"Good hotel and location"
Good location, being near to both the old town and a short walk to Konigsallee, the main shopping area. Situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood next to a nice park, popular with joggers and cyclists the rooms are well equipped and staff efficient and friendly. Would definitely stay here again although hotel seems rather popular.
"Best Blend of Conference Convenience and Altstadt Proximity"
I recently stayed 6 nights at the Melia Dusseldorf hotel to attend a large trade conference held at the Dusseldorf Messe. This was actually my first ever stay in a Melia property. I was very impressed. Staying in Dusseldorf for this annual business event always requires a trade off between convenience getting to the show versus proximity for you and your clients to be near the entertainment options of Old Town at night. You want to be close...but not too close to the wonderful but exuberant atmosphere in Altstadt. The Melia is the absolute perfect balance of the two needs. The hotel, which is very contemporary, is located on the western edge of a park which sits between the Old Town and neighborhoods to the north/east. As such the hotel is in a very quiet area that is quite residential as it faces the park. However, by way of a very short, and quite pretty path which transects the park, you can get in to the northern quadrant of the Old Town in about a 10 minute walk. If you don't want to go to old town there are at least a dozen decent small restaurants within three-four blocks of the hotel in the other direction away from Old Town. These included Portofino, a terrific Italian restaurant 300 meters from the hotel front door, and Schwan's, about 4 blocks north. On the flip side, the UBahn train station which runs right into the Dusseldorf Messe is immediately behind the hotel, and the U78 and U79 trains (which run about every 5 minutes) are direct shots. So you are literally 2 minutes from the Nordstrasse station that connects to the entire wonderful Dusseldorf public transport system. Some of the cities' other wonderful hotels will require you to transfer from one train to another to get the conference halls. This is a no-brain straight shot, no transfer. There is a Kamp's bakery just outside the Nordstrasse station entrance so you can get coffee and a wide selection of breakfast pastries (including a great ham and cheese croissant which was a breakfast in and of itself) without paying for the fairly overpriced hotel breakfast (28 Euros). The hotel itself is modern, and has a helpful staff with great English skills, and a terrific bar/restaurant. Truth in advertising: I never had a full, sit down meal there, but ate in the bar several times and it was reasonable and very good. They make a grilled turkey club about the size of Rhode Island. There is a separate semi-private bar available for meetings and small events. Rooms are good sized, with walk in shower, large bath, platform bed (queen) with mini-bar, televisions, etc. Small desk area where you can sit and work while enjoying free wifi. (which was blazingly fast). Good but limited storage. Very attractive decor with wonderful total blackout curtains to help the jet lagged cope. My only complaint is they only had down pillows, and I prefer a firmer pillow approach. Exercise room was small but kept up well, and they offer both sauna, and steam in the spa. Two stair steppers, two running machines, and several weight training options. The hotel had a few bikes for rent if you wanted to get your exercise outside. The city seems to be reasonably well "bike path-ed" on all sidewalks and streets, although I'm not sure I'd feel totally comfortable doing all my riding on just city streets. Every German I ever met thinks that they are Michael Schumacher and drives in town as if to prove the point. There are, however, several parkway, and river-side bike paths that you can get to directly from the hotel; through the park to the river-walk; which would make your concern about biking on the city streets a lot lower. I've been going to this particular conference for over a half dozen years, and have stayed in many different locations, and paid much higher prices. This was, by far, the best location of any I've stayed at so far. Because it was such a nice balance of business and after-hour entertainment. Would go back without hesitation.
"Hotel looks great, but a somewhat unimpressive stay"
We are a young professional couple in our 30s visiting Dusseldolf for the first time in August. We stayed at the Melia for two nights, from Monday to Wednesday. Overall it was a decent stay, but a few small things that made it a less than impressive experience for a five-star hotel. The room was reasonably quite spacious (lots of space to lay out luggage), and the décor/reno was pretty standard and modern. The bed/pillow were comfortable. The bathroom was of decent size and well designed. Our room looked out to the park which was quite nice. Overall, a comfortable and function space. However, there was constantly sewage smell in the bathroom from the shower drain, which was VERY unpleasant. The staff came and spayed freshener around and it covered the smell for short time, but soon it came back. They said they had maintenance staff visit while we were out, but it was not resolved, so the smell basically stayed throughout our stay. The wifi of in the room was intermittent on the first day, and was completely out on the second/third day. The ambiance of the hotel was sleek and modern. The hallways and lobby are well decorated. The front desk staff were very generally friendly, though not always efficient and helpful. Our room were tidied every day. Location-wise, it was just a short walk through Park Hofgarten, which is quite nice, though a bit dark at night. It was walking distance to many of the key attractions. Subway and tram stations were both quite nearby, and we used both a fair bit. We found the location quite convenient.
Nice room on top floor. Asked for a late check out having checked in at 11pm. Couldn't get a late check out because it didn't work for the hours housekeeping worked. So sorry to have put the hotel staff out, I'm merely a guest paying top notch for one of their top rooms. Maybe try somewhere else next time in Duesseldorf. And no recognition of Melia status. Sorry, we did get free WiFi. Gracias.
"Business trip stay"
I had reviewed this hotel previously on my first stay. Since I have stayed in this hotel quite often for work, I realized that there are a couple things I would like to share. Though this hotel is clean, modern, and is at a great location, some of the amenities and customer service are lacking. The price of this 4 stars hotel is at mid-range and above, I am very surprise that there were no tea, coffee or mug/tea cup, kettle in a my room. I can only find a wine glass. So I called the front desk to ask for some tea bags and a tea cup in the evening, their reply was because my room was a standard room and it’s not included. Paying over €150 per night, I was surprise they can’t even cater such small service. In my first stay, perhaps I stayed in a premium double room, I could find tea and tea cups set in my room but no kettle, so I asked for a kettle from the front desk. When I looked at the kettle, I could see the white precipitate inside in which is probably caused by hard water or was not cleaned properly. My colleague also had the same experience that she can’t use the kettle from the room service. I am sure many travelers don’t care about such small details. However, I am surprise something that basic can’t be accommodated as a 4 stars hotel. The last thing is the confusion from the billing, their final bill just does not match with the price I had on my reservation, so just be aware to check the bill when you check out. The reception was trying to explain, but I could not fully understand his explanation.
