Very nice hotel in a good location, but the bedroom was alittle tight. We likes the calm and the cleanliness of this hotel. I don't know what to tell you else!

Great location on a quiet street near all the main site in Amsterdam. This was second stay at the hotel because it had such a great location and was easy to get to from the airport on the bus (route 197 about 40 minutes to Leidsplien square-cost 4 Euros). This is a great hotel if you are traveling with a group of friends or family. They have rooms that accommodate up to 4 people and are reasonably priced! Hotel offers a nice free breakfast and the staff could not be more helpful.

Stayed here for 3 days Sept in Single room on 4th floor.. Observations as follows. LOCATION - Excellent - quiet street in a nice residential area (behind the Marriot Hotel) beside Vondlepark & 2-3 mins from Leidseplien & museum areas, 20 mins walk to Dam Sq or catch trams 1,2 or 5 from Leidsplien. STAFF - Very friendly & helpful. BREAKFAST - was OK - continental (cheese, meat, cereal, bread & tinned fruit salad, juice & coffee - would've been better with bowls of various fruit though ). ROOM - Small & compact (as are all in Amsterdam), Double bed which was comfortable, toilet / shower room, safe, 1 wardrobe, TV, Mini Bar (which I didn't use as there was a well stocked AH supermarket nearby), ceiling fan which was handy as was very humid. Bit disappointed no kettle or facility to make coffee or tea (which could be bought from reception) which would've been good & standard to me for the price paid. Cleanliness - ended up with couple of bed bug bites but that can happen in the cleanest of hotels too. SECURITY - Good - own key to get in after 12, window lock / fitting in room 37 was old & loose & could easily be broken but as room was on 4th floor, I wasn't too concerned unless Spiderman decided to break in.. VALUE - Average - disappointed but poss not the staffs fault, more website "Easytobook". Original initial price for 3 days was £169 / 197 euro, (late deal 1 day before arriving), final price (including 6% tax ) rose to 210 euro.. At hotel final price (adding 5.5% "city tax" ) rose to 233 euro / £203. I queried that 5.5% of 210 was 11.5 euro?. Staff stated that Easytobook display it wrongly & correct price was 233 euro?.. For a hotel of this standard I would normally only pay £50/55 per night Maximum so paying nearly £70 a night, after all the Easytobook "add on's" was I felt too much but time pressures meant booking was made but Easytobook should only display a correct final price & not a misleading one.. OVERALL - a nice little place in a great location but next time I would look elsewhere personally unless a better deal as hotel was not full.... Give it a try though..

The room is really small, but very clean with a mini bar fridge and a safe, maybe a bit expensive but we're in Amsterdam!
The hotel has four floors and a convenient elevator.
The breakfast offers a choice of ham, cheese, jam, chocolate, slices of bread and toast in a cozy location adjacent to a small courtyard garden.
The location is convenient, close to the center, Dam Square, VondelPark and to the main museums all within walking distance.
But the strong point of the hotel is definitely the kindness of the staff and the sweet cat, Candy, a great traveling companion!

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights.
We booked the small double room with a small queen bed and the room was actually really small, but after all quite confortable. Spaces within the room is pretty well organized. And also the bed is not so small. It is a standard queen bed in my opinion.
The hotel is in a four floor builiding, our room was in the fourth floor, but being there the lift we did not have any problem in bringing up and down our stuff.
Breakfast is simply but quite good. A lot of salty dishes, but jam and chocolate sauce are in any case available if you want a sweet breakfast.
Staff is really excellent. Very kind and supportive. Very precise in providing suggestions and informations.
Position is optimal! All the city actractions are at walkable distance. Very close to Vondelpark, Museumplein and Leidseplein. De Jordaan, Dam square, Red Light District are reachable with a 15 minutes walk.
What else? Oh I am forgotting Snoep (I do not know how it is written, it should mean Candy) the sweet cat you can meet in the hotel corridors. She will purr by just hearing the sound of your voice talking to her.
