Stayed here for 2 nights 22-24 November. Couldn't find any fault. Fantastic location, our room was clean, en suite modern. Breakfast continental style but very good. Staff helpful and the lift was invaluable as we were on second floor. Price was excellent for location. Will definitely stay again .

The hotel is in a great location. Just next to the Dam Squire. Very close to central train station. The reception and personal are very kind and smiley. The rooms are old and the old windows can not stop the noise from the narrow street. Needs renovation especially in bathrooms. The breakfast is not full of assortments but the quality... More

Fabulous location but rooms a bit smelly and dated. Quiet enough but really did not sleep well as the bed was so soft when you were in it was difficult to move. Simple breakfast was, however, excellent. The seed shop and canabis cafe were not a problem.

Definitely in the heart of Amsterdam right off Dam Square. Room was quiet; however, felt 'cold'...not the temperature but the ambience of the place. Mattress was very soft. Breakfast was included and was as expected...basic but adequate. Staff were very helpful and no issue with service.

The hotel was not as smart as its promotional images, with rather tired décor in accommodation areas. However, in an excellent location on an historic street with good amenities and transport links close by. Generally comfortable, although we though it very expensive compared to similar in other European cities, leaving aside the drop in value of sterling against the Euro!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
