Spent one night at this hotel, on a business trip. The hotel is very average, there is not much more to say. The Food is oki - the rooms are oki. But there is nothing to lift it above the feeling of average.

Having stayed at some other hotels for recent visits, it was nice to be back at the Van der Valk. Nice refurbished room and decent food in the restaurant. Downside is it is on the outskirts of Assen and a lengthy walk to the centre

The room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and spacious. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and had a wide variety of options. Staff was helpful and friendly. We would definetely stay here again.

Stayed a couple of times with the Vandervalk Assen. Value for money as described by previous reviewers. Spacious rooms, overall cleanliness is good. Tapestry in the hall shows wear, might need to be refurbished in the near future. Staff is friendly but needs to step it up. It's the little things that make (or break) a stay; being told off...

i gave stayed at this many times because business brings me to Assen at least once a quarter and often more than that. The hotel is comfortable with clean rooms. Most of them have been updated and they are nice rooms. The staff is excellent; helpful and courteous. I usually eat dinner in the bar because I can get the... More

Visit Assen regularly and always stay here. The quality of service and the very spacious and well furnished rooms is second to none. Both bar and restaurant serve excellent food and staff are exceptionally friendly.

In general, staying in a van der Valk hotel, usually means Value for Money! Stayed in this hotel for the first time, was nicely surprised about the rate for an executive room (last minute rate including breakfast for less than EUR 90), a very LARGE room wit nice bathroom. Advantage is, that hotel part is separated from the public area... More

So I just ordered room service. Wish breakfast was included for the 100 euro price. This hotel has an older section and a newer section. Pay the... More
