“I dont understand people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Some pple comments are really annoying here. What is the date today? Almost end of november. So why didnt u write your review in the relevant time? Obviously many things has changed in this hotel since the opening. Opening a hotel is not an easy thing. There are still some things that they have to work on, but why do u want to "TERRIFY" other people with a so bad review??? I would not use this word ever for a hotel like this. Terrify could be a non-star, dirty, filthy, full of bedbugs hotel, but not this. Which u can find in Amsterdam not one or two....

Some explanation: in this hotel there is not a classic "SINGLE ROOM" type with one single bed. That is the "SMALL DOUBLE". So if you booked a small double room (for example room 101), then do not be suprised that is small. Yes, that is usually for one person, but because there is a big double bed in the room, 2 pple can also be accomodate in. Low budget room for couples... or just for single people.

All the rooms are on the ground floor, only the penthouse suites are on the top of the building.

THERE IS INTERNET AND TV in the rooms already and they are WORKING - not only youtube!!!!
Breakfast is not available in the hotel yet, but probably from the next year the hotel will serve breakfast and lunch as well.

The rooms are very clean. The hotel is in a very good location, surranded with restaurants, bars, shops, laundry service.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

we stayed in this hotel for one night during a business trip to amsterdam. we looked forward to stay in a recent opened hotel, we was thrilled to sleep in one of the welcoming looking rooms we have seen on the internet. but we was desperately disappointed. the room was an undersized cubbyhole. the tv didn´t act, i could only use one side of the room, to change the roomside i had to climb over the bed, because the desk an chair blocked the way. the shower was leaky so that after the shower the hole room was under water. frighteningly the window couldn´t be opened. if you want to stay in this hotel ask for a room far away from the front office. in room 101 you will be disturbed by noises all the night, phone bell, but nobody pick up the phone, sorting empties at the front office an noises from cases. the staff was uncordially and complaintmanagement was missing. all in all the hotel is not to recommend.
