Alphen aan den Rijn is a small laid-back town in between Amsterdam and Gouda, so I suppose this hotel gets most used by business types. Rooms are comfy, clean, and quiet considering their proximity to the railway line, and the English-speaking staff is always friendly. TV channels include a couple of English, German, and French options, but, unusually, there are no tea/coffee making facilities inside. There's no trouser press either. For breakfast details, see the dining entry in this journal.
Downstairs is an open-plan lobby/bar/restaurant area with information on surrounding attractions and a bowl of free apples. The photos will give you a fair picture of what its all about, but its clearly a business-orientated stopover, so don't expect too much.
Here's the website.
