Quiet location, close to public transportation stops
Far away of center, minimal public facilities if any,
The bed and furniture was decent.
The location was in the middle of nowhere, quite far from the city center, staffs had often problem communicating in English, the interior was shady.
It was clean and less noisy than in other hotels in the area. Area is another 'bonus' thing. Buses 64 and 69 in minutes will get you to Sloterdijk train station from which you can get to the Schiphol airport in 10 mins and it's easy to get to other cities as well from Sloterdijk. Downtown you can get by tram 7 or 14 or by bus 21. So this whole Slotermeelan area is awesome.
Breakfast was rather poor, we ended up eating one kind of snack with bread and some coffee... I would suggest to have breakfast somewhere in town if you want to have some variety of choices.
The hotel from the outside is awful but don't be put off, the reviews I had read varied but the hotel was excellent, its a 15 min tram ride away, but was so comfortable, clean and spacious, Great shower and breakfast was a great surprise, so glad I went with my choice and stayed here.
The location of this hotel was good because it was a very quiet location near a beautiful lake with good and easy transport to city center and central train station with excellent breakfast that was free.
Very friendly service and was willing to print out my boarding passes if online booking was avaible with my airline. Provided anything I requested foir the room.
Breakfast only, no other meals. Plus no bar facilities so not a full 3* hote and should not be advertised as such. In reality it is a Large B&B.Provision for Breakfast was inadequate for the no. Of guests leading to long delays in re-supply of food.
