“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Great location by the canal - a fab place to be based for the Easter weekend. The staff were all very courteous and helpful. The room is a little small but this was expected and it had everything we needed. The bathroom was also very pleasant, lovely shower.
We did ask for a 10am wake up call which we received at 1020... but we were up already so it was fine!
We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the canal

Me and my girlfriend stayed here at the end of February. Everything we expected and more.picturesque views of the herengracht canal so relaxing. Staff were excellent very friendly and would help you with anything. Rooms were clean and cosy. Bathroom was spotless wjth powerful hot showers perfect for a European city break. Ideal location near dam square. Would highly recommend this hotel. Their was a coffee shop next door also however one of the men in there was extremely rude and we decided to go elsewhere however the times hotel exceeded my expectations. Will be coming back in the near future!

I was at The Times Hotel for 1 Week and i enjoyed it very much. The rooms where well decorated(including the pictures on the wall), and the bathrooms where modern. The Times Hotel has a wonderful reception and wonderful staff(the staff were very helpful and super kind). The Times Hotel serves a wonderful breakfast
(I think the breakfast is worth the price), And i will never forget the WONDERFUL coffee machine.
So i loved my stay at The Times Hotel, I recomend it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have stayed for two nights at this hotel.Our room had a canal view.The room was a little bit small but this didn't make us unhappy as the room was clean,bed was comfortable,staff was very helpful.We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so I have no comments on that.In summary,I exactly advise the hotel to young couples who will stay 2 -4 days.As an addtional point, the hotel is only 10 -15 min. to the dam square and 10 min.to the central station.

Room Tip: I advise for you to choose a room with canal view.

Rooms are small but have everything you need. We stayed for 3 nights and rooms (three in total) were cleaned every day. Showers are nice and powerful. Staff on reception are very helpful and even managed to get us a taxi on NYE.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We have never seen --let alone stayed-- a hotel room as small as this one. Our luggages didnt fit the room, our legs didnt fit the bed, our eyes didnt fit the window to see the canal view since we are not smurfs. The room pictures do not reflect the truth for sure. The hotel has only 2 double beds. Definately not suitable after the age of 30.. We left the building immediately to find a suitable place to stay.

The hotel was well situated, 5-10 minute walk from Dam Square, restaurants and shopping mall.
The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, well maintained and pleasant.

We experienced a problem with our safe (our fault) and the staff were quick to respond, and nothing seemed too much trouble.

We will certainly be staying again (next year).
