light in the room was broken
High quality for a very cheap price, nice surroundings Remote control didn´t working, neither the tv without remote...not possible to see tv
Located in a little woods, which is very nice to walk with my dog in the morning.
this is a gem of a hotel just 1mile off the autobahn set in a large park no
Friendly staff Poor restaurant, two hours waiting unacceptable and wrong orders delivered.
Very nice staff. The hotel has recently changed from one brand to another. No elevator to the upper floor in the wing.
The duvets are mighty comnfortable. Good location too. I booked the room in april at 57 euros per night but when I checked out I was charged 87 euros per night, which was the the rate on the day I checked in. Luckily, I had my confirmation email printed out and we could resolve this.
Very clean and comfortable. Excellent beds! A bit far from city centre, but easily accessible if you travel by car.
For the low price a very good room No elevator
Very clean, service was absolutely fantastic. Helpful staff. Breakfast was amazing, delivered promptly, hot and a mountain of food was offered. Would return any time. The inclusion of a ramp at one entrance, and a restaurant with access would be fantastic, would complement the establishement perfectly. We ate out due to the location of the restaurant.
The true kindness of the staff. They even helped me getting out of the parking lot where I ws blocked with rear-wheel traction in combination with snow - I was on time for my appointment! Many thanks and bravo!
Friendly staff, new facilities, convenient location. Beds could be more comfortable. Room temperature or air quality did not appear ideal.
very clean, very nice spacy and comfy rooms, quite new hotel, very good breakfast nice stay allround some rooms are to the street which is quite busy, internet wifi was not working in the room, only on the corridor
very confortable hotel, elegant, high level and good price !!
Everything was fine,except there was no restaurant on the sunday evening.
Very good business hotel with great restaurant.
friendlyness of the staff and the quallity of the rooms nothing
Room was vey clean well equipped. Food was good. No English menu and the service was slow. Beer was also warm.
friendly staff and comfortable rooms
Cosy, nice, clean, friendly.
Rooms are great, super shower and beds, very clean and new stuff. Internet is very fast, rooms are quiet. Staff is very friendly and professional. The pools and sauna's are super, the retaurant is very good, try the starter: salad with duck breast, Fabulous!! The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was that I had to leave it, but I will be back soon.
large room, leisure facilities slow internet, seldom staff at reception desk
Very new hotel with all expected facilities, friendly staff
Hotel was modern with a nice blend of antique Indian furniture. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and accomodating.
Newly built hotel, therefore modern rooms with few flaws. Nice shower. Breakfast was not fantastic
good room good service
convienent and accesable from the main station, reasonable facilities
The hotel enjoys an ideal location between the shopping streets in the centre of Dortmund and the railway station. It is large, contemporary-style yet fairly impersonal, with a touch of luxury that would not seem out of place in the centre of London or Paris (but which might be a bit too flashy in a provincial, industrial town). The double rooms are also large, well-appointed, sound-proofed and very clean. The bathroom is also quite large, as it has not one but two sinks and a bathtub+shower. The Bulgari toiletries are really appreciated and show once more the hotel owners' attention to the little details that matter. The breakfast is very good, varied and plentiful (but a bit expensive, at 18 euros per person).
Beautiful lobby, good location to go to dortmund center, nice breakfast... no airco, and unfortunately the day we arrived it was almost 30C.
Breakfast buffet is very good and the staff is friendly and helpfull. Good location and the connected restaurant is very good. For my purposes I selected too small room. However I'd like to stay in this hotel again and have already reserved a bigger one.
It's ideal location for shopping , business and tour.The level of service is very good.The hotel is clean and comfortable.I really liked it. It was very good.If some not , just ask reception and they solve it soon.
The way staff resolved problems- see below The reasons for the poor ratings relate to the lack of air conditioning. During my stay tempratures in dortmund were 30 degrees, plus. I was unable to get an sleep the first night, due to the heat in room and lack of air. For a supposingly 4 * hotel this is unacceptable. Saying that when I complained the next day, the hotel staff placed a fan in my room that resolved the problem (hence excellence ratings for staff). There were also problems obtaining wireless connections in my hotel room- although, again this was addressed satisafctorily by hotle staff- I was provided with a cable connection.
your location and the bar 1. no air conditioner, 2. stale air, 3. aclcohol was refused for visitors/clients, 4. too small parking lots, 5. no printers in business centre,
Friendly reception staff and helpful with information that was asked off them. The hotel has free internet access
good location in the centre. very comfortable, nice rooms, friendly staff ... perfect
The spacious room
hotel, comfort. it was my second time over there and its a pleasure to go there.Suites are very pleasant. i didnt like the fact that the staff made a mistake giving two rooms for me and my fiancee ( we just ordered one) and they did not even apologized for it...in fact they even tried to trick us to pay both rooms.i did not like this inconvenience at all.So when the staff is wrong, its ok everybody makes mistakes, including me, but we should all apologize to each others if so especially them because they are supposed to work for our comfort, not to be right by pride or to trick us...
Spacious and comfortable room.
the staff who were always helpful and willing with a smile.
I found this hotel to be an overall pleasurable experience, with excellent facilities and staff that were warm and welcoming. Te suit was outstanding and the spa a real treat. I thought the location was perfect, close to all amenities and easy to find after a beer! I would definately stay there again.
Bedroom Suite was as described on the website, very spacious and very comfortable. Location is ideal as it is just 300 metres from the main train station and 5 minutes from the centre of the city. The perfect location for business or pleasure. No complaints. It ticked all the boxes for my trip.
the room was very large and comfortable The cafe bar was a separate business and did not open until 5.00 pm
Friendly staff. Clean hotel. Value for money. Hotel bar opening times. Should be open earlier.
the room the food
Kind service by hotel front desk staff was impressed. Only one thing is the quality of meal served during the dinner but breakfast was quite OK.
I like that the hotel is really close to the highway. The floor carpet in the breakfast room is the horror sooooo dirty!
Defintelty stay here again
Easy to access, friendly staff
easy to reach
The friendliness of staff good service Close to town centre.Next door to Starlight Express.
The reception staff were very helpful and efficient when booking in and checking out and everything was as it should've been. Nothing - everything was lovely.
beds were perfect-good quality, duvets instead of sheets with blankets, bathroom was very nice,like new although not new, breakfast was great value-excellent quality and enough choice no fridge in the room
New, clean hotel. Next to Starlight Express Show. Breakfast expensive.
Clean and quiet, good breakfast, parking on site What is it with these European showers? Is there a design requirement for half the water to go on the floor?
A great hotel very close to the congress center, central park and a 15 minute walk from city center. Free parking and great breakfast (not included). Corridor noises could be heard in the room, the Wi-Fi was expensive (didn't use it), the double room had 2 separate beds.
I thought the staff at reception were superb – kind, polite and extremely helpful.
Very comfortable rooms and very good position in the city.
the location is exellent , its near the main train station and the shopping area . i didnt like the services it was poor and they dont have dry cleen in the hotel they take it out side and it takes more then a day to come back , and you should ask them for your dry cleen to bring them back to the room they dont bring it back
Modern, clean and comfortable hotel. Excellent breakfast. Nice staff. Garage access is tight and a little spooky especially for women.
Breakfast Reception service, minigym has two machines :). Towels
Very helpful staff. At breakfast the service is outstanding, especially from the longest serving ladies.After our 6th stay we're treated like 'family'. In the beginning every guest was entitled to a travel card for the entire Ruhr transport network as fare as Duesseldorf Airport.It is a bit sad that this has been stopped.
Location is excellent, bang opposite the main central railway station NA
Extremely helpful and friendly staff, comfortable beds, excellent breakfast We found the heating in the rooms too high and also would have liked some drawers or shelves for clothes and belongings
The room I had was quiet and comfortable. It had tea/coffee facilities and fridge so I could keep some of my own food in it. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The location is good as it was across the road from the station. I did not have a chance to eat at the hotel so cannot comment on the food quality but the breakfast buffet looked good and the dinner menu had some good choices.
the general standard of furnishings The double bed turned out to be two singles pushed together. The TV was a little confusing to operate.
very spacious room, very clean
Very quiet and comfortable hotel with decent sized rooms and very professional personal. Very nice breakfast.
I love the bath tub and the beds are the best I´ve found. My back hurts a lot but I had no pain in the morning, which is a miracle. We slept to well and missed breakfast the two mornings we stayed at Mercure Hotel. We also missed the train to the airport because of this :)
Breakfast was excellent, my room was very spacious, with a superb bathroom. The layout of the bedroom was also good, and I loved the Reception area with its Christmas tree and festive atmosphere. The glass elevators are also very attractive. Room 308 did not have any drawer space to put clothes in, only hanging spare in the wardrobe
It was close to the Westfalenhallen The underground parking was very narrow and expensive.
friendly staff, good location, faultless service.
easy to reach Iduna park stadium, 10min walk. we luckily met Shinji Kagawa at the reception in the hotel just after the match with Volksburg.Hotel stuff recommended us a nice Mongolian food restrant near the hotel. Baby bed. Nothing.
some of the staff were very nice and helpful; The gym is a joke, dont even think about bringing your gym-stuff; During my stay it was very hot in Dortmund and there is only this mini terrace out front the hotel in the bare heat, no umbrellas; I found the bed too short (they should check out Hilton or Marriott for their beds!); the TV too small and old; this hotel needs to loose a star and be downgraded;
The hotel was situated ideally for my stay i attended a racing pigeon convention and the hotel was not more that 10mins walk to the arena that it was staged so no transport costs. Also the staff and room service was excellent during my stay.
The usual Hilton high standards with excellent staff, all of whom spoke perfect English. Great location overall. Although slightly remote from Dortmund centre, was easily accessible by underground, that was only 5 minutes walk away.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, clean and modern. The location was very convenient. The in-tub shower was awkward due to limited size of glass partition.
Nice sorrounding, excelent staff, perfect breakfast Size of the rooms
Cleanliness, modern, comfortable. Very friendly staff. Good location to the westfalhallen. Tea/coffee facilities. Room service was quick and lovely well presented. I would recommend this to anyone.
The quality of the room, amenities and breakfast is excellent The personel in general was very gentle. But at check-out we were asked to pay theparking (even our rate included it) and the person at the front desk was not nice at all: we showed our reservation (which was in french) and she argued that she could not understand french so we would have to pay the parking. At the end she agreed not to charge us but she was not happy about it, and not nice at all. Such a hotel should always have helpful staff that fullfill its customers inquiries and needs in kind way.
Just a brief overnight stop but food and service excellent
Friendly staff. Superb swimming pool/spa. Excellent breakfast. Internet access too expensive.
Large swimming pool. Great breakfast. Far from the city center.
Location. It is perfect if you wish to go to the Idulna Park Stadion and well connected to the city centre. Breakfast was good too. Common areas are not too welcoming
Staff was very courteous. The room was very spacious with a large window and nice view.
The hotel has its own parking celler, available for €7 pr. night, which is great if you haven't got the required Umwelt mark for your car yet. The staff spoke excellent english, and where very friendly and professional. Also, facilities were superior to many other hotels in the same class, so there are lots of reasons to visit this hotel.
I liked the location and the rooms were nice and clean . I liked also the kitchenet in the rooms .
Good facilities, clean and helpful staff. Please note room cooking facilities were of no interest hence value for money rating, if I'd wanted such facilities then I'd rate higher: excellent. Restaurant menu for dinner given standard of hotel and prices was a bit uninspiring. Pity can't include Breakfast in room rates, appreciate given catering facilities in rooms this may complicate the companies business model. NO Kettle in room! Some organized bicycle parking in underground car park would have been good althoguh I was able to use car park, getting bike out was a fag as I had to carry it up stairs, gates only operate for large metal items (cars), but again staff were helpful in this aspect..
The hotel was very clean, staff were extremely helpful and their command of English excellent. Very conveniently situated and would definately visit again. Minor point - as non-smokers, it was not very pleasent having to walk along the ground floor corridor amid the smell of stale smoke.
every thing what a guest expect no
The staff are very helpful on the front desk I booked a room on this site for double room single person and got a room with 2 single beds join together and the blacket was very small and a single got less then 5 hours sleep
The hotel was well situated for attending a concert/show. Staff at the hotel not very accommodating, in particular the manager. Internet access available but unreasonably expensive. Parking is expensive given the location, and on-street parking is not always available. Facilities are very dated. Some of the rooms on the first floor are not accessible by lift; stairs only.
Breakfast was excellent. Lots of choice. The outside appearance wasn't so appealing. The initial impression of the hotel was not so good. However once inside the hotel was found to be quite comfortable.
the comfortof the room,near the congresscenter
Comfortable - Good breakfast Arrived around 11pm, and found there was no hot food available
Park near the hotel
Privacy and location.
The bottle of champagne as a honeymoon gift was lovely.
The air conditioning wasnt woking in the hotel over the weekend.
Very helpful & pleasant staff
Calm Funny having an empty minibar / ridiculous
A lovely hotel, beautiful setting, near the city centre
The building was pretty the food was good the staff very helpful The bed was very hard
Cheap, Cheap, Cheap................................... Needs to be cleaned!!! Dusts are all over right at the moment of entry... There was no bath tub...just small shower booth.
The twin bedrooms are very comfortable and relaxing
The cleaning staff opened my door twice early on a Sunday morning ...
I was there for 2 nights. I don't travel to Europe very much at all so don't have a ton of comparisons. Overall felt like an American hotel except gym was very very limited. Nice staff that spoke English fluently.
The room was good. But I expected it much bigger for 5 star hotel. The room had no bath, just a shower.
Nice and clean room, got nice deal via Bookings.com, good value for the Sunday brunch at 17 Euro. ... guys you said four questions ! bye now
Modern furniture Very clean bathroom
Bathroom could have been cleaner, toothpaste on mirror frame from earlier costumer.
The best thing about the hotel was the friendliness and helpfulness of your staff.
the location, since we spent time in the arena
The staff were very accommodating in allowing me to stay at the hotel until 4pm when I did not arrive there until 3am! Many hotels would have thrown me out at midday or charged me another day rate Best Western Parkhotel Westfalenhallen is a 4 star hotel, but also has a wing where the rooms are certainly not 4 star!
The room was spacious. Separate toilet and bathroom was also nice. The complimentray mini - bar of 2 beers, 2 waters and 2 juices is a very nice idea. Had food at night. Soup was cold and tasteless. Service was rushed and it felt as if I was intruding even though it was only about 21.00
nearest hotel to the soccer stadium. more than enough room space. restaurant service was slow during the lunch time which made some of the customers unhappy including myself.
Lovely room and view, pretty gardens, friendly staff, close enough to underground, near to stadium & running track
The hotel is ideally situated for events at the Westfalenhallen just 5 minutes from Hall 1. It is also 5 minutes from the Stadtbahn and bus stops for easy and cheap links to the city centre and minutes from the football stadium. I booked a standard room at a bargain rate which turned out to be a "traditional room" in the old, unrenovated wing. I worried about this but the room was fine if a little basic - more than adequate for my overnight stay. The included breakfast buffet was excellent and free mini bar (soft drinks & beer) & internet were also included in the rate. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a visit to the Westfalenhallen area. The soundproofing in the "old" wing is not particularly good and the wireless internet connection is a bit iffy (I sat in reception to get a better signal).
Everything was OK! Nice hotel - worth the money!
Its location for the football. only a couple of minutes walk from room to stadium.
The proximity of the hotel to the Westfalenhallen ice rink. The single rooms were very small, and a bit like a cell!
We had a very pleasent stay in the Parkhotel. Staff was very friendly. We booked a traditional room, which was much cheaper than the other rooms. These rooms are not renovated, but very acceptable. The rooms are not big. Breakfast was really nice! The sauna is very nice and neat. We asked for a non-smokingroom, but didn't receive this. I must add that all rooms were booked.
Great location for the football
Nice clean room, great dining room, good food, reasonable rate, and wonderful staffs.
very helpful staff who want to help. the food is excellent and very well prepared and presented.
The very quick check in and check out. The very good breakfast buffet. The food is very good too and quick served as well. While I´m writing this review I´m already in the hotel again. no
the food and the room the staf did not speak anithing but German, The room a litle bit noisy
i loved the food in the restoraunt... especialy the meat recepies... it is far from the city of bochum , and the bus transportation from bochum to the hotel is 1 hour.
enviroment they gave me the wrong bill and acted as it was my foult
We were looked after very well at the hotel and found the reception very helpfull especially in terms the checking for flights and travel arrangenents in the circumstances that we found on this break. We hope to return again for the model exibution in 2011 and with reasonable rates will probable increase our duration to the full 5 nights many thanks for a good time
Helpful 24 hours reception, good English speaking staff, programmable TV wakeup alarm. Very expensive wireless Internet, in this day and age that should be available for free in every hotel room, very few foreign language channels on TV.
The room. My girlfriend and I (both young professionals) stayed here while attending Love Parade 2008 and were way overcharged for the room by a condescending staff. Nice room, but the front desk needs to be fired and restaffed.
Very friendly staff, walking distance to the centre, beautiful interior that differs from mainstream hotels, good selection at breakfast Few programs in English on TV
On site underground parking,easy to find from Autobahn, bar snacks and food reasonable price. no
Great place to stay if you are going to Westfalenhalle. Just a couple of minutes to walk from the hotel.
Close proximity to town centre and Christmas market Nothing!
No hotel car park location was good, as were the facilities
Good weather good staff very helpfull nothing to much trouble No
Its central location was useful, just minutes' walk from the pool we were visiting every day. Evening menu was not exciting and was over-priced.
Closeness to the Metro and city center. Good variety of TV programs. Room is a bit small for the 4 star hotel but confortable enough.
The receptionist was very helpful in assisting when we by mistake locked our car away in the nearby deep garage. Hint: always check garage accessibility when driving into a garage. The hotel seemed best suited for a business trip. Standard rather boring big city business hotel. Lacked personality. Our room didn't have a view.
central location, best breakfast I ever had at a hotel, wintergarten for breakfast room very nice.
We did not book breakfast and found it quite expensive on a one off basis
A very pleasant experience. Most efficient room service. There was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. As frequent travellers this is something we appreciate.
My brother and I were caught up in the closed airport situation because of the Volcano, we were very lucky and came home with an English couple who drove to Germany rather than flew , if we had to stay on at the Hotel Drees we could stay free of charge for as long as it took for our flight to become available
Central and very good wifi connection. Staff are very helpful and the rooms are quite clean There are mostly German channels on TV. If they want to be an international guest welcoming hotel, they have to add more channels in English.
Handy for the city and event The room was not propally cleaned or beds made evey day
the food was amazing and service of the staff was good.the room and the bathroon were of good size and spacious. the toilet roll in the bathroom was too hard.
Breakfast was very good.
