My wife and I decided to go to Holland for "pre" Tulip Festival activities. It was our first trip to Holland and we stayed at City Flats based on a friends recommendation who said it was in the middle of downtown. The elevator requires a room key to go to your floor which is a great safety feature, but was an inconvenience the day we were checking out as our key was not functional before we checked out and could not access the elevator as we moved luggage. The room was unique, trendy, urban. The shades black out all outside light and I am sure keep energy costs down. Although after room service when we would return our shades were closed with ALL our lights on. (Not sure how efficient that is.), The room was like walking into an IKEA showroom. While being trendy, the room really was not very functional. Shared closet door that was also your bathroom door. No light switch for the toilet area. If you got up in the middle of the night you had to turn on the bathroom light which illuminated the sleeping area. Side lights by the bed that would not function unless the lights above the bed were turned on. We stayed on the fourth floor which had the restaurant above us. As I tried getting to bed a little early the first night all I could hear was chairs going across the floor above me. Again at 6:00a.m. the sound of chairs. I am surprised so little thought went into sound proofing. Bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were soft, clean, and a pleasure to slip into. The living area was not that comfortable with IKEA type furnishings that were not a pleasure to come back to after a long day.
Bar was a happening place each evening. Staff seemed to go through the motions and really did not engage or help with recommendations of where to go or what to see when asked. Overall okay place but not worth the increase in weekend rate.
