The outside looks a bit shabby and the old fotos underline this, but the interior is nice, new clean and friendly. Centrally located with friendly stuff and good breakfast. I'll come again, if I have to go back to Dortmund :-)

I stayed in one of the apartments for 3 weeks. The apartment itself is pretty old fashioned but it's clean, quiet, and comfortable. There is a grocery store right across the street and it's a 5 min walk to the train station. It is a good choice for a few week stay.

This place was built around 1960 if the plaque in the 2 (!!) persons elevator is correct. Unfortunately a lot of details in the hotel rooms are also still from 1960's (extremely small, furniture, décor, single bed with wave shaped mattress, lack of A/C). A move next day to the newer part of the hotel was a very wise decision...

Centrally located 4* Hotel, reasonably priced bar , breakfast 15 euros but plenty of choice and able to revisit as often as required. Didn't eat in the evenings here as plenty of choice within a short distance from the hotel
