The stay was lovely but I felt like the employees were hovering a little too much, like I was always being watched. A bit more distance and privacy would be welcome and I will most certainly ask if I need help with anything :)

I did not know that it was an education Hotel. I found it interesting to see how the students did there very best to service as good as possible, but to recognize that they still have to learn a lot. We had also dinner in the restaurant and were very pleased about the quality of food and the perfect service.

Very nice hotel, with friendly staff. They learn on the job and make a huge effort to give you a high level of hospitality. They might ask more questions than you are used to. And some are more confident than others. But they will help you out with near anything you need. Kitchen is very good and the city centre... More

The location and the room were OK, but I was not very enthousiast about the quality and the diversity offerd at your breakfast buffet. I missed a.o. fresh fruit. The price/quality ratio is not OK regarding this aspect.

Very nice hotel with a private car park right outside. Good location for visiting Leeuwarden, a short walk from the city centre. The young staff which are in training were most helpful and doing their best to make us feel welcome. Spacious, nice room with a view to an atrium garden. Quite a long walk from the reception to the... More

Being a seasoned traveller, it was fortunate that I was pre-warned about the nature of the hotel and told to 'be a bit patient'. Just as well as the check in was more of a practical lesson than anything I had ever encountered before. That stated when you get to my age (51), education of the next generation is something...

I visited Stenden last night and stayed "on-campus" at this student run property. The front desk greeted me warmly and even provided me with an adapter/transformer as I was travelling from another country. Every student staff member I passed said hello and seemed thrilled to have my business. Look forward to returning next year.

The start-point is that you're staying in a real teaching university hotel - I've only one this once before (at Cornell) and did it this time at the recommendation of an alumni... I am glad I did... Reception was excellent - a trainee was on duty and was guided through the process (which felt good), then to our room, which... More
