The hotel is a 30 minute walk from the train station, but it is possible to take a tram and then it's faster (15 minutes). The staff is friendly and helpful and the room we stayed in was small but perfect for our needs. It had 2 beds and a bathroom and a shower that were OK, the only problem... More

My friend and me booked a twin room here on a weeknight for a city trip to the city. We were a bit confused when looking for the hotel, as it is in the Nicolaas Witsen Staat, which is perpendicular with the Nicolaas Witsen Kade (another street) but when we found the place, we were very satisfied with it.

Nice and clean, helpful and friendly staff. Generally a good hotel, no problems whatsoever and enjoyed my stay here. Location is a bit out of the way, but i like walking so didn't mind anyway. It is probably a 20/30 min walk to central area at a slow pace. They have regualar trams also if you don't want to walk..

Hotel easy to find and really useful for the museum area. Room was small but very clean and comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast included. Would go back.

For someone who wants to "feel" Amsterdam is a little bit far from centre but it has a tram line very near. 15 min walk (to red light district). The breakfast is very good, the only "less good" thing is the lack of fruit... Very clean room. Staff very helpful.

I stayed for two nights with my friends. Clean rooms. Stuff is always at your service and very helpful and friendly. The hotel is pretty close to the center of the city and the block is very quiet in general. If I'd went to Amsterdam again. This is the hotel i'd stay. It is a 10/10 for a hotel of... More

We had requested a room with bathtub on a high floor but none of our requests were fulfilled which was somewhat of a disappointment. Our double bed was two beds pushed together and the beds were on wheels which meant that you were at risk of falling between the beds at night. Breakfast was basic buffet style but still good....

We were here 4 nights and loved every one. It's pricier than we like to pay, but was worth the extra expense for the central location, the helpfulness of the staff, and the fine and varied breakfasts. The room was small, but probably no more so than many central city hotel rooms, and it was very, very quiet. The shower... More

There were ten of us, all males, in Amsterdam helping our friend David celebrate his 70th birthday. This hotel was perfect. They negotiated for 10 rooms, Alex the manager booked an excellent restaurant Simpel for dinner and could not have been more helpful. The location was a brisk walk from the centre although some of our older team members did... More

Great great experience, hotel is easy to get to, take tram #4 from central station and walk one block and you are there! the staff is fantastic and very willing to help you in whatever you need. Breakfast is sufficient (pastries, juice, cheese, fruits etc). Located on a quiet street with a park nearby. Room was clean, wi fi was... More
