We arrived at the De Roode Leeuw on a Monday afternoon 10th March 2014 just for a One Night stay.
Check in was fairly easy, but they do ask for a credit or debit card guarantee in our case of £43.06 which I never got back in my account until 19th March.
They seem very concerned about there mini bars.
We were given a room on the second floor with a view of a back street.
The room was small and the bathroom size was a joke.
Two Single beds joined together, about the size of a child's single bed.
We went back to reception to ask why we had been given a room like this and receptionist came up to the room and basically asked, what's wrong with it, and that for another 30 Euros on top of what we paid we could upgrade to a bigger room, she showed me the room, it was exactly the same as our given room but with a little bit more floor space.
Hotel windows are not soundproof and noise of trucks and people shouting was annoying.
Breakfast was terrible, cold scrambled eggs, nearly stale bread and very bad "orange Juice".
I booked this through Avios web site using cash and Avios, what a waste of Avios and cash, it was basically a clean room but reminded me of a youth hostel.
I would never ever go back to this in my opinion dreadful hotel.
I forgot to mention the extensive road and tram works going on at the front of the hotel al along the dam rak.
