This hotel is near the Arab community so it is easy to find Arabic food. You need to travel at least 15-20mins to reach the city center and at least 30mins to reach centraal station. The plus point is there is a direct bus to Schipol International Airport. The hotel is neither new or old. Room facing the tram track...

This was the first city and hotel of our European Inspirations Contiki Tour, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to find this hotel was pretty good. Compared to other hotels we stayed at, this one was clean, reasonably big enough for 3 people and the bathroom was quite nice. We had 3 singles, it was a little cramped for space...

From the outside, this hotel doesn't look particularly nice but once you enter inside it gets a lot better. Staff on the front desk have very good English and are rather friendly, check in and check out was very swift and they gave out great advice. We booked the room with 3 single beds and it turned out the room...

The hotel was booked as part of a package so I'm not sure how much we paid. It was described as four star but three would be closer. Comfortable, clean with all the amenities but if you are expecting something like the ones on the current advertising campaign then you will be disappointed. The staff were very helpful especially with...
