I stayed two nights and thought this to be a very good choice for visiting Delft and the surrounding area.
I had a double room on the 7th floor which overlooked the city. The room is spacious and clean with comfortable modern furniture. The large windows slide open, so you can enjoy the fresh air, but the rooms are also air conditioned which can be adjusted to your preference. The aircon was the quietest I have ever had in a hotel room - they often keep me awake, but not here. Bathrooms are spacious with a shower over the bath and amentities like razors and combs are complimentary in additon to the expected shower gel, soap etc.
Breakfast is a buffet served in the first floor restaurant which is very pleasant and looks out towards the city. There was a full range of breakfast options, cereals, breads, fruit, cheeses and cold meats as well as hot options of eggs and bacon. Plenty available and regularly topped up.
Front desk service was excellent. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant and seemed happy to help in any way.
Wifi (free) throughout the hotel worked well and seemed fast - I was able to stream UK radio without problem.
The location was perfect for the city - particulalry if you are coming by car as it is just a short drive off the motorway and there is an underground car park opposite the hotel which, if you are used to UK car parks, will be a revelation - you would be hard pressed to find a more well-lit, clean or secure car park anywhere!
A very short and pleasant walk and you are in the city centre with its canals, beautiful buildings, shops and cafes. The best thing to do is just to wander and explore, it's all very pretty. The climb up the church tower is worth it for the amazing views, but not for the unfit or those wary of heights - or very narrow spiral stairs!
I booked directly on the hotel's web site and got a very good package rate, so look out for packages and offers which seem to be available if you book ahead, they offer really excellent value. My rate included a free canal boat trip which is well worth doing.
All in all, I would definitely stay again and would reccomend this hotel.
