Boutique Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5 in Nijmegen: Review of our gay-friendly Stay | The Netherlands
Review of the Boutique Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5 Nijmegen – The gay-friendly accommodation is a charming Boutique Hotel right in the city center of Nijmegen in the eastern part of the Netherlands close to the German border. The helpful and heartwarming gay couple Jos and Stephan are the owners of this almost 100 years old Dutch house which they transformed into a beautiful location for a city trip to Nijmegen. Additional to the Hotel, the building offers its guest a café and a terrace in the backyard. The Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5 is a combination of elegant design furniture with a chic luxurious interior in modern style equipped with huge comfortable beds.
We felt home in this old mansion in Nijmegen immediately. Having a good coffee in the morning combined with a rich, private breakfast with fresh bread, orange juice, and the cold cut made us fit for the day. Equipped with our camera and bikes, we started our exploration around the city of Nijmegen with a visit to the “blind museum” and more. And now, enjoy our hotel review with tips, and photos and see the Boutique Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5 Nijmegen through a couple of men‘s eyes.
Review: Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5 Nijmegen
Our Hotel room was extraordinarily spacious with a huge double bed, sofa and table, as well as a sitting area right in front of the rooftop window with a wonderful view over the old towns roofs. It feels like staying in a “mini-apartment”. Just around the gay club ThomTom, we spent a calm night after some Dutch beers with new local friends. After a night in our cozy beds, we started our day with a very fresh, rich breakfast served right in front of our room with fresh juice, milk, cold cut, bread, sweets and fresh peppermint tea. A perfect start to our day in Nijmegen after a hot shower over the roofs of Nijmegen. After breakfast, we had an interesting chat with our hosts Jos and Stephan about their very own boutique hotel and new plans for the terrace. If you are looking for a gay-friendly accommodation, the Sleep-Inn Box 5 Nijmegen is undoubtedly the right choice.
Exploring Nijmegen & the surrounding of Hotel Sleep-Inn Box 5
Just a short walk from the hotel, we found the city center, theater, museums and shopping areas. If you have more time to spend in Nijmegen, take a rental bike, and explore the river Waal with its industrial area of the HONING factory, the Het Valkhof Museum with Valkhofpark, and Grootmoeders Keukenmuseum. All around the center, you can find several cafés and restaurants for a break. Or, if you are planning to take a nap in your hotel room, have a snack at the Lunch Café Box5 offering its guests a delicious lunch and comfortable cozy terrace in the backyard.

The ThomTom Gay bar is just around the corner, and so are a lot of restaurants and places of interest. If you are planning to stay over the weekend, parties might bring some noise to this area. So don’t forget to bring your earplugs.
