“Great location, small rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This hotel has a great location, right by a canal, and within easy walking distance to the big museums as well as the restaurant and entertainment district. However, the rooms are small and of rather average standard. The breakfast buffet is OK. There is a small gym in the basement but it is much nicer to go for a run in the nearby park. There is free wifi, but you have to renew it every 24 hours. The staff was overall friendly and service-minded, and I will definitely consider staying here again.

We really appreciate your review and compliments with regards to the service we have provided and the location! Isn't it lovely to have the Vondelpark just steps away from the hotel? I do want to offer my apologies that we were not able to meet up to some of your expectations. Will you please give us another chance to prove you that we can?

Yours sincerely,

The bed was comfortable, but they didn't have much if any space for clothes storage (no drawers that I could find, just a few shelves in the closet that also had the room safe, shoe cleaning supplies, etc).

The shower also had one of those European half-glass doors dividing the tub from the room, which meant an awful lot of water ended up on the floor during any shower. The shower itself was nice and hot though.

The room AC fan was also always on when set to Auto, the room radiator was never able to warm the room well.

The food was good at the restaurant, although breakfast is pretty expensive for what you get - you may want to seek a cafe in the area unless you are in a hurry.

The location of this hotel is really great, it's very easy to walk a short distance to get a tram that goes all the way the center of Amsterdam, or sideways around the rings. The room design is also nice and the hotel is clean and well-maintained. It's just too bad about the temperature controls.

Also be aware that when they say check-in is at 3PM, they mean it! I was not able to check in much before 2pm on the day I got there. On the flip side they are very relaxed about check-out times.

Felt like I had been transported back to the 80's.
The rooms are beyond tiny (even by Amsterdam standards), the breakfast buffet (for 19 euros) was uneventful and the cleaning of the rooms was beyond basic.
Service was friendly and location fantastic, but there are better hotels in the area.

I stayed for 4 nights at the begining of March at this hotel. I may say it was the perfect choice.
The position was perfect. At walking distance from main attractions (museums, Heineken Brewery, Leidseplein, park). Very close to good restaurants or pubs.
The room was nice, pretty comfortable bed (but hard pillows), nice bathroom. A minus was represented by the dust on the floor. They should be a little more carefull when cleaning the room.
Breakfast was excellent, with a large diversity of food and a nice ideea of AntiOx food and drinks.
Staff was excellent and very helpfull
I trully recomend this hotel.

We booked this on hotelzoo.com as a deal and were very sceptical before going.

We booked to go for 4 nights for valentines weekend and we had never been to Amsterdam before.

First impression, very central!just literally a 3 minute walk from the Leidesplein tram station and a vibrant square.

Reception was very polite and professional.
First impressions of room...great! very clean and simple. We had a balcony overlooking the Leidesplein..perfect!

We got a great nights sleep on the bed..very comfy!...the bathrooms all seem recently refurbished..all in great condition.

We asked for advice on where to go that evening to a restaurant at reception. They were so helpful and thankfully sold us 72 hour tram tickets which were an absolute god-send on our weekend and so thankful we got them on our first night!

No issues for the rest of our stay..rooms are sound proof. Maids never disturbed us the 4 days we were there however cleaned and left us towels everyday!perfect!

Overall highly recommended!
