Adequate stay but issues with some aspects

The hotel was not as good as expected from a 4 star rated establishment. Breakfast was very disappointing to pay extra for a fried egg or omelette is bizarre. The choice of Continental breakfast was very limited overall. Staff are very pleasant and g err generally helpfully. Wi-Fi is very hit and miss

Great value!

This hotel was well located, a decent price (we had to book same-day as another plan had fallen through, and the rate was still good), and the room was nice. Ours was a little noisy as first-floor rooms are slightly below-grade (as in the sidewalk is about halfway up the wall), so as groups went by at night it was a tad noisy. Still, right by the museum and so many sights, I'd consider staying here again.

good hotel shame about the staff!

Clean hotel in a good location, free wifi although didn't work on my partners phone. Only problem was the rude staff. In our room our telly was locked in child mode meaning we had to listen to dutch news, couldn't change channel, volume and the power button didn't work. The only way of turning the telly off was to turn all the electricity off in our room, meaning no lights. We had pre-paid for our room when booking online but when checking out the receptionist charged us a further 70 euros, meaning we had now paid twice, he tried claiming we didn't have a reservation either. After 20 minutes of arguing with the man he gave us our money back. we proved we had already paid, i forwarded him the the confirmation email i had received but apparently this didn't mean anything I have stayed in best western hotels in the past and have been very pleased with the service provided. Very disappointed with the customer service at this hotel.

great place

The hotel is in a great location, quiet but only 2 minutes walk in to town. The room was a little small but clean and had everything we needed. The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for you. I would stay here again.

Cozy Little Nook

I found this hotel to be very economic. It's not a very large living quarter but it's clean, cozy and convenient to the muesuem district as well Liedseplein. Tram stops are all around and food choices are close by. The hotel breakfast is decent, typical continental. Free WiFi, staff is helpful. Minus the small living space this hotel gets my approval.
