I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights because of its close proximity to our office in Dordrecht. For the convenience, I was pleased. There was absolutely nothing else to recommend about this hotel, however. It is truly one step up from a hostel and advertising it as "hotel" is stretching the definition.
My room was more like a dorm room, small, cramped, a locker for storing my clothes. I could only watch TV lying flat on my back in bed---there was nowhere to get comfortable in that room! There was only a cheap plastic folding chair and, when I complained that there was nowhere for me to even place my laptop, I was given an identically uncomfortable room with the addition of a small table fior attempting to do work (the reason I had traveled there in the first place).
I had to make a request to get the thermostat "unlocked" so I could adjust the temperature in the room. It was a drafty room with large, older windows and I spent the first 2 nights wrapped in my comforter trying to stay warm!
|The ventilation system is faulty, so, I was forxced to endure the cigarette smoke of other guests (not allowed, but, they did it anyway) in my room for several noghts. I am allergic, so I am well aware of the presence of smoke, even though the hotel staff told me this was "not possible".
|The included breakfast was uninspiring and exactly the same every day.
I will say that the staff in the breakfast room and the woman who cleaned my room were pleasant and kind, but the hotel staff to whom I complained were pleasant but non-responsive/helpful---agreeing with me about the unsuitability of my room, but, not offering any remedy (except for the already mentioned addition of a table to hold my computer).
Since my company has an office virtually across the street, this hotel could get a lot of business from work colleagues or clients due to its convenience, however, i wouold never recommend it to anyone.
