“Great no problems”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Stayed here for 5 days, room was quite small but it was clean And the staff were very helpful, it wasnt a shabby room it was very modern. The bathroom was tiny but it didnt matter. location was great because its about 20min walk to red light district, or about 10mins to remembrantplein. Its nice to have a hotel outside of the hustle and bustle Which means you get to enjoy the peace outside the city! This hotel has a lovely park next to it which is nice to relax in! Good tram connections to the city, pretty easy to work out. Also i didn't eat the breakfast at the hotel there is a lovely little cafe right next door to the hotel which has wonderful cheaper breakfast! The staff at the hotel even allowed us to order dominoes in!
overall i would definitly stay here again!

Stayed here for 3 nights and it served its purpose rooms were on the small side as was the bathroom and shower area and tbh it needs a bit of an upgrade . However it was only a 15mins walk to Dam Sq so was in a decent location. As has been said wifi was very good and clean linen every day. Would I stay again? No

My daughter and I stayed here on a recent short break. It was fine for us, practical, central, clean (ish), pleasant staff, comfy beds, but had I booked this for a romantic break with my husband I would have been devastated. It does what it says on the tin.
My only real criticism is the smell of our bathroom. It was foul, and I see from other reviews it is a known problem. Having returned and reread reviews where other people do not mention a smell I assume that some rooms were ok. I mentioned it to reception staff each morning and evening of our stay, but they never offered to change our room, and I find myself a little annoyed now that we could have had a more pleasant trip in a different room...if only they had offered. If I stayed again I would insist on a different room...a word to the wise....don't stay in room 223!
On a positive note, the coffee at breakfast was fantastic, the breakfast was good, and trams 9 and 14 stopped right outside.

Room Tip: Don't have room 223. If your room smells awful insist on changing it...it won't go away!

The hotel is in a great location. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are medium sized but the bathroom is small. The walls are also very thin and you can hear noise from next door and beyond. The rooms are clean and you get fresh linen everyday. Would stay here again.

Very good location, and very reasonable prices. Good internet connection. The only con were the very (very) small room and bathroom. However, if you're a solo traveller and don't need a desk, it's ok.

Very basic "Amsterdam XXX themed" hotel offering small, conveniently located rooms with a 5 minute walk from the city centre. You can upgrade to a more "spacious" room for 25€ but to be honest if your looking for a place to get your head down it does the job. Breakfast was pretty bland but let's face it, the Dutch prefer a continental breaky. The room was equipped with a safe which is handy plus a hair dryer.

We found this hotel a decent and quiet one, not new or luxurious, but adequate for a short stay. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel to save time due to our short 3 day stay, it cost us about EUR 50.

The 4-bedded room (2 x 2 single beds placed together) was reasonably big with just enough room for walking (but we have seen more cramped ones, so this was ok to our standard). We found the room not very user friendly. The bath gel dispenser was located at a weird position so you would end up hitting it or knocking the cover off during your shower. Doors creak loudly whenever you open or close them. We could hear sounds of the tap running or doors creaking from the room next door very loudly. The bathroom and toilet is located in 2 separate cubicles, side by side, with the basin located outside at a corner behind the door to the room.

Wifi was fast with good connection. The hotel staff at the reception was polite, though she offered information only upon request and further probing. You can buy the tram ticket from the reception or on the tram itself from the conductor. Remember to tap in and out on the card reader.

The hotel is easily accessible by tram (number 9). Quite near to city centre, but i believe it should still take at least 15 min to walk there (we didn't try it). However, we walked to Nemo. Took us 15 minutes. A few eateries/restaurants near the hotel.

Breakfast cost about EUR16 per pax, so we decided not to go for it. We tried a small cafe just steps away from the hotel entrance. It cost us much less and we liked the food served (croissant, toasted bread, eggs, bacon, ham, jam, butter, coffee, tea).

This hotel is not bad for a short stay. Overall we had a good stay, but I would want to try another hotel when i visit Amsterdam in the future.
