Check in time was actually after 3pm according to the desk staff, on expedia it says 24 hours. So when I reached the hotel it was 10am. So I had to kill time. Now location-wise it was far from central, and most of the surrounding area were residential houses and parks.
Staff were friendly and when I finally was able to check in, I found myself a little lost. I wasn't told that the deck was split into 'Odd' and Even' cabins. So my room number was an odd number but didn't know and had a hard time finding my room. Luckily a cleaner was there who directed me.
One of the reasons why I wanted to stay at this particular hotel is simply because it's a ship!! Kept very clean and tidy, I had a cosy bed in a single bed room. Had 1 shower, sink and 2 small bins. A desk with writing paper and stationary, books on the shelves really it that vintage feel.

We stayed at Van der Valk with a Dutch friend and his wife and found the area very interesting and the hotel very pleasant. The staff were excellent, very skilled at their jobs, knowledgeable, polite and informative. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and the dining room was well laid out, giving excellent views of the river. The food was great; almost anything you can think of for breakfast and a varied menu in the evening.
