We were there in Bochum for my cousin's wedding. We were a large group of relatives from around the world staying in Bochum for the wedding. Our stay at IBIS was very good.

The hotel is adequate for short stays but not for long. For some reason I found the room size small even compared with other Ibis hotels. Second the wifi (as usual with Ibis) does not allow voice over IP. It was just mere browsing and the speed was just adequate. The service was nice and the best asset of the... More

Room was quite small, but with everything we needed for one night. Clean and light. the only minus - during the night we had a choice either to switch on A/C, which was quite strong even on the lowest level or keep the window open to the noisy street. Otherwise - great location, very close to Central train Station. The... More

The rooms are clean and tidy; the economy room I stayed was not too congested nor was too lavish with furnishings. The wifi did not work. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was advertised as free.

We based ourselves here for our recent trip to watch Liverpool in Dortmund. Great hotel in a great location. Straight out of the back of the station and there it is. Very quiet considering it is next door to a busy station. Rooms are small but not as small as the bathroom. Couldn't swing anything around in there!! If you... More

Hotel is well positioned right next to the station so, if like us you are looking to use it to travel into Dortmund, its in a perfect place. Staff were friendly, efficient and quick during check-in. Room (120) was clean and tidy but small. However not small enough to complain but the bathroom was. This was so small you could... More

The hotel is literally 2-3 minutes walk from the train station. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The hotel itself is mid century I would guess and the corridors look dated. The rooms themselves are modern, clean and the beds were comfy. Bochum is not a particularly busy city so noise was not really a problem from outside but... More
