“Very decent (if somewhat dated) hotel in a good location”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We chose this hotel as we were visiting an exhibition and the price was within our budget range. The hotel is located in the city centre, just around the corner from a large and pleasant shopping mall. The bar feels as if you have just stepped into an eighties time warp, and the decor in the rooms is a bit dated, but in general everything is in very good and clean condition. Staff are friendly and efficient. Our room (209) was quite large with a sofa area, only disadvantage was that we were right under the hotel's neon sign which did shine through the curtains quite a bit at night. Bathroom has a good shower and is well-equipped. Breakfast is great - a good selection of cold and hot food and again friendly service staff.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms under the neon sign.

My husband, friend and I stayed here during our travels around Europe. Wow, we were really impressed with the hotel, our room was very spacious and had lots of natural light.

It was such a relief to finally have a bathroom/shower/vanity that you could easily move around in, compared to a lot of other hotels we stayed.

We looked forward to breakfast each morning, as it was absolutely amazing - we still talk about it!

Centrally located, super close to shops / cafes / restaurants.

When we're back in Dortmund, we will be staying here again. :)

firstly got to say the reception staff made me feel more like i was at home then at a hotel welcomed me with a smile got to my room found it was not ready as the cleaner was still in there so had to go back to reception and wait the room was a bit small. The bed was a lot smaller then i am used to not very wide so had to lay in a position i'm not used to,The breakfast was good. The main draw back was that the pillows on the bed looked like they had seen better days and no milk in the room had to go out and shop for that only one english chanel on the tv and that was cnn. also watch out for the city stay tax that they hit you with as you book out for my 5 day stay it was 15 euro but you are not told when you get there so save some money for this. the bathrooms are good .

I stayed at the hotel for one night, because I have an early flight in the morning. The room was nice and clean, but a little old. The bed was very cosy, but the pillow too soft. The people at the reception spoke English and were very kind. If you leave the hotel even in 5 a.m. in the morning you can have breakfast if you want. The location is 5 min walk from the central station.

Very good location near the railway station and shopping streets. At least those rooms which have windows to backyard are quiet. Nice warm colours though the bed could be softer. Friendly staff but not many of them, so be prepared to wait a while. Good breakfast.

No air-conditioning in the room which is normal in this price category.

They didn't tell about city tax before I was paying - so it cost some 4 euro more than confirmed.
