Great hotel, stayed here for a little more over a week and it was very cozy. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and provided ample amount of towels. Breakfast was good and the staff was very nice and helpful. This place is located in a good central location, just a one to two minute walk from Dam Square and within walking distance of most attractions. The elevator is a little scary but not a big deal, its healthier to take the stairs any way. Just make sure you kids stand back from the elevator door when its moving. Definitely would recommend this hotel to friends/family.

Apart from a great location, there is not much positive I can say about the Nova Hotel. Staff were friendly enough but clearly a self service place. Breakfast basic but ok. You have to leave your key at the front desk when you go out, which I didn't mind until they tried to give me back a key to the wrong room. The corridors are narrow, lots of steep stairs and poor yellowish lighting which made the cream colored walls look even dirtier and depressing. The theme continued in the room; don't get fooled by the pictures online, they must have been taken years ago with lots of extra lighting! Reality was poorly light room with dark carpeted floors, dirty walls, beds only a step up from camp beds, and very basic and old amenities. The sheets and towels looked clean at least. The bathroom was actually quite modern, shame they didn't have money left over to update the rooms too, they desperately need it! I had a room on the back of the hotel, first floor, facing a very depressing concrete wall. Weren't bothered by noises from the street but noises coming from inside the hotel were more than enough to wake me up a few times, floors are very creaky and you could hear other guests talking in their rooms and corridor. One of the cheeper hotels for sure, but I would have gladly paid more to stay elsewhere, had I known what to expect.

Very good hotel with very good staff. Traveling is my hobby thats why I have been in many countries. I can say i liked this hotel most of all. We had very comfortable room with excellent wifi. Breakfast was fresh and good. Location was excellent we didnt use any transport. But most of all I liked the staff. We had problem with our lost luggage in airport and the man reception in this hotel helped us.))) if i ll come back this city again one day Im sure I ll stay in this hotel..

Nice central location, within easy walking distance of both the station and Dam Square and the attractions of the Leidesplein.

We stayed in a four bedded room which was clean and comfortable.The bathroom was large with a corner bath and shower and ample towels.There was a small refrigerator in the room and a table with four chairs. Rooms designated as "family rooms" are often rather cramped but this one was huge! The bathroom is in the middle of the room with the sleeping areas at either end.

Breakfast was wonderful....a huge buffet with a wide selection of foods.

On previous visits to Amsterdam we have stayed in one of the large 5 star hotel chains. In future we will be staying at the Nova.
.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel face the main road....ideal if you like to listen to the trams going...

This hotel is centrally located in a nice part of Amsterdam, near restaurants, shops, museums, and the canals, less than a kilometer from Dam square. My room was very large, with a large, comfortable bed, refrigerator, desk, and table. The WiFi was fast and had a strong signal. The room was clean. The bathroom was large and the shower water pressure was great. The complimentary breakfast was also good. The only minor issue was that it was rather complicated to get to my room from the lobby. It required walking through several doors and hallways, and up and down a flight of stairs (beyond the two flights to get to my floor, for which there is also an elevator). I would guess that people who have trouble walking would also have trouble getting to these back rooms.

Location - Excellent
Rooms - Good
Staff - Good
Breakfast - Excellent

I stayed in this hotel with my friend and absolutely no complaints. Check in was very smooth and took just 2 mins. Room was clean and this hotel is located near all the major attractions.
Main road facing rooms are a bit noisy because of the passing by trams. All the tours and excursion can be booked at the hotel reception.
