“Good location for exploring Texel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Hotel is nicely located very close to train and bus station - ideal for exploring Texel island (bus for ferry terminal leaves just the right time so the passengers can catch the ferry).
The entrance to hotel is a bit dowdy and stinky (also entrance to large cinema), but when you are in the hotel it is fine.
Rooms are rather basic, though clean (3 star is a right rating).
Breakfast is good and the restaurant has a very nice atmosphere.
Overall experience of the hotel is good value for money.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

Hotel in the center of Den Helder, close to train station and shopping street, supermarket in 40 meters.
Renewed bathrooms, got wireless internet in my room. Breakfast was good, dinner also. Good atmosphere in hotel and bar. Will come back for sure. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far as possible from elevator :)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

It has been two years since I stayed at the hotel and the room we had was fine on the top floor. It even had a jacuzzi bath Room 41 if I remember the number correctly. Had a fantastic dinner especially the Mustard soup it was excellent. There is also a art house theater next door and we went and saw a movie as it was raining outside. Very lovely theatre, comfortable chairs and you can take your drinks in and enjoy the movie as well it has an interval. The hotel is also very handy to the train station, literally a few minutes walk across the road and into the square.

We stayed at the Forest Hotel in Den Helder. It has the advantage of being very close to the train station and located in the square. I have stayed here several times and the rooms are comfortable, mattresses not too soft, good showers and the breakfast is adequate. The best thing I liked at the hotel was the restaurant in the evening which does excellent food.
