“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

The neighborhood is lovely with several restaurants that were excellent and a variety of shops. Very conveniently located to the trams which is the best way to get around the city. The hotel staff was very nice. The room could use a little TLC (stained grout and ceiling in the bathroom) and they don't provide shampoo and conditioner bottles like you typically get at a hotel But they did have a shampoo/body wash dispenser in the shower. Breakfast was pretty basic but perfectly fine and it was very nice to have a little bar in the hotel lobby. I would stay there again.

First off all, I had expected more from a 4 star hotel. The hotel is old and the rooms are run down. Also, the room had a weird smell and was not exactly generous in size. I found the location to be too far away from downtown as you have to take a tram wherever you go.

Positives:
- Extremely friendly staff
- Clean rooms

Negatives:
- Far away from Amsterdam Center
- Room smelled weird
- Small rooms
- Old rooms
- Poor toiletries

Wasn't sure what to expect from this hotel but was very pleasantly surprised. The people at the front desk were very helpful in giving me information and advice. I didn't notice any problems with the cleanliness of the room or the bathrooms. I really liked the location outside the city center and near Vondelpark. Two tramlines located nearby to get you anywhere in the city. Its in a very quiet and peaceful area especially at night.
The only problem I had with room were the pillows. I did not think they were comfortable but this did not prevent me from getting a good nights rest.
Considering the price I thought this hotel was very good and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hotel in Amsterdam.

We stayed here in August 2011 for our honeymoon. Minute we mentioned we were on honeymoon they upgraded our room and also delievered flowers and chocolate. The staff who worked there were always friendly and told us exactly were to go and were not go inside amsterdam. Room was clean , well kept and the bed was very comfortable. All in all we had an amazing time and I rate this as one of the best hotels ive ever stayed in. Definatly will be visiting there again

Room Tip: say you on honeymoon!

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon in Aug 2011. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. They suggested nice places to visit for eating, shopping and seeing. They also helped us get a van to the airport when our stay was over. The hotel itself was nice, although the room was a bit small. It did have a good sized bathroom however and good a/c. It was located in a quieter, safe-feeling neighborhood about a five minute walk from the Museum District. It was perfect to be just a little bit away from the busier streets and tons of people.

We stayed there for a week. If you find a good offer, and are willing to settle for a 3* hotel it could be a good choice for you. With that said, on the possitive side, the tramway is very close and will get you within 10 min to the city center or to the museumplein,the neiborhood is safe, the staff is polite, breakfast is basic but ok and the beds comfortable.On the other hand, the carpet needs imediate stripping or deep cleaning, the bathrooms need renovating (shower curtains dirty and falling on our heads, problems turning the taps) and the standart bedrooms feel a little cramped...

Room Tip: Do not pay more for a suite the only difference from standart rooms is a lounge chair and a little m...
