Hotel La Reine (Eindhoven, Netherlands)

3 Case Rating


Location

Located within s short walking distance of city centre (5 minutes) where shops, bars and restaurant even next door to hotel.Though they advertise self parking, its a public car park about 5 minutes walk away at €4.50 all day until 9pm- 9am when its free. It is quite open and not really near the hotel so when you have a lot of baggage its a bit of hassle unless you park very close for a few minutes but the streets are resident zone parking. So be quick.

Room

Room is quite a simple but is an interesting Dutch hotel room with a lot of character to it. The proud Dutch orange fabric head board radiates the kitsch vibe in the room above two twin beds placed together. The room though had a relaxing ambience. Partly because of the overhead hanging light that has slated wooden lamp which radiates this lines of light round sort of like a sick ball but with lines.
The bed was of adequate comfort, prefer not to have two beds together as essentially it is a single bed but I slept ok. Each side of the bed had convenient plug sockets & a small ball shaped lamps again creating this relaxing 1970’s vibe. One side had a telephone but its not for outgoing calls only reception to get hold of you.
Thick brown curtains and a dark wooden desk is offered that is adequate for working. Kettles also presented there with a bowl of teas and coffee. A convenient luggage rack and tall mirror is offered to the side of desk. Above is the TV with over 40 channels all satellite that included Dutch, International cable channels that are in English plus French channel TV monde.
There is a thin tall wardrobe in the room with a small safe inside, good for phone but not for small laptops, coat hangers and spare pillow is also in there.
The bathroom is entered thru wooden sliding doors on one side of bed, quite small with open shower- offering both rain and separate shower head. Amenities are the absolute minimum with two dispensers for combined Hair/Body/hands both at sink and in shower. its a push dispenser and quite annoying as the room I had the lid kept falling of. Overall the disappointing aspect of the hotel as even the towels are small.
Overall it is a relaxing room quite cosy and feels slightly 1960 – 70’s but re-birth furniture not from that time. Large windows are offered and offers good natural light and view since I was on the top (4th) floor.

Facilities

The hotel does not offer parking but they do advise at a public car park 5 minutes walk away. Free WIFI in which worked well for multiple devices.

There is a vending machine by the reception for chocolates and drinks. I was offered breakfast at 12 Euro for buffet at their sister hotel a block away but did not try it.

Staff

Only met one staff, a very nice lady whom was very clear about where to park and where to walk into city centre. Every times came in was greeted, didn’t meet any other staff but she presented a good standard of staff service welcoming and efficient. She even offered help me with my bags which was very kind but I was ok.

Overall a nicely positioned hotel for Eindhoven with good value for money if you just want a simple but interesting room with a unique ambience and not concerned about other facilities. I would stay here again.
