First class service from arrival through to check-out. The service in the restaurant was absolutely outstanding. The lady who served us - tall, slim and Dutch - was first class and a credit to the hotel. The concept of the Secret Menu was a bit of a worry when we booked it, but it needn't have been. The food and... More

We loved this hotel. Great value. Clean, well furnished, staff is very helpful, location is fantastic as well. Located 2 minutes from the tram stop. It almost feels in the middle, with the museum district and on the other side the city centre. I recommend buying a day tram pas when staying here. We stayed on the seventh floor and... More

Hotel was in a great location. However, upon arrival it was discovered that this hotel had no air-conditioning...the front desk did mention that each room did have a fan. The room was very hot. Opening the window only allowed all of the street noise to enter and the noise continued all throughout the night. The mattress is approx 4" thick... More

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!
