Gunnewig Esplanade is located centrally in Düsseldorf. Approximately 15-20 minutes walk to the old town and 10 minutes to the central station. Both the reception and the rooms is quite dated. On the positive side the hotel seemed clean and the staff at the breakfast area where very service minded.

I stayed here on the night of 1st August 2014, at the recommendation of a German friend. I acknowledge that the hotel does not have air conditioning, but apart from that, I cannot fault the experience I had. The members of staff I encountered were polite and helpful. My room was spacious and well equipped - lobby/wardrobe area, generous bedroom... More

The staff are incredible and the warm welcome we received was amazing. They produced a gorgeous birthday cake on the day and all sang happy birthday to him.... More

I don't know why this hotel doesn't have a higher rating. We visited in December at short notice to see the Kerst Markt and managed to get a booking here. The staff were great, the rooms were on the smaller side but very comfortable and quiet. The prices were good and included a good breakfast.

This hotel is well suited for the business traveler. Excellent value, wonderful staff and a top notch breakfast. It is in a good location that is easily accessible to all of Dusseldorf's many restaurants, train, museums and sites.

As a business hotel to sleep this hotel is ok but if you want any creature comforts this may not be for you. I was freezing in the evenings as the heat was not yet turned on. I had to take an ice shower due to the water heater not being on at 03.45 in the morning. All in all... More

This hotel is mostly known as "home", after the nickname given to it by our company's people, I stayed 2 nights this week there once more, enjoying the same hospitality and smiling service by its friendly personnel and been tormented once again at bedtime by a very soft pillow and an extremely hot bed cover.

I stayed in Esplanade Dusseldorf for one night. The hotel is convinient and in a good location. The rooms are clean but very small. The breakkfast is decent, nothing special but generally OK. The reception needs some renovation. In general, you will definately not fall in love with this hotel but for a business traveller it is a good choice.
