    The stairs, but we were announced that the stairs are Dutch ones. And they are! But who can change this? :)

    We enjoyed a lot the breakfast. One of the most healty breakfast in this kind of accomodation. Sometimes, even at 4* I couldn't find so many fruits at breakfast! I think there were more than 10 different fruits. And the employees very kind and helpful.

    The only negative aspect is as follows: The shower was extremely comfortable but I missed a grab handle when in the shower in case I slip, but more important (for me), is a handle for stepping out of the shower with partially dry feet.

    The breakfast was excellent and sufficient.

    I don't know how they could get round this but.... When the TV in the room was put on standby at night the blue light eminatting from the bottom of the TV frame was so bright it lit up the room and disturbed my sleep. I covered the tv with my coat which sorted the issue.

    The room. The cleanliness of the premises. The breakfast. The helpful staff. The central location. Ease to get there using planes trains and buses.

    The pillows are pretty big and uncomfortable. It is very noisy (you can hear the people in other rooms and on the stairs/hallway).

    Very friendly staff. Our room was upgraded for the same prize and we didn't even ask for it. The location is amazing and very convenient transportation-wise. We got a bag of peppermints and a pen at the check-out.
