“very nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I went to this hotel with my son (9 years) for one night. It was a very pleasant stay in a beautiful room. Downstairs a living room and big bathroom, upstairs a beautiful bedroom with good, nice beds (only pillows a bit too big). We were very happy! Next morning a very good breakfast. Thanks!

After a whirlwind tour of Europe on a fantastic Trafalgar tour we arrived in Enschede in the Netherlands around 7.30pm. It took a fast train from Paris to Amsterdam on Thalys (which was delayed multiple times and arrived 80 mins late), and then 2 trains from there to Enschede at peak hour and a bus ride to get there before almost collapsing through the door of our hotel. Within 15 minutes of arriving I knew I had booked a good hotel, they got us straight into their restaurant as we were starving from sprinting with suitcases between trains and buses. After an exhausting day which I would not recommend if you are lugging 2 heavy suitcases full of souveniers, the dining room was a beautiful sight. We sat down and while waiting for my wild boar to be served I began my love affair with Grolsch beer, to which along with the good people we met is something I will always remember and treasure. The meal was fantastic and the hotel which has a old quaint sort of look to it from the outside was wonderful, with warm appealing decor in the main area's and a more modern set out for our room. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful making it a terrific stay, something that the management can be very proud of. I have no hesitation in letting you all know what a fantastic hotel this is and would love to one day go back. The hotel was across from the university of Twente where we needed to be to see our son and so was perfectly placed Thank you to the manager and all the staff in the hotel and restaurant.

I have stayed at this hotel twice, most recently in late October of 2012, and was very impressed both times. The front lobby staff are wonderful. I arrived quite early and they quickly rearranged rooms so that I could check-in to a room and relax after a very long trip. They assisted with other arrangements, and help pass along information to colleagues staying at the hotel. In short, the service was wonderful and I always felt like they were trying their very best to look after their guests.

The rooms are very comfortable. I had a loft room with a work area, balcony (nice view over the green space at the rear of the hotel), and washroom on the main floor, and then a bedroom up a steep flight of stairs. There are televisions on both floors, and separate adjustments for heat (which was handy since it was quite cool). The room is well-designed and very comfortable. The only flaw is the need to go down steep steps to find the washroom in the middle of the night, and I would not want navigate the stairs after a few too many glasses of wine.

The breakfast buffet is quite good - essentially the usual mix of hot and cold items that you find at good hotels through the region.

I have a computer that can only connect to the internet via wifi, and I was a little disappointed to find that I could only access wifi in the breakfast area or lobby (wired connections available in the rooms). The first hour of wifi each day was free, and you could pay for 24 hour access.

Overall, a very good hotel that is just a short walk from the University of Twente, and a short taxi from downtown Enschede. I will use it again next time I am in the area.

I chose this hotel for a combination of convenience to my course location (near the university) and for a compfortable, nice hotel for my wife and I, as I would be in class all day while she either remained at the hotel or traveled nearby by bicycle. The hotel was quite convenient to my business, and the bicycle routes into the old city section of Enschede and Hengelo were smooth and well marked. The hotel itself was very quiet and clean, and we loved the loft styling of the bedroom over the living area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from Hengelostraat for a better view, but facing Hengelostraat for mornin...

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.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a view be sure to ask the front desk upon check in.

If you like worn furniture from the 70's, complete with stained carpets and walls, and wicker chairs with equally worn cushions, this is the place to stay. Plenty of dust in the corners, no bar soap, a tiny bathroom, and a meagre selection of breakfast items. At 140-160 euros a night, this hotel is overpriced.

We had our marriage in Enschede and slept in de Broeierd. The people knew that but we didn't receive a congratulation or so. The bedroom and the bath were dirty. The wineglasses we used were standing there 2 days later and still not cleaned. Other people of our group had the same problems.
The breakfast was ok, but it was really cold in the breakfastroom and also in the bedroom. We couldnt make it warmer.
The light in the bath is "gezellig" but impossible to put your face on.

Room Tip: gardenrooms are very dark
