“This is a almost perfect hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Positive aspects:

1) The location is superb - about a 4 minute walk from the Nieuwmarkt subway station and a 15-20 minute walk to most tourist attractions. It's in a safe area. There was also a deli nearby, to the east down a street and over the canal that would put NY to shame and was very well-priced for lunch.


2) The hotel was clean, very clean in fact.

3) The fitness center was exceptional for europe with free weights, bikes and machines. The only thing I would add is a pullup bar.

4) The breakfast at the restaurant is unbelievable. The buffet is top 3, lifetime. Meats, cheeses, baked goods, smoothies, juices - you name it, they have it. Everything was fresh squeezed, too. Try the picked herring, if you can.

5) We paid for an extra bed and ended up getting a junior suite and breakfast, which was a great deal. The room had 3 huge windows, high ceilings - at least 14 feet) and a luggage area. The bathroom had nice shower amenities and soft robes and towels.

6) Everyone was very friendly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

My wife and I stayed at this hotel the last time we were in Amsterdam. We were very pleased with our choice. The hotel itself is beautiful on the inside, from the spacious lobby to the restaurant. The rooms were large for European standards and even had a heated bath room floor. The bar area was very relaxing as was the dinning room. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we had while on vacation. The only down side about this hotel is that the view from our room left a lot to be desired. Upon opening our drapes we overlooked an alley and the building next to us. In fact we were so close to the building next to us that we could see a lady eating her breakfast each day, she ate quite well. Other than that we would stay there again and advise others to do so as well.

Had three nights here with my wife recently. Very pleasant staff and high standard of cleanliness and decoration. Our room was a good size and we thought we got good value for money with the package we bought via BA. Food was good and staff very nice. The location is ideal in that it is surrounded by quiet streets but we'll within walking distance of all the sights of Amsterdam. Central station is only a 15 walk through the center of 'the dam'.

I done this trip as i birthday present for my boyfriend and asked the hotel do add birthday banners, petals and a bottle of presseco. Although this added to the price it was a reasonable price and to see his face was all worth it. The location was perfect and staff were very welcoming and polite. I could not have asked for a better weekend away, definetly reccommend it!

Perfect situation, excellent service and all you expect for this kind (price). Even when we spent most of the day walking the city getting back to the hotel was a great experience. No doubt I would choose same hotel in our next visit.

I really felt home at this hotel, great service, good food and passionate staff. Right in the center of Amsterdam. Nice authentic bar integrated in the hotel building. In the heart of the center of Amsterdam.

Was underwhelmed with this hotel. Promised so much when looking online and speaking with staff, but found the hotel very 'meh'. Billing was wrong on check-out, found the staff to be like robots with very little interaction. In the bar we were ignored as there were some businessmen who were spending
more money than us, just didn't feel valued there. We got a great deal and Amsterdam is a fantastic city, but will be looking elsewhere on our next visit
