Hotel looks a bit bad from the outside & the reception was locked when we first got there. After we got our room it was nice, warm & clean. It had wifi too :) very nice hotel & good location. Ausra on the reception was very helpful & pleasent. Would definitely use this hotel again :)

Having read many of the other reviews, we were a bit anxious. Turned out many were right on both the positive and the negative issues. A little of both, but not enough to scare you away. Like many have stated, the location is excellent. A few minutes walk and you are in the heart of the city. Amazing enough, from... More

We booked this Hotel way in advance as we saw a cheap deal with Booking.Com. We arrived to check in with our guaranteed booking from Booking.Com to be told by the very rude receptionist that our booking had been cancelled by them a month before. She could give no reason, just a problem with credit card (there is no problem... More

We ended up in the hotel by happenstance after our original reservation was cancelled by error. It was a serendipitous experience. Hotel was warm and welcoming with very good vibes. Great location - walking distance from the periphery to the inner canals; tourist advisement for any first time amsterdam tourists, the city is actually very deceptive in its size. Small... More

The hotel is very easy to find, just hop on the number 1 tram from the Centraal station and it pulls right up on the Overtoom. We were close to all the concert venues we wanted to visit, literally 5 minutes to the Melkweg, Paradiso which was great after a night out. Great bars in the Leidsplein, lovely atmosphere. The...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights, we couldn't believe how great the location was! Just a five min walk from leidsplein and 15 mins to Dam square (although it doesn't feel as long due to all the shops that are scattered along the way). So location is brill. The rooms are clean and the bathroom was modern.... More

Good things first: Excellent location just around the corner for Leidseplein. Free coffee and tea in the reception. Kettle with tea bags in the room. The room was very quiet, as requested. Not so good: The far from romantic bed configuration; the beds were placed after another with a wall between. This configuration would probably suit two friends better than... More
