The A&O Dortmund opened in April 2011 with modern rooms in various hotel and hostel categories. It is located right in Dortmund's city centre. It offers 2 star sleeping comfort in the hotel area and 4 star hostel quality.


The A&O Dortmund is ca. 300 meters from the Central Station and only ten minutes by foot from the main shopping street "Westenhellweg". With its central location and good connections the A&O is easy to reach and is ideal as a starting point for excursions into the city and the surrounding Ruhr towns.


In addition to the modern rooms the A&O Dortmund also has a comfortably furnished, spacious lobby and bar. Here you can sit back and relax in the laid back atmosphere. Our conference rooms are great for discussing business matters with your colleagues or partners.

Zimmer sauber, klein aber ausreichend. Frühstück gut. Personal teilweise ein wenig kühl. Lage super. Ansonsten sehr, sehr zufrieden

Personal sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Kinderfreundliche Lobby.Super Frühstücksbuffet. Einziger Minuspunkt: Vorhang des Zimmerfensters geht nur bis zum unteren Drittel des Fensters, Zimmer war die ganze Nacht hell erleuchtet, da das Licht der fahrenden Autos von der Hauptstraße sehr geblendet hat. Lage des Hauses direkt an einer stark befahrenen Hauptstraße, nachts sehr laut.
