We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in Nov 2011. Our apartment was well equipped with an attached kitchen with all amenities, living space with sofa-set, center table, book-shelf with audio system, dining/working table, comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom with a bath-tub.
The strongest point of this hotel was their staff who were very friendly and helpful. On one occasion, when we were trying to book train tickets on-line and the website was not accepting non-European credit cards, one of the staff gladly booked the tickets for us using her own funds. (Of course we did reimburse her in cash).
As the hotel did not have elevators, all our heavy luggage was carried through the stairs by the hotel staff, which I think is not too common in Europe.
The location of the hotel is in a quiet and peaceful locality with tram stops within close vicinity and cabs available just round the corner.
The owner, Mr Henk and his wonderful staff do deserve a round of applause for their effort to keep their guests comfortable and happy. We would love to stay there again.
