This small hotel is disguised as an office building and camouflaged by a cinema. They share the building which could not be more convenient for the traveler on foot or bicycle. It faces the town central plaza and park, across the street from the train terminus. There are restaurants and shops all around. The hotel is on the second through... More

I have stayed in the forest hotel a couple if times now and it's a perfect hotel for people who work in the area. The staff are exceptionally friendly and the rooms are ok. The cinema is in the same building which is good if you fancy watching a film. I would recommend this hotel especially if your travelling for... More

This hotel is located in the middle of Den Helder. The town is pretty much shut down after 17:00 every night. It seems to be a stopover on the way to Texel island. I stayed there for about a month and stayed in 3 different rooms. The hotel rooms are a little small, the beds a little on the small... More

This is the second time I've stayed here through work in Den Helder, Rooms are clean & tidy with good sized bath/shower rooms & some rooms come complete with balcony. Unfortunately no tea & coffee making facilities. Wifi in all rooms & restaurant food is off a good quality. Located within close proximity to Den Helder train station & Heliports.

The hotel was a good stop over after a day exploring Texel Island. The hotel is close enough to the train station and walking distance to the island ferry. The staff were nice enough and the hotel was clean.

Hotel is nicely located very close to train and bus station - ideal for exploring Texel island (bus for ferry terminal leaves just the right time so the passengers can catch the ferry). The entrance to hotel is a bit dowdy and stinky (also entrance to large cinema), but when you are in the hotel it is fine. Rooms are... More

Hotel in the center of Den Helder, close to train station and shopping street, supermarket in 40 meters. Renewed bathrooms, got wireless internet in my room. Breakfast was good, dinner also. Good atmosphere in hotel and bar. Will come back for sure. Recommended.
