If you are looking for a hotel for just a night (or two) which is not entirely at the outskirts of Dusseldorf, this is an OK place to stay. Not very lively, a small bar and TV room. Price/quality balance is fair.

I spent 3 nights at the hotel over Easter 2015. Excellent service, friendly and helpful staff. Delicious breakfast buffet. Hotel is not far away from the centrum (around 20-25 minutes walk to the Altstadt and 15 minutes walk to the Hauptbahnhof. With trams 5-10 minutes both. Hotel is not new, but has its charm. Peaceful, nice room with tv, wifi,... More

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

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

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.

Dear guest, We want to thank you for your kind feedback and your constructive criticism regarding our reception. In fact, a "facelift" of the reception is part of our renovation plans for the coming year. We hope that we can convince you to visit us again and give you a new view of our services and refunished facilities. Looking forward... More
