i travel to Alkmaar frequently, usually stay with my Aunt. However now she is in a nursing home I need to stay in a Hotel. I won't be staying in this one again. The room I had was tiny and cramped at the top of a flight of extremely steep stairs with a very tight turn into my room. I thought I was going to fall a couple of times, taking my luggage up was a nightmare. The room was very basic twin beds and a wardrobe, No dressing table or bedside table, had to use the spare bed for all my things. toilet and shower were tiny too, no towel rail or hairdrier. Towels were soft and clean though. The room was stifling hot even with the window and door open(the door wasn't meant to be opened.) The room was on view to all the neighbours and I had to keep the curtains shut for some privacy, there were not blinds or nets, the room was so small you couldn't avoid being in front of the window, There was no safety deposit box either.The week-end I was there the hotel lounge was shut Friday Saturday and Sunday nights. It was a holiday week-end and the hotel was fully booked, there were a lot of hotel guests milling about outside at night and couldn't believe the lounge was closed. Neither could I, there was no chance for a sit down and a chat to relax.
Good points are the staff are nice, the hotel lounge is lovely, The hotel is conveniently placed for transport links. All in all the room I was in was not wotrth the money. I don't know about the other rooms, But I think they need to up their game quite a bit before I would be back.
