“Perfect business hotel for the tired body”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I stayed in this hotel 2 times - first visit because my travel agent booked it, second visit because of my experience in the first. Do i need to say anything more? Yes ! Of course. Excellent bed, and a quite nice bath tub - sufficiently big to accommodate a foodie like me. The rooms TVs in this hotel are of Philips make and so gives you one of the best TV experience. Well, a small line here, if you dont know, hotel TVs from Philips are the best! I was lost in the superb bathtub and the cozy bed. The lounge was also very good. There was a problem with Wifi signal in all rooms, and they were kind enough to change my room immediately. I guess, it was a temporary problem. I didnt try teh breakfast, so sorry cant tell anything about that. There is a football stadium next to the hotel and you can see players practicing when its not a match day. The hotel has a big open parking and the city bus stop is at a walking distance. The nearest outside food point might be a Mc Donalds at a 15 minute walking distance.

This hotel is adjoining the local football stadium and depending how you feel about that it may influence your choice - as it was Sunday it was very quiet. What a great hotel , friendly welcome with a modern lovely large warm lounge, great fire and excellent bar service. Amazing bedrooms with rainfall wet rooms and superb beds. After 10 days travelling on business this was a little haven.
Downside was the breakfast buffet - the worst selection and quality I have seen in a long time, no bacon despite sign saying egg and bacon, hot servery contained rubber scrambled egg and dry toast, tea water was tepid and chef spent 40 minutes slicing cheese as far as we could see - such a shame and the reason I did not rate this place as excellent
Nice 20 min walk to pretty old town for good restaurants

I have stayed one night during a business trip in the Lumen hotel. The hotel is modern, with a good concept and really nice design. Restaurant is excellent and at reasonable price. Beds are really comfy. Rooms facing the streets can be a bit noisy, so if you are sensitive ask for a room facing the side or back.

If you come by car you need to enter the stadium complex, I didn't pay any parking fees..

Everything is convenient, and there comes the thing the Lumen is definitely above average, I found it a bit impersonal and therefore only 4 out of 5 stars.

During my stay in Zwolle I booked this hotel. They have real beautiful rooms. Nice design, good beds, coffee machine, etc. The hotel is close by the highway. When you Like to visit the centre it is not so central. You need to go by car or take a taxi. The price for this hotel is very good compared to what you get for it! I will come back!

A beautiful modern design hotel, overlooking the football stadium and near the indoor pavilion, shops and conference center. The hotel team is very young but very competent and friendly. The rooms are very clean, modern design and have coffee machine. The restaurant is perfect and the lobby is grand and has a fantastic combination of lights and colors.

Isala hospital is a massive new hospital and if you (as me) work for one of the hospital's suppliers this is really the best hotel option. The hotel featured a nice restaurant and breakfast, a friendly staff, a small gym with cardio machines and some free weights. A walk to the city center takes around 40 min and is located in the same building as a big stadium so I guess it would be a great place for a convention of company event.

Besides this the hotel experience was rather average.
