“Bad smell from shower drain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were actually not staying in the hotel Old Dutch itself, but sent to another location on 500 mtrs walking distance, called "Dutch Hotel". The service was OK, not too friendly but not rude either. The room was clean, however there was a strong smell of cigarette smoke coming from the curtains, even though it was a smoke-free room. There was also a very strong and bad smell coming from the shower drain.. Overall not the best hotel, but alright to spend one night there.

The hotel is close to the train station and the downtown of Arnhem. The room was equipped with everything we needed.The breakfast is a real breakfast with eggs, ham, breads, jams, cornflakes, juices, tea, coffee, etc. It was great to stay there, and the staff is very friendly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. I had received emails in response to a special request so I felt I knew the staff before my visit. We arrived very late at night and was welcomed by the staff and also received friendly greetings from the people in the lobby/bar. The staff friendliness must be contagious as next morning we were again greeted by friendly guests and staff at breakfast. The breakfast room is the nicest part of the hotel and breakfast was delicious and plentyful.

The staff are very helpful, we lost something in the room and it was returned to us. I was allowed use their laptop and given every assistance.

The stairs are narrow and confusing at first. This is my only negative. The family room that we stayed in was large and comfortable with a nice size TV. The hotel is ideally located for access to public transport and the tourist office. We travelled by bus to the Airbourne Museum and the Open Museum both of which are highly recommended. It may be cheaper to buy tickets at the tourist office than at certain tourist attractions. We walked to the John Frost Bridge (Bridge too far) and took the train to Nijmengen.

We all felt very welcome in this hotel.

This is a decent station hotel, with a lobby that has a bar-like feel. The location is not the most charming in Arnhem, but very convenient for travel and for the city centre. However,being next to the station there's of course a lot of traffic. Light sleepers should ask for a room at the back.
My room was small, but clean and with a bed I found comfortable. There is fast, free Internet (with a plug). The bathroom had a good shower. All in all, it's comfortable enough. My only concern was that the room was a touch cold.
Breakfast was acceptable. Service was how I'd expect it at a hotel like this: friendly with rough edges.
The Old Dutch is fine for a business traveller on a budget.
