My husband and I are regular visitors to Düsseldorf, and usually stay at one of the Ibis hotels, but I am always on the lookout for an alternative. I found a good rate for the Friends Hotel, and decided to give it a go.

The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the hauptbahnoff. It is on a very busy road, but you can't hear that once you are inside the hotel.

The reception is on the first floor, so there's not much to see when you walk in at street level. The receptionist checked me in quickly, and was happy to offer assistance.

The room was a good size. There was plenty of room to move around. There was a flat screen TV in the room, and free wi-fi (you will need to contact the front desk for a code). There was also a little terrace area at the front (albeit enclosed) which looked out onto the busy street below. And who doesn't love a packet of Haribo on the pillow?

The bathroom was not very big, but the shower was good enough. My only gripe was that there was no shelf to put toiletries.

I would be happy to stay at this hotel again.

My first impression of the hotel wasnt that good, looking at the exterior and the surroundings, you wouldn't expect to find such amazing hotel.
After being buzzed in (you have to ring the doorbell first before you can enter the hotel) you'll find a staircase that leads to the first floor thus the reception. It looks really cozy and gave me kind of a relieved feeling to know that this hotel is actually really nice. plus, the staffs are super friendly and helpful.
My amazement continues when I entered the room 403, with a name "neo baroc". It was such a stylish room, adequate in size, with all necessary facilities. I really did not feel like staying in a 3 star property despite the fact that the building is kinda small.
I had such a pleasant stay at Friends and I highly recommend all tourist who visit Düsseldorf to stay here!

This clean and cosy hotel near trailway station was excellent choice for our trip to Dusseldorf. We stayed here for 5 nights and this hotel was worth value. The staff was very friendly and humoresque. Only the noise outside the street was little bit annoying. we had to keep windows open because of the heat outside (and inside). Breakfast was really superior and tasty, I would rank it maybe the best I have ever got for breakfast. There were many oriental restaurants aside/nearby, butunfortunately they were closed in the evenings we tried to get in. Of course, there were pasta/pizza places and döner places just around the corner and the prices were really reasonable. The shop downstairs really helped us to pick up things during the days.

This was a business trip, so we did not have really time to search around places - unfortunately.

I stayed here in January 2011. The hotel does not have main ground floor frontage and is located above several shops. From the exterior it appears as a non descript 1960’s office block, and could be easily missed. The reception is on the first floor and is decorated in a modern contemporary style. The hotel is located a few minutes away from the main train station is a good central location. The room was modern with plush fixtures and furnishings. The rooms appeared to be themed, with ours covered in Vogue pictures. Only complaint / downside of the hotel that there is no main bar area/ public areas. It very much felt like a room only establishment although breakfast is on offer at a cost. The price we paid was ok, and value for money I think for Düsseldorf? If I was staying in Düsseldorf again I probably would try another hotel, not to say I had a bad experience here.

I had to stay in Dusseldorf during my latest full travel week as destination no. 3.
"Friends" looks nice from the pictures and is a short walk only from the main train station.
Coming in by airberlin from Zurich and the suburban train from the airport.
Turn left from the main exit to the city and walk some 5 to 10 minutes along not the nicest area, ok it´s the main train station like everywhere else, too.
There is a "Kaisers" supermarket next door and also a couple of fast food restaurants.
That´s what I call convenient. And when you like to visit the old town for some party, it´s simply also in walking distance.
A nice welcome in the evening from the young male agent at check-in.
Level 5 from 6 for me as top floor requested, ok so far.
It´s a refurbished old building but anyway
the room clean and with the right size for me on the short stay.
Modern style furniture, the bathroom a bit from the smaller side, but also ok.
A good nights sleet, no noise, with a view from my room.
Breakfast was included in the fare, 80.00 Euro´s, acceptable for Dusseldorf and was nice, buffet style. Also no time during check out.
Definitely a recommendable place in walking distance to public transport and the old town.
Well, the downsides?. Mainly the area around the main train station, but that´s not the hotels fault.

I used this hotel when I had to find reasonably priced accommodation in central Dusseldorf when attending a business show at the Messe exhibition centre.

After a 10 minute walk from the central station in an OK area the entrance did not look promising - however upstairs there was a contemporary reception and small lounge/breakfast room. My room also had a seperate office. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was very good. Free internet worked but a bit slow
