“Good location, not so good experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

It's in a great location but I found it a bit noisy and the room was not very clean and evrything seemed a bit too old. Overall it was a bit more than 200€ a night, so not the cheapest. I wouldn't repeat.

Room Tip: Try a high floor and a room on the river side, not on Doelen street.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

After a friendly check-in, i came to my room , and was surprised to step back into the 60, the room was so simple and tiny, it felt like i was staying in monastery, a big old TV, with a non working remote contol, the bathroom was clean but so tiny , my shoulders didn't fit the space,and i had to walk sideways to get to the toilet, only one towel, to be honest i felt a little bit depressed in this room, it's been one of the worst i ever stayed in, also the general state of the hotel was a disapointment, damaged walls, falling wallpapers, this hotel is in no way a 4 stars, it felt more like a two stars, be aware, and the price wasn't even that great, 89 euros for one night,without breakfast, never again

Room Tip: Book another hotel, unless you like retro,with a run down look

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Spent a weekend here. The staff very very good and the breakfast was a good start to the day, with excellent variety. Something for everybody.
The rooms were good and clean, but as others have stated it is a little tired. We were on the 5th floor and there is only one small lift, which is a little small and very slow.From here we walked to the station, Anne Franks House and the Museum quarter. None of the walks took more than 20mins. It was a little noisy at night, due to motorists who couldn't keep their hands off the horn and several instances off emergency vehicle alarms going for several minutes.

NH Doelen is a lovely hotel and I would describe it as faded elegance now it is very easy to visit most places from here and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful on the whole the room was a bit dark needs better lighting but was clean and good bathroom plenty of hot water.Cannot comment on food because we thought the breakfast were quite expensive so had breakfast elsewhere.Would like to visit again when a soft refurbishment had been undertaken.Matress very soft and need replacing rooms at the back better over looking the canal but quite a bit of shouting late at night from two bars opposite 2'oclock this morning Friday night !!

the reception staff were friendly but the hotel was in no way a four star. the hotel room was dirty and dated. location was good but the staff were trying to up sell on arrival and then only had to offer what was refused at the proposed up-sell. very poor value for money and would not use again. at best a 2.5 star is how it should be rated and should not be getting the rating it has. if it was a longer stay would have cut losses and argued with travel agent on return.

NH Doelen is in a fantastic location and the staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful I've ever come across!

The hotel is however due a soft refurbishment, but definitely not a reason to dismiss it.
