Stayed here from April 11th - 13th in room 103, perfect view and really lovely room which was spotless, it was close to all the cafés which was the only reason for us going to Amsterdam in the first place. Staff were great and checked us in 5 hours earlier which was a bonus as we arrived at 9.30am and... More

The hotel was very nice inside and out. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was much smaller than I had expected but being in the center of the city its to be expected. The only thing that we did not like were the beds. Coming from America we are used to box springs and firm mattresses. The mattress... More

We spent four nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. The staff were extremely professional and friendly. We had two meals enjoyable meals during our stay and the wine was very reasonable for a central city hotel. The location is excellent and is only a short walk from central station - there was no need for a taxi.

The Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw couldn't be easier to find if you go to Amsterdam by train. 10 minute walk from Central station. Just head from the station straight along Damrak. The hotel is 2 minutes from Dam Square and about 15 minutes from Rembrandt Plein where you will find some restaurants. Plenty of places to eat in the... More

We arrived at the De Roode Leeuw on a Monday afternoon 10th March 2014 just for a One Night stay. Check in was fairly easy, but they do ask for a credit or debit card guarantee in our case of £43.06 which I never got back in my account until 19th March. They seem very concerned about there mini bars.... More

It was with regret that I learned that we could not meet your expectations. As you have seen , the surface of our superior rooms is bigger but the equipment of all rooms is the same including coffee- and teamaker, safe, free WiFi and hairdryer. You mentioned that the room was not soundproof which makes me wonder if the window... More

We appreciate your review and like the comment that you could return tomorrow.

About our 10th stay in this wonderful traditional Hotel- very helpful staff and a special mention to Peter and the staff in the restaurant- especially one waiter who remembered us from last August and was very attentive giving excellent service.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and that we met your expectations again.

My partner and I spent two nights at this hotel (March 2014) and were very pleasantly surprised. Due to arriving after dark and having no map or internet access on our phones, we had a struggle to find the hotel but found ourselves feeling foolish - we walked a long way around the city only to discover that the place...
