We visited this property in the last week of August and stayed for 2 nights. It is slightly away from the city centre but it is very well connected. It is situated right next to a tram stop and metro station. It takes about 20 mins to reach the city centre on tram 7. We had a pleasant stay and... More

Where shall I start... First of all, they advertise the hotel as having "no hidden surprises", as you can read at the entrance. Biggest rip off of all times. They make you believe everything is inclusive, but actually it is not. For people living here is especially bothering, and money consuming. Washing your clothes can take around 5 euros per... More

Hi Serena, Thank you for taking the time to detail your experience as a Semester guest with us. It would be a euphemism to say that you’re disappointed. I am truly sorry about the chaotic start you have experienced. It’s definitely not a usual review nor a usual experience. If we haven’t been in touch directly yet, I will make... More

The hotel itself looks like student campus but cleaner and quieter. Rooms are small but clean and cozy. The hotel is located not in the center of the city. So it is quiet and there are no crowds outside like in the center.The tram stop and metro station are just couple of minutes away, so one may go to the... More

I spent two nights in this Hotel. My room was very nice and clean. Nice places also (free fitness room, nice restaurant). But the staff of the hotel was very unfriendly - and obviously did not even try to be friendly - which was really sad for the price I paid to stay there. Being friendly in a hotel is... More

The hotel left us wanting for nothing, from the comfy bed to the clean and modern bathroom it had everything a decent hotel should have and at a fair price. The tram and metro stations are just outside the front door and run like clockwork so no overpriced taxis required either. Throughly enjoyed my stay and will return.

A very nice welcome and very good service, special and creative, with lots of very welcome and pleasant little tricks, all good except for the breakfast, not included in the total price. The hotel is on the outskirts and is just a few stops by tram from the center of Amsterdam. Everything is clean and perfect, and they have towels,... More

Really great budget hotel, exteremly cheap comparing to the other hotels. It is clrean, service is good + lot of joyful acctiviteis (tennis, pool, gym). However, the bar starts to work late and closes early. It is not in the center, but easily accesible with the public transport (tram and metro).
