I regularly stay at this hotel on business and in fact it is my first choice even though it not the most convenient for the office location I need to visit in Bochum
Well presented reception and large clean rooms where everything is working. Admittedly i've been there so many times I don't have to re-learn how things work like the TV so I may be biassed.
Large comfortable beds (6 pillows!) and well lit rooms (~6 lights!) and a UK power socket is useful if you forgot your adaptor. Views from the rooms are unremarkable, some are towards the centre of Bochum and some towards the football stadium which is next door.
There are other useful extras like a safe and an iron if your clothes are rather crumpled. The bathrooms are well designed and in my experience always very clean.
Evening meals are available in the restaurant. The restaurant is rather unadventurous in design and normally when staying i would eat outside 50% of the time but the food is OK. Breakfast food choice in the morning is very good although I cannot comment on its quality because i stick to my standard breakfast choice. There is a open bar area adjoining the restaurant which is fairly small but adequate.
Exercise area is very small. I checked it out once and decided not to bother in future. I now go for a run in the nearby streets instead.
The Hotel is not in the very center of town so requires a taxi or approx 20 minutes walk to reach the center. There can be a short wait in reception in busy times when checking out.
I would definitely recommend the hotel for business visits or if you are visiting the city and don't mind taxi rides to get into the centre.
