We are just back from a weeks stay at the Doelen.
Upon arrival the staff were very friendly and allowed us an early check-in which was much appreciated since we had been flying all night. I should mention that I had emailed the hotel prior to our arrival and asked for an upgrade to a canal view room and they responded with an email saying there would be a 25 Euro upcharge per day which I declined. We were pleasantly surprised to be allocated a canal view room even though we did not pay the upcharge.
The bathroom was well appointed and clean. The walls could of used a little paint and yes some of the furniture is scratched or marked. The rooms are in dire need of air condtioning as we slept with our window open every night along with the little fan going. The hotel has character and a great location. We did not buy a transit pass, just walked everywhere but did take a cab from Central Station with our luggage. Restaurants near by that I would recommend: Cafe Du Jardin (next door), La Place and Pasta Pasta (red light district).
We left our camera on a bus tour and the staff assisted us with retriving it from the tour company. They always asked what your plans for the day were and assisted with any directions or reservations you required.
I give this hotel an average rating due to the tired rooms. The maid cleaned the room each day but the bathtub was never cleaned during our stay.
