Hotel very centrally located very easy to get to main train station and main shopping area and cathedral. Quiet street too. A comfortable clean and cozy room with all necessary basics - sufficient for our stay. Breakfast very good with vegan options available. Friendly and attentive service, keeping within the safety Covid rules.

We stayed in superior double room and really liked how the space was arranged very economically. The location is really central, so you can walk to the main shopping area and the cathedral - even in the rain. The breakfast was very good for us - very nice bircher muesli!

My second stay at this beautiful hotel and yet again I could not have been happier. From the moment we checked in we were greeted with friendly smiles and a helpful hand with our bags. We were then given some general information about reception times and breakfast options. Our room was perfect! We were booked into a regular room with an ensuite bathroom and I was quite impressed by the size compared to other hotels I've stayed at. The modern bathroom (with an amazing shower) has everything you need including lovely fluffy towels. A separate changing area gives space to put down your bags and a small couch/chair to contemplate which outfit will work for the day. The bed is super comfortable and the blockout curtains were great for sleeping in a bit. Thank you so much for the KitKat you left on the bed for us. I love that personal touch! Breakfast was amazing. They are very focused on hygiene which I truly appreciate. On arrival at breakfast hand sanitizer was available and we were shown what was on offer. Various breads, cold cuts, eggs, bacon, cereals and cheeses as well as various coffees to choose from. We did not leave hungry! Something that this hotel does very well is their personal touches that they add to everything from the information at the breakfast table, the KitKat on the bed, the personal welcome note (also on the bed) and the delicate/efficient/professional way they are handling the hygiene and sanitizing regulations. Thank you for going out of your way to make sure we had a pleasant stay. We will definitely be returning in the future!

We are currently staying 2 nights and very pleased. The hosts are hugely welcoming and the establishment is spotlessly clean. The hotel is easy to find and within easy reach of the cathedral. An excellent find. The rooms have air con and good sound proofing all in all very comfy. It's also within 100 yards of Peters Brahaus more of that later!

Straight in the middle of centre, right near the dom. Very welcoming staff, also very baby friendly! Room very clean. The breakfast is made with love! If you want your egg cooked another way just ask it they will make it for you into perfection. Staff speaks perfectly dutch and english as well.
