After the dreadful 13 hours ride in a direct flight aircraft, the first thing most of us would like to do would be to check in into the hotel room. With the freezing weather and the sky was about to turn dark for nightfall, I was thankful 25 Hours Hotel Dusseldorf was about 5 mins walk from Wehrhahn Station.
The interior was pretty much German-French inspired with retro/vintage furnishings as well as the metal frames of Eiffel Tower. A large Christmas tree was set up and there were fresh flowers and trinkets on sale due to festive seasons. For those whom would love to chill, coffee and cakes are available at the lobby’s mini Café La Tour.
Checking in was smooth and finally, time to explore the room and unpack after attaining the free WIFI!
I was amazed upon entering the room as it was beautifully furnished. German-French vintage style with warm and large overhead lights, vintage posters hung on the walls, a vinyl record player and not forgetting the antique rotary phone which actually works when I tried calling the reception to request for more bottled water.
The bath cubicle was totally glass and am glad that soap and shampoo were provided. I just don’t get why the toilet bowl was apart from the sink though. The bathtub was located at the balcony which gives a splendid view as you soak. Unfortunately we were not allowed to soak during winter.
I would be spending my 3 nights in 25 Hours Hotel Dusseldorf before transiting at Franfurt to Strasbourg.
For the following few days, I had breakfast buffet at The Paris Club, the hotel’s restaurant and bar on the 16th floor with a breathtaking view. The spread was somewhat similar throughout, with croissants, au chocolat, smoked salmon, yogurt, eggs and sausages as my usual must have with juice. Raw oysters, wine and salami were the ones I avoided.
The gym and sauna room were accessible too and I only took a peep at its facilities but did not have time to use them. Didn’t have sufficient time to explore the hotel’s surroundings either, due to the freezing weather, and as most outlets tend to close early over the Christmas holiday.
Overall it was a really cosy 3 nights stay at 25 Hours Hotel Dusseldorf, just unfortunate that I did not get to use the balcony bathtub during winter. (Yes, the hotel’s booking clause did mentioned.) For a clearer view of the room, click here.
