“Not too many hotels in Gouda - hard to really rate”
Reviewed 20 April 2011

This was one of our least favorite hotels while travelling London, Belgium and the Netherlands in April. However, we were cycling at this point in the trip and the hotel was booked within the affordable price range I requested of the tour company. The hotel also had locked storage for the bikes. So I guess I would say "it did."

We had the "suite" which contained an extra room with a futon couch and peeling wallpaper. The draping around the bed was a nice touch, but the bedding itself seemed old and I am really uncofmortable sleeping under a duvet that many others have no doubt used. The bathroom and shower were small.

Breakfast also "did" - selections of cheeses and meats and honey cake from the grocery store. There was a really good Italian restaurant just a few steps away from the hotel, so that was convenient for dinner.

Luke-warm welcome, tiny ice-cold room, although room booked many weeks before arrival central heating was not switched on so room like an ice-box! Only one duvet each and in November that is just not enough so ended up throwing our coats over as well. Tiny, cold shower-room. Breakfast very meager and parking well away from hotel, very inconvenient although this was not made clear upon my telephone enquiry. Inshort - DO NOT GO THERE!

More like a bed and breakfast. Central in town. Very tiny room, not so clean and old bedstuf.
Would not recommend!

to be honest i am surprised it can legally call itself a hotel, as it is so limited in terms of facilities it offers; no lounge area of any sort etc. The rooms are laughably small; as a previous reviewer commented, the sink was fitted into the closet as the bathroom was too small for it. The decor throughout is ultra low budget. The place totally lacks any sophistication and has more the feel of a youth hostel than a hotel. Avoid. In fact i would give Gouda a miss; there are much better places to visit in Holland.

Nice hotel - clean room and very comfortable bed. Good location, but wouldn't recommend going to Gouda on a Monday, as most of the tourist attractions are closed.

Reviewed 6 July 2008

For older travellers you expect more than a tiny room with the sink in a closet and a bathroom wich barely had room for a shower and a toilet. This was really a bad experience and unless you are young and willing to pay for absolutely no comfort I suggest you find a room somewhere else. Breakfast consisted of the absolute minimum they could offer, and if you want to settle your bill by credit card there was a surcharge. Payment was cash in hand and no receipt offered.
