neat room with bathroom (only downside; shared toilet). nice view over the square and the employees are very sweet (they even put rose petals on the bed when I indicated that I wanted to). would definitely go there again!


The perfect central place to sleep in Amersfoort. Staff are very very welcoming and friendly. The suite is spacious, a bit dated, but is fine. Good price. View through the attic window on the Onze Lieve Vrouwentoren is very nice and at the front a view of the square (Lieve Vrouwenkerkhof). Nice food and drink what you can expect from a pub. In addition to Kilkenny and Guinness, various specialty beers on tap, cans and bottle. We will definitely come back here.


Great stay. Small but beautiful. Great for a weekend in A'foort. Located really in the center. Beautiful city garden on the water. Friendly staff. Nice whiskey, delicious breakfast. Got good advice where to park. Unfortunately the TV can only be viewed via link with your own phone or i-pad.....


What a nice place in the middle of the center. As a real Dutchman I don't like to pay too much and that is certainly not an issue here. Booked a small but very neat room for next to nothing, from where you can easily walk into the center.
