A city map clearly shows that the Nes is in a prime location for visiting everything that Amsterdam has to offer. It does not show the pubs, restaurants, cafes, deli and chocolate shop that are all within a few minutes walk from the Nes and that are full of people who live in the neighborhood. Although you can find larger,... More

I like this hotel because it's close to everything, you can walk to the main atractions. It is bit expensive, like all hotels in the area. The receptionist was very nice and helped us to book a taxi for our departure. The breakfast buffet was nice too, the food was fresh. The rooms were small but there was enough space... More

This hotel is very well located. But in the area you have many other hotels, similarly priced, which provide a much better experience. The room is minute, and the water from the shower fills the bathroom. There aren't enough electric plugs so you may need to unplug the tv if you want to charge your phone/iPad. Some of the staff...

Agree with all the recent reviews on the size of the rooms but that said they were clean and well kept. Good location and I found the staff helpful. Breakfast finished a little early for me but a fair selection of food.

The pros: the location. 15 min walking from the central station, 5 min to Dam square, lots of bars, restaurants around but very quite at the same time. Cons: rooms are small. There is not sound isolation. You can hear every whisper in the room next to yours as well as every move when your neighbors have sex. The other... More

Great location! Room was a bit small, but everything was there. Stuff was friendly. Breakfast was OK, not luxurious but OK. Only "bad thing" I can mention was street renovation works in font of hotel during our stay, but luckily the was holiday for workers also.

Nothing works, no service from the staff, location is good but everything else is crap, do yourself a favour and stay somewhere (ANYWHERE!!) else. How this place gets 3 stars I don't know!! Must write some/all of their own better reviews!! That's the only way they could get good reviews in my opinion!!!

Great spot to base yourself for sightseeing, lovely rooms with views, one twin and one double on our last stay. Small rooms, but clean and comfy. Breakfast excellent and staff five star, friendly, welcoming and helpful. I have stayed here three times at different times of the year and always given five star treatment by staff, very professional. Good value... More

For the price and the central location, I thought Hotel Nes was excellent. It is right near Rembrandt Sq. with easy access to transit. I thought it was very clean. But if you're put off by strong cleaning smells like I am, this also might be good place for you. I didn't have any problem there (although this is a... More

Hotel Nes was in a great location - right near Rembrandt Square (with its many bars and restaurants) and on one of Amsterdam's many canals and as such the room had a great view over the canal. The room was basic but clean and comfortable enough for a flying visit to Amsterdam where not much time was spent at the... More
