IN A CITY THAT IS SO EASY TO GET AROUND, AND WITH SO MANY HOTELS, STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE. In between 2 night clubs and on a noisy canal...no sleep. Would have closed the window to block the street noise, but no AC. The hotel is dirty and in disrepair. Smelly damp carpeting everywhere. Threadbare towels and exposed wires... More

Let’s start with the good points. It’s located next to the Flower Market, facing a canal, close to restaurants, food market and tramways. The free breakfast is fair and the people at reception are very nice. That’s it for the positive side. Now the dark side. There is no elevator. The stairways are very steep and steps are narrow to...

Great location, just down Kalverstraat and all near Leidsestraat, ideal for shopping, with very friendly staff and smiling but that's all !! This hotel falls a bit ruined, dilapidated room, stained carpet and noisy,... a bit limited.

This hotel is set right on the Singel Canal, next to the Flower Market. The absolutely best thing about this hotel is its location, because it is close to the centre and tram stops, plus easy walking distance to the train station and the Anne Frank Museum. The building itself is a traditional tall and thin canal house and therefore... More

Stopped here on Sat 5th April for one night on our way to Malaysia. Our room was on the top floor, with a separate bathroom just across the small corridor. Note the bathroom is not shared - it goes with the room only. Very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. The room is basic but the bed is comfortable. In need of... More

This hotel was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Also in a central position to explore the city. Given the reasonable cost the shabbiness could be coped with. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the inner courtyard, where on the Friday evening a very noisy event took place, however this was not repeated on subsequent evenings.... More
