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.
