On a pedestrian street, close to the old church, dam square and walking distance to the docks etc. Lots of restaurants nearby. It is clean, simple, reasonably priced and QUIET! Our window opened to an interior courtyard and it was wonderful. I would definitely stay there again.

The rooms are a good size by Amsterdam standards; clean; comfortable; well-appointed. Breakfast was decent, continental style (no fry-ups though so be warned). Hotel bar very small but cheap and ok for a quick one on the way in/out. The location is excellent: just yards from Dam Sq but in a relatively quiet, hidden corner; Gravenstraat is a very picturesque... More

I have stayed in Amsterdam many times and this hotel is in a great location. The central area is notoriously expensive with small rooms and expect to pay much more for a view. This hotel if you can get a deal is worth visiting. Rooms were around average size for the area,Comfortable beds good bathrooms / shower and conti breakfast.... More

We stayed in the Bootz Suite for 4 nights. The room is quite large and comfortable except that there is a bit on the dark side – not many room lights. It has windows on two sides, one set facing the street and the other facing an inner light well. Although there are restaurants and bars right next to the... More

This location was ideal because it was within a 10 minute walk from the Amsterdam Centraal Station because that where we arrived from and would leave from. It is relatively central to the city but my family and I took advantage of the tram to get everywhere from the hotel, and the nearest stop was only a minute away. The... More

I think its one property where the stay, feel, comfort, everything was missing. its just that the hotel is centrally located, but the moment one realises that the entry is from a dingy lane and the lift that hotel has are absolutely outdated, it disappoints......... it disappoints even more as the cost is very high and i chose as its...

The room could use some updating. The staff were mostly very good. Person there when we checked in was not as helpful. They provided a lovely breakfast and all the other staff were very good. Stored our luggage until we were ready to leave. Was close to Dam Square which was very good. Lots of shops and restaurants. Historical Dam... More

In short. Location is brilliant. 5 minutes walk from the train centre and an ideally situated base for disovering the city. Room we had was clean and had everything i required. Breakfast was a good quality continental type with a decent choice. Amsterdam is generally an expensive city so for the cost i really have no complaints

My husband and I stayed at this best western because of the location and the price. It was quaint and cozy, the location was great, the staff was wonderful and helpful, but the rooms are in the middle of an upgrade. We stayed in one of the pre-upgrade rooms the first night and asked to be moved. The second and... More
