“Restaurant really let this place down”
Reviewed 4 December 2012

The hotel itself is certainly nothing special but it is certainly comfortable and clean, and to be honest these are 2 of the main things we wanted from our hotels. We only stayed here overnight so did not need anything special from the hotel.

The restaurant however let the hotel down in 2 ways. The first was that it was shut in the evening which we were not informed of prior to arrival. We had just finished a 4 hour drive so wanted to sit down for a meal, relax a bit and go to bed... This wasn't going to happen as we had to walk 15 minutes in the cold to try and find the restaurant the receptionist recommended. Luckily the restaurant was VERY good, but it would have been nice to have been able to eat at the hotel.

The second let down was the following morning when we had a pretty expensive breakfast. We paid 13 euros each, which I think was one of the most expensive breakfasts during a 2 week trip. To be honest for what you pay I can't say that there was anything particularly special about it.

To be fair to the receptionist, she did a very good job and it seemed like she was pretty much running the whole hotel that evening.... Luckily it wasn't too busy. I didn't see any other staff until the following morning when we saw a cleaner and a new receptionist & waiter... Although the receptionist who saw us in at 6pm the previous evening and was there around 9:00pm after coming back from the restaurant was still there / there again at 8:00am the next morning.

Room Tip: Even if you smoke, don't have a smoking room... make the 1 minute journey to outside the entran...

Positives include being close to the University, where I had a couple of meetings, and I had a view of Westfalenstadion from my room. However, the hotel is a few miles from the city and the rooms are rather depressing and spartan. This hotel has clearly been built to a price point and ease of maintenance. Staff were OK, one receptionist very helpful - the others I interacted with unenthused, clearly just doing a job and nothing more. The bed was not comfortable for me, felt like a very cheap mattress. There is no free internet access, €1 or €2 for access to lobby PCs and printer. Wifi was ~€5 for one hour, it dropped out several times when I was connected. Breakfast was OK. Buffet included a reasonable range of cold food, one hot choice of bacon, eggs and sausage. Personally I will look elsewhere next time.

Room Tip: Football fans ask for a room with a view of Westfalenstadion.

Hotel is situated literally in the fields, not that far from the famous stadium though.

It’s quite expensive for 3 stars, I wish I could find something more affordable right in Dortmund in 4 star and 5 star hotels as my friends did. There is no free wi-fi, only 3 ways are possible – 1 hour - 5 euro, 10 hours – 20 euro, 30 days – 32 euro. If you buy 1 hour - it's valid for one login only. Breakfast, if not included costs 13.5 euro. Rooms are ok, clean, hairdryer , shampoo only.

To get train from the station “Dortmund Universitat” you have to walk about 15 min. One-way ticket costs 2.4 euro, all day ticket 5,4 euro. If you want to buy sim-card you can do it on Dortmund Hauptbahnhof, it’s 3 stations from “Dortmund Universitat”, you need to take way 2, where is written “Dortmund”.

There are no restaurants nearby, except student cafes. You can have a lunch there, it will cost you max.5 euro. It’s situated right next to the station, you will have to go along library through the bridge and you will see big yellow building.

Everything in this area is closed in the evening on Saturday and all day on Sunday.

If you plan your trip as a student of the University it’s better to stay in city center and after take a taxi, what will cost you max.15 euro.

The room was nice and clean, no bathtub though, english speaking staff was very helpful. Breakfast was fine. Too bad there is no free wifi, I expect that in a business hotel. The location is a bit of a problem but taxi services are cheap in Germany.

The room was very nice, the restaurant/bar nice as well, and the staff helpful. But the internet was unacceptably slow for a business hotel. There is only a shower, no bath tub, for those who like a bath.

I stayed two nights in this hotel, in a "business room" that are supposed to be better than ordinary rooms. The location of the hotel is in the middle of nowhere, you need a car to get anywhere. They charge 5 EUR per hour per device for the internet. So if you want to get online with both your computer and phone, it will cost you 10 EUR per hour! The rooms have no air-conditioning and if you open the window you can not sleep due to the noise. The walls between the rooms are thin and has no sound isolation. I wanted to check out after my first night to get a proper hotel instead, but then I was told that I had to pay for two nights anyway. Scandalous. Recommendation: Take your business elsewhere.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

Nice location, quiet enough but out of town, so car is recommended.
Nearest train station 10 mins walk away.
Rooms and bathrooms minimalist decor but large enough and comfortable.
Breakfast buffet is very good.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Hotel guests mainly seminar attendees or university visitors.
Value for money? For me, yes, can't judge for others because special pricing arrangement for my stay.
