We just got home from our trip to the Netherlands. Since we had never been there before we based the hotel selection on reviews and price. I didn't have high expectations. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and helpful suggesting that we visit Papas Beach house for supper. However they did not mention that the breakfast was 14euro and there were no signs. So in the morning we ate the continental breakfast and continued until the third morning when they let us know that it was not included. Of course we should have checked but being from the USA I have never paid for a continental breakfast in a hotel. So beware... Also as our stay went on the housekeeping pretty much became non existent. They made the bed (I doubt with new bedding) but did not vacuum, empty trash, or give us new towels. I talked go the manager and she said 'sorry' but that is all. Also to get the airport you need to take the shuttle you to the larger hotel then move to the larger shuttle (same when coming back). The bus stop is about 1/2 a mile away. So for the price the hotel is OK, we liked that it was not in the city.
