“Favorite hotel ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

It's amazing what a little service can do to make your stay amazing! I accidentally booked a room in the basement which would be fine for most, (the room was amazing itself!) but I really need natural light in the morning because I suffer from depression. The hotel not only offered me a new room the second day but also comped my breakfast after I showed them the description of what I had booked-- which was supposed to have a window and view. They really care about you getting what you expect and being happy. Especially Andre, who did a little endzone dance when I told him I slept really well the second night. Also, Thomas, the afternoon concierge is also great and deserves a raise. He is simultaneously at your service and a perpetual student, wanting only to get it right, whether it's a phrase in your native language or the practicalities of your reservation.

The amenities are also top rate. The wifi is free, reliable, and you can have as many devices as you want. The breakfast is a little pricey, but worth it, especially if you order fresh Dutch pancakes and sit outside in the garden. Oh, and the bathrooms are sublime. I've never taken as many bubble baths as I did at this hotel because of their gorgeous deep jacuzzi tubs with built-in TV's! The only thing is that if you're under 5'8", like most women in the world, then be prepared to only see the very top of your head in the bathroom mirrors. I'm 5'3" and I couldn't even see my eyes. Those dang, gorgeous, tall Dutch people! They should cut the rest of us some slack and put in some mirror extensions for us dumpier folks. ;) Otherwise, this hotel was perfection.

Room Tip: Guests should know that this hotel has rooms in the basement, which is not super clear on their webs...

Brilliant hotel. Rooms are clean, well furnished and equipped, kettle, (always good for the English abroad!) comfy bed, good air con and so quiet. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast was delicious, eat as much as you want, continental or cooked. Hotel is in a quiet, quite posh part of the city but within very easy walking distance of all the shops, restaurants and all the tourist sites, we walked everywhere and saw all we wanted to see. Not our usual type of hotel but so glad we stayed here it really made our holiday great.

Very conveniently located close to the museum area, rooms are pretty, clean, large and well furnished. We spent one night in Amsterdam and enjoyed the stay a lot. The staff is young and caring. I strongly recomend it expecially rooms on the upper floors.

This is not Canal House, let's make sure that this is clear. However, the value is very good here. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and really go the extra mile to help you--and it seems genuine. The location is actually excellent--a welcome break from the crowds in the canal belt, yet just a few minutes away from the city center by tram (which stops 1 block from the hotel). Also, 1 block from Museumplein. Great garden in back. The price is excellent for Amsterdam. Recommended!

This is a find! Wonderful staff. Very cozy on a quiet street one block from Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh. All the tourist pleasures are here -- canal boats, bars, high end shopping -- but it's one block away down a quiet street. Honor bar offers beer, wine, cheese and desserts. Best place I've stayed in Amsterdam -- wish i could clone this in Paris and new York! Very comfortable staying here as a solo woman traveler

The initial impression is of a very stylish hotel with helpful staff.
The room we had was similarly impressive with TV to watch from the Jacuzzi bath, decent sized shower and a balcony.
The hotel is excellently located for the museums and local park and has a good selection of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. It is also very close to tram stops to take you into the central areas in the city, railway station and close to the bus for the airport.
We would definitely return to the hotel and would certainly recommend it to friends

This hotel is as good, if not better than alot of hotels we have stayed in. the staff were so helpful, the location is perfect, right in the meusum area, a short walk to the tram stop and only 5min walk to the main bar and eating area. My wife doesnt drink milk and they even went out and bought soya milk for her. The room was very large and spotless clean, the room was quite and you could hear any of the other guest. Well recommened and thanks to the staff again.

Room Tip: Pay the upgrade for the Dueluz suite, so worth it.
