I booked a room at the Grey Hotel at the very last minute but it was the right decision! An unassuming exterior, I was greeted warmly after a long drive and checkin was a breeze. The room is simple but impeccably clean and comfortable. Modern furnishings and plenty of light helped make the room feel airy and larger than it... More

while at the hotel the shower head broke clean off. I was informed we would be charged for this, I refused as I did not break it, it was broken when we arrived. Today I discovered the hotel had charged me £37 taken out of my account, without my consent or knowledge. I emailed and was told this was for... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in March. The hand held shower attachement was leaking badly when I used it and then fell off. The following day the receptionist told me she was charging us €15 for breaking it, I said we had not broken and were not payong for it. She was disbelieving and said she would need to discuss...

Very nice hotel, nice atmosphere, great breakfast, clean rooms, big bathrooms, no carpet on the floor, amneties in the bathroom, rooms to the inner courtyard with balcony - and all that just for less than 100 € per night. That's a great deal. You don't have to book the hotel parking, there is a public parking next door that you... More

I chose this hotel for the location (traveling by train, and going to a concert near the station - both not even a 5 minute walk). the staff is nice indeed, and the hotel reasonably clean (though when you take the strangely slow elevator, you get a good look through the glass at chewing gum and old leaves on the...

The Grey is a fantastic friendly hotel located in the best possible way for exploring the city. It is 2 minutes away from the entrance to the main train station, 5 minutes away from the high street. You can get to the underground station within 5 minutes. There is an interesting cafe/bar in an old tram nearby on the Kempstrasse.... More

Hotel has large rooms and comfortable big size beds. Our 3-bed room, actually was 2 bedroom apartment. Location is perfect, near central station and main pedestrian zone and streets. You have a big shopping mall nearby and a lot of cafes and restaurants.

I stayed at this hotel whilst going to a champion’s league game at the Dortmund football stadium. The hotel is not 10 minutes away from the stadium like it says on the web its about 40 minutes walk away! Its 10 minutes by underground train! I felt a little mislead, as I had wanted to stay in a hotel that... More
