“Good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Basic hotel however a bit out-dated. Quiet suburb location - ideal for wandering around Hilversum. Friendly enough but they don't go out of their way; the barman the most chipper!

Room 5 - clean and beds comfortable however bathroom freezing cold despite fan heater. No mirror above dressing table so had to resort to leaning around the corner into the bathroom to use mirror when blow drying my hair. Full length mirror by the entrance door - but too dark to see as no illumination. No hair drier in the room - just ask at reception (twice!). Struggled initially to get the soap out of the dispensers - would be nicer to have the usual hotel guest bottles as only travelled with cabin luggage.

Breakfast - plenty of croissants and pastries but a limited with the hot food. Enough to eat however. Didn't have dinner so unable to comment.

Small bar area - quite pleasant to meet up with friends

Check-out: painless!

I really struggle to find anything good about this hotel.
The bathroom is freezing and there is some sort of vintage fan heater that doesnt really work
The radiator in the room only half works and makes terrible gurgling noises
The bed (right under the window in a draft) is one of the most uncomfortable I've ever slept in
One of the lights did not even have a light build in it.

I certainly would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

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.
