Select Hotel Handelshof -
Welcome to Essen Stadtkern

The Select Hotel Handelshof Essen is located in the center of the Ruhr metropolis, directly at the main train station and only 300 meters from the cathedral. Housed in the historic Handelshof building, the city hotel offers 198 modern rooms and attractive meeting facilities directly in the city center. The five variable meeting rooms can be divided or combined, so that events with up to 120 people are possible - whether private family celebrations, conferences or corporate events. The university and the fair trade Essen are also quickly accessible from the Select Hotel Handelshof Essen, so that the location is also suitable for fair visitors or participants of university events.

The tastefully furnished single and double rooms as well as the suites, which can also accommodate three people, are between 21 and 50 m² in size. We are happy to set up an extra bed or baby crib. All rooms have a minibar, free high-speed WiFi and a large selection of movies via the Select library. With all concerns you can always contact the 24h reception.

In the morning we welcome you to an extensive breakfast - arranged according to your choice from the buffet. In the evening we look forward to seeing you again in Jimmy's Bar. Our bar is famous throughout the Ruhr area for its 130 different types of whiskey, but of course you can also get other drinks here. Whether it's a business trip, a conference or a city break, feel well accommodated at Select Hotel Handelshof Essen and look forward to a pleasant stay!

Top Lage, alle sehr freundlich, sehr guter Service

Sehr schönes Hotel , sehr sauber , nettes und freundliches Personal. Sehr gute zentrale Lage,das Hotel befindet sich gleich gegenüber vom Bahnhof und liegt am Anfang der Fußgängerzone zur Innenstadt. Leider war an diesem ( sehr warmen) Wochenende die Klimaanlage im Hotel ausgefallen , wir bekamen nach einer 1. warmen Nacht am nächsten Tag einen Ventilator aufs Zimmer und haben die ganze Zeit mit offenem Fenster geschlafen. Wir konnten uns an der Rezeption aus dem Kühlschrank zu jeder Zeit kaltes Sprudelwasser nehmen ( kostenlos) . Technische Defekte können leider immer passieren . Bei der Abreise hat man uns zugesagt das wir 15% vom Hotelpreis für das Wochenende erstattet bekommen.

Sehr angenehmes Hotel

Wir hatten ein sehr großes Zimmer das sehr ruhig gelegen war, mit Blick in die City. Das Frühstück ist sehr gut und reichhaltig alles da was man so braucht. Der Frühstücksraum ist dazu noch sehr gemütlich und die Mitarbeiter sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Alles im allem ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt. Vielen Dank dafür.
