“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This hotel is well situated near everything from the train station to the main tourist attractions. We stayed for one night and we didn't use the transportation at all. every thing is walking distance. it is located on the Singel canal in a safe and quiet area. The hotel is Far enough from the red district street which could be little scary for some people. The room is very good as a space, cleanliness and calmness. I liked the area very much and there are restaurants and food corners around with very good prices (actually there is a fish corner that has a very delicious fish sandwiches).
The only thing that I disliked is the staff, nothing but they seemed non willing to help. Wi-Fi signal is very poor and disconnect every few minutes.

Room Tip: take a room with a view on the canal it is very lovely especially at night

Stayed there with a friend , he got a bronchial infection and needed a dr. The young lady working the desk fond him a Dr. Nearby and made an appt for him. Dr. Gave him some prescriptions which I filled. I have stayed here numerous occasions and like the location , near Central station and tram line. Free WiFi and European breakfast. Rooms are smallish as expected for the reasonable rates. If raining they have loaner umbrellas.

This was a small hotel about 5 minutes walk from the railway station situated in a quiet street overlooking the canal.

It was close to lots of restaurants and cafes and was well served by the local trams.

The hotel was well presented, there was a good choice at breakfast and the staff were helpful.

The only downside was the room - it was clean, bright and charming with a comfortable bed, but because it was in the eaves, it had a low, sloping ceiling and was quite small

I only stayed one night in the Singel Hotel, but would go back anytime again to this place. Location is a 10 minutes walk for Central Station. The room was clean had anything I needed and for my most important it was very charming, compared to all the international hotel chains.

Also worth to mention that the staff was very friendly and helpful.
