Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Düsseldorf

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in a really good location, the tram stops straight outside and its only four stops to the altstadt or you can walk it in about 40 minutes. Sadly when we were there the spa was not very relaxing as it was really busy and noisy so we didn't stay for very long! The rooms were clean and well equipped but far too hot! We had to keep the windows open all the time because the air con didn't seem to work. We didn't go for the breakfast option as we thought that 26 euros per person was ridiculously expensive. Overall a really nice hotel.

Stayed here on a business Trip. The hotel was very convenient for me, as it is right across the road from a metro stop. Good rooms, although a little small in size. Clean. Amazing breakfast spread. Good Service.

We have patronised Radisson Arnold plaza Düsseldorf since 2008. Held many meetings. Rooms are standard. Breakfast sumptuous. Chefs attentive and ambience in restaurants very good. Hotel has its own herb garden. They need to put rugs in rooms in winter cold. 10 minutes from airport next to Rhine river. Enjoy walks and see owners exercising their dogs. Cab stand nearby and shops are accessible by trams. Stay here while visiting Düsseldorf.

I stayed at RB Dusseldorf for 2.5 weeks this November for work. The hotel was recommended on account of its proximity to numerous restaurants and within the general vicinity of Old Town and other attractions. This was completely appropriate. The hotel is overall average. A stay of 2.5 weeks allows one to get a good feel of the amenities and service, from a quality and consistency point of view. This was a business trip with a team. Therefore, comfort and convenience were topmost on the agenda. From this point of view the hotel is just OK. My colleague and I got there at 10 AM in the morning after a long and tiring journey from the US. We had specially requested for early check-in, which apparently the hotel had agreed to. When we got there, we were curtly told that there will be no early check-in. So we had to kill time till 3 PM. After an overpriced breakfast, we found enough to do in the city so that we were able to pass time till we finally got checked in. The room was clean, and functional. Wi-Fi was free. All good. However, in the second week, my door malfunctioned and the key stopped working. This was not a case of remagnetizing the card; this was a full-on malfunction of the entire door mechanism. Moreover, I discovered this on a late Saturday night, when the Reception was manned by one individual. When I went down for the third time to have my key card "remagnetized," the attendant at the Reception was (finally!) convinced that I may have a point on something else being the source of the problem. They finally came up with me and experienced exactly the same issue. They were flustered and at a loss to proceed. Luckily, they found one of their colleagues, who was in the hotel on her time off, and requested her to look into the problem. She was gracious enough to resolve the problem in her time off. The entire process of resolution, which involved removing the handle, reprogramming it, and affixing it anew took around one hour. Another interesting quirk: One is provided with two key cards at the time of check in, one for the wall slot and one to have as the actual key. On at least 4-5 days of my stay, Housekeeping would take away the slot key, for reasons unknown. This was experienced by many of my colleagues. We actually had Reception note this down with room numbers. The practice continued. Breakfast in the main dining facility was OK. In my opinion, the dining room was constantly understaffed and this led to frequent delays on orders from the kitchen. For a business traveller, this is a major inconvenience. I recommend staying away from the pancakes - they are leathery and very un-pancake like. What was disappointing, yet somewhat amusing, was that by the end of the first week, the hotel (a global chain), ran out of maple syrup. It was NEVER replenished for the rest of the time we were there, despite requests. Clearly kitchen inventory taking has a gap. I also used the restaurant for a few dinners. The menu is reasonable and the burgers on it are acceptable. Similar to the pancakes, I recommend staying away from the red curry chicken, because, its simply not a red curry. It is bland, with the wrong vegetable mix in the curry. This may be the hotel's take on red curry, and its a complete failure. Again, the restaurant was understaffed most of times I visited. The positives of the hotel are indeed, its location and accessibility. It is within walking distance of numerous restaurants, which I recommend must be used on account of the average quality of the hotel's restaurant. Taxis are always available outside. I needed an email copy of my bill once I returned and that was provided promptly. This is the third RB I have stayed at (Dubai, Lucerne, Dusseldorf). I would rank it solidly as the second after Dubai. RB Lucerne was terrible, and to be avoided if possible.

Excellent hotel - good, clean, spacious rooms - excellent roomservice - good service - volimunous and excellent breakfast. A lot of parkplaces, inside and outside. Good situated for boattrips. to recommended

Many things in the hotel didn’t work...... We had to use the service elevator because the one for guests didn’t work. The tv provider had problems so no televisions in the rooms that worked. The lights in the room were only all on or all off. So just a small bed light was not possible. Also with turning off the light the electricity pluggs seem to shut down so no possibility to charge you’re phone in the night! Breakfast is a bit busy and cramped and the extractor hood didn’t seem to work or couldn’t handle the backing of the eggs on the grill. Very smelly. Coffee in the room was nice, the beds comfortable, wifi strong and the shower good.

The location is good, near the river and the Altstadt. The renovation they made is good in terms of modernity, cleaness and layout of the room, also the breakfast is goog but expensive. But the bed is too small for 2, i think smsller than queen size, the concierge has no idea of guidance and gave us wrong instructions twice and the had the tv system down during our stay with no idea of when will be repaired and no compensation for that. I will repeat because the location but they will make efforts to improve the service quality.

I stayed here due to some better experience i had 4 years back when i came for Glassprint 2013 this time too i stayed for same reason. But experience was disastrous. Rooms were good House keeping people are lazy and terrible Especially Lady named NINA. last time i was in economical class room i was told guest staying in Business class room gets all services like dental kits slippers etc. This time i chose to stay in business class room but unfortunately i still have to ask for things everytime. House keeping is most terrible. For all those who are reading this review and going to stay in this hotel please stay away from house keeping lady named NINA she blabbers a lot and even back answers her tone is rude and she doesn't hesitate to call you poor. This happened when i asked for slipper she straight away called me you are poor. On complaining about her another lady Miriam was defending her saying she never meant it she is friendly so you can conclude this is friendliness of their staff. You are offered drink so that you dont complain about anyone. She was defended so much saying that she is very old employee etc etc as if she can do anything she wants. Pathetic experience. i am planning for other hotel on my next stay in Dusseldorf for sure as the hotel people bluntly say its your choice wherever you go but they would not take any action against their employee. Good unity bad for guest staying here.

Great modern hotel in excellent location for where I needed to be. Friendly attentive staff, good choice at breakfast and plenty of places to eat nreaby. €170 a night and if I dare say it, good value, but then I wasn't paying for it myself. 10 mins form airport.

I liked the hotel, except for the non-smoking thing. I enjoyed the restaurant and the food too and the staff was really kind both at the reception and the restaurant. And you get back from the city center within 5-7 minutes with a taxi.
