“Friendly, helpful and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stayed three nights during lovely late April weather. The hotel's location just down the street from Leidseplein couldn't be better. Nightlife, restaurants from economy to gourmet, the great museums and at the end the bus direct to the airport are all within easy walking distance. Yes, the stairs are narrow and steep but luggage is only an issue at the beginning and end. We were in a small but comfortable room on the top floor. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful in explaining how and where to get around. Breakfast was good and plentiful. This hotel is an excellant value for a '2 star' establishment.

Room Tip: The 4 flights of stairs to top floor may be a little daunting for some.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This was a really nice hotel, which comfortable rooms and a great breakfast included.
It was very close to Leidseplein (1 minute walk) which meant being very close to lots of great bars and restaurants.

Very quick tram rides to all the main attractions, Dam Square, the Red Light district, Anne Frank's house

The staff were really friendly and gave great advice on attractions and how to get around.

Rooms were clean and comfortable.

As in most European cities the rooms were small, the staircase was difficult to get your bags up and the major road outside our window was very noisy. But this is just Europe - not something restricted to one hotel. Be prepared for these obstacles wherever you go if you want to be close to the action.

Overall a lovely hotel that I would re-visit

Room Tip: If possible get one that isn't on the road side as this might be quieter

We stayed here during October half term. Lovely clean rooms, tasty fresh breakfast. Friendly helpful staff especially Mimi the tabby cat. In a very central location - walking distance to everything. Would definitely recommend and stay again. Lovely view of the DeLaMar Theatre opposite.

Room Tip: Make sure you mention if you have trouble climbing stairs as they are steep to the top.

Five of us stayed here over a weekend, two in a twin room and three in a triple room. The rooms are basic but the hotel is excellent value with a great location near bars and restaurants. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is included and is served late into the morning

My husband and I recently stayed here for 4 nights. The central location was perfect, it was very easy to get around. The staff are super friendly and helpful with is a huge plus. And they have a resident cat that lives in the lobby which is fun! Breakfast was included in the price with is always nice. However this is definitely a basic, budget hotel, and the room showed it. Clean enough- but very small and nothing special. And be prepared for stairs, and more stairs- steep ones! We were on the top floor and just barely got our large bags up to our room. There is no elevator and the staff did not assist us with our luggage.

If you are on a budget I would recommend this hotel because it is a good value, safe and friendly. However, next time I am in Amsterdam I will spend a little extra for something a bit nicer and more comfortable :)

Room Tip: The top floor double room had a nice view, but if you don't want to deal with many steep stairs...

this is my first visit to amsterdam. i went with two friends, and selected the hotel through tripadvisor. Its almost what I expected small clean friendly hotel in a perfect location. You are almost midway from every thing you need. The room price is good, the breakfast is simple, the rooms are very clean, the sheets smell good. The stairs were very narrow, but this is how it is in amsterdam. Good place. Can't forget about Jacky, she is so friendly and welcoming.
