“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I booked this hotel for 1 night with my wife. It is conveniently located in the heart of the city, within walking distance to the old city, as well as the modern part, close to a subway station too.
The room are reasonably sized, beds comfortable, breakfast pretty good.
Staff are friendly and always willing to offer their help.
Acoustic isolation between rooms need improvement, as one can literally hear everything that's happening in the rooms next door...

This is an ideal hotel for an affordable break in Dusseldorf. It is in a good location 10 mins walk from the railway station and 10 mins walk to the city centre, provides a good breakfast, and has the benefit of free Wi Fi. We booked a room for three, and were given a great room on the top floor at the rear of the hotel that was really quiet. Although the room was basically furnished it was bright and clean, had a modern bathroom, with the single bed partially separated from the main area in an alcove. The staff, especially on reception were friendly and helpful, though the kitchen staff appeared to be overrun when the breakfast room was at its busiest.I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel or recommending to other budget conscious travellers.

Pleasant hotel with small rooms, but clean and quiet, friendly staff, welcoming drink, extensive breakfast buffet (regularly refreshed), hotel offers 4 parking spaces (11 euros per day) and only 10-15 minutes to the old city center (alt stadt). Would no doubt come back here next time.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view, otherwise you get a room in the lower building at the back

The Monopol is a convenient, cheap, clean and friendly hotel close to all amenities. The rooms are small but very clean and the included breakfast is an excellent start to the day. The staff without exception were very helpfull and pleasant. This hotel is not the Hilton so dont expect it, what you can expect is excellent value for your money and our party of 7 without exception, would use this hotel again.

This hotel was very odd, when I arrived from the front it looked like a cheap greasy-spoon cafe crossed with a charity shop. The large front windows overlook what must have been the 'restaurant/dining area. It was furnished with cheap plastic chairs and plastic looking table cloths.
The reception area was cluttered with biscuits, sweets and teas to purchase.
The staff seemed nice however when I arrived there was a guy checking out but the woman said he was booked in for another night and would have to charge his card as he had asked to extend his stay another night. He explained that he was with a friend (2 rooms) and his friend had extended because he had lost his passport but he wasn't staying. It appears that the hotel extended the reservation for both rooms and they would not cancel this gentlemans booking and made him pay for what appeared to be the hotels mistake.

The rooms were fairly small and nothing special about them. They were clean and comfortable though.

Just looking back at the photos of the hotel on here and where I booked it and you really would think this was a different hotel than the one I stayed in last night.

The hotel is conveniently located, about 5min walk from the main train station and about 5min walk into the central part of Dusseldorf.

Overall it wasn't too bad considering how much I paid, for around £40-50 sterling per night it's acceptable but any more then I'd consider staying elsewhere.

This hotel is in a good location, easy walking distance to the various shopping districts and restaurants and the station. Our room was a good size and included a desk and chair which was a bonus as my husband was working in Dusseldorf. Everything was very clean including the bathroom. Breakfast was more than adequate with plenty of choice. My only complaint with this hotel is that there is no tea/coffee making in the room, you have to boil a kettle in the foyer and make your tea in a cardboard takeaway cup. We were paying almost $400/night because we were there at the time of the K-fair, so I think at that price we should have been able to make a cup of tea in a china cup in our room.
