The apartment is in a building one canal over from the main hotel. Located on the ground level, the space is a bit quirky: upon entry, you go down a few steps into a clean and well equipped galley kitchen with a well-appointed bathroom on the opposite side. Then you go up a few stairs into a spacious and comfortable sitting/dining room with a large sleeping loft (above the kitchen/bathroom). It's modestly stylish though a bit tired — it could use a fresh coat of paint.
It is quiet, located at the back of the building and away from any street noise. it's nice to have a private outdoor seating area, though it is pretty basic, small, with high walls and no view (the voices of children playing in neighbouring yards was pleasant). We were comfortable leaving the door ajar at night for fresh air, but there's AC available, if needed. Typically large dutch windows make the space bright and cheery, but like most hotels and apartments, the lighting is very poor for reading, especially in the sleeping area. More and brighter lamps, please. The wardrobe could use some more hangers too.
The old centrum location is ideal, just steps from the main square which seems to have regular events and markets going on and a nearby grocery is more than adequate for supplies. There are great streets and buildings to explore right out side the front door.
One metal window shade was malfunctioning, but no big deal as we didn't really need to use it, there being large drapes for privacy.
We did not take breakfast or meals in the main hotel, and we like to keep to ourselves, so I can't speak to the quality of those services, but staff were helpful and able to give us a discount pass for a nearby parking lot.
We'd definitely stay there again, and Delft is well worth a few days, from there it's a 15 minute train or hour-long tram to The Hague and Gouda is a 25 minute-drive.
