Location here is excellent, v close to everything - shopping areas, palacestraat, red light etc. Worth staying for area alone! We stayed on fifth floor & had no problems with noise.Rooms are small but spotless, wifi is intermittent at times would definitely stay here again.

Great location. Only a 5 min walk from Centraal Station. The room was very clean as was the toilet/wet room. TV had a number of English channels. Reception was very friendly. Only downside was that it was quite noisy. The trams in particular are very loud when one is trying to sleep off a hangover...but that's the cost of having... More

The receptionists are very good and check in was quick and easy. The room and bathroom was nice and there was a huge... More

Good hotel in a great location just a short walk from the main railway station and another short walk into the centre of Amsterdam, our room and facilities were both very good,breakfast continental but fine wi-fi was a bit limited on the higher floors, but all in all the hotel was a good choice.

Great location, breakfast included however around 10am the breakfast room was quite crowded and the staff was very slow to arrange a table. I would suggest changing a type of the 'juice' being served as it was quite tasteless. We stayed in a tripe room. The room was quite small for 3 people however cozy and warm. Great, spacious shower... More
