“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We have just returned from Delft after visiting the keukenhof gardens. The hotel is in a great location. The accommodation we had was room 28 on the ground floor. A big room with an enormous bed. The bathroom was of a good size but had louvre doors about the size of a small wardrobe. The extractor fan did not work. The chambermaid forgot things most days, i.e., no shower gel, no tea bags, only left one cup. Next day no milk or creamers, next day no towels. The breakfast was buffet style - started at 7.45 - make sure you get there for that time - as one day we arrived at 8.15 and there was a distinct shortage of food. No croissants, only one cereal, every morning it was scambled egg and bacon.
One good point was that the staff were friendly but I think they were embarrassed when asked for more food and politely said there were sorry but there was none. The evening meals were quite boring - and if you are a vegetarian you only get salad.

Nice hotel in downtown Delft in the canal district. Although more expensive and more difficult to visit with a car, it is nice place to sleep and tour the city on foot.

We went to Delft in January, well before the tourist season. The rooms are standard with ensuite bathroodms, small by modern styles but it is a classic canal house and the rooms were not cramped for two people. The room comes with a very good breakfast without the silly extra expenses (For example, Ikea food court charges .40 euros for a packet of ketchup). The rooms are clean and there is little noise from the other rooms and the street. You can walk every where in the city and to the local transportation and to rail for Rotterdam and Amsterdam. There is a bar that is open at night but no restaurant service (just breakfast and lunch).

We visited the standard places in Delft: the two churches, the musuems, Ikea superstore, and china factory. There are many restaurants to choose as well as mall and shopping. The staff at the hotel and all the retail establishments speak fair to excellent English.

If you bring a car, you can park in the mall for a reasonable fee and the hotel will subsized the fee.

I recommend you stay here if it is yourself or a small party although the hotel is much bigger than a standard bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: Use the photos. They are accurate. However, they are all good. Be advise: there is no elevator.

Foreign tourists most go to amsterdam to feel a touch of holland. Delft is just an hours traindrive away from Amsterdam, but very worthwile. It's as old as Amsterdam but still has the atmosphere of a small village. The Vermeer hotel is alongside a small canal. Not far away from the railwaystation and nearby a large parking garage. This old house is completed restyled to a small hotel with much atmosphere. Nearby the hotel are many restaurants for every budget. The breakfast was allright. The service was perfect.

Room Tip: we had a suite at the backside of the hotel with a nice view. A small patio for the different suites...

We stayed there for 2 nights in early August. Location was great, not really far from the main train station and food area. Though it would be quite a walk with luggages (especially if you're traveling with family or kids). Rooms were refurbished and new. AC, tv, shower, lighting, worked perfectly well. I asked for the canal-view room, and it was great. My kids have the oude kerk (old church)-view. However, the little stairs to get to our rooms were hard to climb with luggages. The room was spacey, clean, and neat. Breakfast was served greatly, and they even served hot chocolate when you ask for it. When you use the taxi to go back to the train station, the hotel would book one for you.

Overall, it was a great stay and I would definitely stay in Johannes Vermeer when I visit Delft.

We stayed at this hotel last weekend, and took their last available double room, at a nice price, though I did have to negotiate (twice) to get the price listed on their website. Unfortunately, I have to say that given the cuteness of the building and the nice ambience of the lobby and dining area, that the room was disappointing. It was room #31, way in the back, very gloomy and dark due to trees covering the windows. It also had a musty smell, but we figured, we'd only be there one night... we could deal with it. The bathroom was very nice, and spotlessly clean, but when my husband tried to open the small refrigerator in the room, the whole door came off in his hand! We went out for dinner and came back late - a little before 11.

When I got into the bed, I realized why the musty smell... the sheets and comforter were damp, cold and clammy, and so was the carpet, when I checked. We believe this was perhaps a storage room previously and the carpet is laid over bare concrete, probably no insulation...

At any rate, I knew I couldn't sleep there in a wet bed, so my husband went up to talk to the desk clerk and caught him just before he left (hotel is not staffed at all after 11). He phoned the manager, and they ended up giving us the honeymoon suite for the night.

We slept comfortably, however, the lights in the bathroom didn't work at all, and the jacuzzi tub was dirty and had lots of hair in it. The decor was a little odd too, but hey, we slept well.

The hotel staff was wonderful, very friendly and accommodating and breakfast was also quite good, with a nice variety of foods, fresh fruits and juices, nice pastries, eggs and delicious coffee.

However, this hotel that could be a first-class place, is instead a bit tired, worn, and not very well maintained. I'm hopeful they'll do some needed maintenance and stop booking people into room #31...

I would not rule it out... if you are looking for an excellent, central location, sweet outdoor seating along the canal... just don't let them put you in room #31!

Room Tip: Just avoid #31.

Comfortable bed and breakfast was very good.
Staff very friendly.
Good situation in Delft. The hotel paid our parking.
Do not forget to visit Vermeer Centrum which is very interesting and well presented.

we enjoyed our stay a lot. Staff was not professional, however very friendly, welcoming and correct. Based on the bar and breakfast room, we expected a very nice room. The room itself (honeymoon suite Girl with Pearl Earring) was spatious but totally outdated and not cosy at all. Weird colour combination on the walls and ceiling made us laugh.

Breakfast was very good and more than enough.

Conclusion: nice hotel, do not expect too much

Stayed March 2012
