“Great location but limited facilities”
Reviewed 4 December 2012

This is a stylish, recently build hotel set in beautiful countryside close to Ruhr-University Bochum. It is down a steep hill away from public transport, so you need a car and be wary in wintry weather. No facilities in room for hot or cold drinks - a surprise for English visitors who reagard this as normal in the most modest establishments. There is no restaurant, but a very good one next door. As with many places in Germany you will need cash in the restaurant as they don't take normal credit cards.

Nice located hotel, very good team and the spa area is also nice!
two little negative points: the interieur of the rooms is a little bit old and you can hear everything in this house...
WLAN for free...

overall I enjoyed my 3 nights there...

A little gem in a sea of poor hotels. Very friendly staff, modern rooms sparklingly clean. Gym, swimming pool, fully equiped sauna and unlimited free internet, it's like a home from home.

Was here for business 4 times this month, has been a pleasant experience everytime. Hotel is in a quiet spot, great for relaxing. Good breakfast available every morning.

Only downside was staying there on a Monday, in the evening the restaurant next door is closed and you have to go into Bochum to get dinner.

The hotel is located far outside the city center and almost in the forest. There is a huge parking area a few steps from the entrance. It is usually free although their web site says differently.

The rooms are nicely cut with a large bathroom with a shower. The rooms I've stayed in, all faced the green overgrown area behind the hotel with high trees and bushes. If you leave you window open, you'll hear the birds in the morning. Wonderful.

The hotel has a SMALL wellness area, with a LITTLE swimming pool, sauna and ONE cardio machine. You should consider to take a run outside instead, so don't forget your sneakers.

The breakfast buffet provides a wide range of meats, cheeses, scramled and boiled eggs, bacon, cereals, jams etc.

Staff is very freindly.

The smart decor and furnishings in the rooms makes the most of the limited space. The beds and bathroom are more than adequate. The walls are a bit thin, I could hear adjacent rooms showering and flushing. An early morning is guaranteed thanks to the crowing cockerels next door.

All staff working here, from the check-in desk, to the breakfast room and the bar in the evening were uniformly helpful and pleasant.

Breakfast, though unremarkable, presented a good range of cereals, muesli, pastries, fruit salad, coffee and teas. The boiled eggs were just a little overdone. Needless to say, I did not allow this small detail interrupt my otherwise very pleasurable stay here.

The restaurant nearby (if you need a place to eat) down the road (I fail to recall it's name) appears to be the local posh dining joint. Service was excellent. Some dishes suffered from the inexplicable "German curry" syndrome, whilst others were simple pasta dishes dressed up as fancy cuisine. How do you do that? Just put half as much on the plate and garnish it decoratively. I was more than pleased with my mozzarella salad and wheat beer. They even served prosecco in a proper glass. Ah, the poor man's Champagne, always a winner on a wedding anniversary date. Festive yet frugal.

Comfortable, very clean, friendly personnel. Quiet in a country place. A few cons: tiny TV and quite cold room decoration.
