Hotel Review: Graf Adolf Apartments, Dusseldorf.

So, about this hotel…

The Graf Adolf offers 21 apartment style ‘rooms’ over six floors. The rooms are all non smoking. Pet friendly rooms available.

First Impressions?

The apartment building itself stands out for all the right reasons, the exterior is very smart and well branded, if a little confusing as you buzz reception to gain access to the building , and you don’t walk directly into the reception area. This is accessed by a flight of stairs.  Top marks for the huge vase of fresh flowers, fruit bowl and dish of sweets just inside the entrance though.

Official Rating?

3.5 stars.

Location, Location, Location.

Located within easy walking distance of the main train station and tourist information centre, from where visitors can pick up the HoHo tour bus. The hotel is also within reasonable walking distance of Düsseldorf’s main shopping areas, including the Konigs Allee, and the old town.

Best Thing About This Hotel?

The attention to detail. That begins on arrival with a warm welcome at reception where we were all offered drinks and my son was given pen and paper so he could doodle while I checked in ,and goes right through to the rooms where things like fresh flowers in the bathroom, ample storage with plenty of coat hangers and a laundry hamper for your used towels really show that someone has given a lot of thought to the small things that make for a feeling welcome and a happy stay.

In Room Comforts?

Complimentary bottled water and slippers for each guest. Fresh flowers, complimentary toiletries, decent hairdryer and ample towels in the bathroom. Well equipped kitchen area with fridge freezer and Nespresso coffee machine. Plenty of sockets for charging devices, using hair dryer etc. Rooms are open plan, incredibly spacious and beautifully light and airy.

Not for you if…

You like hotel stays that involve room service and making use of facilities. There is no gym, pool, spa etc although I’m sure reception could point you in the right direction for local services.

Value for money?

We paid €160 for a one night stay for four people in a luxury apartment. Very good considering the standard of lodgings, service and location.

Describe the place in three words?

Stylish, convenient and vibrant.

My six-year-old left his own review and declared the place to be ‘epic, brilliant , love it!’. High praise indeed.

Would I rebook this hotel?

Yes. With a limited choice of airport hotels at Düsseldorf International, this place is a great option for those travelling through the city as well as those wishing to stay and explore. The main rail station is just down the road for onward connections and getting to the airport, or reception staff can assist with transfers.

I booked the Graf Adolf apartments via Hotels.com . They also have their own website

  1. Thank you so much for this post Helen! I will write this down on my journal for future use. My family always need an apartment when traveling so that we can cook for our son with food allergies so this apartment would be perfect 🙂

    1. We have really enjoyed our ‘apart-hotel’ stays this year, I have a long list things I can’t or don’t eat so hotel styling with good kitchen facilities is a winner for us too. Thanks for stopping by, much appreciated!
