We book this hotel for our first wedding anniversary. What a disaster! Box dark room, with dirty walls, dodgy old bed, dirty window and curtains, damaged furnitures, that was what we got… Not exactly what they show on website advertising. We asked for different room and we were offered the similar room in different building, but without wifi (which supposed... More

The hotel is really really great, excellent location for such a great price! The staff are super friendly, and although they did overbook our trip and we had to a stay a night in a twin room, we were offered the most sincere apologies and a free drink! The rooms are a bit outdated, but they're nicely decorated and clean... More

We loved the location, right next to the Vondelpark and on the main Overtoom road. It was an easy walk in to the centre of Amsterdam, or tram ride during the rain. The hotel building is lovely and full of character. We stayed in the 'Zen' room which was fantastically decorated and had a lovely view of the garden from... More

I stayed for 6 nights in room 10, the Zen room. The carpet had crumbs on and threadbare patches, and there is a lot of chipped paint and damaged furniture. The bed was rather lumpy, not very comfortable and they didn't change the sheet at all which had a small rip in, they did make the bed every day. It... More

Now I am a big fan of Amsterdam and Holland in general. Fun, original, idiosyncratic, I've been to Amsterdam three times and always loved it. So this hotel pretty much reflected my Amsterdam experiences; it's unique, it's super-friendly and it's... odd. We were in the building across the road from reception so it really felt like staying in an apartment.... More

We arrived and were put in a room on the top floor where with no air con and a temperature of late 30's, early 40's......room was claustrophobic and bore no resemblance to room photos on website. This is not what I would call a boutique hotel.......reception duty manager very very charming and helpful and immediately moved us to a larger... More

The two women who worked on reception were lovely and very helpful. The garden and communal areas were nice, and room 16 was fine. The rooms at the front seem more spacious. However, our stay didn't start well as the man who worked the late shift was very unwelcoming and grumpy. We were given room 10 (Zen Room) which was... More

Nicely located basic hotel, which is of good value. Peaceful and quiet location by Vondelpark. The only downside it that the wi-fi connection was non-existent in the main building, so I had to change my room to the annex on the other side of the street. There's a small bar in the main building, the rooms are small and basic,... More

Stayed in this hotel as a special treat to my daughter who is a big fan of The Fault in Our Stars. Despite numerous changes in dates, the staff was always willing to accommodate. We travelled to another city before checking in and they were kind enough to allow us to leave our luggage. The "stars" room is a small,... More
