“Excellent ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights while in amsterdam. The staff were extremely friendly, laid back and helpful. When I first booked it, I saw it was only 1/2 star. I feared the worst but couldn't believe how lovely it was. Room was a good size and I was sharing with my father. Bathroom was stunning, was actually a very chic wet room. Food in the cafe downstairs was very good and reasonably priced compared to the most of Amsterdam. Hotel was a stones throw from Dam square and transport was abundant on your doorstep. I would definately stay here again. It is currently being renovated, which is why I think the room was so nice. Only downside was being woken at 9am by builders working on the rooms downstairs. If you are looking for somewhere at a good price to stay while still being nice and clean, then this is the hotel for you.

I stayed here for one night on a flight layover.

The hotel is only a 5+ minute walk from the Central Train Station. Great location.

The room was clean and bed was comfortable. Normal Amsterdam street noise lulled me to sleep.

I was provided with a nice little complimentary breakfast in the morning. This was a nice surprise and the coffee was great.

we walked in and asked for help and straight away we were greeted by friendly staff who did there up most to help us, after our stay here we will be booking this place every time we stay in Amsterdam as its a great find! dont let the two star rating put you off this was at least a 4 star hotel and room 21 was amazing! great food! the owner is a lovely friendly guy and the staff were just great, this made our stay just wonderful, and when we had checked out the room they were happy to keep hold of our luggage for the whole day til our flight, cant ask for anything else just friendly and wonderful! highly recommend!!!

Room Tip: room 21 is just romantic and beautiful very quiet and the walk in shower room was just amazing!

Well where to start, we arrived at the hotel a few hours before checkin which was 2pm. We asked if there was any chance of checking in before as the wheather was bad, so wanted to dry of and change, the response given by the bar lady was as if I'd asked her for a free night stay. After abruptly being told no, we wondered around the shops until checkin.
My mum HELD the room on her credit card on the understanding that payment was made on arrival, only to find out when we did checkin they took full payment from her card of nearly £750 (we had 3 rooms) we explained to the lady that in no where on the booking did it say that the card would be charge BEFORE checkin, as we were all paying separately cash on arrival. The lady said it had been done and there was no way of rectifying this unless we wanted to pay twice (extremley rude for someone whom just took it upon herself to take payment without the card holders autorisation) . Totally unacceptable to do without permission.
When we checked into the room they were clean, but in no way did they reflect the price we paid for superior rooms. There were buliding works so there was no heating for the first few hours until the work men had finished, which meant it was absolutely freezing.
The safe was broken, and when asking reception it seemed to much trouble to help out.
The rooms were basic but we expected that as it was only a 1* hotel, however found it extremely expensive for the lack of facilities and I can only imagine what the basic room was like.
Overall it was the unfriendly attitude of the staff that ruined our stay, every thing was to much trouble for them, manners and good customer service cost nothing and when somebody is paying to stay at the hotel you represent, a smile goes a long way. I have been to Amsterdame a number of times staying at different hotels, this was by far the most expensive and the worst i have stayed at. Would not recommend and most defiantly would NOT return.

Room Tip: Use a different hotel
