“Stay here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

If you are looking for an reasonably price and well situated hotel, this is the place. The staff is kind, courteous, knowledgeable, patient and kind. The rooms are larger than most European hotels and the property is located very close to all the museums as well as within reasonable walking distance to Dam Square. If you want to take a canal tour, it's right outside the hotel door plus you can take a bus directly to/from the airport to the hotel (bus 197). The price is reasonable for this city and you will stay in a historic building with an amazing ambiance.

Room Tip: Many people have stated that the rooms are noisy, we had no problem.

Dear Guest, thank you for your visit and your review posting. We are sorry to hear that the necessary renovation works caused disturbance and frustration. Some guests prefer your room type because it is rather quiet. The wifi capacity is actually more than 128KB, should you desire even more, vouchers for high capacity can be purchased. We shall carefully look into the water pressure. It is at a certain level to comply with environmental standards for the Green Key label. I you would try us again, let us arrange a room that meets with all your requirements to try and change your opinion. We hope that you will take us up on that proposal. With best regards,

This hotel is has the City theater and the Bellevue theater as neighbors and just a short walk to find bus or the tram line. Outside the main entrance you will find a canal and one of the many boat stops for sightseeing.
The hotel is old and there are a wide range of different rooms and stairways to the rooms. Some of the rooms are on the same level as an elevator, but not all of them. If you have problems with stairs advice the hotel up front. They will do their best to help you.
We met a helpful and smiling service at the reception. The concierge doubled as a bellboy and our suitcases came pretty fast to our room.
Our room was on the 4 floor on the corner facing Leidseplein and the city theater. Please be aware that this also is a bit noisy. The tramway almost runs 24 hours a day and especially often in the early morning bringing the commuters to their jobs. It is possible, but not recommended to sleep with an open window.
Cleaning was as good as expected. The maid was also making sure that you was the right person to enter the room if you tested her. I liked that.
Breakfast was OK, but nothing special. The cost was aprox 15,50 euros when ordered and payed up front at the reception and 4,- euros extra if you just turned up. The restaurant and the bar where popular and had a decent service.
A taxi from the airport was aprox 40,- euros (August 2013).
We where 8 persons in 4 rooms and had a good offer for the price. To just by a full price room seams expensive, but so are Amsterdam hotels. For a private person I would recommend to consider a hotel outside the city limits even though this location was nice and close nough to several interesting sights.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the canal is quieter than rooms facing Leidseplein.

I visited this hotel for a weekend in august. I found the staff very helpful and it was also close to vondel park and the van gogh museum. One evening we had dinner at the cafe american which was very good food. The hotel is not cheap but i would highly recommend it to any one who wants to spend a romantic weekend in amsterdam.

The hotel is centrally located and the rooms are spacious and lovely. My husband and I are thankful that we splurged on our stay here! Big, comfy bed and the breakfast was a good value. Hopefully we'll get to visit again in the future!

Having seen the somewhat variable reviews on tripadvisor was nervous about booking this hotel but decided to go ahead as our friends visiting from Bali were already booked to stay. On arrival we were very quickly registered and our room proved to be spacious and clean. The location of the hotel is fantastic being close to the museums, nightlife and pretty much everything that is going on in Amsterdam.
