This hotel was clean and GREAT location. But what was represented as a deluxe for 2 people may have been fine for a couple but not for 2 singles. There is no bathroom privacy, just a little frosted glass. Bathroom is glass, door doesn't close. In all the other rooms we stayed in, the twin beds could be separated for singles, but in this hotel they were on a platform. The room was small.

Dear Patricia,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor. I am happy to read your positive comments regarding location and the clean rooms. Concerning your comments of the glass bathroom wall, I would like to point out that we have rooms with a solid wall as well. For your next visit we will make sure you can stay in one of these rooms as I understand your feeling in this situation.

Kindest regards,

I was worried about the glass bathroom. But it wasn't a problem at all. I will definitily come back here again and i'll stay longer. The rooms are small but hey, you're not there to stay in the room. You really only sleep there and the rooms are very cool looking. Location location!!! A hop skip and quick jump to Baba's and all your shopping needs. The local market is on the same side of the street and way cheaper for drinks than the little shops around town. 2.39 euro for a huge redbull but in the small shops they are almost 5 Euros. I love that after hours you need your key card to get into the hotel, and you can't use the lifts with out a key card 24/7. It really feels safe at this hotel. The front desk is friendly and helpful. Big thumbs up to the hotel snd our Friend who booked is this little Gem.

Grossly overpriced, Looks like a Hostel on the inside and the room was a size of a closet! Reception stuff was incurious and annoyed if you had more than two questions.
Really disappointed for that high Price per night!

Situated in a very busy part of the city but conveniently placed for walking to all major attractions. Rooms very small but this wasn't a problem as we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. Very clean and contemporary in style. Bed is a small double but soooo comfortable. Breakfast which was included was ample, fresh and tasty . There are just a few red light windows near the hotel but didn't bother us. All of the staff were helpful and pleasant and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel. How ever I would say that this is probably not the destination for you if you are prudish.
All in all for the price paid and in comparison to other hotels of the same calibre it was a good choice of hotel.

Room Tip: Front of the building my be a little noisier due to the tram lines, rear of the hotel overlooks a co...

The location of this hotel is perfect. Walking distance to all the main attractions and the old part of Amsterdam.
We were nicely welcomed by the reception staff at arrival. Later on they helped us finding good restauratns, tickes for canal boat trip , getting taxies ..... Everething we asked for was provided quick and always with a smile and a good sense of humour.
The rooms are small - but clean and nice.
The breakfast was great !
I will highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Amsterdam - and we will certainly use it again if we ever get back to this lovely city.
Thanks a lot to the staff that made this Amsterdam tour so nice .
best regards
Vidar and friens from Norway

Room Tip: We stayed at room 415 and 419 - which had the windows to the backyard . Quet and good for sleeping
