I can only agree with the good things people have said about this hotel. Good location a few minutes walk from the centre and yet in a quiet side street so no noise. Very nicely decorated and maintained inside and very clean. Pleasant staff and a good continental breakfast with plenty choice. I had read that the rooms were small.... More

Nice relaxed hotel in a good area with easy access to city centre and De Pijp area. 5 minutes walk from Heiniken brewery and 10/ 15 into centre with good tram service also. Good breakfast and rooms were clean and well serviced. We would stay here again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were tidy and clean and there was even tea/coffee en suite. Breakfast was very good. If there was something missing, it was made available within short time. The hotel was perfectly located for us. There were several tram stations/lines just around the corner which made it easy for us to reach... More

Eu e minha família chegamos no Nicolaas Witsen "no susto", porque tivemos um problema com o outro hotel. Mesmo assim, foi uma grata surpresa, porque os atendentes eram simpáticos e supersolícitos, entendendo nossa situação e permitindo que fizéssemos o check-in ainda de manhã, já que havia quartos disponíveis. O hotel é bem localizado, perto de duas estações de bonde, que... More

Had a bit of a boutique pub feel without really having a pub. Decor had a bright fresh feel to it. Was a short walk from the tram and in a reasonably quiet side street. A quaint lift is appreciated in lieu of lugging bags upstairs. Our room wasn't overly big but as we were out all day sight seeing,... More

Nice hotel out of the centre but ideal if you want to travel around Room was small but very clean, as was the whole hotel. Staff were friendly and good breakfast with plenty if choice for us, and great coffee. Would recommend based in the above and very good value for money.

Located 5 minutes by Tram from Central Station, this wonderful hotel is very close to the heart of life in Amsterdam, yet tucked quietly along a side street so you can get a good nights rest in between your busy days. Very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and with a superb team of staff who were very friendly, helpful, polite and... More

Nice, clean and comfy twin room. No safebox in bedroom as mentioned on expedia website.Breakfast is average, no variety. You have to pay for parking at the meter on the street in front of the hotel, however, parking is limited we got lucky to find 1 spot available. Great location, 10 to 15 min walk till you get to lively... More
