“for a first trip to Amsterdam, and a great location I highly recommend this hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I stayed at Westcord for the second half of my stay in amsterdam. The staff was amazing! Very friendly and helpful with recommendations on nearby places to eat and bars. My hotel for the first half of the trip didnt have complimentary internet, so I really appreciated this at WestCord. There is a tram stop literally in front of the hotel, which I actually didnt use that often because most things are walking distance away (Dam Square, RLD, Central Station, Anne Frank House, Jordaan neighborhood).

Overall I spent a lot of my nights in Leidseplein watching World cup and this hotel was a little bit of a far walk back late at night. So I would most likely stay near that neighborhood next time.

Great late night eats across the street (a bakery, burger place, and shopping)

Dear Fire9d,

Thank you so much for this helpful review. Besides the tram tracks located in front of the hotel, there is a bicycle rental we work with; it's a very local and pure way to experience the city; as our city is not too big you are at Leidscheplein within 10 minutes, so maybe that is an option for your next stay!

In case you would like to receive more information, please contact me at lotte.dijkmansvangunst@westcordhotels.nl

Warm regards,

Lotte Dijkmans van Gunst

Very friendly staff, not always up to the situation. We had booked two rooms, for three persons and the single person got the biggest room. The beds are too much on the soft side for our liking, but we survived four nights, not without some back pain.
The breakfast was good and the restaurant staff, was very friendly. Will also say that the hotel is well kept and clean.
One last recommendation, if you need a taxi, have the hotel to book one for you. This ensures you a proper taxi, and you will also get a driver who knows his town and can speak English.

Dear Sailing365,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences. Whenever you plan on coming back, please drop me a line at lotte.dijkmansvangunst@westcordhotels.nl so that I can arrange a differently shaped room with harder beds for you; as all our rooms are slightly different I'm sure there is one perfectly to your likings!

Warm regards,

The hotel is located on a very central location, 5 minutes walk to the central station and Dam Square, also it never took more than a 15-20 minutes walk to many other attractions or central locations. The tram and underground station are right in front of the hotel which makes it very convenient to commute to further parts of the city. The street where the hotel is located has a variety of restaurants that suites all budgets and a number of mini supermarkets. The hotel reception staff are very helpful, the lobby is nice with a few vending machines for coffee and refreshments and after 8:00pm you can only access it with your room card for safety reasons. My room was on the 4th floor and the elevator is in good condition. The room is medium size, very clean and had a view of the Main Street, room service is very efficient as well. The room is sound proof, the bathroom is very clean however the top and bottom parts of it are transparent. The second person in the room will not see you while inside yet you have to shut the room's curtains if you are taking a shower. All the appliances in the room are in good condition; kettle, TV etc
In general I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and I would highly recommend it, it's good value for money.

This was my second visit to this hotel. The hotel is a short walk of about ten minutes from central station, but there is also a tram stop right outside the hotel should you wish to take a tram from the station. This tram stop outside the hotel also makes exploring the city very easy and you can buy your tram tickets from the hotel reception (these are official at no extra cost).
Upon arrival we were greeted by avert friendly lady called Helen who could not do enough to help us.
We were provided room 403 overlooking the street behind the hotel. The room was comfortable and mostly clean (a couple of forgivable bits we picked up ourselves). The room, as in most Amsterdam hotels is very small but well laid out. Comfy double bed (although a little too soft for me), wardrobe with safe, usual table, chairs and flat screen. Tea/coffee facilities found in the desk drawer. No fridge unfortunately. Air con worked really well. The bathroom is odd in that it is frosted glass walls in the middle. Above and below is clear glass. The shower was very good.
I cannot comment on the food as we didn't eat here, however if I recall, breakfast is €15,00 each and I think if you paid up front upon check-in, it was reduced to €12,50 per person, per day.
This was my second visit and I would consider staying here a third time.
