Rated as one of the top hotels in Dusseldorf, we knew that our stay at the Breidenbacher Hof (a Capella hotel) was going to be a great experience and it was … As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by a very friendly, yet not too formal, bellman. He kindly asked my name and guided me to the reception. Check-in was very efficient and we did get some clear information about the hotel such as the free non alcoholic drinks during the day in the guests “dining room”, etc. Oh, I do need to mention this: no “staff” here, they call it “personal assistants”, very nice touch and very personal approach. We also received a map of the city and were surprised by how central this hotel is located. The upscale shops are just a few steps away and we walked to the old city center in about 10 minutes. The lobby area is spectacular with a stunning staircase and cosy luxurious seating areas.
We stayed in a very spacious deluxe room and absolutely loved it! As you enter the room, you will notice the high quality decoration. To be honest, it was one of the nicest 5 star hotel rooms I have every seen. After a full day of shopping and sightseeing, there is no better place than relaxing in those cozy couches. The bedroom is very large and has very soft beds with plenty of pillows to choose from. The bathroom has a bathtub and separate shower, single sink and a toilet. Bathrobes, an iPod-dock and espresso machine are there for your comfort. Even the minibar with soft drinks is included in the rate. There are touch panels from which you can control drapes, lighting, etc.
It would be very difficult to get bored at the Breidenbacher Hof as it offers a fully equipped hotel gym and a luxurious spa area. We tried everything: the indoor pool, traditional sauna and steam room. The place is very relaxing, beautifully decorated and impeccably clean.
At night, we had diner at the Lobby Lounge and you should definitely try their traditional “Currywurst” J You’ll love it!
The next morning we were able to try out the other restaurant, the Brasserie 1806. Again, very classy! Breakfast was of a very high quality and offered a good variety of hot and cold items. There were several options: buffet, à la carte or both. We tried both and did not regret it. From the delicious latte macchiato to the freshly made apple pie… Once again, one of the best buffets I have ever seen! I loved every single bite and sip.
If you are looking for an upscale hotel in a great spot, do not hesitate to stay at the Breidenbacher Hof. It is a true 5 star hotel where you will be treated as a star!
