Amazing location, near to all bars/restaurants/coffee shops. Great view over the canal, wasn't too keen on the continental breakfast but others may enjoy. Cant wait to go back to Amsterdam, overall a great exeperience.

Hotel in a good location for all attractions.Rooms were clean and well maintained.Only downfall was no tea and coffee making facilities and drinks machine was out of order.Although the staff were generally helpful a cup of tea was out of the question. So if you like a nice cupper may be this isnt the best choice for you.

Firstly, I would like to say that the staff that greeted me on my arrival could not have been more helpful... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. I have read some very poor reviews for this hotel. I can only comment on my own experience. We had a room on the same level as reception. A good size and very clean. Breakfast was typical continental and was brought to the room at a time of our choice.That's about... More

Travelling to Amsterdam for a conference. Four of us stayed in this hotel. Suite had two separate but connected rooms (the guys stayed in one, the girls in the other). I enjoyed the hotel as it met our needs. We were not looking for anything fancy, we were simply wanting a place that was close to the center of Amsterdam... More

Reception: After climbing a very steep stair we get to the reception where we are met with a polite lady on the desk who on seeing myself and partner exhausted after the climb, said, I will give you a room lower down as we were meant to be in a room at the top of the hotel.
