“What a nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

As with most of central Amsterdam it's a little pricey but it's quiet, central and the "fill yer boots" breakfasts see you in good stead for a full days sightseeing. Everything within walking distance as well. Recommended.

Nice hotel in a terrific location next to canal in Jordaan area. Easy walk from the main station and close to restaurants and shops. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend the hotel with its purple, decadent decor although it's a bit pricey for a smallish double room. However, the location makes up for this as the area is safe, quiet and pretty with all the main attractions within easy reach, either walking or by tram.

I have no complaints about this hotel. The room was clean, staff friendly and location good but I had stayed in another hotel a few days prior which was cheaper and nicer in my opinion. Amsterdam is so small that it is easy to walk everywhere so location was not an issue. The rooms are a hoot and quite eclectic. They are a little small but nothing outside the norm for Europe. If you arrive late at night, as we did, don't be surprised if you find it a little hard to find as the only thing distinguishing it from the only canal houses is small print in the window.

Very easy to find, an easy walk from the station. Lovely canal position and within easy reach of Anne Frank's museum and quiet at night. Very welcoming staff who sent restaurant suggestions in advance and made reservations for us.The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom, whilst small, had nice products. Nice bar and excellent breakfast- really good value for City Centre

Room Tip: Worth paying a bit extra for the canal view.

I chose this hotel during a recent stay in Amsterdam based on recommendations from locals (rather than those recommended by the conference) and am so glad I did! The small hotel is located in a very central and scenic part of Amsterdam, about 2 blocks from the Anne Frank house and on a canal. You can walk many places from here or easily catch a bus/tram or canal ride; I felt very safe walking there both during day and night. The hotel is very reasonably priced for Amsterdam. Rooms are very small but clean, with great showers (warm, good water pressure! - very important) and a very comfortable bed. Wi-fi was included. The best part, however, was the customer service. Staff members were extremely friendly and took time to answer any questions I had and even went out of their way to help me when I misplaced my adapter. Not a large lobby, but they do have a small bar/restaurant. I would definitely welcome staying here again the next time I am in Amsterdam. I would highly recommend this hotel unless you need full amenities such as a swimming pool and fitness center.
