Very nice hotel.
The energetic, enthusiastic staff. They offered their services at the slightest moment they could be of help.
Hotel look, Staff
Location - it was close to the office (i was on business trip), but also close to the city if you want to dine somewhere nice (>10 min by car). Staff was very friendly. I had a car and parked on the street front of the hotel with no cost. The mini bar is very pricy, so you should bring your own drinks with you if you do not like the tap water.
Wonderful staff and room. Great price. Quiet area of town. I could relax and work without noise. Incredibly comfortable bed. The location was a little ways from the main part of town but the metro can have you there in 5 minutes or less. The metro was easy to use.
I appreciate very much the kindness of the hotel 's staff and the hotel generally. The city is probably the last place of Holland to be visited. Not too nice people around the city....
Excellent hotel, with outstandingly friendly and helpful staff. Perhaps the best hotel staff I have come across - and I have travelled a lot over many years.
Beautiful hotel very nice even better then the pictures of it
The staff was very helpful offering advice about what to see and how to get there. Public transportation is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel. If available, try to book a room with the 17 foot ceiling. Warm water falling from the shower head 17 feet above is almost like taking a shower in a tropical rain storm.
excellent clean bathroom No
Helpful staff. The loud music from the bar next door.
quiet and relaxing
The heating was not working properly
Very convenient in centre of town with good local bars and restaurants, but still quiet. Friendly staff. Very pleasant town.
Nice area Checking in at hotel 50m away
The rooms were small but comfortable and the staff were helpful and cheerful.the town centre has lots of shops and restaurants and was clean and friendly. The lift was rather old fashioned.
Huis ten Bosch has an excellent location in Etten-Leur and the car parking facilities as arranged by the hotel are very convenient. Perhaps visitors require a little more information regarding the opening and closing times of the car park. I was unaware of the early closing time of the car park on a Sunday evening and could no longer get access to get clothes out of the car after arriving. However, our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable.
It's lively nature. It's location is within walking distance from many resturants and some stores. The staff are very helpful, polite and pleasent making you feel part of their family. It's built in traditional dutch style with steep ladders and no elevator which might be a concern for heavy packers.
the bedroom was really comfortable no
Good Food, good prices in market for seafood, it is a Chinese style place, chinese restaurant,
The food was the only thing good at this hotel... Not a very good hotel. It's dirty and expensive. Lots off extra cost for parking. If you are traveling with a pet then prepare to pay 20 euro a night extra. One time experience for us, not gonna book this hotel again.
Location of hotel. Carpets a bit worn
The location was interesting. It was a little tired and grubby
The relax atmospher, the variety and the good service The lack of English speakers among the staff.
This is the cutest hotel in the world. Such an experience to stay here. It's not in the middle of the city, but it is well worth the hike through the beautiful gardens or around the bay. The room was huge, had a spacious shower and a kettle with tea and coffee. The bed and pillows were clean and comfy and the room had a safe. The staff were helpful and lovely and there's an asian supermarket in the building/boat/barge/thing. Breakfast was less than desirable...
The bed was clean, and the exterior is nice looking. The place was dirty, the carpets smell and need cleaning or replacement. The breakfast was poorly plained, lacking in any sort of creativity or even thought. The microwave ruined breakfast bread. Another concern was the smell of the place, the room was non-smoking, but it reeked of smoke. The common areas smelled dirty, not just boat like. There is a greasy feel to the place. That said it could be nice with clean carpets, improved ventilation or just opening more windows more often, care to the food preparation for breakfast, and some updating in the decor.
Air conditioner is working. Dear Sir/Madam, I am sorry writing that hotel is very dirty and towel was in the room not clean too, no internet connection in the room, lift not working, breakfast very poor only you can eat bread and butter other thing very old, only fresh is bread. Location is not bad but for location you can not chose this hotel!!! I chosed because I didn't know how durty.
absolutely nothing Where do I start? The whole place was absolutely filthy. Our fridge was covered in blue mould. the place has obviously never seen a cleaner, the hotel "rules" states that there is a cleaner everyday - rubbish!!! the carpets were disgusting, the wires were hanging out of the wall, you would be as well sleeping on the warddrobe door as the beds were like a brick. There is a no smoking policy but our warddrobe had cigarette ends in it. Even if you were desperate - please do not ever book into this hotel (actually got a cheek calling it a hotel)!! Don't even start me on the breakfast!!
Close to the park and the centre of Rotterdam. Nice surroundings. Nice Chinese interior and exterior. The interior was worned and gave an impression of dirtieness. Electrical fittings were not fixed.
Room was fantastic and room service excellent. Would go again
Great location and good connection to public transport Bathroom was rather small
Perfect view from the 12th floor. Nice bar, good service. Cool room.
Very loud, no alternative room available, under renovation, no fitness area.
The hotel was very good value, the rooms were well kept and the staff were very frienly.
Swimming pool and sauna/steamroom were excellent, and free internet access very useful. Easy to find and accessible to tram and metro. Breakfast was expensive.
The Staff were the kind I would happily employ and had great temperaments suitable to the `Industry. Good position for Museums and a quick ride to Theaters. Beds too soft and ended up with a backache.Pillows too thin for comfort of neck. Smart tap design in bathroom was difficult to decipher re bath or shower etc until shown and no signage or directions to tell you how to use them. Design upmarket utilitarian and found anywhere. Usual expensive mini bars and snacks.
We loved the view at the town and the harbour from the 13. etage. The breakfast was good, but expensive. The room was excellent.
Views from all areas Swivel chairs in water bar too fast after a few drinks!
Location. Breakfast good. Style of rooms was not that I excepted. Whole floor carpet was awful, totally different style than other things. Excepted also more from SPA: No private rooms for changing clothes. No bath jacket + shoes at room.
simpaty of the staff. keys door was blocked, make me go dawnster with bags to the information to acitvate the car.
Near Station It was a v small room, sheets were not v clean, window was broken so i was wondering if my belongings were safe
The animal print covers for the bed, and the 24 hour-all-you-can-drink- coffee machine.
Stuff was very kind and you have free coffee, milk and tea available all the day. Heaters were switch off during the night.
I asked for a non-smoking room and first room I was given smelt like a smoking area. Second room had a bathroom that smelt like iron (very strong). When we arrived, we couldn't pay for the room because of a problem on the credit card machine. They phoned our room 1AM to ask me to go downstairs and make the payment!!!!! As I didn't go because we were sleeping, they called again 7AM!!!! And to complete, I couldn't have a bottle of water because the hotel was out of it and there was no place around where I could buy it.
Excellent value for money Good breakfast Building works in progress retiling the floors - noisy at breakfast
Excellent value. Very convenient location near Central Rotterdam. Very friendly and helpful staff.
free drinks machine
I booking four days but I just living two days. I can not call the reception. Heating =cold. I don't want living again
Great location, friendly personnel, excellent (and free) wi-fi connection, 15 mins walk from Rotterdam Centraal Station. Was absloutely charmed with the hotel design; it made the room and the lobby look very cozy, The room and the bathroom were really tiny. There was barely enough storage space, and fittings were a bit outdated.
nice staff and good location the breakfast is poor.
Small but nicely renovated, clean hotel. Rooms are rather small. Good value for the money.
The cotel is close to public transport and the rooms are nice, clean and quite spacious. Also the Internet connection worked very well.
Old building recently optimized. The stairs, while I think that it is a usual aspect in Holland architecture (usually you have to cliff through them) . On the other hand the hotel has an elevator.
Helpful friendly staff, newly decorated, central location, breakfast included.
Hotel ok for couple days of staying
The room was clean and comfortable. Price is good. It's not so far from the center of the city and close to old port district which is interesting place BTW. Breakfast was minimalistic
Neat and Clean room with friendly staff at the hotel. There was enough space in the room.
The hotel staffs are very accommodating, they always ask me of anything I need and offer me coffee when I stayed at the lobby.
Breakfast very poor. No air conditioning.
friendly, quiet, excellent beds and a strong commitment to helping others.
the modern style, cosy, our room was really full of light (from outside)
location was perfect for me room was very cold
Location You can stay at this hotel if you do not want following things Reception after 23 hours, no minibar in the room, no iron and iron desk, no ironing service, no bar in the hotel. It does no offer services that supposed to be in four star hotel, I would consider changing this hotel to two or three stars.
Beautiful spacious room and bathroom, extremely friendly staff, comfortable bed (apart form the pillows). Some minor points: pillow too thick, no BBC 1 & 2 on TV, WiFi a little pricy (many hotels these days offer free continuous WiFi which is great for the business traveller), lack of hot-water kettle.
The rooms are huge, stylish and very comfortable. The staff is friendly. Bathrobes were a plus. The breakfast was quite average. The basics are there and a long the right lines, but there could have been a bigger selection.
lack of parking. hotel should have a deal with the secure parking under the Erasmusbrug
It is a very clean hotel with friendly stuff, nice breakfast room and good breakfast with absolutely divine croissants. To much noise through the walls especially in the early morning.
Architecture and size of rooms was great. Breakfast room was impressive. Quiet and very comfortable night. Would recommend this hotel.
A quiet and spacy place to stay
We had the suite: it was huge, plenty of room and aa nice view In most hotels, in the suite, you might expect a mini-bar, and a stereo to play your own music or something like that. Not here: a bed, a bath, a TV, a desk (and an infrared cabin, but who uses that?). Pretty bare for a suite
Hotel Ara was very a relaxing, enjoyable overnight stay. Staff were excellant and food terrific albeit very expensive for us Brits on holiday. Have to agree with most reviews...very difficult to find. If the maps on booking.com had motorway exit numbers on them we would of had a better chance.
It is very closed from the city, and in the countryside as well. Very relaxing, clean, and convenient. Nothing to complain.
The hotel is clean and the staff very pleasant. n/a
A very calm hotel, the staff was very nice and helpful, finally the food was the best the chef is the best I have tried across 5 countries!!!!
The room was very spacious (suite) and the view on the river is great. The hotel could use some decoration, it seems a bit 'cold'.
Pleasant surroundings, very helpful staff. First class stay. Wheelchair ramp from car park could do with relaying, but disabled facilities inside hotel first class.
Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Qulity of facilities, food and drink. Location was further from train station than indicated on the map.
Well located and well appointed. Restaurant performance was poor. Breakfast was average.
I particularly liked the size and decoration of the room and the hotel in general
friendly stuff, restaurant extremely hot room in garden wing
pleasant and flexible staff. connected rooms with regard to the questionnaire: 3d should also have an option "I don't know". And the address when submitting should not read "Amsterdam" but Rotterdam
Ease of access to my work during my stay in the Netherlands Disappointed to stay in the Garden Wing rather than the main part of the hotel, however, I guess based on the price I paid it was a good deal.
Room clean, good beds, attention to detail. Staff Friendly.
During the stay we could smell cigarette smoke which was drifting down through the ceiling into the non-smoking room. The double bed consists of two single beds with single bed linen pushed together which is unusual for people who are used to hotel/motel accomodation in the UK or Australia.
Hotel was quiet,was easily accessable,the rooms were clean.
Excellent Hotel, friendly efficient staff. Enabled one of the business meeting rooms to be used for bicycle storage. A far better use than for meetings!
Great staff and near Kinderdijk. Goede medewerkers en in de buurt van Kinderdijk.
Very comfortable hotel, friendly, welcoming staff
No air conditioning in the rooms and stiffling hot.
Free internet. Beer in minibar was out of date. Railway and highway are around the hotel, so sleeping is almost impossible because of too much noise. Windows cannot be opened, only aircondition can bring fresh air. I payed for breakfast twice although I was the only one in the room.
friendly,easy atmosphere would like to have been informed about the building alterations.The spiral stair case that has been installed is dangerous to use especially with suitcases.Hope you have enough liability insurance,enjoyed our stay though.
The staff were excllent and nothing was too much for them to do.
your information was correct in saying the hotel was friendly. the staff were excellent, very friendly and accomodating. And a really good breakfast buffet.
Walking 20-30 minutes from the down town. It was a good for my health. And a room for exercise is quiet nice. Tea pot was not good. Inside it, it was dirty. I could not use it.
The male receptionist was helpful and friendly. The room was pleasant, clean and the fridge was useful. I had booked room only, but, upon arrival at the hotel, the male receptionist had included breakfast for both days. We had a drink in the bar in the evening approx 22:30 hrs. The barman was eager to ensure the bar closed at 23:00hrs.We felt rushed.
Fantastic Staff No pay TV
Small hotel with friendly atmosphere. The only negative thing was the surrounding area, which is currently a building site.
The hotel is close to the city and just 8 Euros to the train station. The hotel was very quiet over the weekend and the receptionist was running the whole show, to her credit too! The rooms are very clean and tidy. I have family living nearby and will stay there again when next visiting. Note that there is some building work going on at the hotel at the moment though they really have done well in minimising any noise and disruption.
Rooms were very clean and the staff were really friendly. There are no double rooms. All twins. But the rooms were really comfortable anyway.
near to the motorway and good value would have liked a double bed
The hotel is easy to get to from the main road system going through Roosendaal Building work being carried out reduced the size of the car parking area.
The hotel looked nicer than it does on the website. The restaurant & lunch box service are wonderful. Professional & friendly service, cosy hotel. The car park was very useful and spacious. It was harder to find than I thought. You need to look out for the sign in the sky rather than for the building at eye level. The wifi Internet connection was unreliable at the time of my visit but they were working on it.
Any 3 stars hotel around Breda, is better than this one. If you have one problem in your room they will invite you to check out instead of solve the problem! Service/Staff really no professionals.
mini bar was not restocked, nor coffee or creamers. Shower inadequate as it soaked the bathroom. Restaurant food very basic.
Able to provide food for late arrival - up to 2230 hrs. Asked for non smoking and that was all that was available.Roomm and bathroom very dirty. Toilet stained, shower very dirty.
Clean and comfortable room, good shower. Excellent selection for breakfast. Reasonable value for money. No specific secure bicycle parking.
the privacy liked all
The Beer and Dart Room were excellent no
The girl, Chrystal, working at the restaurant, bar was very friendly. The food at the restaurant was not wotth the price. Especially the manner how it was served on your plate.
Very enjoyable stay - good facilities and good breakfast. Nothing
The atmosphere was very relaxed
The location The gym and pool area has not been updated for a number of years now and is becoming quite dated and shabby. It badly need cooling, as the fans are not adequate.
A very comfortable hotel, with excellent and knowledgable staff.
convenience for my business very old fashioned decor.
beds were OK outdated interior of the hotel, unattractive breakfast table and room in combination with too high price.
The room was great, there was an extensive amount of choices for breakfast, the staff were all friendly and helpful. The online bill on the tv was completely wrong - it showed the city tax per person as 71 euros per night instead of 71 cents, and did the same with the mini-bar drinks - 375. euros instead of 3.75 euros.
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend in this hotel, but you definitely need a car to visit the nice beaches e.g. of Schouwen-Duiveland. If you just want to visit Rotterdam the public transport facilities are o.k. The breakfast on Sunday in another room (ballroom) only offered limited options (e.g. no hot chocolate for children, not even on request)
The restaurant food is fantastic! Bring your own alarm clock. Wake up call is prompt, but if you prefer to use your own, there is not a clock / alarm in the room.
Size of room, service, good shower
i do not like the breakfast the beacon and sausages are of poor quality its so boaring and needs a change
friendliness of staff, complimentary use of internet (wireless) I would like to propose to add a small bar (mini refrigerator) for drinks and snacks Most hotels have this in each guest room. Also, for business guests, an exercise room would be an added feature
It was near the company I was visiting.
I really enjoy the employees. The Hotel is small enough that they remember you and always are pleasant and helpful. There is nothting that I do not like about the hotel. Sometimes I wish that there was a coffee shop so you could have a small quick meal instead of the restaurant dining room. Although the food is excellnet in the dining room, it takes a long time to dine. There is one small thing I owuld like and that is washcloths. It's a personal thing.
Great restaurant. Very nice breakfast. Plenty of free parking space. Comfortable room. No mini bar. Bed covers too small.
location and price
The free wired internet No minibar & lack of snacks after midnight.
Really spacious rooms, with large balcony and separate four seat table. Free in room internet access. Considering it was such a large room, only one of the wardrobe doors could open as it was so close to the bed! It would have been nice to have movie channels available and there was no in room information pack - facilities, local sights etc.
Clean rooms, bathroom is much better than I'd expect given 3 stars. Lack of information about things to do nearby in the room.
Great location, very reasonably priced, great level of comfort, Large rooms
The hotel room was fabulous with a lovely balcony looking over the sea. Nothing.
Hotel looks attractive from the outside. My room was spacious but needed some decorative attention, although some fittings had fairly recently been upgraded. Overall the room was comfortable enough. The shower curtain was a disgrace - it had mould around the bottom of it. Overpriced for what you get.
Condition of room Service at the restauant was not good in that I was kept waiting whilst the responsible chatted to her friends. (This is not a complaint, simply an observation - since you asked.)
nice clean and enough room in the hotel to much noise from the ventilation in the hotelroom,
Very nice location and comfortable room.
The staff we encountered was excellent in all areas of the facility, friendly, helpful and professional minor maintenance in the room was required - broken hair blower hose, poor ventalation in the the bathroom
In general the hotel is very old. The room had a weird smell. The worst Hilton ever!!!
The hotel is renovated and up to the latest standards of comfort and luxury. It is quiet and soundproofed. Food is excellent. The only thing to criticize is Internet speed but they do offer a fast paid version if you need that.
It was close to the casino & a nice hotel A little pricey
Friendly staff,nice clean rooms We were given 10th floor room which is not ideal but maybe that was the only one availble.
The big bed, size of room, friendliness of staff, the tram stop right across the street from the hotel. Did not like that we could not use the fridge for our own things, and moving anything inside would incur a charge.
Hotel well positioned near to centre and walking distance to rail station. Good value for money with competant staff. Unfortunately a wedding party was staying at hotel on the Saturday, and were noisily walking the corridors till 3-30am. I'm sure an isolated case though.
nice hotel lovely bed and pillows, quiet hotel with good service nothing, will definately stay there again
The staff are excellent. The rooms are old,... needs major upgrade.
Location is what we were looking for. Very good hotel with friendly staff. Would go back and also recommend this place
location close to the town centre, beds very comfortable, possibility to smoke in the room the staff was extremely rude especially the night staff, I also found them quite aggressive
Hotel is dated but very clean. The breackfast is delicious No parking space and the public parking is very very expensive.Free parking from 23 to 12 Saturday to Sunday.
The room was spacious and very comfortable with a fantastic bathroom The Bar is quiote small and could do with being non-smoking
friendlyness of staff and personnel Additional light in bathroom before mirror
the hotel is a bit far from the city center but all rooms are full of light, clean and very comfortable..
Clean room, good dinner, good breakfast, friendly welcome.
Warm welcome and a large comfortable room Cold breakfast, Iron that didn't work strange room numbers (walked past my room)
Very comfortable rooms, good breakfast Not many tv channels
The hotel is brand new, so very clean and organised no
For the price, the room size was good. Bathroom was very clean and spacious. Breakfast wasn't that good.
We were pleased with the hotel, but had some problem finding it, since we came throught the own and not via the highway none
