Hotel Clemens was a fantastic choice for a 3 day trip to Amsterdam. Suited us just perfectly.
The location is great. Right by Westerkerk tram stop so an easy ride to and from Dam square or the station (we got a 72hr tram card which was great value for money). But our favourite area if the trip was the Jordaan which was a very short walk around the corner. Beautiful canals and good bars and restaurants....perfect! Despite it's quite central location the hotel does not feel loud or crowded. Elevated up off the street level it was a little haven.
The rooms are small but perfectly formed. Lovely decor, clean and modern. The bathroom and rain shower were fab! One small suggestion I might have for the rooms would be an extra mirror in the bedroom? The only one was in the bathroom so I annoyed my other half when he was showering as i wanted to do my makeup! A very small point though and by no means a criticism! The room was perfect for us and the view was amazing!
Breakfast was lovely. A good selection in a nice comfortable room. Reception itself was very clean and relaxed with free hot drinks which was a nice touch. The staff were really helpful and let us leave our cases on the last day as our flight wasn't until the evening.
All in all a great stay and the perfect choice.
Thanks so much.

My heart sank when I swung open the doors of the Hotel Clemens to find a thin, near-vertical wall of stairs vanishing off into the clouds. It was like something out of a Led Zeppelin song.

I needn’t have worried.

The kind gentleman on the reception desk was down in a jiffy to help us with our bags. We had arrived a little too early to check-in, however this gent kindly took our bags into a holding room, provided us with a map of the city and then spent some time offering suggestions and advice on the what’s, when’s, where’s and how’s of Amsterdam. He also offered us a seat in the lobby and we were encouraged to help ourselves to some tea and coffee.

Mid-way through our coffee, he brought us complimentary muffins and biscuits. It was a really nice and unexpected pick-me-up after hours in transit and lots of heavy bag-pulling. As I always say, it’s the little things that make all the difference when you’re traveling.

The rooms are small, but very cosy. The beds are sublime and breakfast each morning is simple but manages to do the trick.

The hotel is in a great location, literally around the corner from Anne Frank House and less than five minutes walk from Dam Square.

If you’re looking for a nice stay, friendly service and an easy and convenient location, look no further than the Hotel Clemens!

We loved this little hotel, perfectly situated in the heart of Amsterdam literally a few minutes' walk from the Anne Frank Huis. Rooms were very small but comfortable and laid out well -- we got our best sleep of our trip here -- but those stairs two flights up to check in are not for the faint of heart (we had no problem with them, but they are not stairs our septuagenerian and octogenarian parents could handle). Nice breakfast, very nice staff, and a welcome change from chains. Highly recommended

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband this January. If you're looking for cosy, friendly with all the basics this place is perfect. It's centrally located so great for sightseeing. Very clean and tidy, nicely decorated and often had flowers out, and we found all the staff to be very courteous and helpful. The room was quite small but comfortable and had an ensuite. Good continental breakfast buffet offered in the morning. Also, our flight wasn't leaving Amsterdam until 9pm and they were quite happy to store our bags all day after we checked out which was very convenient. Overall, highly recommend as a cheap and cheerful place to stay and enjoy Amsterdam!

Hotel Clemens is a great hotel nearby “De Dam” and not far from the Jordaan. The employees are friendly and helpful. Everything is clean and well maintained. The rooms are quite small, and in room 203 isn’t space for a big suitcase. Breakfast is basic but complete. To enter the hotel, you need to climb a narrow, and quite steep staircase. For less able people this can be a problem. The hotel has 2 sweet cats which walk around freely in the lobby annex breakfast room. If you are allergic, this might be a problem.

Room Tip: I think 203 is one of the smallest rooms.

Lovely clean hotel - very impressed. Typical steep Dutch stairs to the reception & rooms so not for the infirm. Friendly staff, good location, on the whole I would stay here again. However breakfast left a lot to be desired not a lot of choice would of liked something a bit more substantial to start the day.
