“Hollywood type hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This hotel was a very fun place to stay. The hotel is decorated very lavishly as well as in the rooms. The hotel was open pretty late so you could check in later if needed. The room had a great bathroom with an enormous tub. I was able to get an extra pillow without problems. The hotel is right across the street from the downtown shopping area and about a 10 minute walk from the main train station. Our room was in the back where they were doing renovating so we didn't get to open our window. The mattress was very hard and I had a hard time sleeping, but extra pillows did help. The breakfast was way overpriced, so we just ate at places downtown. The internet was free and that was great.

Breathtakingly pompous hotel, never seen anything like it, behind the ordinary facade there's marble floor to ceiling, chandeliers and Louis XIV golden furniture, a throne in your room and even the emergency exit info is in a fat golden frame. Very reasonable price, fine room. Cold and inefficient service. Not welcoming. Breakfast costs extra, which is such an inhospitable thing to do.

During my visit to Dortmund I did a little research and found out about Unique Hotel. To my surprise, this hotel unlike many that are located nearby the Central Train Station was GREAT!

PRO

Location. The hotel is perfect for any person who wants to walk to downtown and commute outside of Dortmund without too much trouble, literally crossing the street (front of the hotel) is the main street to downtown. And then you have the Ubahn (Westentor) right next to the hotel if you have to go out of downtown, which it was my case (work was in Brackel).

I traveled with my family and the room was huge, perfect for kids to create a mess and parents have to clean it before check out! The shower (big deal for us) was super and wifi was smooth.

CONS

It is located in a popular street where at nights it gets loud, unless you are looking at the back, expect definitely some noise. I had no trouble but our baby did as he was waking up every time cars were ''racing" on the street.

It is also very bright during the day and it get hot in the room, there is no AC in our room so it forces to keep the windows open at night.

Overall, I would definitely come back to the hotel keeping in mind that I will have to request a less noisy room.

Happy Travels!

Even by German standards, this is a great hotel. The lobby is amazing, the wifi free and speedy, and the room spacious, tidy and has all the amenities a business traveller needs. Breakfast wasn't included, so we ended up going elsewhere for that. Also a huge desk in the room, which can be transformed into a mini-office. I'll be definitely using this next time I'm in Dortmund

The hotel is perfect! It is located in the heart of the city, right next to the shopping streets and the Central Station. I was amazed by the inside of the hotel, it's very different from what i have seen as furnish in a hotel before. The hotel is spacious, I personally liked the huge reception hall and the aquariums! There is also a smoking lounge, thumbs up for that. The rooms are also very nice!

Excellent hotel situated in the centre of Dortmund, just across from the shopping precinct. The hotel lobby / reception area is fantastic. The staff were extremely helpfull. The rooms were spacious and clean, with all the necessary accessories . Its a 20 min walk up to Borrusia Dortmund's Iduna Signal stadion. Definately recommend
