Vacation in your homeland – Mercure Hotel Düsseldorf-Kaarst

I guess, everyone knows it. The drive for a time-out which becomes more and more intense. That’s how Mr. J. and I felt the last times. So it was really convenient when Reisehummel* invited me into the Mecure Hotel in Düsseldorf-Kaarst. Because who says, that you can’t spend this time-out in your homeland?! 🙂

Reisehummel is a vendor of short trips, specialized in Germany, and has many amazing hotels, thermal baths and much more on offer. So if you’re planning a trip in Germany, have a look on their website. 🙂 You can find my impressions of Düsseldorf and my tips and recommendations HERE.

Location & reachability

For everyone, who doesn’t know the place, I wanna say, that Kaarst isn’t a district of Düsseldorf and that you need about 20 minutes by train to Düsseldorf. So if you only want to concentrate on Düsseldorf you probably should book a hotel in the centre.

But for those, who appreciate the quiet and maybe want to go to Kaarster See (it’s a lake in Kaarst), which ist about 10 minutes by train, this hotel is definitely a good choice. You need about 10 minutes by feet from the trainstation and the hotel is near the freeway exit ramp Holzbüttgen of the A57.

Ambience & staff

When you enter the hotel it appears really modern and the staff at the reception is very friendly! Unfortunately check-in is not until 3 pm. But still we drove there earlier, around 1 pm. We speculated, that maybe our room is ready for us earlier. 😛 Of course, it wasn’t, so we deposed our luggage at the reception and drove to Düsseldorf for our first scouting expedition.

Our double room at the Mercure Hotel

Our room was really big and very bright! The carpet was a little stale, but this is the only negative aspect I can mention. It was clean, the bead was comfy and we had a Tassimo on our room which we could use for free. Indeed there were each only two sorts of tea and coffee, but I really like that kind of service.

The bathroom is also very bright, we had a bathtub, a big mirror and many small and well scented samples. Unfortunately the provided shower gels and shampoos have a really weird scent in most hotels. But the ones from Mercure scented pretty good. Fortunately, because indeed I’ve forgotten my shampoo and had to use the one from the hotel.

Breakfast & dinner

The breakfast has a really great and big choice of treats for you. Different juices, fresh rolls from the local baker, different sorts of cuts and cheeses, mueslis, yogurts and all the stuff which is essential for a good breakfast!

But we also tried the restaurant in the hotel for dinner and we both ordered steak. It’s our one and only treat. 😉 And it was a really good choice. Tasty meat and a great cooking. But of course it is a little higher-priced there.

Upshot of our stay

The Mercure Hotel definitely could convince me. We had a nice and really pleasant stay at the hotel. For us it wasn’t a big deal, that the hotel isn’t directly in Düsseldorf. So you don’t have the hurly-burly of the city around you all the time, but still you’re in the big city quite fast.

Do you like spending your vacation in your homeland? Or do you prefer more exotic or faraway places? 🙂

    Hey Diandra,

    das kann ich gut nachvollziehen – eine Nacht im Hotel ist auch in der Heimat etwas Besonderes. Einfach mal rauskommen aus den eigenen vier Wänden und was Neues sehen 🙂

    Schöne Grüße,

      Hallo Caro,

      ganz genau 🙂 Vor allem dieses ‘einfach mal rauskommen’ finde ich extrem wichtig, um sich nicht komplett im Alltag zu verlieren.

      Liebe Grüße
