My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Nes on 9/13/13 to 9/16/13. The Hotel is located in a good location in the inner city of Amsterdam about a 20 minute walk from the Centraal train station and about a 10 minute tram ride away. The hotel is clean and the staff was excellent. Our room was extremely very small and we paid a very very high premium to get the one we were assigned. Breakfast was 10 Euro a person if we wanted to purchase it daily. We declined and stepped out for breakfast each morning to some of the wonderful cafes and confectionaries. When we booked the room, we knew the price would be extremely high because of the International Broadcasting Conference (IBC) that was being held in Amsterdam during our stay. We had no choice for our scheduled itinerary. Everyone in Amsterdam was renting something it seemed to get a piece of the action for incoming travelers from around the world. From their own apartments and homes to the shantiest of so called rooms. We didn't want to stay outside the innercity or near Schipol Airport either as daily commutes would have cost too much and defeated the purpose for us. We had a great view from our 4th floor room of a portion of the city. The bathroom in our room had a shower in it that sprayed directly on the floor where the toilet and sink cabinet were located, making showering a tad difficult because of water on the floor everywhere even when you drew the shower curtain. We dealt with it fine though. We loved Amsterdam and will go back one day, but make sure we miss any conferences. Internet Wi-fi was a pay service except in the lobby area, and in-room safes were a pay for service as well. We had no a/c in the room but didn't need it as we just opened a window for cool air at night. We slept well. This is a no frills Hotel, but it is nice in it's own way. It is an older building. I will rate the "value" as poor in the rating survey ONLY because we did not have any choices to really pick from during the IBC conference weekend as other places were booked to full capacity and Hotel Nes was doing what supply and demand warrants during fruitful times. So, please don't read into that rating for anything other than our particular stay. For us, Hotel Nes sufficed and was all about location, location, location, to best use our time to see Amsterdam. We recommend the Hotel Nes. Overall, we had a good stay there and would consider staying there again if the nightly rate demonstrated to be better during our scheduled travel.
