My experience of stay

I stayed at this hotel during October 2017 with my family. For our 8-year-old son, they arranged a sofa bed and there was a proper mattress on the sofa bed-frame. That was quite comfortable. The double bed was comfy but too high for me. I literally have to climb on it. 😀 The bathroom was somewhat compact but clean. Toiletries and towels were included. The bathroom had a glass door! That was like a surprise for me. I don’t know why someone will prefer a glass door to the bathroom or is it that only me finding it weird? Would you like to have it in your hotel room?

Breakfast was of continental type buffet, pretty normal. The only downside was that they have to refill more frequently. Myself, including many other, often had to ask the staff to refill it. Other than this, everything was good.

Staff was co-operative, attentive and polite. I noticed they have friendly relations with the co-workers as well.

The overall ambiance of the hotel was warm, pleasant and comfortable. During our stay, there were mixed customers – families with kids, senior couples and some businessmen also. All seemed to be happy being there.


They have 2 types of pillows- soft and firm. You can choose as per your comfort. This is true for all Holiday Inn hotels, I guess.


Holiday Inn Express Düsseldorf–City can be a perfect choice for solo or family travelers. Its location is a bit away from tourist sites but not too away that you have to waste time in commuting. Cost wise, it is worth of what we pay.

I found everything nice and good about this hotel except the glass door for the bathroom. Yes, I just can not go away with that.
