Typical Mercure hotel, clean comfortable rooms. Location is good also as it is very close the the Main Train Station and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Dortmund.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
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.
Unfortunately no hot water.. only a freezing cold shower. Additionally there were problems with the door of the parking garage. For the garage a a seperate amount had to be spend.
Overall a lack of quality for the amount of Euro's spend.
Stayed for two nights. Nice and clean, central location but hard to find. comfortable bed. Reasonable sized room. Didn't have breakfast. Fairly thin walls though. Would use it again. Asked for directions to florian tower and took three hotel staff to locate it on the map- it's not like there are lots of attractions in Dortmund,
If you need to be close to the city centre then the location of this hotel is perfect. The metro station is very close to the hotel. You access the reception using one of two lifts as there is no ground floor.
The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are a good size.
Internet access is available using either an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi. It is unfortunate that the hotel has decided to provide different levels of Internet access with better service being charged for at an extra price.
Overall this is a good place to stay in Dortmund if you need to be centrally located.
