The Indian summer in northern Europe in October 2011 was just too good to pass up. Therefore, no alternative but to visit Dusseldorf in Germany’s industrial heartland! As this was a last minute trip, hotels in the centre of Dusseldorf were exorbitantly expensive, so alternatives had to be considered.
The NH City Nord was an excellent choice, a business hotel that offers reasonable weekend rates. Travel into the centre of Dusseldorf is easy as the tram stop at Derendorf station is two minutes walk away. For those worse for wear from a night on the tiles in the Aldstadt, a taxi ride back costs 10Euro.
Quality of the room was reasonable. I opted for a double but in practice this was two single beds pushed together, which I hadn't anticipated for a business hotel. As I asked for a quiet room, I was allocated a room at the rear of the hotel. While this didn't face the main road and tram line, it did face the parking garages. It wasn’t a 'room with a view' but as I had an undisturbed night’s sleep, I wasn’t too concerned. I didn’t have breakfast as I thought it was ridiculously overpriced, approximately 18Euro.
The positives, a mini bar in the room to store milk (purchased from the Lidl supermarket opposite) for teas, etc. This is always a bonus as it saves on buying refreshments out. Free Internet access is available in the hotel as well which was a bonus.
As for checking out, as other Trip Advisors contributors have noted, the Hotel Receptionist can be rather cold during this process but being Germany, it was gloriously efficient; I was even offered a choice of settlement currency. I should stress that the majority of staff I met were pleasant and helpful. So when I’m next in Dusseldorf, I will probably return to this hotel.
