Stayed here with my wife.
Lovely hotel in a nice area.
Easy 5/10 minutes walk from Centraal Station. Easy to find.
Great view from rooms on the river.
Stairs are a little steep.
Note that if they haven't mentioned that breakfast is included do not assume. But for €7.50 I couldn't argue with the Cold Cut Buffet with all the usual bread, cheeses, Juices etc.
Only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Red Light District and close to Tram Stops.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Location is good for some nice restaurants and bars around the Jordaan Area.
To get a feel of what the area is like see the following links:
The room is cosy but the bathroom is more of a 2 star rating at best. No shower curtain so water pretty much goes all over the bathroom. Other than that the room itself is fine and comfortable with a 3 to 3.5 star rating.
We had room 321 which is the one pictured on their website. I have attached photo's from the room to give you and idea. Apologies for putting the pics of the bathroom up but would rather you all see what it is like prior to getting there.
Service was great.
Free internet access. We checked in online and they were happy to print out our boarding passes free which was a nice touch as some places I have stayed at charge it to your room or even charge you at the business centre.
I gave a 3 for the Room due to the bathroom. The room itself nice.
All in all I would be more than happy to stay ere again.
