We stayed for 2 nights over the Easter weekend. Excellent location: if you arrive by train it is simply 3 min walk from the Centraal. If you are driving, very easy to find, plus a parking just underground...
Did not like that we had to call the hotel (push to talk button on the parking entrance and exit) every time we entered or left the parking. Would be much appreciated if the same room card could open the parking door, or to have a different card or access code to enter/exit...
Room is comfortable. All feels very new and well-maintained. Flat TV with lots of English language channels. Internet is easy to access and speed was good.
Very comfortable and firm mattress. We are both suffering with backaches so we really appreciated the sleep quality and comfort. Although the bed was a bit smaller than expected (even it was queen)... Tea/coffee facilities are in the room, but they do watch your sugar intake! So if you are a sweet tooth, start collecting sugar packets everywhere you see! They gave just two tiny 'fingers' and two sugar replacement tablets for the day... In the bathroom everything is perfect, except drying hair with a hair dryer while standing above and around 'potty' felt a bit weird and super uncomfortable as the wire was short and wouldn't stretch enough...
Breakfast was sumptuous! If you don't find eggs, don't feel shy to ask, they do bring more. The usual variety of cheeses, yogurts, salami, ham, croissants and bread, coffee in the machine (very good), juice, milk, cereals, fruit... Very satisfied! Stuffed!
Bar is open all the time until really late, and for the night hunger attacks there is a vending machine with sandwiches, noodles, etc.
Our room was prepaid with non-refundable option, so at the check in there was no delay at all, we even prepaid our parking at the checkin, so check out was done in 2 min.
Thank you to the staff of the hotel for doing such a good job!
