Welcome to Select Hotel Handelshof

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, flat-screen TV and free high-speed Wifi. 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!
