The shuttle is prompt on the half hour and the trip to the Hotel takes 12 minutes.
The hotel reception area is large and a bit bland, but serves its purpose. The reception and service were excellent. All the staff spoke fluent English. The rooms are relatively small but totally comfortable and the heated bathroom was great. I agree with a previous reviewer that it’s great to be able to open a window and get some fresh air.
The bed was soft and this was the trend throughout Holland. There must be a major conflict with the well proven and researched worldwide orthopaedic advice that a firm bed is better for back and neck pain sufferers.
The internet connection worked immediately and the broadband speed was impressive. We hired free bikes to go into the woods across the road, and the staff was extremely helpful to get us on our way and give us maps. Anything FREE in Holland is an amazing thing, where we found over a 2 week stay that the general and sad tendency was to offer as little as possible and charge as much as possible!!!
The breakfast was very good. .
Please do note that there is absolutely nothing within walking distance from the hotel, so in order to go to Amstelveen or Alsmaar you would need transport.
We ate at the hotel restaurant on the first evening. We identified that it was reasonably priced after the end of the trip. However I had the chef’s special of Lamb casserole for E12.50 and the amount of actual stew was so pitifully small it rather reinforced the ultimate view of the total lack of value anywhere in Holland.
The salad nicoise for E8.95 E was however an exceptional starter. My partner had Fish and Chips for E11.95 and was satisfied.
We did later have a good and substantial meal at the Buenos Aires Grill in Amstelveen.
The relaxation area was great. 2 saunas, large steamroom, swedish showers etc. Wonderful.
Overall this is a good hotel and exceeds by miles the experiences we had in the other 4 establishments we stayed in.
