    Lovely staff, great hotel to visit Retropop
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Deluxe Double Room with Bath
    • Stayed 2 nights

    There was no airconditioning in the room. Because it was really warm, it was hard to sleep. The room could be noisy because it was close to the elevator and were chatting near it. I missed an electrical socket close to the bed, so I couldn't charge my phone while I was lying. I missed tea bags. There were holes in the curtain, which made me worry there were moths in the room (and you don't want to take those home). The surroundings were slightly depressing. The price was high, but that was because of Retropop.

    I really liked the staff, they super friendly and took their time to help me. I liked the bathroom, it had a big bath tub. The room was clean and had a Nespresso machine. The location is okay, not too far from the city centre and Wildlands. They have a nice selection of bikes, including Ebikes (I rented an Ebike to go to the music festival Retropop, which was ideal). The environment is ideal for cycling. I liked the bed. There was actually a fire alarm in the middle of the night, on the first night. The slow whoop and flashing were very effective and the hotel dealed with the issue quickly and informed us quickly too. I had breakfast one morning, it was good, they had a lot of options, but the price was a bit steep.

    Bathroom Hairdryer-Very Basic! ( I don't know why Hotels still bother with these in-built hairdryer units,as they are not to any use)... View when you seat outside in the tables to have your drink-Just a huge car park! (Should be really covered with some bushes to give some ambiance)

    Breakfast was very heartsome! Shower was good and so was the TV. Proximity to the RetroPop 2017 Concert Venue. Well Soundproof Rooms. Good Housekeeping Service!

    Not much really. The hotel feels a little dated and no tea or coffee in the rooms. Double beds seem to be the standard Dutch style of two single beds pushed together. Might've fallen down the gap once or twice.

    The breakfast was delicious and the staff super helpful, the baby cot was nice and clean and looked so comfortable I wanted to sleep in there. Bed was super comfy and the room nice and cosy Poffertjes for breakfast!!! And bacon, good scrambled eggs and lovely coffee. I want to go back again just for the breakfast!

    One thing that stood out - Instead of normal toilet paper rolls, in the room's toilet they put stacks of separate sheets, more like tissue papaer. Very uncomfortable and unacceptable in a hotel.
