Our visitors for the event
Clean and comfortable hotel, with a good breakfast. Excellent connectivity to the show by Metro. Only 12 Euros for a 3 day ticket.
We were happy with the hotel, thank you very much. The location is very good as is the standard of rooms and services.
With kind wishes,
Thanks for your mail, I see you are “monitoring us”, like CIA / FBI …. J J J We have positive feedback about Euro Park Hotel, all went fine, as scheduled. Anyhow, no problems, we decided to confirm in advance and it is OK, it was our decision. Hotel people were good and friendly, rooms clean, hotel in general was OK. Maybe just a little remark: missing real coffee, maybe better coffee maker is appreciated more (the one available was not good…..but this is our taste, maybe others are appreciating).
Keep in touch Megan,
Bye now, Enzo

We are satisfied with the hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff and good breakfast. Not far from the exhibition area, and a quiet place. Everything was handled smooth, good service.

Thank you for your messenger.
The reservations was very well with the guest. All perfect.
The hotel all in all is good. Rooms are fine with good beds and bathrooms. Breakfast is very good for a hotel of this size. A small thing, but it would have been good with more English speaking TV channels.
It is ok to use public transports to the exhibitions ground, but it would have been even better to have a similar hotel along U78 north of the city centre when exhibiting at the Dusseldorf Messe.
Ingrid/Group Marketing Manager
Thank you for your care and support during our collaboration. We enjoyed Marriott and we had really great results at the fair. I will fill in the feedback for your services soon. Now I’m still caught up with the following tasks after the fair. So far I had some complaints regarding the smoking rooms. Apparently the hotel had no knowledge about your request for the smoking rooms. They had some, but all of them were already given to other guests. We kindly ask you to check where the miscommunication happened. Thank you and looking forward to our next collaboration.
