“A Hotel with Personality!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This hotel speaks to its guests. Its rooms are begging you to love it, with the quirky, personal descriptions on the door that welcome you ("I have always been your room, we just haven't met until now. Remember me always, I am room 123"), the soap dispenser and towels which share messages about the environment and how much you mean to them. The glass walkway between tower a and b has interpretive signage describing the plantings (sedum, dianthus) and wildlife (bees, a cat!) you will see along the way. The descriptions are humorous and we actually did see the cat which was depicted, many times.

The staff was excellent. We didn't try the breakfast buffet but opted for something cheaper. I would have given this a higher rating, but the lack of any way to unpack your suitcase or anywhere to put your clothes was a minus, because we had to live out of the suitcases on the floor for 3 days. This may have been because our room looked like it was wheelchair accessible, but it would have been nice to have the option to raise the suitcases without taking up chairs or the table. That said, the room was a nice size, the bathroom was HUGE and we really liked the location: close enough to the park but far enough from the tourists and conveniently across from the tram stop. Wish we could have opened the window more than a few inches at the top because we were there at a warm time of year.

We enjoyed our stay, and appreciated how eco-concious the hotel was. Wish they would open up some in the states!

Room Tip: Tower B is very quiet. Our room (125) was warm (the weather was unseasonably warm and sunny, which w...

Hi,

Thanks for the review! Glad to see you liked our 'roofsafari' (as we like to refer to it)!

Next time you stay with us, just ask and we will happily unlock the window for you in hot times like these.

Hope to see you again!

This is a great hotel, really a 4.5, at the Southern edge of the Vondelpark, right on the tram (that will get you into the center in 7ish minutes) and dozens of restaurants ranging from the high end to cafes to pancakes to coffee to a supermarket (if you want to make your own sandwiches, etc). I chose this hotel because I have lived in the neighborhood and just needed a one night stay between flying from Japan and home to the US. It's a great choice. The hotel doesnt include breakfast but most in Amsterdam don't. However, I did have coffee at the hotel and it was excellent and reasonably priced. There is a pancake place less than 30 seconds outside the doors as well as a place for "tosties" (basically grilled cheese with tomato, ham, etc) and coffee places a similar distance. Nice bathroom with shower gel, TV with multiple international channels, free wifi, recycling, just great! My one small complaint is that the white walls need repainting - there are lots of scuffs and marks and it makes the overall quality and ambience of the room seem lesser than they should in a high quality hotel such as this. Also, this hotel doesn't have air conditioning. So if it's hot, as can be the case in The Netherlands during the summer, I don't think I'd stay here.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room away from the street and the woman at the desk was super accommodating.

Hi!

Thanks for your review! We love hearing about we you like and didn't like and will always try to improve our hotel and its services.

Good to hear that you liked our coffee and such a shame you didn't opt for breakfast; it's very yummy too!

I have passed on the remarks about the walls in the rooms to our maintenance and although he's usually a nice guy, he wasn't too happy about the walls either.. ;-)

Hope to see you again and spread the word!

The location is great if you want to be away from the massive tourist area. Next to Vondelpark, great for escaping the city rush, jogging, relaxing... There are also plenty of neighbourhood cafes nearby and the tram that runs in front of the hotel to go into the action.

Great hotel- very clean and good location. Helpful staff. Liked the commitment to environment- that's why we chose to stay there. Very comfortable bed. Tram stops right out the front and fifteen minutes from station.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights and really liked it.

Room was small but did have a king size bed in it which was nice. Little else in room except small table and bedside tables and TV.

Bathroom clean, modern and functional.

Great service and location.
Recommend it for couples and single professional types.

I only had 1 night booked at this hotel, but I will be back with friends soon to experience more!

The hotel has a young design, and they have a great casual communication style, making you feel at home instantly.

The highlight for me was the breakfast which was fully organic, great quality products, especially loved the homemade granola and the OJ machine!

The location is good, on the edge of the Vondelpark, which is great for jogging, or you can use one of the hotel bikes. You can catch a tram directly in front of the hotel to the city heart.

Room Tip: Room 612 is one of the top rooms, they come with a lovely balcony, looking out over the city. Worth...

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Location is great, 5 minute tram from the city centre that is directly outside the hotel. The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, great staff, very modern, has a lovely bar and is good for the environment! Stay in this hotel!!!!!!
