We stayed here in January for a long weekend, the staff were very nice and helpful, the hotel was very well placed just outside the centre of Amsterdam, but travelling in and out was fine on the trams and buses.
Our room was adequate and clean, the shower was sometimes unpredictable, but we got used to that.
The breakfast was superb, with plenty of choice of hot and cold, all in all a very nice experience ...

Came to stay here with young daughter and husband on a little break and had a lovely stay! The hotel room was clean and well serviced. The staff (both reception and breakfast) were very friendly. It was a great price on Groupon and will def stay with best western again!

Great location; 2minute walk to bus/tram stop (20mins to centre), supermarket 1 min, 1/2 hour via train to airport!

Only things I would like to suggest for hotel to change are... There is only 1 highchair, maybe a few more as morning we were without. The other is, update hairdryers as they keep overheating and turning off...only reasons I only have 4 stars.

Thanks for a lovely stay! :-)

We had a room on the 9th floor of the hotel, It had all the amenities, tea/coffee, hairdryer in the bathroom, complimentary miniatures etc so it was quite a comfortable stay. The room was a little small as it wasn't a corner room and the bathroom was lovely, but most importantly clean. Only thing we didn't like was the duvet on the bed which was too small, it just about covered the top of the bed with nothing overhanging.

Breakfast was lovely with a nice selection, only thing missing was sausages.

Staff are lovely and helpful

Location was ok as trams and busses run regularly. Bus 21 for central Dam which takes about 20mins and stops right at the back of the hotel. We bought two 48 hour tickets which cost 12 euro which were really good value for money as you can use them on all buses and trams.

Overall it was a nice stay.

Quiet room on 7th floor, nice bed linen and towels. We extended with one day. The reception staff was very helpful with bicycle hire and directions. Everyday market on the plein behind the hotel. Various supermarkets and fast food vendors within walking distance. Lovely private bar late night on 1st floor. Would definitely stay there again.
