After some misunderstandings with our reservation we decided to go to Hotel Emmen. The name doesn't sound spectacular but we where hoping our room was. We booked a themed suite called the Holywood Suite. Our first choice the Jungle suite wasn't available unfortunalty. This room is designed in a over the top Holywood style. The room is in the corner of the hotel a bit tucked away, after a short small hallway we arrived at room number 220 also tagged as the Hollywood Suite on the door.
You enter in a small hallway with partly shiny wallpaper with kiss imprints and part with faces. In this hallway there's also the toilet. The second door opens into the room, on the left two large cabinets with glass doors. These cabinets carry some slippers and a water cooker with complimentary hot drinks. Between these cabinets is a mensize silver framed mirror. When continuing into the room are two rede velvets chairs with silver woodwork which stand next to a small table.
In the center of the room is a huge jacuzzi which has a mirror and multi armed light fixture above it. Then there's a big plasma screen which can be turned towards the bed, bath or chairs.
Next to the bed is another table with two red leather chairs, the room also has a double sink with lights around the mirrors. The next hallway holds the shower with a kingsize showerhead, to top it all off the room also has a private steamroom. The steamroom is large enough to fit 4 to 6 people and also has a shower in it for cooling down during a steam session.
The negatives of the room are, no airconditioning, it has a balcony which runs allong the whole floor and isn't seperated from the other rooms. So when taking a bath closing the heavy velvet curtains is advisable if you don't want that one of your neighbours decides to take a look in to the room. The bed itself is good and firm, the pillows are very thin and not that soft, these also could be up for improvement. Internet is available for a fee, you can buy time online just start up your browser and type in www.hotspots.nl and everything is explained. 100 minutes will cost you 9,95 euro but other timeslots are available to. It is also possible to buy cards at the hotel reception, laptops can be rented also our just use the terminals.
The restaurant on a Sunday can be very crowded, upon arrival they asked us which time we would like to have dinner for both of our nights. Around 08:30 most of the crowds are gone.
