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

Inside it was really modern and clean. Rooms were big and comfy beds/bedding. great night sleep and breakfast in the morning was tasty... More

We enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Grey Hotel. Location is great, right near the station and town centre. We asked for a high floor, quiet room, and the hotel gave us that. The room was simply decorated, light and bright, corner room, opening windows, spacious bathroom with everything working well. Bedding was clean and comfortable. Room was equipped with... More

This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Dortmund. The room was clean and functional and the buffet breakfast the following morning was great. The only one constructive comment I can make is about WiFi. It worked fine in the reception area but not in the room!
