A Dutch Hotel

One more thing was missing from my post-series about my trip to the Netherlands: some words about the hotel I stayed at while I was there (well apart from Tulip Inn in Eindhoven). I was advised to stay at a place, not far from the location I had to visit, called Hotel Bakker. It is a quiet little hotel in Vorden, a small city in the south-east of the Netherlands.

For me it was the first time I was in a “non-commercial”, local hotel in the Netherlands, so it was an interesting experience for me. I was actually surprised, that everyone spoke well English, but then again, I was in the Netherlands… who doesn’t speak English there? 🙂 . Anyway, the place was OK for the price they charged for a room. It was not as fancy as the life-savior hotel in Eindhoven, but it was clean, it had free WiFi and it had a very friendly scenery: the rooms were all on the ground floor, with a back door to a common grassy area, there were small ponds with rocky edges all offering a relaxing and calm atmosphere to chill down a bit after a busy day working.

On top of that, I ate dinner almost every evening at the hotel. The food was… well, I think this is what fine dining in the Netherlands means: a quantity of nicely prepared meal which you can actually eat in one go 🙂 (usually it is quite hard to eat up everything when one eats normal food). The good part is: I was always a bit hungry by the time I got back to the hotel, so the quantity and the quality of the food was just perfect ;).
