5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Had a great stay! Perfect located in the the heart of Amsterdam. Only negative thing everyone agreed on was that the pillows was too big :) otherwise everything was perfect. Very friendly and professional staff.

The hotel was in s good central location. Our room which was a splendid city room. We chose a room at the back to be quieter which proved a good choice as we were there for Kings Day! Only view was over a car park but view at front of hotel not attractive either. Bedroom was fairly small but the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Nice towels and robes although toiletries were sparse and not refilled on a daily basis. Fan in bathroom non existent. Good tea and coffee making facilities.
Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful.
Good choice at breakfast although restaurant too small to cope with guests so often queues and food, cutlery running out. Breakfast needs better overseeing to ensure constantly refilled and hot.
I think overall hotel was satisfactory but expensive

The room was rather small, got a large bruise from the bed. Odd shower,otherwise comfortable providing I didn't want to watch TV in bed.
Hotel staff very helpful but what wasn't helpful was not being able to have breakfast. Long queue which didn't look like it was going anywhere and with limited time in Amsterdam left without even a cup of tea. Rather stressed restaurant staff.

The hotel is in a great location you can walk everywhere. The staff were very friendly and professional. The hotel itself is very nice and well kept and the rooms are modern and well finished. It is a very well run hotel. I would recommend it to anyone and can't wait to go back.

Beautiful hotel really well located beside rembrandt square and short walk away from Amsterdam square. Room was great maybe a little small but who cares really for a city break it was a nice room! Staff were so attentive and we loved the new barman whose name ive forgotten, maybe Rahmad. But all the staff were fantastic. Loved our stay here
