“The pictures are somewhat misleading, but the hotel is nice by European standards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I stayed at this property while on business for 3 nights in room 147 a queen bedded room.

PRO's+

Clean
Good Service
room size larger than others I've seen
Very good food
Nice, functional shower

The town is beautiful and I would encourage walking around in the evening near the canals. Beware of rabid bikers.

CON's

Small TV
small work desk with hard chair is not compatible for long stretches on laptop
Finicky internet
Mediocre bed, left side very soft, average pillows

Overall I would rate this room 85/100 some noises creep through the walls, but overall the room is often quiet. I would consider staying here again in the future.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I stayed at the Oranje Hotel on business with my son and daughter on the evening of Tuesday 1st October leaving on Thursday 3rd October. The location is in almost central Leeuwarden and as we arrived by car we were surprised to find that the hotel underground car park was full. We then had to park in the street behind the hotel where amazingly parking charges continue until 10pm in the evening from 8am in the morning. Even more strange is that the maximum stay in the street is 3 hours during the payment period. The hotel itself is excellent and we dined on the evening in the hotel restaurant enjoying the delicious Mustard Cream Soup. Then for main course we enjoyed various items from the mix and match menu. This was a very nice way of trying an assortment of dishes at very reasonable prices.
At breakfast the offerings were excellent from Continental to Cooked Breakfast and a very good variety with excellent coffee.
Also the rooms were very clean and modern and mine even had a balcony overlooking the front street although some would not like this due to the traffic noise from early morning

Room Tip: We were located on the first floor and both rooms were first class.

We recently stayed at the Oranje Hotel in Leeuwarden on our travels through the Netherlands. What beautiful accomodations! The staff were professional and friendly, and the entire property was clean, modern and well kept. We also enjoyed the variety and quality of the breakfast buffet. It was exceptional!

Conveniently located opposite the railwaystation and at the edge of the old (and surprisingly charming) city centre, spacious room (ours could host 2 persons plus dog), clean, breakfast OK, but what struck me most was the hospitality, pro-active attitude and competence of (Wouter and Stefanie of) the Front Desk.

we have been travelling for 3 months in Europe and this Hotel surpasses the rest. The Staff are wonderful, friendly and warm, nothing was a problem. Asked if we could have a walk in shower and it was done within a few days as we stayed for 3 weeks. It was right opposite the railway station. With FREE wifi, all you had to do was connect and you stayed connected. No having to put in codes every day. The food was great, you could have as much or little as you liked. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and cleaning was spot on and very quiet. If we could give this hotel 12 out 10 we would.

Would definitely come back if we again travel overseas. Lovely, and well done everyone. Thanks for a great time.

Geachte Travel_CG83,

Wat een fijne reactie dat uw verblijf naar wens is geweest! Een mooi compliment!

Uit uw reactie begrijp ik dat uw kamer niet aan uw eisen heeft voldaan. Dit betreuren wij dan ook ten zeerste. De badkamers in ons hotel dienen ten alle tijde aan de schoonmaak voorschriften die ons hotel hanteert te voldoen, echter hebben wij hieraan dit maal niet kunnen voldoen.

Uw feedback dat u hebt gedeeld met in uw beoordeling wordt meegenomen naar de afdeling van de huishouding en wordt besproken in teambesprekingen, om ervoor te zorgen dat ons team nog beter kan functioneren in alle situaties.

Wij hopen u uiteraard nogmaals te mogen verwelkomen in ons hotel waarin wij ervoor kunnen zorgen dat uw volgende verblijf helemaal conform de eisen voldoen!

Met vriendelijke groet,
