“Good staff. Property issues”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Our room. STARS had a shower that did not drain. We reported it and were gone all day. Returned at 6 and were told the repair person was still to come. We were promised another rooom If it wasnt fixed but now are told they are full.

Also the roof leaked during a rainy night and things got wet...luckily nothing major.

we will update with the eventual resolution.

Room Tip: Not the star room.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stayed there about 8 years ago.
Our first trip together .
I had very nice memories .
I loved the rooms decorated in memory of on famous philosophers !
But now, because I traveled alone, they gave me a single room. Very small , no comfort what so ever. outdated !
The bathroom was small but clean,
the service O.K.
breakfast, not included in price . I do not call that breakfast, no friendly lady , the toaster did not work, dried out scrambled eggs ...etc...
I will not return again

Room Tip: Quit area, close to the tram stop & the Vondel park .

Average, basic hotel. Good location and a very short walk from the tram stop. Stuff are friendly and helpful. Bathrooms a bit too small (and I don't usually care about the size), but clean. A bit outdated and oldish, but no "old" smell. I'd stay here again - I think it's reasonably priced for what it is.

We stayed here for 4 nights in September. Hotel is located in the Overtoom area very close to the city centre via tram/bus.
The room itself was rather strange, but clean and fine for four nights. It was strange having large cushions instead of pillows to sleep on and there was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room (bit of a downside) so we brought a kettle and teabags with us.

The bathroom was great with a powerful shower, large mirror and plenty of clean towels!
The bedroom was a bit hit and miss with greeney blue painted walls, old antique furniture and a canvas with a philosophical quote that looked a bit tacky. The tv was very small, but had a lot of channels to choose from and as you spend all day out and about it's hardly an issue!

The receptionist was lovely. A very friendly lady who helped us find the places we wanted to visit with the map that they hand out to guests. She also let me call home with the reception phone as my phone did not receive signal. She is a credit to the hotel and made us feel very welcome.

Overall a sweet little hotel away from the hustle and bustle.

room in tall basement was reasonably clean but smelled slightly of basement - bed too soft for my taste - bathroom clean and new. wouldnt use again. But very well located for a walk in the park or to central amsterdam.

This hotel is very quant and quiet, near a park which was beautiful and near tram line. Yet if you are a big and/or tall person, I'll warn you that the room is small and shower in our room on the top floor is newly renovated but tiny!

Just perfect. We were greeted ever so friendly and they really went out of their way to make it a pleasant stay. We even got a surprise or two and we had something to celebrate! ;-) The location is wonderful, pretty central, but without all the noise
