Best Western Blue Square, is quite literally a big blue building. Once you get inside though it is anything but blue! All the staff that we dealt with during our stay were super helpful and nothing was ever to much trouble. Our room was a little small but it was spotlessly cleaned and our beds were very comfortable. This hotel...

We have just returned from our relaxing stay in this hotel.it is about 30 minutes on the 69 bus from the airport and busses run quite frequently. We arrived late in the evening and the restaurant had already closed, so we resorted to snacks from the vending machine which kept us going until morning. Our twin room was warm and...

It was very good, comfortable, hassle free stay in the hotel. Rooms are very spacious and clean. There is no noise from outside even though my room was facing the main road. We had initially not booked for breakfast but the generosity showed by restaurant staff made us book 2 days breakfast with the hotel.

It is a very nice, clean hotel. There are very good connections to Center, to air port, and to Keukenhof. The hotel is closed to open mart, and good restaurants. It is very modern hotel and nice staff.

We were disappointed with this hotel. Our room smelled when we arrived and the carpet looked dirty. The hot water was only sometimes hot and when i asked at reception one night for some cold drinking water, i was told they didn't have any. Our bathroom was clean but the door didn't close and the place just needs some decorating...

Whilst out of the city centre it is handily placed on two tram lines and one bus route to different parts - about 20 mins ; very frequent and efficient. Our experience at the Blue Square was one that would have us recommend it for a short break. Staff were nothing less than helpful and polite throughout our four day...
