The hotel is in an excelent location, walking distance to nice museums and with good restaurants nearby. Public transportation available very close. The room was really small (for one person only) but it was enough. Clean and clear. The hotel has an elevator (since, in Amsterdam, it is not sth so common, it was higly appreciated!!). The staff was very... More

The Prinsen is well located as it is just outside the very busy centre but the very centre is a short distance by foot. You can get the 197 bus from Schiphol airport for 5 euro which drops you off close to the hotel. The hotel is basic, in need of renovation but very clean. The staff are very knowledgeable... More

I stayed for 2 nights at the Prinsen Hotel, we were very happy with the room. The hotel is very quaint and centrally located. A little bit out dated but I wouldn't consider that a problem. The receptionists were very friendly and the highlight for me was meeting Jack the Cat, he is a big fat fur ball that made... More

Great central location, but at the quiet street. Close to the Leidse plein and Museum plein. Very nice and helpful English speaking stuff. Clean room. Good choice for breakfast. The dining room facing the nice garden. Old decore. The hotel definitly needs a renovation.

On Business trip, we booked this hotel for 4 nights in December. We just took the normal IC train from Schiphol airport to Amsterdam Central station, followed by tram no.1 or 2 terminals at Station outside. Our room was ready when arriving by 12:00 noon. The receptionists were helpful with attractions in city centre and neighbouring areas. Our room was... More

This unassuming hotel is everything I looked for during my brief stay in Amsterdam in July. The room is small but clean and comfortable; the location is excellent; the service friendly; and the breakfast fine. The hotel rents out bicycles that makes it easy to get around in Amsterdam. I look forward to returning to this lovely hotel next year.

Located near to Vondel park and Leidseplein this hotel is well placed for many city attractions. Despite its central location it is in a quiet street. The rooms are compact but warm, clean and tidy, the breakfast is good as well with a buffet of typical European fare. Stayed her at least three tiems before and keep coming back.
