I stayed at the Gooiland on a business trip just after its opening and am happy to say FINALLY Hilversum has a great boutique hotel option! Pros: The location is right near the main shopping district with lots of shops and restaurants close by, and about an 8 minute walk from the train station. The hotel is not on the...

What a cool hotel. Reasonably priced, very nicely renovated with echoes of the history of Hilversum radio and TV dotted all over the building. The bar area is a great place to meet or work. Excellent coffee too and my gin & tonic was first class.

Bed: Very comfortable. I put this first because this and cleanness are at the top of my list of priorities. Clean: Yes, very clean. Location: Was fine.

Dear J L, Thank you for your review. Cleanness is one of your top priorities as well! We try to make it so clear as possible where to park. But the one-direction roads make it a bit more difficult. We hope to see you again at our hotel. With kind regards, Juriaan Couperus Gooiland Hotel

Proud to be one of the first to experience the re-fit of the all-new Gooiland over the past month... The staff (some old, some new) are cheerful, welcoming and keen to please; and the hotel now looks and feels completely different. For the better. Rooms are more airy with contemporary design and higher quality of in-room features (toiletries, coffee machines,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
 The paint is dry, the beds are firmly in place and the bar is stocked up. After a few months of burning the midnight oil, we’ve got Hotel Gooiland in tip-top shape for a new future. We’re not afraid to say that we are immensely proud of the result. Obviously we’re spoilt with this building - possibly the most beautiful one in Hilversum. The Gooiland property, designed by architect Jan Duiker, is the calling card of contemporary architecture in the Netherlands: straight lines, modern pragmatism, light and airy, luxurious in an understated way. Don’t worry, it’s not bleak. It’s sophisticated and hip. You’ll be nice and warm under our duvets from Hema: super Dutch and of simple old-school quality. And that goes for all the Dutch brand names you’ll find in our hotel. We like to give things a little twist, so in your bathroom you’ll find condoms as well as shower caps. Welcome to Hotel Gooiland, the first Dutch Brand Hotel in the Netherlands. Your room is part of a so-called Young National Monument. It’s not as young as our new managing director, though, because Philip is only 27! He’s the youngest hotel manager in the Netherlands. That, too, makes us quietly proud. You’ll be staying in the heart of Hilversum, Media City. Okay, we’re not a metropolis, but the Gooiland district is a happening place with lots of bars and sidewalk cafes. And Amsterdam or Utrecht are only 20 minutes away. 
 Our comfortable rooms (like the ‘Hilversum 3-Herman van Veen’ family room) have Auping beds, Hema linens and a Philips TV. We believe in Dutch brands and in established home-grown quality. Our grandmothers were right: just stick to what you know, that’s crazy enough. What would a hotel be without suites? Ours are nice and spacious and have baths surrounded by a wall of plants. Hey, you are staying in the Garden of Amsterdam after all… A conference, a meeting, a party? Our theatre and our events location, close to the hotel, are ready for you. And if you want to clear your head after a day of brainstorming, the famous Nature Reserve is just around the corner. Don’t tell anyone, but in August the heath is dark purple and of a poignant beauty. ... more   less
