Pros: Comfortable bed, location, WiFi Cons: Security, size of room (shared bathroom), noise from housekeeping and other guests, credit card 5% charge, breakfast, value (approximately 150US dollars per night for the single room) The biggest issue with this hotel is the security. I had to default to a single room due to few choices in the city on this weekend.... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel in late June 2014, we found the place to be very small and untidy. When we first got there, we were confronted with a steep stair case. We had to carried our luggages up the stair to the receiption. When checked in, we were told to pay extra charges for tourise tax.... More

Stayed for the weekend, thought I was in a set from trainspotting. Got Home and they took £300 out of my account for no reason. I tried to get it back but they basically said because I gave them my bank details they could do what they liked. It's people like this that make folk nervous about giving out details.

After the search, we chose this hotel for a relatively good price and good location and really disappointed us. After we arrived, we found ourselves in the center of town, where we were given a short time everywhere: the main square, shops, attractions, etc. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist and we stayed in a nice studio...

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.

Having booked this Hotel on short notice through LateRooms.com , I did not have high expectations, on any front. So despite having set the bar extraordinarily low , I still found points where the bar was way too high. Firstly, I would like to say that the staff that greeted me on my arrival could not have been more helpful... More
