Nice place! Was a long walk from station but nice views and perfect if you get a bike. Clean rooms private toilet, can be a little small but was comfortable. Loved staying here as so close to the park.

I am extremely disappointed and dissatisfied with the hotel I booked through booking.com. We checked into our hotel and got to our room, I was shocked to see how small and empty it was. There were no wardrobes to hold any of our clothing, no chest of drawers, no bedside cabinets, nothing. Not even tea/coffee facilities. It was literally the...

When arriving at hotel we didn't realise that reception was a few doors to the left of the actual hotel bit so that was bit confusing! As we arrived before check in time we couldn't check in till later. The room did have a funny smell to it as you walked in but couldn't really smell it after being there...

The hotel location is perfect, the view is amazing , but the room was very very small, the ladder was very tiny and scary, they give us a room in the 4th floor and we shocked that there is no elevator, as it was too hard when we check in and out and carry on our bags to upstairs

After reading some of the more negative reviews on here my boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The room was not very big, but spacious enough for a long weekend break. It was very clean and the bathroom was spotless, if a little cramped. As a place to sleep at night it suited us nicely with a...

This hotel is definitely worth the money spent, comparing the prices for the accomodation in Amsterdam. I didn't have high expectations for this hotel, but once me and my friend booked the room with 2 clean beds and the nice view over canals, we were not dissapointed. Yes, we could hear the noise from the corridor and from other rooms,...

Booked this hotel for a few days away with my partner and when we got there first impressions were terrible! Hotel lobby is in a separate building from the rooms, staff were very rude talking on the phone while serving customers and one ginger staff member was eating pizza and drinking with mates when we walked in to collect our...

After we booked we read the reviews and was dreading it but it's really lovely and the staff are amazing. house keeping comes everyday 11am and it's 5 minute tram ride from dam square right by the Heineken experience. There is also a street market which is a 10 minute walk away. Don't believe the reviews my room was really...

Stayed here in November and payed on arrival. Then in December they took the money again then this morning another payment has been taken! The hotel says it's booking.com at fault and booking.com say the hotel? So now I'm overdrawn in my bank and nobody is taking the blame. Never again

Clean and modern rooms, and good location (30 minute scenic walk from centre). Some staff weren't very welcoming and lack of storage facilities in the actual rooms (wardrobes, shelves etc.) Yes there is a smell on the ground floor but not in the the actual rooms. Good for a few nights stay.

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
