This is a budget hotel but it appears to be connected to the larger hotel next door which was being decorated and upgraded. Free tea and coffee in rooms and breakfast was continental but plenty of choice. Steep stairs but lift. Staff helpful. Very good position on the canal and near shops, trams etc Room was clean and basic

If you are looking for more than simple bed and breakfast this may not be the place for you. If like my partner and I you want a comfortable place to stay whilst spending the days exploring the City its perfect. The room was clean and warm, the staff friendly and the hotel was situated just yards from the tram... More

Our hotel booking was supposed to be at the Quentin Hotel. (right next door) but when we went to check in they told us that we were actually booked in this hotel. Quentin being a 3 star hotel and the "sister" hotel to King Hotel, which is a 2 star. We had a group of 9 people requiring 5 rooms.... More

The room was ok , we expected a... More

The hotel has a great location and is a good starting point if you are going to the center. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are relatively clean. This is all good that can be said. Our room was very small. So small you couldn't open the closet door because of the bed. The bed (they considered it... More

My new wife and I stayed at this hotel whilst touring Europe on our honeymoon - (when we mentioned this to the hotel we also recieved a very kind complimentary upgrade). A nice small and charming hotel on the canal. We didn't arrive in Schipol until 6.45pm and arrived at the hotel about 7.15pm to a friendly and welcoming receptionist.... More

Very very pleased with this hotel. Helpful staff. Decent breakfast. Very clean room. Location was on the side street and a short tram journey to places was needed. Great value for money and would recommend for a short stay.

The hotel was adequate but worn in places, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room a bit cramped but with a good high ceiling, we found it a little over-priced based on the quality and price of previous places we've stayed in Amsterdam. It's in a good, central location, and wasn't noisy as the road wasn't busy (we were... More

Centrally situated and an easy tram ride from Amsterdam's main station, the King Hotel is a converted canalside house. Its rooms are small but clean, and the hotel is in a quiet street – yet it’s just three minutes from Leidseplein, with its busy nightlife, restaurants, bars and jazz clubs. It’s also within striking distance of the Rijksmuseum and the... More
