Good location for a short walk to Vondelpark, Rijksmuseum, shopping, restaurants, cafes & canals. Room itself was really nice, bathroom was great, bed was great, cute little balcony, but no... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in August 2015 and loved it! The hotel staff come across as a little grumpy, but i think this is just the Dutch way. The man at reception gave us a map of the city and marked where the hotel was on it. Although we were early for check-in we were... More

The hotel is newly renovated, the staff is friendly and the bathroom seemed pretty clean. (that's the only good part) In the room I found a dirty sock underneath the bed that was probably from a previous guest. Thats gross! It was the noisiest hotel i've stayed in: I was given a room on the ground floor right by the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in June and have no negative comments! The stairs is steep but was not a problem for us and the toilet is so small we could only laugh! Never had a problem with the shared bathrooms and the staff were friendly. We really did not spend much time in the hotel so would recommend... More

The decoration is nice, some of the staff is really nice and helpful.Wi-fi works pretty well. Its very close by foot to the Centre and main transportation... More

I hate giving bad reviews, but when one is due, its due. I was supposed to stay here last week, but the day before my travels, due to unfortunate personal circumstances I was unable to travel. I immediately called the hotel to cancel my reservation, and kindly requested for a refund. And if not a full refund, then at least... More

We booked this hotel rather last minute (about 2/3 weeks before we were due to arrive in Amsterdam) and for the price (£143.50 for 2 nights in a double room) we were not expecting what we got. We were expecting a bit of a shabby hotel but what we got was a beautiful town house hotel within walking distance of... More
