Away from the city's center in the De Pijp neighborhood, Aalborg Hotel offers 36 small yet comfortable rooms with a modern style. Each room looks different; for example, the Graffiti Room has cool black and blue graffiti art stenciled on the walls and ceiling, while others feature black-and-white framed photographs. However, amenities such as ceiling fans and tube TVs are older and could do with replacing, space is tight, and storage space is insufficient. The on-site 25th Hour Lounge sounds stylish and trendy, but it looks more like a glorified sports bar. Guests can grab a continental breakfast (for a fee) at the breakfast buffet, but it's quite small and the seating is minuscule. Off of the bar is the Mac Cafe, a computer cluster with three Mac desktops that guests can use free of charge during their stay. The hotel definitely has a sense of humor about it that resonates with the staff and the guests: no one takes themselves too seriously at this laidback, youthful hotel. A cool vibe is strived for, if it is not always delivered. The quiet and pretty location may be an upside for some; it's far from main attractions, but close to tram stations that will get visitors through the city quickly and efficiently.
