van der Valk Hotel Breda: family-friendly hotel Breda
Last weekend we once again visited the family-friendly city of Breda! We have visited this city several times and already wrote the blog Breda with kids, in which we described all the children’s activities of the city. Usually we drive up and down from our hometown of Tilburg, but this time we stayed overnight in Breda at the van der Valk Hotel Breda. Following our overnight stay at the van der Valk Hotel Breda, we write this extensive review of this family-friendly hotel.

So on Saturday afternoon we drove toward the hotel, which we had already passed regularly when we were on our way to the IKEA in Breda. The hotel is located slightly outside the city center and therefore you can park your car in front of the hotel for free. We always find that to be a big advantage of most van der Valk hotels in the Netherlands.
Because the hotel is so close to Breda’s residential boulevard, several buses stop near the hotel and you can get to the city of Breda by bus in about 8 minutes from the hotel. To Breda Central Station, it is just over 15 minutes away by bus.
It is possible to exercise at the hotel, as the hotel has a gym. In addition, the hotel also has a very nice spa with pool, but we will come back to that later. The prices of the hotel rooms do not include tourist tax that you have to pay when you check out the room.
The van der Valk Hotel Breda has several rooms you can book for families with kids. Among other things, they have several themed rooms. We had booked a family suite at the van der Valk hotel Breda and this suite is about 36m2. There was a large king-size bed in the room and our daughter slept on the sofa bed that folded out.
In addition, this family suite is equipped with every convenience. For example, there is a flat-screen TV, a digital safe, a table with chairs and a refrigerator. There is also a luxurious bathroom with whirlpool tub. We always find a bathtub a huge plus in the room, but of course a whirlpool tub is totally awesome! We therefore made frequent use of this during our stay.
The hotel also has a spa, and of course we used it. So we were here in the late afternoon and again on Sunday morning when we were awake. We found this a super nice place to spend a few hours. Our daughter had a friend there that she played with all the time and meanwhile we relaxed wonderfully.
Thus, the pool is spacious and there is also a whirlpool area by the pool. There is also a sauna and a hammam. Really super nice to use like this at the end of the day and also to start the day with. As far as we are concerned, really a huge value when you are looking for a hotel in Breda.
Food and drink in hotel
The van der Valk Hotel Breda has two different restaurants, where you can eat and drink. For example, you have the Princeville restaurant where you can eat and you can also get something to eat at the Wohrmann’s bar. Because we had already eaten a hefty lunch at noon, we ordered several snacks from the bar.
This bar looks fantastically beautiful and is very atmospheric. What we also liked is that the staff thought with us. Our daughter was in the mood for fries and the bar did not have that on the menu, but a bar employee still arranged for her to get a portion of fries.
In the morning we also took advantage of the breakfast served by the hotel, which (as always at van der Valk) is very good and very extensive. There are several varieties of everything you can think of, and we really think the breakfast is a huge recommendation. Usually we eat so much that we don’t need to eat anything until well into the afternoon.
By the way, near the restaurant outside is also a nice playground, where kids can have fun. Another sign that the hotel really is family-friendly.
We enjoyed our overnight stay at the van der Valk hotel Breda. The hotel is slightly outside the city center and you can park your car in front. The hotel has several luxury rooms that you can book with families with kids, and the hotel’s wellness is really a big plus. Especially for families with kids. In addition, you can enjoy good food and drinks at the hotel. For more information on rooms, restaurants and wellness, check out the van der Valk Hotel Breda website.
