We have stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses in several countries and expected this would be the same. NOT so........we found the two young ladies at reception when we checked in to be helpful and nice however after having just flown 8 hrs and been in transit for 12 we had hoped to have a good night sleep! We found the bed very uncomfortable, the drain in the shower was clogged and the soap dispenser in shower was empty. We didn't report this to reception because it was 10pm and we were heading to bed very exhausted! Breakfast was your usual buffet, nothing exciting but adequate. The gentleman at reception gave us directions to the train station. Just as a side note: It would have been nice to have been told the machines at the station only accepted coins or that we could have ordered our tickets on line at the hotel before heading to the station. They shouldn't assume that every guest is familiar with the train system in the Netherlands. Thankfully another traveler at the train station helped us out! Compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses.......the overall experience was not as nice! I would definitely check into other options on our next trip!
