The hotel is fine, very near voldenpark, big and tasty breakfast. The hotel location could be more central, but it's a easy 15 min walk to reach the city core (for example: red light distric). The only negative points was the intense smell of cigarettes smoke on the room.

Excellent value. clean rooms . friendly helpful staff. Have stayed here on more than one occasion and would book again without hesitation anytime visiting amsterdam. Perfect for my requirements. It's ideally situated next to the tram stop and convenience store in a nice area. The breakfast lounge is nice and naturally well lit and cosy having a good breakfast buffet.... More

The room was very basic, it has a to about 15 years old, there was no kettle, iron or even cups to drink from in the room. However, you're allowed to smoke in the hotel room as long as the window is open which is something you don't normally find with hotels these days

Hi Conor, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! Just to let you know, we have kettles and irons available in reception! For the kettle we do ask a 10 Euro deposit, which you'll get back when you return it. There are supposed to be plastic cups available in the room, so we will be investigating why... More

We stayed here after our original hotel told us they did not have a room for us, its very basic but the staff are lovely and the breakfast was great, loads of choice. The room was clean and roomy although it was a shared bathroom with another room. Would stay again.

They give more than they promise. Single room 9 m2 with washbasin and balcon (2 other rooms had access to the same balcony). Toilet and shower on the corridor, but never occupied. Good breakfast included. No elevator and really steep stears as everwhere in Amsterdam. Quiet at night time. Good wi-fi. A little worn out but good value. I recommend!

The staff were great. Had read a lot about the smell of smoke, but only near the designated smoking area. The rooms were clean. We had one with an ensuite (at an extra cost) but you can get a private 2 bedroom area with a share bathroom that our friends happily stayed in. Very reasonable for what we paid, especially... More

This hotel is located about a half hour walk from the main part of Amsterdam, which is not a problem at all because the walk is a very pretty one. About 10 minutes from Leidesplein which is where all the bars and restaurants are and close to the Rijkmuseum too. Opposite the hotel is a small shop and a Dominos... More

After seeing the previous reviews I was keen to stay here. My expectations must have been unrealistic as I don't share quite the same enthusiasm about this hotel. The room I stayed in was very basic and in need of a spruce up. I had a balcony but the window/door could only open slightly so no chance of going out... More

Nice large and clean rooms, helpfull staff and good organization. Quiet and vibrant position at the beginning of the Overtoom with tram stops a few steps away and the Albert Heijn supermarket just right to hotel's entrance. Smoking rooms available. Will come back!
