“What a find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great location, easy 10 minute walk to the station. Nice breakfast and very reasonable price for quad room. Hotel was comfortable and clean with friendly staff. Right in the centre of everything bars, cafes shops etc but felt peaceful enough.
I felt safe in this hotel which as a small group of females is important. I just wish we had tea and coffee in the room but this seems to be an english thing?!

Room Tip: Top floor is good as further from road noise! Quad was excellent value and comfortable

We stayed here in early February. We had a lot of interaction with staff during booking process and questioned the lowest price guarantee promised on the hotel website. I had found a lower price online and they could not match it although very apologetic about that so we booked through travel republic instead of directly. The difference was substantial.
The hotel is located very close to the railway station and is a short walk, the room was well appointed and reception and check in seamless.
The hotel was very quiet in the evening and no traffic noise.
Breakfast was excellent and very fresh. The coffee machine was magic. We got to breakfast early so space was not a problem. Those arriving later ie after 9 had issues but were accommodated by sitting at the bar or in another room. I note on the weekend that a hen party arrived from the UK and made a racket but encountered no noise problems during the week.
The staff were really helpful. An example was our getting back to the airport. The staff person was aware of rail disruption and printed out an itinerary for us giving us several optional train times complete with platform assignments. That made it very easy to get back out there.
I will stay there again on my next visit but not at the "lowest price" guaranteed on the website.

Room Tip: Higher is better.

This is a perfect hotel to visit Amsterdam. The price was very very good, and the location is simply perfect. Three minutes to the Central Station, two minutes to Dam Square, close to everything at a walking distance.
Nice breakfast included. Charming atmosphere with a recent renewal and a trendy interiorism. Artificial chimeny with real fire to give a very nice atmosphere.
Bathroom new, clean and well equiped.
We had a problem regarding prices, linked to the cancelation of one of the guests. I announced such cancelation 5 days prior to arrival, and they wanted me to pay it (even the web page states clearly you can do it till 24hr. I had to discuss very seriously an much moore time than I had wanted to, stressing me a bit. Finally we arrived to an agreement -in the middle position- which did not make me happy, but I accepted.
The noise produced by the tram is clearly audible from the rooms even with windows closed, so take your room in the other side.
Even so, the overall perception is very good. I will come back to Sint Nicolass and this jewel city

Room Tip: Dont take the rooms on the tram facane, Close yourprice agreements clearly previously by mail

I ended up staying at Hotel Sint Nicolaas after my booking at Maggy's B&B got cancelled upon arrival. The receptionist (unfortunately I do not remember his name) was very friendly and helpful, considering I made a walk-in booking, he even offered me to view the room before deciding whether I would like to stay there or not. The rest of the staff was friendly and helpful as well.

The price was a bit steep for a budget traveler, although it might had to do with my last-minute booking. However, the location of the hotel is fantastic, 5 minutes walk from the train station, right next to the city center. The surrounding streets are busy during the day, but very peaceful at night, so you can expect a good night's sleep even if your room is on the ground floor (like ours was). The room wasn't spacious, however it was cozy, tastefully decorated, and the bed was really comfortable. The breakfast buffet was satisfactory.

We stayed here for one night for a business trip.

Great boutique hotel with lovely rooms and a great central location, right opposite the Central station.

Great breakfast and good value for money.

Limited number of rooms so book early if you don't want to be disappointed!
