“Reasonable price, great location for museums”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

As 4 women travelling together this was one of the few hotels that could accommodate 4 people in a single room. It was right on the bus route to the airport (number 197 from stand B11 every 15 mins Concert Hall stop). Also tram 16 into the centre. It was 3 mins walk to the Van Gogh museum and 5 to the Rijksmuseum. 20 mins into the main Damrak area, passing by a great little deli or 2, and lots of lovely unique shops.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was extensive with lots of choice.

Room Tip: not all 4 bedded rooms have 4 separate beds, our had a double and twin

The hotel is newly refurnished, rooms are quite small but enough if you don't intend to spend the whole day inside. Ask for a standard room, not a small room. Breakfast is good, large choice. Located next to concert hall, van gogh museum and rijskmuseum. Tram nr.16 has a stop in front of the hotel, and will take you to Dam Square in 10 mins and Central Station in 12-15 mins. The area is wonderful, sorrouded by houses made of bricks.
Rooms could be bigger, but regarding the fact that it is an old private residence, rooms are ok. Breakfast room cand get sometimes crowdy, in the summer there is a nice garden in the back. We had nothing to hang our towels in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Small rooms are very small. Try the standard ones.

This place is pretty nice, enjoying a nice location close the the museum square. In addition to the museums, there are good restaurants and bars nearby, and the tram right outside goes directly to the city center. I had a single room, which was quite small, but reasonably priced with a comfortable bed. The water heater with free coffee and tee was a nice bonus. The bathroom was small but modern and clean, with a shower but no tub, a fairly reliable hot water (temperature jumped around a bit, which you don't really expect in a modern shower, as temperature-adjusting valves are pretty universal these days).
The only major objection was the thin walls. My room was on the 3rd floor (4th floor counting the street level) and I had neighbors on either side, and I could hear them quite clearly when they were talking in their rooms. Luckily they were not very noisy, but if you get some noisy neighbors you will definitely be sharing their experiences. There was some street noise (including trams), but the double pained windows did a pretty good job of blocking this out... could be a problem in the summer though, as I don't think the place has AC.
Overall, considering the price, it was a very decent hotel.

Room Tip: Half of the rooms face the courtyard and are probably quieter than those that face the street.

We took the room at the entrance, with the big windows to outside. There is not too noisy, the room is super comfortable, you have a water-heating inside with tes and coffe. the batroom is super nice.
The breakfast is very complete, for all tastes! The location is quite fine,with a good pizzeria nearly.
The staff is super friendly and they speak several languages.

Firstly, what you think of this hotel depends largely on what you paid. I paid in total about 80 Euros a night for a single room, room 22. Looking on Booking.com it was about the best I could get for Oct 9th for 3 nights, judging by Trip Advisor reviews of others. Room 22 is fine as a single room except for the noise of the traffic/trams. It is at the front of the hotel. Decor is clean and smart. It is non-smoking though there is an outside area downstairs where you can smoke. The staff are helpful and professional. Breakfast at 7 Euros is good. The location is very good right next to the Van Gogh and Stedeiljk museums and on tram route 16 to Dam square and the central area. The stop into town is 100 metres up the road. The one back stops right outside. Bus 197 runs from rank B11 at the airport for 4 euros and stops 100 metres up the road from the hotel. It strikes me that hotels in Amsterdam are not cheap unless you share in a dormitory. If money was no object I would go back.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are noisy

Upon arrival around 21h30, kids were tired, but we still got an extensive (way too long) explanation about checking in at a hotel (as if we never had done that before!?). Even worse: when entering the room (first floor), the heating was still on (as max stand) with the excuse "it's cold outside". I estimate the room temperature was about 30°C. The fan was not useful (very noisy), nor was opening the window (people smoking at ground level).
When taking a bath the next morning, it turned out the bath plug was missing....
For 330 EUR a night, this hotel is certainly not value for money!
And yes, staff was "quite" friendly, but... it gets you nowhere.

Room Tip: Wouldn't be surprised if none of the rooms have air conditioning...

Very centrally located hotel at a very sharp price. Our room, # 25, was very smallish but still well decorated and had a nice bathroom, nothing wrong with it for 1 night.....wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay. Located conveniently near the Vondelpark, near the museums and near PC Hooftstraat for some luxurious shopping using the money you saved on the hotel...:-)

Room Tip: # 25 is very small but quietly located at the back of the hotel
