“Small but well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

I had an overnight in Amsterdam and booked this hotel based on location and price. It scored well on both accounts. The staff are lovely and helpful, even loaning me an outlet adapter for my cell phone charger. It's true the single room is incredibly small but the bed was comfortable and the decor was very nice. It was obvious the bathroom had been recently remodeled and was modern and stylish. The breakfast (included in my rate) was really nice, even including some meats and boiled eggs along with pastries, toast and espresso.

The stairs are super steep and narrow but that's Amsterdam and, I think, part of the charm!

I decided to stay another 2 nights and wish I could have stayed here but, unfortunately, it was booked so I moved a few doors down to the Hotel Nadia (same owner but very different).

Room Tip: I would recommend a room in the back (facing back of other buildings) as I imagine it's quieter.

Excellent location and service ! There is indeed no elevator but the stairs are ok and when reaching the reception we received a free drink !! Very nice receptionist and very good breakfast.

Only 3 minutes walk to Dam sqaure and the centre of Amsterdam. Rooms are renovated and clean, very nice !! Will not look any further next time for our guests, this is the best hotel in Amsterdam !

The Clemens hotel is very easy to find walking from the central station and by tram, it`s close to the Rijksmuseum and the Dam.The hotel in itself is nice and very clean and the staff is charming. I remember the excellent breakfast. If I go back to Amsterdam, I`ll certainly go back there.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Clemens Hotel. Excellent location. The staff is warm and friendly, they helped us with directions and answered all of our questions. Within walking distance of many of the Amsterdam sites. Room was small but cozy and very clean, the steps are steep, but not a problem, (we only had to carry up and down a carry on size suitcase.) I imagine a heavy suitcase could be a hindrance. Breakfast was very good with a good enough selection of fresh choices. Breakfast area was quaint and relaxing, the two cats that come visit you while you are eating add to the ambiance. A great stay for the price and would stay again if we ever visit Amsterdam.

This was a really pleasant stay in a friendly, professional and extremely comfortable hotel. The room was not large, and the inclusion of an extra bed didn't help, but this was a minor issue. In other respects the room was perfect - clean, well appointed and with an excellent shower. Breakfast selection is not huge, but everything that was provided was fresh and high quality. The best aspect of this hotel, apart from it's obviously top location, is the staff - all were helpful, professional and friendly. Leaving luggage well before check-in was no problem; likewise at the end of the stay we could safely leave all our belongings until we were ready to depart Amsterdam on the night train. We will certainly return to Clemens.
