Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

Stayed one night. Huge hotel, quite a walk just from reception to room. Room very large but no mini bar or tea/coffee makinv. Decor in the room a little dated but everything clean and well kept. Breakfast in modern restaurant quite good with wide variety.

Hotel is indeed very good. Big & clean room. Good & co-operative staff.Rquipped with all the facilities. Good restaurant with good food. Only problem that it is far away from city center & you will find nothing to see outside other than highway.
Those want to stay & take relax only, this is a very good hotel. However those want to do shopping & visit the city, they may have some problem & can be dependent only on taxi services. No scope to walk & reach city center.

Room Tip: Must choose the parking facing room

Van der Valk Hotel is huge, so huge that there is no soul in it. The hotel reminds me typical American hotels - brick walls inside long halls, dark lights, professional but reserved reception staff.

Car parking spacious as expected on the huge mall side.

Rooms are clean, very large. Beds are soft but comfortable. TV - 36 inches flat screen and about 24 programs, mainly native language. Poor wi-fi internet access - slow!

Bathroom contains both shower and bath tub. Toilet cosmetics are good quality and many towels in different sizes are available.

Breakfast is excellent however no local specialties. Coffee from ordinary coffee machine.

Location close to the highway but about 4 km from city center.

What works against the hotel?
1. Slow internet access. It is free only 2 hours per day (probably due to overloaded).
2. Noisy room door shutting - I heard them late in the evening and early in the morning. Rooms are general noisy. It is easy to hear all talks behind the room doors.

What works for?
The big machine works smoothly :)

Room Tip: Ask for room do not face the highway.

Just next to the highway but almost no noise inside, spacious rooms and separate shower and bathtub, even in 'standard'-rooms. The rooms are rather dark and though we didn't need it (it is december...) we've read there is no AC in the rooms. Rest about the rooms seems to be excellent, rooms are good sized, so is the bathroom. Breakfast offers a good variety and staff are friendly. Expect a lot of people having breakfast at the same time though, still no queuing.

Every Friday- and Saturday-evening the hotel offers 'Live Cooking' (be sure to book in advance!), at just €32,50 you'll have a good-quality buffet, meat/fish prepared at your request and to your taste. Also soft-drinks, beer and wine are served free of charge. We liked the Live Cooking very much, the food was delicious and with the drinks included is was a great deal!

Hotel is clean and most of the staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: Make sure to visit on friday or saturday, during 'live cooking' you'll have a great deal...

Stayed here to watch a football much, the less said about that, the better. It was very well organised hotel, nice clean modern rooms, large plasma TV and a huge bathroom with separate bath and shower. I was amazed that the local beer was cheaper in the hotel than than most bars in Hengelo, just over 2 Euros a glass. The buffet breakfast was quite nice it did suffer with some pretty disgusting sausages and the usual anaemic fatty bacon. The rest of it was fine though. It wasn't a cheap hotel and breakfast added another 12+ euros to the price.

I have reserved using BOOKING.COM. The reservation some how did not appear for the Hotel. I had the reservation in my computer but even so the staff was a bit suspicious about my reservation. After that, they have managed a nice room and everything got back to normal. Good rooms and awesome breakfast. Really enjoyed and relaxed this hotel.

Had to be in Hengelo for husband's work commitment. The hotel was very easy access on and off the highway but you couldn't hear the highway noise in your room. We visited in mid July and thankfully, it was not very hot. There is NO air conditioning in the hotel rooms. The bed is very firm and could be a problem for some sleepers. The free Internet is rather odd. You get up to two hours per day in half hour chunks. If you need more time, it is very expensive.
The restaurant was very good and the included breakfast buffet had plenty of items both hot and cold including custom cooked eggs. For 59 euro a night (booking.com), you couldn't beat the price for a clean and well maintained hotel.
