“We nicknamed this hotel "Fawlty Towers"- not a nice hotel!”
Reviewed 30 July 2007

When we arrived at the hotel, we had to wait 45 minutes to get in as the owner was not there, and he was very rude to us when we called to be let in! In addition, the first room we were given was a buidling site, then had to go through the process of being given 3 more wrong room keys before finally getting a key to the right rooms. The rooms thenselves were very basic, dirty with wallpaper coming off the walls etc. The mattresses on all beds were so uncomfy. However, the hotel is in an excellent location, and the breakfast was good. However even though we were expecting basic accommodation, this was worse than we could ever expect, will not be going back!

There were some problems with Hotel Baan, but we still enjoyed our stay. The online reservation form did not work and I had to call to make a reservation. When we arrived the owner was not present and we had to wait outside for his return. The rooms are very basic and the heat is not very forceful. But, we still very much liked Hotel Baan. It was easy to get to using public transportation. The owner was very friendly with us and took a lot of time with us--answering our questions about Holland and Rotterdam. The breakfast spread was good and filling; the coffee very good. It had a family-oriented feel to it, as the owner lives in the building with his wife, children, and other family members. Our room had a lovely view of the canal and surrounding neighborhood. It was a little pricey for the services, but still less expensive than anything else we found in Rotterdam. Know what to expect at Hotel Baan, and it will be enjoyable. We would stay there again.

We booked through GWK at Enschede Train Station. They took a credit card no to confirm the booking and quoted a price of €66 for a twin room with Shower only.
When we went to pay for the room it turned out that they levy 8% on room price for Credit Card Payments. The price quoted was the cash price. The manager/owner was very aggresive in explaining that this levy was necessary in order to ensure he made a profit - we felt that we were just a means of lining his pocket and didn't feel at all welcome! Obviously they are in business to make a profit but what about customer service....is it not a service industry?

Also, seems Shower only means no toilet in the room although they did end up giving us a room with a shower & toilet - maybe because they had already sent us to the wrong room. (We assumed shower only meant no bath - silly us!)

The wallpaper was peeling off the walls, the window was wedged open with the TV Control and the safe didn't work!!! Needless to say we won't be staying there again.
