We will come back to explore the lovely neighbourhood.

+ location (in the middle of Naturschutzpark, close to city centre) + cleaness + big parking + comfy beds and pillows + coffee machine in the room Bad: - toilet placement (too narrow, too close to the wall/door) - poorly isloated from noises (inside and outside)

Great comfort with an AC overlooking Bielefeld!

The beds were extremely comfortable! The AC was also very efficient. Bad: One power socket was half off the wall, and the connection made a large lamp flicker on and off... after that was taken care off though, no complaints.

Lovely surroundings

very helpful staff. Website didn't mention that the restaurant wasn't open and that there would be a very alternative breakfast. the staff at the reception did it outmost best to help in the situation. Room fine and clean

Room was standaard, clean and a nice welcome muffin. Check in was quick. Bad: The hallway looks really boring, room was really hot, even if you put the aircon on with temperature 17 degrees. Too bad they charge 5 euro for parking even around it is free parking.

Great location, comfortable accommodation, delicious breakfast, highly professional hotel manager

Great location in a quiet park, with a view over the city and at the same time at walking distance from the center of Bielefeld. Very clean, comfortable rooms. The breakfast is very diverse and well supplied, till 11:00 o'clock. Most impressive was the professional attitude of the hotel manager who responded very kindly and attentively to our request for a room change. We got a room upgrade for the same price as the first room and while waiting for arranging the room change we received free drinks. Thanks a lol to the manager! Bad: The first room (for three people) we received had a broken lamp, the phone and the heating did not work.

Convenient Modern Hotel Close to Old Town Bielefeld

I have stayed in many Mercure (Accor) hotels - so this review is somewhat comparative. I liked the fact that I was reserved a "non-allergic" room - because I had requested non feather pillows and bedding - that was really nice. The location of the hotel at the top of the hill overlooking the town was great - there is a staircase leading down to the historic old town (where at this time of year there is a Christmas market). The restaurant for dinner was modern and the food was beautifully served and presented - I especially recommend the goats cheese starter. The breakfast was nice and had a good selection. The bed was comfortable. Overall it was a nice stay overnight. Bad: The check in process was too long - there was a family checking in for the Christmas break and both the Receptionists were dealing with them and not myself and another guest. The carpets in the hall area of the corridor to the room were old, dirty and needed changing. The carpet in my room was also dirty and needed cleaning and the bathroom smelled very damp and needed airing or something. These are minor details but the interior decor in the rooms does not reflect the very modern decor in the main areas of the hotel.

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.

Zbigniew on, 15.09.2019

Comfortable and relaxing stay

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

Dusan on, 01.09.2019


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 :/

Marlena on, 23.08.2019

Great value

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

Neil on, 21.08.2019

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.
