I stayed here for two nights when unusual heat wave struck Northern Germany. The hotel looked old and our room was very basic but very clean. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and one of them spoke good English. Breakfast was also reasonably-priced with good selections of cold meals (and some cooked dishes). The hotel provides free car park....

I stayed here to attend a concert at Veltins Arena. The hotel allowed me to have my ticket sent to them rather than to Australia, which saved me EU30. They held the ticket safely for 8 months. Service from the desk staff was excellent - very friendly, and showing great patience with my basic German (although they spoke good English)....

We stayed here before a Champion's League match. Two single rooms without bathroom/wc but both comfortable with washbasin. Good inclusive breakfast. Easy walking distance from the Veltin's Arena. Hotel easy to find as it is right next to a petrol station across from the parking for the park and the stadium.

Single room with shared bathroom for £28 per night, including continental buffet breakfast. Excellent value for money. If all you want is somewhere to to lay your head for a night and quality/facilities aren't important, then this place should be top of your list. Booked for a visit to the Schalke 04 Arena (10 minutes walk away), I was looking...
