“Good hotel, close to railway station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

This hotel is situated only a 5 minutes walk from Central station and very easy to find. My room was rather small, but clean and quite ok, the same with the bathroom. The breakfast was very impressive, with sausages, scrambled and boiled eggs, all kinds of bread and cereals. There were also a good choice of fresh fruit and cereals. The staff was friendly and service minded, even if there was quite a line when I arrived, so I gave up and checked in only after my meeting. I also think that check in time at 15.00 is too late!

As I were on a business trip, I did not get to see much of Amsterdam, but I don't think I would have chosen it if I were to go there as a tourist. It seemed to me to be a bit too far from the interesting sights in city centre (except for those especially interested in the red light district!). But as a business hotel it definitely met my expectations.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us, it is greatly appreciated!

I am sorry to hear there was a queue when checking-in. We do everything possible to limited the waiting time, but we can never completely prevent unexpected peeks. Our check-in and check-out times are representative for the timing you will find in most hotels, and are based upon a morning check out of by latest 12:00u, which leaves us 3 hours to clean all rooms ready for check in at 15:00u. We do offer a priority cleaning service at EUR 40 for early arrival and for guests arriving really early we generaly advise to book the room the night in advance. The latter would really apply if you were to arrive i.e. at 9 AM

Furthermore, I would like to thank you for your positive feedback! I am happy to hear you enjoyed our location and room. It is also very good to read you enjoyed our friendly staff and breakfast buffet.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again in the near future,
Caroline

Excellent hotel, very close to the town centre, but no too close to be noisy - although rooms under the bar can be noisy. Very flexible on late check out, helpful hotel staff (lent us an umbrella when raining) and appreciated the warm cookies on arrival and free bottles of water in reception. Would definitely stay there again.

Coffee for four mid afternoon. Great views & the handmade chocolate & biscuits were a nice touch. 4 Euros & well worth it but the service was slow & Lea the waitress got the order wrong, didn't bring the extra milk asked for & wasn't very jolly. They weren't too busy so not sure how the service would be if they were. Worth a visit overall.

Thank you for your feedback. It is good to hear that you enjoyed our SkyLounge and the spectacular view! I am sorry to hear that you were not completely pleased with the service. We know Lea as a very helpful and hospitable person. I will investigate what might went wrong that day. I hope to welcome you back again in the future! Caroline

Excellent service & location. Good base for exploring Amsterdam. Breakfast was the best I ever had in a Hotel. Our room was lovely - fantastic view. Room was situated over Centraal Station, we didn't find noise an issue at all.
Would definitely stay here if in Amsterdam again.

Stayed at this hotel with friends for a long weekend and was impressed with the location. Light and airy reception, friendly staff and the delicious warm chocolate cookie on arrival brightened up the rainy day. Rooms not bad size and nicely done although a city view would be preferable to train tracks in the standard accommodation. Amazing views from the sky bar but unsurprisingly pricy drinks. Only negative was checking in and out- obviously not enough staff to deal with the number of guests which meant long waits and even longer queues.

I do apologize for the queue upon check-in and out. We do everything possible to minimize the waiting time, but unfortunately can never completely prevent unexpected peeks. I am confident upon a future stay, you will have a different experience.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I will pass along your nice comments to the entire team! We are looking forward to your next visit.

Stayed here for a weekend back in July, great location just 10mins walk from the station on the quieter side.... 5mins walk to the hustle and bustle. Rooms are fantastic, bright and airy with floor to ceiling windows, comfortable beds, tv, hair dryer etc etc... Reception was very busy on check in and departure but expected at busy times.... Bar was great service, breakfast was so much to choose from. Highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return.
The sky bar is fab, a little pricey but it keeps out the riff raff so definitely worth it... Especially on a lovely sunny day, it's worth having a drink to sit outside and look over the beautiful city.

Room Tip: High floor, overlooking canal
