“Nice hotel overall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The check in - check out was easy and short, and the staff were polite and welcoming. The rooms are very small with almost nowhere to move and put the suitcases. There is no door to the shower itself and the floor is completly wet after taking a shower. Also there is no lift, but when you are on the first two floors it's okay. The rooms are very clean and they replace the towels every day. The breakfast was okay, but there is no veriety. Also there is no loby to the hotel, the reseption has 2 couches in it instead. The location is pretty great right on the canal, and it's nice to is it from the window. You can walk almost every atraction in amsterdam and there is tram station 3 minutes walking also. Overall it took me two days to get use to the small room but i enjoyed my stay in hotel van onna, and i reccomend it for those who spand most of their time outside of the hotel and don't want to spend too much money on luxury hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Hotel Van Onna is a lovely boutique hotel situated on what is considered to be Amsterdam's most beautiful canal (Bloemengracht). The check in check out procedures were quick and without fuss. Our room was on the top floor which is great as the view was wonderful and the room was characterful. Short walk to Anne Franks House, the cheese museum and some of Amsterdam's top attractions. The breakfast was plentiful and very good. I am very happy to recommend this well maintained establishment. Good Value for money.

Room Tip: There is no lift so ensure that you check beforehand if you have heavy luggage

The hotel is great placed in the city, near Damm place, Anna F.´s house and other places of interest.
Workers are really great, polite. Really good breakfast (with no juice). Nice room.
High recommended.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stayed one night at Hotel van Onna, which reminds me a bit of my university residence; basic room, dated decor; you can hear footsteps in the hall and above you, and the shower rumbles through the pipes at all hours. The room has no television, phone or clock, and the bathroom provides one thin towel each and soap; no toiletries and no shelf in the shower for your own. A brief shower floods the entire bathroom so a squeegee is provided but the floor doesn't actually dry completely immediately. The beds are metal spring frames with a thin mattress on top, topped with a sheet and a fuzzy blanket; I slept well through the night but was sore in the morning. There are eight steps up to reception and no elevator once inside the building, so it doesn't work well for those with mobility problems or numerous heavy bags. It was also a solid 30-35 minute walk to Central Station rolling our bags over the cobbles. Reception service was cool and indifferent. Breakfast was fine, but small: one hard-boiled egg, one slice of meat, one slice of cheese, bread, coffee/tea. As many have said before, the location is great; quiet and very pretty and wifi works well.

It´s situated in Jordaan. It's the most beautiful district in Amsterdam. Near the Anna Frank museum. I have reserved a single room, but I[ve been given a double, but the room faced backside. But it wasn´t very important for me. The breakfast was very good. I will recommend it.
