Basic rooms with some tired decor but loved the quirkiness of it... And was clean. Each room individually themed and reception staff very helpful and polite! Good location just a little outside the main centre (15/20 walk tops!) next to the beautiful Vondlepark... But we preferred this area to the main dam anyway! Nice bars and restaurants nearby. One thing... More

Ok so its no 5 star glitz and glamour hotel, but it was a perfect base for a great few days in Amsterdam. If you can see beyond the décor, lampshades falling off in the middle of the night and a TV with 3 working channels, you will see the important bits. It was very clean, it had hot running... More

We stayed in a room located in a building across the street from the main building. It was advertized as a "suit" and supposed to be one of their best rooms. The wi-fi didn't work properly in that building. You only got a very weak signal which faded instantly. When mentioned to the reception they just ignored the issue. Breakfast... More

Good location, 15min walking from center area and 2min to Vondelpark. Quite small rooms, good wi-fi connection in the rooms and in the restaurant. The breakfast isn't worth the price, better get just coffe from the restaurant. Good connections for tram for airport and citycenter.

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
