We stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights in early September, 580 euros, breakfast included. I've replied on TripAdvisor reviews for years and this is the first time I’ve been disappointed. The only good things about this hotel are: location and staff...especially Sooki (sorry for misspelling) behind the front desk. She went out of her way to give me the... More

We spent 4 nights here last week in room 116. This room is definitely NOT one of the ones they advertise with!I had booked a "king" size bed, but obviously the definition of King size is different from what it means in Canada! The bed was nearly a Queen size but not King! the only King sized thing in this... More

Hotels in this area are pricey, however my stay here was very pleasant. Free wifi in the rooms which is great! They allowed us to check in early which was even better since we took an all night flight. Continental breakfast was great. I would definitely stay here again during my next trip here.

Great hotel, perfectly situated close to the Dam square, the Palace and Cathedral.The centre of Amsterdam is very lively and at most times of the year there are entertainers and funfairs and music. The hotel is around 400 yards from the Central Station and is an easy walk down the Damrak.

The hotel is just off the Dam Square, perfect location for walking and sight seeing. Very nice breakfast and wonderful people helping behind the desk. Danielle who was on Vacation organized everything for our stay and it was 10 Star. The hotel is clean, quiet and directly across the road from The American Cafe, serving decadent desserts and sandwiches, etc... More

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

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
