Dusseldorf Hotels and Accommodation
(Dusseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany)
Most visitors staying in Dusseldorf will recognise that a large proportion of all the city's hotels do tend to be geared up to meet the needs of business travellers, and therefore lodging prices can be relatively high during the week, even if you are looking for accommodation in the city suburbs.
For the cheapest hotels in Dusseldorf, try the Friedichstadt neighbourhood, which lies on the southerly outskirts of the city centre, although for the best selection, look to the business district, between both the Altstadt and also the Hauptbahnhof (train station).
During the months when major trade shows take place around Dusseldorf, accommodation prices are quickly raised to take advantage of the increased demand. Hotel prices in the city can be affected when trade fairs and conferences take place at other Germany cities within reach of Dusseldorf, including both Essen and Cologne
However, when the many business travellers leave the city each week, tourists can take advantage of the cheap weekend rates on offer at many of Dusseldorf's hotels. Also, outside of the main trade fair times, summer accommodation is also reasonably priced. If you are finding it difficult to locate available lodging and have chosen not to book ahead, Dusseldorf's tourist office will be able to help, although they will only check for rooms amongst their partner hotels.
Where to Stay
Many of the most luxurious hotels in Dusseldorf are to be found around the city centre and in particular, along the stylish Königsallee (Ko Boulevard), amongst the many shops and eateries. Nearby the historic Old Town area, otherwise known as the Altstadt, is home to plenty of period character and charm with hotels to match. Hotels in the Altstadt district of Dusseldorf have the advantage of being within the heart of the action and just a short walk away from some of the best restaurants and bars.
Further lodging options and hotels in Dusseldorf lie next to the main train station (Hauptbahnhof) within the Innenstadt, around the nearby Rhein-Ruhr Airport, and on the outskirts of the city, overlooking areas of the surrounding countryside.
