As I had very little cash in euros left and was unable to find a hotel in Eindhoven willing to let me pay on check out with my card which was due to have more cash in it the next day, my choice of an overnight stopover before heading back up north was very limited. So this was in my 50euro price range. I knew by the ratings online that it would be basic and so I didn't expect anything sophisticated and it certainly wasn't. But after a weekend of music festival camping it was certainly better than that. So here's the bad points -
The stairs to get up to the rooms are very steep. I tripped on them going up them so wouldn't recommend this hotel if you can't handle stairs.
The bathroom was shared and when I first looked into it someone had left their hairy wet towel on the floor. The toilet also shared had very little toilet roll and ran out fast without being replaced.
You can hear a lot of noise from other guests moving around as the walls are thin.
The breakfast is very poor in choice. I had bread with jam as that was really all there was that I liked.
The rooms are very basic.
Now the good points -
There was a sink and mirror in my room so I didn't need to use the shared shower. I could wash down at the sink.
The towels and linen were clean.
The tv worked well.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
So basically if you're looking for somewhere cheap to just lay your head for the night that isn't perfect but is at least a warm place to stay then this is it. If you want luxury then don't bother.
