     visit the ruhr “pot” and share in the special dynamics of the region. Beer, coal and steel once
     defined people’s lives in Dortmund. In the meantime art, creativity and the new media have come
     to stay. the ruhr metropolis is undergoing change and experiencing a sense of departure – and
     Dortmund is playing a key role. we’ve already saved you a place!

only a few minutes away.

     QualIty & safety
     In matters of budget accommodation,
     the two issues of quality and safety
     are inseparably linked. Customers are
     justifiably concerned to stay in a safe
     and comfortable environment. The
     standard of budget accommodation
     in Germany, but also in Austria has
     improved enormously over the last 10
     years: by international comparison, it
     is very hard to beat.

     Quality of service and the safety of
     our guests have been priorities at
     A&O HOTELS and HOSTELS for more
     than 10 years now. We demand high
     standards in everything from equip-
     ment to service, and our facilities are
     regularly and meticulously checked.
     The central, big-city locations of our
     A&O hostels may sometimes occasion
     a greater need for guests’ security,
     and we are happy to take this into
     account. In all our hostels, for ex-
     ample, 24-hour service is a matter of
     course, on all 365 days each year. You
     will always find someone competent
     to help you with expert advice in case
     any problems arise.

     Without exception, all our bedrooms,
     public and non-public rooms are con-
     nected to the central fire alarm system
     via fire and smoke detectors. The
     central system is directly linked to the
     fire station, so that the rescue services
     are alarmed without losing any time in
     an emergency.

     The key cards for the rooms are valid
     for a limited period only, so that e.g.
     unpleasant surprises from former re-
     sidents are avoided; these can always
     be a risk when a traditional key sys-
     tem is employed. In all A&O hostels,
     the full security technology is super-
     vised by specially trained personnel
     and our additional night watchmen
     support the reception staff and ensure
     that guests can sleep peacefully.
