“Great value, no 4*”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This must be one of the most interesting looking and decorated hotels I know (from the inside). Convienently located a short stroll from both central station (bus, train) and city center, you enter another world when entering this hotel... Just look at the pictures. However, a hotel without airco and with plastic protective on the breakfast table doesnt feel like 4*. On the other side, the 'hostal prices' cant be beaten, and you get a real comfy room with free wifi and great beds. The breakfast is very reasonably priced for all it offers! I definitely disagree with people stating the matrasses are too hard. Of course, this comes to your personal liking, but in my opinion they were totally fine. All in all a hotel I could certainly return to.

This hotel looks great but lacks class. The bedrooms are comfortable but no aircon... The night we stayed there was a police raid and all were Evacuated at 1am in the morning. The WIFI is rubbish.. The food mediocre!!! However it's clean and tidy and 5 mins walk to train station and centre. Nextdoor is the pfeffercorn restaurant which is great... So not bad cud be better

have just returned from this hotel stayed 7 nights, found the hotel excellent value for money, hotel staff very pleasant. The room was large very clean and linen towels changed every day just watch out for the power shower make sure your shower curtain is fully inside the shower or you could have a very wet floor although that's not a big problem as it will soon drain away. The hotel is in an excellent spot, very short walk to the main station and across the road from a ubann and at the top of the main shopping street felt very safe walking the streets even late in the evening. I honestly can't see how anyone would find fault with the hotel, stunning entrance , didn't pay and take breakfast as you can eat cheaper down the main street overall great value in a clean and pleasant city

This was a quick stop on the way to Berlin which was OK in most ways. Bedrooms large and had everything for an overnight stop. Great shower.

Underground garage. Efficient reception. One tip, don't look at the public area, it is a chaos of marble and velour. It was so upsetting to be in we only stayed for one drink and regretted that too,

The reception area of this hotel I found was over the top. The decor and the seating area is in serious need of an update. The room was a good size but very basic. There was no air con either, and I thought being an advertised 4 star hotel, this would be a must! So my husband and I had to sleep with the windows open due to the very warm weather and this faced what must have been one of the busiest roads in Dortmund! Constant noise. The bathroom was ok, a good size but nothing special. The shower was very nice though. I found the reception staff quite rude and not interested. The hotel was a good location for the main centre, which was ideal.

After a few days travel, we descended upon the Unique. Although there is no air conditioning which I don't normally care for, the windows all open to fresh air. Most hotels have you sealed in making air conditioning mandatory. The bed, comfortable.The room, spacious. The bath, functional.

The hotel is at the end (or start) of the town shopping. There is a restaurant (Pfeffercorn) attached to the hotel that serves steaks from around the world.

All in all, old world charm. The staff was friendly and resolved minor issues quickly.

The Rewe (two blocks away) has cheap liquor and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

Room Tip: Get one on the front of the hotel.
