Nice interior and really spacey restaurant and waiting hall. The staff was really helpful but the rooms and their facilities were just standard. No refrigerator, no slippers no iron and slow WiFi. Clean and simple rooms.

Dear Giannis, Thanks for sharing your comments with us. We only would like to remind that all our rooms are equipped with a refrigerator, slippers and iron are available on demand, so as reported in our room information map.

We stayed here for a night whilst touring Holland recently. We had previously stayed in there other van de valk hotel near to Rotterdam which was lovely so was expecting the same. Unfortunately this was not the case. Rooms are small and basic a bit dated but clean enough. The thing that i did not like is the fact that...

This is a nice hotel, the bathroom is modern and nice though no bath. The beds are extremely comfortable. The room was tidy but the fridge did smell - though the staff did agree to fix it. The food is nice good selection for breakfast. The staff are generally good though some staff were too direct and maybe need to...

I'd been stayed in the hotel for 3 weeks during my education in Netherlands. Location of the hotel was perfect for my purpose: away from morning and evening traffic jumps, the nearest hotel from my campus, nice park just over the threshold. But the nearest supermarket was 20 minutes walk away from the hotel. Of case, all tourist points of...

Good, clean, easy to reach and plenty of parking space. If you're like me you like to workout their is a David Lloyd gym next door which is excellent. You have to pay but at least you have access to a very good gym with pool. Downside to hotel its isolated so if you want to go into town you...
