“Location and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Being from the netherlands I know exactly how relative expensive hotels are in Amsterdam.
But this one is real value for money.
And the location is excellent, near the station and an excellent public transport at the front of your door. And still quiet when you have a room on the higher floors.

Room Tip: high floor and a view at the west side

This hotel was absolutely amazing from as soon as we got there.
From the airport it is easily found with a train journey to Centraal Station & then a short (10 mintue) walk to the hotel, or 1 tram stop on the number 26 tram.
When we arrived, it was 11am and check in wasn't until 3pm but we were given a room straight away which was on the 10th floor.
The room was lovely with very comfortable beds, lots of space, a nice bathroom with powerful shower & a fantastic view over the water.
We ordered room service a few nights and the food was lovely, breakfast was very good with all you could imagine, although the sausages & bacon were not the same as a full english! (Not that I expected any different).

Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay here and although it is a 10 minute walk from the center it was quite nice to be out of the hustle and bustle and if we couldnt face the walk there is a tram stop right outside & the hotel offer a shuttle service every half an hour.

We thoroughly enjoyed amsterdam and I honestly think that was down to many things but mostly because of this beautiful hotel. All the staff are lovely and friendly and will help you with anything you need.

Highly reccommended hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up and facing the river - excellent views!

My partner and I stayed here for a long weekend in January.
Firstly the location, although it says it is 'outside' the centre - it maybe but it is the perfect location. Just outside all the husle where you can sleep in piece in a very respectful hotel yet walk aprox 10 mins (my partner would definately rather pay a taxi the walk on 'holiday' but it's a beautiful walk next to the water) and after passing a lovely starbooks (coffee stop) your in it all, not to mention the station been the first you hit so you can go anywhere!!
The hotel for us was far far better than expected. The rooms are very very tasteful, infact I'm desperate for the carpet in my hall! With honestly, breathtaking views over the water and Amsterdam.
All in all -- will be returning to this exact hotel if/when we return and will 100% recommend.

Have to say it - this hotels staff has got service to a benchmark . From the moment you walk to checking out. We stayed just the one night. Arrived early and left luggage with them (they locked it away stating it was there responsibility now) very reassuring. Well presented stay with personality. Hotel well situated for tram and has free shuttle on the hour to central. Checked out for midday again luggage kept safe till 16:30 so we could still enjoy the day without carrying luggage. Clean Safe and an enjoyable stay. Thankyou

Me and hubby and 5 kids (age 18-31) spent the weekend (2 nights) from the 1st-3rd for my 50th and we had such a brilliant time mainly due to hotel and it's location which is fabulous. Great food from morning to eve we only ate there as it was so good. The staff are the most helpful we have ever come across nothing to much trouble. The views are amazing and the hotel is of a very high standard just perfect we all loved it. Shuttle bus was great because from central station you can get to everywhere. We will defiantly be retuning thank you for everything especially birthday choc and Buck's Fizz at breakfast, nice touch.

Found this a great option for a weekend stay. Loved our quiet 18th floor room, which had absolutely everything we needed. All of the staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Location-wise it is not quite in the centre but near enough not to be a problem. We actually like to gain a little peace and quiet at the end of the day.

We should have paid more attention to the hotel website for arrival info, as the central station forecourt is a confusing place, with no-one to ask for assistance. If you don't pre-book the hotel shuttle to pick you up, it's a fairly easy walk: exit the station at the back (past platform 14), turn right, and take the road alongside the water's edge (but don't walk by the water itself as the path disappears). Alternatively, it is one tram stop, No. 26, which, if you are looking out of the front station entrance, can be found to the left. The tram starts and stops here so you can't go in the wrong direction.

Very much enjoyed two restaurants for evening meals: "Pasta Vino" was a local option when we didn't feel like venturing back into the city centre. It was recommended by the concierge and they treated us so well, also serving lovely food. The other was "De Portugees" on Zeedijk, in between the central station and the start of the Red Light district. Both serving good food at reasonable prices, with lovely staff.

We loved our trip... the Dutch are so friendly!

Room Tip: The view from the upper floors is amazing!
