This hotel was spotless and friendly , in a great location away from the busy streets .. But only a 2 minute walk from leidse square. Approximately a 20 min walk to dam square .
There is a beautiful park right next to the hotel , and trams and buses practically right outside .
Would definitely stay here again ...

I liked this hotel a lot. It's not very luxurious, but everything is in perfect condition. The location is wonderful as it's close to the museums, shops, bars and restaurants. The breakfast is very good also! If I como back to Amsterdam, I'll stay there for sure. I strongly recommend it. They have a big storage room where you can leave your luggage if necessary. We left us for 3 days and it was ok.

We have stayed at Best Western (Leidse) before and returned with our brother and sister-in-law for his 40th birthday. Once again found our stay to be very enjoyable. A warm welcome at 9.30 am and although our rooms were not ready no problem in storing our luggage so we could go and explore. Although set away from the bus route 5 minute walking distance to the Hard Rock Cafe, Hollands Casino and the start of the canal boat tours. Our room was extremely clean and although no air conditioning as we were very lucky with the weather they did supply a fan. Will definitely be going back.

This hotel is very well placed for getting round and about Amsterdam. Like other reviewers have said it is a bit worn around the edges but don't let that put you off. We found it to be very clean. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The staff behind the desk and the were really helpful and friendly.
As mentioned above we couldn't fault the hotel for its position. It was very quiet at night and we slept really well all four nights we were there. I was ready to write a bit more about it but Dave H below has already said it all a lot better than I could.
Would definitely return here when we come back to Amsterdam.

In total we spent 3 nights at this hotel, i chose this hotel originally because of its location and the location was really good. You can easy catch the tram from Central station to get to the hotel but don't try walking with luggage as we first did in the heat as it took at least 45 minutes. The room though wasn't very comfortable. No airconditioning with only a table fan to help cool us down in the summer. The bathroom had no vent or circulation, so every time we got back to our room we were hit with both the stuffiness of our room mixed with the smell of the bathroom, it was horrid. We had breakfast at the hotel, it was reasonably good and included a hot food selection.

Reading the other reviews I can only guess I was unlucky in my experience with this hotel. I was placed in an underground apartment with no opening windows. Both the way there and the room smelled bad. There was no elevator to the room, so we had to carry our luggage through an unsafe stair. The breakfast was only ok. I honestly felt like in a hostel, having paid the price of a 3 star hotel.
