I visited the University of Twente for a meeting and stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is very nicely situated within 0.5 km of the university, 0.4 km of the train station, and 0.05 km from a bus stop. This made getting around very convenient. The room was quite clean and comfortable - yes, it did show some signs of age (with regards to the furniture and carpet), but otherwise was very well kept (the bathroom was exceptionally clean). There wasn't much of a view (unless you like to look at the roof of the restaurant), but I wasn't there for that, so it wasn't much of a bother to me. I have to imagine several of the rooms have a similar view because of the steeply sloped roofs.
t believe I had a slightly lower rate than others due to a negotiation with the meeting. I found the accommodations to be generally in line with the cost. The breakfast was good - I found plenty to choose from. There is a bar/restaurant attached which is very nice (but a bit pricey for what you get). There isn't much to choose from nearby, however.
Most importantly, the staff was incredibly kind and attentive. Every single person I interacted with at the front desk, the restaurant, or elsewhere was helpful, polite, and very nice. When my hard-wired internet didn't work (new computer issues, not theirs) they gave me complimentary 24 hour wireless access; when I had a change in my reservation they accommodated me without any problems whatsoever. I can't say enough good things about the staff.
