I read many of the other reviews and thought that this hotel may be a little different with a different type of feel. Let me start with something positive by saying that the staff working here are very nice and helpful. One problem is that they are rarely there. The hotel is not staffed during the day and at night.... More

After a couple of rough experiences on Booking.com, I gave it a last chance: I was in a hurry to book a hotel for a work meeting, and used the website again, hoping to get at least not too disappointed with the option I would get. Walking distance from the place where I had scheduled my meeting: that's all I... More

Old Style building and old style service ie; genuine and excellent. Manager is fantastic.. waited until our late arrival (23:30) and still greeted us with a genuine welcoming smile....not the 'plastic' type that you get with "Have a nice day" Excellent value for money. I had room No. 2 which overlooked the rear garden...very peaceful Would have preferred it if... More

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. There is lots of history at this hotel, going back to the philosopher Erasmus after which the hotel was named. Rooms were fine, aged but that is the theme of the hotel. The internet was fast, additional charge of 5 euro. Location was excellent - in the city centre and a few minutes walk... More

Former rich people's house, in nice old style and furniture. Walk out of the hotel and you are smack in the center of town near the Gravensteen castle. Friendly reception. Clean and hygienical hotel and rooms, and ample bath and shower. Parking garages at a hundred meters walking distance for eleven euro per 24 hours. Breakfast is somewhat simple, but... More

We had the pleasure to stay here last week via WeekendjeWeg. Booked last-minute at 69.00 euro for a double room. The hotel is very centrally located, but still tucked away from the busy city center. We felt very welcome by the friendly and highly professional staff. This hotel oozes charm, warmth and character with it's high ceilings, old floors and... More

This is a nice old-fashioned hotel, different from most other hotels. Charm and character, and it has got everything you really need. I would like to highlight the very helpful service. I arrive *really* late at 1am: no problem. I lost my e-ticket and asked them to please print a replacement: no problem. I left really early, and asked for... More

First as others said it is not as in their picture on the canal but up the street two blocks from the canal and bridge into the old town and is across from another hotel. The first night we were put up in the attic room with two beds it was chilly when we arrived and turned the registers up... More

This hotel is not your typical glass and chrome hotel. If you fancy something a little different then you should try this hotel. Think wood floors, wooden stairs and big pieces of wooden furniture. This hotel is actually a very old house. The bedroom I stayed in (room 2) was very large, very comfortable and contained a wardrobe that resembled... More

We were not happy with this hotel. It is a two star hotel and that should have warned us. The room was large but the furnishings were not comfortable, especially the bed. The bath was also only fair. We would not return here. The block it is located on is creepy at night and the noise level was higher that... More
