“Great service”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Service was fantastic - really friendly, accomodating & helpful staff! My room was great - decent size, fairly basic, but very nice, with a comfortable bed & a big patio (bonus!). About 10 minute walk from train station & about a 20 minute walk to downtown... At first I thought it was too far to Alstadt, but there is shopping all along the way & it felt very safe, even late at night. There is also a market just a couple doors down, which was terrific to have nearby. Great value & will absolutely stay here again if I get back to Dusseldorf!

I stayed here last year and this visit was equally good (my only ever 5* rating). Perfect cleanliness, simple but good facilities, private bathroom on the floor, no breakfast for 35 euros a night. Its about a 7 min walk from the central station, not the greatest location. A 20 minute walk to Konigsalle, 25 min to the old town, or just walk to the station and take the reliable metro.

Arrived on Saturday afternoon roughly around 1400. Left the car in front of the hotel (on the street). We checked in and the owner immediately asked to go to the upfront reserved parking as we spoke or to do later. As the car was on the street we decided to do right away and the owner guided us to a parking spot located behind doors (so safe). After that he informed us that the 2 of us got the biggest room of the hotel (as he said you can play soccer in). Obviously quite doubting but when we arrived at the room it was indeed the room at the attick with yes (6) beds and the space was huge. Room basic but very clean, big flatscreen, WIFI for free so what more would you need.
Walk to city center is very simple and roughly 15 minutes, the water front would take 20 minutes.
Breakfast was until 10 Sunday morning but after a night out we slept in so arrived for check out at 1030 at the reception. Again the owner was there (does he sleep anyway?) and told us, well you guys are indeed late but breakfast is for sure still possible. We enjoyed the breakfast, rolls, eggs, yoghurt, all you would need and after that we left with a great posistive feeling. Professionally I've been in so many business hotels wher they pretend to have service; the Famosa Hotel has even more; Service with a capital S.

The hotel is very close to the centre and it is only minutes away fromthe main station. The staff at the hotel and very helpful and friendly, in fact they helped us us the interenet to locate the funparks close by. Rooms are well cleaned aswell. The breakfast is also sufficient to start of the day with. We where 8 of us divided into two rooms and it really is a very good and ideal hotel to visit if you had to go to Dusseldorf :) Thank you

Room Tip: All rooms are the same so any will do

The location was really great - a 10 min walk from the train station, from the shopping street or from the old town. The staff were very helpful. Indeed small rooms with no A/C and a bit noisy if you keep the window open but clean and comfortable for a couple of nights stay. TV programs only in German. Highly recommend it.

We needed accomodations for 3 and I looked for places that had beds instead of couch. The room was clean, big, and the beds were comfortable. The parking is very secure and next to hotel.There is no AC so we had to sleep with the windows open, which is no problem except for the noisy street that is on. It is not the best part of town but we never felt unsafe.
