“Average… noisiest room I've ever stayed in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The hotel is a bit of walk out from the train station in the centre of Amsterdam I would recommend anyone to get the tram only a couple of euros plus their quick and frequent and will save you a good 25-30 minute walk. The location is good however for the Heineken factory and the Rijksmusuem about a 5 minute walk to either.

The hotel itself is average it was a last minute purchase of mine and I hadn't studied it like I usually do when booking a trip away. The reception was as you'd expect just a formality hand over passports sign this pay city tax etc etc… I got the keys to the room after going in the lift to the 4th floor (by the way the longest lift ride ever sure there was a hamster on a wheel making it move) it's a bit awkward to find your room as you get off the lift as they don't go in numerical order but not an issue soon got there. The room itself was on the smaller side but big enough for one night the room was clean, had a tv and safe and the bathroom was idea again perfect for a short stay.

The downsides were a 3 inch gap under the door that didn't help with the noise of the hotel, the pillows on the bed were none existent had to use my coat under the pillow to make it comfortable the noise in this room and banging from other guests late at night was beyond a joke and finally I got an slight electric shock off the bedside lamp as unknown to me the switch was broken I informed the person on reception who to be honest didn't seem all that bothered.…

Breakfast in the hotel was ok we had to go down to the ground floor where there was pastries and assorted meats the usual continental breakfast limited choice but good quality food none the less. On our booking form it stated free snacks and drinks available throughout the stay this included of tea and coffee facilities in reception and some sweets on the counter… other than this the closest I came to a free snack was someone left 30 cent in the vending machine so I got a discount bueno bonus :-)

I would stay here again but only at short notice and if nothing else was available closer into the city

Room Tip: Make sure door is full length without gaps underneath…

The whole experience was great, but there were some things that can be improved. Location, cleanliness and the service were perfect. However, I didn't like the pillows (a very important thing in my opinion), there should be more variety in the breakfast and although there was a lot of silence, it's easy to hear your neighbours sometimes.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Just spent three nights at this hotel in April 2014. Transport links to and from Central Station are excellent, hop on the number 4 tram at the station, get off at the Stadshouderkade stop and hotel is just across the road, couldn't be simpler. But if you like to be in the centre of things it might not be ideal for you, as you do have to get the tram in and out of town pretty much all the time - buy a three-day tram pass at Central Station and you're done. I like being a bit away from the city centre sometimes as it means you get to know other parts of the city a little better. We were in room 503 which turned out to be not on the fifth floor overlooking the canal as I imagined but in the basement along the corridor from the breakfast room but it proved to be really peaceful as there were no other rooms nearby. The stairs are very old-style but they are easier to walk up than down, so we got the lift down and walked up when the lift was slow in arriving.The bathroom is very compact but who spends their holiday in a hotel bathroom? The whole room, bathroom and hotel is beautifully fitted out and everything is new. The staff were really helpful, offered free maps, free coffee, free smiles - what's not to like? The breakfast was first class, lots of choice, including hot scrambled eggs. the hotel is well placed for the museums and the Heiniken Experience, a ten-minute canalside walk takes you there. And don't miss the Albert Cuyp street market, it's just behind the hotel, on every weekday, and filled with street food and colour, not to mention the velveteen clog slippers. Just beyond the market is De Pijp, a gentrifying area with lots of quirky shops and a pleasant park. We ate at Sla, a very reasonably priced and modern salad bar at Ceintuurbaan 149 - it was a great place to eat some greenery after all that street food!

We were at the hotel in April 2014 to three days a very clean hotel excellent breakfast quiet hotel with excellent location. 3 stations 4 center line. There is a major problem in the hotel so I do not go back there again - very small bathroom. Then slowly lift also use the stairs built the old method of the Netherlands. It is important to take into consideration that you can not take a shower at it properly because of the limited size of the bathroom.
