“Shame we were allocated poor room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The hotel is in a great location. Our second visit to Amsterdam and hoped we had chosen well. Room 24 was on the ground floor "inside" of the hotel. Our window looked out onto the inner tube which meant no proper daylight and curtains had to be closed 24/7 as other inside windows could see in. The heat in our cupboard of a bedroom was almost unbearable. A large ceiling fan did help and had to be left on all night. The window could not be left open as there was a continuous loud noise which we think was boiler firing up supplying hot water. Clean linen on beds and towels changed daily. Dusty skirting boards.Tiny wardrobe and no drawers. Staff efficient and friendly. Good breakfast in a small breakfast room which could be very busy as more guests than tables.

Room Tip: Speak to the hotel and ask for room on outside/ canal side of hotel and book the best one you can as...

Amsterdam has the highest concentration of people per square kilometer in Europe, so don't expect a big room. I chose this hotel because it had an elevator since all the stairs in Amsterdam are quite tiny. This is in a quiet area near the museums and overlooking the canal. The room is very basic, but there is an elevator and reliable wifi. The staff is so nice. When I checked in, the manager asked me what I wanted to see and gave me a map, marking off all the places I wanted to go so I could plan my itinerary. Be sure to visit one of the ticket and tour kiosks to buy your tickets ahead of time so you don't have to stand in line. Also, take a day to go on a tour of the windmills, clog-making and cheese factory so you can experience life outside of the city.

When you look for a Hotel by the city map, the reviews or the pictures, you try to choose the best, We were very lucky with this election. The location was perfect: in a walking distance to everything but in a quiet street. The decoracion was really nice, the place was very clean the service ,everithig was better than expected for the price we paid...The triple room with canal views, the room 210, was really homelike.
No cupboard , only hangers in the room...Enough for a short stay..

Room Tip: quiet street,close to everything!!

Stayed here for two nights.
Booked two single canal view rooms - got 2 doubles, 1 that looked out onto the roof and back and one the canal if you stood on tip toes. On check in the receptionist tried to charge is £138 instead of £101.Luckily we had printed confirmation with us.
No explanation as to why we didn't have the rooms we booked (later enquiries revealed that the rooms we had booked were "having maintenance".
One room on third floor was small clean but looked onto roof. One room on 4th floor, very very tatty. `no plug socket except the one up on the wall with tv. `Unless you want to stand on a desk and doing your hair or have your mobile hanging swinging on charge, its not very good.
After half an hour or so I was presented with a mobile and adapter to plug multiple things in. So I climbed up and duly plugged it - it didn't reach so had to balance on various things.
The room on floor 4 needs gutting. There are a number of light bulbs over your head on the bed - you might get quite a burn if you wanted to read in bed etc. The towels are little bigger than a tea towel so take your own. There was lots of rubbish out the front of the hotel.

The only good points to hotel is the location, mins walk from the tram and the staff were very helpful.

Would I return - unless they spruce this hotel up and clean it - def not! It as 3* - how I dont know.

Great location, clean, average breakfast, no A/C, amenities and service need simple improvements (our 3 bed room had no cupboard or any other equipment to help us organize. This is not a hotel room but a dormitory. We were given only body-towels and one day none at all! After complining we got the full set. However only one hook in the shower to hang all up?)

No stream in the shower. Water won't got down in the toilet and also not in the shower- resulting in daily flooding in the bathroom with not enough towels to cope with it. Service was bad. Overall bad experience. Would never come back.
