Stayed at this hotel on business for 2 months. The deluxe rooms are better than the standard "Ikea" rooms which are small but comfy (single beds only). All rooms have a kitchenette (sink, cutlery, kitchen units, a small electric hob, fridge and kettle). The standard Ikea rooms have a shower "wet room" with shower curtain (so it's not that wet!) and the deluxe have a bath and the bathroom is a lot bigger.
Obviously the deluxe rooms are a lot nicer and larger with double beds and a Sofa to lounge on. Only let down of the hotel is that it's not in the city centre although the Metro Maashaven is opposite (7 mins into town). The other downside is the Metro itself, as it's opposite, the noise can sometimes be very annoying and very loud depending on which side of the hotel your room is on. Also there is no air conditioning (it was very hot during a heat wave they had).
From what I understand, the hotel was originally supposed to be a block of flats (half of it still is - top half), the rest was turned into standard and deluxe rooms, hence why there is no aircon.
The staff are friendly enough but service was slow in the restaurant (which has a limited menu) when busy (which wasn't too often!). But obviously you do have a kitchenette available and there is a supermarket about a 10 min walk from the hotel.
Would only stay there if I couldn't get a better deal in town as the rooms are new and clean. Otherwise, there are better hotels.
