Stayed in here twice now, comfiest hotel beds I've ever slept in. In a really great central location just off the square surrounded by lots of nice restaurants and fast food take outs. The staff are also really friendly and helpful. Will be back.

Just came back from a 4 day visit to Amsterdam with my friend and we couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel. The hotel was in the perfect location as it was within walking distance to all the tourist attractions. There were plenty of restaurants and bars right on the door step. The room was basic but you pay for what... More

Decent enough right by dam monument. A slightly fiddly showerexperience and our bathroom smelt very musty . Consider that e it s in an older building in the center so slightly crooked very steep stairs. Very soft beds. Fine for one or two nights.breakfast til 10 in the weekend and thin walls .

Stayed here during a conference at Tobacco Theater which is only 5 minutes away on foot. Actually, most downtown things are only 5-10 minutes away on foot... Dam Square is 1 minute away, Centraal station 10 minutes. Lots of snack restaurants in the street of the hotel and the red light district just across the next canal led to a... More

On a hen weekend with 7 other girls this hotel was picked because of location and it certainly paid off! The proximity to bars, red light district and fun stuff was amazing it's literally on your doorstep great in a group where some people got the worse for wear meaning you could stick them back in bed and carry on...

Had a fantastic stay here with the family. Perfect location right beside Dam Square which meant it was never hard to find our way back! The big front room on the 1st floor was great for the kids and we had the adjoining double room next door. Slept like a log despite being next to a very busy street as... More

We needed a hotel for three of us as a last minute deal. This was one of the only ones available. The room was big, however the bathroom was tiny; it was basically a wet room. It was in a great location just off Dam Square, and took us 10-15 minutes to walk there from the central station. Had a... More
