The room was clean, comfortable and big. I don’t usually use room service but the price was very reasonable which was a good surprise.. - Bed could’ve been softer and better pillows considering the standard of the room.

2€ to enter plus a 1€ charge to climb to the top of the tower for a spectacular view. Well illustrated guide to the church as well as a video feature in choice of languages. Well worth the entry fee.

A landmark for Dordrecht, this church is quite old and offers a tall bell tower quite impressive. Inside is not very rich but remains a good architectural spot

Free entry to the church and 1 Euro to the tower no guide so climb by yourself. Great views from the top well worth the climb.

Grote Kerk (St James Church) was completed in the 16th century. It has a 93 meter tall tower, one of the tallest in The Netherlands. The interior has some beautiful stain glass work, a wooden carved pulpit, as well as splendid sepulchral monuments.
