“Excellent arena for a luxurious trip away ;)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

Very trendy and stylish hotel. Lovely bedroom and bathroom - very unique. Bathroom was an all in one job with a massive bath and great shower next to it. Bed was soo comfy - gr8 night's sleep. TV was grand - hairdryer slightly gentle but fine for a weekend away. Food was excellent on our first night but not so good the second night. Continental breakfast was amazing each morning, the scrambled eggs were either really good or not so good. Recommend the little mini pancakes. Excellent location - very good atmosphere in the bar even though it's out of town. I suppose if you're wanting to go out for tea in town it's not ideal unless you get a taxi both ways. Walk to metro/ tram is fine unless you're in heels!

Great Hotel, beautiful decor, great service. The only tiny little thing from a 5 star is that the shower water pressure wasnt strong enough.

This was the first stay. Three stops on the metro from the main train station and a quick tram ride and we were at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and gave us a welcome drink voucher.

This is an old building converted into a hotel, so it was an interesting walk from reception to the rooms.

Rooms are a good size, the design is modern and contemporary, especially the bathroom! The bed was a bit soft but comfortable. There was slight noise from the bathroom of the room next door.

Room was equipped with a very modern TV (which had BBC1), tea/coffee facilities and an electronic safe. Internet was free.

We redeemed the welcome drink voucher for a ½ price beer at the hotel bar.

We booked breakfast in advance and saved on the full price, breakfast was a good Dutch continental offering, including hot options.

While reception confirmed the restaurant was open until 10pm, we could not get into the restaurant, so we ordered room service. Choice was good and the food was good, at usual room service prices.

Room Tip: Deluxe Room, 2nd floor
