Learned at check-in that after 6 pm you have to ring the bell and wait some minutes. Evening entrance and elevator not impressive. Room small but have all basics and were really clean. Comfortable bed and room facing back side really quiet. Breakfast was a great experience, beautiful presented and really fresh. just out the main door is a market... More

We went here in appparently the bussiest weekend of the year. Hotel has a good location but was way over priced. We had a very small room, and terrible beds. Breakfast was good. Hotel is in a very old building so high ceilings and old interiors.

Lovely, quaint hotel. Convenient location and helpful and friendly staff. Visited over St Paulusfeesten Festival, which I would definitely recommend. Breakfast was simple but all that was required. Over all a super stay. Would possibly suggest they invested in air con for more humid evenings but this is the only negative I could possibly find.

This is an average hotel. The room was very small room and the bathroom was tiny. Also it wasn't perfectly clean and the window was broken. (Room 303) Great breakfast though. Location is fine. Ok for 1 night but I don't think I'll return.

the location of this botique hotel is awesome. The staff very friendly and a nice breakfast. In the room was everything available what you needed. The rooms were rather small and clean. The only thing I can say about the room is that it needed a little paint. I would go the again8

My husband and I stayed in this boutique hotel for one night. The room ( number 402 ) is situated on the fourth floor. But it's a room which is connected to another room by a door that you can " luckily " close. We heard every word of our neighbours, which is very uncomfortable. Also the noises of the... More
