just the basics”

wifi in the room, friendly staff, large comfortable bed

In general, our stay at Hotel Esse was pleasant and comfortable. My considerations in booking a room are that 1) the bed is large, 2) wifi available in the room, and 3) breakfast comes with the room rate. Hotel Esse provided all that, but I have decided that I no longer should be limited by my number 3 requirement. Hotel Esse provided a menu but most of the items were not available. The food wasn't great either. Staff cleaned our room every day, but did not replace toiletries daily (in fact, they took out the used soap). It's little things like that that make one decide not to go back.

Almost perfect. Just a bit of noise”

Last time, i stayed at 201 . Its now clear to me that it is a connecting room with 202. The reason why the other guests on 202 can be heard. But now my family stayed at 202, it was quiet. My husband and I stayed at 207. Now a noise can be heard from the wall. I have no idea what it is and i have no time to complain due to our busy sched. Bacon upon breakfast has an odd taste. But the rest is ok especially the staff are welcoming and proactive. We will definitely stay again.
