The room was ridiculously small. My boyfriend could easily touch both walls at the same time and there was only a gap of a foot to walk around the bed. The ceilings were also very low, I'm 5ft 9 and banged my hands off the ceiling every time I changed my top.
The bed was uncomfortable and the springs creaked so much that we ended up sleeping with the mattress on the floor as it was comfier.
The walls were incredibly thin and even the noise of people walking up stairs echoed around the hotel to a deafening level. Our French neighbours spent most of the night shouting and screaming at each other but even after complaining to the hotel staff the noise persisted.
Breakfast was typical Dutch bread, cheese and ham but the quality was poor so we ended up eating at the cafe around the corner instead.
The tea and coffee making facilities in the room consisted of a few teabags that were never replenished and 2 dirty steel cups, one of which didn't have a handle.
The room was advertised as having an FM Radio but this seemed to be a pre-war relic which was impossible to tune in to any station.
The room also had a ladybird infestation which I thought extremely odd given the fact we were there in December.
The location was fine and the shower was the only good thing about the room.
