Old world charm, good location, walkable to train station and old Dutch hospital area.
Some updates needed, staff are ok but when I asked for help with some things they could have done better.
The food & drink, are reasonable for the price. The place adn location was good. its really nice for realxtion. so everything as according to my plan. thank you for your team.
The curtaiins of the bugedt rooms not propper. so try to change of the curtain. and hot water.
The view over the harbour is stunning.
This is an old relic of the bygone days of empire and attracts people of that mindset. If it were mine I would modernise it and bring a new breath of life to it. Bygones are bygones. The Empire is finished...
Great location and check-in experience.
I stayed 1 night in this hotel and felt very lucky to stay there. It is safe, clean, central and has everything that you need after a long flight: shower,AC, water, room service The Building is old and probably had better days but everything is working and clean ! Staff was very friendly! At check in I got a fresh juice for free!
