    « Best place to stay »

    Stayed here for 3 nights on business. The staff knew decent English and were welcoming and helpful. The hotel is well maintained. Facilities such as indoor pool, sauna are automated for entry. It was quiet at the evenings so that I could have the pool and sauna all for myself. Breakfast in the mornings was best in class with lots of choices. The road outside was under repair so my taxi had to come around at every drop off.

    « Nice at first glance. So much better under the surface. »

    This is a real dark horse of a hotel. On its surface, the Best Western in Paderborn looks pretty standard. Look again though and some of its features turn it into something far closer to exceptional. After dark, when its colourful exterior lights go on, it transforms into something almost boutique looking. Certainly far more stylish than you initially give it credit for anyway. The panorama bar/restaurant leaves an amazing impression ? very stylish. We didn't get the chance to eat there and frankly we were gutted we weren't able. Ditto for a drink in the small cool looking ground floor bar. Staff came across as friendly and helpful. This is a long running independently owned and managed franchise and it shows. Not had a huge amount of experience of Best Westerns, but it was head and shoulders above the one in Kassel, which we had a stop-off stay at the year before. Lots of the reviews below trumpet its pool (situated, unusually, on the top floor). Not for no good reason ? it's brilliant! Clean, well tended, with great facilities and with near panoramic views of Paderborn as you swim. Also quiet ? our family swam there by ourselves for 30 mins or so. If you have the time, explore this level too. We couldn't believe the range of other facilities (sauna, steam room and others) its spa had tucked away. Paderborn is a lovely place, and if you're stopping off there, seriously, don't think further than this hotel. Its bloody great and I hope I have cause to stay again one day!

    « Lovely hotel in the centre of Paderborn »

    The hotel is located in the centre of Paderborn, 5 minutes walk from the high street and with lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had a room overlooking the town and the view was beautiful. Breakfast was very good as well. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Friendly and helpful staff »

    Only stayed one night and would have stayed longer if we were not travelling. Friendly reception on arrival and helpful staff whilst staying. The food was good and although a buffet style breakfast the coffee/tea is served at your table. Drinks are not budget prices - a bottle of wine 30 Eur. The hotel is clean and the WiFi is free. A packet of jelly sweets on you bed - a small but nice touch. Definitely would stay again.

    « International telephone call charges...horrible »

    40 euros for 3 mins call to India ? Really Hotelbook in room....it is mentioned .30 euro per unit for phone call. When asked Staffabout same....they dont know what is meaning of .30 euro per unit(what is the standard or basis of unit here )..per minue or per all ..???/ ALso 2000 euro fine if staying in hotel ? Is that a law in Germany or Hotel's new way of earning more money ??? Be careful of staff,they can be rude at times . Staff need to realize guests are not staying here for free.They are paying for stay and should be respected.

    « Central location, professionell service »

    Stayed for one night and was surprised that when arriving around 1200 cet the comment from reception was "how nice that you are here. This is your key...Please enjoy your stay". Many times I was told in other hotels that 12 is too early and that I have to wait. Not in this hotel. Rooms are small but with everything one needs. Minibar with snacks is in the room and the spa area worthwhile visiting. The hotel is in the city center so you walk 5min and you can visit many restaurants and bars. Breakfast was sufficient however i was really surprised that the room was packed till the last seat...anyway i got a seat so all good. Left satisfied this location...nothing to complain about all good...would go again.

    « Great Hotel. »

    I am a regular visitor to thishotel and they just get better and better. The staff cannot do enough for you and all speak English which is a help.The rooms are fantastic and are well appointed. They also have German,UK aswell as various other continental channels. Breakfast caters for both Continental and British tastes and can be busy at times.Easily the best hotel that I have stayed at in this part of Germany

    « Excellent hotel with superb facilities »

    Extremely pleasant hotel in the lovely town of Paderborn, Germany. Stayed here for 5 nights and found it to be consistently excellent. Great location in the town. I didn't eat in the restaurant, though I did have a meal in the bar which was lovely. Breakfast was very good and offered everything you could possibly want. I had a room on the 6th floor with terrific views over the town and the lovely church. But the crowning glory of this hotel is the swimming pool and spa on the top floor (8th Floor). Absolutely spotless and it really modern. Highly recommended

    « Great value »

    Great location. Super showers in the en-suite. The spa facilities on the 8th floor are awesome with amazing views of Paderborn. Staff very friendly. Breakfast buffet is superb. The Terrace bar/restaurant is outstanding especially in the summer.

    « Comfortable Hotel for business stay »

    Enjoyed a few nights here over recent weeks and always enjoyed my stay. Rooms are spacious and modern; outdoor terrace is located on an upper floor and has good views over the surrounding areas and is good place to meet up with friends or colleagues. Hotel is located centrally so easy to reach bars and restaurants on foot.

    « Almost Perfect »

    When you hear of Best Western Hotels, you normally think of a mid-range slightly dates but reasonable hotel. I'm beginning to realise that Best Western Premier, really is a step up from what you might expect. This hotel has an older section which is good value, but nothing special. However, onto of a C&A department store next door, it has built a new block of rooms, function spaces and wonderful rooftop restaurant. These new rooms are very good quality with lots of space and facilities. This internet is free and fast and the swimming pool is large with fantastic views across the city. The restaurant is slightly over priced and the pool is too cold for relaxing in, but great for fitness lengths.

    « Family stay »

    Very convenient position. Very close to centre and transport links. Efficient and helpful staff. Beautiful dining terrace with small but tasty menu. It has its own swimming pool but it was so cold only my foot made it in! Comfortable rooms and a nice breakfast.

    « Visiting my birth place »

    It is the 2nd time I have stayed at this hotel, however it was a very important visit this time as I was visiting all the places I lived with my parents ie Paderborn, Bad Lippspringe and Rinteln, my father recently passed away so it was a very emotional visit, the hotel staff made it very nice to return to this hotel and the service was always excellent, we will certainly return.

    « Convenient position »

    Stayed three times at this hotel and found it very convenient. Husband goes to business meetings and I go shopping. We book bed and breakfast as there are many restaurants in the beautiful town of Padaborn for evening meals. Hotel staff, pleasant, rooms comfortable. Breakfast ok, definitely a business man's hotel.

    « Peaceful Nights Sleep »

    Having spent two sleepless nights in a different hotel in Paderborn we decided to move and spend the last night of our stay in the Arosa - best decision!! We chose a Deluxe room and were glad we did. The bed was huge (although as is common in continental hotels it was made up of two beds pushed together) and so comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with complimentary toiletries and a fantastic shower (with bath). The room had a tv, sofa and chair, coffee table and a desk as well as a tea and coffee machine. The aircon worked well amd was reasonably quiet although we did have to turn it off in the middle of the night as it was making a little bit of noise but as the room was cool enough this wasn't a problem. The curtains blocked out a lot of the light and the room was so quiet it was easy to forget that the hotel is located in the middle of town right near a busy road. We didn't have chance to use the restaurant or the swimming pool facilities however the menu for the restaurant did look delicious. Overall we had a fantastic nights stay at the Arosa and I would definitely recommend it for anyone needing to stay in Paderborn.

    « Good business location »

    This hotel provides a good location for business travel, the rooms are clean well equipped and a good size. The breakfast offers a wide range of options. The restaurant served one of the best steaks I have had in a long time (250g ribeye). It would be good if the towels they provided were a little bigger (an actual bath towel would be appreciated). The car park is not very practical for current production cars and would benefit from the spaces being re-marked at an appropriate size (condition is worsened because you have to pay an additional charge).

    4
    « Very comfortable rooms, good location »

    The Arosa is a good hotel with very friendly staff and good sized comfortable rooms, close to suite size in fact. The breakfast is a substantial buffet and the staff are attentive. The bar is a little compact, but serves a good pint of Veltins with a sound bar menu of snacks. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Paderborn area.

    « Great hotel with good location »

    Double room with separable beds. Window on the side with quiet rooms. Bathroom with all amenities needs except a shower without a door. Extensive European breakfast with some warm food. Bit overpriced to my feel but luxurious and rich atmosphere at breakfast room.

    « Comfortable Hotel in City Centre »

    Central location on the ring road in Paderborn, just 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street. The Deluxe Rooms are very spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated and are located at the rear of the hotel. Free WiFi, flat screen TV with a good selection of English language channels, coffee machine, safe, minibar, lots of storage/wardrobe space. Nice toiletries are provided in the bathroom, along with bathrobes and slippers. On the top floor of the hotel is the excellent swimming pool, stream room & sauna complex. This offers great views over the city and is an ideal way to chill out for a couple of hours. The bar within the hotel is very small and can get crowded when busy. The buffet breakfast offered an extensive choice of cold food but hot food was limited to eggs, bacon and sausage. Breakfast was served until 11.00. The staff at the hotel are excellent, very helpful and will endeavour to resolve an issues you may have. The hotel is currently upgarding the bathrooms in some of the rooms, and parts of the hotel are a bit dated. Rooms on the front of the hotel are subject to noise from the ring road, so if you are a light sleeper request or book a room on the rear of the hotel.

    I always stay at this hotel. Everything about it is great. Good location, car parking is at the hotel, and easy. They have a sauna, spa, and pool, all included at no extra cost. The bar is small, but just right. My wife had the chilli, and was very pleased with it. I like this hotel, and will always use it when I visit Paderborn.

    Staying overnight at Best Western Arosa in Paderborn. Good location and was to arrive. Marvelous SPA and sauna department especially when you stayed alone there. Nice pool at the roof top with nice view over the city. Small and friendly pub.

    « 7 night stay »

    This hotel does have a great location. You're literally five minutes from the centre of town which is great. The night time was very noisy (people outside on street and in hotel) but this was only on the weekend. We stayed here whilst waiting for our furniture to arrive so we could move to our new home, so we had quite a lot of stuff with us and our dog! The room itself was very large and the bathroom was massive! The shower was probably the nicest shower we've ever experienced! We had breakfast in the hotel every morning and did enjoy it (especially the waffles at the weekend!) however had we had to pay for breakfast out of our own money we would've thought it expensive for what it is. The pool was very cold, we only visited it once and that was only for twenty minutes before our little girl was shivering so much we decided it just wasn't worth it. We ate in the bar one evening. This was okay. Not much choice and quite slow. And the waitress forgot part of our order too. She was very apologetic though. We ate in the main restaurant once as well and have to say I was very impressed with the food, the service not so much. Unfortunately the waitresses were too busy chatting to each other so we were constantly having to catch their attention for things (drinks, dessert etc). The reception staff were hit and miss.... Sometimes really friendly, other times made you feel like a nuisance. The coffee machine in the waiting area had sour milk/cream in twice and she almost argued with my husband on one of the occasions as to whether it actually was off or not. It was rancid! Anyway she did change it in the end. All in all, we thought our stay was just average I'm afraid. Would we recommend it, hmmmm yes but with some caution!

    « Exactly as it should be »

    Room had thick carpet but was very clean and comfortable with a very nice view over Paderborn. Wifi was free and quite fast. 5/5 Breakfast did not have the biggest selection but quality was very good. I did not eat at the restaurant. 4/5 The hotel is located just a 2 minute walk from the city centre and there are a lot of nice places to eat in the vicinity. Staff was very helpfull, no complaints at all. Highlight of the hotel is the great and seemingly brand new wellness area on the top floor, with a large pool, sauna, steam bath etc. 5/5

    « Great Hotel, Great Location »

    Had to go to Paderborn for work and I stayed there for three nights. The hotel is very nice overall, great location, and friendly staff. The internet has a very decent speed, never had any troubles with it. The only downside would be that they charge for parking, €10.00 per day. I only had breakfast once in the hotel and I was very satisfied with it. They have fresh fruit, fresh juices, a variety of bread, cheese, spreads, jams and cold cuts. Also very good coffee and even a tea station. You can also order fried eggs and bacon to your table (imcluded in price).

    « clean and modern hotel »

    We stayed here for 1 night when we first arrived in Germany. It was wonderful. The staff were very polite and made us feel comfortable. We have a dog so expected to get a rubbish room. But the room Was lovely very spacious and clean. I couldn't have asked for better. Definitely worth a stay if you come to paderborn. Also only walking distance from the town centre.

    « Lovely hotel, friendly staff and secure carpark. »

    We stayed in this hotel on our first night in Germany. The staff made us feel very welcomed. During our stay the hotel restaurant, the Chalet was been renovated so we had to use Tell's bar, really lovely little bar and the food was amazing. We would recommend the house burger. The breakfast was first class. The room was by far the most comfortable and practical we've stayed in as a family with a dog. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is literally round the corner from Paderborn centre. We would stay in the hotel again and recommend it to all our friends and family.

    « Fantastic location »

    Comfortable clean and spacious hotel with lovely pool and sauna facilities. Ideal location for town and train station. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Breakfast was expensive at €30 euro per day for two of us, and very disappointed as we had to wait 40 minutes for food in the bar.

    « View and wellness »

    Wonderful view, we had the Dome right in front of the window, spacious and bright rooms, everything within walking distance. The panorama view from the wellness area on the 8th floor even topped the view from our room. Actually, the Sauna and Pool area rated under the top ten - modern, clean, high quality equipment, panorama view. Very generous late check out, nice and helpful staff.

    « Excellent Hotel & location - Breakfast A No-No »

    Came as a wedding party "still here" 8-12 October, the hotel is located in the centre of Paderborn a great location, the hotel itself is spotlessly clean, the rooms are large and very comfortable I would recommend the hotel, they have a great pool sauna and steam room on the 8th floor, we were on the 7th floor with great views of the city, only fault was breakfast cost 15 Euro a night 8 of us in total 120 Euro a day, it was very basic, never filled up with things,and we had to ask for everything and was made to feel we were a nuisance total bill for breakfast alone 480 Euro, first day there was a fresh orange squeezer when we asked second day we were told no fruit. This was extremely pricey and would we recommend going out for breakfast, staff in the restaurant each morning were unhelpful and miserable. Overall apart from breakfast the hotel is a must. Lovely City Paderborn.

    Stayed at the Arosa hotel for 2 nights - it was excellent. English speaking, friendly reception staff. Clean, spacious and fresh room. Fabulous breakfast. No complaints whatsoever - would definitely recommend it.

    « comfortable and right in the centre »

    We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed Paderborn and Eastern Westfalia. The friendly staff made us feel good, offered wonderful breakfast and was supporting our touristic activities nicely. Not to mention the cosy Bar at the end of each day. The rooms offered quietness at closed windows. Paderborn´s Public Service do like very early hours chatting on backstreets even at weekends. The pool on the top level is really worth your visit. At early morning sunshine I was impressed of the scenic, even better than at the convention level!

    « Good city hotel for bussines stay »

    I stayed one weekin this hotel and it was wery comfortable. The room was on sixth floor, so I had great view on all the city and area around. The room itself is roomy enough with all amenities, that You expect. Bathroom is clean and comfortable. I only had breakfast and it was rich and fresh from salty meals to sweet. Lot of choice of fruits and vegetables. The stuff is correct as You expect. This hotel has private parking on first three floors, so You will not to be worried about finding the parking place around. I would definitely recommend this hotel ashamed to even the most demanding guests. I think it is the best hotel in Paderborn You can choose.
