On September 2012, my wife and I traveled for three weeks through several cities in Germany. We had problems finding suitable accomodation in Dusseldorf and Cologne due to some trade fairs and festivals.
Hotel Max turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. It is located near the central station and this is perhaps the only slight negative about this place. But, the hotel is very clean, with nicely appointed rooms and modern furniture and bathrooms. However, perhaps its best features are the small details that makes your stay a pleasure. The hotel is very small and minimally staffed, when you arrive, you are provided with transportation city passes for the lenght of your stay, and you are given access to free coffe (wide selection),mineral water, and beer.
The breakfast buffet is simple but the food ingredients are very good. A couple of times we asked for eggs which were freshly prepared for us, either scrambled or soft boiled. My wife fell in love with the small toy-like egg holders. You can see these in the posted photos on tripadvisor.
No doubnt about it, the high rating of Hotel Max is very weel deserved. If you are looking for simple, attentive, clean, and friendly accomodation in Dusseldorf, you can not go wrong staying here.
