Very good location, high level trained staff, always helpful and professional, beautiful buildings, garden and breakfast room/restaurant. Very good breakfast. Spacious room and big bathroom.
I had the "queen size" bed but it was made of two separate matrasses so not so comfortable if you land in the middle of it while sleeping and if you always try to stay on one side it's a bit pointless to have bigger bed. The both matrasses would really easily move to the sides making a hole in the middle...
Staff was extremely friendly and professional. Always available to help; makes you feel they are there for you and to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The location is very convenient. It is a very sophisticated hotel
Quality of bed was not great.
Matras was hard
1. Location in the city centre, not far from the main RS 2. Own private parking free of charge 3. A very picturesque historical building, with its own territory, inner yard, statues etc 4. Security - well-organized entrance to the building 5. Extremely friendly and efficient staff at the reception and at the breakfast 6. Tasty and good-quality breakfast, nice restaurant with big windows 7. Lovely and important small details - umbrellas everywhere, unlimited green apples free of charge, coffee machine at the room, black branded slippers
In general - nice and I would come back, but in my opinion overpriced and not a 5 star hotel level, good 4 stars 1. Rooms are of boring style and looking tired / cheap, missing some historical authentic spirit and luxury touch that is so important for this hotel “with some story behind”. Weak water pressure, no heating regulation, no bottled water (I know one can drink tap water in NL, but ...). Hairdryer looks like from the 90ties 2. Poor variety at breakfast. Really poor: 5 tea-cup-sized bowls of vegetables, 3 deserts, almost no fresh fruit, no omelette and pancakes cooked for you by request. Though - everything’s very tasty and of excellent quality 3. Some (not all!) waiters seem to be scared of people
Everything ! Excellent staff, room & facilities ! The reception staff were exceptional ! So efficient & friendly & very informative. Nothing was too much trouble. In fact we stayed an extra night. Beautiful setting & great location ! We would definitely return to the Karel V !!!!
