Great hotel halfway between Dortmund and Bochum
I just needed a place to sleep, so I didn’t check out any of the amenities and can therefore not comment on them. What I can say is that the building is very German: solid built (most places in the US appear like plywood & plaster in comparison), in very good condition, and perfectly clean. No AC but you can open the widows in order let in fresh air (the room consequentially had no odor whatsoever), and the space heater is powerful but makes no noise at all. Unusual for German hotels: there is a fridge in the room, and the parking spots in the gated parking lot are spacious, even for US standards. WiFi is complimentary and worked without any issues the entire time. Very modern & fancy bathroom. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff, available 24/7.

Best alternative if need work in Dortmund
Quiet. Nice. Free Sauna and mini swimming pool. Fast route to Dortmund. It has central aircon but can’t feel any cold air coming out even set to 5C. Better open all windows. A minor problem is the desk too small if you have a big laptop and lots of documents.
