Let me start by saying Pietermaai is a very nice neighborhood. Some highlights about the hotel. Nice: location, room size, cooking facilities, friendly staff. Not so nice: room cleaning, bad lighting, small bathroom, toilet smell.

This is THE place to stay in the historic Pietermaai district. Great location that is within easy walking distance of many great restaurants, entertainment venues and site seeing. My room was clean, nicely decorated and having a kitchen gave me an opportunity to fix some of my own meals. Everyone on the staff was kind, accommodating, and helpful. The entire... More

I stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The room was very cute and a great deal. It was a very short walking distance from the major sights and lively at night with bars and restaurants within 5 min walk. A shop and hairdresser on the grounds were a nice addition.

The hotel itself is unique since it does not feel like a hotel since you get your own independent apartment for your stay with a small kitchenette to prepare meals, if you would like!
