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!

It's all been said. Very nice, clean hotel, minimalistic, literally two minutes from the station, very close to the shops and bars. Looks new. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was good with lots of choice and the room was spacious with TV and tea/coffee making facilities and mini bar, spacious bathroom with walk-in... More

Perfect location. Very friendly staff. Nice buffet. Very big and clean rooms. Its not very quiet but its okey for a bussines trip or shopping. The central street is around 50 metres nearby the hotel and its cosy to stay there.

Myself and two other girls stayed in Dortmund for 3 nights. The hotel was absolutely fantastic. A two minute walk from Dortmund Hauptbahnof, and also minutes from the main shopping area, bars and clubs. If you are staying for the Christmas market then again, a great location. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, took our bags when we were... More

Literally 5 minutes from the railway station but in a quiet street this friendly hotel with excellent staff makes even a one night stay enjoyable. This hotel whilst not doing evening meals delivers an excellent breakfast with a wide choice. Beds are very comfortable, rooms are adequate size. Pricing is competitive.

I stayed in The Grey for 2 nights on a business trip to Dortmund. They offered me a bigger room with no charge. But since I prefered having a balcony I chose the smaller room. This one was still plenty big enough. The bathroom was fairly big and had a great shower. The whole room was very clean and I... More
