“Nice, homely, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Two business meetings brought me back to Zwolle. Looking for a less expensive hotel than my previous stay, I tried Fidder Hotel situated in a quiet residential neighbourhood, at 10 minutes from the NS station and also a 10 minutes walk to the city center. The hotel building is integrated in a couple of connected houses and has a small, cosy restaurant.
The room was clean and comfortable. Integrated bathroom. Original small mini-bar. Diner was excellent! Staff act friendly and professionally. Nice small bar with an excellent choice of whisky (even the only Belgian whisky - Belgian Owl - was there).
Very friendly priced hotel: good value for money: € 110 including breakfast, wifi.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. It is only a 3 star, but it feels much more like a 4 star. The communal areas of the hotel are really lovely and cosy, filled with interesting antiques. The bar is very cute, we enjoyed a drink in there before we wandered in to lovely Zwolle for the evening.
Our room was lovely! We were delighted with it. It was really peaceful with a big comfortable bed, a jacuzzi bath and a sauna, Fantastic! The breakfast was good and plentiful in a lovely room with beautiful furniture.
The staff were very professional, friendly and efficient. Overall, the experience was excellent and we will very happily return.

Room Tip: Room 31 is quiet, has a queen sized bed, jacuzzi and sauna

I love this hotel and everytime I go to Zwolle, I rest in this hotel!
the location is an old house and the business is managed by a young dutch guy. inside the hotel is beautiful with real old style! everything is clean and the rooms are comfortable. there is a great bar downstair with a huge selections of rum, whiskey and grappas. the breakfast is very good with good food and different chooses. location is good and price is more than fair. jsut internet connection isn't the best.
just choose it!

Fidder's - as the hotel staff wishes to have it's name spelt - is a typical Jugendstil-style hotel - as many of the houses in Wilhelminastraat are. By and large, our group of scientists visits the hotel once every year when their annual meeting brings them to Zwolle. The hotel has a restaurant, which we did not put to the test (due to lots of competition in the city!), but breakfast is excellent, and Fidder's has a nice bar of which some 150 whiskeys are the specialty. A (mild) critical comment go to the beds (at least, in room 22) that have had their best time and remember me of the way Grandma might have slept. The staff promised to put new beds on their task list for 2013.

Room Tip: My partner and I use room 22 on the ground floor which is silent and comfortable. A caveat is a smal...

The real advantage for this hotel is it's location. You can get into the city center in 15 minutes walking. The breakfast it's good, with some dutch style influences served in a very nice restaurant with street view!.
No elevator available, but the reception guy offers to carry my luggages upstairs. Friendly staff.
Wireless connection speed very good in both rooms I stayed.
Anyway I enjoyed this nice and old stylish hotel in Zwolle!

Room Tip: Choose a room with Garden view (in the back of the building). There is one room that have sauna bath...

Some people would say the decor in this hotel is charming, which it is. But it is outdated and needs an update. The carpet in my room was just dirty.

I had a room with infrared sauna and jacuzzi (regular sized bath) which was pretty neat. Room was spacious as well but it didn't really feel all that clean. I had different rooms on different nights but I would avoid rooms on the top floor as they have no elevator and lugging suitcase of steep and narrow stairs is a hassle. Also the water pressure up there was horrendous. I could hardly get the shampoo out of my hair.

Location wise this is pretty good. Free parking in the street and walk to city centre is about 10 minutes and allows you to have dinner and drinks in the city without the hassle of driving.

Biggest letdown was breakfast, which was far too expensive for the spread!

Staff was very friendly, no complaints in that department.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was fabulous. The service was excellent and location was fantastic. Breakfast is really good , you can hire bicycle from station which is 10 min away. Hotel has lovely courtyard and awesome bar. Hotel has jacuzzi and sauna bath in the oom. Free parking offstreet. Attraction wise Zwolle is nice town and Giethroon is nearby which is must see. Would be back again. Dutch people were very friendly..........
