New and Neat Melia Hotel Düsseldorf Open Now
Popped into our Hotelchatter Flickr Pool recently (thanks, jochenb) were some pics of a new hotel in the Sol Melia Hotel group: the Melia Hotel Düsseldorf, Germany. It's just opened up last month and is certainly lookin' neat and tidy, if the photos are anything to go by.
More info about the new Melia: it's right in the center of Düsseldorf, and it's opposite the Hofgarten, famous for being the oldest public park in the whole of Germany. And it's close to shopping and sightseeing districts, and most conveniently, just a ten-minute drive from the airport.
The Düsseldorf Melia has some opening offer rates starting with their basic double room at €99 ($145) or €139 ($205) with breakfast – that does sound like a lot more for a morning meal, but German breakfasts can be quite lavish affairs (we're not guaranteeing anything here though).
They also have a "Discover Düsseldorf" deal for €175 ($260) which includes Düsseldorf Welcome Cards, giving you free public transport, discounts or free entry to a bunch of museums and a small guidebook, as well as letting you use the hotel's Wellness area for free.
With Düsseldorf's main sights not exactly being well-known, getting one of these cards for plenty of ideas on what to see might not be a bad idea.
