We thought we would have to adjust expectations for a more European-style hotel (smaller/older rooms, questionable bath, potentially reluctant service) and were amazed to find ourselves at a hotel superior in quality, service and style. We arrived after an overnight flight and were welcomed to an invaluable early check-in. Our room was huge and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable (none of those two twin beds pushed together to make a queen), the bathroom full of amenities (great shower!) and technology up-to-date and fully functioning. The included breakfast was extensive and satisfying, even after 4 days of it. Unlike other places striving to project a modern, artsy vibe (which can sometimes translate to inaccessible or bizarre), the hotel feels sophisticated, sexy, cozy and like a friend with a sense of humor. Speaking of friendly and having a sense of humor, all of the staff, from the front desk (which doubles as concierge) to the restaurant staff was simply amazing. They were patient, welcoming and sincerely helpful with every request. We hope the hotel understands that it has something special in employees like Jan and Joris.
