We stayed in the Best Western Dam Square Inn for 2 nights at the beginning of February 2016. The hotel was immaculately clean and our room was very comfortable. We didn't face the front of the hotel so can't comment on any noise or anything from that aspect. Our room was certainly big enough as was the bathroom. Shower was... More

Location is the key to city breaks - and personally I don't think there's a better location than this. Just off Dam Square, but very quiet, surprisingly. I write this at 11pm with the window open and not a sound from the narrow alleyway beneath our room , number 112. Such comfortable beds and helpful staff , breakfast has enough... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location. We were able to walk from Central Station with our suitcases no problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English fluently. The breakfast was continental and nicely set up in a lovely room with plenty of choices for everyone. The room that we had was a little on the small... More

We enjoyed a 2-night mid-week January '16 stay in Best Western Dam Square. Undoubtedly, its best feature is its location hardly a 1-minute walk to Dam Square. The hotel decor is tired throughout and the rooms in good need of a lick of paint. Our room was a little on the small side though sleep quality was suprisingly good. Hotel... More

I stayed in this hotel in January a Sunday-Tuesday break. We arrived about 12 but could not check in until 2 so the bags were left in the luggage room. The room was a reasonable size as was the bathroom although the toilet seemed to be wedged in the corner. The bed was comfortable. The room was quiet and we... More

My partner booked this hotel for 3 nights over the halloween weekend for my birthday. The hotel is in an excellent central location only a few steps away from Dam Square and just a short walk from Central Station. The hotel is lovely and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. We were in a room at the back of... More

Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Brilliant location, close enough to the square, but not too close to get all the noise and congestion. Room was cosy and staff were pleasant! Would definitely stay here again.

Pros: located in dam square very central to most main attractions. Great service by all staff members. Included breakfast was delicious and very filling. Cons: this is an old building with small rooms. The bathroom is so tiny it is almost unusuable. All of the beds seem to be made from smaller beds pushed together. Overall we enjoyed our stay...

We loved our room in the heart of Amsterdam. Staff was very nice and helpful, and helped in fixing a booking error. Breakfast was a bit loose, comparing with other places, but it was clean, and fresh. Crisp clean bedding, and linen. Room spacious, but tiny bathroom. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. A big plus: you can actually use elevator,... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends 30th birthday. It was the best hotel I had found that was in central Amsterdam and that I could afford at the time. For two nights from Friday to Sunday I paid £200+. Initially when I saw our bedroom I was very disappointed. It didn't look like the pictures. We were on the... More

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.
