This time I just needed a bed for the night so went for the same as last time with a balcony but on a lower floor. As before, security feels good in this hotel, the room was a decent size and the bathroom was well fitted out. However, my room was rather cold (yes, it's a problem I have, getting warm) and I'm glad I had the foresight to check in early, sort the room out and crank up the radiator before disappearing for the evening. Returning five hours later it was still chilly in there and, annoyingly, reception said they had no electric heaters left. There is a daft habit of installing radiators so they're sited behind curtains (logical, perhaps, because radiators tend to be placed in front of windows) and this means that no heat permeates unless the drapes are left open. This was the case here, made worse by the fact that the radiators were concealed in a wooden casing that blocked off even more warmth. So, even though I left the curtains open, I couldn't get the heat up to a reasonable temperature. At least an apologetic room service brought me extra blankets, and the bed was very comfortable so I was able to get a good solid eight hours of sleep. The bedside lighting is bright enough to make it easy to read, and there's a free power point within reach without having to dismantle the room's electrical connexions. On the downside, it's disappointing that there are no glasses for water, so you have to resort to a nasty plastic tooth-mug, and I also noticed there was a hole where the mini-bar should be (not that I ever use it). Nonetheless this continues to be my hotel of choice in Eindhoven -- not flashy, with rather gloomy decor, but friendly staff and good sized, very clean rooms.
