“Everything was great, but ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I really enjoyed this hotel overall, but there was one perplexing thing: they are currently under renovation and booked us in a room adjacent to where they were doing HEAVY construction.

Why put customers in what seemed like a not very full hotel in a room like that? When the construction began with a bang at 7am sharp, we called the desk to see if they could delay the workers for a few minutes so that we could shower and get out. They were working with very loud tools on the other side of the wall in the bathroom, making it a near deafening experience to shower. Honestly, it sounded like the wall could give way at any second.

The desk couldn't stop the workers, but they did offer to move us (we declined as we were only staying one more day and had to get up quite early), and gave us vouchers for free breakfast for the duration of our stay. That was a very nice gesture. And that's just the thing, the staff at this hotel was BEYOND accommodating and helpful. Kelly was the woman at the desk we spoke to the most, and she was simply wonderful. But why even put us in that room to begin with? Perplexing.

Beyond that, no complaints. Excellent location with a tram right in front of the hotel and a wonderful spot for food and drinks across from that - De Biertuin. Breakfast was solid, rooms clean, generally great neighborhood out of the majority of the tourist bustle. Would easily stay here again.

Hotel pretends to be fully non smoking, but rooms smell like smoke and on the table next to the bed an ashtray with matches was offered !!

Rather remote location from the city center, not much bars and restaurants around

I have not seen tube TVs in Hotels in Europe for a while, usually only when travelling in developing countries, i though flatscreens were standard by now. Poor choice of cable channels

Slept here for one night in the midst of january 2014.
Entrance by car was somewhat difficult due to road construction, parking costs are € 20 a day.
The hotel is old and so are the elevators and the rooms.
When first entering the room i smelt a penetrating body odor, which was quite disgusting. Needed to open the windows a couple of hours to get rid of the smell.
View from the room on higher floors is great.
Bedding is fine, bathroom very small and old, soap and shampoo in good order.
All in all a great location that should appeal to many visitors.
For the price offered i prefer a newer (and cleaner) hotel in the outer circle of Amsterdam.

I was extremely satisfied with my stay at this hotel. It was excellent value for money, beds were comfortable and clean, room was clean, I had a great view, the shower was great and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I shall certainly recommend this hotel to friends. It is basic but really good .

Room Tip: try to get a room on one of the top floor overlooking the park which is quieter than the street with...

We really enjoyed our three day stay at this hotel. The room was small but clean and modern looking. The breakfast was offered to us at 12 euros if we pre booked and 19 euros if not but it is expensive and we ate out much cheaper. The location is superb with tram no 9 right outside which takes you directly to the dam. Staff are very friendly and the beds comfy. The hotel may not look very attractive from the outside but inside it is modern and clean. Also the massage chairs are a must in the lobby for 2 euros. I would definitely stay again.

An excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff and very good breakfast.
The Location is great and the view from the 8th floor was fabulous.
The only downside was that the (free!) internet connection had to be renewed every 24 hours, and was somewhat limited - video Skype talks were limited to short time.
