It used to be a women’s prison and some of us were slightly confused to stay in the rooms which saw sorrow and cry. In fairness I must say that the staff did their best to please us whether it was a glass of champagne on arrival or a wonderful tasting of major hits of the hotel’s three star Michelin restaurant in the lounge bar. The location is also very convenient - within ten minutes walk to the town’s main square. But breakfast was the most frustrating moment, it was neither buffet nor a la carte - the waiters put on our tables kind of dish of the day, all meat, not bothering themselves to ask if we eat meat. All in all we preferred to have breakfast outside the premises because what we’ve got as an alternative to meat, hardly resembled morning bites. Michelin style breakfast is not the their strongest side.

The stay in Librije’s Hotel was truly a ‘Cherry on the Cake’ for our lunch at the Librije. The set-up for the room is excellent for a one-night stay and breakfast is extraordinary. We are now spoilt and have to get used to breakfast buffets again.

A festive weekend with my wife in Zwolle: of course in De Librije Hotel. Excellent service by staff member Marlou and the rest of the hotel crew: Never ending service by the entire team. Superb! A big thank you to make our weekend very special.

For me this is the best hotel in the Netherlands. The level of hospitallity is the best of te best. The standards are high but everything is done to make it comfortable for their guests. Beautiful rooms. Ans especially comfortable when you visit 3 Michelin starred restaurant De Librije. All under one roof.

Food is without a doubt outstanding if you love fish. If you are into meat it’s not your best choice to go. Prepare for 5 dishes of fish and disappointing only one dish with meat. There’s no balance or recognition of guests’ preference. Disappointing.

We had to make a quick trip to Zwolle to drop our daughter at University there. Knowing nothing about the hotel or it's reputation we booked at the last minute. Unfortunately, we were in a rush and didn't get to really enjoy the hotel.......however, the rooms were very comfortable, the staff very pleasant and helpful, location ideal. Also what we did not know, is the restaurant is the center piece of their hotel and concept. We were told upon check in that there was no availability for dinner, which wasn't an issue because dining wasn't our priority, nor did we know the reputation of the restaurant. However, later in the day they had a cancellation and we were able to get a table unexpectedly. After dinner we understood that the hotel is there for the restaurant!! If you like fantastic food experiences and to stay in a lovely hotel, this place is for you. I will return!

It has been a while since I last stayed here, but to me Librije’s Hotel is still the best hotel of the Netherlands. The rooms are very comfortable and cosy! And breakfast is perfect! Love to come here again. That is for sure!

Would not have it any other way: if having dinner at Librije, it is such a luxury to also stay there. After a great dinner experience, go up and have a great rest to be indulged once more at breakfast. Nice rooms, good service and great bed!

Last month we stayed at Librije's Hotel in Zwolle where we enjoyed a marvelous dinner and breakfast the next morning. At arrival we were welcomed by the friendly staff and who showed us our room. The rooms are located at a former "female penitentiary" in Zwolle. The rooms are comfortable and a surprise has been hidden in one of the bedside tables. The 7-course dinner with the accompanying wine was great. A real taste explosion with each course served. We already booked again for next year.

We were very lucky to find a room at the last minute. We had driven 450 miles that day and hadn't been able to book in advance as we weren't sure if we'd make it to Zwolle. The lady who greeted us at the desk was extremely helpful and courteous and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Before being shown our room we were given a welcome drink and amuse bouche both of which were very individual and delicious. We stayed in a 'Royal Room' with an adjustable, comfortable bed, a good choice of soft drinks in the mini-fridge, an espresso coffee machine and a spacious bath with raindance shower. Even the lights had many adjustable settings. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, if the opportunity arises and would love to eat in the restaurant - maybe for our 30th wedding anniversary (must remember to plan well in advance).
