We recently went to Düsseldorf (West Germany) for a business trip. Having lived in Cologne for many years, which is just 30 minutes away from Düsseldorf, I spent a fair amount of time in this chique city and always enjoy being back here.
When I heard that 25 Hours Hotels just opened a new hotel in Düsseldorf the decision where to stay was very easy. The hotels theme is "French". You might ask yourself, what has French to do with Düsseldorf? In fact the whole neighbourhood in which the hotel is located is called "Le Quartier Central". It's a mainly newly developed residential area with beautiful homes and many cute and local cafes and restaurants around. Yet it is very close to the city center and also the business attractions (trade fair, airport and many headquarters) of the city. Walking to the Königsalle, or "Kö" as the locals are calling it takes about 15 minutes.
As expected from a 25 Hours Hotel, the moment you enter you get mesmerised by all the charming details. This time it was French flair everywhere. I already got to know the 25 Hours in Hamburg, which I loved but being a huge fan of Paris and parisian cafes, this easily became my favorite. Make sure to enjoy a coffee and croissant at "Cafe La Tour".
The building has 17 floors with a 360 view over Düsseldorf. On the top two floors there is "The Paris Club" where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and even party on weekends.
Breakfast is served o the 16th floor and I can say the atmosphere is amazing. Loved everything about the decor. Breakfast buffet had many options including my all time favorite smashed avocado, which you usually never see in hotel buffets. Even oysters and champagne where part of the breakfast buffet, perfect for a cozy weekend brunch. The buffet is open until 10:30 am.
Now, let's speak about the most important part, our room. We had a corner room on the 12th floor which meant plenty of daylight and views over the city. The room was on the smaller side but never felt cramped or crowded. The French theme continues and the ensuite bathroom was goals, not to mention the dreamy bed.
As usual, the details gave it a cozy touch. We had a record player, a Freitag bag that we could borrow during our stay, a cuddle companion and a wireless speaker. One thing I missed was a coffee machine (you know me and my morning coffee addiction).
For the active among you there is a stunning gym room and a sauna with a great view as well. Even better, there is an awesome trail to go for a run just next to the hotel. As in all 25 Hours the free Mini car rental and Schindelhauer bike rental was also available in this location.
What can I say, I really love the different concepts of 25 Hours Hotels and am glad to see that they keep expanding to new cities and countries outside of Germany. You should really experience one of the many 25 Hours locations.
