First of all, the pictures that they provide are NOT accurate. They make their property look very charming and quaint, which was NOT my experience. I expected to pay a bit in order to stay in a hotel with a carkpark/parking lot, but when we got inside, we were bewildered to see what our money had bought. This hardly fits... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for five nights. It was very nice in most ways! The room was clean and quite big and the housekeeping was nice. In the lobby there is a mini restaurant which is open until late in the evening so it was possible to eat something very late if you wanted to. The bar was... More

The hotel was in a Boring location. The room was ok, very basic, but poorly cleaned. The AC didn't work. It was cheap but we have visited much better hotels with in that pricerange. It was fairly easy to walk to the nearest tram station, to get in to the center of Amsterdam

The rooms were large and the beds were very nice. The staff was very nice and helped us with all our questions. The staff spoke several languages, even Danish. I don't understand why everyone is so concerned about this hotel.

After seeing many bad reviews I was concerned about staying however for the money this hotel was perfect. Rooms were basic but large and our double bed was huge. Everything was clean and maids gave us new towels and toiletries each day. Free wifi was good to check maps and transport round the city and seeing as your on holiday... More
