“Needs some updating!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I want to first start off by saying that the breakfast offered at this locations was delicious and had a lot to choose from. Everything else could really use some updating. The rooms were very old and had rusty pipes in bathroom. The sink, toilet, and shower all had soap residue smeared all over the place. This location was close to many things and if they would just update a few things and maybe clean a little more it could be an average hotel.

Had more of a Pension/Hostel feel to it than a hotel . You are paying for the location and not the splendour , fine if you are on a lads trip for the Belgian beer but if you are on a romantic break don't stay here .

This hotel clearly trades on it's location, but offers very poor value for money. The condition of the accommodation was terrible and bore no resemblance to the advertisement. Having traveled with two elderly parents in early December, we found ourselves in two primitive and freezing rooms, on a corridor which eventually opened to the street. Our room had a broken window, and the glass had been replaced by a piece of cardboard, stapled onto the window frame! Two noisy electric fan heaters, mounted together onto the wall at eye level, provided heat to a grim and noisy room. My parents spent a freezing night when the heaters in their bedroom stopped working entirely. My complaints were met with apathy from a sarcastic receptionist. The hotel was full, and the reception staff were unmoved by the issues. I spent a sleepless night trying to find another hotel, but the town was busy, and we were condemned to spend 2 more nights there. Breakfast was held in the cellar of a connected building, which was clearly old and characterful but was freezing and congested like a school canteen. I would really recommend you find somewhere else.

Room Tip: The hotel comprises three sections, joined together with a restaurant and a bar at either end. An i...

Despite the great location the hotel is truly horrible. I can only compare this accommodation to an old fashioned borstal/childrens home - it really is awful and should be avoided!!!! The web page is very misleading and the hotel is definitely not worthy of a 3 star rating.

We booked this hotel for a 3 night stay between Xmas and new year, the room we stayed in was a family room, room 407, if you get offered this room REFUSE it is shocking. The bathroom is tiny, the room is tiny, the tv didn't work, the sink didn't drain,there was no hot water in the mornings, condensation ran down the window and our child's bed was a grubby sofa. The hotel is dark,dismal and tired but they still know how to charge.the parking is in a grubby garage with no floor finish and they charge 20 euro. Avoid this hotel it's never seen 3 star.the whole set up is reminiscent of cheap bedsit accommodation.

We booked three nights in this "hotel" anticipating the facilities and comfort of the advertised 3star accomodation. What a disappointment,all three rooms were very shabby,uncomfortable and in need of attention.The three bedded room was reminiscient of poor student accomodation,no ventilation in the bathroom and the TV did not work and our young grandson and parents had to wait four hours for their room to be ready.Our "comfort" room was clean but the thick plastic protector on the mattress was aggravating.The warren of dark and dismal corridors are depressing and the unprotected dark stairway,on the way to the breakfast room is a safety hazard for young children.The Koffieboontje charges 4star prices for its mediocre services and if we had previewed the hotel we would certainly have walked away.

Room smells, and is not very clean. Everything looks and is old. Location is great. Breakfast is poor but enough. People is nice. Internet does not work, its better to go to the lobby when nobody is cleaning, otherwise they will just clean over you (if I do not move the girl may just clean over me). I would never come back.
