“Simple yet effective.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The hotel is well situated near Dam Square and about 20-25 minutes walk from the Centraal Station. It is surrounded by beautiful canals and shops, restaurants and bars. My friend and I had a twin room and it was perfect for what we wanted... We used it as a base mainly for luggage as we spent a lot of time out and about. The room was clean and organised and the staff were friendly and gave us their recommendations for entertainment places. It is also close to the Red Light District. The only con would be the steep stair case up to the reception from the street but it is perfectly acceptable if you have small luggage.

All in all it is a perfect hotel for closeness to most tourist areas.

You don't get a lot for your money in Amsterdam. This place was only around 30 pounds more than a hostel. The stairs are fine, it's just how the houses were built in Amsterdam. The room was an OK size and the shower was hot. The windows needed a clean and there were a bit of a damp problem but overall it was clean. If you have problems with traffic noise simply bring ear plugs with you. Breakfast was pretty good, and the gave you the chance to chat to other guests while watching some english TV.

We had stayed last year and knew what to expect. Although the smell of cat pee at door entrance was overwhelming (hold your nose going up the stairs to reception) the rooms are adequate for sleeping and relaxing in. We had a balcony (great to people watch from) and great views of street and canals. Bed linen was fresh and clean, but no towels in room on arrival, and safe deposit box did not work. Adequate tea/coffee making facilities. Good location and close to all attractions. Would stay again.

Reception area smells of urine. Room was full of dust very small had to complain within five mins ,ten plus european children screaming and banging Next door This went on for 4 days Children stood in the corridors making us feel unwelcome .No cleaners just a man who knocks to see if u want your room cleaned. Asked for directions to ann franks house at reception got a one word answer "left" very helpful.the noise is insane into the night dont expect a comfortable stay. Heating did not work! Amsterdam is amazing dont stay here and let it ruin your experience seriously check it out fully before booking not for the faint hearted

We stayed at the Hotel Diann just for the weekend but it more than fitted our needs! Quiet rooms, ensuite bathroom and breakfast in the morning was all we needed. The added bonus was that our room had a balcony looking over a canal which was lovely. The stairs to get to the reception are quite steep as people have said but it became more of a joke than a hinderence and many a time we laughed walking up them! All in all a great place to stay and would definately book here again!

Room Tip: Close to the train station (10 min walk) and Dam square (5 min)
