the niu Cobbles -
Welcome to Essen Südviertel

Hotel + design + city flair. Our the niu Cobbles is a reference to Essen's history reflected in its name. The former coal-mining area has become a cosmopolitan metropolis and this is also expressed in the design of our hotel: urban, colorful and casual as an expression of the diversity of the region. This is where short breakers, families with children and business travelers meet. From the centrally located hotel you can easily get to the city on foot or on two wheels: Just leave your car in our parking lot (for a fee).

The heart of the hotel is the lobby. Open to all, ideal for meeting, chatting or relaxing and stylishly designed, it is a real feel-good place. At the 24-hour bar with food offer you will be served around the clock and the reception is manned 24/7 as well. In the morning we welcome you to the breakfast buffet and in the evening there are delicacies in the restaurant. By the way, there is free high-speed WiFi in the entire hotel, including the rooms.

You can also rely on modern comfort in the rooms with flat-screen TV, Teufel Boomster, screen mirroring and USB ports. Two of our 146 rooms are handicapped accessible. All guest rooms have a double bed or twin beds, air conditioning and soundproof windows that open and a safe. Another tip for families on a tour of discovery in the Ruhr region: Kids up to the age of 12 stay with us at a special rate!

Wir sind bereits mehrfach im niu Cobbles eingekehrt und haben jedes Mal die freundliche Art des Personals, die Gemütlichkeit des Zimmers und das wirklich tolle Frühstück genossen. Zudem ist die Lages des Hotels wunderbar zentral. Im Gegensatz zu manch anderem Hotel ist das niu Cobbles für uns wie ein Zuhause auf Zeit. Sehr gern verbringen wir unseren nächsten Aufenthalt in Essen wieder im niu Cobbles.

Mooi hotel, aardige personeel, schoon, dichtbij het centrum

Exzellentes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, freundliche Mitarbeiter, Bitte um ruhiges Zimmer wurde erfüllt. Bad picobello, gute Handtücher und Badausstattung. Angenehme Kissen/Decken/Bettwäsche. Einziger kleiner Abstrich: Matratze fand ich zu weich und zu federnd - hat meinen Mann aber nicht gestört, ist also individuell. Wir haben schon mehrfach im niu cobbles übernachtet und buchen auch gerne wieder.
