Best Western Ambassador Hotel
Ranked #118 of 240 Hotels in Dusseldorf
Reviewed 23 February 2012

At first glance this looks like a dodgy hotel in a strange area behind the main train station, but once you arrive you will find one of the most unexpectedly pleasant places to stay! Breakfast - excellent. Staff - more than excellent. Wireless Internet - fast and free. Sure, it is not large, but the room is comfortable, there is a small desk to work at, and if you don't want to take the trains (which are close by, but far enough away that you don't hear any noise) there are many taxis right out front. For 50 Euros/night (including the breakfast), it was a perfect business hotel. I was extremely pleased!

Stay 3 nights during Boot Dusseldorf. I have chosen this hotel because they offered fair price while one where I usually stay was fully booked. I was a bit afraid of 3* ranking, but on the end hotel was good enough. Actually this is how 3* should be, much better that you find in Italy or France.
Positive sides are:
- location 200m form main train station which gives you aces to safe and well organized public transport in Dusseldorf
- 15 minutes walk or 2 underground station to Aldstad and famous shopping site Koningsalee
- Free and fast wireless in the room
- Good breakfast
- clean rooms

Negative sides::

- Hotel is bit outdated, rooms as well
- Elevator that fit 3 persons only and can be busy for longer time
- small bathrooms
- small breakfast room
- only 1 English channel on TV
- no bathroom set

Hotel is situated close to main train station in Dusseldorf. It takes about 3-4 minutes. It is also relativly close to city center. Rooms are small and little outdated. Parking is very small.There is a wifi in room.Good option for short stay.

I stay for two nights last December with my family. Good and clean rooms. We really enjoyed the breakfast. The quality and good variations of food. Good location as it is only minutes from train station.

The hotel is located close to the train station and on walking distance from the centre (15-20 mins). The neighbourhood is a bit gray, but doesn't feel unsafe.

We booked a double bedroom, which was fine for the price you pay. The room is not too big, bed was fine, sheets were clean and the bathroom a bit old but clean. We had a room on the street side of the hotel, which caused some noise of trains, cars and tram. No problem with the windows closed, only when opened.

Breakfast is your ordinary continental breakfast.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

Overall nothing to complain about for the money you pay, but nothing special either.

Let´s start with the few good things this hotel has to offer:
* The location - 3 minutes walking from the main station. Which is great if you arrive there late at night.
* Some of the staff - Were really helpful and tried thir best. Specially Sasha, a young morning receptionist.
* The breakfast (although the room is not big enough to accommodate every guest) is very complete.
Now all of the bad aspects starting from the beggining:
We were asked for a credit card number to guarantee of reservation ans 3 weeks before our arrival the amount of the full stay was taken! I was so appalled by their action that i sent them a very ungry email. I had to wait 3 days for an answer: "Our mistake. Please, sorry." and the money was sent back to the account. What a great start!
Obviously when we finally got there we were a little bit sceptical about what we were gonna find. But we were nicely welcomed by the night auditor. We paid for the whole stay and headed up to the room (409). Big mistake! When we got there there was a double room with a single sofa bed!And when i say single i mean coffin-like.We should have seen the room before paying and we shoould have never stay on that room, even if it was only for one night. But it was 2 am and we were so tired that we decided to complain the next morning.Which took centuries to arrive because i couldnt sleep at all in that thing!!I must have slept 3 hours!It was too narrow and way to hard on the lower back!Awful!Not even a child should have to sleep in there!
The next day i lost the whole morning because i slept till noon.And the rest of the day felt like a zombie.
That day Sasha gave me a single room (free of charge - 407) and that made a huge difference.
Even so rooms dont have heating system!Imagine that with negative temperatures!!Walls, ceilings and floors are way too thin!You can hear everything!
Night curtain from my bed was ripped and no one fixed it. Cleaning ladies dont really care if you have the DND on the door. They knock twice, try to make themselves heard and walk in anyway!
The whole decoration is old and needs urgent changes.
Its quite far from the old part of town (walking around 20 minutes) but you have the tram or bus that will take you there.
Dusseldorf is a cosy city, specially at xmas time! :) And just so you know there is hardely any control in the trams. So buy one ticket but only validate it if you the controler.
The prices are quit high in the city. So ladies dont expect to do much shopping if your on a budget holiday.
So my point is: although Ambassador is not a nightmare, im sure that for the price you are gonna pay you can do much better (i payed 170€ to sleep on that coffin...or may i say, not to sleep!)!

Room Tip: If you are three, please dont choose this hotel!And ask for high room. On the lower ones you´ll hear...

The hotel is in walking distance from the centre. Hygienic, good shower and comfortable beds. The area is a little bit dark surrounded by small Döner snackbars and some sex shops. To my opinion not a bad area. Enough choice for the breakfast. The parking lot is very small, it can be challenging to test your parking skills.
