The special rooms are very large and well appointed with free internet and breakfast. Just under 100 euros. Though on the main road and 5 mins from the city center, the hotel has a quiet ambience. Though absence of any restaurant service on a Sunday evening is a let down for travellers arriving from other parts of the world. The...

We only stayed at this hotel for one night, and arrived in after dark, but found the hotel without any difficulty. Convenient walk to the Christmas Markets. Was quite expensive but it was a Saturday night in peak season.

The hotel is great located and the rooms a rather nicely appointed being in the city centre the private carpark is a added feature. however for me a hotel shows really off when I get greeted with a smile which I did not get yet when you call the hotel you hear this very vibrant staff answering which makes you...

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.

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...

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.

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...

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...
