              Its an impeccable 4 star hotel, ultra modern and stylish, I could not believe we were only charged 80 euro per night, very quiet at night. Next to the Blijdorp zoo. Free parking.

              the personnel from the restaurant

              the reception desk personnel was bad, booked room was not ready, had to wait 2 hours before we got the key (we entered the hotel at 4 pm) restaurant choise is far less then other hotels, situation is bad because of the traffic for the entrance to Blijdorp Zoo. The pool was in an other location adn had to pay for the entrance. This is not Van Der Valk as we knew from some years ago. No value for money.

            • Single

              Quiet well insulated rooms.

              Breakfast should be from 0600 during the week for business users as 0630 is too late for many.

            • Older travelers

              The location was ok.

              By booking the Hotel there was no choice, so you can only ask for a twin room in remarks//wishes, but coming in the Hotel suddenly they see your wish and they cannot help you to fullfill, because the Hotel is booked.So, an anouncement of classic room is not enough to be placed in your booking list. Rooms are very small, but everything is there. There are better V.D. Valk hotels than this one!!

              how quite the rooms were. Best I've stayed in.

              The bed was a little low, especialy as I had a room desgined for a wheelchair user.

              The Gym in the neighbourhood was nice (€10).

              Very unkindly and almost no service. The beds had very worn-out mattresses.

              Quite and Clean

              It is more about Booked.net. I expected that the price in Booked.net include everything but they were an unexpected touristic tax to pay and the breakfast was not included in the price.
