The hotel has views of the harbor and a shady terrace patio for guests to enjoy. Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren also has a restaurant that offers a wide range of traditional and international cuisines.
The wine cask rooms start at 109.50 euros per night for two people.
From November to February, guests can snag a room for as little as 27.40 euros a night if they’re willing to stay at least three nights.
Room prices include breakfast. Some of the hotel’s packages include additional meals or fun extras such as a homemade cake or pie, a bottle of wine and bicycle rentals.
