Booked by my partner for me for a significant birthday but unfortunately failed to deliver. This is not what I expect from a 4 star hotel at all. Booked the penthouse suite: its NOT a suite it's one dark room with a separate bathroom. The roof terrace is concrete slabs (with mold) with a chain link fence on 2 sides... More

Lovely room - roof terrace. Near enough town to be easily accessible but definite advantage in being out of the very centre. Nice area too. One downside - bill was inflated by around £30 by City Tax and debit card charge

As others have commented this hotel is off the main tourist drag in Amsterdam but easily accessible by trams either via Dam Square or Leidseplein routes. Enjoyable 10 minute walk down to Singelgracht and turn right to Leidseplein was my usual walking route. Hotel itself is modern, room - at the end of a maze like corridor - was excellent,though...

Nice location for walks around the city. Cold shower, but nice beds. Do not ask for taxi at the reception, they called a super expensive limo service... Other than that friendly staff and clean and safe.

This hotel is well situated within walking distance from Leidseplein. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. Loved the thick wafles!! The room was nice and modern and the bathroom even had underfloor heating. The only negative was that the room was extremely small. We coyld not open our suitcase on the floor.
