Thank you Megan,
The Novotel was absolutely fine, thank you for your follow up. We do not attend WTM, but appreciate you asking.
With kind regards,
It's a budget hotel do not expect much, they provide clean room but small room size. The hotel not far from Messe Duesseldorf by car but if you want to take public transport between the hotel and Messe Duesseldorf it's not convenient. But if you prepare to take taxi so it's not far from the place about 15 minutes
I am very happy to have the help of Travel to Fairs ltd!
They found a good hotel – good value for money - although it was very late
the clients feedback is very plain and simple: they say that everything went fine. :-)
Thank you very much
Thank you for email. Everything went well during our stay. The hotel allowed early check-in. Room is new and clean, but is too small, and the hotel is located in good location as it is convenient to public transportation and walking distance to the old town. Only few points, it's a bit noisy surrounding(from the road), especially at night. The room does not seal and not well sound protected. With the room rate it would be good if the hotel served BF. Thank you.
The team of Travel To Fairs Ltd. has helped me a lot, met my needs (research for an accomodation for my guests, and changes of the last minutes); the hotel, a three stars category 20 minutes from the fair of Trondheim, was very clean and the staff very helpfull and kind.
Convenient location to the Messe Duesseldorf and to the Airport. Next to the KAMPS bakery who opens at Sunday morning.
All went well, your support as always has been perfect.
