Sleeping Over

Different Hotels in Ruhr

Hotel frontage

Most places providing accommodation are categorised by the number of stars. A logical system for guidance yet not so ideal for discerning travellers. Some properties are declared boutique, design or art hotels that give a special twist to a sleep over for expats in a strange city.

Certain places to sleep over in the Ruhr Metropolis can fascinate or excel through their individuality and are worthy of mention. Discover hotels that are simply different for a reason, whatever that reason.

One such place is Hotel Lorenz in the marvellous neighbourhood of Rüttenscheid in Essen.
