WestCord Hotel Delft
Ranked #2 of 15 Hotels in Delft
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersGold level
Reviewed 12 August 2011

The Westcord is a hotel that is owned by IKEA and operated by the Westcord. It is next door to the EMEA IKEA Innovation center/store. It is about 1.2km from Delft City Center and the hotel has bikes and motorized scooters for rent. The bicycles are only for adults and no children's bikes or bike's with child seats are available at the time of this writing.

The parking is free, and plentiful which is rare. Most hotels either don't have parking, or is for a daily fee!

What makes the hotel exceptional is the staff and their willingness to accommodate the guests. Another nice option is the availability of a "suite" where a combination microwave/oven is in the room with a wall divider between the bedroom and the living area. A nice option if you are traveling with a family.

The hotel restaurant had a kitchen staff change when they went from being a Tulip Inn to a Westcord, and the quality of the food has improved. The Westcord also offers a wide variety in the bar and a nice wine selection.

A breakfast plan is optional for 10 euro per day, and well worth it. They have a nice selection of breakfast options at the buffet.

If you are looking for the "Old world charm" of a European hotel, the Westcord is not for you. It is modern and not in the old City Center. I have been to Delft more than 20 times in the last four years and first stayed in the City Center hotels and ended up at the Westcord and haven't moved since. I find that the walk to the Center is so easy that I don't feel the need to be "IN" the Center to enjoy it.

Unless something changes drastically to the hotel, it will continue to be my top choice.

In addition to my review of August 3rd. 2010, I have to inform you that nowadays the airconditioner is centrally swichted-off from 11 pm till about 7 am daily. These are the hours that an airconditioner is needed at most on warm days. So I lowered my rating with one dot to 4.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights on our way from a holiday in the Harz to Ijmuiden for the ferry. Delft is a magnificent little town and well worth a stop.

The Westcord suited us as it lies right beside the motorway and avoids hotel-search problems. It is kitted out IKEA style but don't let that put you off. It is is a lovely hotel with great rooms (soundproofing is brilliant, and the beds so comfortable!). But above all in this calming hotel is the quality of the staff; they are all young folks but are so cheerful, so helpful and without any hang-ups - just good staff wanting to help.

We will be back; cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

Clean, nice staff. On the downside, no cooktop..only equipped with micro/convection oven. If you don't drink instant coffee, best to take your own French Press or a small coffee burner and your own pot. Alternatively you can buy a coffee maker for about 10Euros. Restaurant a bit expensive. We'd definitely stay here again though.

What I disliked about the hotel is that bathroom door is transparent above 1.7metres so you could see the inside but you get used to it. The bathroom door is lockable from the inside but during our stay, my room mate locked himself in because the lock broke and we had to call maintenance to get him out. Our room has windows which faces the opposite room windows so you could see what your neighbours on the opposite side are doing! But there are curtains to block your view. The airconditioning sometimes is not powerfull enough. The room trashbins are too small so we throw large stuff near the elevator bins. The breakfast is a buffet style with a wide variety. No scrambled eggs on Saturday and breakfast starts at 8 on Sundays. Only bathing soap and hand soap is provided. No toothbrush or toothpaste or shampoo. There is no convenience store at the hotel but there is a vending machine which sells drinks. Apart from that, everything else is terrific. There is free WIFI in every room. There are English channels on TV including cartoons. The beds are comfortable but only 1 pillow. There is a safe and a kettle. The location is good. For lunch we ate at nearby IKEA 2nd floor or hotdogs and ice cream at 1st floor at Ikea. For grocery, its a 15 minute walk to Zuidpoort in Delft City Centre. There is also a Mcdonalds there. Local attractions include Delft Science Centre. There is a large playground somewhere south of Delft City Centre.

Pleasantly surprised by clean room, modern, cheerful & space-saving decor, & friendly service. Food is good, location convenient (next to Ikea), 15 min walk to city centre & Delft train station, can also take a bus to city centre (bus stop just outside Ikea).

Room Tip: Get a room facing Ikea

Spent many nights during last few months, food is easy but tasty, fresh stylish atmosphere with friendly and helpful crew. Decorated in IKEA style. Rooms are located in H-form floors around central hall, giving is a very sacial effect. Easy to get there (by car, along A13) but still only 15 min walk to town.
