We actually moved to this hotel half way through our 5 day trip, due to the poor conditions of our original Hotel. Sara's Boutique was lovely and refreshing compared to our original. Very Shabby Chic style theme, white twisted stair cases, large decorative mirrors. The hotel was extremely clean. On suit bathroom with a shower and a toilet. Complementary toiletries... More

My partner and I just got back from a three night stay in this hotel. I was a bit nervous after reading some of the reviews however we were really impressed!! The hotel is literally around the corner from Leidesplein which has plenty of restaurants and bars, the trams are found here too. The location was the best thing about... More

I stayed here in January 2016 for 3 nights. This hotel offers a mixed bag. Positives first: clean, very clean, actually; good location (out of the centre of town by some 25 mins stroll, but near to the museum quarter etc., and nice bars over the canal); lovely bathroom with rainfall shower, which is just great; modern throughout (though a...

Nice clean hotel, in a great location a short walk from Leidseplain. We were in room 18 which was on the 4th floor. The lift is extremely slow but you soon get used to it. The stairs were very steep with narrow steps so the lift was the best option. The room was large (I think the largest on the... More

Stayed here for two nights and cannot fault the place. Friendly, helpful staff that were genuinely interested in our plans and gave lots of suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Had a room on the top floor with a large window from which we could see the nearest canal. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom... More

This hotel is a great value with a very good location. The room was very nice and clean. I had room 4. The shower had a bit of a water drainage problem due to pitch in the floor so I had to manage that with some towels, but not a big deal. Room was pretty quiet except for some elevator... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the location was perfect. Museums and shops are all close by and the 197 bus will take you directly to the airport for €5. The bed was really comfortable and big. The shower was lovely but there's no space in the bathroom to hang anything or put anything on a shelf. The... More

+ The room was cosy, big comfy bed, location was great. We had a good sleep. I do recommend to stay on the top floor though. - The lift that they have installed is the slowest I've ever seen in my life, took about 5min to go up to the 4th floor, not for the claustrophobic ! there are no... More

First off, someone from the property should should check these reviews because when you search it, you get pictures of some other old hotel. This is a NEW renovated property in full. My door was so shiny and glossy from newness. I had a single room. Room very small to be expected. Bathroom had a great rainshower and hand held... More
