To get more than one foreign TV channel and wireless internet on your room, you have to buy the full porn-package. Together with a poor restaurant, worse parking situation for high fees and a very noisy location, my conclusion is that there are better places to stay in lovely Breda.

Stayed here on a business trip, nice hotel with a nice restaurant and bar with great proximity to the park and the center of Breda for more restaurants and shops.

Let down by absence of bar staff for drinks in evening often waiting for 10 minutes for someone to show up which was annoying. Also a tad irritating having to pay for British speaking channels on TV as most European hotels have a limited selection for free

A few problems with twin rooms and staff not being able to think for themselves but very comfortable and good food. Very nice location, as in close to bus station and short walk to the town and good on site parking but get there early.

The hotel was okay.
But as customers of the hotel restaurant we were very disappointed with the food overall. The meat was dry even if it was rare because it was wrongly flavored and you never cut a steak in slices before serving, it makes any steak dry regardless the cooking time.
The pasta should contain herbs and truffle and none of them came trough in taste. The vegetables in the pasta was raw and the whole dish was studded with gratin cheese.
And it's very misleading that you use the generic name mushrooms for champignon due many would expect chanterells or any other "wild mushrooms" for that price.
As we sat there three other customers complained and the waiter bothered to argue against the fact that the meat was badly preformed.

Seems sadly to charge 18 euro for a dish we could have cooked better our selves.

The hotel is nice. However, when I got there, they gave me a room with a huge water laeak.
After I change room, this new one had the heating on (it's summer), and it was not controlable in the room. So after one hour it was "breadable" inside the room.
Also in the reception gave us a internet password to the the room but forgot to inform that the internet had a cost of 9.90€.

Dear Alvaro Andre,

Thank you for your review on tripadvisor. For us the reviews are very important to review the service and product we provide to our guests.

We find it pleasant to hear that you liked our hotel and are very sorry that there were some complications with both of the rooms you stayed in.

We will make sure that we inform our staff to communicate better about the internet costs. We do offer free WIFI in our lobby area but unfortunately we have paid WIFI in our hotelrooms.

We hope that the next time you visit Breda you will stay with us so we can exceed your expectations.

Kind regards,
