“Great Budget Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Stayed at this hotel unintentionally as it was part of the DFDS deal from Newcastle, wasn't expecting a much from this hotel was supposed to be 2* - it was much better than that in my opinion! The hotel was small but comfortable, the staff were very pleasant and the hotel itself was located 2 minutes away from the nearest tram stop, providing easy access to the City as well as the Amsterdam Arena.

The Hotel is located very close to Rijksmuseum and nearby Tramstation to get to central Amsterdam and Centraal Station. We were a family of three with our 15 months old son. The rooms are fairly small and so is the elevator but they are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative, although we could not check-in before 14:00 hours cause the room was supposedly not ready. The value for money is very good and I would book here again.

I stayed here for three nights on March 2014. The hotel is in a perfect out of town location, near the museums and it's easy to get to the city centre by tram which stops right at the end of the road. We stayed on the fourth floor, the room was small but clean, towels and hair dryer were in the room but no drink making facilities.
The 'free' breakfast was great, yogurt, fruit, toast, eggs, cheese and ham as options. Unfortunately the breakfast room so quite small so on our first morning (a Sunday morning) there was no where to sit so we had to miss out. The other days were fine though so I'm not sure if it was just a weekend thing.
Check out was at 11am but they kept our bags for free until we left in the afternoon.

Clean but tiny rooms,en-suite adequate but not much space to move. Hotel not suitable for people with mobility problems due to very steep staircases. Breakfast quite a good selection of breads,cheese,meat, eggs,jams etc. Very near to major museums which meant we could get there before the rush. Also close to street packed with selection of restaurants from many countries.

Room Tip: rooms very small, en suite shower room very compact.this hotel would not be suitable for people with...

I stayed here for four nights on a University Study trip to visit the art museums and galleries. The front entrance was up some very steep steps, I'm not sure there's any disabled access. There is a lift inside to take you up to your floor but it only takes four people without luggage or it breaks down. The alternative is more steep stairs, manageable by me but tricky for anyone with health problems. My room was small but modern, I was pleased to see that there were duvets on the beds, my worst nightmare is blankets, sheets and bedspreads. The room was clean although there was dust in a couple of areas. The twin beds were tiny and the foam mattresses a bit sunken. I was comfortable enough but glad that I am a small person and that the sunken bit helped me stay in the middle of the bed and less likely to fall out!! Before embarking on this trip I checked out the reviews and noticed complaints about the breakfast, well I'm inclined to agree that compared to most hotel breakfasts it was disappointing; bread/toast, granola, ham, cheese, boiled eggs, yogurt and fruit cocktail (yes, the tinned stuff). I would have liked fresh fruit and a pastry, but settled for toast and jam. I enjoyed my stay but would probably book a different hotel in the same area if I return to Amsterdam, one with a good breakfast.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone, we were a group of 7 girls here for two nights, the staff were very helpful and the location was brilliant and in a nice area. I cant comment on breakfast as we were not up in time! The hotel was very quite (maybe because we were the ones making the noise?) there was a mixture of all ages and nationalities. Complain about the room size as much as you want because there was 3 of us in our room and the size was as standard and the other 4 of us were in a very decent size room. To be honest the room size should not matter you are in Amsterdam you should be out exploring. The hotel is very near the Hardrock Cafe and if you take the 197 bus from the airport the hotel is 2 mins from the bus stop.

Localisation is very good! It is around 2 minute walk to the tram which can take you to CS in 15 minutes. A lot of museums nearby. Breakfast buffet was good and food was fresh. Room was small but very clean and the view from our room at last floor was outstanding! Too bad there weren't any vegetables/fruits durning the breakfast.
