“Superb location,hospitable and budget friendly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We were part of a group of 3 couples and booked our rooms through Booking.com. We were greeted warmly and check-in was fast and easy. They were able to accommodate my request for a room with a bath tub. The desk staff was very informative as to directions and things to see and do. The manager even brought us ice for our little "Happy Hour" in the small room adjoining the lobby - we were drinking our own liquor and enjoying some appies purchased at a nearby grocery store. The rooms were very clean but decorated sparely and quite a while ago! The linens were good but the bed very soft - uncomfortably so. We had a central room so noise wasn't an issue but the other two couples faced on the streets and were bothered by nighttime noise of revellers. The rooms were very warm, a fan was provided but it was hard to move the fan because of lack of plugs. Reading lights could be improved. The hotel is somewhat like a maze - halls leading up a few stairs, around corners, down a few stairs etc. and signage could be improved.The best part was the location. Being so close to Dam Square, the train station, the canal boats, the flower market, Anne Franke House, the art galleries, pleasant restaurants,shopping, all within walking distance was a bonus.Breakfast was very well done and we all left the breakfast room full and satisfied. The price was very reasonable especially considering the quality of the breakfast - not just pastries or bread but almost anything you can think of - even smoked salmon! Breakfasts were well above our expectations. We would be happy to stay here again and have recommended it to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a centrally located room - less noise from the street as you must have your window open!

I have stayed here before. This time I was with my wife for two nights. It is close to the Central station just by the Royal palace so very central. Amsterdam is not a large city and easy to get around on foot. We walked everywhere visiting the Rijks Museum, the West church tower and the Portugese synagogue as well as the CC music Cafe during our short visit. The price is not expensive compared with other hotels. The reception staff were friendly and helpful giving us a tourist map together with other useful information as we checked in. The room was clean and equipped with a good shower and good bed. We asked for a twin which is larger than the usual double. The room was very quiet at night even though we had the window slightly open due to it begin very hot during our visit. There was only a fan which we did not use but even so the heat was not a problem for us. The breakfast is very good with a wide choice - fruit, cheese, bread, salad or hot bacon scrambled egg, etc. Something for everyone.

Close to train, easy walk to many major sites. The staff were all very nice and helpful but the room was small and hot. Hotel provided a table fan. Guests hung out of windows to smoke, which drifted into room. Reasonable for the price as the city us very expensive.

Room Tip: Apparently there is a newer part of the hotel which is nicer.

I cannot recommend this property.
Pros- Right off Dam Square. But in a quiet spot off Dam Square.
Breakfast was more than adequate. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, salmon, tomatoes, lots of cheese and breads etc.
Spacious room with proper lighting.
Staff was mostly nice.
We stayed for 3 days and it was very quiet to sleep even with the windows open.
Cons- No AC in the middle of a very hot spell of weather.
A very basic room with no drawers for storage.
A refrig that was on it's last tour of duty that keep everything warm.
A bathroom that was horrible. The shower spayed water everywhere as much as I tried to be careful.

Room Tip: Avoid in summer.

The only good thing is the location. Don't believe that you can walk to central station in 5 minutes even without luggage. More like 15 minutes with luggage.
No air conditioning except in the hallways

Never again in summer!! This hotel doesn't have air conditioner with a room temperature about 95 degrees or higher!! And also mosquitoes!! Only one little fan for the three of us? Too bad! We tried to beat the heat with open windows but it was worst for the lot of noise in the street. The five more longer nights in a hotel in our lives!! The only pro is the location and for sure the breakfast included. They have to clean the lobby furniture it shows dirty!! The hotel needs urgent renovation!

Good location for all touristy things in Amsterdam with its close proximity to Centraal station. Good street entertainment in dam square directly beside the hotel. Rooms are basic but very clean - please note there is no air conditioning - just a small fan which was totally inadequate during this very hot spell. Do not drink in the majestic across the square when enjoying street entertainment €28 for a beer, a liqueur and sprite.....
Come out of the hotel and turn right and you are immediately in the red light district so be careful if you come here with kids
