“Everything was great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

The staff are really friendly and helpful. The place is spotlessly clean and the rooms have everything you could want. There is a good choice for breakfast and it is served until 10.30. Good parking at reasonable rates. Tram number 5 takes you into the centre of Amsterdam in 15 minutes. Buy a ticket from reception, 7.50 euro for 24 hours or 12 euro for 48 hours. There is a good supermarket nearby and a wines and spirits shop at reasonable prices. All in all a great place to stay, would definitely return and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ground or first floor.

Nice hotel in good location. The staff were very friendly and helpful and really made a difference to the stay. Obviously the lack of its own restaurant can be inconvenient for the late traveller but restaurants are in walking distance and there is a Korean and French restaurant very close.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are handy.

Although the hotel is not in the centre ,the location is excellent,next to tram 5 to all the major interest points and in the other direction to Amstelveen(covered) shopping center,for me preferable above the center(binnenstad)with all the major shops including the great friday market.Parking is cheap for Amsterdam standard and lots of space next to the hotel.
The rooms are good ,the beds fantastic*****,we did miss some drawers and closed cupboards but managed very well because of the large room.Bathroom with a great shower,and everything still very new and well kept.Service is excellent.The free breakfast really nice for a business hotel.For kosher keeping people this is the place:they offer a kosher choice of breakfast and all the shabbat facilities you can think of ,close to synagogues and kosher shops & restaurants.It is a hotel everybody feels at home and we already recommended it to many of our friends!

Although it's situated just South of Amsterdam, outside the city centre, this hotel is a great choice for people who want to be in the city. Just in front of the hotel there's a stop of tram 5 that brings you straight to many places in the city centre (Leidseplein, Dam, Central station etc.). To get there it's only 10 minutes. And the day pass, which can be bought at the hotel reception will cost you just 7,50 euros. Very convenient. When do have a car, in front of the hotel there's plenty of parking space which almost always offers availability, especially in the weekend. During the week there's a moderate rate (not the 6 euros per hours in the city centre) to be paid, but in the weekend it's free.
Anyway the hotel is new, very clean, good (not too big) rooms but they've got all you want, a great shower, good beds and free pretty fast internet connection all over. The breakfast is good with hot and cold stuff to choose from and again in a space that's comfortable and clean.
Just a great choice for people who do not have to be in the city centre to visit Amsterdam.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Incredibly easy to get to via public transportation from the airport and super convenient to the tram stop for travel into the city. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast had a good deal of variety and started early enough to be useful before heading into city centre for a full day of sightseeing. For a leisure trip, it's definitely a "leave in the morning and return at the end of the day" situation and the location is a little deserted at night, but it was a great value. The staff was friendly and I was super thankful for the chance to check in incredibly early (9am) on my arrival.
My only quibble is that in an effort to be green, there are only built in soap/shampoo dispensers located by the sink and in the shower and unfortunately the dispenser in the shower was broken throughout my stay. I reported it as I left for the day after my first night but it had not been repaired by the time I returned later that evening. I bought some travel size items while out just in case and was glad that I did as I never connected with the front desk again and the dispenser had not been fixed when I left after 3 nights.
Overall, however, it was a comfortable, quiet lodging for a solo trip to see Amsterdam for the first time. A little out of the way, but I was glad to be clear of the tourist sections of town.

Stayed here for a good 5 nights during New Years, Service is great and friendly staff to assist our needs!!!! Would recommend for those looking for a new accommodation style to stay in Amsterdam which is not too far from Central Amsterdam.
