“Lovely rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

We were upgraded to a basement executive room and were more than happy! Plenty of room, a walk in wardrobe, double shower, double sinks and a fantastic jacuzzi bath. The French doors also opened onto a lovely landscaped garden at the rear of the property. There's free wifi and a lovely espresso machine, the only (small) negative I'd give was the bed - although very comfortable, it consisted of two mattresses pushed together. But this was a minor point.

Location wise it's a two minute walk to Vondel Park and the museums and a five minute walk in the opposite direction to Leidensplatz. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even lending my wife a brolly when it started raining.

This is a great little hotel, definitely one we'll look to use again.

Dear Ell33,

I appreciate the time you spent to write this positive note on your recent stay with us, thank you for that. Needless to say I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us; an upgrade to one of our spacious rooms in the basement surely is a treat! Please know that the hotel also features king-size bedded rooms with one mattresses instead of two separates.

I am proud that we were a part of your positive experience during your visit to our city and sure hope to welcome you back in the future.

Warm regards,
Youp Bimbergen – Hotel Manager

Lovely place to stay with high prices. Rooms are good full of modern art, magazines and perfect coffee. But don't try breakfast for 20 euro: it's really poor and nothing interesting to try. Location is really good: 7 minutes to Museum quarter and 12 minutes to Dam square. Very quiet and clean neighborhood.

Room Tip: Ask about big rooms with new good windows

We booked through Expedia and were pleased to be told we'd been upgraded on arrival to an "executive" room on the lower ground floor (basement level.) The room was large and the bathroom was the star - with a jacuzzi tub, double shower and a small bathroom television, which was a first for us! The room's location on the lower ground floor did mean that the windows opened into light wells covered by glass, such that if you leaned out the window you could see people walking by. We didn't feel that anyone could see into the room, however, so it was fine, but a little strange. The bed was comfortable and the staff were really helpful in providing directions, recommendations for nearby food and activities and calling us a taxi when we left. I would recommend it as very convenient to transport links and museums as well.

Room Tip: We found the windows on the lower ground floor/basement to be a bit odd, but others may not be bothe...

Dear AJS_travell,

It is a pleasure to learn that we were able to be a part of your comfortable Amsterdam-trip last month; thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor. Although at first it may seem a bit odd to stay in a room on the ground floor indeed, I am pleased to read that you enjoyed the size of the room and the features of the bathrooms in our executives rooms.

I hope to be able to welcome you back in Amsterdam on your next trip, please be sure to contact me directly if I can be of any assistance.

Best regards,
Youp Bimbergen – Hotel Manager

Had one of the Executive rooms on the ground floor-bought on a Voyage Prive deal. Travelled at the end of Febuary-the location is ideal, because the street is realtivley quiet, a residentila area with some lovely large houses, larger than normal in Amsterdam!
Just a short 5min walk from the busy Lieden platz, and near the Canal, and all the best Museums, as well as Vondel Park. Very near all the trams, which we got about all over Amsterdam! Never had to wait for long
The Hotel was clean and comfortable with a good Breakfast we were welcome with a voucher for some drinks. The room was very comfortable and modern, the bathroom was the showcase, but I never got used to all the taps! Jacuzzi style bath, great light up shaving mirror-plenty of room for everything. Free Wi-Fi- and nice real fire in the intimate seating area near the bar-The staff were Friendly, helpful and informative. Would I stay there again? Ja!!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 16, it was fine for us!

Everything about this small hotel works from the very nice (if a bit small) rooms that are nicely furnished (admittedly a few nicks here and there) to the very accommodating staff to the great quiet location just a 5 minute walk to the canal ring area. The beds are comfortable and the baths (while small) include a large soaking tub and a walk-in shower with rain-head. The rooms are modern and updated. The staff was genuinely helpful about everything. The breakfast buffet was small (like the hotel) but certainly adequate and well-prepared.
We would return here without hesitation.

'welcomed' by a uninterested lady we were sent to our room, which hardly can be called a room: it was the size of of single room, and even for one very small; a bed where you were forced to change your sleeping habits, if not one of the two would fall out of bed at night; a 'bathroom' only accessible for one; 9 square meter is about the size; breakfast moderate; only plus: very well located; but our first and last time.

Room Tip: don't take 25 unless you are under 3 foot high

Dear DrjHasselt,

I would like to thank you for your recent stay with us. I also appreciate it that you took some of your valuable time to share your thoughts with fellow travellers, since it is with feedback like yours that we can improve our product and service standards. I truly regret the fact that we were not able to meet your expectations throughout your stay.

Hotel Roemer features several different room types, of which our ‘Double Small’ is indeed the smallest; please know that our other room types offer more space and king size beds instead of queen and therefor may have been more suitable for your stay.
Again, thank you very much for your comment, please contact me directly in case of any more questions or remarks.

Best regards,

Youp Bimbergen – Hotel Manager

I have just returned from a short trip of a lifetime in Amsterdam (on business). I booked this hotel online having researched it on Tablet Hotels (which is always very reliable). I can say that the experience lived up to the expectation and very much beyond. The staff were curteous, extremely helpful, the hotel was superbly chic and in a truly fab location. The room was excellent, cool, sophisticated, ideal, perfect! The hydro-bath was a welcome relief after a hard day's pavement bashing and sightseeing. The Wifi was easy to operate and the concierge supplied ore access codes even within a-social hours. The breakfast bar was superb, coffee excellent, i think you get the drift....in short XXX

Room Tip: My junior suite was perfect.
