A rarity in Dusseldorf, this small historic hotel is housed in a classic villa; just a few steps off the beaten path, the 27 conservatively-decorated rooms are not far from the heart of the action, even if the tranquility of the setting makes you feel like you’ve stepped away from it all. The friendly atmosphere and personalized service are a breath of fresh air in a neighborhood that can make you feel lost in a crowd.
Neighborhood: The Old Town is the place where everyone wants to be -- pedestrian-only streets, the world’s longest bar, centuries-old architecture. With cobblestone streets and narrow alleys, it doesn’t get more quintessentially European.
Kunst im Tunnel: For the latest in local art in a unique underground space.
Pardo Bar: For the discerning drinker, a bar inside the K21 Contemporary Art Museum.
Brauhaus Zum Schiffchen: For fresh Altbier and the best in brewhouse cuisine.
Time Out tip: Every room here is unique; ask for one on the top floor for something sunnier and more spacious.
