i have stayed here a couple of times whilst on business in Dortmund. The hotel is right next to the Kampstrasse u-bahn, and very handy for the city centre.
However, to get to it you get in a choice of two small, very slow, lifts at the entrance to a shopping centre. Check-in is fine and the reception staff always friendly and polite, but if you feel like a beer before heading out the bar area is soulless, and is really a collection of chairs next to reception.
The breakfast was perfeclty acceptable, with the usual array of cold meats, cheeses, fruit etc, plus a small hot selection of the typical sausage, (solid) scambled egg, etc.
However, the bedrooms - i have stayed in two rooms, on different floors so i am sure it is not a coincidence. The thermostat seems to be purely for decoration, and the room temperature is about 23-24 degrees. This is too hot for comfort for me. The only option is to open the window, which means the room is noisy as both times i have been facing the main street.
The bedrooms themselves are functional - clean and modern, although not particularly big However, as i am only usually in it for about 7 hours i don't really mind.
In summary, if you want a hotel right in the city centre, and like to be really warm at night, this is the place for you.
