This was a pleasant surprise. The staff is wonderful, the breakfast was very good, and everything is new and clean. Most importantly (for me) the hotel is very quiet.
If you're taking the train to Bielefeld, this hotel is in just about the optimum location. Get out of the station and look forward, or perhaps forward and to the left. If you don't see it, you need glasses. Plus, just behind the hotel is the local tram-station hub, so you can get from the hotel to anywhere in the city for a very reasonable fare. I had no need of a taxi for five days.
Rooms are of average size for a city the size of Bielefeld. Not spacious, but certainly not small. Rooms have a hair dryer and refrigerator (which you'll have to share with the pre-stocked minibar trinkets). My room had a desk, a table and two chairs overlooking the plaza. If you forget your travel power adapter, you'll be able to borrow one from the front desk.
The only demerit is the outlandish fee for in-room wifi. WAY too high (15 euros?) in an age where US cell phones are no longer expensive to use in Europe. Just turn your cell into a mobile hotspot, and you're good to go.
Within very close walking distance are all sorts of restaurants, a pharmacy, various convenience places, and so on. You can even go to the cinema right near by.
Breakfast is a rather large buffet with choices of good, fresh foods (not pre-fab nasty stuff) and has a station for fresh omelets.
It's not trying to be a 5-star luxury resort. But it succeeds at being a very fine 4-star place. I'd stay again with no hesitation. Great Hotel.
