The gothic St Lambertus church, the futuristic Rhine Tower and the sensually curved Schauspielhaus all sit harmoniously together in this western Germany city, famed for its thriving art and fashion scenes. Whether lake-swimming in the summer months or shopping at the famous Christmas markets, Düsseldorf is an all-year round destination.

You may wonder what a washing machine is doing in your room, but at this luxury boutique hotel, they take the home-from-home mantra seriously. Let’s face it, who doesn’t love the thought of not lugging home a pile of dirty washing? Of course, it’s neatly out of sight from the chill-out area. Aesthetics are of prime importance here, best displayed in the grand marble lobby with its impressive vaulted ceiling, so expect to see original artworks up on your bedroom walls.

2. Ruby Coco Hotel & Bar, Stadtmitte

An ethos hailing budget luxury is commendable, even more so when there’s no skimping on style and quality. A key player in the neighbourhood, the bar at Ruby Coco is attracts a hip crowd making the most of its 24/7 opening hours. It’s befitting of an establishment in pole position on Königsallee, where the most celebrated fashion shops reside. Anywhere that encourages guests to plug in a guitar for a jam session is alright by us.

3. Ruby Leni Hotel & Bar, Karlstadt

Kudos to designers at the Rubi Leni Hotel – they’ve mastered the art of a good night’s sleep with mattresses to sink into, oversized duvets, high thread count linens, black-out curtains and most importantly, soundproofing. When you’re this refreshed, it makes a night on the razz all the more divine, especially when the hotspot in town is Ruby Leni Bar. Resplendent with red velvet and chandeliers, there’s an exclusive party going on inside and we’re all invited.

4. Maritim Hotel, Lohausen

Dutch designer Vivian van Schagen has surpassed herself with the understated elegance showcased at this central hotel exemplifying modern Düsseldorf. The main draw is the light filled Michelin-starred restaurant Fritz’s Frau Franzi. Under the stewardship of chef Benjamin Kriegel, four to six courses of culinary artistry are served, featuring dishes such as étouffée pigeon with fermented red cabbage and escargot baked in portobello mushrooms, flamed pearl onions and herbs.

Modern meets vintage cosy at this brilliantly designed hotel, where the prominent feature is the savvy incorporation of natural light wherever possible. Extracurricular activities are hosted at the two-floored Paris Club, which houses a restaurant and bar offering a birds-eye view of the glittering city below. Embodying modern France in its menu and décor, the seven-metre ceilings and glass-fronted facade exude the vibrancy of la belle époque.

8. Hotel Windsor, Düsseltal

To fully experience a city, it’s always worth straying beyond the centre. Influenced by the British stately home, Hotel Windsor provides the ideal lodgings in Düsseldorf’s pretty suburbs, while being close to transport links. Period furniture and gold-framed portraits create a distinctive look reflective of the historical past. A stay here reminds you how refreshing it is to be in a family-run hotel, where one-to-one service is a cherished commodity.

9. Hotel Favor, Stadtmitte

Boutique Hotel, Independent Hotel

Ensconced in the heart of the Old Town, entering this hotel is like receiving a warm hug following a long day exploring the cobbled streets of Düsseldorf. Oversized candelabras in the larger rooms are very Phantom of the Opera, no doubt inspired by the city’s dramatic landscape. The surrounding Hofgarten park and its swan lake are chocolate-box pretty, as is the nearby St Andreas, one of the Rhineland’s most beautiful baroque churches.

10. Hotel Berial, Stadtmitte

Boutique Hotel

Service always comes with a personal touch at this boutique hotel, positioned close enough to the city to enjoy its attractions, but far enough away to be in the serenity of the Hofgarten. The healthy and hearty breakfast is generous and phone calls to European landlines are complimentary.
