The hotel is lovely, rooms are nice with tea and coffee facilities. We stayed downstairs and the stairs are very steep and tiny but the whole place is funky and it's an enjoyable experience. Front desk bent over backwards for us, always pleasant and friendly whenever we had a question. There is a laundromat not too far away as well... More

We were put into rooms on the basement of the hotel, without previous Informations about this. The rooms were full of mold, even sleeping in this room with the smell of mold was not able. The worst experience was the behaviour of the staff. The flush on the toilet was operated-according to a sign found near the toilet- through an... More

While this hotel is on the canal, and many have raved about its canal view rooms and their fantastic stays here, you may have a difference experience depending on which room you get. Beware that this hotel is located directly behind restaurants and bars on Rembrandt Square, which is quite a party scene at night. A small service alley runs... More

We stayed in Amsterdam for just 2 nights and were very keen to be close to the centre but not to pay extortionate prices for a short break. Getting to the Hotel is quite easy; we got a train to 'Centraal' and a tram from there (we got a taxi from the hotel to the train station which only cost... More

The hotel can be reached on foot from the main train station very easily. It's a small hotel in very old building uneven floors, very steep stairs. The reception is unattended at night even during the day you need to open the food yourself. No air condition in the hotel and cheap hand soap as shower gel. Staff were polite... More

Lovely small hotel with character, situated I the heart of Amsterdam's bars and restaurants. Warm welcome on arrival and staff were helpful throughout, without being overbearing. The room was on the 2nd floor and the stairs are definitely not suitable if you're not stable on your feet - very steep and each step is very narrow, but that just adds... More
