“We'll Be Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Retured a few days ago from three memorable nights at this hotel. Was lucky enough to be able to book long enough in advance to get a junior suite at a terrific price. It is not enormous by any stretch of the imagination but it is beautifully designed with floor to ceiling windows, overlooking the canal, that give it the illusion of space. Others have mentioned the iMac provided and they are indeed incredibly useful (we had one in the bedroom and living area), however, I was most impressed by the coffee machine! While others have stated that only paper cups were provided, we had both ceramic cups and take-away cartons - perfect!

The suits and executive rooms all come with executive lounge access - a wonderful bonus. The breakfast menu is not extensive but adequate enough for a quick bit to eat before you go sightseeing. However, it was lovely to be able to relax over a glass (or two!) of wine with a surprisingly good selection of snacks, before going out in the evening. The only issue is that it gets extremely busy at weekends and you may find yourself having to sit in the Lobby Bar instead (this happened on both the Saturday morning and evening), but it really isn't much of a problem (although we heard a couple of business men complaining loudly about this!).

I had booked this hotel as a surprise break for my husband's 40th birthday and couldn't be happier with my choice. The staff made our stay an absolute pleasure. We had barely booked into our suite when Room Service came with complementary wine and a special giant birthday cookie! These things don't cost the earth but the thoughtfulness creates such a good impression. Any thing else we requested - room service, a sewing kit, was provided quickly and cheerfully. Without exception, the staff were professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

As others have stated, the Sky Lounge is a must. A quick drink to unwind when you return to the hotel at night is the perfect end to the evening. Yes, it's not cheap but how often to get to enjoy a glass of wine while taking in spectacular views. I have to admit, the music was much too techno for my tastes but let's face it, a 40 year old couple are not going to be their target market!

The hotel is undoubtedly the perfect spot for sightseeing. It is worth buying a 48/72 hour pass for the transport system. You can jump on and off the buses, trams and metro as much as you want within this period. We found everything to be no more than a quick tram ride away and getting back couldn't be simpler as you can jump on anything with a 'Centraal Station' sign. We never waited for more than 5 minutes for a tram.

A great hotel, in a great position. What more could you want??

The hotel was situated in a very good location, 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station, perfect place if you are looking to catch the early morning trains to other cities.
Check-in staff were great, offering us warm cookies and always friendly whenever we had queries.
Room was modern and of an acceptable size with an Apple computer doubling as a TV. We stayed in an Executive room which gave us access to the lounge for free breakfast every morning and free snacks every night, which we made use of fully.
The only downside to the hotel was the seemingly inconsistent temperature of the water. One minute it was warm while showering, the other minute the water became much colder.
Other than the minor hiccup, the hotel was great. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel in the area!

My wife and I stayed here in the winter of 2012 and loved our stay. The location is amazing and gives you access to all of Amsterdam. The rooms are spacioucs and comfortable and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is tasty and the rooftop bar gives some of the best views of a beautiful city. I would stay at this hotel over and over again.

Room Tip: Ask for a bigger, higher or room with a view and if they are available the staff will likely oblige.

Good location if you choose to travel by rail in Netherlands. Not far from city center, but trains going around can be quite noisy if you are not used to it. Fresh look of the hotel, nice and helpful staff. Hotel sky bar is worth visiting, but reservations are must.

Room Tip: Ask for the room neading towards the city centre. It is definitely less noisy than the ones heading...

Room was quiet and confortable and the staff is very gentle. Centrall station (Metro, Train, Tram, buses) is very near to hotel, only 5 minutes walk and you can go everywhere you want. Cocktails and drinks are quiet expensive on the skylounge and city cafe. Nice view over city on the Skylounge bar.

We were here for four nights.
Trained in from the airport, four minute walk from centraal station. Hotel gifted us warm walnut choc chip cookies upon check in, everything about the staff was warm and efficient despite there being a large biz group in the hotel.
Room was decent in size, clean with Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries. Having the Starbucks downstairs was great because of the chilly weather. We rented a scooter but there is great food and sights nearby within walking distance! Thumbs up if you don't mind a modern styled hotel for your stay at the Dam.
