Home away from home
Posted Jul 1, 2016
When you are looking for this hotel, watch for house number 36, Sycamore House, not for a flashy sign. When you ring the bell you realize that you are not checking in at a hotel, but coming for a visit to a friend. If you want to travel to Eindhoven, but don't really want to leave you home, stay here.
Jos, the host, did everything to make me feel welcome in his house. He let me in early, before normal check-in hours and let me use the kitchen.
The room I stayed in was in the attic. It was absolutely charming with an old wardrobe adding to the authenticity of a historic house. The bathroom, on the other hand, is very modern and clean. The handsink is in the room, but in my opinion this is not a discomfort, but quite the opposite. Among other things there is a small fridge, a TV set (I'd rather watch the view outside the window) and many lights. Everything you need for a comfortable stay.
The house is located on a quite, very green street. It is about 10-15 minute walk to the main train station and 'centrum'. So whatever the purpose of your visit is, tourism or business, this hotel and it's wonderful hosts will accommodate all your needs. When I am traveling to Eindhoven again, I will not search for places to stay, but book myself a room here.
