Stayed here with a group on business. For the price, this is a clean, minimalist hotel. Having stayed at other hotels in this price point across Germany and the UK, this is actually at the nicer end of the spectrum. There is a full bar and restaurant on premises. Everything during my stay worked and was as expected. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. A steam iron and ironing board were available. So, nothing bad to say - at this price point. The food is fine - not gourmet - but fine. However, on my return for business, I will stay at a city-center hotel in Dusseldorf for the small increase in price.
The things I missed included air conditioning. You have to keep your room window open to moderate the temperature and the traffic noise - all night long - is insufferable. The bed is rock hard. The one pillow on the bed was not adequate to support my head. With my head touching the headboard, my feet hung off the end of the bed and were just two feet from the opposite wall. The wifi only worked in the bathroom and right next to the hall. The room was very small, even by German standards. The elevator in the building was not operable during my stay. The one bath towel provided was thin and scratchy like sandpaper. With the window open, the smell of cigarette smoke (I'm assuming from another guest smoking out of their window) kept getting into the room. So, at the price point, I guess these are really nit picking considerations. However, as a jet-lagged business traveler that spends 30%+ of his time on the road, this property just did not cut it. If you can't sleep, its just not worth the stay at any price.
