Beautiful

The most beatiful hotel we have stayed in. Spacious, comfortable and peaceful room. Welcoming and friendly staff. Gorgeous decor and great location. Round the corner from 2 tram stops into the centre. Loved it, thank you.

Very cool building and restaurant. Room not best.

We stayed for three nights and were generally very impressed. The staff were great and the restaurant was cozy. The hotel was quiet st night and the rooms are quite quirky. A couple of things let the stay down but these were room specific so may be different elsehwhere. The room (209) was a bit delapidated. The floorboards were bouncy, the finish on things wasn’t great. The door had chunk of veneer missing. The lights didn’t work properly. I expected a bit more for the money, but the issues were only cosmetic and perhaps this room was on the list to be upgraded. That said, we had a great stay and the hotel was great in all other things as far as we were aware.

Lots of character

This was my 3rd visit, the last being 10 years ago. Some of the changes since then are brilliant - the terrace overlooking the park, the bar & restaurant area. However, the reception area has lost its charm, I think. It had a friendlier feel to it & was a little more casual before. I have to give 5 stars for the amazing dinners. Such tasty food! Beautifully presented, too. I also like the fact that the entrance is now in Oosterpark because I had never thought of exploring it before & it is really beautiful.

Perfect stay

Pros: The decor and rooms
Cons: Reception staff were a little slow on the check ins, but that's only minor and didn't effect our stay
Location: Great location, nice and quiet but only a few minutes away from the city centre. Loved the park!
Great hotel, just a short walk from the city centre and the train station which was the perfect location for us. Great hotel interior and bar/restaurant, really nice atmosphere. The rooms were very clean too.

Gothic! Not your run of the mill hotel

Apparently the hotel was full while we were there - but you'd never know it. It was quiet and atmospheric. Massively high ceilings and walls covered in billowy curtains make for an exceptionally different environment. The staircases are amazing, the gothic foyer welcoming, and the rooms are surprising. Definitely different, and interesting. I'd go again!
