“Weekend break..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Booked the hotel online, excellent location for everything in Amsterdam. Reception staff are really helpful, especially Laura... Breakfast at €22 a bit pricy but was very good. We had room 109 which was quiet at night. Would recommend it.

Stayed February 2014

The location of the hotel is great, in the very centre, you can easily find everything. From the outside, hotel looks much better than inside. Rooms are so so, but clean and well maintained .
I would recommend it anyhow.

This place was fantastic -- we'll always chose to stay here when in Amsterdam. The location was perfect: easy walk from Centraal Station, easy walk into the Jordaan and all the other neighborhoods we like, and it was always super easy to find our way back because it's right behind Dam Square and the Palace and Nieuwe Kerk. Staff was lovely and the rooms were larger than I'd expected, with big bathrooms, safes and small fridges. Also, the breakfast was FABULOUS. Definitely eat there -- it's fresh, delicious with so many choices everyone in your party will be happy.

I stayed at this hotel with my family over the recent Christmas break, and here are my impressions:

Front of house staff (reception, concierge): Excellent! Very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at 9 in the morning, they arranged to get us a room right away because they knew our daughter would need a nap. When our daughter became ill during our stay, they brought her tea and crackers and arranged a taxi when we decided she needed medical attention. As we do not speak Dutch, their help with this was greatly appreciated.

The Room: A bit dark and in need of some newer furniture. Our room was large for a city center European hotel, as was our bathroom. We could see the Nieuwe Kerk from our window, which was nice. However, the room was very dark. We could not get enough light in our room, except by the bed with the use of the bedside reading light. The carpets and the furniture were dark in color and seemed a little old, which added to the dark feeling. Our room was also located right next to the smoking porch, so every time someone lit up it smelled as if they were actually smoking in our room. We did tell the from desk about this, but as our only option was to move rooms, we decided to stay and deal with it since both my daughter and I were ill with a stomach virus at this point and in no mood to re-pack.

Housekeeping: Not very good. During the majority of our stay our room was not cleaned even by late afternoon or evening. We would go out for the day and return to a room that had not been services. We had to ask for our room to be serviced while we were at dinner. One day, we just gave up on getting our room cleaned and asked for clean bath linens and for the housekeeper to take our trash. Housekeepers were friendly enough, and staff was apologetic, but I expected a little higher level of service.

Location: Excellent. We were right on Dam Square. It was walking distance to the Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Kerk, red-light district (if you are into that), several other museums, and many restaurants. It was less than a half hour to walk to the major art museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, etc).

Breakfast was also good. It is worth paying for if it is not included with your stay. There was a large selection of both hot and cold items, and plenty of typically Dutch foods that you don't see at just any hotel breakfast. We also had a pleasant experience in the little bar across from the restaurant. If you like jenever, or want to try it, this seems like a good place to go.

I would stay here again because most of the service was so good and the location can't be beat. Rates were also quite reasonable, but I would be willing to pay even more if a little refurbishment were undertaken and if housekeeping standards were improved.
