Hotel Zandbergen was not at all like I pictured it. In large part because we were only in the hotel room for a very short period of time. You see, there was a mixup. We had asked for a "cot", an extra bed, as there was three of us going to stay in the same room. Well "cot" means crib in Europe apparently. And we were three fully grown adults. Due to being fully booked there wasn't many options for us.
Now this is where the Hotel Zandbergen has a gem up it's sleeve. They also operate an apartment next door and for 30euro more a night it could be ours. Being 9pm at night we were open to anything other than sleeping on the floor. So we took them up on the offer. Low and behold we walked into a spacious, two floor, two bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 spare room, 1 entertainment room, 1 full size kitchen jaw dropping amazing apartment.
We were absolutely speechless the entire time we were there. This place was huge and an amazing treat (besides the weird 70's style wallpaper in one of the bedrooms).
The only bad thing was the main level bedroom had windows that opened onto a rather busy street. You could hear cars til 1am.
I would be open to staying there again let's just say that. :)
