Nice hotel with way too much noise
The good... the hotel and my room were very clean, the shower hot, the breakfast was good, and the wifi worked most of the time. The bad... the A/C didn't work. This was likely because it appeared to be a seasonal AC / Aircon system, and it just happened to be very warm in early Spring, so it wasn't switched over yet I'm guessing. This would be fine if you could open your window, but... The ugly... The hotel isn't just near train tracks, it's literally directly against the train platform. That means that every announcement for every train, all night long, is blasted into your room. The windows muffle it somewhat when closed, but not very well. Besides the announcements and of course the trains stopping, there was also a great deal of industrial noise from what sounded like washing machines going, and also you can hear every word spoken by every person above, and to each side of you. There is no sound insulation at all. I've lived and stayed all over the world, this was the most noise I've ever dealt with for a place that I paid for. I used ear plugs and noise canceling headphones to just get a little bit of sleep. The staff seemed nice, the price is right, and it's convenient... but I didn't sleep. So I'd never stay here again.

Very Good8.0
The room was nice and updated. The building overall was older, but still clean and reasonable condition. The service at the desk was up and down. One woman, who seemed to be a manager, was very accommodating and helpful. The morning guy was less so (maybe he was tired, it was early!). The breakfast was very basic. It was fine, but not as great as they claimed. We were concerned there would be noise from the train, which was literally outside our window, but the windows must be good, as it was not a problem. I would recommend this hotel and I would also stay here again.

Good stay
Hotel staff friendly. Continental breakfast nice for what you pay. Room was of good size and clean. Great location for transport links being right next to the train and bus station with lots of taxis outside.

Great location
We chose this hotel as we had booked to see Starlight Express and were arriving in Bochum by train. The location was perfect (right next to the train station) and it was just a short cab ride (8 euros) to the Starlighthalle. The hotel was clean and spacious, the breakfast was delicious and regularly topped up, and the staff pleasant and welcoming. Easy to walk into Bochum centre for shopping. Although it is next to the train station, you can't hear the trains as the rooms overlook the other side. I would recommend this hotel particularly if visiting Starlight Express. (Which was also awesome by the way!)
