“Band of Brothers Tour 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

During a two week tour that followed in the footsteps of the HBO Series "Band of Brothers", we stayed at the "Golden Tulip Hotel" in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. This hotel is located in a beautiful wooded area above and away from city noise. The staff was very friendly and extremely accommodating to all request. The atmosphere was reminiscent of an earlier, quieter and more relaxed era. A beautiful setting, wonderful, clean, neat accommodations and great food. A thoroughly warm, inviting and enticing facility.

Room Tip: Room numbering can be "Very" confusing. Best to get a map and directions to your room at...

This was our favorite hotel on our Beyond Band of Brothers Tour, we had skylights and a suite quite by accident which we adored! The grounds are spacious and beautiful and the restaurant, bar and playroom(ping pong, pool, etc) downstairs was great.

Breakfast is quite ok. And if you are there by car, the hotel is in nice and quiet area.

They have internet where you have to type in a code you get at the reception every 24 hours. It doesn't work that well and I don't understand why you have to type in the code when there is nothing around the hotel so no one could really steal the wifi.

When it was raining outside we couldn't have our windows open, because the staff came and explain in Dutch that we should close the windows.

Also there is no AC and it can be quite hot.

Lovely hotel set in parkland in the leafy suburbs of Nijmegen. Four star public areas including bars, terrace, reception and restaurant. The rooms are four star in size and facility, but a little tired in places, as were the corridors. Wonderful views and great value for money.
Pleasant staff who assisted our journeys into and out of Nijmegen centre, which is approx 3 miles away, served by a good 20 min bus route, the stop being a 150m walk from reception. Offered value bicycle hire, (the local fascination), altogether a healthy environment, with alcoholic drinks and food reasonably priced for the not so healthy.

Room Tip: If you like woodland walks around your hotel without being away from civilisation, you couldn't...

We have been there now two times and each time we are surprised about the fact that the personell in this hotel do not really treat their guests as guests. We are only necessary for getting an income.The location is great, the hotelrooms are good, but asking for a drink in the bar or wanting service on the terrace with the beautifull views is clearly an effort.We had dinner nearby at a small restaurant called Tante Koosje and there you can have a great dinner and feel a very friendly atmosphere.

I booked this hotel on hotels.com. The blurb says that all rooms have tub and shower and flat-screen tv with cable. They don't. The public areas are well maintained and modern. But my room was like something from the early seventies, shabby and dim. The hotel seems to want to come across as world-class but even for the very small menu there is no English translation. And it's a good walk on unlit roads with no footpath if you want to visit the nearest restaurants in Beek. The only upsides are that the staff are friendly, the breakfast was ok and the often-empty bar is beautiful.
