... Being used to all the travel comfort I got to experience in the past and having never stayed in a hostel dorm room in my entire life, this is going to be very interesting indeed! Another new experience will be the transformation from traveling in a dream team to becoming a female solo traveler. Although I like to refer to Christopher McCandless' wise words "happiness only real when shared", I am accepting this challenge of traveling alone. The thought that I have to put my life ...
... the statue we went and did some shopping picking up a lace Christmas ornament, chocolate tasting and lace looking. Then on our way to lunch i saw a strange game in town square. Young boys about 13-15 were hitting some sort of like rubber ball with a glove thing on their hand back and forth... It was almost like baseball, hot potato, ping pong, and racquetball all thrown together... I anyone has any clue what it is left me know ...
... up the felled ones. Had to clamber over lots of fallen trees on our walk through the woods. Atmosphere great on Friday night when Germany won their quarter final in the World Cup, against France. The street was blocked off at a couple of intersections and the young folk were having a great time after the match. Lots of broken glass, but no violence. Police kept a discrete eye on things. Everything was cleaned up by ...
... I just kept staring at him because I could not get over how similar they looked to each other. Well, we had a great rest of the flight and I started going crazy (of course) whenever I saw that we were coming in to Spain. We were slowly going down and I kept looking out the window and he looked out beside me. Then about 5 mins before we landed, without any kind of word he grabbed my face and kissed me and said "Welcome to Spain, I don't know if you plan on getting a boyfriend ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand City Hotel Dusseldorf Koenigsallee Düsseldorf
I am a frequent business traveller and usually stay at hotels from the Sheraton brand. This hotel was just not up to par.
Excellent Value for Money
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with a group of friends on a World Cup weekend break. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were good and clean and the free soft drinks from the mini bar was a nice touch. The buffet-style breakfast was excellent. Overall this is a superb value for money hotel close to the main shopping area and not too far from the Old Town.
Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of June in order to enjoy a short break exploring the city. We had asked for a non smoking quiet room and that is exactly what we got!
Although the room was not as big as I had expected it was ok; and the complimentary soft drinks (renewed each day) in the fridge and the tea/coffee making facilities were very welcome. The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Breakfast each morning was excellent with an extensive buffet. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is within walking distance of all the sights although we did buy a 24 hour travel pass for one of the days.
A very enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Haben unseren Aufenthalt hier wirklich genossen. Die Angestellten sind sehr freundlich und nett. Das Hotel liegt an einer Seitenstrasse, also ist es sehr ruhig, aber gleichzeitig ist es nicht weit zu Kneipen, Restaurants und Geschäften. Die Zimmer sind sehr komfortabel und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Maredo Steakhouse in der Nähe des Hotels können wir sehr empfehlen. Man kriegt was für sein Geld und die Angestellten sind sehr nett.
Die Steaks waren klasse. Wir haben auch in der Altstadt im O'Reillys gegessen. Das war auch sehr gut. In der Königsallee (Haupteinkaufszone) gibt es viele Strassencafes, Kneipen und Geschäfte. Obwohl es geregnet hat, haben wir unseren Aufenthalt in Düsseldorf sehr genossen und würden wieder im Four Points by Sheraton übernachten.
Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, very friendly and pleasant staff. Located on a side street, so very quiet yet close to bars, restaurants and shops, an ideal location. The rooms were very comfortable with nice little touches that made us feel very welcome. Can highly recommend the Maredo steak house just around the corner from the hotel. Very good value for money and nice staff. The steaks we had were excellent. We also ate at a pub called O'Reillly's in the Old Town, this was also very good Lots of pavement cafes and bars and shops galore in konigsallee, the main shopping area. Despite the rainy weather. we all enjoyed Dusseldorf and would definitely return to the Four Points At Sheraton hotel.
Good tourist Hotel
This is a good hotel especially for the tourist. Rooms are small but very clean & a free mineral mini-bar is provided which is replenished daily. Staff are very friendly & English speaking. The Buffet breakfast is very good with lots to choose from. The hotel is about 10 mins walk form the main train station, the Ko and Alstadt. The Mexican restaurant close by serves good food & can provide menu in English. If your German is not the best - best advised to bring along a phrase book to translate out whats on restaurant menus!
Although not far away from Dusseldorfs "Konigsallee" the vicinity is a little bit strange but probably not dangerous. However, the hotel is obviously well maintained although looking at the size of the rooms and how they are located, I believe that the building (or are these actually two buildings ?) is older than it appears. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and in modern style, amenities in the bathroom are from original Sheraton-Hotel-Brand. Great plus is the included buffet-breakfast. It's not luxury but great for a good start in the business-day. Great negative is the missing availability of WLAN/WIFI/High-Speed Internet access in each room. Make sure that you do not get a smoking-room or a room near the elevator. You get a great value for your money if room-size is not a major concern.
Happy with this hotel.
Just back from a 3 night stay in this hotel. Overall found it good value for money, with friendly staff and comfortable (if small) room. Breakfast buffet was excellent and I liked the extra touches in the guest rooms - free soft drinks in the minibar and tea and coffee making facilities. There is a small bar in the reception area, which also sells bar snacks. Luisenstrasse is a side street, so not much traffic noise.
Centrally located - about a 15 minute walk from the main train station and a bit further to the Altstadt.
Highly recommend the Uerige brewery - if you like alt bier!
Considering this is an economy location of the Starwood/Arabella Sheraton group, I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly reception, the tidiness, cleanliness and practicability of this accommodation. The room was small but had everything you need for a short stay. The bathroom was almost as large as the bedroom and was well appointed. Breakfast was of the usual first class Sheraton standard. It is a hotel garni, thus it has no restaurant but the tips I received from reception on restaurants in the neighbourhood were most valuable. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the central station and easily reachable by tram or taxi.
After a horrible start to our trip, we found the Hotel Four Points, Sheraton, Dusseldorf Central, to be warm, inviting and very comfortable. The room was extremely clean and bright with minibar (containing soft drinks and water - no alcohol). The en-suite consisted of electric shower, bath, basin and toilet.
