We were in Dortmund for the Borussia Dortmund match on 25th Jan 13. They won!!
Lovely comfortable hotel on the outskirts of town near to the Airport (15euros in a taxi) Comfortable, clean, spacious rooms and an added bonus of free continental breakfast served from 6.30am. Helpful staff who let us check in at 10.30am because our room was vacant. Our son had a fold out sofa bed which looked really uncomfortable but was in fact very comfortable!
It takes about 10 minutes to get into town on the metro (Statsbahn) - hauptfriedhof station/line U47 is 2 minutes walk from the hotel - Get on on the stadtmitte side and get off at Kamp Strasse for the city centre shops or change at stadtgarden/ getting on to the U45 for Westfahallen and the Stadium (Signal Iduna Park).
When you come back head to Aplerbeck. The underground works on the honour system. You buy a ticket at the machine 2.50e for adults 1.50e for kids for a single journey (however far you travel) or you can get an all day ticket. You need to authorise your ticket at the little machine next to the big ticket machine.
The stadium takes about 25 minutes from the hotel with a change at stadtgarden.
I'd stay here again.
