“Not worth the price”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I can't believe the price they charge for this dump! It's ridiculous! Stayed only one night but that was too long. Don't know how they stay listed on Trip Advisor. Found the place dark, dingy and in terrible condition. The garbage bin in the bathroom hadn't even been emptied. The only good thing I have to say about the room is at least the sheets and pillow cases were clean. The photos on Trip Advisor must have been enhanced.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Lost 200€ from my suitcase and came back to the room to discover my bag was placed in the wrong way from where I have left it. The person that took my money couldn't have been an outsider, since the thief didn't take the whole batch. The thief was smart to reduce the after effects of police reports etc.. It was also my fault not having a lock to my bag. Lesson learnt.

We booked this hotel for a reasonable price quite last minute for a summer weekend in Amsterdam. We were really happy with the location, a few minutes from the Vondelpark and not far at all from Leidseplein and the lively areas around there. The Jordaan, our favourite and very pretty area, was not far away either and by bike it was very quick to get anywhere. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was absolutely huge, I was really surprised as usually on city breaks we have to climb over the bed to get to the bathroom. But there was loads of room here and a balcony too. The decor was very grand and as I've said, everything was a little worn. The bathroom had marks all over the walls and the duvet cover had a stain on. Also the room smelt faintly of smoke but there were huge floor to ceiling windows and balcony doors so no trouble at all airing it out. Breakfast was ok but would not pay extra. However I think for the money we got a lot and there were only a few small things that we didn't like so much. I enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam and the hotel was a decent base for this.

This is a small hotell with simple but clean rooms. Some with shower and toilet. If you're on a budget and still want to live close to Leidseplein and Vondelpark.
Quiet part less than 5 minutes to buses and trams.
A good breakfast is served after 8 so if you have an early meeting - they will try to open early.

We spent two nights here in October. The location was perfect for us. It was near the museums, leidseplein, and any other sights we wanted to see. We took a tram to and from the train station, but walked the rest of the city and liked being able to return to the room before dinner.
The room was large and clean, if a bit dated. We loved the fireplace and high ceilings. The bathroom was recently re-done with a great tub for soaking after walking all day.
Breakfast was typical, bread, cheese and egg with juice and coffee or tea. We ate in a sunroom, very pleasant.
The stairs were as expected - high and steep. No problem for us, but not everyone would be able to climb with luggage. The staff allowed us to store our luggage the last day.
Good value for this city.

After navigating the infamous twisting narrow stairs up to our room we found our room to be wonderful from the view to having our own bathroom. The only thing that keeps me from rating the room at 5 stars was the fact the bed had a seriously hard, wood divider running the length of it resulting in us sharing a rather tight half of the bed. The staff was excellent and the room was very clean. Vondel Park and the Leidsplein square where you can get anything to eat, drink, or smoke were literally only a 5 and 10 minute walk away respectively. The hotel can be a little noisy after the late night crowd returns but It is still a great place to stay and when I return to Amsterdam I will be staying at the Park! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Vondel Park / Leidsplein area.

We booked this hotel via the Amsterdam Tourist Information bureau after arriving in Amsterdam a day earlier than originally planned and without a hotel reservation. The room price and quality were comparable to the hotel we had booked in Paris although we found out at the hotel they had no lift and the stairs in Amsterdam are notoriously steep, narrow, uneven and sloping. The hotel overall was nice and we had an ensuite room with actually 3 separate beds although we only needed 2.

There were two very large windows with drapes that looked out onto the street below. There was also a table fan that came in handy in the humid weather. There was a nice size tv with many channels and many in English as well that came in handy during the late evening when we were too wiped out to walk more but it was still light out and we couldn't sleep.

The beds were firm but comfortable and the linens were clean but simple. The hotel is located adjacent to the Vondelpark and only a few blocks from the main tourist area of the Leidesplein so the location is convenient. There is a tram (#1) stop nearby and you can catch trams also from the Leidesplein a few minutes away. The Museumsplein is a 5 minute walk and the canal boat tours are also nearby and worth a look at. Overall I would recommend the hotel but it is not for those challenged by steep stairs. The room price via the tourist bureau was 80 Euro per night which included a simple breakfast of juice, coffee, toast with jams, hard boiled egg, and ham and cheese slices. The breakfast was sufficient for our needs.

  • Liked — Great location and large ensuite room with many english tv channels
  • Disliked — No elevator and very steep narrow stairs
