“Modern , well run establishment & great value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

We booked a three day visit to Amsterdam & choice this hotel on reading previous trip advisor reports - we were not disappointed .From arriving at the hotel , ( which was very easy to locate from the train station , 5 mins by tram or 12 mins walk ), we were impressed by the friendly and welcoming reception staff .Information on how to get to various areas of Amsterdam were freely given including tram details.
The room we had on the fourth floor was clean , spacious and modern with plenty of storage area , the only fault was the safety deposit box that despite several attempts refused to function but we chose not to report the problem which I am sure would have been resolved if we had have done.
Breakfast in the restaurant is self service but with an extremely wide choice of both warm and cold food , a nice addition is the fresh orange juice squeezing machine.Evening set price meals are also available and again with a wide selection of hot and cold food some of which is prepared to order.There is also a pleasant bar in the hotel with a good choice of drinks available.
The hotel location was ideal for us being approx.10 mins out of the main Amsterdam attractions.We found the tram service to be regular , good value and the nearest tram stop quite close to the hotel.
All in all this hotel was a great find but a special mention should be given to the excellent reception staff.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 days for my birthday, it's the 1st time that we had been to Amsterdam. The hotel is very nice, modern & clean, staff very friendly. The restaurant looked very good but we never ate there as it was a bit expensive, the bathrooms are 1st class with heated floor & amazing power shower. The only downfall is that the hotel is a little bit away from the main hustle & bustle but can be easily reached by a couple of trams.

Had a fantastic stay in this hotel. We couldn't check in til 2pm so we were allowed to leave our luggage as we went off and explored the city. We came back quite late and because of this they had ran out of standard twin rooms and we were upgraded to a superior twin room. The breakfast was expensive so we didn't opt for this. The room was quiet, tastefully decorated and pristine clean. I will most likely be staying here when I visit again.

Traveled with 2 young adults. Stayed 4 nights in room 122 which had one king and 2 twins pushed together. Room was very spacious. One side table for each side of the beds with ample outlets. Location of the hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam and was generally quiet. Transportation is just one block away...tram 12 and bus 64. Very easy to get to and from Schiphol. We felt very safe walking around the area , even late at night.

Front desk was excellent. Very helpful with all our needs. Allowed us early check-in which was greatly appreciated. Easy, quick check-out. Excellent wifi in the room...log in once and you were never logged off. Will definitely try to stay here again and will recommend to others.

This was a great spring break for us! Tulip time...

Some complaints: some towels had stains on them (smelled clean but was yellow tinged in parts). Noise from room next door...hangers banging in the closet when the neighbors came in 1 a.m. Also on third night, some people were screaming and yelling outside the hallway at 3 a.m.

When we entered to the hotel we were greeted by a wide smiley from the front desk team. From the first impression to the last ,,goodby" everything went smoothly, perfect and we got more than we expected! Beautiful hotel in every details, the sleep quality was the best ever and the dinner.... We tried it for my boyfriends birthday and we couldnt find a better restaurant for that special occassion. Sea food, pasta, live cooking, sushi, different meats, salads .... long list, no end. The others said its far from everything, but to use the tram was lovely! Far means only a 15-20 minutes or less if you like walking and mix it with the tram, but the puclic transportation is easy, clean and fun too. Thank you for every members of the team who made our city break fantastic!! We'll definitely go back!!

Room Tip: From the 6th floor there was a beautiful view of the city!

Don't be put off by the look of the hotel from the outside or the location not being right in the centre of Amsterdam. I was impressed with what we got for our money - decent sized room, good facilities & really clean. Don't let the surrounding roads put you off either - still a very quiet place to stay. The rooms are equipped with coffee-making machines, a mini bar, a hairdryer, plenty of sockets (even a UK voltage socket!) 2 USB sockets, liquid hand-wash plus shower gel, also miniatures of shower gel, body lotion & shampoo if you do forget yours. The shower is lovely & big with the choice of using a fixed-position overhead shower head or a handheld moveable shower attachment (this info is probably more important to the ladies for when we're washing our hair etc...) Bed - typical continental-type of 2 singles creating a double - very comfortable. I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be warm enough as the duvet seemed very thin but it was obviously decent quality as it kept me nice & snug but you also control your own heating/air-con in the room. TV with lots of channels including BBC & other English speaking channels if you do want them. Fantastic free WiFi connection - never once did I have any problems with it in any part of the hotel. Plenty of storage space, a safe in the wardrobe that is easy to use (choose you're own 6 digit code). The only thing that some people might find irritating are the lights on the key card panel & the heating/air-con control as they're a bit bright in the dark but I covered them with a bit of cardboard overnight & they were fine (so you might want to take a bit of cardboard & a small roll of sellotape...small price to pay for what is an otherwise lovely room). The breakfast might seem a bit pricey (15 euros if I remember rightly...) but I have never seen a breakfast selection like it - amazing choice!!! We ate a hearty breakfast each morning & found we then didn't need to eat anything much until our evening meal, so it actually saved us money. Tram 12 (stop is just across the road from the hotel) takes you into Amsterdam & also connects with lots of other tram routes. In the opposite direction it also takes you to Sloterdijk where the trains run to & from Schiphol Airport - not far at all & much cheaper than a taxi. We bought a 72-hour ticket from the hotel reception, which was good value for money & runs for 72 hours from the time you purchase it. The trams run pretty frequently & also till late in the evening. Just remember to scan your ticket when you get on & off the trams. There is also a secure luggage store room, where you can leave your cases when you check-out if your flight isn't until later in the day. Really pleased we chose this hotel - all the staff spoke English & were very friendly & helpful.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor & had very little traffic noise.
