Lindner Hotel BayArena

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was good and breakfast was Superb. In the stadium only disappointment was that can not pay with cash. For one time visitor not user friendly. Hotel itselle was just perfect. Location 20 min walk from train station. There is really no need for car.

Booked here for one night stay en route from vienna to amsterdam and wasn't disappointed. Chosen because of its close proximity to motorway. Lovely modern hotel, made to feel welcome at check in and bar staff very friendly. Room more than adequate, clean and comfortable bed. The bistro food was good and very reasonably priced as was the beer. Certainly recommend, good value for money and will stay again.

...all other hotels you go into suffer. This is the case for me after having spent a number of weeks (about 10 at this point, with 15 more scheduled) at BayArena Lindner Hotel. The Hotel is part of the Bundesliga Stadium of Bayer Leverkusen and thus spectacular for that reason only. To a football fan there is the added benefit of seeing some faces usually only seen on TV (this week I did see Sven Bender after a practice session in the bar area having a water...). The food is extremely good, the menu offers basic dishes (sure, you can ask for more fancy stuff) and these are ALWAYS TO THE POINT. I have had fish here during all the weeks of my stays and it was always good. This is one of the few German restaurants where you can actually order the way your beef should be prepared. Medium is Medium, Medium well is Medium Well and Medium Rare is just that. I have yet to eat a sub-superior meal here (no, no Michelin stars, just really well prepared and well tasting food in a relaxing and comforting atmosphere). The breakfast is also very good and to me well worth the €20,-. Admittedly: I use the Latte-glasses to get my juice and water (double the capacity) but please do me one favor: refrain from taking one of the 4 water bottles to your table exclusively - there will be 100-something people having breakfast that day - just stand up and get another glass of water if you need it - and using the larger glasses seems much less intrusive, I think! The Hotel layout is somewhat unique caused by the stadium location, and it was designed beautifully i.m.h.o.. The bar and restaurant are have a large free space above them (6 stories) giving the impression almost of being inside a large stadium itself. The staf at the bar add to the postive impression. They are extremely attentative, capable of handling "extra" requests with ease and very quick, even when understaffed due to a large group arriving without previous notice. The "main" hotel staff (reception, cleaning, etc.) are just the same and capable of reacting to just about any unusual request quickly and efficiently. To put it diferently: they put many a concierge in 5* hotels to shame! The rooms are the one area that could use brushing up when compared to service and staff quality. This is complaining against a very high level, mind you... The rooms are clean, well equipped and offer all amenities one could require. The suites/studios are very desirable since they offer more than twice the space and give the feeling of having a flat of your own as hotel room. The one thing I still struggle to understand is the difference between basic/economy, business and first class rooms!?!

I cannot say enough about the staff at this hotel. After some confusion about mayonnaise and wine and some cultural misunderstanding the staff were fantastic and literally could not do enough for you. Where on earth do you get a barman that is busy working with a full bar and takes the time to see that you glass is empty and by time you have taken the last drop, puts a complete refill in its place. Full of humour and service. The staff were frankly superb. I will be definitely stopping at this hotel again

This is a very nice hotel, it is attached to the Soccer (FOOTBALL) stadium, The food is good. If the temperature is very hot it is very nice to go back to a room with Air Conditioning. This hotel has a small but nice gym for working out in the mornings. Breakfast is included in most rooms.

I stayed for 5 nights for training at Bayer company. One lady in reception was rude and the other prepared the invoice irrespective of my request. She did not listen carefully even though she said ok, then did not prepared the invoice according to what I requested. Breakfast was fine but limited number of cheese. Restaurant and the guys there were good. Rooms were clean but there was no shampoo at the bathroom. When I was resting in my room (even though I put do not disturb label) one maintenance guy entered the room. Moreover, I when i came back earlier, a lady was cleaning the room even though "please do not clean the room" label. My room was untidy and did not need to tidy it since i put that label.Nothing inside the mini bar rather than a bottle of water. It was not free of charge. My college drunk 3 bottles while i did not any and we paid same money. To sum up i do not consider to stay there next time.

The hotel is neat and clean, also very secure. You have to have room key to activate the elevator. If you stay during their football season, you may watch the game. It's good stay and quick access to the train station. Good breakfast and nice view.

The room was very nice and comfortable. The location was very nice being next to the stadium and within a brisk walk to shopping and eating. They have free wifi but it is worth purchasing the high speed internet with the room.

Soundproof rooms and nice spaceous beds provide excellent sleep. Breakfast beats 5* hotel by variety of choice. Kids were delighted to find Movenpick ice-cream and us - smoked salmon tartar. We found this location as a nice but quite budget stay to to drive rented car and fly from Dusseldorf in the morning. Was perfect! The idea itself to place the hotel in the stadium was perfect - architect is great! Decided to come back here once to see the game. There was no family room or even interconnected rooms - had to book 2 rooms for the family oа 2 adults and 2 children. Stuff was so kind to let us in the panorama restaurant to make arena photos early in the morning.

We have stayed a single night at this hotel. Bayer Leverkusen 04 was playing an away match so it was a calm Saturday night. Beds, pillows and other facilities were among the best in an economy room. Windows and curtains provided perfect soundproofing and darkness when needed. Cleaning and tidyness was top shelf. Staff was pretty young yet very motivated. Breakfast was open buffet and was served in a long time interval. Which allowed us to enjoy various snacks with many coffee and hot chocolate options to taste. Leverkusen is a nice stop right in the middle of Köln/Bonn and Düsseldorf cities where you would have to pay more for accomodation as well as city tax which was not applied in Leverkusen. So for the budget watchers, the location makes sense itself. On our way back to Dusseldorf Airport we found it wonderful to walk down to the central station (Leverkusen Mitte) in 15 mins, covering most of the distance along a nice little river. It is worth to mention that there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel/stadium as well. What further facilitated our access to the airport was the direct train available from Leverkusen Mitte. Departing almost every half an hour, it only took 23 mins to reach Düsseldorf Airport. All in all we highly advise this top quality city hotel to anyone visiting this region.
