“Nice clean hotel in quiet location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Nice hotel out of the centre but ideal if you want to travel around
Room was small but very clean, as was the whole hotel.
Staff were friendly and good breakfast with plenty if choice for us, and great coffee.
Would recommend based in the above and very good value for money.

Located 5 minutes by Tram from Central Station, this wonderful hotel is very close to the heart of life in Amsterdam, yet tucked quietly along a side street so you can get a good nights rest in between your busy days.
Very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and with a superb team of staff who were very friendly, helpful, polite and courteous. Nothing was too much trouble.
A solid breakfast and if you come in late, the bar can help with a nightcap or two.
Having stayed in Amsterdam many times over the years, this really has it all at a price that makes you wonder how they do it.
Quite simply, a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms were cozy, but have the option to open windows (unlike many) to cool down if you require.

Nice, clean and comfy twin room. No safebox in bedroom as mentioned on expedia website.Breakfast is average, no variety. You have to pay for parking at the meter on the street in front of the hotel, however, parking is limited we got lucky to find 1 spot available. Great location, 10 to 15 min walk till you get to lively area of Amsterdam.

We have just got home from a great holiday. The hotel nicolaas witsen was every thing it said it was on the Internet. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and big enough. The trams are the way to get around and cheap. Thank you again for a great holiday.

We are at this moment enjoying complimentary breakfast at the hotel, it is very nice. Room felt very clean and bathroom as well. It is not large room, but was very comfortable. We had a 140cm bed, which we slept very well in, comfortable pillows and comforter. Staff is very friendly and it has been a very nice stay. About 30 minutes walk from the central train station and less the 15 minutes to restaurants and shops. We stayed here for a convention and some sightseeing, it was a 20 minutes walk to RAI. The hotel was a perfect stay for a couple vacation to, as we felt very comfortable coming back and relaxing in the room. It is not a chic boutique hotel, but a good and clean comfortable hotel. Pictures felt true from hotels own website. We booked directly with the hotel and got a better deal there.

Room Tip: We prefer to sleep with the with the window open, there is a tram running on the cross street and yo...
