Good location, clean and friendly staff. Not expensive and the building is in the middle of meeting points and attractions, easy to reach every where you like as museums, shopping centers, center of amusement and food. But not suitable to senior citizen that can not through the high stairs since there wasn't lift there.

Great location ideal for the younger traveller due to the steep stairs to get to your room. Don't think it's anymore than a two star but will meet your needs for a base, to visit the city. Plenty of places to eat and buy drink don't buy any in hotel as prices for soft drink are 3 euro cheaper outside.

We stayed as a couple and my partner and I found the room we stayed in unbearably hot. The room was located on the third floor, (bearing in mind how steep dutch stairs are!) so by the time we arrived to our room we were already boiling hot. Alas, we thought we would find some refuge in our room from... More

I'm really surprised this hotel only has a two star rating, I stayed here with two friends in a triple room on the third floor. The hotel was very well located, we were able to walk to everything we wanted to see and didn't need to use public transport at all except from the airport. Having read the other reviews... More

We have stayed here 3 times and every time is excellent. The place is in the best location in the centre and the staff are so helpful. It should be rated much higher than it is. 5 minutes from everything! The patisserie 4 doors up has the best pastries and cakes as well.
