My son and I stayed here. The room was very well furnished and large and the bathroom very clean and roomy. Breakfast was impressive with so much choice of food, fruits, breads, cereals, cold meats and taken on the 3rd floor roof top with interesting (not necessarily pleasing) views across the rooftops of surrounding properties and the canal. Reception staff were friendly. However ... the hotel was extremely hot when we were there. The safe didn't work and despite reporting both to reception, neither issue was really dealt with. Also, we would have to warn visitors about the rooms on the side of the hotel overlooking the youth club "De Fabriek". This is a very noisy place with thumping music until about 10.00 pm. One might argue that this is an acceptable cut off time but beyond their closure, during the night, we experienced a variety of intermittent "activity" in this narrow short street creating noise with cars and people shouting or talking. This is probably outside of the control of the hotel but if this type of thing annoys you, when you book a room, ask to book in a quiet side where such noises are minimised. The location is about 15 - 20 minutes walk from some of the main squares and architectural places of interest. Parking around this hotel is very restricted. I would return to this hotel but would seek a room on the quieter side of the building.
