100 m from the flower-market, Restaurants near by. The Rooms backside are not on the speedway. Good hotel, excellent position to old Amsterdam. It's my next Choice to visit Amsterdam. Service is good and very friendly.

Nice hotel in the heart of Amsterdam. Rather big bathroom but not enough hooks to put the towels for the family on. The room was clean with good beds and bedding but the lay out of the furnisher made it seem a bit small for any family accommodation.
