I can't really recommend the Hotel Résidence enough. Just a short hop out of downtown Essen via S-Bahn, you would never expect to find a 2-star michelin restaurant and hotel here, but here it is!
The rooms are very well appointed and reasonably priced at around 100EUR, but that is of course, not what you're here for... ?
Don't, please don't, stay in the hotel and not eat at the restaurant. And remember to set aside around 5 hours to get through the epic challenge that awaits you. And, do try the 10 bottle wine degustation menu alongside everything else. Actually, by the end it was all a little bit much for me! But my dining companion managed to demolish most of the dessert trolley too, goodness knows how.
I must come back someday.
