“Excellent hotel in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

The hotel is right opposite Central Station so is perfect after a long journey. Its also just a short walk to the Red Light District and DAM Square.

I have stayed in this hotel before and our room this time round was bigger than before. There seemed to be a lingering smell of drains every now and then from the bathroom and also outside the hotel. This wasn't a big enough problem for us to mention.

The room was spotless and the facilities were great. Compared to most Amsterdam Hotels this is luxury, but the price reflects that.

The staff were helpful, although not very friendly on check in.

I am going to stay here next year as I felt very safe and loved the area.

Room Tip: Room 203 is right at the front of the hotel overlooking the hustle and bustle of the station. For a...

Excellent and prestigious location.
Very nice staff, always ready to help, I saw every body smiling, it looks like they all love their job (or they are good comedians)

Parking> the P1 public parking a front of the hotel is very expensive (55€/24h) but the hotel propose a valet service that is much cheaper and very convenient.
You park at the front door, ask for the service and a guy will be there in less that 10 minutes.
Then sign a paper, give him your keys and tell him when you want your car back. Price > 30€ for the 1st day, and then 25 per each additional day. That was very convenient, the guy was punctual and no damage was done to my car. (and I got a receipt and a signed paper in case of damages but all went OK)

One small detail: yes, like in every hotel in Amsterdam, some guests smokes cannabis in their room and it can smell in the corridor. if you smell it, inform the guys downstair and they will take immediate action. They really care, it's a question of image, but it happens every days in every hotel in that city.

For the rest there is ice dispenser in the corridor, the mini bar is full (and crazy expensive as usual). The soap set is nice, the mattress is very good and also the pillow (my friend has back pain and ask for the brand to buy the same at home (you can actually buy it directly from the web site of the hotel)).

One negative point is the a/c unit noise you can hear (not the one of the room, we let it off), we were at second floor of urban wing, but i had no problem to fall asleep any way. We could also hear a bit the noise from people in the corridors, but nothing from other rooms (which is the most important IMHO)

Good to know > if you walk a lot, and want to please your feet, between the old and the new ing of the hotel, there is small tiny pedestrian street where you can find a foot massage salon (25€ for 30min or 40€ for 1h, they also propose pedicure). If you walk as much as we did, you will enjoy it. We discovered that salon too late to enjoy it :(

The hotel is in a fantastic location. Near the central train station and the old part of Amsterdam. A short walk to great restaurants and pubs and the red light district, if you are that way inclined.

The hotel is nice, with good amenities. However, the room was not brilliant. Old shower over the bath and just not looking that clean. We didn't book breakfast as is was quite expensive but there are enough cafes nearby that are much cheaper.

The staff are very friendly and Dennis the concierge is brilliant.

It was just the state of the room that kept the review at 3 stars.

Fantastic Location of this hotel close to Amsterdam Central station and 10-15 mins walk from all major attractions. Our room was dated as it was in the old part of the hotel and would have preferred a more modern room. Breakfast was excellent and also staff especially Peter who works on the concierge desk who can give very good advice on tours. A+

Room Tip: Look for room in new part of hotel.

Fantastic location walking distance to everywhere. Brilliant if you fly in and get the train to central station it is a 1 minute walk across the road. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast with amazing selection. We had a lovely room and a lovely weekend.

Friendly employees, excellent location, and a reasonable breakfast buffet.
But I had a room in the old part of the hotel, and really, a refurbishment is necessary. Their is a thin line between charming authentic and plain old. I found the room just old with squeaking floor, with electric switches ON the wall, a very small bathroom with a small tub and a shower curtain. The hall leading to the room looked completely worn out.
Must admit, the room itself was very quiet, but I had the top floor.
Meeting rooms are in the basement of the new building adjacent. Bit complex to find with elevators up and down, and corridors to walk, only to find kind of weird smelling meeting rooms with no daylight at all.
Parking your car in the direct neighborhood can be very expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building.
