    Too noisy. I was woken up every morning at 4 am by noise from outside. The bed was too soft and not so comfortable.

    Very close to the train station and city center.

    Unfortunately, my room was facing the platforms of the central station hence it was quite loud. Sadly, the offered free WiFi did not work.

    The room was clean and tidy and functional as expected. The breakfast buffet was good although at my first day some of the plates (for cheese, ham, fresh fruit) were empty and refilling took quite a while.

    beeping noise all night long, as though there was an alarm going on in the corridor; noise of drunk people. There were very scruffy people -- clearly not guests --hanging around the breakfast room who were trying to take leftover food. One of the men had urinated over himself. I was amazed the hotel staff did not ask them to leave.

    central location; good value for money; spacious room

    For people who are travelling with the train it is in absolute great location right next to the main railway station. Rooms are clean and well kept. Very helpful reception staff. Good breakfast included.

    Very low selection for breakfast. No scrambled eggs or sausages. Besides hardboiled eggs, there is nothing that is hot from food.

    Just next to the train station so easy to reach and to commute if you need to. Also in the city center so nice restaurants and pubs within walking distance.

    This is my 7th stay at this hotel as come from Australia to visit my sister, who lives in Bochum. It is in a great spot so I can catch the train to somewhere else in Europe afterwards. The staff are always excellent. Stephanie is always so helpful-I had an issue this time. My phone wouldn't work and she allowed me to use their phone to contact my sister. The room was available early for me too which was great after my 25 hour flight.

    The bed is not very comfortable (thin mattress). The coffee in the breakfast was not very good (maybe because the coffee machine was not working and they had to improvise). The room window goes to a square that is under construction.

    The location is perfect for a short stay, as it is right next to the main station and metro, and there are several restaurants around. The breakfast is good, and included in the price. Staff very helpful. Walking distance to the city center and the Bermuda Triangle - a few blocks with several bars with tables on the street.

    The only negative point for me was that my room was super cold at the night that I arrived there, but tomorrow morning I asked the staffs and they kindly provided me a remote heater. So this problem also was solved :)

    The location was great. I was traveling alone and it was a nice place to stay. The location is right beside Bochum's main station and it means that you be available at the train station and go in- or outside the city in 2 minutes by any train that you want to take. I stayed 7 nights in this hotel and it was a really nice experience for me. The room was quiet big and calm. The breakfast was also very fine for me. Lastly, since I was staying there in order to attend a conference, two times I needed to print out my documents and the staffs were really kind to help me in this regard.

    I didn't have the breakfast so didn't give a score. Mattress was a bit too soft -- maybe time to replace.

    Loved the cleanliness of the room -- the bathroom was sparkling and the sheets and towels were new looking and very clean. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The location just next to the main train and urban transport station is perfect. I thought the single occupancy rate of 65€ and 75€ for double occupancy were really good value. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

    Rooms were too small for our family....in retrospect we could have went for two rooms. If we were staying longer than 1 day we definitely would have.

    The buffet breakfast was very good, and was a great start for the day. The rooms were comfortable, no frills, cramped for a family of four--ours are pre-teen. The hotel is directly attached to the HBf, so catching the U-bahn or S-bahn is ultra convenient. Ibis has another location that stands out but is a different hotel, we went there first not realizing this hotel was located attached to the train station. Parking was a bit of a challenge, they don't have a lot for the hotel itself...we got lucky and got the last spot (i believe there's about 20 spaces for the hotel). Otherwise there are plenty of parking garages surrounding the train station. Food choices in the train station and a couple around the corner. Overall a good stay for what we wanted, a place to lay our head, shower, and a kick start to the morning with a good breakfast.

    The area around the front of the hotel is not very welcoming at night and there seems to be quiet a few people hanging around. The bar if it can be called that is very poor, a lot of the items are not available even though there is a decent menu. For instance they didn't even have tonic water and when we asked for a prosecco we were told they didn't have it but recommended a German alternative which was terrible. Even the red wine was awful.
