“Did the job, I suppose”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2005

I had heard that this was supposed to be one of the best hotels in Amsterdam and was looking forward to staying there.

We got a cheap internet deal and our room really reflected that fact. It was stuck out on a far away wing of the hotel and was small and rather unspectacular. We also had an unfortunate incident when some of our money disappeared, probably taken by a cleaner. In fairness, the hotel did act concerned but the matter was never resolved to our satisfaction.

On the plus side the location of the hotel cannot be faulted. It is right on the main square and close to the railway station and main tourist areas.

Overall this hotel did the job but the place itself just lacked something and when next in Amsterdam I will probably look elsewhere.

My wife & I arrived from the USA around 10am and were offered a choice of different rooms. We chose to stay in a room for 3 people - all at the same cost we had booked. The room was decent sized and clean. The bed and pillows were surprisingly comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I didn't like the idea that we had to pay extra to gain wireless internet access, but the business center was made available to us - so we used their computers to email back and forth to the states. The breakfast buffet we only okay - not at all worth the 22 euro charge - fortunately, it was included in the low-rate we received from one of the last minute online websites. The location is great - right at Dam Square. However, I believe that if we visit again, we will stay closer to Leidesplein as that is where we often found ourselves. The location is quite convienent, near shopping, canal tours, red light district, many dining options, etc.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2005

We stayed at the Apartment portion of this hotel earlier this month. It is a little difficult to book as the link seems to be buried in their website to do it. Overall, we really enjoyed it. We were a bit apprehensive due to a few of the reviews here, but we were completely satisfied. Since we enjoyed the location, the extra space vs. hotel room space and the ability to sleep in w/o maid service constantly knocking on your door, I will just highlight a few drawbacks. First, there was not any oven. We had no intention on "cooking", but we are fond of take-out from our favorite restaurants and sometimes the microwave "re-heating" just doesn't cut it. Not a big deal by any stretch of the imagination. Second, there a A LOT of stairs. Not only in the apartment (which I tried to photograph) but also to get up to the second floor was quite tricky with our luggage. The stairs are narrow, very steep and whindy (sp?). We utilized their bellhop, but it was a chore regardless. Again, not a deal breaker, just something to consider if climbing up 2-3 flights of stairs and down every day is not "your thing".

Bottom line, we will absolutely stay here again. Dam Square is beautiful at night and the apartmemt made it feel like home.

Not a 4 or 5 star hotel. I agree that the location is great, but the hotel is only ok. I would choose another hotel for my next trip to Amsterdam unless the rate was incredibly low. The bathrooms far below standard cleanliness and upkeep for a hotel of this supposed stature. All else OK, but not exceptional.

Beautiful hotel, we were there for just one night, Sept. 27, 2005. Big, beautiful room, lots of storage, beautiful new bathroom. Front desk was quick and efficient. Great location! AC could have been better, but that's Europe.

Well, Dam Square is the center of Amsterdam, so the location is perfect. The room had wood floors and a modern Scandanavian motif. My wife and I were given robes and slippers in our room. While we were happy with the room (5138), the hallway outside our room was plain and musty. The lobby and dining areas of the hotel were very beautiful. Overall, I recommend this hotel.

TIP - The hotel bar is the regular happy-hour hangout of Northwesten pilots and crew members. They were nice and fun and gave great tips for seeing the city.

2nd TIP - This hotel is the "5 star hotel" on that well-known site that doesn't reveal the hotel name until you pay (I don't know if I can say the name, but email me for it). Obviously, it's not a five star, but we used that site to get a very good rate of $205 per night.

After reading the last couple of reviews I feel like I stayed in a different hotel. The room was on the shabby side and the air conditioning did not work. I had 2 meals there and can say the food was terrible. However, the service was fine and the employees were pleasant. The place seems better suited for large tour groups. I will not likely stay here again.
