Hard to see it was a hotel, but the saff was nice. Breakfast was good. The hallway had some kind of a mysterious smell but the rooms were OK.

Entry procedure for arrival was unclear. The bell for entry wasn't marked as such, and the main entrance was around th corner from that indicated on the map. Friendly greeting from staff, very efficient and helpful. Sensor for switching bathroom light on was inefficient. The light stayed on for too long, and was very bright in the middle of the night. Was centrally located, in walking distance to the Old Town, and it's not a bad walk from the Dampoort Railway Station.

Very nice hotel for the price paid. As always in cheaper hotels, there are some minuses. To fight noise from busy street stuff should offer earplugs.
