and the breakfast selection was decent enough. The location is good since the centre as well as the train station can be reached by foot in a few minutes. The hotel would need some updating though as both the lobby as well as the rooms look too stuck in the 1980s - definitely needs a refreshment there. Also, the cleaning leadies should clean the balconies as well as I found dozens of cigarette butts there within the holes of the balcony.

I stayed here as a part of a tour group. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with plenty of walking tracks. The room was spacious but very dated , including the bathroom, but the bed was comfortable. Buffet breakfast was very nice with a good selection. If i want planning to spend time in the room I would stay there again.

Book this hotel for 2 nights. 30 minutes far from Dusseldorf airport by car, well located in between Bochum and Essen. Check in and Check out very efficient. I had diner at the Pub, with relative decent selection of food. Breakfast was well served. Internet connection would need to be improved. Overall positive impression.

The Maritim Gelsenkirchen is one of the houses our company has a business rate agreement with. Arriving at the parking lot and bringing the car in front of the entrance was easy, the check-in was really friendly and helpful with a recommendation of some restaurants. The room had a park view and was clean, but not really modern. Breakfast was ok, typically Maritim Hotel.

The good thing is that to the outside seeing an organisation booking a hotel for an event they could see it didn't cost a lot!! I mean the staff were friendly and the food is pretty good but the rooms are so old fashioned and tired it wasn't a pleasure or even a joy to stay and or relax in the room the bar was the only option. The outside needs a lick of paint and really sets the expectation for what you find inside. The park is very pretty but... the geese made so much noise during the night it was hard to sleep and it wasn't just me that was struggling so were a number of our guests. Thanks for the hospitality but you won't find me back (I hope).

Traffic noise too high Wifi not working No visible way to control room heating No iron in the room Smell of smoke Pillows way too soft No 'gratis' water Only news channels in English (common though in DE) Great shower!

I needed a place in Gelsenkirchen and Maritim is a chain I know from Travemünde and Bonn. The hotel was old but very clean, the staff was friendly and the location is excellent. They gave me a wonderful room with a view to the park. The bar was closed but there was a wonderful restaurant in the basement with the most friendly staff you could imagine.
