Breakfast and location Bad: Internet is very slow

Really nice hotel.

A bit difficult to find on a dark rainy night but a lovely welcoming hotel with good food and immaculate comfy room. Hotel staff pleasant and accommodating. So good we returned there on the way back to UK.

After Mercure took over: more comfortable rooms, restaurant is nice, view is great.

After the switch from Park Inn to Mercure in 2017, the rooms have been renovated to be brighter, more modern, and bathrooms more comfortable (now a walk-in shower, but not sure if all rooms are like that. When traveling with kid, room rooms have comfortable bed sofa. Restaurant is still good. Bad: Some rooms are add the ground floor, which might be a bit "weird" when suddenly somebody is walking outside. The good thing: it is up a hill, not much folks around. It is also not the best hotel to "just go for a stroll to the city".

A perfect hotel to rest on a long journey.

Very good room size, clean bathroom, very good selection of breakfast food, very friendly service, perfect location of the hotel. We will return to the hotel again on our next trip. Bad: Nothing like that. Everything was perfect.

Comfortable and relaxing stay

Large range of foods, very enjoyable and filling. Ate breakfast and didn't feel like eating until that evening.

The rooms were really clean and bathroom was spotless. Bad: The carpets in the main hallway need a bit of upgrade. They smell a bit funny :/

Great value

Convenient for one night. Excellent breakfast. Comfortable bed. Too far from centre of Bielefeld for my taste. Bad: Location. Not near Altstadt.

Nice location with all you’d expect from a hotel at this price point.

Comfortable rooms, hotel location. Helpful staff. Bad: Room wasn’t ready for accommodating the sofa bed occupant in our group. This was however quickly rectified by staff.

Nice hotel, service improvement necessary

We have stayed at am Johannesburg before, both when it was a Novotel and last summer. The hotel have gotten a very nice redecorating, but the service has deteriorated somewhat since last year. The service in the restaurant was nice but somewhat inexperienced about what was on the menu. As a card-holder i was offered a welcoming drink, but my husband had to pay for his, even if it said on the card, that all the guests in my room should have one too. The breakfast was a bit disappointing for german standards

Nice business Hotel

On the top of a hill in Bielefeld surrounded by trees, quite location very close to the center of the city. Comfortable rooms and a nice terrace where you can have lunch with a beautiful view to the castle. Large free parking.

Shaun’s review

Very good apart from staff had poor service

Shaun on, 17.06.2019

A good stay.

Friendly staff and quite good location. Greenery surrounding on the hill, which is nice and peaceful. Bad: A little bit far to walk to the city (although it's a good exercise and within acceptable distance). Only if you're late at night from the city to the hotel, better off to take a taxi, as the walking track is dark.

Good - but windows need to be more sound proof

The location is perfect if you have a car - because public transport is not great in the area and there is not much happening around. The alternative is a taxi - which is not super expensive. However, a short downhill walk (about 15 mins) takes you to the centre of the city - but you have to climb back up the entire way (good stuff to stay fit on vacation). The room is fine but not many closets with clothes hangers. The staff are very friendly and nice - and that was one of the best things about this hotel. Breakfast was fine - but the same everyday. So, if you stay long enough - you are likely to stop enjoying it. Since the location is on a hill - the views are great (but you get such - or better - views from other locations of interest in the city, such as, the castle). My main complaint was - our room was near the parking lot and we could hear the noise on Friday/Saturday nights - which was quite annoying.

WiFi is awful!!! Not suitable at all for a business trip when you're expected to communicate globally via video calls.

Alles. Bad: War alles Nice.

Hill top experience

The place is clean and what I like about is quiet up at the hill top over looking the city. Walking into the city is just 10mins.

Alan on, 13.10.2018

a stopover...

was just a night stay to break our long journey to the next destination. room is good n work table is big enough plus placed by the window with natural lights. breakfast was ok apart from that the croissants and viennoiseries are a bit too dry :( unlike other hotels that I've been they r kept warm. Coffee has a strange after taste, most probably it's time for the machine to be détartrage ;) Otherwise, we've enjoyed our stay, nice hotel up the hill surrounded by the nature

Mercure bielefeld

It was a great experience to stay at mercure Hotel at bielefeld Germany. Location at the top of the hill is excellent and it has a panaromic view of bielefeld city. Checking in was. Ert smooth. Room was cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing. Checking out was equally smooth. Overall a very satisfying experience.

Good value for money on the weekend

We had a room with bed and sofa, sofa was sufficient for our 6 year old son for sleeping. Parking for free, location close to city center but on a hill top, therefore car needed, there is nothing in walking distance. Tassimo coffee maker in the room.

Very good hotel in lovely surroundings

Last time I was at Johannesburg Bielefeld it was still a Novotel. Then it was on it's way to be a bit worn down. In the meantime it has been a Park Inn-hotel and is now back in the Accor-group. It is very nicely redecorated. The rooms are light and enough space. As always in germany it is clean and well-kept. It has a fantastic view over the town - near the house of Dr. Oetker - and in the summer you just want to make use of the lovely terrassa. The evening meal was ok, the service during the whole stay very good, although the breakfast was a bit disappointing by German standards, but otherwise fine.
