Hotel Esplanade is located a short 5-minute walk from all of the Rudolfplatz gay bars, including ExCorner, Exile, Die Mumu, and Hennes’ Terrace. It’s a no-frills independent hotel offering great value in a central, super gay-friendly location. Rooms are compact yet modern, clean, and very comfortable. The triple rooms make for a very affordable option for groups and some of the rooms have balconies overlooking the street.
