As a Flemish speaking Belgian I stayed over at this hotel. The receptionist did not speak Flemish. Moreover, when I first phoned I was told that the rate was 50 Euro, but on arrival they tried to charge me 60 Euro, and on top of that they advertise for around 36 Euro on bookingsites. The room was really small, the... More

A bit a worn down place. If you need a bed to sleep this is it. If you expect more: better go somewhere else. Breakfast was basic but good... The service poor and our room overlooked some kind of technical area, so there was no daylight.

I was stayed here with my family for one night. The people outside the hotel are seriously disgusting. There is no air conditioning in June. The elevators... More

And not in a good way. We were just looking for cheap accommodation for one night close to the train station, as we were arriving from London by train and wanted to stay one night before continuing to Amsterdam. But where do I begin. The hotel rooms looked great in pictures, but they weren't. At all. The rooms were dark... More

I was there unfortunately during the Fish market (big international event) so all the hotels were full and I didn't have the choice. But gosh it was a bad experience. Not only my room was small but the only window was facing a huge wall and the mattress was not particularly good. On top of that, I had to take... More
