If I paid 60-70 Euros for this hotel I would have been happy. However I expect more for 135/night.
- When we arrived they had “upgraded” us to a large double room but it smelled strongly of cigarette smoke (made worse by trying to cover it up with artificial air freshener). I started to have an asthma episode within a few minutes in the room. Qbic is a non-smoking hotel. We asked to be moved to another room and thankfully they obliged and put us in a basic room with windows, which is what we originally paid for.
-There is no door to the toilet which means the other occupants can hear/smell you as you go about your private business. Not sexy at all.
- The bathroom was so tiny and didn’t have curtains so everything around gets wet when you shower.
- The shower didn’t drain well so you were standing in an inch of water while showering and there were molds in the sides of the shower floor. Quite gross. Picture below. I recommend bringing rubber slippers.
- Centralized heating/air-conditioning so there is no way to turn up/down the AC if you are feeling hot/cold.
On a positive note:
- The room was modern
- The bed was big and comfortable
- Having windows were nice
- TV (though we never used it)
- Free WIFI in the room and in the common area
- Great accessible location beside the Zuid Trainstation and a tram station, a few stops away from Schipol airport
- Quiet despite being beside the station (sound-proofed)
