Me and my boyfriend stayed at hortus for two nights the end of April for a cheap short break. After finding the place (which we found slightly difficult as no significant sign saying 'hortus hotel') we were checked in immediately and given keys to our room on the 3rd floor. As were 18 and 19 the stairs were no issue for us but there are a lot of them and the second set are almost vertical!! Room was nice, clean, bright and airy- no smell of smoking for pervious guest which was good! We had a shower room attached to our room which was great too! Bed were super comfy and duvets were cosy- no crappy blankets here! The Plantage area is quiet and peaceful so barely any noise from outside can be head however walls are thin in the hotel and other guests can be heard, only disturpt us once and soon after we heard the manager tell them to shut up ad neighbours were complaining. On our first day the manager of the hotel gave us a map and circled hot spots, the squares, places to eat/drink, placed to visit! He was brilliant and made our planning out days a lot easier! When walking into town from the hotel dam square takes about 15 minutes and Rembrandt square only 10. We went to the zoo one morning which to our surprise was two streets was at so took less than 5 minutes! Breakfast at the hotel was simple bread/toast, cereal, boiled eggs, ham, cheese- basically abit British and abit continental for everyone's taste! All in all this hotel is great if you want a decent night sleep after a day and night in the dam with a good breakfast the next morning ready for your next crazy day ahead!
