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

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
