Reviewed 13 July 2012

The Proprietors of this Hotel have really done their homework and have come up with a great result. Hotel is located in a quiet street but centrally located and just a few minutes walk from the Bus Stop where the 721 from the airport stops.
My wife and I chose Dusseldorf as we wanted to visit Floriade 2012 which this year is in Venlo in Holland which is about an hour's train journey from the station. We used the Hotel's room card that provided free travel on German transport, which was great as we just had to pay a few Euro's for the train journey in Holland.
The room was clean and comfortable, flat screen tv, wonderful expresso coffee machine and free wifi in the hotel.
Great continental breakfast served in a very nice breakfast room on the ground floor.
Would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this hotel.
Dusseldorf has quite a bit to offer, great walks by the Rhine and boat trips available all very reasonable.
Plenty of restaurants and bars catering for all tastes.
Loved it all.

A tiny hotel, nothing much to look at, very conveniently placed between the station and the main shopping street, and a shortish, pleasent, walk up to the main tourist area of the old town. It's very friendly, has simple and perfectly comfortable rooms, and the little touches which make such a difference: very helpful staff (I say staff, I only encountered the lady whom I presume runs it), free coffee, beer and soft drinks in the lobby; a microwave and plates etc if you want to dine in; and a simple but good breakfact (including fresh bread and buns, freshly made eggs and strawberries when I stayed). The reception isn't manned but you are given a front-door key. And, as various others have noted, you are given a free transport pass for the NRW region which lasts through your stay (and will take you back to Dusseldorf airport). Stongly recommended.

Like other reviewers, we loved the Max Garni...what a charming excellent small hotel! And at a very reasonable rate. We only had 2 days in Dusseldorf, and the hotel suited us perfectly, near the station, and not too far to walk to the main sights and shopping etc. The hotel provided us with transport tickets so it certainly wasn't a problem to get around. The room was compact but had everything we wanted. It was nice and bright with big opening windows looking out onto the street. Everything worked well and the room was immaculate. Normally we like to have a minifridge for our milk and drinks, but this hotel had a common small fridge in the foyer (along with a coffee machine) and drinks including water, soft drink and beers!! were available free of charge. The 2 lovely ladies who looked after us for our stay were terrific...friendly and efficient, no-fuss etc. Breakfasts were great too...in a lovely breakfast area...not too elaborate...but a lovely spread of fresh food...and eggs cooked to order. The hotel has a lot of nice little touches, everything well planned and thoughtful...but still quite minimalist and altogether perfect!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the stairs may be the quietest.

I booked this because of good reviews and because of the free Rhine-Ruhr transport pass that lasts the duration of your trip. I was travelling around the area visiting museums a lot and the pass saved me a lot of money compared to buying day tickets.

I was very satisfied with the room in general and the comfiness of the bed. I was in room 15 and couldn't get wifi most of the time on phone or laptop: ended up taking a chair out of the room and sitting by the guest laptop using my own.

The free mineral water, cola and beer is a nice touch.

My only complaint is that there are no opaque curtains on the windows: only nets and a peculiar sliding vinyl blind that only covers a thin vertical slice. If I hadn't brought a sleep mask the streetlights would have kept me awake.

We stayed at the Max Garni for a few days whilst visiting our son in Dusseldorf. We booked after looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor and the good ratings are very well deserved. We found all the staff to be really helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was large, with a good sized bathroom and comfy bed (apart from the huge, soft pillows, but that's just the way they are in Germany); everything was immaculately clean. It was great to have free coffee and cold drinks (water, coke and beer) throughout our stay and access to cutlery, crockery and a microwave was a thoughtful touch. There's a REWE supermarket just around the corner, so you could prepare your own food if you needed to keep costs down.

We had no problem with wifi connection (room 20) although other reviewers have experienced problems, so perhaps it's down to the location of your room. Our room was at the back there was no noise from the road, but the floors are tiled, so if you have noisy neighbours it does echo a bit. During our stay there was only about 1 hour where we were kept awake by people coming in late. Other than that we didn't hear the other guests.

The area is good and the hotel is surrounded by flats, with a few small shops. It's only a short walk to the main train station and to the metro or tram stops. The free travel card is an excellent idea. This and the coffee and drinks throughout the day more than make up for reception not being manned 24 hours. It looks like someone has thought very carefully about what travellers really want and has tried to provide it for a reasonable price.

We didn't have breakfast in the hotel, but on our last morning we went to Rosie's, just a short walk away (Adersstrasse 21). It was crowded every time we walked past and we wanted to know why. It's a lovely place to stop for a coffee or snack/meal.

Room Tip: Number 20 was large, quiet and had good wifi.
