Our room was on the 5th floor. I loved the welcome gift!! Although the weather wasn´t great I thought the terrace and bach volleyball areas were lovely. It´s a sahme the evening barbecues don´t start until June. I have attached some photos. I found the hotel was reasonably priced for the quality we received. Highly recommended.

Dear Kaiku76,

First of all, thank you to take your time in putting your impressions and addind a few pictures to it. I will share your nice words with all hotel staff.

During the last weeks we had nearly no sunny days, therefore it was difficult to use our terrace and play beachvolley. Unluckily we can not compare the german weather with Sidney´s weather. We expect to start next week with our weekly barbacues (depends on weather conditions).

We hope to see you soon again amongst us.

Best regards,

Vicente Vives

A reasonable hotel, not great facilities, but a quiet out of the way location... If that's what you want. If you want to be in the town, then choice another hotel.
Free parking.
Good food. Good service. Basic rooms.

Room Tip: Average hotel, out of town centre

Lieber N-M4F,

vielen Dank für Ihren Kommentar und, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben darüber zu schreiben.

Unser Haus befindet sich in einer sehr ruhigen Lage, obwohl Wattenscheid Zentrum nur 5 Gehminuten enfernt ist. Bochum oder Essen Zentrum sind jeweils in 10 Minuten mit (öffentlichen) Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen.

Danke, für das Lob an unsere Küche und den Service.

Wir würden uns freuen Sie bald wieder als Gast in unserem Haus begrüßen zu dürfen.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen,

Vicente Vives

I stayed in Tryp Bochum 3 nights on the first week of March. The hotel is conveniently located, the tram is very close (100 mt.), and it is very easy to get to Bochum or Gelsenkirchen. The staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful, I was positively surprised by the atmosphere they could create, making you feel like at home, be it in the bar, in the reception, or in the restaurant. I had breakfast twice and it was amazing, as well as the dinner. The reception and the bar are open 24h.
I definitely recommend it.

This hotel is situated on topt of a former coal mine. Although most buildings from the past have disappeared, some interesting examples of industrial architecture still survive. Part of the industrial landscape has been transformed into a park, with some interesting features, like a artificial mountain inviting to be climbed, some sculptures etc. Having said this, Wattenscheid itself is quite boring. Most if not all pubs seem to close early in the evening. This is partly compensated by the excellent tram link to the city centre of Bochum, although after 8 pm trams runs only every half hour (until midnight).
The hotel itself is comfortable, with an huge choice at the breakfast buffet, and big rooms. I found the staff very helpful and welcoming.

Great big rooms, Bathroom was really great an big, but in our room the aircondition did not work. Breakfast over average, but the staf asked us every 10 minutes about our roomnumner. 1 time each morning should be enough.
Quiet surroundings, near the Autobahn A40, and you will need a car to get there.

Reasonable standard of hotel in a depressed area of the Ruhr, though I thought the cost of e-mail internet was excessive for a business hotel, and the carpets in my room were pock-marked with cigarette burns (not a smoking room..). Strange that such a modern hotel did not have AC and the rooms were very uncomfortable the night (in August) I stayed there but this is probably not a very frequent problem! As other reviewers have pointed out there is nowhere within walking distance to eat or even a decent bar, but the hotel catering and service was excellent and we could sit in the garden. I would certainly stay there again if I needed to do business in the area.

Room Tip: Nothing around so no noise, any room OK.

The hotel in itself is not really bad, but when the use T-Mobile for internet and charges 8 Euros for 1 hour internet, it´s totally unacceptable. I will certainly never stay here again. 3 hours internet costs 24 Euros...
