My cousin and I stayed here for a week in Aug. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly as well. While the room was a bit small, it was no smaller than some hotel rooms in NYC that I've stayed in. We had no issues during our week stay.
Our room had a balcony with french doors that did open up and faced the street. Even though we had a street view room, it was surprisingly quiet during the day. The bathrooms are a bit different than those in the U.S. in that the shower area is smaller and there is no shower curtain so the entire bathroom tends to get wet. However, the cleaning crew did a very nice job cleaning and wiping down the bathroom on a daily basis. While many people from the States may not be used to this, I was as this is done in countries in Asia as well. Keep in mind that you're in another country and not everything is the same as it is at home.
I would definintely recommend staying here to anyone and everyone! It is centrally located and smack in the middle of the heart of Amsterdam. Also, while there is a tram stop right in front of the hotel, you can save yourself a few euros and just walk to the hotel from Amsterdam Centraal. It's only about a 10 min walk.
I'm not really sure why some people have left such negative comments such as "MefoandMeho's." If you want all the bells and whisles in a hotel room then suck it up and pay the extra $200 /night up front on a room at a luxury hotel rather than trying to be a cheap skate and complaining about it after the fact then blaming it on the establishment not meeting your wants/expectations.
- 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
