We stayed for one night to recover from a long haul flight. The hotel is located in a historic street and has pubs and cafes nearby. We were a little worried when we checked in that nearby World Cup celebrations would make sleep impossible but no noise got to our room. The breakfast was good also.

Stayed: June 2018, travelled with family

The location can't be beat. The street food fair is right outside of the hotel. During our stay it was hot and rained but people just danced in the street during the rain. Great restaurants within one block of the hotel including Ministry of Crab. Only negative would be the small elevators.

Stayed: May 2018

Spend 7 nights there on business and was overall very happy with the hotel which offers exactly what you are looking for. Clean rooms, good service, decent internet connection (although mine on 5th floor was not working very good).

Location of the hotel was just perfect for me. Walking distance to office near the Fort. Very lively in the evening as Dutch Hospital area is possible to be considered as a meeting point.

Housekeeping was working exactly as expected - did not disturb and quickly cleaned what was necessary.

Quality of breakfasts is not the best, but is reasonable.

Rooftop "Botanik" restaurant is having good selection of very tasty finger food and small meals.

I will come back to this place.
Overall really perfect value for money.

Had two very quiet nights there. Breakfast was good as were the services. There are some restaurants nearby and even a Burger King right around the corner. There isn't too much to see right in that vicinity but the mini taxis are super cheap to take you to museums, etc. Fast Wi-Fi and no negatives to name.

very beautiful rooms, service at check-in was very slow. both clerks were distracted by something and i had to wait for them to finish. we got interrupted a few times on check-in.
the rest of the stay was uneventful. good rooms, bathroom had a smell in it. maybe because of the rains or the drains. water leaked out of the shower. breakfast was average. dinner was good.
location is great! the best.
