“Good location, small rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The hotel is overall ok, the location right next to the train station comes in handy when you arrive by train and don't have to use a tram or cab to get to your hotel.

Had a room on the first floor, facing the downtown Amsterdam side, no issues with trains, no problem to open a window and still have a great sleep.

The room itself is pretty tiny, you better don't bring to much luggage. The bathroom is even smaller, it's hard to turn around in the bathroom without hitting anything.

Dear Matthias S,

Thank you very much for your review.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed our location and that you had a good nights sleep!

Our rooms can indeed be considered as 'cute'. But with so much to do right at your doorstep you shouldn't spend to much time in the room anyway, except of course for the great sleep as you had.

Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future!

Best regards,
Dennis Rullens

Having stayed here plenty of times I was hoping our latest stay would be better being october.my main concern with this hotel was been tropical heat throughout the hotel. Air con does not work,is noisy and being above train station you can not open windows. Beds are comfortable but due to heat you can't sleep. Previous visits have been mid summer so I didn't expect same this time.bathroom was a little smelly although clean and spacious. Next time 3weeks time, we won't stay here.

Dear Elchiefra,

Thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the comfort of our beds and our location.

Sorry to hear that the temperature in the room didn't meet your expectations. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the inconvenience. Getting the room temperature right should be possible all year round. Depending on the outside temperature you might need some assistance in finding the correct way to adjust the temperature. You can always contact our reception desk for assistance.

Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future.

Best regards,

Stayed here for three nights in August. Right next to the main train station, Amsterdam Centraal, and very convenient for canal boat trips and buses, as well as for the Passenger Terminal for cruise ships departing from there, although quite a walk if you have luggage (Taxi €9). The room was tiny (typical Ibis) and ours overlooked the train tracks (the hotel is built right over the train station!), but if you closed the window it was very quiet, and there is air conditioning. The room had a safe and there is a coffee station in the lobby (for a fee). (We did not have breakfast for €16). The free Wifi was OK. The reception staff were very helpful and there was also a separate person on duty at the tour desk to help with bookings or just information. We took the combi hop-on-hop-off canal boat and bus ticket for two of the days, which was great. The trams run late at night, after the hours of the canal boats and tourist bus.

We were allocated room 308 which overlooked the train lines and as expected, you could hear the trains. This didn't bother as much but it might be too noisy for some. Rooms were small and fitted with basic essentials. We were able to get our hands on a kettle which is a bonus.

The location was good - right next to the station which was super convenient and a short walk from a bustling city.

I have stayed here before. Centrally located clean and convenient but with small cells for rooms the location has made up for the simple rooms.

But - if you are travelling on business - don't check in here before they have sorted out their internet connection. The wifi from my room was slooooow. Nothing wrong with the signal strength - just their cheap connection. When I explained to the front desk they immediately gave me a network cable which I connected to the outlet in my room - but there was no internet at all available via the cable.

Dear Carl Erik E,

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.
The size of the room can be considered as 'cute', which is often the case in Amsterdam.

I apologize for the bad internet connection. If the hotel is fully booked and all the guests are using the wifi it is slower. Concerning the network cable, normally this should work. I have informed the maintenance department concerning both issues and they will check with the internetprovider.

Once again, thank you for your feedback and hopefully we can welcome you again in the future.

Best regards,
Pascalle Bijvoet
