We stayed in the Tea leaf apartment. The views over the canal, the location, the general layout were absolutley fantastic, exactly what we wanted, a romantic little apartment. Quiet, but central,picturesque and somewhere comfortable to sit and relax.
Great layout,large fridge freezer,dishwasher,senseo coffee machine,breakfast bar,concealed washing machine in bathroom.Good sofa -bit firm. I-pod dock, a godsend.TV and DVD player.
Bathroom had underfloor heating.Shower was good,bath was excellent but did take a long time to run.Plenty of towels and toiletries in wall hung dispensers.
Bedroom tiny but plenty of wardrobe space,concealed TV in top cabinet.Really lovely tiny balcony off the bedroom with a couple of chairs and table.All very clean.
Apartment minus's ;
This is well decorated and considered, but it really does need the paintwork refreshing- urgently. lots of lovely mood lighting but this is a drawaback when trying to apply makeup- so pack a lit mirror ladies we did however find a concealed shaving mirror on the TV unit in the living room on the last day !The bed is quite firm.The only real problem we had was the bedroom which while being located at the back- so virtually no noise, is also directly above the mandarin apartments balcony.We had the badluck to be here at the same time as a group of around 4 who would return at 4.30am and sit and smoke and talk at 30 minute intervals until 6.30am, and while not being rowdy,it did sound as if they were in our room.(to be fair there is something in the handbook requesting guests not to do this).
We took the 197 bus from the airport - 4 euros each and only 30 minutes then walked to Prinsehuis.Brilliant service.
There are 2 excellent supermarkets and bakers around the corner, so eating in very much an option.
Dissapointed that gas and water were cut off on 2 seperate mornings due to work outside and we were left to work this out.Know this happens anywhere but a courtesy call may have been nice. Aldo meant we couldn't make a cuppa, or shower,but not prinsenhuis fault of course.
Would I return here - absolutley.We totally love the Prinsenhuis and are looking forward to returning next year.
