Its true that the bedrooms décor could do with a fresh coat of paint and new carpets but apart from that we cannot fault this hotel. It is perfectly located, right near Dam square, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast is a typical continental one but plenty of it but the thing that makes this hotel special was...

The Dam Square Inn is very close to the Central Railway Station being a 10 minute walk. Very helpful when arriving in a strange city and not knowing all the bus and tram routes yet. It is very walkable to many Amsterdam attractions, including Anne Frank's house. We only needed the trams to get to the Museum area and that... More

stayed only 1 night at the end of a European trip. It was purely chosen for the location close to the train station (5 minutes walk) and the attractions to be visited. The hotel is basic but for its location reasonably priced. The room was overlooking a side street so was nice and quiet. The staff at reception were friendly,... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel, the first time was twenty years ago. The hotel is clean and basic, rooms are large and beds comfortable. Breakfast is continental. The location is great, right next to dam Square off the Damrak within easy walking distance of the attractions with the exception of the Rijksmuseum where the... More

We stayed there for four nights and the room was on the first floor just above a coffee shop which apparantly was open 24/7 since people were very loud all night, sitting smoking outside. You dont need a taxi to get there from central station, just walk straight till you see KFC and turn right before it, the hotel is... More

This hotel is on a small street just off the Dam. If you have a good map and better sense than me, you can walk from the train station pulling your luggage along the main road and getting a little intro to Amsterdam. When you arrive, you will experience some of the best service at any hotel. You will have... More

My friend and I stayed at the Best Western Dam Square Inn on July 12, 2014 for two nights. We flew from Berlin Tegel to Schipol, took the 4 euro train to Central Station and walked south towards the square on crowded Damrak for about 10 minutes. The hotel is kind of hidden away in a narrow pedestrian street (Gravenstraat),... More

Good location in Amsterdam. The street is pedestrian so cabs can't park in front of the hotel but that makes this a quiet location. Breakfast was plentiful. Free wifi is available. The staff were helpful, friendly and efficient. They will do what they can to help you. The tram is at the end of the street. I felt very safe... More

This hotel was in a great location -- 10 minute walk to the train station and off Dam Square so that it wasn't right in the noisy area of town. The New Church was right across the alley from the hotel, and there were a few cute little restaurants right out the front door. The room was a decent size... More
