“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We visited Amsterdam with our two sons for three nights recently and this was our first stay in the Mercure. The staff were extremely professional, friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel is in a very quiet and attractive part of the city. Breakfast was excellent and hiring bikes from the hotel very easy and highly recommended. While our sons shared a reasonably sized room unfortunately my wife and I shared what I can only describe as probably the smallest hotel room we have ever experienced ! Otherwise we would highly recommend this hotel for location and service.

Room Tip: Check the size of the room first

Not in the immediate center of Amsterdam, but 10 minutes walking distance from the Munt tower/flower market. The hotel is situated in between little streets and beautifully decorated, your room will surprise you, really it's not one of those standard hotel rooms, good taste. You think in between little street, noise...no, nothing we got a very quiet room, slept wonderfully on the firm beds and great pillows.
You can easily reach it with a lot of trams going down the Vijzelgracht, from there it's a 3 minute walk to the hotel.
Last but not least the internet is free and very very fast! You sometimes have those hotels that give you an internet connection for free and a paid option if you want to surf faster, not here, you straight get the fast one for free!!

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet room, they're all very nicely decorated!

The location of this hotel is perfect: you can easily reach any point of Amsterdam, while leaving from this place. The customer experience is excellent, here: the staff left me with a very good impression. the rooms are quite big and the beds are very comfortable. The food is very tasty. I will definitely come back here.

Easy to reach from the Central train station via the Metro. Once you have found your bearings most tourist areas are within an easy walk. 5 minutes to the Rijks museum, 15 minutes to Ann Franks House and a similar walk to the centre. There are restaurants and places for breakfast within a couple of minutes.
We booked a standard room which while small felt bigger thanks to the very high ceilings. It came with a shower only. It was fine for our needs and very clean. As usual we booked well in advance and got a much better price. 3 nights at only a fraction more than the walk in price for 1 night.
I've had more comfortable beds, newer towels and quieter doors (other reviewers are correct they close with a slam so if you are a light sleeper be warned)! However, I would stay again and if you are happy with the brand you will know what to expect.

The hotel is great, rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. We were even upgraded to a better room because we were on our honeymoon! The staff was wonderful and helpful but the location is not the best. The area is residential, so it´s super quiet and very nice to walk around, but it´s far from the main tourist spots and dining aeras, so you end up taking taxis all the time of walking a lot to get back to the hotel. We are a young couple that loves walking around the cities, but unfortunately we think this hotel is unconveniently located for that purpose.

I loved this hotel! Situated on a quiet street about 5 minutes from the main road and tram stop, it is quiet and cosy. The staff are friendly and helpful! I absolutely adore the complimentary use of the Nespresso machine at the lobby until 10 am! A real wake-up drink!

The room we stayed in was an upgraded room I think (we are Accor members) so it had its own nespresso machine too! The bed was big and really comfortable!

Another plus was the sumptuous breakfast! Plenty of cold cuts and hearty breads! Coffee and many kinds of tea plus freshly-squeezed orange juice right in front of your eyes!

There are many good restaurants and eateries near the hotel. I had horse meat steak at a little restaurant on the street leading to the hotel! From the outside, it didn't look like many people were at the restaurant but inside, it was a cosy little place and the proprietor was very friendly and offered an english menu seeing as we were not able to speak Dutch.

There's also a wonderful supermarket, Albert Hejn (spelled something like that) about 10 minutes walk away.

The only downside of the hotel is that the shower area in the bathroom doesn't have a door or a dividing partition so it can get kind of wet. The plumbing was a little noisy too if you didn't adjust the flush button just right!

I would love to go back again! I miss you Amsterdam!
