Fabulous location next to the beautiful park and in walking distance of the majority of the central attractions. Room clean, fresh towels everyday and a brilliant shower. We happened to stay in a heat wave so it was very hot at night but the fan helped. Some noise from late night cyclists on the street but nothing terrible. And as... More

What a wonderful small hotel! A stone's throw from Vondel Park, the location is excellent. We had a quad room in the back overlooking the garden. We had our windows wide open and could hear birds in the morning. The room itself was a bit cramped, but we didn't mind. Only real negative was the toilet which one had to... More

I was on business trip last week in may 2014. the hotel is located very good, most of the ways either to the RAI either to the city centre can be reached by foot. the hotel itself is nice, cosy and clean. equipped with standard furniture and a very soft mattrass you'll enjoy your stay. Internet connection works quiet constantly... More

After reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, I was a bit apprehensive about staying here, however after staying here for a long weekend, I was quite pleased with the place and would stay again. Our room and bathroom (room 62 on ground floor) were nice, I didn't have breakfast so I can't comment on that. The only... More

Where do I start ????? This was the only hotel left in Amsterdam that had vacancies at the last minute and I now see why !!!! I was travelling with my elderly father and the holiday was decided upon at the last minute and was a bit of a treat for us both. The hotel decidedly WAS NOT..... Upon arrival... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nighst in a small double room... and it was small, very small. if you stay here for more than 3 nights go to the larger... More

This hotel is just about ok. We stayed there for 5 nights and the charges were crazy for the quality of the room that they have. There are no air conditioners in the room and you have to open the window which can be noisy! The bathroom was really small and the amenities in the room just basic. The housekeeping... More

Characters: the front desk clerk and myself Time: 1 a.m. in the morning We open on an exhausted traveler, who had already been kept awake by the noise of the other hotel guests coming through the paper-thin walls. She is standing in a run-down lobby, which smells faintly of pee. Me: There is a mouse in my room. It ran... More

Do not book this place!!!!! When we arrived, we were told that they had overbooked us and they cannot give us an accommodation. Without even an adequate apologise, they put us into a taxi and send us off to another one of their hotel in a less desirable location. Not worth the money and the stress!!! The service is terrible!!!!

I agree with everything Marjie (last review) has written. The breakfasts were very good and frequently replenished by attentive staff. In hotel info. we thought there was a bar/lounge but this is not the case. The 197 bus from outside the airport (5 euros one way) gets you to the Museum area which is not far from the hotel. This...
