“Nice cozy hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Stayed there for a week.Nice and cozy hotel but not many choices in breakfast. A church nearby whose bell may be disturbing to some people. Wi-fi is there but not secure as my laptop was attacked with virus though anti-virus was there in my laptop. Lots of eating places nearby but as such nothing more can be done in city itself..

Room Tip: rooms on 2nd floor are better

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I stayed here for 2 weeks and had a pleasant stay. The staff is friendly and the breakfasts are find for a quick bite and coffee. The rooms are average and nothing special but they were roomy. The hotel is a 1930 historical mark of a famous designer so they don't dare touch it or update the hotel. I didn't mind the dated look of the hotel as the price was just right.

On a Friday night there was a party (rave) of sorts in the theater and there was a lot of music during my stay but it was only for a night and then someone on the staff or a person staying at the hotel yelled at the kids to leave around 1AM.

There's a great little ice cream store just outside the hotel and it's very popular on hot days. The hotel also faces a very nice looking church which makes a nice view.

The centre of Hilversum with all the shops and shopping mall is a short walk away and there's a good Indonesian restaurant nearby as well as a great place called the Open Keuken. The ribs and food here is really good. The restaurant next door is really good as well. There's an Albert Hijn's just up the street as well to get groceries.

Our room was large, but outdated. It was clean and had free WiFi. Breakfast was not included and we did not eat there, so I cannot comment on the food quality. Staff was very friendly.
It's an average hotel with a great price.

This large hotel has seen better days and could do with updating room facilities - a shortage of plugs for example and bed was dipped which indicated it was worn out..Having said that, for the price it is OK. Large room and bathroom very clean with plenty of towels.and a good shower. Breakfast was included and this had buffet as well as cooked choices. Fresh fruit and yoghurts plus a selection of cheeses and types of bread. Free WiFi with an option to upgrade to a faster speed if required. It is a place I would return to if in the area on business, but would not choose it for holiday purposes due to limited facilities.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I paid 55 euros a night for this hotel including breakfast 70 euros. It is definitely not worth more. The rooms are pretty big but they are cold, they are from the 70s, the TV is small, the bath is old, the breakfast is poor and the lobby could do with a serious facelift. BUT, considering the price I guess you cannot demand too much. I will try to avoid it again as I travel a lot for work and I need my mental health.

Nice clean hotel, only 10 minute walk from the train station. Friendly staff, who are happy to help with extra keys, taxis, local information, etc. Just don't bother with the Breakfast - €15 euros - and there are several cheap places to get breakfast within 5 mins. The two Night Clubs downstairs are only noisy on Saturday nights, (didn't notice them on the Friday). No hotel bar, but would strongly recommend the Madalena Brazilian Bar just round the corner. And careful on the cycle paths - the cyclists are mental.
