“Different in a good way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

This is a charming and rather different hotel, a world away from the uniform chains (even if it is under the Best Western brand). Convenient location about a kilometre from the station and the centre of Zwolle.
Small downsides - a rather steep staircase (no lift) and dirty carpets in the public areas. However comfortable rooms, excellent, friendly service and a decent kitchen make this hotel good value for money and a pleasant place to stay.

If you want a modern, plastic, high intensity hotel then pick something else.
If you are looking for character, charm, friendly service and a hotel from bygone days where service and ambience was the key then book immediately. Fine location in a charming town just a short walk from all the major amenities I loved it...

A hotel with a lot of character, although some steep stairs to the upper floor and maintenance could be improved; quiet, a little away from the city centre, but for that reason free parking; outstanding breakfast; and the most friendly, multilingual staff we ever had.

Room Tip: to the garden

this hotel is only 5 minutes walking from the train station, great location. The Hotel is situated within 8 minutes walking distance to the Zwolle centre.
the staff at this hotel, were great, and friendly, nothing was a problem.. The only thing wrong with this hotel is the fact that it is an old hotel, with no air conditioning, a tiny top window that could be opened but the main windows were sealed shut, with only a portable fan in the room. The room we had had a very musty odour to it, and it was not cleaned two days in a row, with towels left outside door on floor. The breakfasts were great, and dinner was also great but a little bit expensive compared to other hotels we had stayed in, over the last two months. Howere Zwolle centre has some great places to eat in the main town centre, which were very cheap in comparison to were we were staying.

downstairs outside the lovely garden was a delight to stay in, and we used this every day. If the problem with the ventilation was fixed this would be a great place to stay.

We stayed overnight and had a 'stylish' room which was furnished with dark wood. The room had a lovely small balcony to sit out on and enjoy the sunshine. The garden was also perfect for doing this though.
Downside was a small bolt on bathroom but more positives that negatives. Patricks bar has a lot of good whiskeys and the bar tender a very friendly and helpful advisor.
Hotel is set about a 15 min walk from the station and in a quiet street about a 15 min walk to the centre.
Zwolle is very pretty and worth a visit.
Breakfast was ok . Lovely setting but ad hoc service.
We would return though to hotel Fidder.

This hotel we spend our weddingnight and the first three anniversaries. It;s a wonderful hotel. From the outside it looks nothing spectacular, but wait till you enter and you will feel like you were set back in time 100 years. And I'm not just talking about the ambiance, but also the personal service. High quality breakfast. Try the breakfast on your room!
I can recommend this hotel to anyone looking for peace and quiet, for good personal service, for classy and yet homy atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try a room on the road side, these rooms are more bright. The suite is very nice.
