We were visiting Amsterdam for the 2014 World rowing Championships at the Bosbaan. We chose the hotel as it was close to the venue. The hotel is less than 100 metres from the Metro and in a quiet neighbourhood. The staff were very helpful indeed and always ready to help out with explanations of how the public transport system worked,... More

Parking is about 8 Euro per day but free from 7.00pm Friday evening until 9.00 AM Monday morning. Staff... More

We stayed at this hotel during a weekend trip to Amsterdam. It is a modern, bright and very clean hotel. Car parking was free for the weekend as it is in a business area. The hotel provides bicycles. There is also public transport into the centre, but we didn’t try that. The receptionists were very welcoming and helpful both on... More

On top of all these facilities, our guests are served a complimentary Continental breakfast and also a free daily kosher breakfast is available with no advance reservation required.
