“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We stayed in the Dream Room for 5 nights. It was absolutely lovely! The room itself is quite small but perfectly formed. Not much space for hanging and storing clothes but we were fine with that! The bed is huge and very comfy with a memory foam mattress. It is two single beds pushed together but it wasn't a problem really.The sink, hob and fridge are neatly hidden in a big cupboard with all the utensils you could need to make light meals should you wish to. There was a coffee machine and special coffee bags so you can make yourself a nice fresh coffee. Flat screen TV and CD player.

The bathroom is very small but done to a high standard with a lovely glass sink and glass cube wall seperating the shower. I would say that if you are on the larger side you would not feel comfortable in this bathroom as it would be a very tight squeeze indeed! (I understand the other rooms are much bigger).

Fokko was really nice and welcoming. The lady who cleaned our room did a wonderful job. There is no reception or anything like that so you are left to your own devices which is exactly what we wanted. If you need anything though then Fokko is more than happy to help and just a phone call away.

The only thing I would mention is that the towels were cleaned every day which I didn't think was necessary as I'm used to using a towel more than once and think it's more environmentally friendly to re-use a few times.

The hotel is in walking distance of many nice bars and restaurants. We like to walk so we didn't catch the tram at any point but there is tram stop just up the road.

POSITIVE: The size of the room is decent compare to the other hotels which are only 10sqm2. The area is very quiet so we slept very well at night. the room is very clean and is kept clean everyday by the housekeeper. Service wise is very pleasant- the housekeeper MARIA helped us bring our bags into our room- gave us free maps and gave us a few spots to shop. The hotel is only 3min walk away from the tram which can basically take you to Dam square/Centraal Station. WIFI was very strong in our room. Lots of equipment in the kitchen area and towels in the bathroom was replaced daily.

NEGATIVE: There was no lifts and we were on the top level- and the stairs were very steep and narrow! Be careful and don't rush climbing up/down the stairs or you will truly trip and fall. Otherwise no other complaints.

I stayed 9 days in this place and I really enjoyed it: Large beds & excellent mattresses, clean room, excellent free wifi, beautiful and functional curtains, good temperature regulation (very fast warm). I will definitely book this place again.

Room Tip: Bathroom of the Dream Room is small but functional; the room as a practical kitchenette.

Stayed for a long weekend at the end of September, we were both excited by the reviews and the hotel didnt quite live up to the billing.
The welcome was brusque and short, there was confusion on how to pay and we had to ask a couple of times to be talked through a map and where we could get food at 9pm (as we had arrived late evening).
There were a few minor issues with the room, nothing major, but just detracted from the hotel.
It's well located and we enjoyed the trips (especially the canals) and eventually saw Fokko again as we were leaving for the airport.
Maybe it just wasnt for us

My hubby and I stayed at the Amstel Corner for 2 nights during our 3 weeks European vacation this past May. The hotel was bit tough to find initially only because we were't sure of where we were going but once you got used to it you find that it's very centrally located. We stayed in the smallest suite which was perfect for 2 people and quite spacious by European standards. It had a cute little kitchenette in what looked like an armoire and the bed was extremely comfy which is great after all the walking you do in Amsterdam. The staff was extremely friendly and I would definitely stay there again if I were to go back to Amsterdam.

I wouldn't call this a hotel, as there are no facilities, but it was a great place to stay. The house is in a great location right on a canal, a few minutes walk from trams and tube. Fokko was very welcoming and efficient. The two rooms we took were spacious for Amsterdam, well equipped with kitchenettes, clean modern bathrooms, modern furniture and comfy beds. It was nice to be able to make tea and coffees, and snacks.

I would book this again as an alternative to a hotel.

We chose to stay here as we found some of the more smaller (i.e. not chain), more centrally located hotels were extortionately priced. This was more reasonable and although it was further out this wasn't a problem as it was an easy walk to the centre (about 15-20 minutes along the canals) - if you'd prefer not to walk there are good tram links. Amstel Corner is a cross between a hotel and apartment: there is no reception but we just called before we arrived to make sure someone was there to meet us; we were met by Maria who was very friendly and even carried my suitcase up the steep stairs for me! There is a kitchen area to make drinks and snacks but the room was tidied and towels replaced every day. We stayed in the Duke's Suite which was lovely - spacious, lovely airy, light room, comfy bed, modern bathroom with flowers which was a nice touch. Only criticism would be that the cold tap didn't work well - either didn't work at all or would gush and it was difficult to turn it off again :-( and the panel for the toilet flush was missing. This was a great base for our stay in Amsterdam and I would consider staying here again if we were to return!

Room Tip: The Duke Suite is lovely but be aware it is at the top of the house up several flights of typically...
