Best Western Plus City Hotel Gouda

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was very comfortable and there was lots of room to stretch out. Great shower, comfy bed (even for those with a bad back). The hotel was very clean and seemed very new (or recently renovated). The wifi worked flawlessly. The location is an easy walk to city centre and there is a grocery store within walking distance. They have free secure parking for bikes. The only downside was that breakfast was not included in the room price and was pricey (we did not partake).

Stayed Sunday night through Thursday for a Tue/Thur meeting after some hitches in making a booking, due to not being able to access the conference block booking. The hotel restaurant does not really serve Sunday meals, but cheerfully put me up a quick steak/chips. Breakfast was good (especially the warm rye bread, and cheeses of course). 2 cup instant coffee (one decaf) and teas in room. King size double bed, separate toilet and a bathtub/shower requiring some athleticism to enter (for an 80+ year-old). Refrigerator (empty). Free auto-brewed coffee available in foyer till 1200 (Buy it at the bar afterward). Monday was my jetlag recovery day spent walking the canal into the city center - about 10 minutes, with a multitude of direction signs back to the hotel! No museums open, of course. Excellent gratis WiFi, printout by sending an email attachment to the reception desk. Conference facilities with remote access facility were satisfactory, lunch sandwiches etc. were good. Evening meal of a wide variety taster plates of Dutch specialties was interesting and slightly overwhelming. A most enjoyable conference, largely helped by the hotel staff. Thank you!

Stayed here in Gouda for one night on our bike trip. After 80km on the bike it was nice to arrive. The staff were friendly. We locked our bikes out back in a secure area. The room was good. Comfy beds. The shower area was precarious. A big step in and slippery when wet. I am not sure everyone could handle that set up if you have any mobility issues. Also no privacy if that matters to you as it opened up into the room. It is an easy walk to the main square where there are lots of restaurants. The hotel is along a canal so very picturesque. Breakfast was ok, standard and included in our rate. I would definitely visit Gouda again!

A very nice hotel, with a locked open air area at the back of the hotel for bicycles. There is work being carried out at the back of the hotel. Our room was good but the shower was in the bath, quite a step out to get over the side. Sorry to say that I was not very impressed with the breakfast. We stayed in six hotels on this trip, the breakfast in Gouda was the worst. Whilst the hotel was one of the yes.

Modern, clean, bright hotel, near the main canal and easy walking distance to pedestrianised town centre. Friendly helpful reception staff. Breakfast choices were rather limited for the price of 15.50 Euros: various breads, a few cheese and meat slices, a couple cereals, yoghurt, juice, hard boiled eggs and little pancakes. But the charge was more than I would wish to pay for just a continental style breakfast - 15.50 Euros. For that price there should have been more hot food, like sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, pancakes, etc. However, the reception and dining room staff were very friendly and helpful, especially when we lost a wallet, telephoning the beer pub for us. The online instructions for parking could be improved by a small detailed notice board on the wall outside next to the appropriate car park entrance, saying "enter this car park section if you are staying at the Best Western Plus." You have to go to the QPark, get a ticket, walk to hotel entrance on that car park level, and go to reception. When you leave with your car (even if temporarily) you get another ticket to enter into the machine along with the first ticket. You do this every time. When you check out, you pay the 10 Euros per day charge, and enter the final "leaving" ticket to get out of the car park. But that was only a small detail. Otherwise a good convenient place to stay.

My wife and I, her parents and their two friends recently visited this beautiful hotel this week. We stayed here as part of our cycling holiday in Amsterdam. After a very very long day cycling we eventually arrived here at 8pm. Firstly, the hotel were able to provide us with a locked space to store our 6 bikes which was a relief! The hotel were very accommodating in reserving us a last minute table at their restaurant at 2115 so we could eat. Our rooms were immaculate, with excellent bath / shower facilities. The rooms were clean, light, spacious and warm. The restaurant was lovely and quiet, excellent service: however, the menu choice was fairly limited, but what we did order was beautiful and served in a timely fashion. We booked for breakfast the following morning and this was an excellent take on the continental breakfast. Plenty of choice, fresh fruits, juices and coffees. We took a quick walk in the morning to Gouda town which took 5minutes and is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

Very centrally located. Safe lock up for our bikes. Spacious, clean and comfortable family room. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Efficient and quick check in and check out. Would definitely stay again.

As usual I will stay at Best Western Gouda whenever I visit my HQ. Overall the quality and standard is what you would expects. But I would suggest if possible English Sports Channel would be great for English speaking guests.

The hotel is very clean and tidy, very simple but not really minimalist. The staff were very nice to us and the breakfast I can say very good. The location is the best as quite near to the old beautiful city centre.....and my office

All you need to have for a business trip. Clean room, design modern furniture, good breakfast and quiet location. Staff is friendly. Good wifi and business oriented. Truly enjoyed staying at this hotel
