“Great hotel but lousy beds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This is a new hotel that opened a week ago so all was perfect in that sense. Great location by Arena and Ziggo Dome for staying after events. Plenty of (paid) parking and nice breakfast buffet. Rooms are a bit small but well decorated and furnished. However, biggest disappointment was the bed. Not only small for 2 persons but very hard so very uncomfortable. Why does a new hotel not have very comfortable beds? Result a bad night rest and we will not stay there again unless they have softer beds.

I had a late booking for the PLMA exhibition and there was not many hotel rooms left. This property was on the right side of the town and just a few stations away from the exhibition area. The hotel is really fresh and close to subway and railway (5 minutes’ walk). From the airport it is just about 15 minutes by train. The location itself is close to the Arena and the area is filed up with office buildings.

The service was excellent and a very welcoming and friendly staff. The room size is what you could expect in this Express concept, small but nice. I was on the top floor overlooking the country side in distance and it was very quiet. The standard room is ok for one persona but the bed could be small for two person. The bed was equipped with four pillows of various softness, but too hard for my taste.

The fire alarm went off at 24.00 and 06.00. Of course it’s nothing that happening al the time. The breakfast is also what you could expect from till Express concept. There is a small breakfast buffet, nice and fresh.
