This hotel is a total dump and I'm shocked that there are any good reviews for it . I booked a weekend in Amsterdam for my husbands birthday and I was embarrassed when we were shown to our room. It hadn't been cleaned , there was thick dust everywhere, mould all over the place, flaking paint, a saggy bed... The... More

Though having recieved a VERY small room on our arrival, the friendly receptionist changed it for a wonderful room on the third floor. The old style is cosy and you feel at home. We just loved all the détails in the décoration.

Stayed here for 3 nights in mid March. The hotel was in a fabulous location, and walking through the park every morning was great. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and pointed us in the direction of some nice spots. Room was really quirky, although unfortunately the safe didn't work (hotel staff did offer to store our things if... More

Husband and I spent Easter weekend in Amsterdam and chose this hotel for its convenient situation near the Museum quarter- about 15 min walk to Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. Hotel also on the no.1 tram line which takes you into the central area for shopping, attractions, canals and the Central station. Staff at hotel friendly and helpful, the de... More

Stayed here for few days. Rooms have their own character as they themed them with a philosopher. One of the rooms we had is too narrow. I thought the beds are a bit narrow than usual single beds as I feel like I'm going to fall everytime I turn! Television still the old fashioned box type but with more English... More

You get what you pay for with this place - I read that it was modern and stylish but it's actually outdated and smells like old fags. The rooms are interesting (if you like badly-painted on headboards and mistranslated quotes) but small and the wet room/bathroom ok, but not ideal as there's nowhere to put your things without them getting...

After reeding comments on this Hotel I was apprehensive but on arrival we had a friendly welcome and a beautiful room(15) looking over the park, lots of clean towels bath in the small bathroom but it's not like your spending the day in there. Rooms cleaned daily and a comfortable bed and pillows to die for after walking round the... More

I stayed here due to it's appearance in John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars". Definitely enjoyed my stay! Very good location with the close proximity to tram station 1. Also very close to the beautiful Vondelpark. The staff was exceptionally friendly, and always helpful. They printed things our for me when I forgot to print boarding passes before... More

The location is very central and on the tram 1 line, a few minutes from vondelpark and museumplein. I had a deluxe room which was ok but still relatively small, with no window in the bathroom. Breakfast buffet not worth the price of the breakfast. Overall experience was ok but I would expect more considering the price.
