“Well situated hotel in charming quarter of Amsterdam.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2010

Friendly, helpful staff. Other guests friendly and considerate. Family atmosphere (we took 15 yr old son & 11 yrd old daughter). Breakfast served us well - good coffee! Our room was lovely - we had the one with the huge window and balcony. We only had a shower - no bath, which was a bit of a shock, but it was a decent shower. Very clean. Albert Hijn (supermarket) is very close. If you work out how to use the trams(!), the tram stop is very close to the hotel. Line 5 takes you to Central Station with Leidesplein on the way. The hotel is really close to Rijks & Van Gogh and the (seasonal) outdoor skating. (Rijks museum are still charging full rate (about 14 E each) but over half the museum is being refurbished.). Take your laptop and you can login at the hotel - which is quite helpful for airport info etc. This is a really great end of town to base yourself in - the haute coutrure shops are nearby too - albeit for window shopping. This area is a real part of city life - children's schools and playgrounds are integrated all around. I'm so relieved we didn't base ourselves near the central train station which is close to the red light district. Amsterdam is curiously permissive. Everyone seems to be smoking cannabis and sex is, apparently, a commodity.Permissive to everyone that is, except the poor pedestrian, who fears for his life crossing the road. If the bikes don't get you the trams will! The bicycle is king here. And you can hire those too from the hotel.Given the proximity to the Vondel Park that would probably be a great thing to do in the Spring/Summer. Thanks to the staff at the hotel who helped to make it a very pleasant and successful half term stay.

A site I used for my trip to Amsterdam: www.timeinamsterdam.com
Really convenient, the Hotel was great and in such a quiet area but it was in the city center. Great staff and rooms!

The room was clean and warm, although rather small (but apparently that's de rigour in Amsterdam). Breakfast was good, and the service was friendly and helpful. Free internet and printer usage was a real bonus. Location was great, on a smart street right next to the Van Gogh museum.

The best hotel I have ever stayed. The staff is so kind and helpful.
I was impressed by the early breakfast that was served only for us (six people) in the little bar at the lobby. The gentlemen of the night shift at the reception served the breakfast to us. I was impressed by his kindness. He was like the best grandfather to me.

We are a family of four, and enjoyed the large room. Breakfast was standard European style - bread, cheese, cold cuts, cereal, croissants. Bathroom was fine and clean, there was a pacth on the wall that could have used a touch up, certainly nothing serious.

Very little street noise - it seems to be a quiet, residential part of town.

Location is excellent for Rijks and van Gogh.

Bought discounted cruise tickets, and certainly enjoyed the cruise, which was only a short walk from the hotel.
