“Free from the madding crowds...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

While Amsterdam's inner canals are an obvious draw card for tourists, this lovely little hotel gives a more authentic perspective of life in Amsterdam, without sacrificing creature comforts. This location has a real neighbourly feel, and is still within walking distance to Museumplein, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and De Pijp. You only need to walk along the peaceful streets with ornate dwellings, to get a feel for authentic Amsterdam.

The staff here were warm and friendly, however the stairs (like most Amsterdam dwellings) a very steep, so stick to the elevator if steep inclines are not your thing. Breakfast was just ok, and the room was slightly small with an oversized bed.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Will come again if staying in Amsterdam.

We booked a comfort room. Room had been tastefully renovated. The room was quite tight for two people, but we managed to get our luggage and ourselves in there! There was a cupboard for storage and a bar fridge.

The bathroom was small, which was fine, however, the shower did not have a screen or curtain on one side so it meant that the entire bathroom floor got wet each time we used the shower. Housekeeping left plenty of towels each day, so we were able to mop up the floor.

It is in a quiet area of Muesumplein and we did not hear any street noise during our stay. We were able to walk to all of the attractions from the hotel but there is a tram stop only a few minutes away if you feel like taking it easy.

The two ladies that checked us in were really helpful also!

My wife and I stayed here in advance of our relocation to Amsterdam. When we move we hope to live in either Jordaan or De Pijp, both of which are little more than a short walk or tram ride from here. The city centre is also only 10 minutes by tram, making this quiet street a perfect base for any kind of Amsterdam holiday.

The staff are very friendly and checked us in quickly upon arrival, showing us on a map how to get to various locations. They have also helped with a couple of queries during our stay.

We chose a double deluxe room with king size bed and as everyone says the rooms are small. Ours though is very comfortable, although the floor and bed are wooden and tend to squeak. We might be able to answer concerns someone else had about machine noise behind the wall of room 31 - we were in 32 and it was probably the air conditioner which is mounted to the shared wall and absolutely essential during this week of hot, humid weather!

We were able to easily visit Albert Cuyp Market, the rijks, stedelijk and van Gogh museums from here, and as stated the centre and jordaan and canal district are all a few minutes away by trams that come every few minutes all day.

Breakfast was expensive but satisfying with a selection of meats and cheeses, croissants, rolls, cereals, fruit and eggs. Coffee and tea are also included with breakfast, but at other times cost ?1.50. Throughout the day, Heineken, wine and cola are available and a couple of other options, each at ?3.

Our room was cleared daily which is nice - the bed sheets were tidied, towels replaced as required, and the bathroom restocked. They also give 2 nespresso pods per day but we found them to be very bitter and so didn't bother with them.

We recommend this as a great place to stay, and plan to use the chains other hotel near the Jordaan when we come for our next visit.

We occupied 5 rooms with 10 people recently. The beds were great and bathrooms clean and modern. Great neighborhood within walking distance to so many city sites and museums. But, the very best thing about this hotel is the people who own it and those who work there. Phenny and Alcides were dears to us and made us feel at home and welcomed. And they make great coffee on the Nepresso machine! Would stay there again for sure and would invite them to visit me too! Thank you for starting our trip out right!

Stylish boutique hotel in a green leafy neighbourhood. Loved the location, close to the museums, great restaurants nearby and you could walk to Albert Cuyp Market. Much preferred this than being in the centre. The rooms are small and we had some water problems in our bathroom. The drain was slow in the shower, so it was literally a "wet room" for most of our stay. And when they had a slower in the room above, water would drip down from our ceiling, so they must have had a similar issue up there. But actually everywhere we stayed in Holland had slow drains, so maybe wet rooms aren't a great design idea here. And the charge for a coffee in the lobby when you are paying over £130 a night, seems a bit mean. But the staff were so nice, they make you forget these sorts of flaws and we genuinely had an enjoyable visit.

Room Tip: We had the midsize room, and it was still pretty small, so if you want space go for the largest opti...

We arrived early and were accommodated straight away but right from the start we noticed the squeaky floorboards. We stayed on the top floor. in a Deluxe room which was tiny but I assume large by this hotel standards. The Bathroom lighting strobed so much i thought I was going to fit if I stayed in there any longer.Breakfast was good and nice environment. Bed was soft and pillows luxurious.But the floor boards squeaked at ever step. The TV didn't work at all and WiFi became patchy and had to be reset a couple of times but worked reasonably well otherwise. Good neighborhood close to Museums and trams and was a quiet location.

For a start I should give credits for good things:
Location was a bit off center, but close to main museums and within easy reach to trams. Street was nice and quiet, so I was able to keep windows open all night. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Wifi worked everywhere and was free of charge. Breakfast didn't have large variety (no warm meal), but had very good nespresso coffee and freshly baked croissants. So real bliss in the morning.
Not so great was the size of the room. Even though I knew, I booked a small room, I wasn't ready for this. It was small double room, size of a bathroom, where next to small double bed were 2 cubicles - toilet and shower - which shared one glass door, meaning either one was open while you were using another. No huge problem for me as I was travelling alone this time, but can't imagine, how two adults could possibly share the premises. Small sink was right next to the room's door, additionally there was space for closet (incl safe), small table and chair and nothing else. I struggled to find space for my small luggage. Very small flat TV had poor picture quality, so there was no use of it, even though some channels were in English. There was also constant humming noise behind the wall (room 31), which stopped around midnight. Air conditioning was working, but had little effect, so I switched it off and opened the window.
Generally it is not bad place to stay, but be aware of these small rooms, they really aren't suitable for 2 persons. And as it wasn't cheap, I see it as low value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms x2 and x3 are bigger than x1 and x4 on every floor.
