We stayed here for 2 nights last week. It's in a great location and was everything we needed - central, clean and tidy, breakfast provided, late check-out and able to store our luggage on our last day. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room and bathroom were spotless. We were at the front of the hotel but, despite... More

Me and my Mum stayed here for 3 nights on a mini-cruise from Newcastle and we loved it! It's not luxurious but it's in an excellent location and our room was nice. It was quite warm due to the restaurant below but we didn't hear any noise or any cooking smells. We had breakfast on a tray in our room... More

Rooms are not exactly cheap (270 euros for two nights) with breakfast.. But the location is ideal to roam around the city at anytime. Walking can take its toll in Amsterdam and you need a place quite central to spend the night then this hotel is ideal. Rooms are small but clean, 24 hour reception and plenty of different choices...

The hotel once you've found it, is on top of everything you need for a good stay in Dam. You get what you pay for, receptionists are ok, polite and happy.
