Anyone who is leaving bad reviews for this place must of stayed somewhere else! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was small but tidy. Fresh towels daily. The bathroom as most have been complaining about is just a wet room! Not an issue... More

Travelled in June 2014, as a group of five friends. First I want to say few words about location, which is really great. From Amsterdam's central train station, which is most popular way to reach the city centre from the airport, you'll have approximately 10 minutes walk, and that's really great even if you have some heavy bags with you....

Stayed here and the location is perfect for a lads stag do break away. In the middle of the canal ring with plenty to do in walking distance. The bar next door was great for a drink in the sun. Breakfast was basic but filled a hole.

Well, we travel to Amsterdam quite a lot and were attracted to this hotel by a photo which showed it overlooking a canal - thought it would be quaint and romantic. In reality this is a very shabby, down at heel joint in the red light district of Amsterdam. All the furnishings were worn and it desperately needed a full... More

Flushed the loo and it came up through the shower plug hole. Toilet flush broken, lights in room didn't work - noisy. Some moron was hammering and using an electric drill all night. Staff OK but it really was bad, I've seen cardboard boxes bigger than my room. Needless to say I didn't use the shower - god alone knows... More

First of all we orderd a quad room with single beds, we got a double with bunkbeds. Although we didnt mind as the room we stayed in (32) was spacious and overlooking the canal. Its a maze to get to your room, especially when we had been drinking. The hotel staff where alright, although they did knock a few times... More

10 - 15 walk from the train station. No lifts/elevators in this hotel so pack lightly! Many different staircases so remember where your room is - I got lost a few times looking for my room. The room overlooking the canal. Small room with a comfy bed and small portable TV. The shower was opposite the room - water pressure... More
