The hotel is in a very good location for exploring Dortmund and the surrounding area, as it is is central and close to the station. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and was a very relaxing atmosphere.
The décor of the hotel keeps with the Grey theme and is very tastefully done. The room was nicely decorated and spacious and the bed was very comfortable.
An excellent place for a break in Dortmund.
Thank you.

This hotel was a great find in Dortmund. Booked a family room and a double room. Family room was extremely spacious with separate area for the single bed. Double bedroom had a balcony and a beautiful walk in shower. Breakfast was included, great choices of yogurts, cereals, pastries and other items. Staff were very helpful and really friendly. Can not fault this hotel

Very central to everything we needed. We took the breakfast option - variety of bread, hams. cheese and sausage. Scrambled and boiled eggs, fresh fruit, jams, yoghurt and cereals, juices and excellent coffee and other hot drinks. Glad we chose this option as there did not seem too many cafes offering breakfast nearby - only chains. The ladies who dealt with breakfast were lovely, really helpful and friendly. The only reason I've not given a 5 rating is that (for us) the bed was a little firm and the pillows were far too soft and on our last night (Saturday) the hotel must be near a nightclub as all we could hear was thumping music into the early hours (2am!) of the morning. Would just advise getting a room on the opposite side of the hotel.

Found this hotel when traveling from Czech to UK as a stop over. Hotel is in a great location near the square, great for a walk around to soak up atmosphere. The hotel itself is modern, clean and spacious. There is a free secured carpark with reserved spaces. The breakfast which is included is also very good with a great selection of hot and cold food. Finally the staff where all extremely friendly, polite and helpful. I would definitely use this hotel again

The hotel is conveniently located for the Hauptbahnhof and the city centre. My room was comfortable and well equipped with everything I needed for my stay. There was an excellent selection for breakfast. All of the staff I met were very helpful. The only negative thing was music noise from an adjacent venue on the Friday night.

Stayed here for four nights and it did the job. check in was simple and straightforward. The room was ideal for one. The shower was powerful and warm. The pillow could have done with being a bit harder. Breakfast was plentiful and the ladies in the breakfast room were lovely. Some minor issues- some noise outside the room, I was disturbed on the first day by four different members of staff coming into the room even after the room had been cleaned, they didn't stock up any used soaps/coffee etc. All in all a pleasant stay and would recommend for it's location too.

A nice hotel, on walking distance of the city center, for a good price.
Clean and comfortable room, good noise isolation from the neighbours.Good breakfast.
Only missing: a bar, although it is possible to obtain drinks at the reception.

while at the hotel the shower head broke clean off. I was informed we would be charged for this, I refused as I did not break it, it was broken when we arrived.
Today I discovered the hotel had charged me £37 taken out of my account, without my consent or knowledge. I emailed and was told this was for me breaking the shower head and the insurance does not cover it! I can not believe this, I would not recommend that you stay at this hotel if this is the way the treat their customers, I have never experienced anything like this before!

The Grey is a nondescript hotel a backstreet near Dortmund main station. It's a post-war 1960's building that partially overlooks a parking lot.

The staff is very friendly and courteous. But overall this hotel appears more tired than fresh. Leading up to the rooms, the stairs are stained. The rooms themselves have tiled floors and very simple very furniture that is chipped and shows its age. On hot days you'll notice that there is no AC. Beds are either very soft or worn through. And single rooms can be tiny in size. The bathroom, however, appeared new, was large, and very clean.

The positive reviews on this site are a mystery to me.

While Dortmund may not be famous for its nice hotels, one can surely find a better option than this one. Especially since this hotel is not cheap.

Dear Elber2, thank you for taking time to write your point of view and the compliment addressed to our team. It is a pity that you did not like the design and our rooms with our individual furniture. We also deeply regret that you did not like our central location in the heart of Dortmund. Our staircase is made of terrazzo panels, normally they have grains, there are no stains. Our house has no air conditioning, but we offers our guests on very warm days for cooling fans. Our beds have been made especially for us, in a special way, which adapts to each body individually, so our mattresses can not worn through. We sincerely hope that our guests will not take your rating too seriously and believe in our consistently positive feedback. We wish you all the best, The Grey Design Hotel
