The one and only good thing about this hotel is the location. Right in the center of de waterkaant neighborhood which is great for all the gay bars and some good restaurants. It sure is nice to walk a block or two home instead of the cab ride.
We had a "luxury room" and I was told this would be the largest room in the hotel. The only thing luxury about the room might be the designer pillows on the bed. There was about 2-3 feet of room around the bed and then some storage space. The air conditioner was stuck on one temperature and one fan speed (luckily this temp worked for us.) There were light bulbs out in the bathroom. The safe was broken and thus unusable. The carpet was dirty, The headboard was dirty.
The upstairs pool area had lots of potential in the dark. But during the day it looked disgustingly dirty. The pads for the lounge chairs were filthy! The loungers themselves were a cool looking wicker which would be nice but people had stuck candy wrappers and cigarette butts into them. This was not a pleasant place to hang out by the pool or even sit for a cocktail. It just felt very dirty.
