A hotel for everyone
– thanks to grandpa!
Quiz question: what is the Gruga, actually? A river? A palace? An abbreviation? Bingo! In actual fact it means „Große Ruhrländische Gartenbauausstellung“, the large-scale garden show project with local exhibits our predecessors launched in 1929 to create a green oasis right at the heart of Essen. Since then, Grugapark, Grugahalle, Grugapark-Therme and the trade fair grounds have formed an ensemble that to the present day thrives as a recreational and business centre in the metropolitan region of the Ruhr. Its location alone makes our Hotel An der Gruga an ideal place to stay for business travellers, families, people craving rest and recuperation and city hoppers alike. And the modern furnishings and extensive comfort found in our hotel all the more.
The relaxed atmosphere with 40 tasteful rooms, our own gym, free Wi-Fi, LCD flat screen TV with Sky or the wellness kit (bathrobe and towels) we can provide you with on request to visit the thermal baths at Grugapark-Therme* leave no wish unfulfilled. Rü, the go-to district located directly in the neighbourhood, delivers more in culinary terms than any hotel restaurant in the world could ever offer. We would also be pleased to make you one of our famous sandwiches for a tasty snack in-between times. The underground line close by will take you anywhere in the city or the whole Ruhr region in a proverbial jiffy.
