“Nice room, very clean, but poor air conditioning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We were two couples to visit Amsterdam two weeks ago. We stayed at the hotel for two nights. It was only 2 months after having booked the hotel and 2 weeks before our trip that we realized what a poor review this hotel got so far. So our expectations were quite lowered and we feared for the worst. After the weekend, and knowing that we are used to a certain standard, I can only say that I am seriously wondering how this hotel has so bad reviews. Okay, it's a small hotel (what could also be considered as charming), and arrival is not so easy, since a waiter from the restaurant had to open the door to us to get to the reception. But the receptionist was nice and and had the initiative to give us a map and indicate us the places to see. The room was really nice, the bed comfortable, and everything was clean and cleaned every day. The only negative things I could say about the room are the lack of accurate air conditioning and the fact that there is just a kind of a door between the room and the bathroom. Moreover, breakfast is not included in the price, has to be taken at the restaurant of the hotel and is rather expensive. But in sum, our impression of the hotel was rather good. I would recommend it if you are searching for a place in a nice area and not planning to stay at the hotel for the whole day.

After reading the bad reviews about this hotel, they told me they would do their best to make it a nice stay ! WOW ! Never had an experience alike , Despite the fact that the hotel room was sort of a coffin, with window panels, the lights of the room did not turn OF ! NO manager, or someone to help, we had to go to the Park Hotel a bit further in the middle of the night. As the Park hotel had no rooms free, (and phoned various other hotels in the city, )we had to go back next day to that miserable place and fix ourselves the lighting, as the manager of the hotel was just watching. I can go on and on, but just be very aware, that the other reviews are very true after my experience. NEVER BOOK MAXIME !!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Do not book here, the best advice I can give, a real rip of

I stayed here for one night a few weeks ago.The location was great, the bed comfortable but
thats about all that was good.The room was not air conditioned and it was like an oven with no windows to open but they did have a fan.Then I went into bathroom to find toiletries half full and and a bar of soap with a hair on it.The staff that completed the check in was snotty and when complaint made about bathroom, they didnt seem to care at all.For te price I would stay elsewhere.

This is the second time in Amsterdam,the first was too way expensive,this time we stay at Maxime hotel,its a small boutique Hotel,the staff was ok,the only think i can complain about it its its too hot even with the gardinen closed,the window open so little so was too little fresh air you have in the night.In the middle of designers shooping area,and museums really close actually arround the corner...we will be back at this hotel for sure,i recomend this because the price its good (not easy to get something like this in Amsterdam)

Dear Zen,
Thank you very much for your comments. We always value guest comments good or bad highly. After investigating the matter our conclusion is our linnen procedure was not executed well by our laundry service. Orders are to take out all linnen of a bad quality. Obviously in your case this was not done properly for which we do apologize. The week after your departure we have changed our entire linnen stock to "Witte Littaer". A brand only used by 5 star deluxe properties from all over the world. Concerning the dust problem, It is a problem, but cannot be resolved because of our dark furniture. There is no more dust then in any other hotel, it's only more visible. A room can be totally free of dust and the moment you close the door it is there again. Dust is not the same as dirt. We put a lot of effort in cleaning and are convinced all rooms are cleaned in a proper way. Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future and prove to you your experience was an incident. Thank you again and kind regards, Cas van Lieshout,

After reading the reviews I was slightly worried but when we arrived we were impressed and happy with the room! Amsterdam is expensive regardless and this was good for the money you paid. It is a small boutique hotel where the cafe staff appear to run the hotel reception - no biggy they're all friendly. If you want a hotel with lots of staff waiting on you this is not your place... if youre all about exploring the city but wants some comforts i would stay here (im used to staying in back packers so this was perfect). The Cafe is also cool... quite shabby chic and the location is in a cool fashionable/rich part of the Dam... equivalent to bond st in London and only mins away from lots of attractions.

The room was cosy and some what lacking in attention to detail of the decor but it's condition was commensurate for what we paid. Especially considering we stayed one of the busiest weekends of the year. This hotel was centrally located in Amsterdam, near the designer shops. The hotel has only 12 rooms . We arrived after 9pm , we rang the contact and the hotelier came to register us .
Despite the negative reviews that we had read online we found the hotel satisfactory .The decor was a bit tired in spots and Somewhat lacking in attention to detail, but it's condition was commensurate for what we paid.
future guests should be aware that the lift takes only three people at a time. The rooms are cosy -a bit tight for space. Ours was on the fourth floor in the loft.
