I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with my boyfriend. When we arrived they sent us to a room which had someone else's belongings in, but we let them know and they sorted a room out for us an hour later. The room was standard, the bed was comfy and it was nice and clean. It was a great... More

We stayed at this hotel because my daughter had seen "The Fault in Our Stars" and this hotel features in it. The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the location is quiet and in a really nice part of Amsterdam. The room we stayed in was tidy and quiet but nothing special. It was clean but a little tired... More

Myself and 5 other students were on an educational visit to Amsterdam and decided to stay in this hotel. We arrived early at the hotel and were able to drop off our bags before exploring the city. The staff were very welcoming greeting us each time we arrived back at the hotel. Our rooms were cleaned and our rubbish was... More

There is nothing to recommend this hotel. Grimy, dank, dirty, dusty rooms. No amenities. No hairdryer, no wifi, no soap, minute bathroom, revolting, sticky and stained carpet. Exceptionally rude manager. NO WAY GO THERE!

What an absolute dump! We were shown to a cupboard with no light and grungy decor. shown the only two alternatives and because we had no time to change hotels took the best of a very bad lot - dark, dirty, dusty, minute bathroom, no wifi, decades old paint work, and filthy stained carpet. We'd booked for two nights, prepaid,... More

We spend 2 nights in this hotel (in the main building) and our stay was very good. The hotel very well located, 2 steps from the vondelpark and the garden is quiet and restful. Perfect to visit the city with bikes. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well! The room was not the newest one but we didn't... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. The annex was very grungy with broken glass at the entrance. The room was also grungy, with stained carpets, chipping paint and dilapidated curtains, and a ridiculously small bathroom. TV was minute and had few channels. The room we were given in the main building was very small and uncomfortable as well. Very... More

Quiet location but close to the Leidersplein etc for eating out. Breakfasts are very expensive at 15 euro but there are two good breakfast cafes within 150 metres. The stairs are perilously steep but thankfully there is a lift. Nice clean rooms, really comfortable beds and free wi-Fi which is all you need really. It was our second visit.
