Basically the only thing good about this place is location. Tiny room so small that I had to move my suitcase everytime I wanted to use the bathroom or leave the room. Bathroom door wouldn't lock. Tv's but no remotes. Staff would not print our boarding passes even if we emailed them to them, we're told the manager doesn't like... More

Really good location - 5 min walk from dam square and can walk to everything else (cafés, bars, nightlife, red light district, canals etc) Was also able to walk from amsterdam central train station to the hotel which made getting to and from the airport cheap & easy. No air con in our room which wasn't ideal as the weather... More

Very clean and with all you need just to enjoy the city. The rooms are real small but if you are loking for a place with good shower and bed you will find it. Little noise in early evening but nothing that going to make your time unpleasure. Recommended.

The location was perfect, central to walk almost everywhere and a tram stop in front for farther excursions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than ample and good. The only draw back was the steps- and that is just a part of old Amsterdam. My two teenage daughters and I shared a triple room and it... More

Dear Debbi, Thank you very much for your review. We were happy to have you as our guests. We were happy to read your feedback. As you probably noticed our hotel is situated in a very old building. Over 400 years old even and the building is a monument. The stairs at our hotel are also that old and for... More

The location is very nice near one of the canals. The staff is also friendly. The breakfast isn't exactly amazing but it's ok, there is choice from some things. There is no curfew, someone is always at the desk.

The location was good hotel is on the Main Street close the few attractions Amsterdam has. Room was clean. Breakfast was basic. It was difficult getting our luggage up the steep steps. Room was a good size and clean.

Dear Lindsay, Thank you for your kind review. Our hotel is situated in the heart of Amsterdam. The hotel is situated in a 400 year old building. This is the charm of our hotel. Therefore the entrance is of a typical building in Amsterdam, with the typical stairs. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope... More

Stayed here for a long weekend, excellent base location for exploring the city. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms basic but with all you need. Fresh food at breakfast for a good start to the day. Overall great stay.

Location is perfect. Between Dam and Rembrandt, right in the center. Rooms are ok, quite small and slightly worn out but comfy. A bit noisy-they were drilling in the canal. No desk, so to work I had to sit on bed and it was weary... but if you just want a bed to crash and some food to get you... More

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As you noticed our hotel is in the middle of the city centre.
