Spending two nights in Düsseldorf in mid-September 2021 (yes, days away!). Any recommendations for me and my husband? We prefer near or in the Old Town area. Thank you.
We had our trip to Germany this month cancelled by a flight issue. We were going to stay one night in Düsseldorf near the Hauptbanhof at our favorite chain hotel, Motel One, Uber stylish 😊
I've flown into Düsseldorf, but I have never stayed there overnight. I am, however, a big fan of the Motel One chain, too. I stayed in one last night in Frankfurt. Small, simple rooms with a dash of design flare. The ground-floor common area is always super stylish.
2017 is a lifetime ago, but I stayed a few nights at Derag Livinghotel De Medici. It's a gut-renovated mansion, kind of low-end luxury. I liked it a lot, although it's not the cheapest place in town. Note that there is another Derag in Duesseldorf that has lower reviews.
The De Medici is right across the street from a major art museum, and I walked to the old town several times. It's also an even easy walk to Brauerei Im Füchschen, a superb dinner:
It's true that not all of Dusseldorf is "walkable", but you don't have to be right in the old town. If you don't have air conditioning in the summer, I'd prefer a quieter location! I only took the subway twice, to go to the Botanical Garden, and to go to the Kunstakademie and nearby (older art) museum.
