I often get to travel from Paris to Berlin by car and it’s a long trip, like 12hours and It can be pretty intense…yep even if i am not the one driving. Last time i was traveling i was luckily invited to the Atlantic Congress Hotel in Essen, located halfway. I read great reviews and i wanted to give it a try.
It is a brand new hotel, which is pleasant as you feel you are the first one to ever be using your room. FABULOUS! Services and amenities are totally what you would expect in a 4 stars hotel: spacious and comfortable rooms, a big bar with big cocktail list, a restaurant and… a SPA! Yassss to spa life forever!
I immediately loved the vibe of the hotel, very peaceful, dominant green colors, a lot of plants…and my room had a direct view on the Park. Perfect! The hotel is very well located, near Essen Messe and only 10 minutes away from the city center. So convenient when you can just walk around!
The little gem i found is 5 minutes walk from the Hotel, and it’s one of the best Korean restaurants i have been to: “Sa Rang Bang”. Pure traditional korean family food. A must go !
Unfortunately i didnt have much time to wander around the city, but i enjoyed relaxing at the hotel’s lovely spa area, eating apples, dancing around, and trying all the different steam rooms.
Breakfast at the Atlantic Congress Hotel is WOW! a huge buffet with a LOT of choices from salty to sweet… As it was my birthday on the next morning, i had a MIMOSA to celebrate! YUM YUM!
I highly recommend this hotel! Very high quality, and affordable price for a 4 stars hotel of that level. Go go go if you’re ever in Essen.
Thank you to the lovely team of Atlantic Congress Hotel Essen for having me. ❤
