3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Small room and ok shower, I recommend renting a bike and touring the city, solid location near Leidseplein. Staff is nice enough and they will help you get a taxi if needed. Breakfast Buffett is decent. Rooms can get warm as there isn't an air conditioning but it wasn't that bad in May

I cannot believe that this hotel has a Best Western brand. I am fairly sure that no one from Best Western has ever visited this hotel to give the stamp of approval. Although in a great location and a very good price for Amsterdam in the high season, the place was NOT clean, NOT very friendly and certainly NOT helpful.... More

An older hotel but clean with friendly counter staff, lift and stairs but manageable, not exclusive but it is not advertised as being this. Whilst we were there the bar was non existant and no fridge in the room.

Great location, value, and excellent staff. The staff went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and pleasant. I really appreciated their assistance. The location is perfect for touring Amsterdam

the hotel is located in the center at leids plain but it's very old and not exclusive - must be renovated got a small room that they called it double superior but it's like a single traditional room asked to change the room day after so the service was good, but the cleaning lost my battery charger

Good nice hotel with very nice people in the reception. Good breakfast. Nice that the tram was so close and easy to go to the center. The rooms were beautiful. The only drawback is that the hotel hasn't got any parking. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Amsterdam!

I booked 2 nights separately as one was a redemption of reward points. I emailed the hotel in advance to make sure that our reservations were merged and we would be staying in the same room for both nights. Upon arrival we were informed that we would have to switch rooms on the second day or stay in a room... More

We decided to go back to Amsterdam for a few days for our Wedding Anniversary. Long haul in January 16 so plumped for cheaper City Break. Why is it when we decide to give Best Western Hotels another chance we always leave saying never again. Where do they get "Best" from? It didnt help it was the hottest week Amsterdam... More

This is a decent and comfortable hotel, nothing fancy but has a great location. Stayed here for 2 nights and it's less than a 5 minute walk to Leidesplein which is the main location of bars and restaurants in Amsterdam so the location of the hotel is it's best quality. It's also a short walk to the Museum District and... More
