“Great Room, Great Location, Great City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I arrived on a Saturday around noon and my room was not available so came back around 3pm and desk person went to check if my room was available but said it was not so she checked with the manager on duty and she gave me a different room and a big smile. I arrived at my room and it was huge but had no bed just couches and tables and large bathroom. I checked all the doors and one led to a typical dutch stairwell and I climbed and realized my bedroom was upstairs and as large as the downstairs floor with an office area. There were televisions on both floors (not flat screens but with this room, I could not complain). Besides the 1000 sq. ft duplex room, the hotel is located across the street from Central Station in Amsterdam making exploration of the city and surrounding are by feet, bike, trams and trains easy. I stayed for 8 days and had an amazing time. I think the desk person's name was Amber and thank her very much.

Room Tip: I was on a lower floor so you have some noise from the busy area at the edge of the redlight distric...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I don´t think this hotel is worthy of 5 stars. Despite the fact that the service was excellent, the staff very helpfull and being in the very center, we had some complications and other opinions. First, the bedrooms look very old (and they are) comparing the looks of the reception and its surroundings on the first floor. Second, our badroom pipes, the sink and bath tub were stuck and we had to change the bedroom for what we asked a free breakfast and they agreed. Third, in a previous mail asking for the price of breakfast they told us 19,50€ and at the time of the check out they told us that it was 26€. They said that if booked in advance it was the first price and if not, the second. But that was not specified in the mail, so we got the 19.50 price.

Sumarry. For the rooms that they have it is not worthy the price, but if what you are looking for is location and service, this might be for you.
The breakfast is good and varied.

Loved this place. Close to Central station. Excellant staff. Given choice of area within hotel ie: street or internal. Was warned as we were street level could be noisy but we did not find this was the case. Very clean in all area's. Will stay here again

There is no doubting the location of this hotel will probably make up for the fact that the rooms are a bit tired and in need of a make over. Its not to say they are untidy, mine was clean and was kept that way by the hotel but the decor, furniture, TV (not a flatscreen) etc are all from the 90's. If the hotel was advertised as a 3.5* to 4* it would have been more accurate.

If you get a good deal, it would be worth staying at this hotel. The staff are great, its in the middle of everything and you probably wont be spending that much time in your room anyway.

We stayed at Amsterdam for just one night and my husband got me the night at this hotel as a valentine's day present. At the time, I admit, I though it was dispensable, such a fancy hotel, we were only there for one night and were more into enjoying Amsterdam's night, but I was proven wrong as soon as I walked in fresh from central station just across the street. The place is magnificently located and it's such a beautiful building. We accepted a larger room in the front of the building on a dare, since the worried receptionist told us it might be a bit noisier, being so close to the street, but it wasn't noisy at all. The room was large and clean, the king bed was comfortable and it was great to check out the busy street just out the window. I was very sorry to leave, I would like to have been able to be there longer.

Room was not cleaned properly, there was food in the mini-bar from the previous guest. Beds are old and uncomfortable and room service extremely slow.
Internet is slow and coverage in some rooms is quite poor.
If you get an exterior room it's too noisy so difficult to sleep.
TVs in the rooms are in general too old (CRT)
Rest is just OKish
