“Excellent value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great location (between Dam square and Rembrandt plaza), great service, and very nice rooms. Suitable for any purpose of staying in Amsterdam, this humble hotel will serve all your needs. Very nice bathrooms…

Always have a good stay at the NH City Centre. Have stayed there four times. Staff friendly and courteous. Location is perfect for shops and plazas, and only a walk to the Vondelpark or in the other direction to Dam Square.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We spend 3 days here and the room is small and ours was very oddly shaped. The "green" lighting is very dark for reading or writing. Canal view was charming and breakfast had plenty of food and variety for even picky eaters. Reception staff was very knowledgeable about Amsterdam and getting around. Great location for restaurants. Surprising how crowded Amsterdam tourist sights were in October on Monday and Tuesday. House of Bols was a standout experience!

Room Tip: Try for a canal view.

The hotel was very well placed for our needs. Room clean but the view wasn't, the back of the hotel was disappointing. The breakfast was good plenty of choice but the hot food was cold. The service in the restaurant was excellent. The main downside of this hotel for me is that there was no bar, no place to purchase a cup of coffee, it did have these facilities close by but it would have been nice to relax in the hotel

The hotel is very well located, central, close to many restaurants, the rooms are very small, if you have heavy luggage, you cannot turn around the bed! the doors although being thick and heavy, don’t stop the hallway noises! the bathroom is correct, and the breakfast very expensive (20 €), but very good. The reception staff is uneven, the free internet malfunctioning ... I'm sure it’s possible to find a better place in Amsterdam.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I stayed in this large hotel for 3 nights as part of a city break with a friend. The location is pretty ideal, with a few minutes walk to Dam Square, the Flower Market and located between a main tram route and the Singel Canal. A five minute tram ride from Central Station. There are many bars and restaurants very near by.

Our standard twin room was on the fifth floor and much smaller than you will see on their advertising photos. I guess this is pretty much par for the course in European centres, but my biggest complaint about the room and the hotel as a whole was that it was so dark - low energy light bulbs which barely lit the room and dark coloured fabrics, paint and decorations everywhere. Having said this the single bed was extremely comfortable. Wardrobe space was tiny but in all honesty it would be difficult to fit anything bigger into the room. There was a free large safe in the room with a powerpoint inside to charge the phone and a minibar and TV which could receive BBC1 and 2 and the BBC News channel - which is a bonus as many European hotels don't provide this - even though many of their visitors are from the UK and do not want to watch CNN as their only source of English speaking TV. The bathroom was again smallish but adequate and a surprisingly large shower with ample hot water.

The view from the window looked inwards across a small closed in area, looking directly into other rooms opposite - so the nets needed to be drawn all the time, adding to the dark feel.

We didn't have breakfast as we thought 20 euros was a bit steep and all the local bars did breakfast - we paid 13 euros 2 minute walk away for eggs, cheese, croissant, toast roll, coffee and orange juice.

Reception were efficient, helpful and ordered us a taxi to the airport (48 euros) as we overslept!

All in all I would recommend this hotel as a worry free place to stay - clean efficient but it was a bit soulless and quite dark everywhere - if you want somewhere with more character do not choose this, but hey - you are in Amsterdam and you're not going to spend much time in a hotel as there is so much to see out there. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an external view.

Just spent 4 days staying at this hotel. Excellent cleanliness, service and good positioning for all city attractions. Good idea to book the breakfast in advance as there is then a considerable saving.

Only 1 suggestion - find your own taxi as they use a private company and the cost is considerably more.
