Myself and 7 girlfriends descended on Amsterdam for a long weekend - we had four twin rooms in this hotel. We weren't too sure what to expect, over Valentines weekend we felt we had got a great deal which can leave you wondering why... BUT this place was perfect for what we needed. The staff - they deserve full marks.... More

Was planning to stay here for 2 days but after I experienced their super service and the nice clean rooms I decided to stay for a full week. It is located in the center of amsterdam and the connection to other parts of the city were just outside of the hotel (trams, taxi's, bicycle renting). The people at the desk... More

My 5th visit to Amsterdam and my 3rd time at this hotel and just as good as when I first stayed when I was 21. Superb location, excellent reception staff and everything you need from a base to explore an excellent city. It is more suited to groups of friends than couples but I personally would stay here with my... More

This hotel is a lot more than what we expected before we arrived. As it is a "two star" I was not expecting very much at all, and having stayed in other two stars in Amsterdam previously, I would not have been surprised. This is actually a very nice hotel, it is clean, well located, reasonably priced for its very... More

Stayed in this hotel with a group of friends. Staff were very friendly and welcoming from arriving to leaving. Rooms are very basic but really good for the price. Bathroom was abit dated, but everything clean and i guess that's all that matter. Excellent location close to everything.
