“Overpriced, tatty rooms not worthy of 5 stars!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

What was supposed to be a special treat in a famous hotel was utterly disappointing. The rooms in the old part are tatty and in the new part, although modern & stylish are so small and look out over the crummy alleyway at the back of the hotel. Although it remains in a great location on the Dam square, it is not what it has been or should be at these prices!

Room Tip: We changed rooms three times and choose to stay in the older part as the rooms are bigger than the n...

My husband and I stayed here for a much cheaper price than published by arriving in AMS and visitng the VVV (tourist info) across from train station. Last minute paid off but don't bet on this during high season like Queen's Day (April 30th). We were given a room towards the back corner so we had a great view where we could people watch and avoid the noise of Damrak/city centre. We even had a eucalyptus steam shower/sauna. Bed was awesome and comfortable. The hotel staff was very nice. We really could not beat the price or location. When you walk out the front or side of the hotel you are smack dab in the middle of city centre. Easy access to trams,train station, boat tours embarkation, and all activity in main square. Would definitely recommend especially if you can get a smoking deal from tourist information.

Room Tip: Corner suites towards the back feature a view and are quieter. We also had a eucalyptus shower/saun...

My husband and I wanted a relaxed stress free break with a hotel in a central location- well this is it!
Although the hotel is definitely used for commercial use (there were 3 large conferences being held in our hotel in the 4 days we stayed there)it still enabled tourists to feel relaxed and well cared for.
We stayed in the newly refurbished rooms , these are minimalistic in terms of decoration but perfectly designed and very comfortable. But if you're looking for a homely atmosphere these are not the rooms for you.
Amsterdam is a great city for a couple of days with so much to see- I'd recommend a day trip out of Amsterdam too if you are staying more than 2 nights. we went to Maarken, Valendam , the windmills and had a really good time.
