“Decent place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I thought the room was pretty good. Big TV, comfy beds, quite spacious, nice furniture, fittings and decor and very modern bathroom. Good location near the Grote Markt. Decent wifi connection in room (but not perfect) and a decent breakfast as well, served in Bagel and Beans restaurant (which offers good lunches and snacks at affordable prices). Good amount of tea/coffee made available in room also.

Charming place in the heart of Nijmegen
I stayed in de Prince for a 5 days and I would stay there again if visiting Nijmegen. The B&B is very centrally located - on one of the main streets of the old town, walking distance to shops, museums, parks and the river Waal. This B&B is located in 3 or 4 old houses, and the reception (and breakfast) is in the Bagels and Beans bistro. I enjoyed my room that was quiet with a very good bed, tea and coffee making facilities, tv and wi-fi. Room was very big and bright.
Room 22 and 21 are located on the top floor that means climbing VERY steep stairs, but I don't mind that.
The breakfast was good - bagels, cheese, ham, jam and of course coffee and orange juice.
The bagels&beans staff was very nice and friendly but also very slow - it was usually only one person from 8 till 9, so if you think you'll eat a breakfast in 20 minutes add en extra 20 ...
Beside that I really enoyed my stay and would come again!

We stayed at De Prince for three nights and we would probably go there again. The room was quite large and charming, if you like Buddha's (as I do), with a good bed, tea and coffee making facilities etc. And it is in a very central location. We really liked the breakfast at Bagels and beans, with organic products, fruit and great coffee, and several newspapers at your disposal.
Still I would not recommend this B. and B. to everyone as a personal touch is missing. You are served by different young women each morning, and nobody asks if you have any questions or requests. If you ask for something you do get it though. But as the young girls are clearly not the owners, we did not express our small suggestions: e.g. some more hooks in the wall for coats and for towels in the bathroom.
This place is great if you like your privacy and if you are not shy to speak up.

I stayed the the B&B De Prince during this year's 4 day walk. The room was extremely small but thankfully I wasn't spending much time in the room, It was away from the coffee shop but not that far to walk. The room was small but clean and modern, but it was a heck of a lot of steep stairs to climb up and down The breakfast was OK it was a small and the coffee was decent.The staff was friendly but maybe all hung over. Not the worse place but wouldn't want to have to share the space as part of a couple.

I was at the B&B De Prince during this year's Vierdaagse Mars van Nijmegen. The room I got was in an old but very good renovated and maintained building. The room itself was small but very clean, modern and cozy. The breakfast was a small but very good buffet. For this price I paid (around 60,00 EUR per night + a small local tourist tax) I would stay here again!

WARNING concerning parking in the city area of Nijmegen!
The only problem is the parking in this area. The B&B has no own parking lot so you have to park in the streets around the B&B. Watch carefully the parking signpostings where you can park and where not because this is mostly not clearly posted (!!!) and the City of Nijmegen is only waiting for international tourists / visitors to put them a parking ticket with a huge fine on the front shield of their cars! Yes that's true! They do that only on cars with a non-Dutch-license plate!
If in doubt take pictures of the parking signpostings where you park as proof that you are not parking false! The City of Nijmegen prefers to give parking tickets also if parking signposting is not clear and therefore in doubt for the visitor! If you should get a parking ticket go directly to an lawyer and let him "fight" against this ticket!

The meaning of a room with a private bathroom in this B&B can mean having the use of the laundry room with a shower and WC on the opposite side of the corridor of the room. Unconventional arrangement to say the least, and not at all private. This would be acceptable if the room would be described more honestly.The hotel staff (not responsible for the marketting of rooms) is very friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts are good. Good location too.

This B&B has several locations in the same street. My advice is to only book one night - T&C require 3 full days notice if you want to cancel. So if you enjoy your first night...stay on! But if you get single room no. 5 in the building above the bagel cafe, you'll find your WC and shower on the other side of the corridor where you share your ablutions with dirty laundry and the B&B's washing machine and drier. Not good value for 50+ euros - my advice? Drive on!

Room Tip: Be certain you want to stay here: 3 days notice required if you want to cancel...and if you stay in...
