Nice hotel located 15 mins walk from the dome and station which is great because it is away from the heavy tourist traffic. We stayed in room 129 business class king size which was quiet, good size and the staff setup a nice travel cot (free of charge) for our little one with extra towels & toiletries for her which...

This Lindner hotel keeps the great comfort of the Marriott Renaissance it was converted from. However, the new management seems to have a quite short-sighted way of making an extra euro. At check-in, I asked and was told the procedure to reach the wifi, but not that it is a whopping 14,50 euro a day. The minibar is now empty... More

Spent two nights here with friends during a football trip. Pretty good location, 10-15 minutes walk to the dome and central station. The hotel is a good 4 star option with nice rooms and one of the best hotel breakfasts I ever had! You have to be a Lindner blabla member to get free wifi. This is really a minus... More

I stayed four nights here and thought everything was quite nice. The rooms, bathrooms, lobby, bar, breakfast, and service were all top-notch. The main thing I didn't like was the €25 per day for parking in the hotel garage. Especially considering that there is a parking garage directly across the street from the hotel that only charges €12 per day.... More

Stayed here for the second time on business, this is a well located hotel with good amenities and is very convenient for the city. The only problem was some renovation work that was taking place in the hotel which started around 7.30am, it turned out that the contractors had not had permission to start that early. Within hours I had... More

The City Plaza is very good in almost every respect, with little to criticise in the location, the public areas, our room, the restaurant, the staff. A 4/5-star rating would easily be appropriate, but I'm not awarding it for one reason - its wifi policy. These days, fully customer-friendly hotels provide wifi free; others charge a nominal amount; a few... More

We stayed here fro 4 nights during an exhibition in Dusseldorf. The environment of the hotel was quite old, and the room as well.
