“Not as bad as some of the bad reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

I stayed here for three nights in May 2014. After reading some of the terrible reviews i was very aprehensive to stay, i even bought my own bug spray after reading the reviews that mentioned bed bugs. Well they seemed to have rectified most of the issues former reviews were complaining about. The rooms are small but clean and functional. The area is very quiet and you are a 15 minute walk to central Amsterdam or a tram ride away. The beds and matresses appear to be new and clean. The only complaint i have is i paid around 70 euros per night, which for what it is, is pricey. I would say not worth more than 50 euros per night.

Very poor hotel, not clean, cramped, breakfast poor. If you can find somewhere else, please do so. I only stayed here as Amsterdam was packed due to a couple of conferences. It's only good point for me was it was near to my office. A serious point is the real lack of security in the hotel which could cost you dear - find somewher else.

Room Tip: Dont put yourself in the position of having to choose a room.

The room (double private) was crazy small and very hot... But apart from that it was ok. Clean and outdated. Staff were very helpful. Bike rental was very cheap and convenient. Easy enough access to central or anywhere else via bus/tram. Supermarket close.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a six week trip around europe. The hotel is very reasonably priced, we had breakfast included in our room rate which was great as there was such a huge selection and was great value.

The hotel itself is fairly dated but the rooms and bathrooms are new and very modern. we had a triple bed room, which was fine for us as we were only staying 2 nights and were out all day but there was very little room to do anything.

The Hotel itself isnt in the city centre. it is a tram ride away, approx 15mins, but this didnt really bother us.

Staff could be a bit more friendly but overall it was a very good stay and i would certainly recomend it to others.

Nice hotel for a couple of nights. Very good location tram and train stations near, 5 minutes walking, 7 minutes until the city center by tram. Supermarket and coffees near by the hotel. The staff was friendly.
