We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Roode Leeuw. Central location was perfect: an easy walk from Central Station, and close enough to walk almost everywhere. If you use the tram, they're right across the street or around the corner.
Dam Square is very noisy (there's an amusement park set up there) but the noise didn't bother us at all (except if we opened the window, and then heard faint shrieks from the riders thrown up in the air).
Absolutely terrific, friendly, and helpful staff. I even emailed them with lots of question before our trip, and they promptly answered.
This hotel has an elevator, which should not be taken for granted in Amsterdam.
We had the breakfast, which was offered at a special reasonable rate for our stay, and found it a great way to start the day. (food in Amsterdam is expensive).
There are plenty of fast food and sandwich places right in the area, if that's your preference.
Our room was very nice. Maybe we were lucky, because the size of the room was fine.
Excellent lighting, which again, is not a given in many hotels. And a real closet for clothes and suitcases! The bathroom was "snug", but certainly adequate, and very nicely appointed. I'll never understand the "half shower curtain sheet of glass " in so many hotels - the floor still gets wet.
Glad we stayed here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Great central location, affordable rates, clean & comfortable rooms and friendly & attentive hospitality. In an amazing location, just off Dam Square and right in the middle of Amsterdam's city center, you'll find Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw. This is where you want to stay if you're coming to Amsterdam. Sure, you can find fancier 4 star hotels in Amsterdam, but what we may lack in glitz we more than make up for in authentic friendliness and true hospitality. All of our bathrooms are all new, and our rooms are comfortable, well maintained, and always spotlessly clean. ... more less
