“You could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Had issues in the bedroom with bedside lamp and desk lamp not working. I reported it, but did not get fixed. The TV is also temperamental, sound comes but no picture. When reported it, they said oh yes they know the issue, they came and fixed it. Next day I had same problem. You would have thought that if they knew the problem they would apply a permanent fix.
Also in the room I had, there was no bedside switch to turn off the room light.
Room has a single bed, and the matress seemed very worn out.
Location of hotel is in the middle of a residential area. Town centre is 20mins walk. Train Station is 15mins walk.

Welcome not warmfull at all, head of bed just close to the door. Very noisy as the heated was making strange bubbles noises... Bathroom horribly cold ! Well ... Not a good experiment even for a professional stay.

Whilst its better than the Amrath it barely is better. The rooms are ok though since its a quiet area. I think this is the hotels best quality. Also, the breakfast is ok. If you pay less than 90 euro including breakfast I think its ok.

There is a certain smell in the hotel as it it hasn't had fresh air for months. Also the guy who sits at reception in the evening is very gloomy. 15 Euros for breakfast is a joke when all you get is cereal and stale bread. Avoid it if you can. Unfortunately not many other options in hilversum.

We've been there for six days in september. First of all the rooms are without air conditioned (cold and warm especially...), second the beds are very little and flabby with pillow too high, it's an adventure sleep there!!! The restaurant inside is modest, only the breakfast in the morning is fine.
Unfortunately in Hilversum it's seems to be the best.

We stayed 2 nights and had inter-leading rooms to our 2 boys (14 and 11). Our stay was reasonably priced which attracted us to this hotel. We were not on holiday and therefor just opted for the closest hotel to where we needed to be. The room was clean , reasonably well equipped and comfortable. We had a few problems which were totally unacceptable to us. Firstly the fridge in the the room didn't work at all. I brought this to the very unfriendly lady on duty at receptions attention and they never managed to exchange it after 2 full days. They seemed to feel that because we had another room with a fridge working we should live with the problem. Secondly the shower gel in the 1 room was totally empty. I wish I found that out before I was wet with water ! And to make matters worse it was still not replaced the next day even after I told them. This hotel obviously doesn't have a simple check list for the employees making up the rooms. However hotel was perfectly situated with many attractions in walking distance to keep up well occupied for our stay.

Room Tip: I spoke to a guy named Frans , who was very helpful and efficient when making my reservation. Ask fo...

There seems to be only a small choice of hotels in Hilversum and we were glad we stayed at this one. Situated amongst beautiful and I suspect expensive villas it is only a short walk to the town centre. Parking was easy at the hotel and we felt the car (with GB plate) was pretty safe. However, Hilversum is a difficult place to navigate round and we were glad of our satnav which brought us right to the door of the hotel. We had an excellent dinner at the hotel - not a huge menu but food was good and well presented. The waiter was very friendly and made you feel very welcome. Reception staff not so keen to engage in conversation but efficient. Our room located at the top of the building was adequate but not luxurious and did get very hot. I assume there is no air conditioning at the hotel which I suspect could be a problem for some visitors.
