“Totally fit for purpose”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My boyfriend and I went away for a 3 day break to Amsterdam.
I booked this hotel as I read it was great for the price... boy were they correct.
Admittedly its a 8 minute (presice) walk to the tram stop and then a 20 minute tram... however the beauty of this is you can hop off wherever you like... the journeys full of sites and certainly not boring. 24 hour ticket is €10 - well worth buying.
The rooms are small, as I have seen written so many times. They are a lot smaller then I imagined however the scenery, beautiful area and cleanliness of the rooms made up for it.
Staff were friendly and made us feel welcome.
Only thing that took us a whike was finding our hotel. It's in such a gorgeous residential place and not lit up, its very easily missed.

For price - its so perfect for a city break!
Enjoy

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights between Christmas and New Year. We decided to take a taxi from Schipol airport to the hotel, This cost 45 euros and took about 15 minutes.

First impressions of the room was that it was very small but very clean and contained everything we needed. They provided a kettle with a small selection of coffees and teas. TV was included with a variety of English speaking channels such as BBC, MTV and TLC. My boyfriend had trouble falling asleep as he said the mattress was far too soft for him. I found it very comfortable, personal preference I guess.

The hotel is located in a very quiet, residential area. We felt safe staying here. A couple of streets away you will find shops, a small supermarket and takeaways. The reception area also sells a small selection of drinks and snacks.

There are trams and buses nearby, however we tended just to walk into the city centre. Despite it being colder weather while we visiting it was still a very enjoyable walk through Vondel Park to the centre. This took around 20-30 minutes and I found it much more pleasant than taking public transport.

I would recommend this hotel for couples visiting the city for a few days. I think its a little too small to stay for longer or with more people. For us it was the perfect price and perfect location for our trip.

The room was fairly small for two people with luggage but was clean and well maintained. There was a nice view towards the park from our 4th level window. Shower and bathroom also quiet ok. The price we paid was competitive with other cheaper places for a Friday and sat night. Not so close to the centrum but at the same time not so far away if you are taking the number 2 tram which leaves 1 block from the hotel. Also the 197 bus is only a 500 metre walk and provides a 4 euro direct trip to the airport. Don't bother taking a taxi or train to the airport..the bus is quicker.

We had an early checkout (6am) and it was very nice that the night receptionist went to the effort of preparing all breakfast early just for us so that we could eat before we left. This was very much appreciated! Will happily return when we visit Amsterdam again

This hotel is very cosy and In quiet residential area. From here it's easy to access the city by tram and bus which are. Rey frequent, or taxi if you wish. It's about 15mins from the airport by taxi. The rooms are very clean and not as spacious as I would have liked but it was still very comfortable. Staff at the desk were so friendly and always happy to help. There wasn't much of a selection at breakfast which was a little disappointing but there are plenty of places to eat from in the city. Overall I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it too.

Stayed here in March with 2 friends.The rooms were small but cosy.We had 3 single beds but it was all put together so it was like sleeping in one big bed!Very comfy too.Our room had a small balcony overlooking nice houses and a small lake.Its right next to Vondelpark so it was really good.If you don't mind walking,just walk your way out of Vondelpark and you're at the city centre where all the shop,museums,and restaurants are.

Overall,this was a pretty good stay.

ps:tiny tiny lift and dull breakfast :(

We spent 8 nights in a room ,no 205, overlooking Vondel Park. It has a lovely view from the small balcony area. Breakfast was good and it serves till 11 am . However most guests seemed to eat ealier. Vondel Park is big and the nearest park entrance is about 100 metres. The tram service is frequent and the stop for the hotel is nearby. The toilet (wc) and shower share the same floor. It is a "wet" room; a modern trend I noticed in some Irish hotels as well. The slant or incline does not guide the water from the shower into the plug-hole and you have to use the rubber blade that is provided to clear the floor. After that you put down a bathtowel and mop up the water the blade missed. If the shower area was sunk 2 to 3 cms. (an inch) there would not be a problem.
It is a good hotel and I would gladly stay there again. We did not use the Wi-Fi nor the air conditioning. A kettle, tea ,milk and coffee are provided. The staff were helpful and well informed. They answered all our questions and arranged our taxi to the Airport. The fare was 37 euros for the 2 of us, Oct 2013.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out on the Park

Small room and bathroom, but very clean with a comfortable bed. Very pleasant location in a quiet upmarket residential district. Frequent tram service into town just a few minutes away - journey time about 15 minutes. Supermarket and restaurants neraby. Excellent alternative to the more expensive centally located downtown hotels. Hand luggage only!
