BEST WESTERN Eindhoven (Eindhoven, Netherlands)

4 Case Rating


Location

Hotel is quite well located, just on the outskirts of the city centre in a residential area. Depending where in the city centre you are headed, it’s only a 10 – 20 minutes walk to the centre. Nearby is a supermarket, cinema and some restaurants. Bars & shops as well.

Room

Room on top floor was quite a simple room, a notch up from Ibis but similar set up. The bed was soft , one of the softest mattress I have slept in. It’s ok but a bit of shock when your home mattress is firm. It offers these 4 pillows that aren’t very soft so it’s a bit mis match plus they lay the duvet all the way to the back under pillows. which seems like they can’t be bothered to make a bed right but then that just might be their standardised way. Behind bed in centre is a convenient lights main switch plus either side are tiny bedside tables with lamps and Flexi-lights. Ok for reading but they aren’t right over the bed etc. Plus a phone on one table . No nearby plug sockets. A jazzy arm chair comes with a small table and then there is a very small desk where lamp exists and two EU plug sockets. Facing the bed , to the side is a TV with 28 or so channels from all over Europe. It’s seems standard cable but good selection.
There is an open wardrobe with coat hangers , luggage rack with kettle and some teas/coffee plus a safe – not large enough for laptop but money, tablets and phones all fit ok.
The bathroom reminds me of IBIS hotels design, very poky with a shower cubicle – they use a combined shampoo / shower gel dispenser but best western does include a mini body lotion item , vanity set and odd face towels by the brand Bhuvana. There is a hair dryer plus EU sockets
The room has a large radiator , as well as a air conditioner unit. Windows can also open but quite noisy as main road is outside. Overall I slept ok but the mattress is so soft, the room is clean but overall quite small and simple for BW. The noise which can be heard throughout did wake me up a few times- both the road and other guests. One thing to say is a odd un welcoming smell as you walk in but that is not that noticeable after a while.

Facilities

The hotel offers free secure WIFI for multiple devices. It worked fast and was well.
There is a bar and restaurant but did not use these but looked nice and colourful. Breakfast is charged at 15 Euros. I did not try since the supermarket a 2 min walk was a cheaper option.
There is also free parking but it’s not a very orderly car park ram packed too hard to park but I guess I was there with last free place at night.
Decor in the hotel is colourful and it is very clean. They do offer some vending machines both drinks and snack items at reception. There is also some conference rooms.
The hotel does offer a small elevator and they offer some airport luggage carts for you to use for your bags.

Staff

Staff are very pleasant and helpful. AsIi arrived the car park was explained to me as too full so told which streets to park nearby which are free during the day- was a bit disappointing to hear as this was one of the reason I booked hotel was for free parking. Later though when i was about to move car from directly outside (which is free after 9pm-9am) and asked staff which streets to go for, I was told a space became available and staff were keen to tell me. Overall check-in and check-out was fast and staff did so in a friendly manner.

Overall the hotel room is ok but felt slightly over priced. Walls are also thin so you hear you a lot during the night including the road outside. It was quite a convenient location but I think I would try somewhere else if I come to Eindhoven again. Somewhere more quieter room as I am a light sleeper, plus the mattress was just too soft for my back. It was a last minute booking so perhaps the £62 rate is higher than their normal rate for a Thursday night.
