Nice Pub in the Queen Hotel. Good Beer and Burger.
We stayed here two nights during our visit to the Netherlands, and we chose this hotel because it is smack in the middle of the Market Square in Downtown Eindhoven.
Our room had a bit of a strange shape, on the side of the building. It was a long and narrow room, but it had plenty of space for a desk and couch in the front, and the bed and storage cabinets in the back. The room was clean with plenty of storage space, and the furniture was modern/elegant.
The bathroom was small but clean and functional, with a large tub, that unfortunately took 45 minutes to fill up. Europeans take water preservation very seriously, and that is a good thing, but the water pressure in this hotel was definitely on the low side. I just wanted to take a nice warm soak after a freezing cold day, but I had to wait for a very long time until my bath was ready!
The bed was a bit too soft for us, and the pillows were very thick. I woke up with a painful neck. But this might be a very personal thing; I know that others enjoy soft beds.
Breakfast was included, and was served downstairs in the bar area. It had a good selection of scrambled eggs, bacon, boil-it-yourself-eggs, fresh breads, yogurt, cereal, and fruits.
Internet access (wireless) was included as well. We had to obtain a different access code for each device (laptop as well as phones) but everything worked flawlessly.
Rush hour service on a sunny Saturday afternoon on the outside terrace was A-ok.
Order taken whiten 3 minutes and drinks served 5 minutes later.
Queen occupies a large space near the station and part of a hotel of the same name. A big draw is the outdoor seating. The atmosphere inside is that of a classic cafe with lots of well-worn wooden tables and heavy chairs. The menu is also classic cafe with an international touch (lasagna, wraps, burgers, sate, steaks and fish). I tried the Dutch steak with stroganoff sauce which was quite good, and for about 16 euros, it included a small salad as well as fries, so it's a good value. Servers are busy but efficient and overall, a nice spot for a drink or a meal.
