I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. It is really a hostel, but much dirtier. 1 star is much too high a rating. We stayed here July 2014. When we arrived, we left the room because of the disgusting rotten cabbage smell. Then our kids saw mice running in the room. No wonder it smelled so rancid. We then... More

I don't like giving bad reviews but there are many poor hotels in Amsterdam and this is one of them. On a positive note the staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. The rooms on the lowest floor are like a dungeon and your window is at street level (meaning you see the shoes of the people walking by on... More

We stayed here on our first trip to Amsterdam a few years ago. The hotel is located within a nice upmarket area and is very close to the famous Vondelpark. It's close to the museum district but quite far from Centraal Station. This didn't bother us. The sun was shining and the walk led us to fall in love with... More

The first night we stayed there the people beside us partied all night, slamming doors yelling in the hallway and being that there was no one at the front desk we had no one to fix the problem. .. this was...

Please do not go to this hotel. I had stayed for 2 days on this property. To begin with the staff at the reception who checked me in was very rude. I still don't understand why they charge 5per tax when you pay via credit card. The room was so small I felt that the walls would fall on me.... More

Good grief! This has got to be one of the worst excuses for a hotel I have ever seen. While I cannot argue with its location being convenient, that does not outweigh rude staff, mice infestations, uncomfortable beds and filthy rooms. Because it was a business trip I was looking forward to getting on with some work in the room,... More

Positives: Close to the museums, nice neighbourhood, after hours front door security lock Negatives: Our room was VERY dirty, outdated, and smelled like a sewer pipe had burst; breakfast was skimp and not worth the cost; no in-room coffee or tea kettle; noisy construction every single morning We will not be returning and cannot offer any sort of recommendation.

The location is good. The hotel seemed nice from the outside but as you walked in you realize it is not. It is never good to have a screen showing security camera footage on the wall. The service is not ideal as they seem disorganized. The owner doesn't seem to respect the people that work for him. We heard complaints... More
