“Great little hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Having stayed in a number of hotels in Amsterdam, usually chain types like The Marriott or Crowne Plaza, we booked this for a 2 night break having previously spotted it as we strolled around Amsterdam.
The rooms are small and basic but clean and serviceable and within walking distance of the station. Our twin room had a lovely canal view and unusually for most hotels you could open the window! The shower room was clean and contained a great shower in the "wet room" style.
Breakfast was included and a lovely young girl ensured that a table was cleared and prepared for us each morning. Choices included a variety of fresh breads and croissants, boiled eggs, cereals, yoghurt and a selection of sliced cheese and meat with fresh coffee.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and really made our stay special. Other reviewers have complained about the noise but we didn't experience any disturbance to our comfortable night's sleep. Will definitely return!

Its a good place, at a good price and at a good location...the rooms could be better, but the hospitality makes up for it...the wifi sucks...but all in all...its peaceful...centrally located and the staff makes sure you know how to find your way around before you leave the hotel...don't expect an out of the world experience, and the place wont disappoint...

Perfect location and good value for the money! Very helpful staff and had a fine but very small room with a view to the canal! We had a perfect vacation and the hotel was a part of that! The breakfast was a little "poor" though.

I was booked at the hotel for 2 nights, and enjoyed my stay.

The reception staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was crisp and clean, and the continental breakfast hit the spot exactly!

Plus, of course, the location in the city was excellent.

I'm looking forward to returning on a future visit to Amsterdam.

second visit and this hotel is not wearing well.......uncomfortable beds, meager breakfast, noisy front rooms onto the night scene of nearest bridge. Well located to the train station ONLY if you have a small roller bag, not any substantial luggage Well located to good restaurants. Going to look for a touch more luxury in a different hotel next time: will be worth the comfort! As Amsterdam is tolerant of the all night partying going on....and the Singel is in the middle of all that, will have to look a bit further out to a quieter neighborhood.
