me and all hotel düsseldorf
Time Out says
A quirky hotel with Far East-influenced design and a top-notch bar in vibrant “Little Tokyo,” home to the city’s best ramen and sushi joints
Sliding wood walls, paper lanterns and waving cat figurines add an Asian-inspired touch to the 177 rooms of this hotel—a nod to its location in the heart of the Japan Quarter. Bamboo-patterned glass panels decorate walk-in rainforest showers in the generously sized bathrooms, which feature large windows overlooking the city. The Far East theme continues throughout the hotel, from the anime murals in the lobby and courtyard to the deep-red walls and oriental lamps gracing the sleek 11th-floor lounge and restaurant. In addition to the nicely kitted-out gym, the stairwell features a “vertical parcours” fitness route up 11 flights of stairs.
Neighborhood: The lively Japan Quarter is packed with great restaurants—ramen shops, sushi bars and Japanese bakeries—as well as Asian supermarkets and bookstores. It’s within walking distance of Altstadt and the posh shopping street Königsallee.
Kikaku: For excellent sushi in a simple, no-frills space that’s been around for more than 40 years
Altstadt: For drinking and partying in the bar- and pub-filled streets
Hofgarten: For a peaceful stroll in the city’s answer to Central Park
Time Out tip: The lounge hosts regular live concerts on Saturdays and every Thursday, a DJ spins during “after work” drinks, starting at 6 pm.
