Holiday Inn Express Dortmund

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice clean rooms, huge parking. Slightly off City Center but convenient if one does business in this area. Very efficient check-in and check-out, friendly staff. One would expect a more generous breackfast . The eggs only hardboiled that were kept warm. When I asked for a fried eggs I was told that the hotel does not hae kitchen. Strange. Een ery small 1-2 stars Hotels can offer an egg variety

Little away from the city. Nice rooms, neat and clean. Good breakfast, nice bed. The hotel is very quiet. There are Italian restaurant just across the road which serves excellent food. The area is quite good and is well connected

Stayed there during Dortmund vs Atalanta match. Upon checked-in, the reception girl; named Kathryn is really friendly and helpful eventhough she told me that she was just new at the hotel. Got the welcome drinks and snacks vouchers as IHG Platinum member. The room is not that big comparing to other HIX; but the bed was comfortable. The location of the hotel is conveniently located near to the train station of U47. I emailed in advance asking if I could take away the breakfast since our train would departs on 6:30 am on the morning. The hotel said yes and told me to simply inform the reception regarding about that. Based on the information; therefore I choose the hotel. Unfortunately, it seems that I asked the wrong guy. I informed him that I would like to take away our breakfast in the morning; he simply said cannot. I told him that I've already emailed in advance; and he just said (without checking any emails) he didn't get any information regarding this. He said that I could take away that egg if I wanted (he was carrying a hard boiled egg during my conversation). Really unfunny joke, not interested in customer needs and I found it very unpolite to make such a joke to the guests. Been IHG Platinum members for 5 years and also 6 years Platinum on the other chain;I've never met such an uninterested IHG employee like him. Fortunately, I met Kathryn and informed her regarding that I need the breakfast to be take away; she told me to wait since she would inform her colleague who works on the next shift. After couple minutes later; she told me that my friends and I could have breakfast earlier. Very good service. During the check-out, the reception guy was very helpful and accommodating which I could expect from IHG. The breakfast was very good. I also like the juice, coffee, and other drink machines. Sorry if I have to rate 3 stars; it would be 1 star if I only met the hard-boiled egg guy; thanks to Kathryn and the early morning guy on the reception who've done much better than the an uninterested hard-boiled egg guy.

This was our second stay at this property. Nothing was too much trouble. Nice and comfortable room, although it could be a bit bigger for family of four...if you stay more than one night. For us it was just what we need. Just an observation but it will add more to the value if parking was included in the price, as during our stay it looks rather empty. Nevertheless, rooms are clean, quiet, and with good wi-fi. Continental breakfast but with good selection. If we will travel through Dortmund again, most likely we will choose this hotel for our overnight stay.

Drove to Dortmund from Manchester in one day...Arriving after midnight to excellent reception and v modern immaculate sparkled clean... Breakfast was fine despite no eggs left..Continental breakfast is continental...only thing we beat the Germans at now! park charge of 8e per day a surprise but worth it to leave behind and catch local U train into clean Dortmund centre...impressive Christmas Markets and THE biggest Xmas Tree Big bonus was to walk into TA’s top restaurant without a booking..superb service,food and ambiance.. Yep,the Germans have such high standards which we can only dream about...Brits lacks real pride!

Not so Low cost Low service level Rooms are clean and enough spacious for that category Breakfast is ok but not good The hotel doesn't have a restaurant, there is an Italian one just beside, which is nice Value for money is just at the edge of good

The location is great when flying early from Dortmund, Very big room, comfy bed, nice chair in the room. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Clean and good breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful Minus point: No shutle bus.

Since I came for the firts time in June 2015, it's been my hotel five mire times. Due to business I come to Dortmund once or twice a year and this hotel is the perfect one for me. Close to my business location and well communicated with the town center with the metro. Staff is really kind and rooms are comfortable enough. Breakfast is a good starting for everyday and cleaning service works fine. I'm back this August there.

This location was between two cities I was driving to, so I figure how bad can a Holiday Inn Express be. The location is close to the autobahn so has easy access, The hotel is 4 floor and has no restaurant, but there is an Italian restaurant within walking distance. Breakfast was descent OK selection and plenty of seating. The room is a typical Holiday Inn Express room, nicely appointed, comfortable, wifi is good, one thing that I did not like was the air-conditioning never really got cold as I set it, not uncomfortable but not the way I like it. Staff was OK, nothing out of this world, polite but not engaged. I would recommend it if you need a place to spend the night on the way somewhere. It is close to the city but a bit of a drive, nothing else in the surrounding for you to do.

Nice, modern Holiday Inn with small but clean and well equipped rooms. Not much in the way of facilities (e.g. no restaurant), but there is an Italian restaurant nearby and the U-Bahn station to the city centre is 5 minutes walk, Just off the main road going through the city. Would definitely recommend for a stop-over. P.S The title picture used in the listing on Tripadvisor is NOT the hotel, but (I assume) a nearby landmark.
