“50 shades of grey - and that's the decoration”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I should have been reviewing the NH Hotel in Amersfoort, however as they were overbooked, they had moved me to the Berghotel.

Receptionist was very friendly, and sorted out my room for me - 4th floor. There is only one lift, which is slow, and has no button to close the doors and speed it up. The stairwell is enough to give you vertigo.

My room is best described as 50 shades of grey. Grey walls, grey laminated floor, grey tiles in the bathroom. Also a silvery grey sofa - cant wait to see that one needing cleaning. The rug beneath the bed goes up behind on the wall - an interesting concept on headboards. This was grey and purple. Curtains - pink!

Bathroom - more grey - wet room style shower, grey radiator. Clean white towels, and the most peculiar sink I ever saw - a triangular bowl with a slit - no idea how a gent would be able to plug this up and shave. Nice amenities, plus flannel - but no shower cap.

Two single beds with single duvets pushed together - why?

This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel - but no coffee/tea makings, and no minibar. Didn't look for room service.

I had dinner in the bar - round tables with chairs that are too low, and nowhere to put your feet. Food was good though, service friendly, if not the fastest. If you order the burger, make sure you specify how you want it cooked, as default is mooing.

After dinner, the fun begins - my room key doesnt work. Back down to reception - new key. Back up in the lift - doesnt work. Repeat - only this time I use the stairs. Doesnt work. Repeat...doesnt work. Eventually the duty manager lets me in with the master key.

Can't speak for breakfast. Not sure if I'll go back here - rooms are too depressing.

“great restaurant”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

I never stayed in this hotel but did have dinner here several times.
In my opinion this is one of the best options for posh dining out in Amersfoort.
Not cheap but very high quality and really good service.

“Very good hotel!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Amersfoort itself was perfect for a weekend break - a mixture of historic buildings in the old centre, with a few little squares with pavement cafes and bars made it a cozy feel in the evening. This, blended with modern shopping has the ingredients for a good gettaway short break. The hotel itself is situated in a very pleasant residential district about 15 to 20 minutes walk from both the City Centre and the rail station. The hotel had a fair quality to price ratio - we had a very spacious room which almost felt like a studio apartment, modern decor, designed furniture and a comfortable bed! We even had a fridge to put our snacks in! The staff were very friendly and professional and there was a fairly extensive buffet selection at breakfast, typical of what you would expect in the Netherlands. All in all, we we very pleased and would definitely stay again if in Amersfoort. A good 8 out of 10 hotel!
