“Worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I spent five nights here during a business trip. Located very close to the main shopping district and restaurants, and only a few blocks from the train station. The room was clean, the receptionists very helpful and friendly. It had what I needed and I would stay here again.

Really really good.
I spent there 2 weeks for work and definetely will come back everytime I will be in Dortmund.
Staff has been perfect, kind and professional. Breakfast and dinner were really good.
Location is perfect, right on the ring, really really close to the Konzerthaus and the shopping roads. Wellness area was perfect and also quality/price ratio is good.
Better the new wing of the hotel. Room 515 was the best.

Arrived late and the receptionist was great. Secure parking easy to find and leads straight to reception. Lovely bar area, good choice at breakfast. Rooms were very adequate and you even got slippers and bathrobe. Room was clean and very comfortable. probably a bit dated but to be honest was so tired I did not notice. Would stay again. Great value.

Not the best, not bad. Worst ever fitness facilities. Has sauna. room quite small, not super clean, a bit dated.
Location is alright. Probably would not recommend as I'm sure there would be a better place.

Overall this is a good hotel. Close to the city center, clean, and modern. A bit overpriced for what you get. There are several better hotels in Dortmund to a cheaper price. Take a look at them first, before you book here. But all in all we were satisfied with our stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2008

Suspect this hotel is in the process of going through a facelift... The reception and restaurant feel new, modern and stylish. The rooms were perhaps also modern and stylish in the 1970s but not in 2008. They are not shabby but just not at all up to date (except the flatscreen TV). Carpets are a bit worn. The bathrooms are various shades of brown and beige with the occasional floral detail. Got the picture? Breakfast is quite good, especially the heavy German bread.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, and there isn't a single thing I would change about it. This family owned and operated hotel is absolutely wonderful! The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are big and bright and very clean, and the restaurant is awesome! Next time we're in Germany, we will return to Dormund just so we can stay at this hotel again. I highly recommend it to all.

  • Liked — The staff were so wonderful, and the rooms were big and clean.
  • Disliked — I wish the restaurant was open more hours, but I understand why it can't be because it's a family run business.
