the niu Timber -
Welcome to Esslingen Oberesslingen

Modern design-hotel with half-timbered charm at our the niu Timber.The Esslingen region is known for its numerous half-timbered houses. The hotel the niu Timber is also a monument to this beautiful era: the design is a casual modern interpretation of the historic half-timbered building. Warm natural materials such as wood and leather combine with cool stone and concrete elements to create an easygoing coziness. The works of street artist Jurena Munoz provide quiet and loud splashes of color.

Our the niu Timber is located in the immediate proximity to Esslingen's historic city center - an excellent starting point for sightseeing. All 227 rooms are equipped with free high-speed WiFi, Smart TV, sound system, and air conditioning. If you're traveling with children we'll provide you with a cot or extra bed. For people with physical disabilities we offer rooms with level access shower. You can also book rooms for wheelchair users. If you have any questions our multilingual staff at the 24-hour reception is always there for you.

Beyond that, our the niu Timber has a lot to offer: Strengthen yourself in the morning at our optional breakfast buffet, meet other guests at the bar in the Living Lobby for a first-class drink and delicious bar food or use our co-working space to pursue your professional tasks!

Es war sehr schön und rugühig

Der Empfang war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Trotz des hohen Aufkommens, war der junge Mann sehr nett , höflich und hat alle meine Fragen in Ruhe beantwortet. Das Frühstück war allerdings nicht zu meiner Zufriedenheit. Ich musste lange auf einen Platz warten, Lange Schlange an der Kaffeemaschine und ein nicht sehr ansehnliches Frühstücksbuffet lies mir die Lust auf Frühstück vergehen. Bei so vielen Gästen müsste man sich etwas anderes einfallen lassen.
