We stayed here 4-7 December and were made very welcome on arrival by the excellent staff on reception. The location was ideal for sightseeing restaurants bars and shops. Our room was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean the bathroom was great with plenty of hot water and clean towels. The choice at breakfast was tasty and plentiful we really did get our money's worth!! We had a superb stay and will certainly return.

This Hotel was amazing, near enough to the town centre to walk but far enough away from the noise s you can have a restful sleep.
Its clean tidy and packed full of all of the things you need at home, such as Iron and board, free wifi and a snazzy shower in the bathroom.

I would defiantly stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel at least 30 nights over the past 12 years. It started out nice, but has continuously declined in both service, food and room quality. I stopped staying here so often and tried other hotels in the city. To be fair Amsterdam is expensive, and most Dutch hotels are not at the same level of quality as say Germany or Italy. And the location of this place is great. And the staff is very, very friendly, but it in Holland service is not quite what it is elsewhere in the world. Most of the issues are caused by lack of money being spent by the Mother company which is Spanish. This hotel and most of the NH are usually full, so business is not a problem. So, with that now out of the way I will now explain where the NH Centre fails.

The Doorman is gone due to cost cuts. Not the end of the world, but he was a nice guy and it made this hotel feel more special.

The rooms are nasty, in need of renovation. Furniture is chipped, stained, ugly, old. Beds are worn out. Rooms are dark and dreary. Windows are horribly dirty, and window sills covered in mildew, dust, bugs, whatever...

The bathrooms are small, poorly laid out. The plumbing barely works, there is no pressure in the showers, barely enough. This is Holland, not California, water is not an issue here!

The Breakfast is poor; powder used to make scrambled eggs which are cold and old, orotund can choose overcooked, cold, nasty boiled eggs. Bread is from a factory, not a bakery. Cold sausages and bacon. Cold cuts and cheese are cheap supermarket type and are warm and not at all appealing to look at let alone eat. When you enter the room you must pay first, they are very concerned about that. Staff will clear all of your things when you get up for a coffee because they are talking to each other instead of paying attention to customers.

And all of this is wrapped in the annoying hipster style with silly little notes on everything, for instance the Coasters for water glasses say "Drinking Glass Resting Area" or the signs for breakfast claim that the NH Breakfast is an "Anti Oxidant Breakfast" which it is most certainly not.

If you are young, not really picky about the things that I mentioned, then you may like this place if you can afford it. However, if you stay in nice hotels normally the the NH will not be a good choice for you.

Good accommodations, comfortable for 4 nights. Staff is friendly and polite. If the breakfast is included, nice to have it, however, there are many options around. The hotel is near attractions and downtown. Walking distance of restaurants, cafes, pubs.

Visited for 6 nights in the NH Amsterdam Centre. Staff at the front desk was very nice and spoke very good English. My room was large with a small couch and desk. Nice clean bathroom.

Closet area has a mini-bar/fridge. I liked the fact they left room in the fridge for you to put personal items in such as water, soda, snacks etc...

The hotel itself is located in the Leidseplein, which is a major eating, shopping, tourist area. You are literally steps away from great restaurants, shops, and tourist attractions. There are two Starbucks within walking distance, which was a treat for me.

The fitness center is also nice. It is located downstairs and has adequate weights and cardio equipment.

Make sure to ask for a high floor. Spend the extra for a superior room. The standard rooms are quite a bit smaller.

Overall, I would stay a this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and select a superior room.
