Friendly staff, great location, The rooms were super clean and a good size By Amsterdam standards. I'm English so having a bar down stair was handy and I made good use of that. Cool coffee machine in the rooms, it's something a little different to all the rest, great hotel!

I just spent two nights here with my 18-yr old daughter. We had a Splendid City King room on one of the higher floors, facing the street. It was perfectly clean and nicely designed, with a fantastically comfortable bed. Small bathroom but nice, with a deep tub and overhead rainforest showerhead. It's very conveniently located in the city center, but... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was just awful. No air con, makes the room unbearable!!! Theres no fridge to store water so you end up drinking pretty much boiling water. Also, the front desk staff are so RUDE, not welcoming at all! When asked a question about the difference between two taxi prices the lady laughed in... More

The hotel was very modern and within easy walking distance of all the major attractions. The staff were always pleasant and helpful giving recommendations for lunch away from the main tourist areas. We were given a quiet room at the back of the hotel which was perfect, there was no street noise at all. An excellent base to visit Amsterdam... More

Friendly staff, good location and clean rooms. The rooms are not large, but this is to be expected in such a crowded city. Previous reviews have mentioned lack of air con. The hotel have provided fans in the rooms which help. Ice creams in lobby too. Only small moan is that there is the lovely coffee makers in the room,... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful and make our stay nice. The hotel itself is very nice looking and clean. The rooms were as big as expected and the room was well worth the money. Location is very nice and a short walk from many nice cafes and shops as well as the museums.

The location was the best -- easy walking to everywhere we wanted to go. The staff exceeded our expectations greatly. They were so warm and welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. No air conditioning but with a fan and windows that opened, it was fine.
