Good location, but the room and billing let it down.

The advantage was that the room (406) was at the back of the hotel, as the Kermis (fair) was in town. The bed was comfortable, I personally found the controls in the bathroom easy (Amsterdam airport has the same controls as the wc in some of the toilet areas there) and really appreciated the rainforest shower.
It is quite a trek to rooms starting with the number 4. Up in the lift to floor 3, then walk to the back of the hotel and take a second lift (I only got in it once and decided to bring my suitcase down the stairs as it sounded so old and creaky).
While I couldn't hear the fair, I certainly could hear (with the window closed) the people chatting and smoking outside, while standing on some paving slabs (see photo). The view from inside the room was of a little patio area with paving slabs, water and the wall opposite. If you did open the window and stuck your head out and looked to the left, you could see the church.
I'm not sure whether it was due to the hotel or to the booking site, but the charge on my credit card bill just said "Hotel via " - as I'd booked more than 1 hotel that day, I had to go through and check it was this hotel via the amount that was charged.
Would I stay here again? No. less
