“Amsterdam DEC2011”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

This hotel has a very good location, near Dam square and main shopping area.
Value for the money also very good. There were spa facilities in the hotel but I haven't use any so I can not give any feedback on that.
The superior room that I booked was quite big, a bit old fashion furnished, but in general good and clean enough.
The breakfast was a bit expensive but that's an option and you might skip it.

Excellent location but the hotel is now in an urgent need of renovation. Our hotel window was not closing correctly so the room was very noisy because of the tramway and traffic in the street despite that we were on the 5th floor. We managed to get ear plugs at the reception. The bathroom is also to be renovated. This hotel should have been vey nice 10 years ago.
Clean room and nice breakfast although expensive

Close to the station. The hotel is situated between the 'coffee shops' and modern shopping area. For us ( 20.y.o female and 25y.o. male) we loved it. We were initially concerned by the proximity to dozens of coffee shops, but soon realised this was apart of the Amsterdam atmosphere. The bathrooms certainly needed a renovation giving them a 2 stars. The hotel is not worth more then a 3.5 stars, whilst the building and room are nice, the service was only that of a 3 star hotel. Would stay here again for location.

Great location & Good value! We stayed at more expensive hotels before and after our stay at the Convent but this was my favorite spot. There is a very cozy pub downstairs modeled after the Orient Express. I would definitely recommend it to friends who plan to visit Amsterdam.

I stayed at the hotel on Christmas Eve on a special promotional rate. The hotel was almost completely empty. In spite of that, I was given a shabby room on an airwell. Staff was friendly. Breakfast ok.
