I had the opportunity to spend five nights at the Marriott Courtyard Bochum Stadtpark in Bochum Germany mid November while traveling for business. Every aspect of my stay was perfect.
The hotel is located in a city park and is very quiet. My room, #306 was on the top floor (4th level actually – designated in the elevator as “DG”) and was probably the quietest room that I have ever stayed in. I never once heard any noise or another quest. I really appreciate a quiet room.
My room was large as compared to other rooms that I have experienced in Europe. The furnishings were similar to other Courtyard hotels that I have stayed in with a very comfortable king-size bed that had electrical outlets easily accessible on the headboard.
There was a mini refrigerator in the room as well as an electronic safe in the large closet. An iron and ironing board were also in the closet.
The desk was a two-level affair in which the lower level would pull out and was angled so that you could easily watch TV also. The TV was a flat-screen HD TV and all the programming was high-definition also. There were at least two English language channels, but I really did not look to see what other programming was available. The TV seemed to offer an internet service and came with a keyboard. As I understand it internet through the TV was a separate service than the wired or Wi-Fi service the hotel offered.
Being a Platinum Marriott Rewards member, internet service was complimentary. Each day I would receive a code from the front desk which would work on both my laptop which was connected by wire and my phone via Wi-Fi. The service was fast and completely reliable.
The bathroom in my room was reasonable size with a combination tub and shower. Lighting was excellent and there were adequate towels, a hair dryer and large magnifying mirror. A robe and slippers were also provided.
The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. One of my associates arrived early in the morning and they were able to give him a room which was very much appreciated. Throughout our stay, any request was handled in a very friendly and professional manner.
We had breakfast most mornings at the hotel. The charge was 17 Euros. It was a breakfast buffet, but much more extensive than the buffets offered by U.S. Courtyard hotels. Our group also had dinner two nights at the hotel and service was excellent and also very friendly. Each of us had brought a special wine with us and the corkage charge was very reasonable. The selection at dinner was very good and I thought the quality was very good also!
The hotel has a large lobby with a bar and a quiet area behind the front desk. Complimentary coffee was available in the lobby from about 6:00 AM each morning. There was also a “micro market” across from the front desk with drinks and snacks.
The hotel had a nice exercise room on the top floor with a good view of the park. Adjacent were showers and a sauna.
The hotel had complimentary parking outside of the hotel or for a very reasonable 5 Euros enclosed parking underneath the hotel.
The Courtyard Bochum Stadtpark was clean, quiet and the staff very helpful and friendly. Our group of seven liked the hotel so much that we have already booked our rooms for next November!
