“Ok for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Very good location as it is in the heart of Rembrandt square.

Can be very loud at night with all the bars right there though.

Rooms were small but good enough for the price.

No elevator which was a pain with our luggage as the stairs are very long and steep.

First of all. If you want to party... This is the location. Sure there's lots of tourists bars and clubs but still they're not so bad. The hotel is located in one of the most popular square for party.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
The prices are a little bit expensive for the quality of the rooms but you're in a good location.

After a long trip in several locations, we were very appreciative of the excellent water pressure in the shower. It seems like a small thing, I know, but I will tell you, to us it was a very big deal. The staff at reception was fantastic and helped us find a needle in a haystack (the post office). They had two lovely little French bulldogs sleeping under the counter which we thought were adorable. The room was spacious and very, very clean. I also liked that we had a balcony. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of street noise given that the hotel is on a popular square.

Absolutely friendly and helpful staff - Max and Oz. Great location - you can't go wrong- just about Central Station. Very clean room and bathroom. Towels were changed every day and you find them folded on your bed in the fantasy way:) strongly recommend

Recently stayed with 8 friends for a 30th birthday. The location is the main selling point as it is only a short walk from Dam Square and the RLD. Staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are warm and clean. The only thing that could be improved upon would be the breakfast which is very basic (the bacon and egg rolls are served cold). Still a great place and I will be staying again next time I go to Amsterdam.

Loved this hotel. Staff was great, especially Mustafa who seems to work nights. Would rate it as excellent if they had music in the lobby, especially at night when you might want to have a drink, had safes in the rooms, and provided toiletries for free. Rooms were clean although they could do better cleaning during your stay. Excellent location, reasonable price. Very close to centraal station. Would go back.
