I really enjoyed this hotel overall, but there was one perplexing thing: they are currently under renovation and booked us in a room adjacent to where they were doing HEAVY construction.
Why put customers in what seemed like a not very full hotel in a room like that? When the construction began with a bang at 7am sharp, we called the desk to see if they could delay the workers for a few minutes so that we could shower and get out. They were working with very loud tools on the other side of the wall in the bathroom, making it a near deafening experience to shower. Honestly, it sounded like the wall could give way at any second.
The desk couldn't stop the workers, but they did offer to move us (we declined as we were only staying one more day and had to get up quite early), and gave us vouchers for free breakfast for the duration of our stay. That was a very nice gesture. And that's just the thing, the staff at this hotel was BEYOND accommodating and helpful. Kelly was the woman at the desk we spoke to the most, and she was simply wonderful. But why even put us in that room to begin with? Perplexing.
Beyond that, no complaints. Excellent location with a tram right in front of the hotel and a wonderful spot for food and drinks across from that - De Biertuin. Breakfast was solid, rooms clean, generally great neighborhood out of the majority of the tourist bustle. Would easily stay here again.
