“Comfy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

The hotel is just a two min walk from the tram line. You would need to take line 1. We had a lovely time. The room was comfy and large. There were tea making facilities in the room. The bedding was clean and the room was of good quality. The bed mattress was very soft.
Staff were kind, polite and professional. We did not have breakfast but I sure it was good.

Room Tip: Room 408 is quite big

I stayed here for one night. Overall the hotel was good and myself and my partner enjoyed the stay, the room size was fine with plenty of space and very large toilet and separate shower room. The location is good, with a tram stop very close to the hotel, this being served by the number 1 tram line which can be caught from Central station.

We didn't choose to have the breakfast and we found plenty of places to get a breakfast from within a short walk away from the hotel.

The bad thing now, myself and my partner found the mattress to our bed to be too soft and a constant feeling of rolling off due to this which caused us to have little sleep but I appreciate some people may find the beds great but I prefer a firmer mattress. This was the softness mattress I have slept on and felt like the mattress was swallowing me.

So In all a decent hotel, in a good location.

I stayed for a week for business.
My room was clean and silent, the wifi was provided for free.
During all the day you can take coffee, cappucino or tea for free in the lounge room.
The breakfast is quite good but maybe a bit expensive.
In front of the hotel there is the tram 1 to arrive to the center and 5 minutes walk (Lindspein) there is the bus (197) from the airport: the ticket costs only 4 Euros, very cheap.
I used to reach the center, Dam Square, by walking: it is about 25-30 minutes.
I suggest this hotel.

Room Tip: There is only one tree near the hotel, when there is enough wind the branches hit the windows at lea...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Within walking distance of Rijksmuseum and van Gogh, Leidseplein center of tourist attractions and many sidewalk cafes great for resting weary feet and people watching. The tram to/from Centraal rail station runs in front of the hotel.
Yes, the room was rather small, but then how much time does one spend inside in such a great city as Amsterdam!

We decided to spend our 3-day Amsterdam stay at the Espresso after reading some Tripadvisor's reviews.
The hotel lies just outside the external canal, so that one has to cross a large two-way avenue to access the central and touristically interesting part of the town. On the other hand, Van Gogh and Reijksmuseum are just a few minutes walk southward from the hotel (bring your GPS to Amsterdam!) and tickets can be bought at the reception.
We had a superior room on the fifth floor, very quiet and with comfortable pillows. The room was really small and disposed of few storing space, and as we were on an intercontinental travel some of our clothes had to remain inside the suitcases. There was a flat-screen TV and room illumination, air conditioning and water pressure were correct. There was no minibar, but there is a vending machine downstairs. Wi-Fi is free and excellent and we could have three or four devices connected simultaneously without the need to keep record of complicated passwords. Breakfast is just average, but it's worth having it included, since there are very few options nearby. The breakfast room turns into a pleasant coffee lounge during the rest of the day, where one can sit and get complimentary coffee from the machine at any time. Reception personnel is helpful and attentive.
If you are looking for a decent, clean, friendly hotel for a short stay and don't bother to do some walking, the Espresso is perfect; but if you want a fancy hotel in the city center then you had better check somewhere else.

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Amsterdam. It's location is great, only a few minutes walk to Van Gough museum and centre. Room although small was clean, modern and well presented. Staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast hit the spot!
