Novum Hotel Unique Dortmund Hauptbahnhof
Ranked #9 of 54 Hotels in Dortmund
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This was a quick stop on the way to Berlin which was OK in most ways. Bedrooms large and had everything for an overnight stop. Great shower.

Underground garage. Efficient reception. One tip, don't look at the public area, it is a chaos of marble and velour. It was so upsetting to be in we only stayed for one drink and regretted that too,

The reception area of this hotel I found was over the top. The decor and the seating area is in serious need of an update. The room was a good size but very basic. There was no air con either, and I thought being an advertised 4 star hotel, this would be a must! So my husband and I had to sleep with the windows open due to the very warm weather and this faced what must have been one of the busiest roads in Dortmund! Constant noise. The bathroom was ok, a good size but nothing special. The shower was very nice though. I found the reception staff quite rude and not interested. The hotel was a good location for the main centre, which was ideal.

After a few days travel, we descended upon the Unique. Although there is no air conditioning which I don't normally care for, the windows all open to fresh air. Most hotels have you sealed in making air conditioning mandatory. The bed, comfortable.The room, spacious. The bath, functional.

The hotel is at the end (or start) of the town shopping. There is a restaurant (Pfeffercorn) attached to the hotel that serves steaks from around the world.

All in all, old world charm. The staff was friendly and resolved minor issues quickly.

The Rewe (two blocks away) has cheap liquor and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance.

Room Tip: Get one on the front of the hotel.

This hotel was a very fun place to stay. The hotel is decorated very lavishly as well as in the rooms. The hotel was open pretty late so you could check in later if needed. The room had a great bathroom with an enormous tub. I was able to get an extra pillow without problems. The hotel is right across the street from the downtown shopping area and about a 10 minute walk from the main train station. Our room was in the back where they were doing renovating so we didn't get to open our window. The mattress was very hard and I had a hard time sleeping, but extra pillows did help. The breakfast was way overpriced, so we just ate at places downtown. The internet was free and that was great.

Breathtakingly pompous hotel, never seen anything like it, behind the ordinary facade there's marble floor to ceiling, chandeliers and Louis XIV golden furniture, a throne in your room and even the emergency exit info is in a fat golden frame. Very reasonable price, fine room. Cold and inefficient service. Not welcoming. Breakfast costs extra, which is such an inhospitable thing to do.

During my visit to Dortmund I did a little research and found out about Unique Hotel. To my surprise, this hotel unlike many that are located nearby the Central Train Station was GREAT!

PRO

Location. The hotel is perfect for any person who wants to walk to downtown and commute outside of Dortmund without too much trouble, literally crossing the street (front of the hotel) is the main street to downtown. And then you have the Ubahn (Westentor) right next to the hotel if you have to go out of downtown, which it was my case (work was in Brackel).

I traveled with my family and the room was huge, perfect for kids to create a mess and parents have to clean it before check out! The shower (big deal for us) was super and wifi was smooth.

CONS

It is located in a popular street where at nights it gets loud, unless you are looking at the back, expect definitely some noise. I had no trouble but our baby did as he was waking up every time cars were ''racing" on the street.

It is also very bright during the day and it get hot in the room, there is no AC in our room so it forces to keep the windows open at night.

Overall, I would definitely come back to the hotel keeping in mind that I will have to request a less noisy room.

Happy Travels!
