Nice hotel with unique flair. Very welcoming reception area. It all feels a little small, but in a nice and cosy kind of way. The interior is very nice, the breakfast restaurant is great as is the hotel bar. The rooms are elegant and modern.

Stayed here for two nights, and I was really impressed with the quality and rooms. I got a double room, which was really large and nicely furnished. Light colors, good looking furniture and a good view, from the large balcony. The bed was nice and big, and felt almost new.
Cleaning seemed good and thorough.

The breakfast (not included) was VERY good. Lot's of different fruits, youghurts, bread, choice of fried or scrabled eggs etc..

The staff was really friendly and nice, both in the reception and in the bar.

The only downside is that the hotel is very close to the railway, so this makes some noise in the morning and night, but not enough to really disturb you.

I selected this hotel as I had a business trip to Essen and on the way back I rather stay somewhere close to the Dusseldorf airport rather to wake up earlier and drive with train in the morning. I like my stay in this hotel. On the outside it is nothing in particular but as soon as you enter you see that it has some nice ambience and modern styling. Room I was situated was very big with two single beds. Beds were very comfortable and I had a very good relaxing sleep. Even though the tram is driving just next to the building sound isolation is very effective and it does not distract you. Bathroom is very clean and everything is operating very good. I would also enjoyed quite tasty breakfast. I enjoyed German salami all kinds and cheese. Also juice was first class quality. As it was late September it was raining and it was already a bit cold so staying in room was a bit chilly but anyway I was quickly into bed so that was refreshing and I enjoyed that it was like that. Place is offering also free internet so I believe it is of good value and I give it a four stars. Airport is close and it is of walking distance about 20 minutes.

I have regularly stayed here on business as it's close to the airport and to my employer's Dusseldorf offices. I have always found the welcome to be friendly, and I like the spacious rooms, with big beds, as well as the well equipped bathrooms. This is not a luxury hotel, nor does it make claims to be, but it is a good standard, clean, pleasant, well maintained. The bar is small and does not do food in the evenings unless you want a snack not a meal, but there is an Italian and a Chinese restaurant within 5 minutes on foot, or you can get a train to the airport and eat there (train cost is €2.40 or you can walk in around 15 minutes), or you can catch a tram to the city centre and seek out something to eat there.

Breakfasts have always been good when I have been there. Things do run out but they are topped up reasonably promptly (and if they aren't you can always ask), and there is a good choice of cold meats, cheese, fish including gravad lax, rolls, breads, cereals, yogurts, coffee, tea and eggs. Yes, it's not the cheapest breakfast around, but again, if you are on a tight budget there is a bakery a couple of minutes away on the high street where you can have a light breakfast without breaking the bank.

Room Tip: I would agree that if you are a light sleeper, you should ask for a room on the side of the hotel th...

We stayed here for one night just before our flight back to the states. I chose this place because it was relatively inexpensive compared to the other hotels near the airport. It was surprising that even though this place is five minutes from the airport they do not provide a shuttle service. This might be a common thing in Germany, I'm not sure though. We had to take a taxi which typically costs 9 euros (Our driver got lost and charged us 21 euros. Make sure your driver knows where this place is before he starts driving.)

The staff was relatively friendly and spoke acceptable English. We asked them for a restaurant recommendation and they sent us to El Gato Verde, just an 8 minute walk away, which had pretty good Italian food for about $12 euros a plate (not including wine).

We paid a base rate of $74, plus $43 extra guest fee (there were three of us) and $8 in taxes. The room was modern, spacious, and clean. At first sight it seemed quite nice. But I changed my mind after being there for a few minutes. First of all our room faced the tram rail line which was about 60 yards from our window. Every time the tram rode by you could hear a noticeable rumble. This definitely lessened the luxury feel of the room. Like most hotels I've stayed in you could also hear activities in adjacent rooms, including when toilets were being flushed upstairs. I will say however that it wasn't as loud as in other hotels I've stayed in Europe. The thing that bothered me most though is the bed they put in the room for the additional guest (Me). The room was large enough for a real bed with a normal mattress, but instead they gave me an air mattress. It was a nice one with a built-in electric inflation system. However, throughout the night the mattress lost about 20% of the air in it. Needless to say my back wasn't very happy in the morning.

The next morning we got our wake up call about 8 minutes late and when we got up we skipped the 16 euro breakfast that seemed expensive to us. I didn't see what they served so I can't comment on the quality of the food.

If it hadn't been for the tram and mattress I would have rated this hotel a 4. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a room on the other side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side opposite of the tram.

Stayed here on business in Feb and found it very comfortable. About a 5 minute taxi journey from the airport and the nearby train station also offers a direct service to the airport.

Receptionist was very friendly and I was checked in easily. I was also given a wi-fi code - free wi-fi is great and the connection was fine throughout my stay.

The room was large, very clean and comfortable with a huge bed. A desk-space/working area and also comfortable chairs and a small coffee table. There was also a balcony which was nice to get some 'fresh air' though being early Feb it was rather a bit too fresh. Bathroom was on the small side but it didn't really bother me as a single traveller. There was no bath but the shower was of a good pressure and always hot.

There is no restaurant at the hotel which I was unaware of when I arrived, they do serve a kind of savoury tart in the bar but it didn't look particularly appertising from the pictures. However, the hotel are more than happy to recommend a nearby restaurant or for you to order a take-away to your room and they provide menus from the local take-aways in your room. These menus (as you would expect) are all in German and as I'm a little ropey on the language found some difficult to translate. One of the Italian restaurants has an online order service and my order was with me in approx 15mins which was great.

The hotel is in a quiet area but there is a tramline that runs alongside it. The noise from this wasn't very loud but you could still hear it at times. If you are a very light sleeper I would request a room on the other side of the hotel.

The bar area in the hotel is nice with plenty of choice drinks-wise and at reasonable prices.

Breakfast is plentiful with all the usual continental bits on offer as well as an option of eggs cooked to your liking.

I would recommend this hotel.

Hotel is a little bit expensive for its provided value. The room is absolutely standard and they claiming that tricky chair in it is worth of calling it "design" hotel. However room was very comfortable and clean. I had just a problem with number of flies behind bed which I had to kill before sleep. Its not located very close to airport so you have to take a taxi (its not expensive even for German standards). I had to wake up early morning so I didnt had a breakfast.
