“So much potential...”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

Breda is a beautiful place...full of charm, quaint streets/canals/architecture. We needed to spend a night there after coming over from UK. The Bliss looked wonderful on the website, and when I arrived in the afternoon from Schiphol it seemed that way. My wife and younger daughter were arriving by car later. There seemed to be very few staff, and no one who was in charge. The receptionist was vague to say the least, and did not appear to have much local knowledge. The room seemed nice, and the fitments etc were all good. There was the usual boutique hotel find out how the coffee machine works, but that seems standard these days. The bed was certainly comfortable.
Around 6, I tried to use the bath, only to find that the plug didn't work. A trip to reception was met with shrugs, and someone from the kitchen appeared to see if they could fix it.... they couldn't. Without trying, I was told no plumbers were available, and I was offerred to change to an inferior room, which I declined (my wife and I finally used the bath in our daughter's room).
When my wife arrived in Breda by car, the fun started. Breda is much pedestrianised, and getting a car even with sat nav to the door proved impossible. The 'valet parking' failed to materialise, and the receptionist only vaguely knew the direction of the local car park. When we finally negociated a parking, we had a 10 minute trail along cobbled streets with our luggage. The lift to the rooms is bizarre, and would not pass scrutiny (you have to hold buttons at all times to make it work).
This hotel has so much potential, and with a bit of organisation (I assume the owners are not hands on) and some genuinely knowledgable staff, it could give value for the high room rates that they charge.
Sorry, but in beautiful Breda this is worth a body swerve until they improve.

We loved this hotel - fantastic location (although do double check directions before you arrive to avoid falling foul of random street closures - a GPS will not help!) Very efficient valet parking and check in. Wonderfully atmospheric room with fireplace and comfortable sofa (Notting Hill suite). Gorgeous bathroom and very comfortable bed (despite being two joined together). Great staff. Extremely stylish, but then we love Flamont. Very little downside, possibly a bit of noise from the bar outside and some from the wooden floors of the hotel. Breakfast choice quite good but no eggs benedict/smoked salmon etc. Didn't try restaurant attached (arrived too late) but meant to be excellent. Definately one of our favourites hotels of the year!

The most exclusive stay in Breda is the Bliss Hotel. It is located right in the very center of the city. All 9 suites are very comfortable and large. They each have their own touch and style. Perfectly designed. Rooms go from 200 up to more than 300 Euro's. But it is definitely worth it. We stayed in the Mystery suite, which was romantic and had a beautiful bathroom. They serve a very good breakfast. Next to the hotel is their small restaurant: Chocolate. Parking is prohibited in the old city area, but they offer valet parking.
One small remark: there was a teapot in the room, but we didn't find a water cooker and the tea.
We come back next time, also because Breda is lovely. It is not too big. But offers great shopping and dining.
