“Comfortable For A Weekend Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We booked this hotel as a desperate measure having decided to travel to Germany 2 nights prior to travel & with most accommodation fully booked due to a weekend exhibition. Despite not being our first, second or even third choice we were pleasantly surprised with the standard of service provided. Staff were friendly & able to 'point us in the right direction' if & when required. The hotel itself is situated on the outskirts of the centre with a business park within proximity & as we had access to a vehicle, we experienced no issues getting to and from the hotel. However, be prepared to pay £6 a night to park your vehicle at the hotel car park!! Also note that the airport is located approximately an hour away from Dùsseldorf Airport. The rooms are small but adequate for a weekend break if you're a couple. As we booked this hotel at the very last minute, we paid well over the standard room cost. However it is worth the stay for the standard charges stipulated.

Nice quiet and clean hotel in Dortmund. Rooms spacious enough nice and clean bathroom. Continental Breakfast was good. Nice restaurant 2 minutes from the hotel. Secured car park but can park outside on the street. Fantastic garden 10 minutes from the hotel with 3000 different roses and what's more important the hotel is located 10 minutes from signal induna park Borussia Dortmund FC stadium.

We stayed here for 2 nights with friends on a break to Dortmund
Our flight arrived at 9.20am, we booked a taxi to the hotel and asked if we could leave our luggage until 16.00 when we could book in, but the receptionist told us we could go straight to the rooms which were ready.
Very pleasant stay and staff very helpful.
This hotel is just across the road from the station with frequent trains into the city centre.
We enjoyed the stay so much we are intending to return for the Christmas markets.

We used this hotel as a one night stop after a tour of Germany, before flying out in the morning. It fitted the bill perfectly, the rooms were adequate, if a little on the small side, and the breakfast was served early and was just right. For a longer stay it might restrict your options, and there did not appear to be an awful lot to do in the vicinity. We also got a good deal for the room as it was a Saturday night stay. Reception and bar service was excellent. There were a couple of filling stations on the way to the airport, both were more expensive than the Autobahn prices so it pays to leave a little time if you need to hunt for a better price to re-fuel your hire car.

Good choice if you have to stay one night and continue your trip. Close to airport ( on the middle way between airport and city center. Tram station is very close, so if you not in hurry, and want save 20-25 euro for round trip, you can choose tram.
The breakfast is ok for as for 3 stars. Nothing interesting around the hotel.
The only disappointing thing - they could not offer non smoking room with kingsize bed, only separate beds. So we had to stay in smoking, and the smell in room was awfull.

The hotel rooms are small but adequate. Nothing really outstanding about the place, and it has few eating choices.

They were nice to us, and arranged for a taxi to the airport.

We are loyal members of Choice Hotels, and we know why.

Room Tip: Always ask for an upgrade.

I stayed here for 2 nights in April. The hotel is fairly modern and clean. It is located about 15 mins from town centre on the U bahn. The hotel can be seen from the station so no problems locating it.

We arrived at 10.30pm and were disappointed to find that they could not supply us with any food. This was not due to the time, they just dont serve food other than a bland continental breakfast. We went to the room and found 2 comfy beds but the thinnest pillows I have seen. I asked for more and was told they didnt have any. Not great from holiday inn. 2 night poor sleep followed.

All in all I think you will find better value closer to the city.

Room Tip: its a very quiet area and hotel in general so most rooms should be ok
