Van der Valk, hotel chain: "Hotels along motorway (all provinces)" Top 5 Page for this destination Netherlands Hotel Tip by ATLC

Netherlands Hotels: 145 reviews and 115 photos


about € 65 - € 80, standard double room.

Unique Qualities: You'll find Van der Valk hotels/restaurants along motorways all around The Netherlands. It stands for a typical Dutch characteristic: cheap and lots of it. So the rooms are good, the food is average, sometimes good but far from gourmet. As said: you get lots of it. Always busily frequented by business people and large families.
Oddly, you'll find not a falcon (=Valk) high above each Van der Valk hotel, but a pelican.
This Dutch chain, run by the family Van der Valk can also be found on the Netherlans Antilles, France, Germany, Belgium and Spain.

Price Comparison: about average
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
