“Good service, nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

The hotel is very close to the train station (5min walk), modern and well maintained. I stayed there in December and have to say that the christmas decorations made it a warm and welcoming place. The staff appeared to be careful, friendly and very professional.
Our room was of decent size, offering the usual equipement for this type of hotel (safe, ironing board, TV, coffee machine...) and comfortable mattress. The only negative point is the quite low-ceiling, it was inclined on one side of the room and if you are above 1m85 and not careful you'll keep bumping into it.
Last point I would mention is the gym center which was of medium size (4 trendmills, 3 elliptical bikes, 1 bike, and a wide range of dumbells), like the hotel well maintained with staff frequently coming to ensure that there were enough towels and warm towels available.

Overall a good place to stay in Amsterdam for a reasonnable price.

Stayed for one night on a business trip.
Location is good ...close to central station and the center of amsterdam.
Rooms are really too small ....smallest that I have ever stayed at (I have stayed at many euope hotels which have small rooms but this was extremely small)
Breakfast is good and elaborate.
Staff is friendly and nice.

I have stayed here around 7 times during the last 6 months. The service is attentive, the food is great, the rooms comfortable and nicely decorated.
It is a busy hotel, with flight crews in and out each day.
The staff are friendly, and it's central location is useful for the Metro access and tourist areas of Amsterdam.
Recommended.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here. The location is great - a few short blocks from the central station but in a quieter neighborhood. The service was excellent in the restaurant and the concierge lounge. Our room was very quiet and comfortable.

Its probably a bit expensive for what you get. Everyone seems to bleat about EURO 25 for internet access in the rooms and EURO 25 for breakfast and other stuff so blah, blah, blah to you. Don't be so boring Mr. Skid and get out of your room and roam the Dam, obviously after going to Greenwoods for breakfast (5 min walk along along the Singel), even if you are supposed to be working! The Renaissance is a classy launch pad for all excursions through, around and across the most interesting capital city in the world and you have to pay for the privilege - beats the old days of Bobs Youth Hostel 9 Gilders a night and having to share a dorm with a load of Shanks!. Then end your hard days activities with a nice brew in the picturesque Koepelcafe although make sure you are not in a hurry to finalsie any deal as you will miss the Love Boat. We will be back next year Sir Marriott of Hotels.

Room Tip: Get one with a balcony

Good location less than 5 minutes walk from Central Station, stylishly designed, good service, great beds, well equipped (but very small) rooms.

Breakfast is great, but at 28 Euros it needs to be!

Overall, a decent standard, efficient chain hotel.

4 Nights there. Nothing I could complain.
Pros:
- Best pillows and bed even experience, better bed sheets I had ever
- Very quiet neighbor. Good to rest and laid.
- Notable choice for breakfast, both american and european, even good enough for latinamerican people.
- Very professional frontdesk, quick check in and quick cheout, Also very professional maid staff.
- Close 2 (short) streets to the Amsterdam Central Station, 5 (really shorts) streets for Dam Square. Just for the record Dam Square is at 1 street away from the Red Light Distric.
- Close to nearby 2 good places to dinner: "The Silver Spiegel" (just crossing the street, requires reservations) and the "Five fliyings" (kind of 10 minutes walking distance).
- The back street of the hotel is the last block of the "Golden Street". That means you can get it there some kind of market, shopping souvenirs stores, coffee stores (they don't sell coffee), pizzas, and other sutff, just like a regular tourist street.
- Very clean. Spotless, Can't say other word.
- The temp system work really well. Even the shower.
- There is a "Navigator" at front desk. (We didn't used because we had TripAdvisor for Android). But seems to be able to speak at least 7 lenguages (including spanish)
Can do better
- Access to the B-wing. The people (We) who take a room in the 9XX rooms had to take 2 elevators and long walk to their rooms.
- The system of the minibar "can detect" if you take out the some stuff for more than 30 second. Please be aware.

Room Tip: - Ask for non B-Wing or 9XX room. There are 2 elevators and long walk from the lobby if you get that...
