August 2015 we booked the suite 133, the best room of the hôtel according receptionist. Staircase rather dangerous to reach first floor without any lift, a very dim light in the room, toilets so tiny that we can't move in it, bathroom with separate window no waterproof so that the floor becomes a swimming pool, towels changed only twice in...

We stayed two nights in the annexe across the street. The double room was small with a tiny single room attached and an enclosed balcony with a view of the garden and a miniscule bathroom the size of two British telephone boxes. The towels were old and stiff and one had a hole in it. The bottle of face soap... More

Booked a room on very short notice at this hotel and arrived too early for checkin around 9am. The staff was very friendly and let me check in right away. The room itself including the bathroom was dated and on semi basement level. Outside the windows people (staff) were smoking. Suppose as it was raining and the area in front... More

This hotel has gained in popularity since TFIOS made it famous, but it hasn't changed. The staff are still charming, friendly and will happily go out of their way to help you with anything from an iron, to a dinner reservation, to tour and museum tickets, even bicycle hire! Close to Vondelpark and with great transport links round the city,... More

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was the Star Room in which John Green (author of The Fault in Our Stars) stayed when he was in Amsterdam. Very comfortable beds, absolutely stunning view out of our window. Really longed for a kettle in our room, that would have made it a 5 out of 5 rating for... More

We were looking for a place that was quite and not too expensive. This hotel is located outside of central (about a 30 minute walk to Dam Square). The rooms each have a philosopher theme. We were in the Zen room which was small but met our needs. The only disadvantage is it did not have air conditioning and Europe... More

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
