“Great, comfortable hotel in the Museum Quarter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The hotel is on a lovely leafy street in the Old South near the museum quarter, just down the road from a tram stop that reguarly runs between the Zuid station (for access to the Airport) and Central Station. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The rooms were slightly on the small size as mentioned in other reviews, however they were not in my opinion too small- our room was more than adequate, well appointed with a lovely bathroom and a nice view over the courtyard.
If you're looking for something in a quiet location this hotel is highly recommended!

Nice hotel but too far from the heart of the city. Wi fi is not free, strange for a 4 star hotel.
Bed confortable but with a separation in the middle...not really nice for couples.
Not expansive because of a special offer.
Good for a business trip but not for a romantic week end.

Our 3 night stay was very uncomfortable, bed and room way too small for what is meant to be a 4 star hotel. I'd not stay here again and advice you to pick a different place if you can.

Oh, important ps. The free internet is limited to 256kbps (ancient speed) unless you pay, same for free tv channels, not even bbc 1.. you had to pay for that...

I highly recommend this hotel for people looking for quiet, its located in very calm street where no tram passing through, however its very close to the tram station around 2 minutes walking where you can easily take tram no16 and go to dame square, it's 15 minutes walking from Rai which is very good for people coming for exhibitions, it has no good scenery, and the rooms is very small, but for one person will be ok

Booked a double room for Eur. 175.00 per night for 5 nights....The least i can describe the situation is dissapointing. I am in a very small room with no view, i hear the slightest movement on the corridor and 2 people can not move easily in the room at the same time.
The fact that the reception is helpful doesn't help much if you take into account that with the money i have paid i could easily book a 4 star hotel. Unacceptable!!! Avoid it!!!
