“Another Place I Re-Visit Often”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I actually stayed earlier in the year, but I come here time and time again over the years, for the obvious reason that they are clean, comfortable, central, and provide excellent service. I also like that if you're a person who sleeps all day, you can leave linens towels and trash outside the door and the maids leave clean linens/etc in a bag on the doorknob....they've ALWAYS done this, every time I stay in the past decade, whereas many other hotels have very persistent housekeeping staff that may even burst in while the "Do Not Disturb" sign is on the door and you're screaming, "Nooo".....so really, I LOVE the housekeeping staff here for valuing my day-sleep :) This hotel also has offered great rates during low season.

I would suggest if arriving by train take a team as its a fair walk from the station. There is a team stop 2 minutes from hotel and a daily or 48hrs tram ticket is really worth the money €12.50 rooms are standard rooms. Breakfast is €10 if you notebook at reception day before or €12 on day. Typical buffet. 2 hot selections when we stayed scrambled eggs then sausage day 1 bacon day 2. Huge selection of cold choices. Roll croissant fruit bread cheese ham fruit salad yoghurt tea coffee.

Room Tip: Buy a team ticket

This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the main shopping area. It is in a quiet area away from the city.
The rooms are ideal for a city break. The three most important factors for me are location, comfortable bed and decent shower-tick on all these categories. The only reason I didn't give this maximum marks is it could do with a lick of paint in some areas.
Every member of staff was pleasant and keen to assist. The hotel clientele were mixed in age. The stag parties and hen parties didn't arrive till the Friday-ideal as I was leaving the Saturday afternoon!
Breakfast is continental style but with an attempt to cater for the British-always scrambled egg and sausage or bacon.

This hotel is a good location in Amsterdam. It's a quick tram ride from the train station and it is a 10 minute walk from the city centre. The hotel was fairly basic however. Our room was located on the bottom floor and if we had the curtains open. Many people walking by can easily see in. We had a safe which was great. However, no fridge in the room and no air conditioning made our stay worse. We had a small fan that didn't really help. Wi-fi was good. The bed was ok, bathroom was ok. All in all we probably got what we paid for.

This hotel is in a great location of Amsterdam. A short easy walk to Leidseplein bus & tram stop. Number 5 tram takes you right into centre square or a good 20 - 30 minute walk if you want. Lots of restaurants over near Leiseplein stop. Vondelpark, Rijkmuseum, Heineken Brewery a short walk from hotel. There is a bike hire place in the same street of hotel. The 197 Airport express bus also departs & arrives at the stop Leiseplein & just behind the Rijkmuseum also. Pay $5 to driver and you are dropped at Schiphol Airport. Also can get on at airport and dropped into Amsterdam. Google airport Express 197 there is a web page letting yo know it's stops and what hotels are within each stop. Room was clean & tidy, bed comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a room at the front of hotel heard no street noise. Wifi was good. No fridge in room. Had breakfast on our last day nothing special but adequate for what we wanted. A great cafe within 15 minute walk to get best breakfast and coffee in Amsterdam Bakers & Roasters. You won't be disappointed.

We found this hotel on the internet and as we had stayed at one of their hotels in Ireland decided to go for this one. Glad we did. It has a great location near the Vondelpark and Museum Quarter as well as night life on Leidseplein. Lovely and quiet and within a few streets bars cafes and nightlife etc. I cannot praise the staff enough as they were all friendly and helpful with any questions you had. Comfortable room and bathroom clean and tidy. Tea and coffee in the room which was changed daily.

This was our second visit here, this time just my wife and I for our 20th wedding anniversary. We were facing the rear of the hotel on the 3rd floor. The room was spacious enough, peaceful and well-ventilated with a cooling breeze over the gardens to the rear of the hotel. The staff left us a small gift and card which was a nice touch. Breakfast was good with a wide choice and our room was very clean and tidy with comfortable beds. Whilst the busy Leidseplein is just 2 minutes walk away, this is a quiet spot to relax. Vondelpark is just around the corner and Museumplein just 5 minutes walk. We wandered up Overtoom and found some great shops and cafes on the side streets there and also places like the 9 straatjes and the Jordaan are just 10 minutes away on foot. Great spot to stay and friendly staff.
