We stayed for an overnight visit with two adults and two children in a quad room with private shower. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly from booking the room to checkout. We would definitely stay again. Perfect location, beautiful view, comfortable and clean room.

Stayed in a comfortable triple room. The rooms were simply appointed with firm beds and a good shower room. The room was clean and the reception staff were friendly and efficient. It's more basic than I'd usual choose but for the price, I'd recommend it.

We were a group of 9 females on a mum and daughter trip to Amsterdam. I was apprehensive when we booked it but have to say it was surprisingly good.

We recently stayed here for our girls trip. Seeing as we paid so little for the room we didn't have high expectations, but the hotel had everything we needed and was clean with comfy beds and helpful and friendly staff.

Great location for the city and the square has great bars right on the doorstep, the only downside is the amount of stairs but I guess you get a work out while your there! Hotel is really clean, and well equipped for all our needs. Would recommend as a great base but probably not the best for a romantic getaway... More
