In this blog Family-friendly hotel Eindhoven, we are going to show the different options you have as parents with kids to stay overnight in the city of Eindhoven. In Eindhoven you don’t have super many family-friendly hotels where you can sleep with a family with two kids but of course there are some nice options you can book. We personally pay attention when booking a family hotel in Eindhoven to the location, the hotel’s facilities and the reviews given by families with kids who have slept at the particular children’s hotel in Eindhoven.

1. Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven
The first family-friendly hotel in Eindhoven in our list is the van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven. We stayed overnight at this hotel and really found this hotel highly recommended! The hotel is located slightly outside the center of the city of Eindhoven, but you can park your car for free in front of the hotel because of this.
That you are dealing here with a family hotel in Eindhoven is already evident from the playground located in front of the hotel. Always nice to spend some time playing with the kids after a day in the city. In addition, this hotel has a heated indoor pool, which we thought was absolutely super.
If you are looking for a hotel in Eindhoven with a swimming pool, the van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven is definitely a good option! The pool is really warm and in the water there are enough toys for kids to have a great time here!
The van der Valk hotel in Eindhoven has different types of family rooms and we had booked the Jungle Family Suite here. A super spacious family room of 69m2 with a separate area with bunk beds for the kids, a separate area for the parents and also a very spacious living room.
The bathroom of this Jungle Family Suite (with whirlpool tub!) was also very spacious, and the room also had a spacious balcony. Ideal for parents to grab a drink at the end of the day when the kids are asleep. In that regard, we really found it a wonderful room to just relax with the family as well!
In terms of food and drink, too, you’re in the right place at this children’s hotel in Eindhoven! The hotel has no less than three different restaurants, and we dined at OZZO Food & Drinks in the evening. This was very tasty and also very enjoyable. If you want to eat at the Brasserie a la carte, we do recommend booking in advance, as this restaurant was already full when we wanted to book it on the day.
We also had breakfast in the morning at restaurant The Buffet and this breakfast was super extensive and very tasty! Highly recommended! In that regard, we found the van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven to be a very nice hotel to stay in.
Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven review
Dutch families who have stayed at the van der Valk hotel in Eindhoven give an overall score of 8.3 for this hotel. In total, more than 450 families with kids have reviewed the hotel and we list below the positives and negatives of this family hotel in Eindhoven.
Positives van der Valk Eindhoven: Actually, most of the positives match our experience. Families with kids especially appreciate the pool, the extensive breakfast and the spacious rooms at the van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven. In addition, several families report that the beds sleep fine!
Negative points of van der Valk Eindhoven: few negative points are mentioned more than once. It does state that in some rooms the bathroom was dated. This was not the case with us, but apparently there are other rooms where the bathroom is less modern.
2. Novotel Eindhoven
The second children’s hotel in Eindhoven in this list is the Novotel Eindhoven. Here too we stayed overnight and can give a good review. This hotel is also located on the outskirts of town. You can park your car paid in front of the door and by car you can be in the city center in about ten minutes. For sporty families, it is also possible to rent a bicycle and thus cycle to the center of Eindhoven.
Many families with kids stay here because of the hotel’s location near Eindhoven airport. In fact, the hotel is a few minutes’ drive from Eindhoven Airport, and especially with an early flight, many families with kids choose to stay at this hotel before flying the next day.
We really think Novotel Eindhoven is a hotel that belongs in our list of family-friendly hotels in Eindhoven and that’s definitely because of the hotel’s garden. In the hotel’s garden you have a playground located and also a heated outdoor pool. Especially in the summer months, we can imagine (we visited the hotel in the winter) that it is really huge fun here with kids. So this is another hotel in Eindhoven with a swimming pool, only you can only use it during the summer period.
Kids have also been thought of inside the hotel. In fact, this family hotel in Eindhoven has a play corner near the reception desk. You can book family rooms for families of four at this family-friendly hotel in Eindhoven. We ourselves had a Superior Double Room here and our daughter slept on a sofa bed.
We had a modern room that was fully equipped. Of course, the room was a lot smaller than our room at the van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven, but that difference is also clearly in the price. The Novotel Eindhoven was a lot cheaper. However, we did find the smell of the room not fresh.
There is a restaurant and bar at the hotel, but we only used breakfast in the morning. This was very delicious and extensive and definitely recommended!
Novotel Eindhoven Review
More than 1,300 families have rated the hotel after sleeping there and its overall score is a 7.7.
Novotel Eindhoven positives: especially the location is praised by many families because it is so close to the airport. In addition, the extensive breakfast is also often mentioned as a positive point of the hotel and many families name the hotel as family-friendly because of the outdoor pool located at the hotel. The hotel’s beds are also praised.
Negative points Novotel Eindhoven: As a negative point of the hotel are named the compact rooms, which in some cases also had somewhat outdated furnishings. In addition, paid parking was cited as a negative by several families with kids.
3. Hotel Parkzicht Eindhoven
We also stayed overnight at the third hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels in Eindhoven ourselves and can therefore properly rate this hotel. This hotel is not quite in the center, but from the hotel you can walk to the center of the city in about 15 minutes. You can park your car in front of the door for free which we definitely thought was a big plus!
Opposite the hotel is a large park and near the hotel is also a supermarket. We ourselves always like that. We had booked a triple room here ourselves, but this family hotel in Eindhoven also has rooms for families with four people. The room we had was very nice and fully equipped.
For example, this room had a TV, a functioning WIFI connection, coffee and tea making facilities and air conditioning. We don’t need much more in that regard. The hotel has a restaurant where you can eat three times a day, but we ate at an Italian restaurant (Hout Eindhoven) that is a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. That was very good food.
We did take advantage of the full breakfast in the morning and it was very good and is definitely recommended. In general, we find that breakfast at most hotels in the Netherlands is actually always super good.
Hotel Parkzicht Eindhoven review
More than 170 families who have stayed overnight at this family hotel in Eindhoven rate its overall rating a 9.1.
Positives Hotel Parkzicht Eindhoven: the location is named by most families as a positive point. It is quiet yet within walking distance of the city. In addition, the positive points of this children’s hotel in Eindhoven include the delicious breakfast, friendly staff and nice rooms.
Negative points Hotel Parkzicht Eindhoven: a number of families mentioned that the price of breakfast is quite high for what you get for it. Of course, you can avoid this by booking a room without breakfast and then having breakfast in downtown Eindhoven. Furthermore, there are few negative points mentioned by several families.
4. The Social Hub Eindhoven
This family-run hotel in Eindhoven is located right in the center and right across the street from Eindhoven’s central train station. Therefore, The Social Hub Eindhoven is also easily accessible if you visit the city of Eindhoven by train, for example. Part of what makes this hotel so suitable for kids is that there is a pool table and a table tennis table in the hotel’s common room. Always fun to go play with your kids at the end of the day.
The interior design of The Social Hub Eindhoven is colorful and is sure to appeal to kids. This family-friendly hotel in Eindhoven has several family rooms that are spacious and some rooms have a nice view of the city of Eindhoven (for example, if you have a room on the upper floors of the hotel).
The Social Hub Eindhoven review
More than 390 families with kids have rated this hotel and this hotel receives a whopping 9.6 as an overall score. That, of course, is extremely high.
Positives The Social Hub Eindhoven: the positives of this hotel are actually the things we also mentioned above. For example, families with kids especially love the view of the hotel, the staff is very friendly, and the hotel’s common area is also very popular. The hotel’s atmosphere is also praised by many families.
Negative points The Social Hub Eindhoven: especially the heat in the rooms is named as a negative point. The air conditioning does not work adequately, so it can be hot in the rooms. In the winter months this is obviously not a problem, but in the hot summer months it can be annoying.
5. Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre
This family hotel in Eindhoven is also located right in the center and also near Eindhoven’s central train station. So if you are going to Eindhoven by train, the Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre is definitely a good option to stay overnight with the family. The hotel has a modern look and beautiful pictures on the wall of Eindhoven.
This children’s hotel in Eindhoven has several rooms for families. Of course, there are plenty of parking garages nearby in front of the hotel, and the hotel itself also has paid parking.
Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre review
More than 450 families with kids rated the Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre after their overnight stay and they gave the hotel a 9.4 overall score.
Positives Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre: almost all families named the hotel’s location as a positive point. You can walk straight into the city center from the hotel. The spacious rooms, friendly staff and excellent breakfast are also mentioned as positive points of this family-friendly hotel in Eindhoven. Certainly the hotel’s family rooms are spacious.
Negative points Crown Hotel Eindhoven Centre: especially for families who were on the lower floors of the hotel, a negative point was that they heard noise from the street from nightlife and in the early morning from the municipality’s cleaning service. You can capitalize on this by asking if you can get a room a little higher up in the hotel so that you have less inconvenience. Families also indicated that the bathroom was somewhat dated.
Hotel Eindhoven with swimming pool
You don’t have that many hotels in Eindhoven with pools. We already named two hotels in Eindhoven with swimming pools before this and they were the van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven and the Novotel Eindhoven. At the Van der Valk Hotel you have a heated indoor pool and you can use this all year round and at the Novotel Eindhoven you have a heated outdoor pool and this is only open in the summer months.
In addition to these two hotels, you have another hotel in Eindhoven with a swimming pool.
Park Plaza Eindhoven: This four-star hotel has rooms with soundproofing, two restaurants and an indoor pool, where you can swim all year round. This hotel in Eindhoven with pool also has a sauna where you can relax and you can park (paid) at the hotel. Families with kids rate this hotel an 8.8. For more information about Park Plaza Eindhoven, take a look here.
You have several children’s hotels in Eindhoven that you can book, even though the choice is not super large. We ourselves have slept in three children’s hotels in Eindhoven and all three were good. When booking a hotel, we always look at the location, the rooms and, of course, the reviews written about a hotel. If you have a hotel with hundreds of reviews and this hotel gets a rating higher than a 7.5, then you almost always know you are in the right place.
Of course, we did not cover all the options of children’s hotels in Eindhoven and there are still more accommodations in Eindhoven available. For a list of all children’s hotels in Eindhoven, take a look here.
