Carathotel Düsseldorf City
Time Out says
A hyper-modern look with comfortable furnishings and a relaxing lobby for the ultimate shopping kings and queens to put their feet up
Housed in a renovated department store, the kid-friendly chain hotel has a hyper-modern decor that jazzes up the square layout. Box-spring beds are a standard—not the norm in Germany. The hotel fits the tagline of Germany’s favorite chocolates well: square, practical, good. And it’s got centralized heating and air conditioning to boot, a rarity in these parts.
Neighborhood: Down a side street amid Dusseldorf’s notorious shopping district, the Kö, the hotel is in the heart of the action. A stroll along the chestnut-tree-lined canals is a must-do, especially on Sundays when the high-end stores are closed and the streets no longer filled with Porsches and Bentleys.
Time Out tip: This place is so popular, they’re opening a second hotel in town—so if there’s no room at the inn, ask if you can get in at their partner hotel.
