While everybody raves about the bar on top, I have to tell you that in my opinion it it one butt-ugly hotel in a not so great location. Would not be a place I would like to stay.

Being near the RLD, CS, and the cruise docks, probably not hurting for business as evidenced by their paltry offer.

Have never stayed there but don't think I would ever make an attempt. Kind of like the Marriott at LaGuardia.

Matty, I am a bit confused.

You stayed there and had a bad experience? And because of this bad experience they offered you a room at 199 euros?

That receptionist should be fired.

P.s. have you tried confronting them via Twitter? Companies tend to reply VERY fast and apologetic in that very public medium.

I can imagine. What a sad narrow minded person that must have been who works there.

I have to say though, I thorougly enjoy going to Nespresso in posh PC Hooftstraat on my rickety noisy old bike, in my second hand clothes and flip flops, and buy a whole load of expensive coffee :-) But at least the staff there is always friendly no matter what you look like.

The Amrath is a much more appealing looking hotel.
