I went with three friends and we stayed in a family room, there was more than enough room, it was clean and tidy, we were given fresh towels when we wanted and the bed were comfortable with enough pillows and blankets provided. The hotel staff were so friendly and welcoming and were happy to help us with anything we needed.... More

We have just got back from a 4 night stay. The staff were friendly and the room although small was clean. This is the only hotel I have been in where the reception is about 4 shops down from the actual hotel. So you get your key go back out and walk about 4 shops down through a door and... More

Hi This is a 2 star hotel in the center of Amsterdam, if you are young and traveling across Eu this might be a good idea but for anyone that cares about hygiene or comfort this would be a very bad experience. My room had a used tissue beneath the bed, hairs scattered in the shower, on the toilet and... More

We stayed here 1st-3rd in two couples, location was amazing considering the price, bedroom was modern, service was so lovely. Location was bang in the middle between dam square and the red light district Staff were always there to answer our questions and when asked to book us a cab to the airport they made the taxi driver come in...

I had a twin room right at the top of the hotel, normally this is my first choice, but I'm a large guy and climbing (yes i had too) up to the top was a once a day exercise for me. This was in a good location next to some nice shops, i would stay again but ask for a... More

For the price, you can't fault this hotel. We had a quadruple room - which was surprisingly large after reading the reviews. The only problem with the room itself was that it had a strange smell to it - and the bathroom was very small. I wouldn't stay at the hotel for a weeks stay in Amsterdam, but it's ideal... More

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.
