“Perfect Location in Old Town Dusseldorf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Our friends in Dusseldorf made the arrangement score us at this hotel. The location was convenient to Kings Avenue, the Rhine Tower and Old Town and the water edge. The hotel was clean and comfortable. I usually judge hotel rooms by cleanliness and beds first, reception and food second. Cleanliness - I give 5 stars. Bed - I give 3 stars. Reception (staff) - I give 2.5 stars. Breakfast - I give 5 stars. this is how I determined 4. I would recommend for short stay due to bed only being of mediocre quality. But certainly a nice place. My husband and son thought I was a bit harsh and that beds werent bad but I'm the one reviewing... and I really like a comfy bed!

After living many years in Duesseldorf, we decided to stay in this charming looking hotel instead of an average one – also because of the location.
While I can imagine to recommend to others and come back myself, We were both nevertheless very disappointed about the room and service. While the check in was done in a professional and quick way, the check out was a desaster not only because we had to wait as the system/ PC stopped working and we had to let our friends wait, but also staying calm and quiet, the receptionist was totally stressed – and we were the only guests at this moment, very patiently waiting. Even the colleague who was apparenty more responsible for the breakfast room could not bring her down….it stressed me much more than the 10 min waiting for the PC to restart!
The breakfast was ok, with also some fresh fruits. On Sunday, at least there was somebidy friendly to ask if everything is ok and if coffee needed etc., while on Saturday, none of the used tables were cleaned or even one table done for 2 people- so we did ourselves. When the responsible finally started to clean towards the end of our breakfast, we escaped quickly as she was so hectical and loud that was a pain.
the room was very quiet and clean. I had somehow expected something with more charme- similar to the design of the hotel from outside and in entrance area. The towels are as such that they seemed more like in a simple Asian bed and breakfast, also the closet in the entrance is more 70’ies style… Also, I was disappointed that I had to leave our room unlocked as they couldn’t provide us with a 2nd key and my husband decided to have a long night out while pregnant in 6th month, i was returning well before midnight… Yes, the hotel is safe but….I really don’t feel comfortable or relaxed with a jnlocked door.
Overall: great location, bit overprized (130€/night) in comparison, quiet and clean (but simple/ rather aberage) room, and parking in the close public parking is 28€/ day.

If we hadn’t come with so high expectations due to traveling intensively over 10yrs to dozens of different hotels and also due to the charme expected inside, we would be maybe more positive and give 4* – we might give a try when coming back to Duesseldorf, let’s see!

Stayed a couple of nights here when attending a conference. Rooms are small by North American standards, but absolutely in line with European norms. The rooms are very clean (as you would expect in Germany), the free wifi is of an acceptable speed, staff is very attentive and the breakfasts are ample. From the hotel door you are in the middle of the Altstadt in a couple of minutes. There is little or no traffic around the hotel but you are surrounded by cobblestones, on which even pedestrians make noise. Across the alley is the City Museum, popular for school trips. Lighter sleepers might want to take note. Would definitely come back.

I have stayed here numerous times. The location is perfect for Dusseldorf Altstadt, close, but quiet. The rooms, though small, are clean, bright, airy and tastefully decorated. The beds are very comfortable, with a good reading light. There is a good choice at breakfast - cheeses, eggs, meats, fruit, bread, jams, juice and piping hot coffee. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful (they went above and beyond when I was taken ill and hospitalised 8 years ago).

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room if you are a non-smoker.

We have just spent 2 nights here whilst visiting the Christmas markets and old town area of Dusseldorf.
We caught a bus from the airport to the main railway station (no 721) which cost euro2.40. From the station it is a 15-20 min walk, although you could catch the underground which would put you about 7-8 mins walk away.
The hotel is situated in a pedestrianised area so it is very quiet, but only a couple of munites walk away from the town centre and the river.
The welcome at the hotel was very warm and our room was ready even though we arrived before 10am.
The room was spotlessly clean with an en-suite bathroom with shower (bath would have been nice). The pillows look very nice on the bed, but are not the most comfortable so we asked for 2 extra ones and that made things better.
Breakfast was practical with plenty of choice of breads, fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, cold meats, etc. The hot food was average, for the small number of guests it would probably be easier to cook eggs to order so that you don't have to have a hard fried egg that has been sitting in a container for 10-15 mins.
The overall attitude of the staff was excellent, all very friendly and willing to help, except for one particular evening staff member who could probably use some training in 'people-skills', she had a very strange attitude for someone working in a hotel and may well have been a school headmistress in a previous life!
In summary, this is a very clean, tidy hotel in an excellent location, nothing fancy, so if you want warm and full of character then this is not for you, but if you want practical, efficient and well priced that is not part of a large chain then this is the place.
If you are planning your stay to include a Sunday, then be aware that NO shops are open on a Sunday, the christmas markets and the restaurants are though.

If you are visiting the old town area of Dusseldorf, this is a hotel to strongly consider. It's one block off the river and about 1 block south of the last main street in Altstadt. The price is very good - 90 Euros as of this writing. It is not fancy, but it is clean, has a good breakfast of meats, cheeses, fruits, breads (very traditional) and the staff is extremely friendly and fluent in German, English, and other languages. Have stayed multiple times and have had nothing but good experience. The rooms are typical European - small, and the beds are double size, not queen.

Before booking any hotel I cross check travel guides, hotels.com, and then read reports on
Trip Advisor, at which point I am fairly confident of which hotel to choose.
Once again Trip Advisor comes up 'trumps'. Hotel Orangerie is the perfect choice of small hotel, full of character, and ideally situated down a quiet street on the edge of the old town and just a stone's throw from the River Rhein.
Everything about the hotel is appealing and my wife (a woman of impeccable taste - she married me ) was delighted with the room, the excellent service, and the superb breakfast.
Our room was light, spacious and spotlessly clean. The walk in shower was large enough to share, and there was wardrobe and drawer space aplenty. Also, for those travellors who no longer trust the banks, our room safe in Hotel Orangerie was the biggest and strongest ever provided by any hotel I have ever stayed in.
Breakfast is delightful. Beautifully presented, with an amazing selection of fresh fruit; there are cheeses, hams, eggs, different German breads, and really top class coffee served in a vacuum flask so that your coffee is served hot, and stays hot.
We stayed in Dusselforf 12th - 16th July during which time the rain fell in torrents every day.
A pity! We made the best of our time - visited Cologne, museums, the old town, and walked the banks of the Rhein viewing the barges and river boats from under an umbrella.
There is no shortage of good eating places in Dusseldorf - especially in the 'media/finance' area which is worth visiting for its de-luxe hotels and stunning architecture. However, an experienced visitor to Dusseldorf recommended 'Bistro Zicke' which by coincidence is 100 yards from Hotel Orangerie on Backerstrasse. Bistro Zicke is a popular restaurant and bar with a sizzling young friendly atmosphere, and the best freshly cooked bistro food I have tasted this year. Please - try it! You will not be disappointed.
In spite of the weather we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dusseldorf. It's an attractive City with a sense of purpose - confident in its chosen direction. During our 5 day visit we did not meet a single British visitor (hurray) although most Germans speak good English.
I can't vouch for the weather but I can recommend a trip to Dusseldorf staying at the Hotel Orangerie and dining in Bistro Zick.

Room Tip: Book by telephone and discuss your requirements.
