“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for my 23rd birthday and had a lovely stay. All the staff was more than helpful, the hotel lovely and in perfect location. They gave me a free drink at the bar for my birthday and let us keep our bag behind on the last day until our flight at no extra charge. I would defiantly recommend this hotel if you visit Amsterdam.

I stayed here on my own and had a great time.
The girls on the front desk were so friendly! My room was sumptuous decorated in purple, thick carpet and great views of the canal.
The coffee machine was a real bonus!
My room was warm and the bed so comfortable.
The location is right on the canal and 10 mins from the train station. In a very safe area especially if you are on your own.
I will come back to stay next time I am in the country.

We chose this hotel from Trip Adviser recommendations for our first time in Amsterdam and were not disappointed.

It was well located, around a ten minute walk along the canals from our drop-off point at the central station. We liked the fact that the hotel frontage looks like one of very smart canalside townhouses, with very discreet hotel signage. Inside the decor is very stylish, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff who were able to admit us to our room early. When we returned from our walk later it was unfortunate that our ceiling had sprung a leak from the roof, but the staff immediately sprung into action, changing us into a larger upgraded canalside room. They also gave us a free breakfast, thus we give them top marks for service and problem-solving.
The upgraded room was very comfortable, although you had to watch your head on the beams. It included a great sitting area over looking the canal. Downstairs we loved the cosy bar area and the breakfast offering.

It felt like a personalised operation with a good group of people looking after us, individual thoughtful emails in advance of our stay and friendly bar and reception staff.

This place is tucked away on Kaizersgracht (very quiet) and is close to the restaurants and shops of the Jordaan area. Our canal-facing room gave us a great view. The hotel's breakfast was simple, but good. All staff were attentive and helpful. Our TV didn't work, but that is the only real mark against this place. We definitely recommend this hotel.

This boutique style hotel was great! I would recommend to anyone who visits Amsterdam. It's in a great location, with a 5 minute walk to Dam square. The staff were all lovely, friendly and very helpful. They also left you alone, where I find some hotels constantly bothering you with calls to your room. The rooms were nice and had everything you require, including mini bar, free wifi, coffee machine and English channels on the tele (movies, music, news). The large double bed has 2 separate single duvets for you and your partner, so it would be nice to have 1 large duvet between you.. BUT some couples might prefer that ;) The rooms were cleaned everyday, and fresh clean towels were given everyday also. The hot breakfast was delicious, offering a full English as well as cold bits and cereal. I would definitely visit this hotel the next time I return to Amsterdam. Worth every penny!
Little note: Its cheaper to book on their actual website directly than the prices offered on trip advisor...
