Nice Hotel really helpfully staff clean and tidy. Good location easy to get into centre with lots of trams and buses. 14, 7' 21 easy to get too and drivers very easy to get along with. Great 3 star accommodation. If you want 5 star do not stay here.

We (family of 4) stayed here for 3 nights in August. We bought 3 day GVB passes from tourist information at Schipol and then took the 69 GVB Bus and it dropped us off about 1 minutes walk from the hotel. The room was on the ground floor, very quiet and was spacious enough for the 4 of us. Breakfast... More

...wich is not easily to be found in Amsterdam, and quite often very expensive. This hotel has all the comfort, and quietness of the room, you need. Friendly, helpfull people and last but not least; we enjoyed a very complete breakfast. A good base to discover Amsterdam!

My daughters and I stayed here for three nights. The hotel is not the best to look at from the outside, and not greatly improved on the inside in the lobby area. They have a very small bar in the lobby area. The room was very clean and comfortable. We did not eat in the hotel (breakfast is 12 euros... More

The hotel is easily accessible by public transportation. Tram and bus stop is just a few minutes walk away. It was good value for money and rooms were clean. We were satisfied with the hotel, and would stay there again, mainly due to the convenient location. Only disadvantage is that the walls seem to be quite thin, and at night... More

The hotel was clean, rooms are fair size for Europe, with small, but more-than-adequate bathrooms. It is located in a residential neighborhood, but has easy access to tram lines that get you to the central (tourist) part of Amsterdam in about 20-30 minutes. They should promote better that the 69 city bus runs from the airport to the hotel. I... More

Modest hotel in a cut-off part of the city ...but the real surprise came after I went to bed, when a late checking in guest took a shower next door. Unlike other hotels, this one clearly does not trouble itself with sound insulation. I could hear EVERY sound the guest made. Most unpleasant - and the attitude is 'sorry, but... More

I have stayed here four times and would recommend this hotel. The hotel is located in a Turkish neighbourhood of Amsterdam and downtown is very easily accessible by tram.
