The hotel is located close to the train station of Alphen aan de Rijn, in the town centre. It is approximately 30 minutes drive from Amsterdam. The rooms are medium in size and are decorated in shades of green and yellow. Each rooms has whicker chairs and a table. The bathrooms are again medium in size and have jade coloured tiled walls and white tiled floors. Both are in a good condition. The restaurant is large and is carpeted in red. It has marble effect tables and offers an international cuisine. A low rise grey modern looking building with few redeeming features. The reception area is small with no real seperate seating area. On entry there is a green tartan carpet and a small water feature, the reception leads on to the restaurant. A good hotel for small groups or for those indviduals close to Amsterdam, Leiden or the Hague, however they would benefit from having their own transportation. 080803.
