“A decent choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This Hotel is well-situated in the Apollolaan in Amsterdam, near the Hilton, the Bilderberg Garden Hotel and Wyndham;'s Apollo Hotel. It is 7 minutes walk from the Concertgebouw, and about 12 minutes from the Rijksmuseum. The lobby is tastefully furnished. The room I had was simply but adequately furnished, with a decent-sized bathroom. The bedroom decor was uninspiring -0 a bit of a let-down after the furnishings in the hotel lobby.
I didn't stay for Breakfast (€16.50) - for a breakfast costing a lot less (€11.50), walk to the Concertgebouw cafe which opens at 8 a.m.

Went to surprise a friend for his Birthday and chose this hotel as it is just around the corner from where he lives. Myself and a friend stayed for 2 nights and the hotel was ideal, we had a lovely room overlooking the courtyard. The bed was very comfortable a lot softer than i am used to but lovely. The room the was plenty big enough for the 2 of us, as we were only staying 2 nights the wardrobe was plenty big enough, may have been a problem if we had been there for the week. The shower over the bath was very efficient and it was good to have toiletries supplied as it saved us taking them. All staff were very friendly but i have to give a special mention to Sam ( or Samah which is his proper name ) he went out of his way for us and is a real asset to the hotel. I would definately return

Room Tip: We were in room 30 which was on the 1st floor and overlooked the courtyard and had a small balcony

While the hotel is only a few minutes walk from the reasonably frequent trams, it was a little too far out from the city centre for our liking.

It is in a nice location, with shops, restaurants and bars situated within 500 metres. The twin room was a little bit small for two, though adequate for one. Thank goodness for the (small) lift as the stairs were steep. The breakfasts (€16.50 a head) were typical Dutch fare, and after the first day we chose to go to a cafe round the corner instead, where we got a better breakfast for much less.

If I had been staying here for business I would have been annoyed by:-
1) The lack of powerpoints for laptops etc. at the rather small desk.
2) Wi-fi was free for basic internet connectivity, but not free if you wanted to use it for large files/videos
3) The safe is not big enough for a 13" screen laptop.

Overall we had a perfectly comfortable stay, but would perhaps try somewhere a little closer to the City Centre next time.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are very quiet and you can comfortably leave the windows open at night without bei...

The hotel is on a lovely leafy street in the Old South near the museum quarter, just down the road from a tram stop that reguarly runs between the Zuid station (for access to the Airport) and Central Station. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The rooms were slightly on the small size as mentioned in other reviews, however they were not in my opinion too small- our room was more than adequate, well appointed with a lovely bathroom and a nice view over the courtyard.
If you're looking for something in a quiet location this hotel is highly recommended!

Nice hotel but too far from the heart of the city. Wi fi is not free, strange for a 4 star hotel.
Bed confortable but with a separation in the middle...not really nice for couples.
Not expansive because of a special offer.
Good for a business trip but not for a romantic week end.

Our 3 night stay was very uncomfortable, bed and room way too small for what is meant to be a 4 star hotel. I'd not stay here again and advice you to pick a different place if you can.

Oh, important ps. The free internet is limited to 256kbps (ancient speed) unless you pay, same for free tv channels, not even bbc 1.. you had to pay for that...
