This hotel is a former twentieth century office of the Dutch Shipping industry designed by the then young architect Johan van der Mey. It became the magnificent hotel it is now in 2007.
The offices have been changed into beautiful comfortable bedrooms. Unfortunately when we were there it was very hot and the hotel has what they call a "system of climatization". This is not air conditioning but air circulating with a fan. As this was barely cooling the room they brought us a small fan and it helped a little . Nevertheless it never cooled the room enough.
The mini bar was complementary and replenished once a day. The staff was really friendly and very helpful.The main problem was that at the time of checking in and out there was not enough staffing. We had to wait a long time to have our suitcases removed from the room and even a longer time to get our car from the valet parking. The parking is very expensive in comparison with similar hotels in other capitals of Europe.
We did not eat at the hotel as the dining room was always empty and the neighborhood was abounding with all kinds of restaurants. The situation of the hotel is perfect for visiting the town on foot.
The hotel, although comfortable, is not quite the 5 stars we have known in other cities but its beauty comes from its architecture.
