    Amazing food in a very...”

    Of course the main attraction here is the food - and our dinner was divine: it fully lived up to the expectations and we will never forget it. The rooms are also very nice, spacious and comfortable. ...
    I never understand why hotels like this have two single beds pushed together, instead of a double bed. It made the night less comfortable and less cosy.

    The kitchy atmosphere of the room, the bathroom because it was unpractical and of a rather questionable taste, the staff was trying too hard that doesn’t give a comforting feeling.

    Diner and breakfast are amazing!
    Rooms are very simply, small, and furniture is old. The price for the room is too much for what you get.

    An amazing place - truly exceptional.”

    What an amazing place - truly exceptional. A former female prison transformed into a beautiful luxurious hotel &amp; restaurant. The staff were warm, friendly and very welcoming. The room was stunning. The restaurant is deservedly world class. The chef&#47;owner greeted us with the menu. His wife presided over front of house. They clearly put as much effort into the front of house staff as they do the food.
    Nothing - it was faultless.

    Exquisite romantic getaway.”

    Personal aervice, unique character, and exceptional dining experience.
    The pepper flavored welcome tea was a nice gesture but perhaps the option of plaiin tea for those who can not tolerate the spicy flavor combinations could be considered.

    Superb”

    Bed is great (Auping), so is the tub&#47; shower. There are rope&#39;s and slippers, etc. Big B&amp;O tele. Breakfast is fabulous after all, it&#39;s Michelin Star restaurant.
    Coffee machine was broke but that was compensated with two freshly made cappuccino&#39;s brought up through roomservice, free of charge. So maybe this has to be on the plus side of the review box. We went to a concert in De Spiegel opposite De Liberije, so location was great but the whole city center is real close by.

    The facilties look great. Good space and bed. Temperture system works well.
    Some of the facilties need some maintenance. During the day it sounded like there lives an eliphant on the attic, just compensate with loud music :p

    Great getaway with partner”

    Location and parking is perfect. Staff is friendly, great hospitality. You are being offered a drink while you wait.
    No value for money. The rooms are tidy and clean, but for this amount of money I expect a different room; it was a bit outdated and there was no bath. This was disappointing. Also, we were charged for breakfast. This should have been included in the hotel-price. Also considering we had dinner in the hotel restaurants.
