“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I booked this hotel not knowing what to expect. Hotel rates in Amsterdam Central are very expensive, so I opted at Amsterdam Zuid area & found this great hotel. Very accessible to the Main Central Train Station, Tram 2 will take you all the way to Rijksmuseum & the hotel is just walking distance. The rooms are small but functional & was impressed seeing dove soap & shampoo at our bathroom. First night, we walked thru Leidseplein - famous spot in Amsterdam to find food & ate at this "all you can eat ribs". Good food! Second day, we took Tram 2 again to St. Nicholas Church, then started walking down to Dam Square (where you can see Royal Palace, Madame Tussauds, National Monument, Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), & the upscale Dept Store De Bijenkorf). Waited 45 mins to get to Anne Frank House Museum, (recommend to buy tickets on line) then went shopping at Magna Plaza Shopping Center. I would recommend this hotel because of location, reasonable rate, friendliness of staff & clean rooms.

I love this hotel because of two reasons: the first one the location is outside the Rijksmuseum and two blocks away from the Van Gogh Museum that you can not miss, there are many shops and restaurants in the area as well. Rooms are functional a super power shower with dove soap and shampoo. Secondly, Staff, Miss Linda van Leeuwen was really awesome. I forgot my mobile in a taxi and she was really helpful in getting it back for me. It happens rarely that someone really gets in the matter with you and make everything in her power to help you. I would definitely stay again in this hotel, not only because it is nice, clean & in a perfect location, but also because people like Linda makes you feel that staff do care for you and whatever happens to you they will help & assist you gladly. One never knows what may happen during a trip!!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on a mini cruise deal.We loved this hotel the room was lovely, very well furnished, bathroom was beautiful it was fitted with a lovely glass shower cubicle, a power shower with lovely hot water,the bathroom door was obscured glass it was so nice, and supplied with Dove soap and shampoo dispensers.
There wasn't any tea or coffee making facilities in the room when we arrived but we only had to phone down to reception and they brought a tea/coffee making machine up and all what we needed to make a nice cuppa.
It was a buffet breakfast with a good sellection on display, we enjoyed the lovely hot rolls and delicious ham and i couldn't resist having a pastry not something I would normally eat in the morning for breakfast but they were so yummy.
The hotel was in a good location just a short walk into town with lots of nice restaurants near by and at very competitive prices offering really good meal deals.I would recommend this hotel we had a lovey stay and we couldn't fault it

The hotel offers clean modern rooms. The rooms are a bit small but very functional. Breakfast and wifi included. The breakfast was awesome. The location is outside of the center of the city but next to the Rijksmuseum. Many shops and restaurants in the area. About a 20 minute walk to the center of the city. I would stay here again.

Hotel very well located (restaurants, bars and a good park for running are quite close).
The room was very small, not very convenient for medium to long stay. The shower was nice, but the bathroom small, as well as beds. WIFI was good.
Breakfast very limited, no gym.
Staff is very professional and kind.
