4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I have stayed here many trips and whilst the room is small it has all that I need as I don't spend much time in the room other than to sleep. Location is great and is good value for money. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The best part of this hotel is the location in Amsterdam central. My room was small, but clean and well kept with a seperate shower. The price was reasonable and included breakfast. However if you are hoping to get any sleep you may want to choose a place that is not over a bar, and it the middle of the Red Light district. What it lacks in peace it makes up for in excellent locale, and vibrant nightlife.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

I given this hotel 5 stars based on the money it cost to stay here. Could not wish for a better location and the cost also covered en-suite and breakfast, these are difficult to get in this price bracket. I emailed beforehand to ask for a canal view and was lucky enough to get one. Ok the bedroom was small, as was the en-suite but to have the luxury to be right in the centre on the canal side you couldn't fault it. The bar next door, Trinity Bar, also sold cheap good beer and served excellent coffee. Would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This hotel is set in an old building, so has steep winding staircase. We were on the top floor, which for us was absolutely fine & we loved that it was a typical Amsterdam building. When we arrived our room hadn't been cleaned, but as we weren't planning on staying in it didn't matter too much. We just left our bags & informed them of it on our way out. When we got back later it had been sorted. The entrance is on an intercom system so it's secure & we felt very safe there. We enjoyed a fresh breakfast which was being regulary re-stocked as things ran low. Located in the red light district, just around the corner from the coffee shops & De Prael (go to De Prael for live music & good beer). We'd definately stay here again.
