A great Boutique Hotel in a nice quiet location, next to a park. Very easily found and easy access to the trams which gets you anywhere worth seeing. The trams are located just about 3 blocks away. Great Breakfast. What's even better, is the staff! Hello Marten! The entire staff was all smiles. No air conditioner. It was a very hot summer. But the windows opened. Some flies came in because there was no screens. That was all overlooked because the friendly and helpful staff more than made up for any "minor" flaws. The price is very reasonable. You will certainly pay more and get less in a centrally located position in Amsterdam, say near Dam Square. But why would you trade in on this great place for something less? This is Amsterdam and all locations are easy travel areas because the entire city is basically one tram after the other.

As a frequent traveler to AMS I tried this hotel. Location is very good, decoration is modern and nice. My room was large very nice and comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast was nice as well, breakfast room a bit small in the basement! Price quality ration is very good with the rate I got.

We were traveling with a friend in a wheelchair, which caused some problems initially when the taxi left us at the front door facing a series of steps to the lobby. Staff members immediately saw the problem, came to our rescue, helped our friend get up the stairs along with all our luggage. Fortunately, the hotel does have operating lifts at the lobby level. Throughout our stay, employees behind the front desk and at the bar were friendly, helpful and upbeat. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast buffet excellent. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be close to the museums in the area.

I’ve stayed in this hotel for several nights and the good points are:

- Excellent location near museums, posh shops, tram and bus stops, canal cruise stop etc. – very clean, quiet and nice area of the town
- Clean, nice décor and practical rooms
- Breakfast – good selection of cheeses, hams, breads and omelette or scrambled eggs made to order
- PC with an internet access

Now the bad points:
- Quite small room, but that was ok, as I didn’t spend much time in my room anyway
- The room can get stuffy/hot – as when you open the window it finishes just above the bed mattress, which means direct draft; the window is huge and there is no option for ventilation
- Noise coming from upstairs – creaky floorboards and noise/bangs coming from the breakfast room directly beneath my room – moving chairs etc. – it woke me up during the night and early morning every day and that was with wearing earplug
- The breakfast staff are not overly friendly – had to ask for the omelette every day while other guest seemed to be offered omelette or scrambled eggs straight away without asking
- Not sure about the hygiene of the breakfast staff – they touch everything (cheeses, breads, hams etc.) with their bare hands while doing other stuff in the kitchen and not using any utensils or gloves
- TV – the sound was tinny

And last evening I saw a little mice running down the corridor by the reception – very cute!

First, how to get there by public transit: train from AMS airport to Centraal Station (<20 min, EUR5.00), then tram #2 from Centraal to Van Baerlestraat stop (<10 min, EUR7.50 for 24h unlimited travel on buses and trains), then walk 2 short blocks. Alternatively, there is an express bus #197 to/from airport (reportedly 30 min, EUR5.00) which stops near the hotel, operated by a different company from the trams, but we didn't use it.

It's approx 40 min scenic walk between Centraal and hotel.

Reception was very friendly, allowed us to check in early at 11am since there was a room available. They also held our luggage for us after check out so we could roam for the whole day.

Small, nice, boutique hotel located on a quiet residential street. I believe it to be an old apartment building which has been converted into a hotel. No A/C and little air circulation made it hard to sleep during the warm summer night. My 4th floor room was facing the park and there was minimal street noise on a Thursday night, even with the windows open. We could, however, hear the slamming doors of the rooms next to us very clearly - rooms are clustered together in a way doors are literally a foot apart from each other.

Room was decorated nicely, small wall mounted flat screen TV, very little space to maneuvre as the room was oddly shaped. Bathroom had a small combined shower/toilet area separated only by a flimsy curtain. Small rooms are characteristic of Europe, so not surprised there.

Great location for museums and close to public transit to get back to the more central area for dining and shopping. There's a nice area nearby as well with lots of restaurants.

Overlooks a beautiful park where you can have a picnic or sit by the pond and read a book or feed the ducks.

There's a great bakery open until 6pm around the corner called Simon Meijssen where you can get breakfast, snack or light lunch.

Overall it was a good choice for location and wanting a smaller boutique feel.

This is a very cute and stylish Boutique hotel, in a very posh and quiet area by Volderpark and the museum district. The hotel is small but has a very fashionable, with a cosy reception area with modernistic and comfortable bar area. It is built in a typical holland building what makes your stay meo real.
The stayed in for 5 days in a business trip, and the staff made me always feel very nice and welcoming, specially at the breakfast restaurant, where the ladies were always asking me how I was.
The room I stayed in was small and the bathroom also, but was stylish and cosy with a very nice view for a back terrace. Breakfast was basic, but nice.
This hotel is not right at the centre of Amsterdam, but is in a walking distance of about 20mins through very nice areas full of restaurants.

I highly recommend either for a business trip or for a romantic trip.

Room Tip: Can't really help. I stayed in a very cute room but was very small. I would recommend to check w...
