Hotel Am Rathaus

Reviewed February 17, 2012

Hotel am Rathaus (don't know why it is called 'El Rancho' in Tripadvisor?) is a small cosy hotel in the middle of Altstadt. Reception is not open during the night, so you keep the room key to let yourself in to the building at late hours.

I had room 6 on the fourth floor (note: no elevator!), a small single room with an even smaller hallway. The bathroom (with a shower cabin) was tiny, but adequate. There was a nice view from the windows, and the bed, although small, was very comfy.

Breakfast is served in a home-kitchen-like room and have a good assortment of everything you would expect. however, one morning both the breakfast room and the reception was totally empty, so (a bit confused) I bought something on the street instead.

When returning later during the day the owner was devastated and expressed his sincere apologies. It turned out that there had been a big traffic accident during the morning rush, and he was caught in the traffic jam and arrived too late to the hotel. He offered me a good bottle of wine for the evening, and again expressed how sorry he was.

Despite the mishap with the breakfast I think the hotel and the location is lovely, and I will try to stay there again when I go to Düsseldorf the next time. The free WiFi (with good speed) made working and surfing easy as well.

Stayed here while visiting a number of friends in Dusseldorf and accommodation was at a premium because of a Messe. Very friendly staff. I was lucky enough to get the top floor room which has a small roof terrace. Not noisy despite being in the heart of the Altstadt. Great location. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Be cheeky and ask for the top floor to bag roof terrace (be aware there is no lift).

Myself & my wife and 2 young daughters stayed there for weekend. It is in a fantastic location right in heart of Alt Stadt (old town) in Markt platz. Our room overlooked the beautiful Christmas Market there literally 6 feet from our hotel door. The excellent friendly staff provided our 2 daughters with 2 extra beds at no additional charge and they even allowed me to check in on line on their pc. The breakfast was beautiful with excellent choice of foods. Our bedroom was suprisingly very spacious and resembled an apartment. I would highly recommend as it was a throughly enjoyable experience. Only minor issue was there are stairs, no lift and no bar.
