First, the location of this hotel is hotel is simply fantastic, just off Dam Square and convenient for virtually everywhere in Amsterdam. Otherwise, however, I would not recommend this hotel. The decor is very tired and the room that I stayed in was small, the bed was uncomfortable and the shower leaked! My guess is that given the excellent location,... More

I have just came back from a 3 night stay in this hotel. We paid around £411 for this, included a continental breakfast. I think the location of this hotel is absolutely brilliant, 10 min walk from the rail station, a few steps to the shopping streets and the same to Dam Square. We also walked to the Heineken tour...

Nice hotel in a great location; only a ten minute walk from the train station. The three person room was a little small, but decent otherwise. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was very nice. I would stay there again.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful assisting with recommending good local restaurants. They all speak excellent English and nothing was too much trouble. This hotel is set... More

The hotel is very well located in the center of Amsterdam; the ladies at the reception desk were very nice and helpful (I asked for water, and help to make the wifi on). The room was nice and the bed very comfortable. The only negative aspect was that I had a room on the last floor, with a roof-window, which... More

When I was trying to book a hotel everything was so expensive. I later found out that there was a big conference the weekend I travelled which I guess was why. I booked the Best Western because of the good reviews and price. The room I stayed in was large and lovely and quiet - I did request a quiet... More

We enjoyed out stay here. The staff on the front desk were very helpful and friendly. It is in a good central location where you can walk to many attractions. There are many cafe's just outside the front door. The rooms are quite ok and comfortable and we quite enjoyed the free breakfast. There was quite a lot of variety.

Stayed one night before a river cruise. Hotel was clean and the free breakfast was good. Front desk let us check in two hours early. We took the train from the airport to central station and then walked from there. Hotel is within walking distance to almost everything except the museum district.
