Van der Valek is your choice if you want to be located near TT Assen circuit. it's only 10 min drive from the circuit, and about 5 min drive from the centre of Assen. The price/quality ratio is very good. they often offer deals like 3 nights stay for as low as 55€/night. i will come back to this hotel.

expensive and nice rooms, spacy and luxury. Placed in the middle of nowhere if you want to walk get a rental bike, nowhere to walk away. Car is a must. Restorant is good, stuff friendly but behaved as every wanabe rich hotel-formated. For this area not a bad choice, but away from unque experience.

What a superb hotel, a lot larger than i thought. Our room was huge with a huge bathroom (standard room) with a outside balcony with chairs and tables to sit at over a nice green area which was quiet. We had room service food and it was great, very prompt and polite. We asked if we could hire bicycles at... More

We got to the hotel a little early but it was no problem.The friendly and professional receptionist found us a room and so were able to change into our cycling... More

Very large room with a small space to sit outside. Free wifi. Functioning and quite silent airco. Large bathroom with bath and separate shower. Good bed, slept very well. Service friendly and efficient. Very clean. Filled mini bar. Absolutely value for money.

The Van der Valk hotel group are all over Holland and provide most major towns and cities with comfortable and I would suppose affordable hotel rooms to a very high standard. The hotel in Assen is more functional than funky and although all the meals I ate there were of a good standard with large portions it is certainly not... More

We chose this hotel because it's central to discover a major part of Friesland. It's next to the A28 motorway and a 15-20 minutes drive to Groningen. The hotel is real big and with a huge parking area. Disabled people have reserved parking close to the reception, otherwise you have to make a long walk. Check-in was fast and staff... More

Over the years we have stayed in many van der Valk Hotels and we have very rarely been disappointed. The brand has improved a lot over the years athough there are quite some differences between the new ones and the old ones, so to say. Assen is a good mix of old and new. The older part is well maintained... More
