Sometimes your luck just runs out. We picked this hotel based on reviews from Trip Advisor and the suggestion of our Travel Agent. It was centrally located close to all amenities and sights. Our room faced the main street with trams running every few minutes, but it did not affect us at all. Upon entering the hotel and down a... More

Though the room was small and at times difficult to manouver with my husband and our luggage, it was clean and had charming character. We especially liked the large windows which we could open for fresh air and to admire the views. The location was perfect and we were spoilt for choice on restaurant options. We were also within walking... More

Triple room, quite small, but suited us 3 girls. Hotel was in a great location for visiting all the regular touristy things. 10 mins walk max from the station. We went via the train to Amserdam Central from Airport. Breakfast good. Facilities good. Overall, very pleased with our choice.

I visited this hotel recently, paid quite much even for the centre of Amsterdam and hoped for a quiet room. What I got was a tiny store-room like area painted in lila and dark brown, claustrofobic because the room was very dark, lighting very poor and especially as the window opened to the service-area in the basement, with dirty laundry...

Let me get the small negative part out of the way -This hotel would almost be perfect if it were not for the internet. The only place the internet worked was in the lobby. Hopefully management can correct this concern. Now, let me move on to the positive. The staff is top notch! One of the best ever. Extremely friendly,... More

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
