“Small Room But Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Staff very welcoming, efficient, and helpful.
Good location for my visit but a tram ride from the city centre attractions and museums. Not really a problem for me because the trams are frequent and you can get a travel card that covers all the trams and metro at a reasonable price.
My room was small but clean and comfortable and so good value by Amsterdam standards.
The continental breakfast hits the spot, and the free coffee in the dining room during the rest of the day is a nice touch.
The neighbourhood is residential but there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby to choose from as well as the Vondel Park to walk or run off the calories.

Room Tip: Go for a park view if you can get one.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel! The staff was SO amazingly nice and helpful! This is a small cozy hotel, though they could use a little help with the cleaning staff. The beds are amazingly soft, we also had three single beds in our room even though we asked for a double bed…not too big of a deal! It is located in a really cool spot right off the Central Park which made for very pretty morning walks to the main parts of Amsterdam. We walked everywhere! My husband and I don’t mind walking, but if you are not a walker then you might want to consider a tram pass or taxi. The walks to the main parts of town are anywhere from 15-30 minutes! We walked all the way to the canal loop which is a significant walk! There are lots of fun restaurants right around the hotel, as well as grocery stores and shopping! If you are coming in from the Amsterdam Central Train Station I would recommend just taking a taxi to the hotel it was only like 20 euros and you got to see a lot of the town! I would also recommend walking around the city, yeah it is long but you can always walk as far as you can and take the tram back. You take Tram #2 and you can just hop on a buy a 24hr day pass on the actual tram which is SUPER convenient! The only cons I can think of for this hotel would be cleanliness (its not DIRTY, its just not sparkly clean either) and stupid people who come in and out and SLAM doors (the doors are VERY heavy and they slam, which is annoying in the middle of the night.) Other than that, this hotel was great and we REALLY enjoyed Amsterdam! Make sure you visit the flower market, the Bulldog Bars in the Red Light District and the Central Park!

Amsterdam is expensive when it comes to hotels. This hotel is located a bit far away from city center, but in 20 minutes you are in the center with the tram. Had a problem with our room but was quickly solved by the very sympathetic staff at reception. Breakfast is paid, and well served. I liked the hotel, but next time will try to find something with a better location.

GOOD: The staff was very friendly and helpful. Once we arrived, they gave us a map and showed us the location of the main attractions of the city. We decided to stay another day and they helped us to reschedule our train tickets and also printed new tickets. The hotel is very close to the Vondelpark and the station Amstelveenseweg (Zeilstraat) of tram line 2. The heating worked well and the bathroom is comfortable. We stayed in a front apartment, but the street is quiet and we heard no noise.
BAD: The bed is very soft. The room is small and it is difficult to keep two bags open at the same time. However, for that price, it's enough to sleep and to take a shower before exploring the city.

ok for a 1 night business trip, however the room was quite stark. weirdly 3 single beds in a row and quite hard to sleep on! small but very clean bathroom.
unfortunatley the room smelled strongly of stale beer so not very nice.
breakfast room and food ok, but not a place for a weekend break as rooms very basic.

Room Tip: ask for a double bed!

Knew not to expect too much but it was very small room, very basic facilities and breakfast not worth 10 euros. Having said that being close to Vondel Park on a sunny day is just great.You can pick up a tram close by or i feeling brave you can hire a bike from hotel.
