The overall design is very simple but clean. The shower had amazing water pressure and a consistent temperature, which I’ve learned is a real gift with European hotels. The breakfast spread had lots of tasty items to choose from, and the breakfast room is located over a canal with a nice view. The hotel does not offer parking, but we were able to find parking on the street just 1/2 a block away for free, so no problem. Walking distance to the downtown shopping area and Christmas markets.

The Esslingen medieval market is very special — highly recommend!

We also walked to the S-bahn station and took the train into Stuttgart; the walk is a bit further but was no problem for our group.

Three friends and I visited Esslingen to see the Christmas Market and stayed at Ecoinn. It is very clean, warm and very central. The bed was comfortable and the staff couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful when one of our party was a bit unwell.

They even found a travel kettle for her so she could fill a hot water bottle.

We were there for the Middle Ages/Christmas Market and this was a really good location to walk there and back very easily. Downtown, with all the restaurants, shopping and attractions is about ten minutes. The staff always easy to work with. The breakfast was very good. WiFi was average, at best. Only minor issue would be that there isn’t really any parking at the hotel.

There are about four spots across the street from the hotel that you can park in for free, but if those are taken, you must park in a garage that costs €9 per day. Overall, I would recommend the hotel for a stay in Esslingen.

A lovely hotel in a great location, very near the Christmas market. Great breakfast.

The host was very helpful when one of our party was ill. Would definitely stay again.

The location is excellent, so close to the Christmas market and shops we walked everywhere. The train station is a ten minute easy walk. Breakfast was good. Room was very clean. Bed was super comfy.

The receptionist took the time to explain to us the configuration of the Christmas Markets. We went to the second floor with our suitcases via the elevator.

Our main room and bathroom were very clean! The shower was the perfect one where water doesn’t get all over the floor.

We recently enjoyed a visit to the amazing Esslingen Christmas market and this hotel is a perfect location for this purpose. It was only a short walk away. In my mind, this hotel should vigorously market this feature as Esslingen’s medieval market is truly unique- a great atmosphere.

The hotel room room itself was very clean but overall quite tired. Besides the wear and tear, the ceiling light fixture in our room was missing its shade. While we enjoyed a smoke-free room, our daughter’s single room was not so that was a bit troublesome. In hindsight, I wish I had thought to specify non-smoking rooms or been asked of our preference at the time of booking.

We were pleased that the hotel had parking behind the building and such easy access to the S-Bahn station for our day trip into Stuttgart. We were definitely glad that we chose to stay in Esslingen and train into Stuttgart rather than the other way of around.

The breakfast was substantial with meat, cheese, yogurt, cereal and various hot foods. It was certainly ample.

Overall, we were quite pleased with our choice.
