“Excellent location, small room, super comfy bed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

This is an unusual hotel, with art installations in the hallway and rooms. It is in a newly renovated but old building, so the shape of rooms differs. The bathroom had no shower stall, just a shower head in the corner - but it worked surprisingly well. The staff were very helpful with whatever we needed. We got an upgrade to a three star room, perhaps because we arrived quite late - although it was still quite a small room. The bed was fantastic though, slept very well.

The location is really great - three minute walk from the main train station, close to Dam Square and the Red Light District, but quiet.

This is an excellent hotel for couples, and if you'll only be spending a bit of time in the hotel. Not so good for families, or if you want to lounge about in the hotel.

Room Tip: Higher stars are bigger rooms, but all are nice.

I was a bit worried when we finally found the small little entrance and reception area. But the hotel is truly tres chic. Very modern and stylish. I had never seen a shower/toilet but it was super fun for a road trip.

Such a good concept. No hassle, comfy beds, wifi, nice simple decor and helpful staff.

If you're planning in staying in your room all day it wouldn't be ideal. But for sleep and a couple of breaks during the day it's perfect.

Would like to see more budget boutique hotels like this around Europe.

Dont stay here if you want large rooms, huge bathrooms, balconies, or large spaces to lounge around indoors. This is NOT your place. However, if you are in Amsterdam for the right reasons and lust to be outside soaking it all in, you will not mind the small rooms, and tight quarters. The hotel is well laid out, thoughtful, and down right crafty. Incredible location, to just about everything. Rates are fair. We were very suprised at how cool this place was for our stay. If you are a couple or single, stay here, you'll love it!

Room Tip: Spice it up, get a room that overlooks the street!

First of all: it's all about the location. At the hart of the city near the central station, red light district, one of the gay areas. Every room is different. Our first room was like a boudoir. I liked it as it was very cosy but my partner found it too small. Just went over the reception. There were some empty rooms. They gave us the keys of several rooms and could pick one we liked. Of course we had to pay something extra as the room was bigger. Excellent place to stay!
