The hotel was very clean and fairly modern. Our room was good, however, right at front of hotel and very noisy. No soap in bathroom so how do we wash our hands after using the toilet!!! Also advised kitchen closed at 9pm, at 8.10pm we requested some food and told kitchen was closed. Had to really stand our ground to... More

Booked really last minute, friendly reception, small room with no room to put away clothes, nice bathroom but when showering the toilet and got wet and the floor was soaked (no curtain) but the worse are the beds which are way to soft which killed my back!

Just sweltered all night and even with two massive window open couldnt get cool, and then had noise to factor in, plus the mosquitoes had a field... More

The bed is so soft i may as well have slept on a pile fo cushions so i slept very poorly. In hot weather the room was uncomfortably hot, and there is no air conditioning or fan available. I... More

High 20s and humid. No aircon in rooms. Window open. Eaten alive by mosquitos! Sweaty and tormented. Shame as great location and friendly staff. I would however visit again when not summer and had repellent with me. Be prepared.

(Was told by the chef, "if I didn't like the noise they would call the police and get the bar shut".....30 minutes to... More

We really enjoyed the hotel. Problem there is no parking . In summer on the weekend leave your windows closed. Lots of noise from all the people on the street. Breakfast is good and there is always enough.

Unfortunately the weather was very bad when I visited Alkmaar and it was in the middle of the week, so when I arrived at the hotel it was dark, wet and quiet. It is situated in the old centre near shops, restaurants and even a cinema all within easy walking distance. It looked very nice and I hope I get... More

This hotel is situated in the city centre of Alkmaar with direct access to restaurants, the cinema and the pubs. The hotel is located in in an old post office which has been used as inspiration for all the decorating in the hotel and the name of the restaurant. The rooms are modern decorated and of good quality. But I... More
