Noisy and room smelled of cigarette, staff unhelpfPositiv: Location is OK. Not too far from where stuff happens (main station mainly), but not a particularly nice area by itself.Negativ: The room we were given smelled very strongly of cigarette. We immediately complained but the only member of staff there at the time told us the hotel was fully booked for the night so we couldn't switch rooms. He said he'd get back to me once he spoke with the owner, but he never contacted me, neither by phone or by knocking on our room. We ended up sleeping with the windows open, but the smell was still there throughout the night. The air in the hall was much cleaner than that of the room. You get what you pay, I guess.
Almost very good, except...Positiv: Quiet, very clean, coffee available in the corridor, nice greeting staff, affordable... bottle opener in the room :)Negativ: When we booked, we were not asked if we wanted a breakfast included. In every single hotel we were the days before, all breakfasts were included, so we forgot that in this one it wasn't the case. The asian girl in charge of cleaning the dining room waited for us to start our breakfast to ask for our "breakfast card". Obviously we didn't have it. So she became VERY UNFRIENDLY, asked for our room keycard and went to the reception desk. When she went back, she just gave us our keycard back, without a word or even a smile. We would have appreciated a request for this breakfast card BEFORE we entered the room. We felt like we were trapped, after feeling that we committed a crime. Too bad, so far it had been a very pleasant stay.
Hotel für StadtreisendePositiv: Die Nähe zum HB Düsseldorf überzeugt. Die Lage ist verkehrsbedingt eher laut, aber in Fussnähe zum Hauptbahnhof ist ein urbanes Umfeld unumgänglich und die Fenster sind sehr gut isoliert. Empfehlenswert für Städtereisende und Business-Aufenthalter ohne 5 Sterne Erwartungen. Auch die Altstadt ist in 10 Minuten zu Fuss zu erreichen.
Wie eine Kleinwohnung im Zentrum, man fühlt sich schnell zuhause!Negativ: Wenn man ein Zimmer im 5. oder 6. Stockwerk hat merkt man, dass der Aufzug sehr langsam ist. Sonst war alles tip top.
