June 22nd, the temperature is 27 Celsius and there is no air conditioning (no elevator but we can deal with that), we are in a tiny so called junior suite (everything about 30sqmeters) with a tiny bathroom with no separate shower stall nor separate toilet, small closet too), it is part of the leading hotels, we did not expect this. Others talk about spacious rooms, the other ones I could visit were even smaller. Windows opening is difficult and gets you more street noise than ventilation. Very few electrical outlets but good wi-fi.
On the plus side, great charm, medieval house, tasteful period furniture, great staff with charming attitude too. You are told that air conditioning cannot be installed but another old city hotel, three sisters, has it. Also individual units do exist, right ?
Dinner in the courtyard was served by again charming and attentive staff. The very small menu has a mix of slow food movement cuisine ("perfect" egg slow cooked for hours a 65 degrees) and comfort food like burgers and club sandwiches. A few medium range wines selection to accompany it (or beer of course).
You can do better in this city. The service is indeed very good but you expect more from a hotel belonging to the leading hotels association
we moved the next day to three sisters hotel. btw staff in telegraaf hotels and three sisters all know about the problems: small to very small rooms, no ac, no improvement since opening.
Go if you must in a cool season.
