“Practical and Affordable ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Firstly, we selected this hotel for a convenient and budget weekend in Amsterdam. Location, location, location is the key for this hotel and you can walk anywhere in the City literally within minutes. the hotel is right next door to the main train station, but do not worry because the rooms are completley sound proofed, The hotel is very gay friendly and is very convenient for Paradiso, Rapido, Westerunie and most other club venues. The staff are very helpful and polite and the rooms are basic, but clean, tidy and respectable for the price.

This hotel offers a very convenient location. We flew into Amsterdam via Schipol so had a bit of driving to do to reach the hotel but once there we were ideally located. The train station is right next door and the the open top tour buses leave from right across the road. Other attractions are within 15 minutes walk including Dam Square and the Red Light District. There are many cafes and restaurants within walking distance as well.

On the negative side the room I shared with my wife whilst clean was the smallest hotel room I have ever encountered. I am 6'4" and the toilet and bath can barely accommodate my size. Having said this the room served its purpose as a respite from the intense touring we did. The room was also very basic and lacked a fridge which would have been a nice amenity to have.

Dear Mr Nis N,

Thank you very much for your comment on Tripadvisor. Your feedback is most valuable to us.

I'm happy to hear you liked the location and that you enjoyed your stay.

The size of the room can be considered as 'cute', which is often the case in Amsterdam, but with so much action right on your doorstep, most guests spend all day outside the hotel.

We're looking forward to welcoming you again in the future!

Best regards,

My partner and I had a fabulous stay during August. Having ventured to Amsterdam from Paris by train, it was nice to be right next door to our hotel.

The room was everything we needed, clean, comfy bed, great pillows, in-room safe and airconditioning (not that we needed it!). The daily breakfast had a big range of options, especially appreciated as I have specific dietary requirements.

The staff were all prompt and friendly, offering local advice and answering our questions. The hotel also included free wifi, which was really handy.

Would definitely stay here again!

We came straight here from the train station for one night and it was so easy to find. Smack bang in the middle of town, great room, perfect for 2 and all we needed.
Definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience Amsterdam for a night.

The good points of this hotel:The location (only 2' walking from railway central station); the room was clean; the staff kind and helpful.The wifi worked properly. The bad points: the room and the bathroom were very small, the bathroom has no window nor fan, it was more a cruise cabin than an hotel room.No fridge in the room.
The breakfast was various but it costed 14 euros per person!!! According to me the room and the breakfast were pricy for what was offered. I know that Amsterdam is pricy as well, maybe booking in advance can help you.

Dear Romangirl79,

Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
I'm happy to hear you were satisfied with the location, cleanliness of the rooms and most importantly: our staff.

Amsterdam is indeed a beautiful, but pricy city. Advance bookings can indeed help you get a lower rate. Please check accorhotels.com for the best available rates!

Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future.

This would have got 4 starts instead of five except I dont think the rooms are actually that nicely decorated. I stayed here for a total of three nights and the location is absolutely amazing. Its right next to the central station literally, and it is a piece of cake to get a tram to anywhere in Amsterdam as its about 2 minutes walk from the hotel door.
The room is small, and has a weird terracotta colour inside but when in Amsterdam you wont be spending much time there, so its not a big deal! Didnt have the breakfast as part of my booking so cant comment on that. It was super clean in this hotel as well and the bathroom was brilliant!
Would stay here again purely because of the location!

This hotel is next to the main train station in Amsterdam which was a relief after a long week of traveling. We were able to get off the train from the airport and walk next door to a clean room and warm shower. The staff was kind and helpful and the rooms were bright and clean. It's a basic hotel but a good starting point since its close to so many restaurants and metro stops.
