“Very well-positioned for a cultural break.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

The hotel was relatively easy to find from Schiphol airport with a map. As taxis are fairly pricey at 40-50 euros, we followed the sign for buses and at stop B11, to the right of the IAMSTERDAM statue, caught the 197 bus to the Museumplein for 5 euros each. It actually stops outside the Concert-gebouw on Van Baerlestraat so you walk down the street, turning left into Nicolaas Maesstraat which takes you directly to the hotel which is on the corner of Nicolaas Maesstraat and Hobbemakade. As rain threatened on our return journey, we booked the Hotel Shuttlebus through reception which was 17 euros each.

I had informed the hotel that we were visiting Amsterdam to celebrate my husband's birthday, so it was a lovely surprise to receive a complimentary upgrade to a superior canal-view room. Facilities included iron, ironing board, large safe, mini-bar, ice bucket, good size desk and chair and a flat screen TV was installed during our stay. Excellent bio-degradable toiletries with a lovely tangy citrus smell: shampoo, shower gel, soap and body milk but no conditioner. Delicious breakfast of cereals with sprinkles of goji berries, chopped dried fruit, spelt, various chopped nuts, yogurts, fresh fruits; breads and cold cuts; bacon and scrambled eggs. Slightly expensive at 20 euros, if, like me, you can only manage a bowl of cereal in the morning, though it is reduced to 15 euros if booked in advance. The excellent coffee machine actually ground the beans before brewing. We took one dinner which was pleasant enough, though choice was limited as the King's Day celebrations the day before had virtually emptied the larder. However, you are just 5 minutes walk away from excellent restaurants such as the Pheun Thai (turn right down the Hobbemakade outside the hotel and it's just past the bridge); and the Balti House, Monteverde, Orontes and Juuls which are all to be found on Albert CuypStraat (turn right outside the hotel along Hobbemakade and then left across the bridge.)

You can actually see the Rijksmuseum from the hotel, and the Van Gogh and Stedelijk museums are close by, as are places to take canal trips and hop on hop off bus tours. The Heineken experience is also nearby. The Vondelpark is a welcome oasis of greenery and the canals outside the hotel are full of waterbirds and their chicks right now. The tram to the Centraal Station stops just 2 minutes away down the Ruysdaelstraat. If you know where you want to visit, you can save money and time queuing by visiting Tours and Tickets who have a ticket shop in the square near the museums www.tours-tickets.com and buying combi-tickets. You may also save money by buying an IAMSTERDAM card which provides free travel on most public transport and free or discounted entry to many museums and attractions.http://www.iamsterdam.com/en-GB/experience/deals/i-amsterdam-city-card Alternatively, the hotel has bicycles for hire.

Staff throughout the hotel were friendly and helpful. My only criticisms of the hotel would be the pillows - there was an extra one in our wardrobe but we did not find any of them comfortable - and the lack of storage space for clothes. We only had a rucksack each but I ended up rolling up our jumpers, t-shirts and underwear to store in the open shelf each side of the bed.

Room Tip: Higher floors have good views. Ask for a canal view.

This was a great hotel for my recent vacation. I was only in Amsterdam for a few nights but loved the location. It is walking distance to all the museums and close to 2 trams that run into the city center. The property was clean and neat and the front desk was mostly helpful. We opted to add on the buffet breakfast for $15/person/morning and I would say save the money and find something near by. We added it for the convenience but for the price it was not worth it. Again the staff was friendly but we felt it was average at best, nothing special. Also, you have to check out in person so make sure you leave enough time for that. When we were ready to check out there was a long line with both front desk attendants working as fast as they could.

We stayed here recently on a short break to Amsterdam. Definitely a good area to use as a base given the proximity of some of the museum attractions. Close also to canal transport options.

The hotel, part of a chain, was pleasant with friendly staff. The room suited our needs although there was very little wardrobe and drawer storage for clothes. A problem if you were staying longer than 2/3 nights possibly. Free wifi in the room was limited to a small bandwidth but adequate for picking up email and browsing less graphic orientated websites.

We ate at the hotel one night. The food was good, although the restaurant area for evening meals seems fairly small and the menu limited. The breakfasts were good with plenty of variety to the usual buffet.

This was a nice little hotel located almost across the street from the Van Gogh museam. It was also located 5 min from the 16/24 tram line which takes 10 min to get to central station. The hotel rate was great, it can be compared to a holiday inn express. Dont take the breakfast option as there are lots of good restaraunts in walking range for brunch. Hotel was clean and they have really nice Cribs for babies.

I was slightly apprehensive about this hotel after reading some negative reviews. We found the hotel to be very pleasant. Well located to explore - particularly close to the museums and the heineken experience. Our room was lovely no canal view but floor to ceiling windows. Room was spacious, clean and well equipt. Staff were helpful.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy with a lovely view of the canal. It was an easy walk to the Rijks and the Van Gogh museums. The tram stop, for all other locations, was less than a block away. Breakfast was excellent. We found a great Indian Restaurant just up the street, and there is a pub across the street. The TV could use an upgrade but that is not a high priority for me. They had lovely bath products. My only real complaint was a very hard pillow. I stayed two nights and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a canal view, it is lovely!

Our room was a "superior king" corner room with wide windows on two sides---beautiful views of the canal and neighborhood. The room and bath were very spacious, modern, clean, and stylish. The public areas of the hotel are attractive and well appointed, with lounge areas, a bar, big windows, and a very comfortable formal restaurant, in addition to the slightly less formal breakfast area. The breakfast buffet may be the best I have ever seen. Easy walking to museums and great restaurants. The staff were all first-rate and easily handled questions of all sorts. We will definitely be back!
