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.
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!
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.
the friendly and welcoming atmophere created by its staff I would prefer for the hotelo to have some sports facilites
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.
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.
Great rooms, quiet location next to highway
excellent night portier, big room, good for 2 adults with 2 young children, nice location at lake
The location on the edge of the lake Items on the menu were overpriced.
The room had a suggestion of cigarette smoke
the location very slow service
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
The view The room are outdated. The restaurant is nothing special. The service is a catastrophy! Reception but especially in the restaurant!!
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 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.
lake to slow served at restaurant ,terase and bar
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.
Very basic hotel Having to pay for car parking
Easy to find from the motorway Fitness basic, No airconditioning, Restaurant closed 1 hour before time advertised
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.
Breakfast, private parking
excellent buffet breakfast no minibar in the room
The breakfast was very good The choices for food in the evening were very limited
Good staff, variety of breakfast options Bar closing time
Hospitality location Expensive breakfast @ 19 Euro
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
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.
in center of town, no, helpfull staff at all hours.
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.
Central location. The staff were excellent.
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
Decent size room, quiet. When I had difficulty to connect to their wireless internet there was no help available.
Location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good size room with large windows overlooking the town. Bed a little soft.
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.
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 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.
The staff was very friendly and professional. Free internet was not available.
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.
Free internet connection
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.
problem with air condition, very hot
Service, clean room, good breakfast.
Gorgeous rural location, friendly staff and clean, comfortable room Food and drinks a little expensive and the dining room was a bit dark
Very small rooms, badly furnished. Hotel was very noisy.
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
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.
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
Receptionist very helpful and friendly. Room clean and tidy No
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.
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.
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
free easy parking,room with balcony,good staff, terras in front of the hotel slept above the bar which was noisy
the comfort of the room and the space. It was all fine
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.
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
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.
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.
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, the room was so quiet so I had one of the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! Nothing
clean shower the proximity of the railway
Its position in relation to the railway station No
De stijl van 't hotel, klein, gezellig en stijlvol ingericht. nee
This is a very comfortable small hotel.
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
excellent, very nicely decorated and a great breakfast in the morning - the surrounding area of Hilversum proposes some excellent restaurants and great shoppong
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
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.
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.
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.
Friendly staff, nice ambience No laundry facilities, no lounge, no restaurant, too expensive in light of the aforementioned
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 .
good location around. The smell of the whole hotel space, because the ground floor is restaurant, the condition of the air is not so good, smell food all the time, not fresh. Moreover, some staff is not so friendly (a tall guy), no smile. Also one day, they forgot clean the sheet, neither change the trash in the room. Also misunderstanding message all the time: miss counting how many guests in room.
A lovely room surrounded by chestnut trees. Super friendly staff, that make everything possible. Bicycles are made available and good advice on nice bike routes starting from the hotel. Breakfast in a beautiful garden and excellent lunch (at 35 EUR good value for money) on the flowered terrace.
rooms have decent size, garden view poor noise isolation (closing doors of other rooms will wake you) ; reception does not answer phone calls
Older building, with charming rooms with balcony and view to a most wonderful garden. The equipment is not lasted state of the art, however we did not miss anything. Good kitchen and most deliciouse breakfast, which is quite unusual for NL. Service at dinner time could be a little bit faster. Wine prices are above the average, especially for NL
Rooms are nice and clean, fresh towels every day. Beautiful surroundings, ideal for cycling and hiking. Two rooms were booked for a week, but we had to change rooms after three days because other guests requested one of the rooms. Price for breakfast (15,00 €) is too much, at least for a family, that is why we choose not to eat breakfast in the hotel.
The hotel itself was great - It seems to me it should be a 4 stars hotel, not 3. Room was clean, great green window view, serenity ... We went there for a taste of "rural" Holland after a week in Amsterdam. We didn't have a car. It was a nice place for cycling and relaxing (check out the mini-golf if you get there), but this village is quite dead - no super/mini market, and all the restaurants close at 9 pm. Watch out car-less travellers ... Also, almost no English tourist infos
Excellent Food, Staff very Efficient & Friendly.The situation is super being alongside the river. Will Return later in the year.
If the hotel, or restaurant, shows its menu and price at the entrance, it is very helpful.
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
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
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.
pleasant hotel, sufficient facilities for a short stay and well organised and safe; hotel was clean
Freindly staff. None
The hotel was very central and clean. Staff were efficient and friendly. no
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.
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.
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.
Staff very very helpful, friendly and made me feel at home. Very unusal these days The breakfast was a little basic
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
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.
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
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.
Nothing special Both food and hotell were too expensive compared to similar other hotels used on out roundtrip
was a pleasant relaxed atmosphere, with an easygoing freindly management
the resturant is good.
Nice people and good value place. Right place to eat the most wonderful cheese(Gouda) in Netherland...
A functioning farm, beautiful old buildings. We stayed in rooms built into the old hay barn. Clean, pleasant and renovated in a modern and practical way. Shared bathroom between 2 rooms but we were the only guests at the time.Very friendly people, ready to answer all questions. Great to have milk fresh from the dairy and cheese made on the premises for breakfast!
Very friendly staff, big but cosy room.
