“It's alright.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

The location is great and so are the beds.
Since we was there in the middle of the summer, the lack of air condition sucked. But the beds.. Damn those beds.
The breakfast was ok if you are happy with only some bread and a few things to put on top of it. warm juice.. worst thing there is when it comes to a hangover.

And the stairs are hell. But that's how it is all over Amsterdam. Look at it as exercise!

All i all, it's alright.

This place is fabulous! Modern, clean rooms/bathroom, awesome location, breakfast included, and so close to Amsterdam Centraal! I was literally able to walk to the hotel from the train station. The staff was friendly too. I was impressed.

Reading through a handful of the reviews here I feel like I stayed in a different place almost, when staying here for a few nights we got a twin room which was great, the beds were good, the bathroom we got was huge and had a great shower, we were provided with toiletries and new towels/beds made every day. While the free wifi wasn't reliable for us(we were quite a few floors up), the wifi in reception/the bar was fine, I think a lift would be beneficial but I understand the logistics of adding one of these would be a headache :P The staff in the hotel were fantastic, for 2 tourists who had never been to Amsterdam they were incredibly helpful and we greatly appreciated their suggestions and help finding stuff. Oh and just to point out, the location is so central, we were shocked by this as the pricing was very reasonable, would definitely stay here again and recommend to any friends visiting!

My wife and I were extremely satisfied with our stay at this hotel.
The location is superb.
The staff were very friendly, proactive and supportive.
The breakfast was enough.
Shame, WiFi was only at the reception area.
Thank you, managers, you are doing your work the way it should be done!

I was in Amsterdam for the first time and I have to say I've been lucky with the chosen hotel. It is very good. We booked a superior room with a breakfast and were delighted.
The room is not too small as I expected it to be...all newly refurbished and decorated with a big bathroom and a bathtub. The bed was very good and big. Staff is very friendly, especially Ismail who helped us with getting around Amsterdam.
The breakfast is good also not so wide selection.
The hotel is in a perfect location. Only minutes away from everything and the area is very good.
I would definitely go there again if I come for a visit.

Room Tip: Up to the second floor there is an elevator ;)

We were very nicely surprised. Coming to the City Hotel we were expecting the average 2star hotel. The room was spacious and cosy, the bathroom was modern, probably the whole lot was only refurnished recently. The staff members were really friendly, all of them had quite good english. The breakfast was very basic but a sandwich and a cup of coffee is well enough for the price of the room. We would definetly stay again :)

If you just need a place to rest your head and sleep while having a short trip to this lovely place then this Hotel is amazing Value for money..
Service was great - rooms cleaned each day..
Sleep quality - no complaints at all.. away from any party areas or bars..
Breakfast was very nice each morning in a small area.. couldnt complain about the food :D

Only bad thing is that the room is TINY.... But in this amazing place you wont really be in your room much when there is soooo much to see
