Easy to reach. Good parking possibilities. Clean room. Poor TV picture and no improvement after complaint. Standard furniture; not very modern. Hall without flair. Very expensive breakfast.
The good restaurant and the quieteness of the hotel. Sometimes there was too much smoke in the receprion. On top of that the smoke could enter the restaurant. That was the only (but for me) important negatif point.
Friendly, easy access. Nice comfortable rooms.
The breakfast buffet was good. The restaurant, although with limited menu, served delicious gourmet salad. Its quite far from Amsterdam Central, although there is a train station 1.2 km away. Our stay coincided with an IBC conference so most moderately-priced hotels in Amsterdam were booked.
The rooms were clean and air conditioned. The beds were comfortable.
staff was friendly, nice breakfast room with view on the garden, good free parking it is a no nonsense business hotel (groups coming in for meetings etc...) so not very charming!
Great rooms, quiet location next to highway
It was a quiet facility and I liked the fact that they had designated non-smoking rooms. I had a strange sewer like smell for the duration of my stay there.At first I thought it was only my room but I smelt it in some of the hallways as well.
the friendly and welcoming atmophere created by its staff I would prefer for the hotelo to have some sports facilites
Very friendly staff. Comfortable room by reasobable price. Free parking. Convenient location near autostrade but quiet. There was no aircon in the room I stay. It is not problem in Autumn, but may be significant in summer time.
clean room, nice modern bathroom. Breakfast nice buffet. Visit to Naarden Vesting is a MUST. Fortress village surrounded by double moat. Straight shot to Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam) and close to the main East-West Highway. No A/C in the room. A bit stuffy with warm weather.
Hospitality location Expensive breakfast @ 19 Euro
I stayed for a single night on business and stayed in Naarden as it was close to the office. Hotel is a short taxi ride from Naarden-Bussum station. It also serves a satisfactory dinner and breakfast. Room was very clean and perfect for business travel. Wifi in the room is not free but you can get free wifi in the restaurant in 30 minute increments. For me it was convenient, well-priced and I would stay here again. Although I was overall very satisfied the hotel, as a chain, lacks personality and if something more personal had offered dinner I would have stayed there. The restaurant is satisfactory but not more than good. The food is tasty and acceptable for this standard of hotel but not a highlight.
Good staff, variety of breakfast options Bar closing time
Easy to find from the motorway Fitness basic, No airconditioning, Restaurant closed 1 hour before time advertised
The breakfast was very good The choices for food in the evening were very limited
Breakfast, private parking
excellent buffet breakfast no minibar in the room
Excellent location, in the rural area of Holland, close to the walled city, bike rental, lake, and quick easy train ride to the heart of Amsterdam Nothing
Very basic hotel Having to pay for car parking
excellent night portier, big room, good for 2 adults with 2 young children, nice location at lake
the location very slow service
The room had a suggestion of cigarette smoke
The views of the lake. Comfy beds. Warm rooms. Spacious room. Free internet in the lobby. Room could have been improved with tea/coffe making equipment. Also an iron and ironing board.
The spaciousness of the room, the quality of the beds and an airconditioning system that really worked well. The television sets could be bigger (maybe flatscreens on the walls would be an idea?) and it would be appreciated if the tea & coffee supply next to the electric kettle in the room could be topped up on a daily basis.
The large rooms. Getting locked in the bathroom... honest, I did!! It is a credit to the hotel staff that even after this nightmarish incident caused by a faulty lock, I am still positive about my experience,
quiet with good rooms wider choice on menu
lake to slow served at restaurant ,terase and bar
The location on the edge of the lake Items on the menu were overpriced.
The view The room are outdated. The restaurant is nothing special. The service is a catastrophy! Reception but especially in the restaurant!!
Visit some frinds in Laren No
Nice size room and large bed and easy parking No coffee or tea making facilities in the room & bottled water was expensive
The suite room is great, the upgrade justify the money for value.The wifi internet for free, the free parking, the quit zone where is located the hotel The breckfast is litle poor and to expencive in the room
Wonderful view. Very quiet. Excellent service.
Large rooms, nice staff, fantastic wellness center.
The indonesion restaurant in the hotel and their friendlyness.
view over the lake and marina the bar is not warm/cosy.
The view from our suite..
Good breakfast, friendly service lack of assistance with luggage and wheelchair
Central location. The staff were excellent.
It was very pleasent. The desk clerk was very helpful. The breakfast was good. I loved that I had internet in my room. One night the music was till 3 in the morning. I believe it was some sort of disco. It was very loud and kept us awake.
nice bedroom, central location lobby being refurbished during stay breakfast menu exact same every day, over a week it became boring
Central Old and worned down, not worth its 4 stars
The Breakfast was of an unacceptable experience, Dirty Plates, Egg,Bacon cold and in my opinion had been there since the day before as was the bread on day these comments were stated to reception on checking out a day earlier.
very friendly and professional staff, central location near shops and pubs, own car park, good bathroom facilities,comfortable bed. old and dated, no 4 star comfort, no other facilities, depressing lobby atmosphere, restaurant closed, small room, internet 16 € per day, small TV, basic breakfast buffet ( hot food is not hot ).
The staff was very friendly and professional. Free internet was not available.
Location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good size room with large windows overlooking the town. Bed a little soft.
in center of town, no, helpfull staff at all hours.
Decent size room, quiet. When I had difficulty to connect to their wireless internet there was no help available.
The best thing about this hotel is its position. The room has a lot of space. Four star hotel should have much better rooms. It looks like that the hotel needs renovation badly. Carpets are not clean and curtains also need cleaning. Sharing balcony with 10 other rooms is not a good solution in case you forget to close balcony doors.
I liked the calm and peaceful atmosphere and the placement of the hotel - not far from the station and the surroundings are really lovely...Magic place, thank you
Wonderful out of the way place
Great breakfast, nice quiet location. Waterbed.
Quiet and friendly small town atmosphere. Sense of locality. Situation beside beautiful canal.
The owner and staff are very kind. Room is nice. It is a little difficult to find. So it is better to get arrived before dark (the reception close at around 22:00)
We had a large suite, separate bedroom and living room area, with TV, coach, small kitchen with all necessary appliances. Wonderful views over the river. Quiet and cosy. Breakfast was fantastic. The double bed was narrow, only 120 cm. Otherwise comfortable.
10 min walk far to the train station-easy to reach Amsterdam. A 10 min à pied de la gare-accès facile au centre d'Amsterdam Bad soundproofing of bedrooms. Mauvaise insonorisation des chambres Do not be late for check-in (10pm). Arrivée à 22h au plus tard
The proximity and easy access to my home city of Amsterdam but without all the hustle and bustle. Absolutely nothing!
The restaurant! Nice variety of well-prepared dishes & very professional. Mold in the bathroom/shower. One of the first things I look for in a hotel.
Service, clean room, good breakfast.
Very small rooms, badly furnished. Hotel was very noisy.
Free internet connection
It was at a very peaceful area close to a wonderful lake and close to the railway station, only five minutes walk from the hotel. Also the staff had been very very helpful as to how I will move around with the railway they printed me timeschedules for the trains, gave me maps etc. The rooms were perfect exept for the bathroom it was a little dark with a slight smell. But generally the cleaniness of the bathroom was good.
I like the location as it is near station with direct access to Schiphol Not up to 4 stars! No airco, stuffy rooms
Gorgeous rural location, friendly staff and clean, comfortable room Food and drinks a little expensive and the dining room was a bit dark
i did not like anythink. for the price paid I'd expect also breakfast. Sheets were changed just once 1 seven days because I asked, otherwise they were not going to change.
problem with air condition, very hot
Good location close to station. Ideal for business in outer Amsterdam area and Hilversum area I felt that the price per room per night could be a little better value.
Nice and relaxed atmosphere . Serving staff helpful and friendly ( we had a little toddler with us) My daughter found the bed matress to soft, but this only a little personal comment, because she enjoyed the rest of the hotel very much. I am a non smoker so I didn't like that it was allowed to smoke in the hotel lobby
We liked just about everything at the hotel -- attractive room, free parking, excellent breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, plus all the usual cereals, breads, juice, fruit, cold cuts, etc., easy access to Amsterdam via train There was no air conditioning and unusually warm.
Receptionist very helpful and friendly. Room clean and tidy No
the comfort of the room and the space. It was all fine
free easy parking,room with balcony,good staff, terras in front of the hotel slept above the bar which was noisy
The friendly and helpful staff and the quiet and peaceful location, plus only a short walk to railway station (which is the the best way to get to A'dam)
Nice and quiet place, easy access from the highway There was a plastic fork under the beds, but overall the room look clean. No hairdry facility...Breakfast relatively expensive, so we prefered to have it somewhere in the city
Very small room, not the same of the photos on booking. Very noysing, you can hear other custmers of the hotel speaking in theyr room. Not a good experiense.
Excellent quiet, small-scale hotel, perfectly situated next to a train station with frequent connections to Amsterdam. Nice rooms with all amenities. Friendly and accomodating staff. We have stayed there several times, and service remains on the same, very accomodating level.
Central position in Holland No staff available for half an hour when we arrived, door open poor excuses why
The room was spacious and comfortable. The food was very good in the hotel restaurant. The best part of our stay was Tommie. He was a major factor in making our stay comfortable. He assisted us with directions and made several valuable suggestions. He was friendly, courteous and spoke excellent English.
Very friendly and helpful staff Glass panel near our room did not have a warning so I walked into it! No double beds for married people.
Clean, the room was so quiet so I had one of the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! Nothing
Is a bit far from the Amsterdam about 35min by train, and far from the local shops 1km by foot, easy for visitors with a car.
We liked Bussum very much. We thought the hotel was good for our requirements. Enjoyed the breakfast. We would stay there again certainly. Wheelchair access was ok, but the doors into the hotel are difficult. Car Parking security - we noticed that there was evidence that cars are broken into by the station. Increased video / lighting would help.
Its position in relation to the railway station No
Very simple clean and tidy just exactly what is expected. A quiet room with a comfortable bed for a good nights sleep, followed by a simple straight forward breakfast. staff could be better trained to help customers.
clean shower the proximity of the railway
excellent, very nicely decorated and a great breakfast in the morning - the surrounding area of Hilversum proposes some excellent restaurants and great shoppong
Extremely comfortable bed and sensible duvet tog rating . Both bath and shower rooms were immaculate ; Good varied breakfast . No mirror in bedroom : a box of facial tissues would have been appreciated .
very personal service,clean and comfortable room.our's had an enclosed balcony the stairs are very steep and with the dark carpeting makes descent difficult
Not your standard hotel but just a great Villa with nice designed rooms in the middle of Hilversum. I stayed in the suite and it was beautiful and spacious New towels please.
De stijl van 't hotel, klein, gezellig en stijlvol ingericht. nee
This is a very comfortable small hotel.
The hotel offers a homely feeling. The quality is excellent and the design interesting. The breakfast is very good. I'd happily return to VT.
Nice surroundings and garden; homely villa; some negatives, but still very pleasant Backbreaking haul to the 2nd floor via a steep, narrow staircase with a heavy suitcase; a requested cheese omelet became a fried egg with molten cheese(..); top floor too hot (and it wasn't even summer); getting there requires perfect map-reading skills
Friendly staff, nice ambience No laundry facilities, no lounge, no restaurant, too expensive in light of the aforementioned
It is very well designed The hotel is a no smoking one, but unfortunately someone had smoked in the room, and having thick carpet and many curtains, it smells a lot. My husband is allergic, and could not sleep.
Nice room,clean, peacefull area and nice location for enjoying the surrounding area both countryside and yet close to larger centers. I am sure the meals are well presented and of a good quality.But their prices are more than I would want to spend Especially if you would consider the accompanying wines as recommended.So we decided to eat elsewhere.No elevator but that would be no problem as staff willingly offered to assist with lugage if one wishes. Staff at reception and checkin very friendly and made a good impresion.
Good beds / Excellent Breakfast
If the hotel, or restaurant, shows its menu and price at the entrance, it is very helpful.
Excellent Food, Staff very Efficient & Friendly.The situation is super being alongside the river. Will Return later in the year.
See above. A pleasant upmarket, personal small hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The surroundings are Dutch picture book. Leaving the hotel, I could have stayed longer
The food and service in the restaurant of the hotel was fantastic. Lovely rooms. Had a great time at a friends wedding which was held at this hotel.
Freindly staff. None
Very convenient for rail connection to Amsterdam Central, and much cheaper than city-centre venues. Extremely helpful staff (for example they let me use their computer and printer to do my on-line flight checkin). Good eating places within a few minutes' walk.
I did not like this hotel at all The room was not clean: there was a lot of dust on the furniture and the glasses in the bathroom had not been changed!!! - I made a reservation for a non-smoking room but I got a smoking room
pleasant hotel, sufficient facilities for a short stay and well organised and safe; hotel was clean
Very comfortable beds. Room was cleaned nicely everyday. We had two small children, and their beds were also spread out and comfortable. No complimentary breakfast. With small kids at least that is quite important.
Downtown Hilversum - nothing stands out about the hotel. Staff were friendly. It was dated, over rated and expensive in comparison for what the same money can get you in similar places. I travel extensively for business and feel I have a fair view of what is available.
The warm welcome of the staff. I didn't like that I did not have any tea/coffee facility either in the room or as a 'to-go' option in the foyer.
We stayed in Junior Suite which had beds for 4 persons. Room was big, clean and personal and hotel itself has a nice art deco -flavour. In certain times parking place for car was not easy to find and Emmastraat has quite heavy traffic.
Staff very very helpful, friendly and made me feel at home. Very unusal these days The breakfast was a little basic
The hotel was very central and clean. Staff were efficient and friendly. no
Hotel was much more luxureous than I expected from the offset as it had been only recently renovated. Pleasant ambiance. Having a parking at the back of the hotel was very good too. Breakfast was nice, cafe latte was excellent (very important!) I can imagine people complain about the steep stairs, but as long as you know that in advance (which I did thanks to the reviews I had read on bookings.com) it's acceptable.
The room was better than expected and the hotel food was good For what the stay cost I cannot complain about anything
the breakfast could be much better,fresh yoghurt,crispy bread marmelade was not ok
the resturant is good.
was a pleasant relaxed atmosphere, with an easygoing freindly management
Nothing special Both food and hotell were too expensive compared to similar other hotels used on out roundtrip
