“Charming warm friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed in this hotel before and so were fully aware of the close proximity to central station and dam square. We emailed the hotel to see about trams and were kindly given the information that we needed and also were happy to jump on the tram after an early flight!

Upon arrival a lovely receptionist greeted us warmly. As we had stayed before we were told we had been upgraded to an executive suite. Fab! So we checked in and we must say out room was very large great view of the roof tops. Separate toilet and bathroom - which also had a large jacuzzi bath - very nice touch. Our bed was king sized and very comfy. Nice large flat screen tv and desk and seating area. The wifi reception on was great for our room also. We had a free safe and also a fridge - not stocked though. Rooms decorated in white and blue Delph style.

Maid service wAs efficient and very good each day of our stay with our bathroom products being replenished also. We had room service which was very quick and also tasty as was the champagne! Rather reasonably priced for a city centre. We had a buffet breakfast and I must say it was one of the best stocked that I have had of late. Breads meats cheeses cereals coffees juice yoghurt pancakes preserves cold fresh fruit and also bacon scrambled and boiled eggs bacon sausage toast baked beans - was very fresh and very tasty. Served at a civilised hour as well 7-11 weekend and 7-1030 on week days.

All in all a great trip and we are planning our next visit and yes, it will be back to this hotel ! Thanks !

Hotel is in excellent location, just behind Dam Sq. and 10 minutes walking from central train station. We were upgraded to a twin executive, which had 2 single beds and a window to an interior shaft. The executive room is on average size, so i guess the lower categories are rather small. Breakfast is good. free wifi is fast enough for mobile apps and mails. we asked for a late check out (1 pm instead of noon) and were told it is possible for a supplement of 5 Euro, which felt a bit petty. i think that if the room is available for another hour, its decent to give it free of charge.
staff are very friendly in general.

I stayed for couple of night in this hotel in october, while the reception is lovely and the location is good, the room was very dark with a small window and too simple for the price you pay.
mind you the coffee shop on the corner is nice and cosy, but yet the service is average

I stayed in room 111 a single that was rather "tight" with a view across a short roof space to the next block just 6 metre away. I did see inside room 105 the other side of the corridor which was a twin over looking the street and looked much nicer.
The hotel has an older family feel about it for those travellers like me who do not like the large in personable international type hotel chains.
The room was clean, comfortable bed and the hotel communal areas were "cosy"
The breakfast there was adequate.
Centrally positioned it is in a great place to see the city. I took a transfer bus from the airport to the hotel. The bus normally has several stops at other hotels on the way and gives a great tour of the city on route. Cost one way Euro 16.50

Room Tip: 105 a twin overlooking the street

This is a great spot to stay in Amsterdam - once we arrived in the train station we walked everywhere we needed to go including to this hotel from there. It is right by Dam Square which if you ever get lost anyone would be able to point you to. The wifi is good and no extra charge the breakfast has a great selection. The staff are very very helpful especially the nice gentelman concierge working in main reception, He knew directions to everywhere in the city and gave us discounts voucher for some of the attractions in Amsterdam. Our room was a little on the small side but we spent so little time there this was not an issue. We plan another trip to Amsterdam in the summer with some family and we hope to stay here again

This is a great hotel conveniently located in the heart of downtown with a metro station right outside. The food was good and there was a nice variety for breakfast in the morning. A nice little pub attached to the hotel made it perfect for finishing off the evening with a cold beer or a warm coffee and Bailey's.

Although our room was small, it was clean, quiet and well furnished. The bed was very comfortable.

The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. They were always willing to call us a taxi or help us out with questions regarding local attractions.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to call home while checking out the sights of Amsterdam.
