“Location - museums and designer shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Very comfortable hotel - located a little outside the main city centre but only a 20 min walk to Dam Square. Opposite the canal, a 5 min walk to the park, right beside museums and plenty of designer window shopping. Great situation to feel a bit of space but still near enough to access bars, cafes etc. Twin room was rather bijou but clean and comfortable - what you would expect from a hotel chain in a city center.

Over all it was pretty good place to stay. The people at the front desk were EXCELLANT, they were very accommodating, they helped us get a taxi for the day. The price was pretty good, compared to a lot of the places. Very close to the park, across the street from a restaurant. We got a handi cap room for 2 ladies travelling with us, which was down stairs, but they did have a lift. The room was HUGE which was good, but the Bathrrom was small and noway could a handi cap person get in and out of the tub! Our room the bathroom was alittle bigger, but once we got our 2 suit cases in the room, we had no where to walk! The other room another couple had, the room was larger and they were quite satisfied. The breakfast we prebought the day before, wasn't worth it, as far as we were concerned, mostly cold food and buffet style. the lady that took care of the food was VERY RUDE, I wish I would have got her name. The hotel also had happy hour in the evening, 2 for 1 drinks. All in all I would stay there again.

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.
