We stayed in a standard room, but it was very luxurious. Dinner was very good, lots of small dishes to choose from, nice sashimi. Drinks were included, which... More

Nice design and new furniture etc. Friendly stuff. Issue with the payments which have been made in advance. Also nobody cared about cleaning floor and toilet nor changing pillow cases ... Bed smelled used and looked wrinkly on the pillow cases. Floor had pretty big dried water spots. Little brown left overs on the inside edge of the toilet. Toilet... More

We have stayed in this hotel regularly, the last time in November 2014. It is a very pleasant hotel, spacious rooms and a big bathroom. Breakfast is excellent. When in Holland and in that neighbourhood we will stay there again. Prices are reasonable.

I was here during my business trip and wished to have similar hotels for this kind of trips always! The room was great (big, nice interior and a big bath), the food was delicious (breakfast and dinner). This is clearly a hotel that I would book as well for a trip with my partner!

My room (14th floor) was huge, tastefully decorated and clean, as was my bathroom. The hotel bar offers drinks at reasonable prices and the restaurant is as huge as its menu... More

I have been several times in this hotel for business. The rooms are good, clean and wide enough. Breakfast is good with good variety of food. Dinner place is comfortable, menu is reasonable good but not very sophisticated. The quality is ok but average, not excellent.
