We spent only one night but everything was much better as expected. I had been previoulsy in Amsterdam in another small hotel but I still remember the poor hygiene level of that...At Clemens you will see everything "small" but obviously someone makes it look nice and tidy. The only thing (that in fact makes me laugh) it's the tiny tiny toilet (in our case it was shared), where your legs don't have to be really long, otherwise your space is a bit tight. Breakfast buffet is also more than enough too. Receptionist attitude was also very helpful and positive.
A place I would recommend and go back. Don't get scared of the stairs when you open the door for the first time!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this quaint hotel which is centrally located in Amsterdam. The staff were wonderful and would help with tickets to museums, tours and resturants. The staff were so friendly that they made everyone feel at home. The rooms were cozy and clean along with a great breakfast. I found I was able to travel with ease to all parts of the city from this location. It is near the Tram line, Dam square, the Canal boat tour, Anne Frank house and many other ammenities.

I have been in this hotel for Easter and it really impressed me. The famous stairs will bring you to the reception where the very helpful (and polite, which you rarely find anywhere nowadays) staff will great you. You will be given brochures with discounts and 'must see' of the city - which I found lovely, so we didn't need to go to the tourist info.

A very kind man will bring your luggage up the stairs and will be preparing a lovely breakfast consisting of: croissants, cheese, ham, bread, chocolate muffins, cereals, juices (pure juice not those horrible mixes you usually find) and more. There is also a coffee machine where a good selection of warm drinks (tea, cappuccino, caffe latte) are available.

We booked a room of 6 square meters. Space was initially a bit of an issue, but after organising it became quite functional. Fortinure is new and the room is very clean (and the cleaner comes every day). TV seemed new - maybe installed a bit too high.
The bathroom was common, very clean must be said. Shower also clean and spacious. Flowers in the bathroom - nice touch.

The location is perfect, Dam Square can be reached within four minutes. Basically every top destination from the hotel is within 26 minutes (the farthest being Albert Cuyp market)

Top tips: 1. Have breakfast outside, there is a lovely terrace with flowers
2. Book in advance (there are not many rooms)

This was our second trip to Amsterdam and the first time staying at the Clemens. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We had to wait a few hours for our room to be ready on arrival and the stairs were an absolute killer (our room was on the 3rd floor) but staff were more than willing to help us with our bags. Breakfast was great just a shame the breakfast room was a little small for the amount of guests staying. We stayed in room 7 which was described as a Deluxe Double with balcony, have to admit it wasnt as good as in the picture on the website, but it is a budget hotel afterall, the shower was excellent and the bed comfortable, but the room was quite dark and the walls in need of some fresh paint, there were some lovely touches though as the staff put fresh flowers in the room daily and gave us a chocolate easter bunny as a gift on Easter Sunday.

Overall, we had a great long weekend at the Clemens, and the location is perfect for all the sights. Will definately stay there again.
