“Right next to Vondel Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

The hotel has a great location for anyone keen to experience Vondel park as well as old Amsterdam which is a short walk away or rent a bike round the corner. A delicious pancake house is also close by.

The hotel can be musty but I think we arrived just after a shampooing. Nice and spacious (when compared with other hotels in the area) and friendly staff.
Breakfast was great with eggs, bacon, cereals, fruit, yoghurt and toast/pastries on offer.

Room Tip: As high as possible

Nothing fancy about this place. It's clean, the people at the front desk were nice, and it was in a pretty good location. The price was what you'd expect, but there are no extra frills here. The bed was pretty comfy at least.

Close to many bars, clubs and restaurants. Close to several tram lines and Vondelpark The room and bathroom was always very neat and clean. The staff were great. There is an elevator and the streets are quiet at night, which you don't always find in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: You can choose an air conditioned room or not. The choice is yours. We managed fine without the airc...

It is what it is. The hotel is of good value considering how close it is to Leidse Square. We had a basement room and it actually isn't that bad. It had windows and the air con worked well in the basement. The room was quite cool. Beds are pretty comfy but we had single beds which I hadn't seen before. Shower was crap as it didn't drain or get very hot and the shower head kept turning to the left. Close to a good bike rental shop too. Overall I would go back.

The hotel is slightly hidden behind the main street, but very nearby to the main sights that we wanted to see (museums, bus tour etc), restaurants. Service was good in all aspects - we stayed just one night

I visited this hotel for 3 nights with friends. The hotel is very clean, however a little dated. The beds are very comfy and the rooms were cleaned every day to a high standard. This hotel is a bargain, and for the price people will be paying, what you get is fair and reasonable. The staff are also very helpful if you need help with trams, buses or directions.

This hotel is in a fab location, very close to Vondel Park, museums and Leidsplein square. Around the corner is also a bike rental shop that we used which was super convenient!

For a short break away in Amsterdam, where you're barely in the room, this hotel is just fine.
