“Very good location, renovated recently, modernised rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Just a few minutes from the Central station, this hotel offers totally renovated nice rooms. The room where we stayed was not too big, but still very nice. Floors and rooms are uniquely decorated with colourful kitsch art and strange colours. Everything is very clean. Service was OK, nothing to complain. Breakfast offering is adequate but a little limited. However, finding something this nice, this close to the station with a reasonable price is not easy. Wifi worked beautifully.

The hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the Central railway station. There are nice restaurants around, for all tastes. The rooms are recently refurbished, and each floor has a unique colour. The choices of colours and decorations are quite odd but fit well in the overall atmosphere. The rooms are small but clean, and the jacuzzi in the bathroom an absolute delight.

Stayed at this hotel on a business trip to Amsterdam

very convient location, close to the central station, and loads of resturants and bars immediately outside the hotel.

Check in was quick and efficient, staff friendly

Rooms are clean and well decorated,

Breakfast buffet is excellent

Hotel is a bit expensive, but probably par for the course in the centre of town, all round good stay in the centre of amsterdam

The hotel is conveniently located to many of the tourist sites and the train station. The staff were very accommodating in storing our luggage as we arrived early in the day. After some site seeing, we eventually got to our room on the 3rd floor and the huge purple mirror facing us as we exited the elevator was a big surprise - that, along with all the Marilyn Monroe pictures, was at such odds with the rather dark, heavy, but cosy atmosphere of the main floor. The room overlooked the road with trams, buses, and car traffic. There were no amenities beyond the one soap container that apparently does everything and toilet tissue. When I asked for Kleenex and a face cloth, I was told there was a market around the corner for such things.
The bed was comfortable and the cold breakfast was quite good.

Room Tip: Try to book a room away from the Main Street out front.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

i recently stayed at the hotel while in Amsterdam. the hotel was conveniently place for a city break. close to all attractions and town centre. easy to get around from the hotel. the hotel lobby was nice, clean and cosy. the staff were friendly and polite and eager to assist. the breakfast was good actually above the standard. unfortunately the room i was given was not up to standard of a deluxe double. i had specifically gone for this hotel after seeing the rooms on the internet. i have had experience of cramped poky little attic rooms in amsterdam before. well i got the same again, small cramped two single beds pushed together with a hole in the middle sheets that didnt fit. low beams over the bed which made it impossible to sit up comfortably. only one bedside table. no tea or coffee making facilities or water.
its such a pity that this room spoiled my stay there as the rest of the hotel was fine.

i wont be going back there.

Room Tip: do not accept the poky little attic room if that is not what you want
