This Hotel definitely had the nicest rooms out of all we stayed in while on the Contiki Trip. It was a decently far cab ride from Amsterdam, and the cab driver was insane, but the hotel was lovely. Plenty of room for the 3 of us.

The staff (boy) at the reception on the 1st night was very bored and not so friendly with us as customers when we asked for transport directions to the city center. The place itself was clean and cozy with heavy classic style furniture. So for this I would give all 5s. But the service of that person 1. The women... More

This is located very far from the central. But have trams and buses to reach central takes about 40 mins Heater wasn't working in our room, even after complaining twice nothing happened. They offered extra blankets as remedy. Next day provided a portable heater Good large rooms, with lake view, No water bottles provided

The personal that meet us in the reception had to have a bad day because they weren't polite, but neither rude. The only positive thing about this hotel is the breakfast which is... More
