“Cosy, calm, cold”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

A small, non-chain hotel, with only about a dozen rooms, hosted in an old dutch house. The location is good: the city center is still within walking distance, but the place is a bit away from a the noise- Tram 9 gets you up to the train station if needed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included- the buffet can not compete with big hotels, but the breakfast room is very cosy, and the staff is always immediately replenishing the breakfast supplies, even after the official breakfast hour. The rooms themselves (including bathroom) seem to have undergone a major makeover recently. Everything looked new or was in very good shape. Beds are of good quality. The only thing that's not new are the windows: old wood frames with single glazing that keep neither the noise nor the cold out. Concerning the noise, I must say that I was still able to get some good sleep during the weekend nights, because not many cars pass by that neighborhood at night (this was my reason for choosing this particular hotel). On Monday morning, however, there was again enough traffic to wake me up at 7 am. Should I go there again, I would try to see if it's possible to get the room facing the nice green yard behind the hotel- perfectly quiet.

Some practical hints for the surroundings (I actually like this more quiet district): The botanical garden is literally across the street, and despite its rather small size, it has a rich collection to offer. There are some Bars and restaurants one block South, and during the night, they're frequented by the locals (during the day by the zoo visitors). If you don't want to keep up with all the touristy busyness downtown at dinner time, give these places a try.

Room Tip: If you are noise-sensitive, try get the room with south orientation. This will probably be the most...

The single room was really small, but it suited my purpose. The wi-fi had some little problem in my room, however it worked really fine in the dining room downstairs, which I was allowed to access freely.
For the rest: the hotel is in an optimal location. Close enough to the center (a 15 minutes walk or a couple of metro stops), but outside the fuzz of downtown. AND mostly a real great thank you to the whole staff. Exceptionally friendly and professional.They even anticipated on Sunday morning breakfast by an hour, to allow for us marathoners the early leave!
I would definitely recommend this hotel to fellow travellers.

The hotel is well situated, overlooking a park and near a tram stop. The zoo is two minutes walk away, with the Botanical Gardens even closer. It is on a quiet street, the hotel is clean and tidy. It looks like the rooms have been recently refurbished. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty to eat at breakfast. The staff were polite and friendly. Be aware that it has the traditional Dutch steep stairs. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Room Six is at that back of the hotel, it is big and quiet.

We loved this little hotel! We stayed in room 41 wich although small, was super cute and romantic complete with wood beams and a large window. Clean shower with lots of water pressure, delicious breakfast, a very cozy family like hotel with lots of soul, very far from the businessy atmosphere we found in most other hotels in Amsterdam. We had to flee from a hotel that was a total rip off and looked for an other one to stay at and were amazed at the amount of rip off there was. Do ask to see the room if possible in most Amsterdam hotel, before comitting. Staff was warm and welcoming, super helpful. The breafast was huge and very fresh, you can make your own eggs on a cooking stove with all the seasoning you like ( chives, peppers, onions etc...). The wifi quality was excelent, even at the top of the hotel wich was instrumental for me cause i had a project fo finish. The best part is its top location in the heart of Amsterdam, close to all cool areas. LOVED IT

Room Tip: We loved our little room 41 and generally i think staying on the fourth floor is cool because of the...

Good location a few minutes walk from the city center. Nice view from the hotel over
Wertheimpark. Friendly staff that helps you with all your tourist needs. The rooms are nice and clean, though a bit worn. Good selection of restaurants nearby.

N.B. If you are disabled or/and have the slightest problem with narrow and steep stairs you should avoid this place since there is no elevator.

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful and gave a good introduction to Amsterdam.

The hotel is located about 10min from the main street Damrak and 15min from the central station, if you take the tram. Tram 9 and 14 stop right around the corner.

The room was, in my case, a nice single room with own balcony. It was small but enough when you are out all day anyway. Good bathroom.
My room was no. 10 - the NEW no. 10. The old no. 10 (now no. 14 I think) is now the budget single and only has a window in the ceiling... My room was on the 3rd floor and not handicap friendly because of the stairs.

Breakfast (included) was really good. Nice dining room and good selection of food.

It was a bit pricey, but as a student, what isn't?

All in all I was very happy with the hotel and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 10 is a great single room! It has the only balcony and is very quiet. Good bed, nice bathroom...
