We stayed here as part of our Cosmos tour. Excellent hotel, very comfortable and everything we needed. Was a shame we only stayed one night, would have been perfect for longer. Breakfast and Wifi included, a great spot to stay.

I cannot fault this hotel. It is the place to stay when you want to visit Amsterdam without actually being in Amsterdam. It is situated in a delightful and safe area. It is a very nice place to be. It has easy access to a large shopping center and a railway station for transport into and from the city. The...

Hotel was close to the train station and they gave us a 14th floor corner room which had a great view. Easy access to the city by train. Toilet broke and was flushing continually, they fixed it whilst we were away in the city. The bed was a bit hard and we both got bad backs in the mornings.

Situated 26 mins away by intercity from the airport, this hotel is ideally located. In a affluent area surrounded by banks and shops an ideal location to catch the 54 metro into central station. 4 day travel pass - 21 euros. The hotel staff greet you with a smile and allowed us to check in early as the room was...

We had a rather short 2 night stay while visiting our son in Amsterdam. The hotel itself is fairly standard 3 star: the room was fairly small but was clean and tidy. The soap in the shower didn't work but that is a minor point. What was annoying was the "available everywhere free wifi" didn't work. Internet in the reception...

The room was a good size, quiet and d away from traffic. If you wanted to go into town it would have taken 45 mins by public transport. The included meal was below average and only one choice was offered - chicken, if you dont like chicken well I guess you eat elsewhere

Efficient, modern hotel. We stayed on the ninth floor. The room was larger than most hotel rooms in this price bracket and had everything needed to hand. The decor was neutral. Coffee and tea making facilities were in the room, something which is often not provided in hotels in the Netherlands. The breakfast room was very busy, but the selection...
