Very good location close to the railway station and a very short walk into the city centre, I received a warm welcome from a multilingual Dutch receptionist, who proved to be very helpful with information about the city.
I was allocated room 208 at the rear of the hotel, so nice and quiet. The room was a reasonable size with double bed and a large en suite shower room. Electric shutters ensured the room was nice and cool and perfectly dark at night.
The corridors and stairways to my room were poorly lit by timed buttons, otherwise the hotel facilities seemed fine. In fact it looked as though the reception and lobby and dining areas had recently had a very agreeable make-over.
Throughout my first day there the front door, which operates electronically, and other electric systems, were undergoing maintenance and this was a bit inconvenient as the power was off and I had to wait for the door to be opened manually on my many excursions into and out of the building.
I noticed that during the mornings when guests were wishing to check out there were very few staff on duty, or they were engaged elsewhere, and guests were having to wait longer than I would have thought reasonable.
The breakfast buffet provided a reasonable choice, with a member of staff on hand to ensure supplies didn't run low.
I thought this was an OK hotel that I would use again for a city break or overnight stop.
