After a Ryanair flight from Porto to Eindhoven on New Year's Eve, we stayed at this hotel for that night on our way to Amsterdam. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Eindhoven central train station, which made it very convenient.
We had to wait a few minutes to do the check-in but we were then very well received by a young lady receptionist, Simone. She was very attentive and friendly and told us everything that was happening that night in the city of Eindhoven. Top class receptionist! Next day we also got in contact with the manager, Roger, and were pleased as well. Great staff!
The hotel is a little bit mazy (never been at a hotel before where you had to walk for about a minute from the check-in desk to the elevators), and very business-oriented, but we found it very good nonetheless. It has good facilities and design, free tea and coffee for everyone, as well as other nice perks. The pool is classy, but it could have a little more diversified offering on the spa front. We can't comment on the breakfast as it was really expensive, as commented here before.
The room we stayed in was big enough and the bed was a wonder. Best bed I slept in, no doubt. Big and very, very comfortable. The TV had some interesting hotel-related features. As for the air conditioner, we had no problem with it whatsoever.
Why not a 5-star rating? (1) There was some smell of cigarette smoke near the lobby, as there is a smoking room there. (2) Indoor heated pool was cooler than expected. (3) We had to pay a city tax of 7€ for one night that we had no idea about at the check-out time. Not the hotel's fault, but it should be included in the price beforehand.
We arrived at around 17h at Eindhoven and left in the morning, so we barely got to see the city in daylight. At night it started to rain a lot so we didn't get out as much as we would have liked. The city doesn't look like something special, but we can't really comment too much on that. It is basically a Philips city. Everywhere you look, there are Philips signs, the statues you see are from members of the Philips company, the trademark buildings are Philips and even the football club and its stadium are Philips.
