    Good

    Original layout of the hotel, there is a lot to discover at the back yard

    The hotel should be absolutely renovated. Everything is old and screams for a refreshing touch: carpets, painting, bathroom accessories, wood frames, towels were torn of being used for years.

  • 10.0
    Exceptional

    Perfect location, high level staff professionalism, kindness, excellent food, spacious room and facility, elegant but warm environment.Stylish furnishings and decor throughout the Hotel.

    Absolutely the only single detail I could think to improve, would be to provide 1 big bath towel, alongside the other beautiful clean comfortable smaller towels.

    Exceptional

    We had a very pleasand stay at this comfortable hotel in its admirable city centre locatin. It was great value for a weekend break, though for some older people the stairs would be rather steep and the noise from the revellers outside a little intrusive. . Overall the hotel had a woderful ambience, the breakfast was first class and the staff were excellent. I would strongly recommend this in contrast to more modern hotels.

    The room lacked coffee/tea making facilities, which was a great pity.The courtyard steps and surrounds urgently need redecoration.

    Fabulous

    The reception and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Delicious breakfast especially the freshly baked bread.

    The bathroom lighting is very poor and there is no daylight in the room. Very steep and noisy stairs, could hear guests coming and going all night long.

    Very good

    The breakfast was wonderful, especially the freshly baked bread from the bakery in the hotel. The bar was nice and the location couldn't be beat. The lobby was beautiful, which spilled into the bar area, with soft lighting and leather chairs and couches. A very cozy environment.

    The hotel was loud. It's an old building, so you could hear people walking and since our room was in the back, we heard the cleaning up of the restaurant's dishes and could smell cigarette smoke from someone below. If you're a light sleeper, it might be problematic.

    Nice hotel, great location and lovely interior

    Room was too warm - and heating was not on - outside temperature 18 C, so why? Sauna is a one person affair, and not available after 18:00, so why bother to mention it.

    Very good

    Room very thigh. cheap bed and linen. clean room and staff was very helpful. apart from this, the service/price is quite poor.

    not chose this hotel again. there is another choice for cheap price, and better service, outside the city centre...

    Exceptional

    All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel was very clean and comfortable.Buffet breakfast was exceptional. Excellant location.We plan to visit again and recommend to others who will be visiting my daughter who is at the University for 3 months.

    The entrance could be more welcoming if the steps were cleaned. This may be due to the fact that scaffolding was up at the time of our visit.

    Room temperature was very high (32) and there was no airconditioning and a fan was not provided. despite request. Room was on first floor on a very noise street. I had no sleep.

    the hotel is located very close to all nice places, has an encanting central garden, but price of food and drink is on the high side.

    Exceptional

    This is a superb hotel in all regards, and one of the best -- if not the best -- I have stayed in in my life. There are any number of comfortable places here to sit, muse, have a quiet drink, and the courtyard is delightfully atmospheric. I have no hesitation in recommending it, and no reservations whatsoever.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    A nice Hotel with facilitates as expected and with respect to the culture of Holland. Also important is the position close to the center of the town. Free wireless internet is very nice and works. Price level ok compared to the general level in Holland.

    Exceptional

    The location in the centre and the charm of the Hotel. The breakfast was also very good. I will stay in this hotel again and can recommend to others.
