Hotel is really very good, nice room, VERY comfortable bed, nice atmosphere, good bar/restaurant (just a shame you have to pay by card). Location is about 20 mins on tram 13 from centraal which is fine but at times we had to wait 15 mins and one time nearly 25 for a tram which is a pain. There is no... More

It so happened that the hotel staff decided that I had to leave earlier than planned, and therefore completely tidy up my room ... tidied up all my stuff as you can imagine. Some things I did return, but the best part of them gone forever. That would feel the unpleasant situation, imagine that you have arrived in another city,... More

Dear Tsekhmaister, First and foremost, having read your review I can only apologise profusely for what happened with both your hotel reservation and with your personal belongings. A mistake had been made in our reservation system. Our housekeeping team followed protocol and cleaned your room the way a room should be cleaned after a guest has checked-out. I am genuinely...

We had 4 night stays in a studio type suite with kitchenette. There are a lot of good points about this place and a few things which make one wonders. Pros: - Close to transport. If you arrive by train to Amsterdam Centraal, catch tram 13 to Jan van Galenstraat. If arrive/depart via plane, catch train to Slotherdijk, then change... More

This is a student dormitory that doubles as a hotel. It will appeal to certain demographics, but since the lobby and cafeteria is often crowded with young people it may not be suitable for guests with children or the older traveler. The building is modern, which is a plus, especially in Europe as for the price you pay here you... More

The Student Hotel, as the name implies, appears to be run entirely by students (younger people, anyway), giving the complex a distinctly funky, youthful vibe. The onsite game room includes a pocket billiards table and ping pong table, and the onsite cafeteria/restaurant offers an appealing array of choices from breakfast through dinner. A small reading library also is onsite, to... More

It’s great to hear that you found all the on-site facilities so appealing, and it’s also very encouraging that you felt your room to be... More

Room is too Small(About 16m) and not suitable for more than one Person.There is no Refrigerator and Safe Box inside the Room. Bathroom size is too Small.

I could imagine that it's a great hotel for students, but I stayed here during a business trip and wasn't happy. Location isn't good to get into the city center, airport is also not directly reachable by public transport. I didn't get the right room in the end, changed my booking, but still got the too small room, which was... More

Located next to trams leading into the heart of Amsterdam, a good allround hotel with lots of inhouse activities and a good bar for a meal to start the day with. Out of the center of Amsterdam the view isn't as perfect as a more central hotel would have, but that's nothing to complain about. The rooms were good, staff... More
