Best Western Hotel Domicil
Ranked #25 of 79 Hotels in Bonn
Reviewed March 13, 2011

Have spent 7-8 years in Bonn for UN meetings and have stayed at most of the major hotels. This is a hidden gem near both the UBahn and a 5-minute walk to downtown restaurants in the pedestrian zone. Excellent breakfast upstairs, unique interior architecture around an oval-shaped centrum, and a fantastic Italian restaurant (La Grappa) on the premises. Ask for a room in the back on the courtyard side to avoid street noise - there is a bar/casino across the street that can get a bit loud. Rates extremely high on any QVP comparison!

Because of its central located we have booked this hotel for our business trip. If you step out of your bed, you fall literally right into the city of Bonn. The main station is only 5 minutes away.

The rooms I had are really very small. So don't bring a lot of luggage. The beds are the smallest I have seen. Usually you get a double bed but here they really still have single beds (like I had during my childhood). The walls are not very thick- I could hear my neighbour talking into his mobile phone at night. Try to avoid to sleep next to the elevator. And don't take a room in the separate building. There is a restaurant on the ground floor of this building and at 6 a.m. the pick ups come and deliver food or take away the garbage.

The breakfast has little choices. You get a plain coffee, chocolate or tee for free, for a Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato you have to pay separately. At least they have smoked salmon.

Unfortunately there aren't too many really nice hotels in Bonn.

I stayed at this Best Western hotel on a quick business trip to Bonn. The hotel is a comfortable downtown hotel. Reception service was very friendly, the receptionist had a filled in check-in form at hand when I walked in the door, and all in all I felt quite welcome.

I had booked a single room, which turned out to be very small but well designed. Hotel provided complimentary wi-fi access, which functioned well.

This hotel is acceptable for leisure travel because of its location in Bonn. It is two blocks from the main rail station and adjacent to the pedestrian old city center with shops and restaurants. The breakfast is good with hot items. The staff is courteous and friendly. It is not suitable for business travel with its dimly lite rooms, miniaturized desk and low desk stool. Wi-Fi however is free with a pass code from the front desk. The architect must have had an unusual fondness for creating hazardous steps. There is a dangerous step down upon entering the room in the brick building and a potentially hazardous stair design leading to the breakfast room. Also the brick building has no elevator and it is necessary to carry luggage up a narrow spiral stair case.

I was looking for a hotel in the centre of Bonn which was near the railway station (flying to/from Dusseldorf): Bonn Hbf is less than 10 minutes walk. The Domicil was in my price range.

I arrived about 10.30pm. Check-in was friendly and I was taken to room 4 which is in a block above the Ristorante Grappa in the courtyard. This may well be the most eccentric room in the hotel. About 2/3 of the room is occupied by the roomy en-suite. There is a small side table and minibar, two rather spartan seats, cable TV, and the ubiquitous trouser press. There are two wardrobes which are built into the en-suite unit.

The double bed is on a mezzanine reached by a ladder to the right of the en-suite. The ladder isn't vertical, but it was sufficiently so for me to decide that I'd descending it backwards. The ceiling beams above the mezzanine are low and I made contact on a couple of occasions. There's no a/c but there was a fan on the upper level, and the windows on the main level provided good ventilation during the day.

It was quiet - away from the trams in Thomas-Mann Strasse. I slept well and was undisturbed by other guests. I couldn't get a wi-fi signal, although T-mobile is supposed to be available.

I wouldn't care for this after a longhaul, but for a couple of evenings in Bonn, it was fine - not a room to forget!

This small hotel is located in a central part of Bonn, just minutes away from the central station and the U-Bahn. It is a quiet hotel with a courtyard at the back. However, if you stay on a Saturday night be prepared for noise into the early hours from the nightclub/bar that is located nearby. However, on the other nights I was there it seemed quiet enought. My room had character. The beds were comfortable and I liked the curved wall as well as the balcony looking over the courtyard. The decor is very dated. A very 1980s feel! although the room didn't look 'tired'. The hotel didn't feel like a four star hotel to me. The breakfast was Ok, but nothing special - cheap yoghurt, and orange juice. The door to the jacuzzi/sauna was locked when I tried to use it. This is a good 3 star hotel at a 4 star price.
