Comfortable 4* hotel in excellent location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 9, 2015

I stayed at the 4* Hampshire Hotel Crown Eindhoven with my wife and her parents for 3 nights during Easter weekend in April 2015.

We booked our stay through www.booking.com and paid €70 per night for each double room with breakfast included.

We settled our bill, by credit card, upon checking out of the hotel at the end of our stay. The payment was pre-authorised upon check-in and a €50 deposit was held.

Location

The hotel enjoys a fabulous central location on Vestdijk, less than 5 minutes' walk from the central train and bus stations. Upon arrival, we caught bus #400 from Eindhoven airport to the central station (journey time: 20 minutes; cost: €3.50 per person) and made the short walk from there to the hotel.

The hotel is located next door to the Heuvel shopping mall and only a couple of minutes' walk from the main square of Markt, with its outdoor cafes and restaurants.

Immediately outside the hotel is Dommelstraat, a street lined with restaurants offering all types of cuisine, while the busy nightlife street of Stratumseind (with numerous bars and cafes) is a 5-10 minutes' walk away.

We walked from the hotel to the Philips Museum in around 5 minutes and from the hotel to the DAF Museum in a little over 10 minutes.

The location really is ideal, right in the heart of the city, with a plethora of eating and drinking establishments in the immediate vicinity.

Bedroom

Our room (#506) was classed as a "Comfort Double Room" and was located on the hotel's fifth floor with views towards the train station. There are two lifts in the hotel and we never had to wait very long for one to take us up to our room.

The double bed was very comfortable with a warm duvet and large soft pillows. We slept very well throughout our stay.

There was a small flat screen TV (Philips, of course! This is Eindhoven after all!) which picked up around 30 local and international channels, including BBC1, BBC2, BBC News and CNN.

Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel and guests have the option of using the free connection or paying for a faster connection. We used the free connection and it was more than adequate for our needs.

The room contained a good sized wardrobe which housed a safe (free to use and big enough to store my netbook) and an iron and ironing board. There were a couple of drawers next to the wardrobe, as well as shelves on either side of the bed. A writing desk, a small coffee table and a couple of chairs were also provided.

A small (empty) fridge was housed in a unit beneath the TV.

There were ample electrical sockets throughout the bedroom and bathroom (for recharging cameras and devices overnight) and a very effective heating/aircon system which was controlled via a dial and various switches on the wall.

The bathroom was a reasonable size with a small bathtub and a shower. The bathtub was too small to sit in; it was too short and very narrow at the feet end. This wasn't a problem for us, we only used the shower. The shower had decent water pressure and an endless supply of hot water.

Fresh towels and basic toiletries (shower gel/shampoo dispensers mounted on the wall next to the washbasin and in the shower) were provided. No other toiletries were provided, but a note stated that reception would be happy to supply any items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, shaving kits) that guests had forgotten to bring with them.

Overall, our room was comfortable and functional. We didn't spend much time in there, but it served its purpose as a place to wash, sleep and relax.

Breakfast

Breakfast is served in the ground floor dining room (7:30am – 11:00am at weekends and 6:30am – 10:00am on weekdays).

Breakfast was included in our room rate, but would otherwise have been rather expensive (we saw it advertised at €17.50 one morning).

The self-service buffet included cereals (cornflakes, muesli and granola), dried apricots and prunes, natural yoghurt, strawberry yoghurt, forest fruit curd and various fresh fruit (which varied each day and included oranges, kiwis, apples, grapes and melon).

There was a good choice of brown and white bread and bread rolls (topped with various seeds and filled with various dried fruits), as well as croissants and pastries. There were cold cuts of ham, chicken, beef and cheese. Cooked items included hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs and bacon (which was nice and crispy!).

The available drinks were orange juice, strawberry juice, coffee (various styles from a coffee machine) and a multitude of teas (including lemon, mint, cinnamon, cherry, strawberry, melon, blackcurrant, rooibos, green, Earl Grey and English Breakfast).

General

All of the staff that we met (albeit briefly) during our stay were friendly and helpful.

After checking out of our room, we were able to store our luggage (free of charge) in a secure room until we travelled to the airport later in the afternoon.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hampshire Hotel Crown Eindhoven. It is the perfect hotel for a weekend city break. The location is exceptionally good, being just a few minutes' walk from the central train and bus stations as well as the shopping, dining and entertainment options of the city centre. Our room was comfortable, with a lovely warm and soft bed, a flat screen TV and free wi-fi. The buffet breakfast was tasty and varied and set us up nicely for a day of sightseeing. We would happily stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody looking for a central hotel for business or leisure purposes.

Directions: Located on Vestdijk, less than 5 minutes' walk from the central train and bus stations and just 2 minutes' walk from the main square of Markt.
