“Very friendly, wonderful customer service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

It is a hotel that is on the more basic end of accommodation. But it is clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly, with great customer service. It had a good buffet breakfast. The staff spoke very good English. The location is great being central to Valkenburg. We went during the christmas market season and used it as a base and not only enjoyed the caves in Valkenburg, but used it as a base to visit Cologne and Aachen in Germany as well. Fabulous and good value.

Just returned after a wonderful stay at the Hotel Palanka. For a hotel on this price bracket it was so lovely to be pleasantly surprised rather than underwhelmed like we normally are by stays in other hotels over the years. Cleanliness is very important to us and we could not fault it. The breakfasts were fantastic, full buffet, more than enough to eat and set us up for the day. Staff were helpful, hardworking and knowledgable about the area. Great swimming pool and parking on site was a bonus. Valkenburg is a quaint, historic little town, with plenty to do, all within walking distance of the hotel. We can't say enough about how pleased we were with our stay.

This review is a little delayed so my apologies. The Hotel Palanka initially impresses exactly what one might expect from a three star hotel in Valkenburg. It is clean, comfortable and convenient. However, it didnt take long for my expectations to be exceeded. The owner of this establishment, Peter, apparently finds it impossible to do enough for his guests. So much so that he made everyone in our large group feel like family. From cooking meals to hand packed lunches to arranging no cost auto transportation and local excursions, to a cup of coffee or a drink at the bar, Peter was extraordinarily accommodating and an absolute pleasure to be around. I look forward to another drink and the Palanka and another conversation with Peter when I return to the Netherlands. Thank you Hotel Palanka!

I have just arrived back in the UK after a fantastic week in Valkenburg. The hotel Palanka was top notch in every way:
- The room was comfortable and very spacious
- The staff were extremely friendly
- The swimming pool/sauna - a nice touch and very clean
- A free of charge car park - very handy with lots of spaces
- The buffet was delicious

This is a family run hotel and everyone involved went out of their way to make my stay a memeroble experience. I will be returning for sure!

Stayed at the Palanka for 4 nights in November. Lovely and clean, rooms a little basic but adequate. Pete and Gana were amazing nothing was to much trouble and their local knowledge invaluable. The hotel is located close to restaurants, and attractions eveything was within walking distance. Would definatley consider going again.

We stayed 9 days in this hotel, and Pete and Gana were great outstanding host and hostess. Our room was clean and comfortable. The bed was only a few months old and no problems with sleeping. The breakfast was also very nice and filling.
What ever you need to make your stay the best, all you have to do is ask pete or Gana and they will make it happen for you.

This old hotel is typical of a friendly family run business.The hotel bedrooms are a little old fashioned but are clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the pool and sauna.The breakfast for European was quite good with fried eggs and European bacon.Nothing to
rave about but comfortable.
