LOCATION: Super for visiting Amsterdam. Centrally located for walkers and easy to get to and from by Trams that go to most any part of the city. Take a Tram from Centraal Station to within 2 blocks of the hotel. (Trams also give you a respite from walking and save time that can be used for sightseeing.) The major shopping... More

The mantra in real estate is location, location, location. That certainly describes this hotel. Located on the back side of the New Church on Dam Square, it's positioned on an atmospheric pedestrian only back street. Although we took a cab due to personal circumstances it is within an easy walk of the train station--and in fact every important site in... More

I stayed here for a 24 hour layover; location was PERFECT! I would stay here again just for the location. It is walking distance from Amsterdam Centraal Station, so do yourself a favor when u get off the train just walk, do not try to take a taxi because it is close and it is on a side street where...

My taxi driver at Amsterdam Central Railway station didn’t know where the Best Western was and had to seek the assistance of another taxi driver. The hotel turned out to be located in a pedestrian side street just off Dam Square. Check-in formalities were completed with a minimum of fuss by the very pleasant and efficient receptionist. My second floor... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over easter. The hotel is clean and pretty modern and is also well located, being just off Dam Square. The hotel also offers a free breakfast, which is very good. If you are going sightseeing this hotel is perfect to use as base, there are loads of bars and restaraunts around... More

Though I had done my research, the hotels I wished to stay at were booked due to a holiday I hadn't known about. Who knew that a Best Western would have the charm, delicious food and wonderful staff with helpful suggestions that I was looking for?!? I can't say enough about Danielle at the front desk who helped me narrow... More

Just 2 blocks from Dam Square and the Ramdak. It is close to the Red Light District but not in it. Trams right on the corner. The hotel is located on a walk street so you have to bring your luggage from the corner (a short block) from Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal. (It is a good 3 blocks from Ramdak.) If you... More

I chose to stay at the Best Western Dam Square Inn thinking it was a good location to be right near Dam Square, but this was a bad choice. Amsterdam is so easy to get around, walking, tram, canal boat that being in the heart of so much activity was a negative thing. One it was right before Kings Day... More
