For: good location near the Munt and on the Amstel, nice views, one nice reception man. Against: narrow, very steep stairs, worn out decor, 5% extra on bill not advertised on website, twin bed request not honoured and an unsavoury exchange ensued; female non-Dutch 'manager' had an appalling attitude, very unfriendly and unhelpful, room very small, safe broken, average breakfast...

Anything that could be good in this hotel has been erased by a little visitor that came to us in the morning: a rat. Could be one or several, and it could be in the night among our clothes. Can you imagine?! We asked to change the room, but the new room have no window! Asked again, and now we... More

This narrow townhouse converted into a hotel certainly evokes Amsterdam's maritime history. From the landing window there's a fine view of the Amstel river with various craft passing by the lock gates. The staircases are steep and narrow enough to resemble the between-decks stairs on a Dutch Golden Age sailing vessel. The rooms are small enough to suggest ships' cabins.... More

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

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.
