“Great for a few days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Booked this via trip adviser and expedia. The hotel is very clean and down a side street with the only noise being the kindergarten opposite. Good breakfast buffet, hot, cold and fresh. Very pleasant staff and quiet bar. 15 minutes to Dam square so fairly central. Tram stop a couple of minutes.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with friends

We stayed for 4 nights in October and on arriving late we were upgraded to a superior room on the second floor. It was everything we needed for a whistle stop tour of Amsterdam. The room was clean & the service was faultless. My ownly gripe was breakfast, the selection wasn't great but I think that was only due to arriving at the end of service.

We stayed here for on night in November. The parking area was very small and only 5 cars could park at the same time, and let me tell you that they charge you 45 euros a night which was abnormally high for the place. we found a parking place in the alley which charged 36 euros. The room was also terrible, I mean the bathroom was really dirty when we got there and I am sure they didn't clean it up for us, also the towels were not clean! We also had a very simple breakfast, and I could not find more than one type of cheese in the buffet. Suppose that you go to Amsterdam and you find only one type of cheese in the breakfast, how come is that possible? I have to tell that the sleep quality was fine, and fortunately internet was included too. The location was not so bad, but it was almost a 30-minute walk to the Dam Square.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time to write us your findings. We were sorry to read that you had some remarks. We will certainly sort out what wrong in your bathroom. Concerning the parking : Amsterdam has, as a small capital with many canals, not many parking space. We have 12 parking spaces (6 inside + 6 outside) which we rent for our guests. Therefore we can not offer them for free, unfortunately.

This hotel is well situated: 10 mins from Rembrandtsplein, 15 from the Dam, 15 from Leidsplein and museum district. If you don't know Amsterdam, don't try to go anywhere near the "Center" which is let down by Amsterdammers for "the dirty tourists". the location then is really worse the price.
However a couple a point strucked me in a negative way:
1. Carpet was very dirty and itching the feet. Which give me some concerns about the general cleanliness of this hotel.
2. Very low ceilings on the 3rd floor
3. Tiny rooms/Bathroom
4. We were freezing during the night because the heater is behind the curtain

Room Tip: Do not go to the 3rd floor.

The only people who seem unhappy witht this hotel are the unlucky ones that got a room on the 3rd floor. We had a triple room on the 2nd, and it was very spacious. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful and the hotel was all very clean. We paid £240 for a triple room for 3 nights, so I think we got a bargain. Excellent location: quiet, but near town. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is spacious

Stayed 3 nights. Great location in terms of cafes and restaurants. Breakfast was good. Fresh orange juice was great. The tea & coffee set in the room is very handy. Free newspaper was a surprise.

The room (privilege) is spacious and ceiling is very high. Although it's on the ground level literally, so no windows can be open. It's a pity.... Also all the noises from the street (garbage truck) are a little nuisance. Carpet needs some serious wash or a change.
