“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We were there twice in the past 2 weeks. The hotel is conveniently located about 5 min walk from Leidseplein, the bus connection to the airport and the many trams that cross through Amsterdam.

The room was comfortable and had both a shower and a bath. The hotel provided towels and toiletries. There was also a kettle with coffee and tea in the room. Everything was clean and neat. The staff was friendly and helpful. Although they serve breakfast at an additional cost, we never had breakfast there. We had internet access in the room which was very convenient.

We stayed at this hotel in Dec 2013. It is very nicely located, being close to the hop on hop off bus terminal, trams and Leidse Square. There were 3 of us and we had booked a triple room. We expected a double bed and a single, instead we got 3 single beds. There were damp patches in 2 corners of one wall and this caused a bit of a damp smell in the room especially when we first walked in. The bathroom was fine with adequate water pressure although the wash basin was tiny. The hotel does need a bit of a revamp. I am not sure what the other rooms are like. On the plus side the staff is extremely friendly and helpful like most of the people in Amsterdam! The dining room was cosy with a good breakfast selection. They were kind enough to to store our bags after checkout as we had an evening flight. Except for the few minor issues which I mentioned, it is a fairly decent hotel.

Room Tip: If you are booking a triple room make sure you request your sleeping arrangements upfront ie. 3 sing...

Not expensive, very cozy and just a few minutes walk from the leidspleine straße, which offers bars and restaurants and shops.
The staff is nice (like most people in Amsterdam) and will help you with whatever you need.
I don't know if the hotel offers breakfast, but we preferred to have a different kind if breakfast every morning in one of the local cafés.

Just stayed for Two nights. Hotel is clean and quiet. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Very close to Leidsplein square, which is great with its xmas theme and stalls. However, the hotel is a bit too far away from Dam square and the main buzz to walk all the time. Trams are very regular and cheap, so not a major problem.

I was impressed by the location to all the amenities, the trams took you anywhere from the great location of Leide square where you have a Hard Rock Cafe, lots of restaurants at hand and plenty of alcohol establishments if that's what you're after. The hotel was clean and breakfast was a good choice European style. Will visit again soon!

Good hotel in great location. Literally 5 minutes from leidsplein and all it has to offer.
We travelled in a group of 13 and were all placed on the same floor. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Great bar open until midnight, thanks to Mohammed for his friendly service.
Some of the group had breakfast 10€ if you book at checkin but 12€ otherwise. I believe it was a very good selection, however many of us went across to the main square were there was a great selection of bars/cafés were you got more for your money.
Brilliant situation for the hop on hop off bus/boat for tours around Amsterdam.
Hotel rooms were very clean and had a good nights sleep. The bathrooms had plenty of toiletries and clean towels every day.
I would certainly recommend a stay here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

it was generally ok. Arrived in Amsterdam when it was heavily raining, windy and cold. Since this is a budget hotel, i really expected a 2 or 3 star service since this is in Europe, it's of 2 star quality for me.. Nothing new, nothing fancy but the reason i booked it because i was given a special price from Agoda.. (was lucky enough to get it heavily discounted) and i guessed that it was centrally located. One can stay here only for a few nights which is favorable for me compared to a hostel where toilets are shared. I'll prefer to stay for a hotel with a private bathroom even on a budget.

Room Tip: reserve the higher floor rooms
