Welcome to ECOINN Hotel on Campus!

In the heart of Esslingen's city, right next to the historic Old Town and the famous Esslingen Medieval Christmas Market lies our house. Urban - but thanks to a dead end not on a busy street - located, in front with a view of the campus of the historic university, in the back with a view of the Neckar Canal rippling by and the Maille Park (with playground) we offer you since 2009 sustainable, ecological accommodation in 59 healthy rooms.

The whole EOCINN team welcomes you with warm hospitality - feel at home with us.

Nachhaltiges Hotel in Esslingen

The unique hotel

The ecological profile of our plus-energy hotel is particularly unique: since opening in 2009, we have been the hotel with the lowest CO2 footprint per overnight stay. We generate electricity and heat "fresh" in house from 100 % Neckar hydroelectric power - made possible by our own turbine and the historic water wheel - and are thus self-sufficient in energy. Due to the fact that on average we feed about 2/3 of the generated electricity into the public grid, the calculated CO2 emissions of the CO2 footprint are more than compensated.

Your sustainable hotel

In addition, all rooms are equipped with sustainable materials that are harmless to the environment. On the waste-free breakfast buffet, we offer you almost exclusively high-quality products from the region (over 90 %) and in organic quality (approx. 80 %), for which we are also allowed to use the organic seal.

Even if you suffer from allergies, you can feel at home with us. Perfume-free soap/shampoo is available at reception and we are also happy to cater to your wishes at breakfast. Important: Let us know what we can do for you when you book.

Introducing: our neighbours for culture.

We offer leisure and creative activities and provide rehearsal rooms and workshops. Our services also include Café Fuenfbisneun, a bar that is open in the evenings. We are the place for young culture in Esslingen.

We offer space and support for concerts, parties, readings, lectures, theatre, art, workshops or poetry slams. As an event venue, we are also known outside Esslingen. Our events are largely organised by volunteers. The house continues to be home and meeting place for a variety of groups who work, plan, organise and celebrate in the Komma.
