Van der Valk hotel Eindhoven with kids: a review!

A city trip to Eindhoven is super fun and we have visited this family-friendly city several times. We also wrote the blog Eindhoven with kids about the city of Eindhoven, where we listed all the fun activities of the city. During one of our city trips to this city, we also spend the night at the van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven. As a result of this wonderful overnight stay, we write this comprehensive review about this family-friendly hotel in Eindhoven.

The hotel

The van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven had been on our list of places to stay for a long time. When we go to visit relatives we see the beautiful hotel from the highway, and we also heard very positive stories about the hotel from friends. So when we decided to go to Eindhoven for a few days with our daughter during the Christmas vacations, we didn’t have to think long about where we wanted to sleep.

And so on a Saturday afternoon during the Christmas vacations, we park the car in the spacious free parking lot that surrounds the hotel and within two minutes we are at the hotel reception. By the way, by car from the hotel you can be in downtown Eindhoven in five minutes. What immediately stands out when we arrive by car is the playground located outside by the hotel parking lot where kids can play nicely. Always nice when you can take your kids to a playground near the hotel at the end of the day.

In addition, the hotel has a heated indoor pool, which is especially great with kids! We went swimming in this pool both on the arrival day and on the departure day and the pool was really nice and warm. We visited the hotel in winter, so that was great for relaxing in the warm water. Several kids were playing in the pool, so Sophie had a few playmates right away, too.

In the pool there are several play attributes for kids and you also get towels at the pool. It is also possible to read a book by the pool on one of the chairs located by the pool. For the avid parents, there is also an option at the pool to exercise in the gym. We did not take advantage of this ourselves.

The room

The van der Valk hotel has lots of different types of rooms, including a number of different family rooms. We ourselves had booked the spacious Jungle Family Suite of a whopping 69 square meters. This is a family room suitable for families with two kids, where the parents have a spacious bedroom with a box spring, flat screen TV, spacious desk and ample closet with plenty of storage space for your clothes and valuables.

Sophie our daughter slept in a separate sleeping area with a bunk bed for 2 kids, which was shielded from the rest of the suite, giving us parents privacy in the evening and still being able to watch TV when our daughter was already asleep.

In addition, this suite has a fantastically large living room with large sitting area equipped with a smart TV (including streaming capabilities for Netflix), comfortable sofa and chair. Also included in the room is a Smeg minibar, a bluetooth record player and air conditioning!

The large bathroom of this suite is equipped with a one-person whirlpool tub, spacious shower, toilet and a hair dryer. Of course, we used this wonderful hot tub several times during our stay. There is also a separate toilet near the area where the kids sleep.

To top it off, the room also has a balcony with seating, which meant that parents could also enjoy a drink here at the end of the day. Of course we had carefully checked what we had booked in advance, but in reality the room was even more spacious and beautiful than we had imagined it beforehand.

In short, a super nice room to spend the night. Really a room where you can relax after you have spent a whole day exploring Eindhoven with the family! For an overview of the different rooms you can book at van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven, take a look here.

Food and drink in hotel

The van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven has three different restaurants located at the hotel, so there are plenty of choices for something to eat and drink with the family.

For example, at the hotel you have Brasserie Martinus, which is an à la carte restaurant where you can go for lunch and dinner. The brasserie has a separate kids’ menu for kids, challenging them to eat something different for a change. This menu is also full of games and coloring pages and, of course, the different dishes the kids can eat.

We wanted to eat here, but had forgotten to make reservations, so the restaurant was already full that night. Therefore, our advice is also if you would like to eat here that you make your reservation on time.

We ourselves therefore had dinner at OZZO Food & Drinks. This trendy hotel bar serves tasty dishes in addition to drinks, and this is where the three of us ended up having a delicious meal. Certainly the surroundings of this bar are very attractively decorated, so we also definitely recommend this bar for family dining.

The hotel also has a mini market where you can go for food and drinks. Here they sell a small assortment of products that guests sometimes forget about when staying in a hotel, and you can also go here for a snack. At this mini market you can order a variety of sandwiches and pizzas throughout the day. You can also buy drinks, sweet or savory snacks and fresh fruit.

The last restaurant where you can eat at van der Valk hotel Eindhoven is restaurant Het Buffet and this is a restaurant where breakfast is served and on Friday and Saturday nights there is also a dinner buffet. We had breakfast here in the morning and it was super good. There were lots of different options here in terms of sandwiches, spreads, sweets, cereals, juices, eggs and we’re not even mentioning half of them.

A very delicious and extensive breakfast, so we left the hotel with a well-filled belly and didn’t have to eat anything until the end of the afternoon. In that regard, you absolutely do not have to leave the hotel for food and drink.
