2.42km from Herr Dr. med. Gerrit ArltOn arrival here I was greeted by Klaus, a really friendly German fellow who spoke great English (at this point my German was non-existent). He was really helpful and got me checked in quickly... just what you want when you've been traveling for several hours. That friendliness carried on through the rest of my 9 day stay. The breakfast team were always smiling and happy to help, even though I couldn't speak their language at the beginning, they spoke flawless English. Dennis always greeted me with a smile and a friendly hello and I really felt welcome. The hotel was clean and tidy, my room was nicely done each night, and the mattress was comfortable. Breakfast was good as I really like fruits, yoghurt, cereal and all that stuff so I could put my own together. If you're a cooked breakfast fan, this place might not be for you. If you're a European cold meats and cheeses for breakfast type person, you're well catered for here. I couldn't really fault Barbarossa and for the money it was great. It's super easy to get to the Messe Düsseldorf on the train in the morning too. The main thing that I will remember about my stay here though was Klaus and his colleagues. Always friendly, always laughing, helpful, funny, just a generally lovely person. He certainly went above and beyond and thats what made my stay in a strange town with a load of people I didn't know. If I ever own a hotel... I'm coming to seal Klaus away so we can give the same service to our guests. Thanks again Barbarossa. See you next year.
