“Great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

This hotel was lovely. The art work is something very unique. Rooms are beautiful, service -excellent. marcella at reception was super friendly and very helpful. Travel was very simple as the bus is right outside the hotel. It's very simple to even travel to the airport with luggage. However if you prefer staying out after 12 then you should choose a hotel in Central Amsterdam or Dam square as the last bus is at 12:15. Other than that, it's perfecto.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We stayed in the 3 star rooms. The room said non-smoking but smelled like old smoke but this can't be the hotel's fault because all the rooms down our corridor had 'no smoking' painting on the doors, so must have just been some inconsiderate guests.

The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the telly had BBC 1 and 2 which was nice when we were sleepy from days of cycling. As was the bath - big with plenty of hot water and the free toiletries smelled really nice :)

We couldn't hear any of the other guests when in our room, so had completely uninterrupted sleep and, because the hotel is out of town, there's no street noise from tourists.

The hotel is a 10 minute cycle (or 20 minute bus ride) from the city centre. Bikes are available for rent which we took full advantage of. The surroundings are really nice, right near Westerpark and the Jordaan, which in my opinion is much nicer than the stag-party infested Old Town, is even closer than the centre (perhaps a 10 minute walk?) and has good restaurants and cafés.

The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful, answering all the weird questions I threw at them and phoning in endless restaurant reservations for us! Oh, and the reception area is a lovely big open space with lots of art work.

Overall, Amsterdam is designed for cycling so the distance of the hotel from the city centre is not an issue and you get to escape the crowds and get a good night's sleep.

For a three star hotel, this is pretty damn amazing. The beds were heavenly (just as the room)! I had four pillows, all for myself in a comfy bed. That alone is something I like: instead of two silly pillows (you mostly have to share with another person, so one for each), you actually have four (or two pp) decent pillows. As for the look of the room: nothing to say on that either. I also had a good view! When it comes to the breakfast, I can only say that it was perfect. They had everything a breakfast needed and it actually was better than some 4-star hotels I've been to. I really enjoyed the entire look of the hotel as well. But, something which struck me most was the fact that the manager (or at least I think it was him) was always present. He helped out his personnel with a smile, was keen to answer questions, cleaned your table, helped you with your luggage... I don't see that kind of managers often, so that really makes your stay better. Also, the staff was very friendly and you could ask them anything. Always a cheerful answer! Definitely a must go.

Lovely hotel, helpful staff and the breakfast and evening meal was fantastic. Lovely art work to see. Not far from town especially if you use the day pass for transport and attractions. Lovely city would advice to go as lots to do and see.

The front desk staff was excellent, very professional, helpful and friendly.
Very good location with bus stop in-front of hotel to city centre and train station.
Room was clean.
My only complaint was the bed which I found to soft and did not get a good nights sleep.
