We stayed here for 4 nights it was central as required but apart from that the rooms were just ok. Rooms with atcic were awful but we were changed the next day thankfully Our new rooms were better. But having said that the comparison of prices to the next level of hotels was not worth the difference .... So would... More

Small hotel just off Dam Square, Amsterdam. Location is fairly good as it is possible to walk from here to most of the desired spots in the city. If the Red Light district is for you it is about a 10 minute walk. The hotel is perfectly clean, the staff are friendly and there is a decent continental breakfast.

Hotel is situated a short walk from the Central Station, very close to many attractions with tram stops a couple of minutes walk. Friendly staff, clean, pleasant hotel. Would stay again if visiting Amsterdam.

Six girls on a birthday weekend away we were booked into the Dam Square Inn for two nights from the Friday to the Sunday . When we arrived we found a spotlessly clean hotel with a very welcoming and helpful young man on reception. We found our rooms which were spacious and equipped with everything you could need with the... More

The hotel is a hop and skip away from Dam Square, which is a place full of activity. THrough out the day there are musical performers and people dressed up as character - Minnie and Mickey mouse etc. Close to the central station, where one can pick up the canal boat cruises. And opposite the station is the bus tour... More

It is a 8 minute walk to the famous tourist attraction once the sun goes down the red light district. The... More

The location was great with the Dam Square Inn located about 1/2 block from Dam Square. Staff at the hotel was nice, friendly, and helpful. All of central Amsterdam was within easy walking distance. The rooms and bathroom was very, very small. We could barely turn around in the shower. The bed was only a full sized which was a... More

Located on a pedestrian street directly behind Dam Square, the Best Western provides a centrally located hotel to begin your exploration of Amsterdam. Taxi access is only before 11:00 AM. After that one needs to walk approximately 500 yards from the nearest street. The rooms are clean, bathrooms week appointed. A continental breakfast is included. Desk staff is extremely pleasant...

Staying in Centrum

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.
