“Good location, not picturesque but very central.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Good location, central to main attractions.
On arrival, Virginia greeted us and checked us in. Very friendly, quick and efficient.
We had a smoking room and it was as expected. Quite small, tiny bathroom but clean. Tea and coffee making facilities aren't the best. Room was tired, dated and old looking however hotel lobby was nice.
Mediocre at its best but clean..
However after a certain time at night you have to be buzzed in the hotel lobby, and it was heavily raining and we were ringing the door buzzer almost continually for a good ten minutes. No body was on the front desk. We didn't even get a apology!
Much friendlier staff in the day rather than night.

Make sure you visit Anne Frank's house, and some McDonalds charge for using toilets!!! Shocking! (even when you've eaten there)

Let me begin with presenting my apologies for the fact that you had to wait 10 minutes before the door was opened when returning at night. We shall look into this matter as this is not acceptable.
We fully agree that the room on the "smoking" starts to look dated. All our rooms were refurbished 10 years ago so we have started refurbishing again last year and 2 floors have been completed by now. The rest of the hotel will follow at the end of this year and at the beginning of next year. Unfortunately the rooms for smokers will be phased out.
We value that you took the time to post a review and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future
With best regards

Excellent base for exploring. Only ten mins walk directly down from Central Station. A haven of tranquility on a really busy street! Not the largest room to move around in but very modern and clean.

We were pleased to learn that you had a pleasant stay. Yes, our location can not be beaten and due to our double-glassed windows the interior is quiet.
We hope to see you again

We stayed in this hotel in March and I couldn't fault it! Perfect location, room clean and tidy, mini bar was well stocked and a smoking room! Staff were attentive and helpful. I would definitely stay here again!

We were pleased to learn that you had a great stay at our hotel but are sorry that we have bad news for you. At the end of this year we shall not offer any rooms for smokers anymore. Operational wise it became too difficult to manage the mix between non-smokers and smokers.
We hope that we shall see you again despite this news.

Yours sincerely

Many thanks for your review. Yes, we do not have the largest rooms but with the recent renovation of 2 floors and the renovations of the rest of the hotel by the end of the year we try to compensate size by creating a nice atmosphere.
And despite the investment we shall not raise our rates. We hope to welcome you again
