“Good Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2014 and it is nice small hotel with all basics covered. We took the tram no 2 from Amsterdam Central station( we bought the 4 days ov card and used it to the maximum) and got off at the Amsteveensweg stop and the hotel is a two minute walk from there. You can also take bus no 197 from the airport and get off at the Harlemeerstation and walk about 5 minutes (Ask for Ron Restaurant as landmark) The hotel itself is in a quite lane, very near to one of the gates of Vondel Park. Very small rooms with smaller bathrooms, but very well kept. Have no complains as we would just come back late at nights and be out early mornings. The reception staff was helpful with directions or general advice. The tram stop is near by and very convenient to get to the touristy parts of Amsterdam using tram no 2. We had breakfast at a bagel place nearby and dint use the restaurant at the hotel as the breakfast was 10 euros. But overall good little hotel in a very quite and good neighborhood. Beds were very soft and one can sink in while lying down.

Excellent Hotel approx. 20 minutes from centre of Amsterdam. Superb walk through Vondelpark takes you there or the buses and trams are only 2 minutes walk away and run very regularly. The hotel is situated in a smart, quiet suburb with plenty of great restaurants and cafes on the doorstep. The hotel rooms are small but have everything you need and the bed was really comfy. We had a quiet room at the back of the hotel, with a really nice view over the park. The breakfasts were fab and there was so much to choose from. For a quality, budget hotel this really was an excellent choice. We booked this as part of a combined Expedia deal and would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending it.

My boyfriend and I have just come back from Amsterdam and could not fault the overall holiday. Bus 197 took us from the Airport to Harlemeerstation, and from there we arrived at the hotel within 5 minutes. The hotel is located in a quiet street and we had a room on the top floor (room 406) which had a great view. Some reviews we read mentioned how small the room and bathroom was but this was not the case for us - we had plenty of space. Yes, there were a few stains on the walls and the carpet looked 'tired' but it was clean and we were only in the hotel to sleep in. The hotel is located on the corner of Vondel Park which is lovely to stroll around. The Van Gogh Museum and the Heineken Experience are close by too. To get into the area with the restaurants etc does take around 30-40 minutes to walk but this did not bother us. The hotel hires out bikes for 16 Euros a day which we discovered is definitely the way to get around Amsterdam. The breakfast is basic but we did not go hungry. Plenty of cereal, fruit, cold meats, cheeses, bread etc, however if this doesn't take your fancy, there is a supermarket that takes about a 5 minute walk to get to. The only extra things I believe the hotel could do with having in each room is a mini-fridge and a safety deposit box. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap stay in a great location. We will most definitely be returning again.

Room Tip: Request a room on the top floor.

Its located in a quiet area. If u take bus no. 197 n stop at Harlemeerstation which is bout 15-20minutes ride from airport. Just walk straight out and directly u will see the bus stops right infront of u after u cross the road. Bus fare cost 5Euros. But we paid after 3-4 stops and the bus driver told us which is only 2.50Euros each. Bargain! Not on purpose as we get on the bus from the back door and there were so many people there and we cant get to the bus driver.

U will see the roundabout when u get down from bus. Walk straight along the main road untill u see the ABN Amro Bank on your right which is about couple blocks away. Screenshot the map to hotel. I find it easier that way. There are a couple of restaurants and cafe along that main road but we find it bit expensive for 25Euros for a maincourse. So we just go to the supermarket on the main road as well to get some snacks n bread.

Room are small as expected for Amsterdam standard but were clean. Toilet are amazingly clean n fully tiled. Down side is we stayed there for 3 nights and only got our mini shampoo n body wash on the last day. WORST thing is after tidying our room, the room cleaner unplug our phone chargers and hide it under our blankets and pillows. My room mate didn't find the charges and was freaking out. So I suppose room cleaner should not touch their clients items. That is the reason I left only 3 stars rating for this hotel.

I find the bed too soft and bouncy for me. The reception help us to book the taxi and it cost 38euros to airport. Well I find it abit pricy as it only takes 15 minutes to get there. But I cant bother to catch the bus as we need to walk to the main road and wait for it in the wee hours.

Not much to look at from the front, along a beautiful residential street (window peeking on the way back on a nighttime when the houses are lit up... guilty pleasure!). Tram stop is about 3 mins walk, get off and walk back up to the Apoteek on the corner, turn left, then right and it's the next road on the left, if you go too far you're walking along the side of the lake. A short walk along Waldeck Pyrmontlaan and the hotel is on the right hand side.

Our first night, despite asking for a twin room, we got a double, probably due to our very late check in... room 1... presumably previously an office or storage room one wall away from the reception desk, so we could hear the night staff conversing... but not unduly so not a complaint! The bathroom is VERY small, you have to sit sideways on the toilet and the shower does flood all over the floor, but the next morning the room situation was rectified without a problem as promised, moved on up to the second floor - we could have been in a different hotel! Room with a view - and what a view! Over the lake at the rear of the property, view of the beautiful house directly across the way (did I mention a penchant for window peeking?!) into the to die for kitchen/dining area straight out of house beautiful! Much better bathroom although still cosy! Gorgeous spring foliage on the trees and lovely weather meant we left the french door/window open overnight.

We didn't take advantage of the breakfast room, basic supplies available from reception for water/snacks etc and homemade soup!

For breakfast, sadly not open on Sunday, we stopped for coffee at (I think it was called) City Bakes, over the pavement from your tram stop - great coffee, delicious bakes and tasty sounding breakfast menu, plus books & newspapers. Tram for travelling back up to town is a little further down the road, over the crossroads - and don't be tempted to get the coffee then catch the tram - no drinks allowed! Tram takes about 20mins to get back to Dam station, 10 mins to Leidseplein. On Sunday we walked through the park, stopped for a coffee on Leidseplein then took the tram up to the station to put our luggage into baggage check & head on out into town again before our flight home. The tram cost e12 for 2 days travel on trams/buses.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back on the upper floors with a view of the lake.

The pluses: staff friendly and helpful; quiet, safe location within a few blocks of the tram and very close to a large, beautiful park; good breakfast; coffee and other hot beverages available 24x7; good wifi.

The negatives: our room seemed very small for two people with very limited space for luggage or clothing; the bed was extremely soft; the carpeting was stained and "tired." Overall, the hotel did not seem worthy of the three star rating.
