Had a brilliant stay at hotel esplanade! The food was amazing, our room was incredibly clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. The staff were lovely too and had great english! Would definitely stay here again. Felt like a home away from home.

The outside looks a bit shabby and the old fotos underline this, but the interior is nice, new clean and friendly. Centrally located with friendly stuff and good breakfast. I'll come again, if I have to go back to Dortmund :-)

I stayed in one of the apartments for 3 weeks. The apartment itself is pretty old fashioned but it's clean, quiet, and comfortable. There is a grocery store right across the street and it's a 5 min walk to the train station. It is a good choice for a few week stay.

This hotel is nothing much to look at from the outside - a fairly tired looking pre-fab, but inside there is nice decor and the staff were very welcoming. We stayed in an executive room on the top floor at the front of the building which was a good quality room with all the expected amenities. There were electrically operated... More

This place was built around 1960 if the plaque in the 2 (!!) persons elevator is correct. Unfortunately a lot of details in the hotel rooms are also still from 1960's (extremely small, furniture, décor, single bed with wave shaped mattress, lack of A/C). A move next day to the newer part of the hotel was a very wise decision... More

Centrally located 4* Hotel, reasonably priced bar , breakfast 15 euros but plenty of choice and able to revisit as often as required. Didn't eat in the evenings here as plenty of choice within a short distance from the hotel

The special rooms are very large and well appointed with free internet and breakfast. Just under 100 euros. Though on the main road and 5 mins from the city center, the hotel has a quiet ambience. Though absence of any restaurant service on a Sunday evening is a let down for travellers arriving from other parts of the world. The... More
