This hotel has to be the best located hotel in Amsterdam! It is right on Dam Square and backs up to the Red Light District. It is one of the oldest hotels in Amsterdam, and you can tell in the rooms. The Hotel is undergoing renovations so there are better rooms but the room we stayed in had old carpets... More

Just got back from three nights at the hotel. chose it for it's good reputation and the location. Location was good ,the rest far from what you would expect from a hotel of that standard. Starting from the room which was very basic and was not cleaned until late hours of the afternoon with an excuse that they give priority... More

Great location, nice room and friendly staff. They checked us in after 10 am. What a breakfast! Everything was perfect except the air conditioning, which did not function very well... We are pleased to recommend this hotel :)

The NH hotel Chain is one that I like. It's Spanish owned, normally very reliable and places a premium on good service, efficiency and good Hotels - so what's not too like. This 5 star Hotel is on Dam Square and so with such a central location there is always going to be a bit of trade off between access... More

This hotel is no longer 'grand', which it likely once was, given its age. However, even though the decor is very plain the rooms are modern and everything was well functioning. Beds good, shower good, A/C good, service good. It did have a grand breakfast room and the buffet selection was excellent. It was pricey but if you like to... More

The hotel is very centrally located on Dam Square. All major sites in Amsterdam and the train station are within easy walking distance. The hotel's public spaces are beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was located at the back of the hotel, which meant it was very quiet. The king bed was comfortable, all amenities in... More

About 10-15 minutes' walk from Centraal station. Dam Square has lots of shops and there are restaurants in every direction as well as trams going down the main street from Centraal. The back entrance abuts the red light district. The lobby is huge (have a look at the winter tea room). Service is good, but the concierge and luggage desks... More
