“Good location, a bit noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This hotel is in a good location, within 10 minutes walk from the central station and lots of bars, restaurants around. In fact, check-in was located inside a restaurant reception area.

The room was on the 3rd floor in the building opposite the restaurant where I checked in. It was tiny and had a double bed which took up most of the room. Furnishings looked cheap and basic, but usable. Small tv with so-so reception. Surprisingly big and clean bathroom with a toilet, shower and sink.

Soundproofing wasn’t great. The area is full of bars and restaurants, and at night you could hear people talking and laughing on the streets till late at night. Bad news if you are a light sleeper.

Breakfast is prepared fresh at the restaurant, with bacon, eggs and toast. It’s so nice to have freshly-prepared breakfast.

They had a store room where you can store your luggage if you came too early before check-in or if you still wanted to wander around the city after check-out. A word of caution, if you are one of the first to put your bags in, you could come back at a later time to a full store room, and you would had to dig through the mountain of bags to locate your bag underneath (haha!).

In short: good location, light sleepers beware!

Room Tip: Higher floors less noise

If you just want to have a place to crash, close to the station, in the middle of Dam Square then this is a great place. If you're looking for nice accommodations with your own private bath then this is not the place. The room we had stunk of cigarette smoke and was tiny for 3 adults. But it served it purpose as a place to spend the night since we were only in Amsterdam for a night.

Hotel is in a good location within 5-7 minutes walk from central station and close to bars, restuarants etc. Breakfast was freshly cooked with bacon/egg/coffee/hot toast. We have a twin room and it was TINY, very very small with almost no room to move, a room only good for sleeping. The furnitures was cheap and basic, but seem quite clean and the towels were replaced daily. Wifi was provided but we could only get it in the restuarant area but not in our hotel room. It was a bit over priced. We most likely will not want to stay here again.

This is a great hotel if you're the sort of person that doesn't hang around the hotel much, but rather for sleeping and having a good meal in the morning. we had a room at the 4th floor, and the view was EXTRAORDINARY!!!
So if you're going to amsterdam and want to explore the city, i recommend this hotel. if you're looking for a hotel with a spa and that sort of stuff, this is not for you.

Stayed here for my stag do last weekend and it was happy to home all 14 of us. This place is right in the middle of Amsterdam, literally 1 minute away from the station centraal. The staff are very helpful, but he rooms are very very basic. Especially when we was charged £50 per person per night. I'd expect this sort of room for £20 maximum. The location doesnt quite make up for the price of the room as there are better around if your not travelling in a group. You won't be disappointed when you run into this hotel 2 minutes from the station, you will however when you see you're room.

Stayed here for one night. Found it perfect for a good nights sleep- really comfortable beds, decent breakfast and nice service for the price. It is small and the twin rooms are tiny but you get what you pay for.

Good shower and the free wifi is a bonus. I'd stay here again
