    « Don't miss the delicious breakfast »

    I stayed here during the fair, so the hotel was fully booked (about 20 mins by car to Düsseldorf fair grounds -> don't take the Autobahn at rush hour times). The staff was really friendly, even though we often arrived hungry late in the evening. The kitchen is open until 10 p.m. and you can get drinks at the bar well into the night. The breakfast buffet was delicious: meatballs, little sausages, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, yoghurt, cut fruit, real German bread, toast, jam, honey, cheese, meat, you name it. And if that was not enough, you could have pancakes or fried eggs. Then there was also fresh orange juice, lactose-free milk, coffee and several types of tea (black, green, herbal infusions). Certain coffee specialities and cocoa could be had as well. The only thing I didn't like were the rolls, which were of a cheap kind and dry. But the bread was good. I had a double room of my own on the third floor. The bedroom and the shower (very modern) were spacious. The colleagues who slept on the second floor told me their rooms were smaller (even though those were double rooms, too). There were several lamps in my room but still it was relatively dark. The bus stop is right in front of the house. So if you insist on sleeping with an open window and you are not used to street noise, you should go for a room on the back side of the house. There is free parking in the underground car park but there is not much space. Better try the few parking spaces behind the building.

    Overall experience was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and organized. 5 minute walk to quaint downtown shopping district. Quick 10 minute taxi ride to Dusseldorf airport.

    « Nice »

    The hotel appearance is very new. Room was clean. Especially I liked the brightness of the room. But there was only a small sign saying "Best western" out side of the hotel, so I wondered if this is the destination or not.

    « Rude staff in the restaurant »

    We stayed here for five nights in October to attend Spieltagen in Essen. My experience with the hotel was mostly very good. Our room was spacious, but since we were three people in one room it still felt crowded. Check-in was smooth, and we were always met with a smile in the reception area. Breakfast is very expensive (€12), and you can get much cheaper food at the grocery store and the bakery across the street. Our room was always clean and tidy when we came back in the evening (although the cleaning lady did leave a rag on one of the chairs once). The real issue I had was with the waitress in the hotel's restaurant. Her English was not perfect, but sufficient to serve and take orders. However, we were not treated very nicely on our last night, she insulted us by saying we were only there for the free drinks when we asked if the dessert came with a free hot drink (which is what the menu said), she rudely told us to "STOP!" playing our card game when she brought us the food, but had then completely forgotten my dish, and didn't even remember it when she put down dishes in front of my two companions. She also talked rudely to a French couple that wanted to reserve a table, and had a loud argument with a German guest that made the whole room feel quite uncomfortable. Overall our stay was very comfortable, except for our dining in the restaurant.

    « Lovely stay »

    Easy to find place you can't miss it on the junction but the car park is small and around the back. Once parked and you walk in the lobby we was met by friendly staff who were more than willing to help and the atmosphere was great in the hotel restaurant. The rooms were small or the one I had was but it had everything and was clean and comfy. Nice nights sleep nice hotel.

    « Nice modern hotel »

    Only a one night stay in a coach party. Made to feel welcome. Rooms good but self-service food was strange. Lots to choose from but nothing quite seemed to go with anything else - perhaps its a German thing... Have to get used to the continental system of marked beer mats to tot up your drinks bill.

    « Good location »

    A nice hotel near the center of the Ratingen; the room is clean and enought big. Is possible to go to the center by walk in 10 min or take the bus o metro in front the hotel. Out the hotel there is a supermarket. Good location to stay in Ratingen.

    « Very comfortable and clean hotel »

    We have stayed at this hotel before and were very impressed with the cleanliness and breakfast. However, on booking for another stay were very disappointed with the price, both of the hotel and the breakfast. As an English couple we had extolled the quality of our stay to fellow travellers saying that the British hotels don't know how to serve a continental breakfast. We found that for both hotel and breakfast had vastly increased.. If your appetite is poor, definitely consider whether you want to pay the £15.00 for breakfast however good it might be.

    « Refuge from the Trade Fair »

    The Hotel Breitbach was a welcome site each night after the trade fair. The location is ideal, very near to a nice city center of Ratingen, but also just steps away from a U bahn station that would take you directly to the Altstadt of Duesseldorf. The staff was friendly throughout the hotel. Very few of the staff I had contact with did not speak English. The room was clean and well kept. It included a hair dryer, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, which was a welcome surprize considering the number of shirts and pants I had to iron over the course of the trade fair. The breakfast was substantial, with the typical continental menu plus scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. You could also request omlettes and pancakes from the kitchen (which I did). The restaurant was good but had a limited menu. It also was hit and miss on whether it was open, based primarily on filled rooms I suppose. The same was true with the bar, since it shared space with the restaurant. Fortunately, if the restaurant and bar was closed, the distance to ample restaurant choices in Ratingen city center was small.

    « Nice hotel. Brilliant staff »

    We stayed at this hotel two weeks ago during Japan day. Fantastic festival. Hotel was clean, nice location with supermarket in front. A small walk to the old town centre for shopping, restaurants, pubs etc. Staff were really helpfull, catered for every thing we asked for. Happy customer.

    « Recently refurbished »

    This hotel has recently become part of the Best Western chain and is a good example of a mid priced hotel typical in this part of North West Germany. Free and quick internet is available, and a workstation and printer is available if you need to use a PC. Whilst the well equipped and comfortable rooms are of average size for a German hotel, they may appear on the small side to non European visitors. This hotel is on the bus route to the Düsseldorf Airport Train Station which itself is a 5 minute Skytrain ride to the actual airport.

    « Nice hotel close to Dusseldorf »

    « Compact »

    Nice, compact, easy and fast. The hotel staff is very helpful hey. And the hotel is near Dusseldorf airport, which is a few minutes drive. When i got there, i settled quite fast without having to wait a long time.The breakfast buffet offers a wide choice to choose from.

    « Very nice single room »

    I stayed in this Hotel during a team Golf tournament so I did not choose it myself in the first place but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the single room I had and especially of the service quality and of course the breakfast. The hotel itself is situated on a street corner that seems to have life on it 24/7 although there is only one super market close by, and it is only open during the day and not at all on sundays. So make sure to request a room facing the back in order to avoid the noise that might come at 3:30 on a Sunday morning... The room I had was a single room and very roomy for that. the hotel seems to have undergone a major overhaul in 2014 or 2015 since everything related to the interior seemed brand new. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom spacious enough for the demands of changing and showering multiple times a day. Extra attention must be afforded to the extensive breakfast buffet. Not only extensive but of high quality as well, with a wide variety of cereals, breads and rolls, meat, cheese, eggs of different varieties, juices, teas and so forth are sure to satisfy every taste there could be. The staff will also take extra wishes. All in all this is a great hotel if you want to stay in Ratingen, after having seen other hotels here as well I am now declaring this one my favorite ;-)

    « Forget the big places near the airport - this place ticks all the boxes at a reasonable price. »

    Good location - near to stop on on airport-Ratingen bus route, and 5 minute walk to pleasant town square with good eateries. Spotless, comfortable room; friendly and helpful staff. Ratingen is perfect for stopover but hotel is on tram route to Dusseldorf centre if staying longer. Taxi required early mornings, about 15 minute ride.

    « Convenient hotel »

    We were switched here at the last minute from another hotel nearby. Lovely clean rooms, good size walk in showers and comfy beds. Previous occupants underpants found behind the luggage stand which the cleaner had missed! No air conditioning but as it was very hot the hotel staff found us a fan. Good breakfast selection. Friendly staff who gave us good travel advice for trains to Koln and buses back from the station. We will return when we next visit our friends as it's only a few minutes walk to Marktplatz and various restaurants. The only downside was the pillows which were dreadful. We noticed some local guests brought their own pillows. Impossible to access WiFi which was a bonus as it gave us a break but maybe not so good for business travellers.
