The Pullman Cocagne in Eindhoven has become one of my favorite hotels in the area! You will soon read why…
The reception area is bright and spacious and gives a great first impression of the hotel.
Once again, for most people check-in is something that just “has to be done” and that’s it. To me, it is more than just that and they did a great job at the Pullman in Eindhoven! The young woman who checked us in was very professional and made us feel welcome! She gave us all the information we needed about the area and the hotel. We received a handy map of the city and its surrounding areas for us to explore.
The deluxe room we stayed in was very spacious and definitely of a 4 star level. It had a queen bed, a nice desk with a comfy chair and a large and very comfortable lounge chair. The bathroom had a large window which is somehow blinded. It had a very comfortable rainshower, single (but large) sink and a toilet. The toiletries are of a very good quality! Every superior room has a Nespresso coffee machine and 2 free bottles of water. Bathrobes and slippers are provided too.
Be sure to reserve your table at Vestdijk 47, Pullman’s onsite restaurant. First of all: this is a very ‘Instragramable’ place. The interior design is just wonderful, I couldn’t stop taking pictures here. But most importantly, the food and service are top notch! I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of standard they offer here. We thoroughly enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal with accompanied wine pairing. Mark Leenders is the head chef and definitely knows how to combine ingredients and flavors.
We started with king crab with marinated radish, marshmallow of apple, grapefruit, kalamansi gel and merengue yogurt. As a main course, we enjoyed a pickled rump cap which came with a sweet potato cream and green asparagus. The dessert – always a must! – was a mousse of orange, Lemon curd, dried cumquat and honey and thyme ice cream. Heaven!
The thing I really appreciated about this hotel is the Spa area. It has absolutely everything you would expect of a real wellness center: a large fitness center, a traditional finnish sauna, an infra-red sauna, experience showers and a large indoor pool. Come on, what is more relaxing than a nice swim after a busy working/shopping day? That’s right, Eindhoven is a very nice city with lots of shops!
The décor throughout the hotel is contemporary, modern and very stylish! We had a drink at the bar and loved the couches (and the drinks, of course!).
Breakfast was of a very good quality! There are several hot/cold items and service at the restaurant was of a high level. Every staff member we met in the hotel (on all levels) were very friendly and everything was done with pleasure.
I am in love with the Pullman Cocagne Eindhoven. Not only for the rooms, but also for the great facilities and excellent restaurant. Oh, and do check their website often for great deals! Highly recommended!
