We arrived early so our room wasn't ready. Zsoka, the very pleasant desk clerk took our luggage and "hid" it for safety until our room was ready. Their luggage storage room was undergoing repairs. She gave us a map and outlined what we could see in the mean time. We got to the room and found it to be very... More

Great location! Walking distance to all attractions!! Very helpful & knowledgeable staff!! Free continental breakfast was adequate & met our needs! Clean spacious room on second floor with big bathroom, comfy beds!! Can get little noisy at night if you're light sleeper...didn't bother us too much! Wi-Fi worked fine. We would definitely come back again!

This is an excellent hotel for experiencing Amsterdam, very good resturants on either side excellent café across street. Short tram ride from Central Station, easy walk to canals and other attractions. This was my second stay and will use again, noticed this time there were quite a few families with more than 1 child, so there must be and attraction... More

Staff were quite friendly. The hotel is within walking distance of all major sites- red light district, Ann Frank house, Van Gogh museum, train station... The free internet worked well, the breakfast was nothing special, rooms were decent sized for Europe.

Excellent location! In just a minute from Dam Square. Excellent service, clean rooms. Breakfast is poor, if it is not included in your reservation i recommended that you eat outside the hotel . The location of the hotel a bit noisy as expected in the city center. But it's worth!

The location is perfect - right in the center with walking distance to everything worth seeing. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and the AC made the temperature in the room perfect = great sleep every night. Our room was situated with a big window to the narrow street outside so I guess that you...

I chose the hotel because it was within easy walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station. I stayed two nights after flying from Canada, and one night before my return flight. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff are extremely confident and friendly. It is a good central location for Amsterdam. Everything is within walking distance. I would have no... More

Excellent location! Right off Dam Square and within walking distance to Central Station, Red Light District, Anne Frank house, etc. Also, it is right next to a busy shopping pedestrian 'street' and a cafe. Because of this, it might get a bit noisy in the nighttime (we were so tired that we didn't hear a thing). It can be a... More

We have just returned from a trip to the Netherlands, staying one night in Amsterdam at the Best Western. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the city, being so near to Damrak & Dam Square. The continental breakfast is very good consisting of cereals, cheese, meats, yogurts, fruit, bread & pastries. The rooms are clean & comfortable. We had... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
