The hotel is basic and ten min walk from the central station. Location is very good. One of the things I was not happy with was that it is loud if your window is towards the street. I particularily asked for a room on the backyard but wrong kind of room wa asigned at first inspite of calling up and confirming 3 times! Breakfast was sufficient. In all good except the room confusion and not so friendly staff. However, one girl was friendly but she mentioned that she is usually at another hotel at most times. The wifi does not work well.
Hotel Antares is located in the city centre of Dusseldorf and more than covers your needs. The hotel is clean with a friendly professional staff (check in / out and breakfast) so whilst the hotel is priced at the budget level you receive a service equal to that of hotels far higher priced. The rooms are more than adequate and spotlessly clean with a good mattress and sufficient size. The hotel offers a lift so given that it is located on a main road it may be a good idea to get a room on the higher levels, 4 or 5, or at the rear of the building although on my stay, Saturday to Sunday, noise was not an issue at all. The breakfast is more than sufficiant and is of the standard Novum quality so for the Euro 7,00 eat all you can eat the standard/price ratio is great for a city centre. Outside facilities include trams and buses to the centre, both around 10 mins and costsing ca.Euro 3,00 each way although a walk into the city centre is very pleasant and takes around 25 minutes with the route taking you either direct along Corneliusstr. or the high end Koingsallee. In general a great budget city centre hotel which ticks all the standard cleanliness, friendly boxes.
Of course the fare was cheap so I wasn't expecting something extraordinary but I just wanted to have a clean basic room with a bed (not broken) -I got a single layer glass window because the second layer had been broken or taken away for some reasons. The reception didn't know about it. When it's the first thing I noticed when I entered the room because I could hear everything from the street like the window would have been opened. - the curtains on the window were not covering it fully until down... Weird... - the bed was broken, the mattress was cut on the side. So I slept on the extra bed which is not a real bed but a kinda of sofa with no real mattress and super hard. -the light above the real bed was not working. Even though the receptionist was nice and welcoming he couldn't give me another room or any other type of room because the hotel was fully booked on the type of room I booked... And not to mention that prior my arrival I got debited twice the price of the room. Once by the booking central and once by the hotel itself. But they fixed the problem straight away when I noticed it on my bank account and were very nice on the phone to help me to fix the problem. To me not pricy hotel doesn't mean that the minimum shouldn't be there. If you pay for a room (doesn't matter the price) with a bed and double glass layer window, then you should get it. These are the facts. Otherwise good location. Good price and welcoming personal.
Everyone that I came into contact at reception were very friendly and courteous. The room was very basic. Comfortable bed and decent shower as well as TV with lots of foreign language channels to chose your home language from. However thanks goodness for long, dark winter nights/morning because there was only half a curtain to cover the window with. It was also very noisy as the room faced onto the busy, main street below that seemed to attract emergency vehicles with sirens blaring as well as being on a main tram route..
I stayed in cologne for two nights and i had to pay 148 euros for a very bad hostel. When i saw a hotel in dusseldorf for 76 euros both nights i was prepared for the worst. But I was wrong, Hotel Antares is maybe not the prettiest hotel in dusseldorf but it is really worth to stay there for a cheap price. It would be specially good for people on a budget. Clean and private, basically all I needed.
My wish was to visit Cologne for the Christmas markets. Then I discovered that the main airport of the area is actually in Dusseldorf, Cologne hotels were close to capacity and expensive and found a bargain at this hotel which is fairly central. Nothing of the horrors other reviewers write about happened to me. The single room was big enough for one person, it was warm and clean, staff was friendly. The breakfast which is charged on top of room rate was so hearty it would keep me going till the evening. The lift was a little moody, but my room was on the 1st floor, so I had not much need for it. The room was a the back, next to the car park, thus away from the noisy main street traffic. Saturday night was busy in the car park, but quiet all other nights. Public transport serves the area well, trams, right rail and trains. Plenty of shops in the area. I'd definitely recommend it.
Each room in this hotel is a tiny, cramped and far too hot. Many windows were painted shut despite there being no fans or air cons. Staff wouldn't give us a fan either to compensate. Towels provided and rooms tidied each day. Not that he should but the receptionist didn't speak English but was keen to help. They didn't tell us that the hotel is locked after a certain time- we found out at 2am when we had to call and get given the code to get in the back. Awful wifi. Last resort.
One of the worst hotels I have ever had the misfortune to stay at. Certainly the nosiest room you could possibly imagine. In fairness I only last a few hours before I could take no more and left. The staff are completely unhelpful and the management could not care less. Seriously, if you are at a conference in Dusseldorf and no other rooms are available, then get a cardboard box and sleep on the street, it'll be much better than here.
I was about to write pretty positive review about the place, seeing how the room - while real flashback from the 80's - is clean and quite spacious enough, but when the staff barged in to my room THE THIRD F***** TIME while I was still in here (twice in the same day to clean, once to just check if it was cleaned) I honestly can't recommend this hole to anyone! If my damn key is NOT in the reception at 10 AM anyone with half a brain should understand that I must be in the room, most likely still sleeping from the travel to here. Or for any other possible reason. Not having the standard "DND/Please clean room" sign anywhere was the first red flag, but I just ignored it. The location is quite good, the room is quite good, the price was pretty much unbeatable at 180 EUR for 4 nights, but the whole damn ordeal makes me tell people to stay away!
I stayed here during Interpack fair and the prices were really high, but this hotel really don't justify 190E/night price. Room was clean but shabby looking. Nothing special. Bathroom average, clean. Location is ok, staff also. It's ok if you don't have better option, everything is ok, but nothing more than that. If the price is usual 30-50E than it's ok, but anything more than that is way overpaid for the experience.
