We stayed two nights as we were running the Amsterdam half marathon. The location was convenient for parking the car and avoiding driving in the city center and also near the metro to the olympic stadium. For being tourist in Amsterdam city center, the location is not good, as it takes half an hour by tram to get there. The... More

43rd Wedding Anniversary trip. Great location for a four-day city break. Not too near the centre, but quiet after hectic days sightseeing. Catch a 69 bus from the airport and it will drop you off at the hotel on its way to its destination. Take a 15 bus for the 20 mins ride to Dam Square to explore the city.... More

We stayed here as 2 separate couples for 5 nights coming into winter and it was brilliant. The rooms were clean and a good size, so we could both have our suitcases open at the same time. The staff were friendly enough and the buffet breakfast had a really good range of food and drink. There's wasn't any Gluten Free... More

I was staying here during mid September 2013, while attending the IBC conference at the RAI conference center. Although it is situated quite a distance away from the city center, the pram passes right outside the front door, so getting around Amsterdam is easy, the traveltime form RAI is about 20-25 minutes. The hotel itself offers nice rooms at typical... More

Our travel agent booked us into this hotel for our Amsterdam stay after a 2 week river cruise. Hotel is a bit dated, the front desk a bit too busy to help, and the bed sagging badly. The breakfast buffet is good and there is free wi-fi. The hotel is about 20 minute plus tram or bus ride from the... More

Staying here with my bf was not bad but it werent great. The hotel is modern when you walk in however we found the room to be quite old fashioned. Our toilet was blocked and after asking more than three times for it to be unblocked we had to wait to the following morning. Staff are pleasant enough. Best thing... More

We stayed here for four days and the corridor in desperate need of a vacum was never cleaned. Room was clean though. Price was decent, but they do advertice the location being a lot closer to the town senter than it is. All in all we would stay again for the good price, and easy access to public transportation.

The hotel was okay. Good value for money I suppose. Not very central but near the trams so it was easy to get from place to place. Also very near a local market which popped up on weekends so that was fun. Staff did not seem very affable or friendly but helped nonetheless. Rooms were not bad. Breakfast and dinner... More
