“Worst than expected”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

I visited Bielefeld for a business trip and I stayed at Arcadia. Well, first of all, they didn’t find my reservation but they managed to solve the problem. The big surprise was when I entered the room: I couldn’t believe an Hotel right next to the Town Hall will be like that. Old, dirty, mold in the bathroom and the worst, the noise. It is right next to the tram and you cannot sleep at night. They even give you earplugs. Breakfast was speechless. I didn’t drink coffee in the morning because of the look of the thermo bottle (orange-old). Anyway, I will avoid coming back to this hotel. They urgently need a refurbishment.

Rooms more or less like a summercamp, with three beds, small desk and a CRT TV (didn't see one in a hotel for years now!); if you travel in parties of three, good value, othewise consider something else.

Stayed here for one night on a short business trip to Bielefeld. Location very convenient close to Bielefeld HBF station. Rooms are nice and large but the interiors are a little old and tired. Carpets very faded and need replacing. Cleanliness could be better too, there were rmnants of previous guests hair on floor and in the bathroom. A very nice American style cocktail bar and restaurant serving a variety of Tex Mex and burgers just downstairs also an Italian trattoria so very easy for dining options.

We stayed here for one night. The hotel staff was very kind and helpfull.
The parking costs 9 euro's and for that you can park your car in a parking garage.
The room was good, beds were good, nothing to complain about.
The location of the hotel is excellent, in the middle of the town.
We would recommend this hotel to all our friends

It was fine, the rooms were decent. I did find an old gummy bear und my bed while I was checking if I left something. The tv was from the 90s and the room was not the most modern. The reception is open 24 hours which is very good.
