Location is good - easy walk to alstadt. The breakfast is very nice. There is a market opposite the hotel. Complimentary water bottle is good. The hotel staff were good and provided directions. The manager is never available to talk to. The bar area is nice and small - good to sit before going to the room. There is a train station to the right - few steps from the hotel. There are taxi's if you walk across the street to other side of the market. There is heater but never used it. I just slept for the night and stayed out most of the time.

The 6th floor room I stayed is a store room under stairs converted to hotel room. Paid couple of hundred dollars for it. The high price was a goof up by expedia and after spending 140 minutes in the lobby talking to expedia at 1 euro per min price. Not worth the money as I spent 400+ for one night including the price, international phone cost etc. This could have been resolved by the hotel very easily. Bathroom is very small - arms will hit the wall. The bathroom door is difficult to close so water may leak out of the shower. The room is good with a bed and TV. Only half the channels or basic channels will come. TV is a monitor on the table. If you put two suitcases on the floor in the room, then you won't be able to walk around.

It is good if you don't stay in the hotel if you use it for coming to sleep at night. I won't stay here at the price I paid. I don't think the hotel should rent this as a room but instead change it to storage. I will probably stay at other hotels and come in cab to old town.

Room Tip: Dont' choose room 605.

A very enjoyable three night stay at the Carathotel. The staff were all pleasant but I would particularly mention the young female receptionist wearing spectacles (apologies for not getting your name) who was delightful, knowledgable and spoke better English than most native speakers. The hotel is well situated close to the Altstadt and an easy stroll from the Rheinufer. However it is on a busy street opposite a market and we were glad that we had spent a little extra for a room at the back overlooking the inner courtyard. The room itself was maybe a little small for a "superior" room but it was comfortable and clean. Overall a very good experience and well recommended.

Room Tip: The hotel is on a busy street opposite a market and we were glad we'd spent the extra for a room at the back.

good location . good breakfast. staff is helpful . I ordered single room for 2 nights. bed was not comfortable . the hotel need some renovation . the life is old fashioned. the decor of the hotel is out dated. overall average hotel suits a 3 star hotel more the 4 star.
Breakfast was excellent and the location of the hotel is so good .

I just love the location, its in the middle of everything, walking distance to bars and to the river. Easy access to the underground metro station. Very friendly staff.

Rooms are a bit small but does the purpose. No english TV channels except the news.

We enjoyed this nice, well placed hotel in downtown Dusseldorf. It is near markets, parks and still a short drive from highways. The parking is next door to the hotel, and we found many good restaurants less than 10 minutes walk. Very nice stay!
