    « Wonderful stay »

    We stayed two nights. The location is great and parking is straight under the hotel. Our room was huge with a very comfortable bed and great linens. Breakfast was a feast. Fresh fruit, lots of hot food, cereals ...wonderful choice. Loved the staff. They were especially friendly and helpful. A short walk to the town square. Loved our time here.

    « Beautiful city, fab hotel »

    This hotel was excellent, modern, clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was full of choices and the rooms were well equipped and very clean. Huge beds! Located close to the city centre, just a 5 minute walk. Highly recommend the hotel and the city, We had a guided tour which was well worth it to hear the history and see the quaint buildings. The country as a whole are such nice people. Its is kept spotlessly clean whichever city you visit, airport and stations too.

    « Good hotel but strange bathroom »

    It's a very nice hotel, with friendly staff and good facilities .... one big minus: the bathroom is an open bathroom incorporated in the bedroom. No separate lights, no privacy, so definitely a weird concept.

    « Not Great »

    The room was clean, modern and the space was used to the maximum. However I had a ripped bottom sheet because it was worn and needed to be thrown away! There was a fridge on the room, with nothing in not even complementary water. As for the tea and coffee in the room there was 2 tea bags, 2 coffee sachets one was decaf, 2 saugars and 2 powderd milk, really ! No toiletries our shower pump dispenser was empty. Breakfast was ok but was an extra. Would book again

    « Lovely hotel, friendly staff great location »

    The only issue I have about the room design is the fact that the shower area and washbasin are basically within the room. The toilet at least is in its own enclosed cubicle but would have preferred a proper bathroom. otherwise great room and the hotel was everything you expect from this brand. Parking is quite expensive but reasonable and at least it is in an underground carpark with a lift to all floors. you can stay there for 24 hours and appears that Best Western get a reduced rate. Maybe I'm just used to parking for free.

    « Will stay again.... »

    I stayed for 5 nights in this hotel between 25th and 30th September,2016. They gave me Room 110 facing the canal and traffic junction. It was a nice sight to watch. The outside noise did not reach the inside of the room. It was amazing to watch how the road on the canal opens up to allow a passing boat, stopping the road traffic and restarting same in just about 90 seconds. Room was spacious enough (as I stayed alone). I opted for a shower instead of bath with tub. Staff at the front office and breakfast room were friendly and helpful. I had a problem with my suitcase' telescopic handle for which they gave me some tools to set it right. Gesture appreciated. Breakfast was usual fare and good. The place was quite spacious to accommodate even a big crowd coming at the same time for the breakfast. I could do my 5 kms walk on 3 evenings just going around the hotel, walking along the canals. The famous Gouda cheese market as well as the shopping market are just a 10 mts walk from the hotel. I enjoyed my stay and will surely stay again. Rtn.J.Ganesh

    « Very Comfortable Stay »

    Excellent quality hotel. Good professional service. Good size rooms. Very comfy beds. Toilet/shower/sink are separate from each other. Slightly quirky shower, needs to be used at low pressure otherwise you'll flood the sink floor area and then the bedroom. Breakfast would have benefited from more hot food items. The small omelettes were a nice touch, other items were boiled eggs, grilled tomatoes and crispy bacon.

    « modern, good location »

    wold have been an even higher rating for a hotel that was very smart and well located, but the bath was separated from the toilet (which many will find useful) had what we felt was a design fault in that it was not easy to get out of. One could move a moveable step to the bath (that is what they expect people to do if they want) but it did mean it wasn't as easy as it should be. I have spent a lot of words on what is essentially a minor point. Overall, a really good stay in a modern design conscious hotel

    « very good location, attention to detail and modern rooms »

    We enjoyed our stay in the Best Western Plus City Hotel Gouda. The interior decorating has been done very stylishly with a lot of attention to detail and is an hommage to the city of Gouda cheese and its many monumental buildings. The location is a good stone's throw from the inner city, a really convenient and well within ten minutes walk along streets with a lot of monumental buildings as well. Gouda is a nice city to visit and this hotel is a good place to do it from. Very friendly and smiling staff. Great breakfast selection. The hotel has been built with build-in atmosphere. Very good! Although you have to be able to cope with the very very bright yellow in rooms and the hallways (must be the cheese theme:-).

    Whenever at the restaurant or bar, ask for Danny. Great service.A major point for business travellers at times is hotels being able to make you feel at home. The presence of a gym around ia valuable .

    « A one day stay in Gouda »

    We were on cycling holiday and the hotel was on the bike route. It was satisfactory or better in all ways except difficulty in signing onto the internet. We had to go to the lobby to get connected. It is a distance away from the town centre requiring a taxi to and from the hotel.

    « Great hotel »

    This new hotel is nicely located in the center of Gouda. Everything is (more than) OK: the rooms, the design, the breakfast, the kind employees, the lounge, the parking (reasonable charge of 10 euros / 24 hours). We will go there again.

    « Good location in centre of town, easy to drive to, plenty of underground parking »

    We were given a free upgrade as the hotel was full with visiting national rowing teams, so we enjoyed the penthouse suite on the top floor which was amazeballs! - Huge bed, the largest shower cubical I have ever seen, a roll-top bath, seating area and a kettle & cups to make tea/coffee. We are familar with Gouda, but this property is relatively new (less than 5 years old) . However we found it easily following the river, and drove straight into the underground public car park. Go to level -1 and then take the lift up to the hotel reception. You get a discount on the car parking fee when staying in the hotel, - it cost us €10 for overnight parking. The cost of breakfast seemed a tad expensive at €15.25 each, however, on a Sunday morning little else would be open in the city. The breakfast included a wide range of breads, cheeses, cold meats, cearals, and also cooked bacon. I would certainly stay here again.

    « Excellent.......but! »

    Stayed here for one night during a cycling trip around the Netherlands. The facilities are superb and the hotel is excellent. The staff were most helpful. One little note. We had been cycling for 80 kilometres, then to be told that the restaurant was booked up with the New Zealand rowing team, so we would have to go into the town, for a meal was the last thing we wanted to hear. Why couldn't the New Zealand rowing team go there? It wasn't that good and just like a cafe. Spoilt the experience.

    « Highly recommend »

    I stayed 2 nights at this hotel while travelling solo through The Netherlands on a bike trip. The hotel is well located, modern and my room (top floor) was perfect. The breakfast buffet was by far the best I've had... besides the regular bread, cheese, meats, yogurt, fruit and eggs they also offered pancakes, Crispy bacon, omlettes, lox... and just an overall larger selection of breads, cheese, fruit, etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The pictures below are my room and the view from my room.

    « Fine »

    The positives: Good breakfast, hot & cold buffet with good coffee. Clean room and bathroom. Good sleep quality. Good AC & WiFi. But: location isn't great. Looking out over an ugly bus parking area and some kind of a picnic area(?). The trainee receptionist , when we checked in, was abandoned to her own devices by her senior colleagues, while they chatted. They were aware that she was having difficulties but did nothing to assist her for quite a while. Unfair to her and no care for us. We were surprised, at breakfast, to see all the staff handling food without gloves. Unusual features: the (spotlessly clean) shower and sink are actually in the room, only the toilet is separate. The two armchairs in the room were like something out of a doctor's waiting room, small, upright and uncomfortable.

    « Spacious Rooms, Great Breakfast »

    We had two rooms at this hotel. An executive suite, and an executive. We fit 2 adults and 2 kids in the executive suite, and 2 adults and one child in the executive room. They are very spacious. We had 3rd floor, and could see the steeple of St. John's chapel. The air worked great, nice fridge and safe, plenty of storage space, and awesome water pressure. They have a conditioning soap/shampoo in a dispenser in the shower. A couple things to note, there is no shower curtain. We rigged a towel from a hook to the blow dyer to give some privacy. There is a half wall that separates the bath area from the room, so it's not really a problem. Also, they do not give washcloths (this is not uncommon in Europe, though). I needed an iron, and they had a nice ironing board and iron they brought from downstairs. We absolutely loved the breakfast. They ladies working were so friendly. They had a great coffee machine that offered lattes, coffee, cappuccinos, etc. So many fresh breads, fruits, cheese, meat, and warm items, too. Amazing. We didn't eat in the restaurant for any meals. We did eat off the bar menu on the afternoon we arrived. The man suggested some great snacks, and we all enjoyed them. The hotel has parking underneath it, but there is a small fee. It is a few short minutes to walk into the town center. The walk is gorgeous. You can walk to the train station within 15 minutes. This is a great hotel with friendly staff. We'll gladly stay here again if we get the chance.

    « Nice Hotel, Good Location, Friendly Staff »

    I stayed here a night to see the cheese market. The staff was very friendly and helpful in helping me find my way around town. I walked about 15 minutes from the train station. The going wasn't so smooth on the sidewalks and streets even with my wheeled suitcase, but I managed. It was about a ten minute walk to the town square where the cheese market is held, and where a lot of restaurants are. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was really good offering a large selection.

    « Very good hotel in nice location »

    We were on a 7 day bicycle trip through the Netherlands and this was the best hotel of our trip. Excellent service, friendly staff, nice quiet room and very good food. Dinner and breakfast were way above average. They accommodated my gluten free diet very well with good tasting gluten free bread which was rather rare on our trip in the Netherlands.

    « Great Location »

    The hotel is in a great location, a 10 to 15 minute walk to the station and 10 minute walk to the market square. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was very clean. The buffet breakfast gave you a good choice and made a excellent start to the day. I was a bit disappointed with the room. I had booked an executive room and I was looking forward to a sofa bed, so I was disappointed to find that we had a small single bed as well as our double bed. Like other people I found the wash hand basin too high and the bath/shower difficult to get into. I would have preferred to have a conventional bathroom rather than the open plan bedroom/bathroom.

    « Great night in Gouda »

    Hotel was very clean and modern. It is about 10 minutes walk to the main square. The breakfast is included and it was great. There was a lot of variety. Town is pronounced Howda and so is the cheese. I never knew this. Enjoy the town. The canals are also nice and so is the area around the church. The church is about 120 metres long and narrow.

    « Great hotel, wonderful location »

    My husband and I stayed at this gem of a hotel in Gouda when we were on a eight day bicycle ride from Amsterdam to Bruges in Belgium. The hotel is just four years old but it is clear that much thought has gone into making this converted warehouse a cozy and comfortable hotel. The public rooms are well designed as are the bedrooms. Breakfast is a vast spread, very good quality. it is also conveniently located such that it is a short pleasant walk to the main tourist sites in the city, most spectacular of which is the church with its beautiful stained glass windows. it is one of the truly excellent Best Western Plus.

    « Modern Comfortable Hotel »

    Stayed at this hotel for two nights for business in July 2016. The hotel had been renovated recently and was very nice. The decor was modern and thw hotel was spotless. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant one of the nights and the food was excellent also. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and also gave excellent advice on places to visit. Gouda itself is a beautiful town. It is very small but very picturesque. It had a very laid back feel and has plenty of choices for eating out. All in all a nice few days.

    « "Think globally, act locally" - NOT »

    We were told that Gouda requires its citizens to separate and recycle their waste, but this apparently does not apply to hotels. This hotel does not recycle ANYTHING, not even paper. We had collected a few (normally) recyclable items such as paper and plastic. We asked the maid what we could do with them and were advised that they do not recycle at all. We double checked at the front desk and found out this was in fact the case. For this reason I will never stay at this hotel again. The irony is that they have a big sign when you approach reception that says "Think globally, act locally". This is obviously just a cute phrase they used and not something they take seriously. As for the rooms, I did not like the layout. The sink and shower area are completely integrated with the room without a door or any separation.

    « Stop over on a cycle tour »

    This is a great hotel, and terrific value, very friendly staff, and great breakfast. Rooms were excellent and beds very comfy after a long bike ride. Only slight caveat is that there's no totally undercover bike storage just open bike shed.

    « Still the same problems »

    Second visit. Great hotel, good rooms, great location, reception very helpful but the restaurant lets it down. Almost impossible to get a drink in the bar when restaurant is open, quote - to busy to serve you!. Breakfast great but flawed - day 1 no cooked tomatoes or omelettes available 2/3 of cooked options. Day 2 no hot chocolate - machine out of water, no orange juice - run out of concentrate, coffeee machines which are so slow anyway, warning of need to empty coffee grounds and presumably imminent failure. Thank goodness there is a great restaurant next door!

    « Good Value and Cycling Experience »

    We stayed on the top floor overlooking the canal for a 4 night cycling holiday. Our stay included our bike rental (from down the street 1 minute), very comfortable room and bed, breakfast buffet and 2 dinners. All was perfect for us 'older' cyclists, other than missing some good English cycling maps. They have a great numbering system that makes it all doable, but there were some explanations of towns etc. that we didn't have. But it was incredible with each day setting off in a different direction and enjoying a unique cycling experience. Lots of beautiful towns. Our price was half what was quoted by a Cycling Tour company that used this hotel. While we might have missed out on better maps and some extra support (which wasn't needed) it was certainly worth it. Also need to comment that the dinners in the restaurant were exceptional for serving small groups of people. Everything we ate was top quality.

    « Good value for money »

    Going to Gouda and staying in a nice hotel is quite affordable. It only takes 30-45min to go to the airport so 80 euros for the hotel is quite good deal if you consider that the taxi to the airport is almost 100€. The hotel is really nice and quite new. People I met at reception was really nice and professional. Breakfast was ok-ish, nothing special.

    « Great stay! »

    Best Western Plus in Gouda was the perfect hotel for our two night stay. Our rooms were modern, perfectly clean, comfortable, and had a wonderful view of the canal. We opted in for the breakfast buffet, which included many hot and cold selections, including wonderful little poffertjes (little puffed pancakes), small ready-made omelettes, bacon, cappuccinos, croissants, and lattes. The hotel is a brisk 10-15 minute walk from the train station. We wished we had called for a taxi for my mother. To the market place it's also about a 10 minute walk --- very pleasant through the cobblestone streets. The front desk and wait staffs were all very pleasant and we highly recommend this hotel.

    « A tipical chain hotel »

    The hotel has a good niveau of a standard hotel. An architect had had a fine idea to combinate the hotel room and bathroom, but our opinion was another. The ventilator in the room was very noisy. We have eaten dinner in the restaurant of the hotel two times. The first menu was acceptable. The main course of the second menu was awful. The personnel was kind.

    « Best Western Gouda - Plus's and Minus's »

    Mixed feelings. Extremely good location for Gouda, also modern and well presented and spotlessly clean. Bath/Showers though are difficult to exit from and Wash hand basins are ludicrously high - neither suited for elderly or frail people. The dining room is very slow for evening meals although the resultant food is quite acceptable. Too much noise from the kitchen area in the mornings [open to the Dining Room] and they should wait for breakfast to finish before clattering the crockery so much as conversation became impossible. On balance I would probably stay there again as it is a good location and very clean and well presented. Just a few things Best Western need to think through for future hotel designs

    « Brilliant hotel »

    Perfect hotel for our stay in Gouda. Easy walking distance from the centre. A lovely double room with patio doors looking out over one of the many canals. The hotel was immaculate. One of the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Even then underground parking was the smartest car park I have seen and well worth the 10 euros a day parking fee. The staff were very helpful and accommodating at all times. Ate in the restaurant one night and the food was brilliant and had breakfast one day and there was a large selection on the buffet. Would definitely stay there again.

    We spent 3 days in this hotel and were struck by the friendliness and the professionalism of the staff. This is obviously a well-managed hotel where everyone is willing to make your stay memorable. Clean spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. And a breakfast buffet that caters for all. HIGHLY recommended. We thought long and hard to find a point of criticism but couldn't come up with anything.

    « Ideal for business trip »

    I stayed at the Best Western for 2 nights on business. It is a 45 minute drive from Schipol airport and it very easy to find. The taxis can easily drop you off at the front door so tehre is no hassle. The staff were very friendly and we quickly checked in before heading to the rooms. The rooms are spacious and either come with just a shower or bath and shower. The bath and shower rooms are quite large with a sizeable bed. The bath/shower is however "public" in the room so bare that in mind if sharing with a colleague. There were tea and coffee facilities in the room, hairdryer, television, fridge and some showergel and soap. Breakfast in the morning is a buffet style with cereal, pastries, cheese and meats or a cooked breakfast if you prefer. There are also hot drinks and juices. The breakfast was satisfactory and perfect for our needs. All together a good stay for 2 nights.

    Since I saw the movie If this is Tuesday it must be Belgium, I always wanted to see the market, since it was featured in the movie.I had originally booked a B+B in the town sent the owner a full money order to The Groenenweg b+b took a taxi to the b+b someone inside but not answering, a neighbour told me to knock harder , finally an answer by a very angry man I told him who I was he started cursing at me told me to leave or he would call the police, he took my money in advance, ripped me off. I left with the taxi, he was shocked ,the neighbour was shocked , I was the most shocked,the taxi driver did not know were to take me so he took me to The Best Western it was full, but the clerk did call all the placesin town all full.He told me he had a room but it had not been house kept I said I didn't care it turned out it was cleaned after all.It was great. After the ordeal I had been through, he comped me breakfast it was all good and I enjoyed the market.

    « Great hotel - flying visit »

    We stayed with friends for one night on a flying visit. I agree with the previous reviews, this is a great hotel with friendly staff, they even moved our rooms so we could be next door to each other. The rooms are large and comfortable with lots of light and all the amenities you need including; super big shower, free wifi, hairdryer and kettle. This is a very quiet hotel with parking but as our friends paid for that, not sure how much of a bargain it was. Not sure about the location as we were just there for one night to go to a party nearby. The breakfast was great with lots to choose from. We were there New Year's Eve and it felt like there was a good management behind the running of the hotel as they had extended breakfast hours and included a very late checkout which was appreciated by all. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a hotel in the area. Only one complaint, we didn't have a big double bed, two mattresses together. And watch out for the random spiral staircase running from level two to one for no apparent reason.

    Gouda is a delightful town so being able to stay close to the centre and within walking distance of a wide range of shops and restaurants is ideal. the hotel is modern, quite basic but also adequate. The staff were helpful. The bed was comfortable. Breakfasts are fine with a good choice. The bar a little on the expensive side and the seating and décor not really relaxing

    Our trip to Gouda was spontaneous and we arrived with no accommodation prebooked. The Best Western was well sign posted all through town and that's the only reason we ended up staying there - because it was easy to find! The receptionist was friendly and gave us a room at a reasonable rate as well as plenty of information about the town of Gouda. The rooms were spacious, modern, clean and the beds were really comfy. All round a great experience, I would stay here again!

    Arrived late after a long day travelling & checked in. Informed that the only food available was pizza. Luckily our host for our visit found a little Italian restaurant that saved the night. Review to follow I hope. Rooms are very basic & served well for freshening up putting ones head down for the night.

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 18 months. Great value and very nice rooms. This is the first great hotel in Gouda. Parking is covered. Walking to the historic square is only a 10 minute walk. Gouda is a beautiful city and worth visiting. When you do, stay in this hotel you will not regret it. I highly recommend.

    « Loved the town of Gouda - and this little hotel was ideally located to enjoy it »

    A fairly new hotel (or so it seemed) and one of the nicer Best Westerns that I`ve stayed at. Easy parking underneath. Decent space and really comfy bed. Very clean, which is key. Breakfast was in a trendy brick dining area - with good food, and there`s a great brand new restaurant next door. But the best thing was the location. Easy to drive to via roads (right at the entrance of the town basically), but even better for exploring on foot. Just cross the canal to get into the core part of the town - a few minutes walk through the charming town to the centre square. So glad I chose to stay here.

    « Really nice hotel, BEST INCLUDED BREAKFAST OF TRIP »

    We stayed one night, got in an hour before sunset, walked to the town square maybe 6-7 minutes through one of the most picturesque towns i have ever seen. Ate at at Cafe Central on the square. Wonderful dinner! Walked around town then back to the best western. Great room, comfy beds and nice bathroom. Parking deck is public and cost 12 euro but from level -1 the elevator goes strait into the lobby. Nicest breakfast spread i have eve seen in a hotel. Profetional young staff.

    Nice functional hotel, everything is new and clean. Lovely bar and restaurant area and very close to the market centre. One possible improvement would be to have double beds, rather than single beds pushed together. I stay here quite a lot with with and I am always welcomed by the very friendly staff, which I think makes the hotel.

    « Excellent hotel, everything is great but a bit pricey »

    I usually don't like the style of the Best Western hotel, but I must admit, this is the big exception, the hotel is centric and modern, with decent restaurant and 10 minutes walked from city centre, but the highlights are the rooms, big modern, incredibly nice bathroom, separate toilet. I loved it. The only problem is that for a 4 star hotel, it was pricey (over 200 euro per night). If you don't mind splashing the cash, I fully recommeded

    « Excellent hotel. good parking »

    This hotel was the last 8 hotels in two week trip. It was perfectly organised and functional. However, the bar/restaurant didn't open until 6.00pm and we do like something at lunch-time. Gouda City Centre is lovely - but the outskirts are not. This hotel sits between the two, which is its problem. if Gouda Cty Council upgraded the old harbour it would be in much better location.

    I stayed in this hotel for one evening, basically just to sleep for a few hours. It is located in the village of Gouda (where they make the famous cheese) about 45 minutes from Amsterdam. The beds were comfortable, but the setup was rather awkward. The bath was just like an open room, it did not have a door and it was rather difficult to get in and out. I think its a good hotel for a couple of nights, but not for much longer than that.

    The Wifi is very poor almost non existent in our room, this is very disappointing from an international hotel group.The room and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast is €15 which is expensive but the food was good. Parking is good at €10 per day. One little thing that was annoying is that the hotel don't have courtesy umbrellas holland gets a bit of rain and a deposit system would prevent them going missing. Travellers can't take umbrellas on their flights nowadays so this would be a useful service.

    Check in was fast. Although the girl didn't tell us much about breakfast. Booking through booking.com gives you cheaper rates. Stayed with two friends - be aware: twin beds do not separate and the shower has no door which makes for uncomfortable situations. Free breakfast is really good and of course - many types of cheese. Staff in the breakfast are super friendly. I would return.
