“Great location & good rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel for our Amsterdam city break.

Location is great - the hotel is very close to Centraal Station. Directly to the south of the hotel is a beautiful non-touristy neighbourhood, Jordaan, which is full of small independent restaurants and canal-side bars.

Rooms are well designed with nice trendy furniture. The bed is very comfortable with good quality bed linen. The room is spacious, but almost too spacious - the bathroom side of the room feels bare and will benefit from an extra armchair and some artwork on the wall. We paid an extra 10 EUR per night for a last-minute upgrade to a high-level room, which is worth the money as the views of the city from the room are lovely. Toiletries and other in-room amenities are sufficient for a 4-star hotel, but nothing special really!

Service is okay. The staff we dealt with at check-in was friendly and professional but our experience with other staff in the following days was fairly average - not rude, but also not particularly helpful!

All in all, the hotel is a good solid choice for a few nights' stay in Amsterdam. The price is very good compared to other hotels in the city. It would have been a perfect experience if the service was improved.

Room Tip: High-level rooms are worth the extra 10 EUR.

I stayed at Room Mate Aitana for 6 nights and am happy to admit that it was an excellent experience.
The staff was very nice and helpful.
The rooms are spacious, clean and furnished in a trendy minimalist style. A small drawback might be that even if taking a twin room (which happened to be also my case), the bathroom is generally suitable for one person as there is not too much space. Therefore, if travelling alone, it is still perfect, however, for a couple there might be some constraints.
Very comfy beds!
The minibar was full and there was always some choice if during the day there was no possibility to buy a snack in any of the local shops.
Breakfast was good and had a quite wide selection. So, even if it did not change much during all my stay, there was always a possibility to chose something new and untried in the previous mornings.

Room Tip: If you chose a room on lower floors, it is advisable to chose the city side of the hotel for a nicer...

I stayed here for 6 nights during a business trip to Amsterdam last month. My room was clean and comfortable. The staff was great. But the "free wifi" was so slow in my room as to be useless. When I complained, I was told that the IT department was working on the issue. Whatever they were doing, it didn't help during the time I was at the hotel.

Beautiful surroundings. Modern clean but the bar is supposed to close at 12......except when it closes at 11.45! Having taken a cab to get back for a last drink I do not appreciate having to argue my case and then being told 'ok, but just one'. Like a naughty child. I only wanted one anyway!.
P.S Our air conditioning wasnt working either

I stayed here one night after having endured a twenty four hour flight from Sydney and could not have chosen better. Having met up with my daughter I wanted a special place to start our travels and this definitely fit the bill. Our room was fabulous, a corner suite with floor to ceiling glass and fabulous views over Amsterdam with a lovely balcony which although small was great to step out to. A short walk to the station and the heart of Amsterdam.

Great hotel in design, location, views, and stuff. Me and all my friends felt lucky for choosing this hotel with price rate from galahotels.com. Very close to central station either walking for 10minutes or taking 48bus just in front of hotel

New hotel in a new area just 10 minutes walk from central station and 5 minutes from Joordan.
Staff excellent (in fact more than excellent) Rooms quite big, clean, quiet, and with free wifi. He had dinner one night and it was very good. We ordered the 4 course menu, and we couldn't finish it. We also had breakfast, and it was ok.
SMALL THINGS THAT HOTEL CAN IMPROVE:
Breakfast: we stayed 5 nights, (5 breakfast) and every day you offer the same. Just an example: Your country is a "land of cheese" and you only offer the 3 same types of cheeses every day. It costs nothing change this. If possible, separate the 2 coffee makers, because sometimes there is a little "jam" to get a coffee.
Dinner: show cooking is very interesting, but if you sit in front of the kitchen and the extractor is not high enough and all the fish smell comes over you, the is disgusting.
Wifi: sometimes it runs very slowly.
