An average hotel in a great part of the city, thats all I have to say. Our room was simple, clean and did the job. Since we barely spent anytime there it was fine. We got the superior room which i assume is somewhat bigger then the regular room. For 2 people it was perfect. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel. There are some great restaurants and bars right on the block so you do not have far to go. Overall I would stay here again...the only bumber was we had no view. Since we booked through expedia I am assuming we get the crappy views and people that book through them directly get the nice canal views. Overall 4 stars for location and 3 stars for hotel

Stayed September 2013, traveled as a couple

The hotel has a great location for a stay in Amsterdam! Nice and good service for business and pleasure. Very quiet with a good night sleep ready for the next day. Good breakfast that suites me for a great start from the morning!

A surprisingly good hotel for the price and the location.
Small clean room, great view from the fifth floor and great service at reception. Nh concept is to provide small semi-luxurious room for a good price. And they do it well.
Not a no-frill hotel: the rooms are perfectly comparable to more luxury chains except the size.
Wifi is not great (even the paying one), no personal iron (but a ironing room) were the only downsides for a business stay.
Will go back there again for holidays.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The room was tiny, probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in. Walking in felt like a prison sentence. The bed was only a twin with one small pillow and although the room had windows, they were too high to see out of. There were exposed pipes along the wall and the paper was peeling. The bathroom products were substandard and the bathroom itself was quite dated. No air conditioning and with the window open, it was quite noisy.

The staff was very condescending and seemed almost glad to say things weren't available. They were also woefully uninformed, not even knowing where to get a late evening meal (two doors down). When I asked how to get to an area for shopping, the desk person didn't know saying she was only a trainee. A trainee at the desk by herself?? Still better than when I came down one evening and there was no one at the desk. Even the cleaning staff looked like they were in on the joke. Terrible terrible service.

The Internet connection was extremely slow and made it near impossible to do work.


The hotel was very pricey -- not worth the money at all.

NH City Center is a located in a great part of town, 5 minutes to Dam Square and 5 minutes to Jordaan on foot. It was a quiet hotel in the middle of everything. Our room was small but functional. The only downside to the rooms was the smell of cigarette smoke that sometime wafted into the room from smoking rooms. The staff did a great job in accommodating me and my company needs - in terms of booking rooms, switching credit cards etc. In addition, I had to change hotels one night - they agreed to hold my luggage. Note that the wifi is slow for anything other than minor web browsing - document sharing, video conference sessions etc, was impossible - even with the paid hotel wifi service.

Wow this was not at all what I expected. Not sure what part of the hotel other reviewers stayed in but this was actually one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. First off NO AIR-CONDITIONING !!! We were on fourth floor, when we got out of elevator started getting worried,hallways had that out dated look and smell. Opened room door and yea, not good. Did not have a clean feel. Our view of Amsterdam was of a wall. Bathroom door would not stay open so had to prop open because it was SO hot and uncomfortable. This was when the outside temp was only in the 70s,Can not imagine in the hot months. We had to ask for a fan because we could not get any sleep with no air. The in room coffee was a electric tea kettle and packets of instant coffee and powdered creamer. Towels rough and felt dirty. Usually have great luck, do my research but this one did not pan out. The location only good thing to say.

This NH hotel is in a great location for any one visiting Amsterdam and wish for a central location for a walk about or using other forms of transportation to experience the city..
The morning breakfast service was excellent and provided a good selection.
