“a nice spot in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I have to admiti i choose this place mostly for the price so i was not expecting too much.
But I had to change my mind once I was there.

The hotel is nice, modern and comfortable. Very close, not even 3 minutes walking, from the most important museum in town. For many people this can seem far from the real life in Amsterdam, that meant as the old town, but the connection with at least 5 diffrent tramways is great so you won't miss anything.
And, most important, you can go back sleeping to a quiet place.

The staff is friendly, the room i had was big (in fact I had a free upgrade).
the only problem, if I have to say one, is that you hear the doors closing and people living the rooms. And maybe the bathrooms, that were clean, could be a little updated.

the breakfast was good and you also can have it in a small private garden.

Room Tip: the last floor rooms, 4th floor, seem to be bigger

Hotel very close to Concertgebouw and museum square. The majority of the rooms are very small (except a double room in the courtyard, Nr 5), but everything is clean. People are very friendly. Breakfast OK. The courtyard is very nice when the sun is here.

a sad stay, perfect location but a serious sewage issue.

first hotel to request full payment up from for the three nights stay... no preview of room

Room was perfect size, great view overlooking the buildings but the smells hit us as we opened the bathroom door - had to plug over the outlets of shower and basin as the smells were unbearable to start. we realised that this maybe a temporary issue and then considered it to be the cleaning materials??

Great dining facility - good breakfast options and lovely enclosed quart yard for summer !

The room was clean and perfect a little small but on the whole had a bathroom and closet and safety box and coffee tea.The staff were very helpful and friendly.The trams were all very close to the hotel Number 16 drooped us right outside the hotel and both trams 2 and 24 were a small walk away aswell as a supermarket with everything.The breakfast was perfect each morning with a nice selection and filled you easy for a day of seeing the sights.I will be back to this hotel for sure.

Room Tip: Double room was perfect not huge but more than enough with a nice double bed and breakfast included...

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2013. Even allowing for the off-season time, price was excellent- €150 ex-breakfast. Room was small, but comfy and warm. given that it's a converted Amsterdam house, this is to be expected. Check-in/Checkout staff were helpful, courteous and friendly.

All-in-all, can't fault it at all.

Room Tip: Tram outside, so some noise until about midnight. Therefore, a higher room will be quieter.

We arrived here 8 at night on Thursday and was greeted by a guy on reception that didn't have a clue what he was doing. We had pre-booked a double room considering we were a travelling couple. Expecting this, we were so disappointed when we climbed 3 floors and found out that we were stuck in a very small room with 3 single beds. Now, considering we were so tired, we thought we would just leave it and sort it out in the morning, when a manager or somebody else more experienced was present.

We found out the night porter that was on front desk the first night had only been in Amsterdam a week and was from Hungary. Not very good management to begin with.

We went down the next morning to try and sort out what we had actually pre-booked, the superior double room, and got another room number hoping it was what we paid 371 euro for. Opened the door and it was a twin room again but slightly bigger. Their reason for putting us in these rooms is because they "overbooked". So it was a complete waste of money.

My partner and I came to experience the coffee shop culture. Being smokers ourselves, and experiencing the smoking facilities at first hand, we would not recommend this to anyone who smokes. The facilities are two wooden tables, a couple of benches and two ash trays, out in the freezing cold.

The other downside is that housekeeping staff randomly walk into your room at 11.30 in the morning, when you could be still sleeping, and start cleaning your room. Yes it's nice to have your room cleaned for you when your away on holiday but to just come in the room without knocking is just ridiculous. We got woke up every morning we were there.

However, the hotel is in a reasonably good location with a bank machine 200 yards away and an underground supermarket that has everything you need.

All in all it was a different experience, I will be returning to Amsterdam, just not to this hotel.
