The room was clean, hip, and comfortable. I loved the design of the place; it's very modern. We thought the bathroom was a bit cramped, and the shower spills... More

A Hotel distinguished by its friendly and knowledgeable staff and Mariska in particular went above and beyond the call of duty to help out when a room had to be changed. The rooms are however very small and much more attention needs to be given to basic cleanliness and housekeeping. The real bonus of this hotel is its great location... More

This was our first trip to Amsterdam. The hotel was conveniently located and we easily walked to most of the attractions. The hotel on the surface appears modern but parts of it could do with updating, particularly the bathroom. We thought our room smelt of smoke and as non-smokers this was a bit of a bother also our room was... More
