This hotel is situated on topt of a former coal mine. Although most buildings from the past have disappeared, some interesting examples of industrial architecture still survive. Part of the industrial landscape has been transformed into a park, with some interesting features, like a artificial mountain inviting to be climbed, some sculptures etc. Having said this, Wattenscheid itself is quite boring. Most if not all pubs seem to close early in the evening. This is partly compensated by the excellent tram link to the city centre of Bochum, although after 8 pm trams runs only every half hour (until midnight).
The hotel itself is comfortable, with an huge choice at the breakfast buffet, and big rooms. I found the staff very helpful and welcoming.
