“An OK Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This is a typical old style Amsterdam Hotel. Narrow and high with steep stair cases.
The romms were comfortable and clean but could do with a little bit of modernisation. Everything worked including the shower. No bath but that didn't bother me as I never use hotel baths but may put some people off.
Our room was on the second floor and the second set of stairs in particular were very steep and quite difficult with large cases.
However this said, the rooms were very reasonably priced for Amsterdam. There seams to be many older style hotels like this and then the large international hotels in the city centre but not much in between. If you want all mod cons with Resturants, Bars Lifts etc go to one of them but be prepared to pay. This is a very expensive city with hotel rates that reflect this.
On the plus side althought he hotel is a little way out of the centre it is right on a tram line which passes the front door and stops 50 metres down the road. One simple journey straight into the city centre which passes all the tourist attractions and museums etc. Hotel is also close to Vondelpark which is great for walking. Walk this way into town and look out for the parrots in the trees.
Breakfast was fine although the breakfast room could get a little crouded if everyone came down at the same time.
All in all good value for money in an Ok location.

Ideal location 15/20mins on the number 2 tram, nice and clean. Breakfast could have been slightly better but apart from that no complaints. Would definatley book again. Would recommend to others. However be careful when you walk up the stairs. They are very steep and could cause a problem if you have a large case/baggage.

Room Tip: Be careful whe you clime the stairs!

We went to stay at this hotel for two nights last week and for the price range it was really quite good. It is easily accessible by the number 2 tram so if you want to you can avoid having to get a taxi and you can also walk back to it through the park which we did a couple of times. The breakfast is average but buffet style and the bathroom in our room was brand new the shower had good pressure but it had a mind of its own when it came to hot and cold. Also in the hall way there were discount vouchers for all of the major museums. However watch out there is a 6% surcharge for using a credit card this can be avoided if you pay by cash at the hotel but they do not tell you about this at the time I have just had to email them to find out why there were extra charges made to my card! There is also a city tax of 5% if you pay over £100:00 for your stay again they did not make that clear at the time of booking.

Room Tip: Book early

Me and my wife stayed in this nice little family hotel for a weekend. First when we made the booking we chose a prepayd booking because the price was very appealing. They charged us full amount at the day of the bookings and we did not encounter any hidden charges - everything was explained when we booked it.
As the prices were lower than in other hotels, we were not sure about the quality, but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised.
The location was perfect for us. It is very close to the beutiful Vondelpark and all the most famous museums were in walking distance. There is a tram stop 100m from the hotel and tram No 2 takes you to the Central Station.
The staff was very welkoming and helped us finding all the places we wanted to see. They also showed us a nice restaurant very close to the hotel.
Our room was very clean and comfortable and we were very pleased with it.
The next morning we took breakfast and headed to the museums.
Overall very nice hotel for good price.

I've made online reservation at this hotel, the price was 589 euro for 5 days, they charged me 656 euro at the date of booking. Than I've made cancelation 24 days before the arrival date but the payment was not returned.
I've never dealed with such a cheating before - be very careful if you decide to make online booking at this hotel......

Most effecient and very friendly staff. Was there with my family and really enjoyed the great hospitality and the rooms we got were of very high standard. What we paid was a fraction of similar hotels in Amsterdam with the type of rooms we got.
Definately recommend this hotel to all.
