The hotel is somehow old and shares it's hallways with a home for the elderly which is really a unique setting. The TV in my room was broken and the WIFI did not work. The bandwidth was so low, I barely wasn't able to write this review! I can only recommend this hotel for it's cheap prices.
First of all, the city of Kevelaer is almost dead in winter time.
No people in the streets and shops, no reason to visit unless you need to stay over night because of flights. The hotel rooms are more close to B&B or even hostel, you can not expect anything like in a hotel. The floor carpets will be an issue if anyone has astma or bad allergy because they are dusty and dirty. The rooms were quite cold and heating started to work only after 22.00. The place is as earlier written in reviews in some kind of combination of: Gallerie, hostel, home for very old people or disabled people, SPA, shopping centre- we did not actually get the picture what it is. We think there were no other hotel guests at all in mid February. The room for 2 adults and one child cost 124 EUR incl breakfast. A strange hotel experience, maybe you should try just to see this yourself.
BUT: the employees in reception were kind, helpful and nice. They opened the SPA section in the -1 floor for us, so we had a very private experience of a heated sauna, infra red sauna, Finnish sauna, showers, towels, toilets- just for our selves for several hours. This was really nice and might even consider the hotel again if need to visit to Kevelaer again.
The hotel is on the 2nd/3rd floors of a shopping centre. A shopping centre that is 75% full of empty units. It appears to also built into an old peoples home on floors 1 an 2.
The quad room that we booked was massive. Great value for only €105 for the night
There is wifi but needs upgrading as frequently dropped out.
There is a pool but we didnt have enough time to have a look.
We had a trip to the Christmas Markets in Dusseldorf flying via Weeze Airport. In order to get the early flight back to England we decided to spend the last night in Kevelaer staying at the Park Hotel. The Park hotel is advertised as 3 star on Booking.com. This hotel is awesome its beautifully clean and the reception is lovely the staff are extremely helpful. The restaurant is lovely with good food and there is a shopping mall attached to the hotel. The room was large with a lovely comfortable bed and an excellent shower en suite and it even had a mini bar. This hotel was so much better than the Novum Business Hotel Madison in Dusseldorf and that was rated 4 star??? My biggest regret was that I should have stayed at the Park Hotel for longer. Excellent hotel and I definately would recommend this to others and I will be staying there again in the summer. Kevelaer is a lovely pretty place well worth a visit.
I was touring last week in Germany and wanted to stay a few days at the Dutch-German border.
I wanted to stay in Nijmegen in a hotel with pool, but changed my mind and went across the border.
I read that the Park hotel in Kevelaer had a pool and it was in the centre with a parking garage and free internet.
The internet is a problem, because every time when you leave the room you have to go downstairs to get a paper at the front desk and there is rarely someone there.
We arrived in the evening and the lady who received us was very cold and distant.
She seemed to be annoyed, somewhat irritated when we asked for some information.
Overall not very friendly. It's a great place for very religious, disabled and very old people, our room was 2 doors away from the house chapel and there were many amenities for disabled people in the gallery downstairs. There was a venue for hearing aids, a pharmacy, fysiotherapy and bookstores with mainly religious publications. Rollators and nuns everywhere.
The bathroom was disabled friendly.
The breakfast was fine, the lunch not at all and as icing on the cake a member of staff lectured us in the restaurant because the bathroom had become wet.
We considered shortly to move to another hotel but doing so would accomodate these ridiculous people, so we decided to stay..
