It's a reasonable hotel, located in a nice neighborhood. The rooms are smaller than they seem in the pictures. The breakfast is reasonable. Not everything is served on the open buffet. The staff may try to be nicer and helpful.

Housekeeping was excellent. We paid 846 Euros for four nights and that included breakfast. Continental style with meats and cheese and heated hard... More

This hotel is pleasantly situated on a side street in a nice part of Amsterdam. The number 4 tram from Centraal Station stops around the corner, which is very useful when going to and from the centre. On arrival we were warmly greeted and found our room to be a little on the small side but comfortable and extremely clean.... More

Did a lot of research trying to find a hotel suitable for a group of 26. The hotel was perfect - good clean rooms, great location and good breakfast included in price. The bar within the hotel does not have much selection but is great for al meeting up and then moving onto to more lively places

Well situated near Frederiksplein and on several tram routes. Museum quarter and restaurants near Heineken Experience are all within walking distance. Breakfast excellent and well stocked. Staff very friendly. Room clean, bathroom fine. Free wifi in the room. The bar is a bit hopeless - you are better off going to the one across the road!

The hotel is perfectly situated to access Amsterdam easily. Good tram accessibility as well as being able to walk to most places. Staff are very friendly and willing to help. Bar is limited, but was great to meet with friends before dinner. Very limited drinks and limited atmosphere, but as there were 26 of us we made our own. some... More

Four of us stayed for just the one night in one room. Three single beds with a fourth one which pulled down down from the wall. Room reasonably spacious with the fourth bed stowed.

The convenience of the location, the 24 hour opening, the assistance given by the day and evening staff. The breakfast is continental style but adequate, plenty of tea and coffee. The hotel is 10 minutes from the old town and the museum area by foot.
