This was a great hotel with a hub vibe. The rooms were clean and quiet, with sufficient room. The only let down is that the shower leaks into the main bathroom, flooding the bathroom floor. The social areas are great, and nice to sit downstairs to relax outside of the room. The gym was an added bonus.

First time in Holland.
Stay was excellent warm friendly welcome rooms clean and very comfortable. Spent a few days exploring the city. Good restaurants and bars plenty of shopping. Festival was ongoing so a great buzz around the city. Next time I'll hire a bike as it looks lots of fun whizzing around..
