“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I've stayed at this Hotel a few times now. Its affordable, with decent rooms, friendly helpful staff and a perfect location. Very close to the flower markets and the shops on Kalverstraat. Plenty of places to eat and grab a dink nearby as well, in Rembrandt Square. My husband and I also had dinner at Senses, the restaurant at the Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful of the 7 course Chef's menu. Would recommend a stay here.

Easy to find hotel with excellent staff and facilities ,good location for moving about in Amsterdam .We upgraded to a larger room on arrival with a small payment which was worth the money .Free tea and coffee down stairs with a coffee machine in the bedroom ,important in a morning and to true yorkshire people !! Modern fittings and fixtures ,good choice with the self service breakfast ,would we go back ,definitely .

Room Tip: It,s on a busy road ,so the higher the floor you are further away from the traffic .A back or inside...

This is a small hotel that feels like a family concern. The staff are friendly and helpful and it is centrally located. It is an easy walk to most parts of Amsterdam. I did not recall being bothered by any noise.

Very nice hotel, well located. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We were minus a plug and a bedside light and they were promptly fixed. Rooms only have a fan no proper air conditioning.
We had chosen this hotel as there was nearby parking available however there was some problem with it so we were directed to another place which was a long way away,difficult to find and time consuming. When we left we took a taxi back with our luggage to avoid crowds and traffic.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room away from the front busy street.

Staff is terrific, location is good, but rooms on the street are extremely noisy. Nonetheless, we enjoyed our stay and the amenities were great. We didn't try breakfast - seemed a lot to pay for the morning meal.

Room Tip: Pick an inside room if you don't care about view. View wasn't all that great anyway!

Green Features: Excellent idea and much appreciated. Wish more hotels would do this.

Wow, the staff was so helpful, upbeat and friendly.....they really made the experience special. We really appreciated the Nespresso machine in the room and free coffee in the lobby. Very nice rooms, the hotel is convenient to everything Amsterdam has to offer.

Cosy hotel, like the modern design and the welcome coffee. The room is actually small but all is included. Great location, close to everything. The restaurant downstairs is pricey but quality is there. I think some rooms were under renovation when I was there. It is indeed a good deal.

If you reach it from the airport, do NOT take the the shuttle (took me more than 1 hr + 15' waiting, you can walk to central station in comfortable 15' and take a train, there's one every 5-10' and is way cheaper and faster).

Solo traveller, 2 nights, August 2014.
