“park life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

The room was fairly small for two people with luggage but was clean and well maintained. There was a nice view towards the park from our 4th level window. Shower and bathroom also quiet ok. The price we paid was competitive with other cheaper places for a Friday and sat night. Not so close to the centrum but at the same time not so far away if you are taking the number 2 tram which leaves 1 block from the hotel. Also the 197 bus is only a 500 metre walk and provides a 4 euro direct trip to the airport. Don't bother taking a taxi or train to the airport..the bus is quicker.

We had an early checkout (6am) and it was very nice that the night receptionist went to the effort of preparing all breakfast early just for us so that we could eat before we left. This was very much appreciated! Will happily return when we visit Amsterdam again

This hotel is very cosy and In quiet residential area. From here it's easy to access the city by tram and bus which are. Rey frequent, or taxi if you wish. It's about 15mins from the airport by taxi. The rooms are very clean and not as spacious as I would have liked but it was still very comfortable. Staff at the desk were so friendly and always happy to help. There wasn't much of a selection at breakfast which was a little disappointing but there are plenty of places to eat from in the city. Overall I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it too.

Stayed here in March with 2 friends.The rooms were small but cosy.We had 3 single beds but it was all put together so it was like sleeping in one big bed!Very comfy too.Our room had a small balcony overlooking nice houses and a small lake.Its right next to Vondelpark so it was really good.If you don't mind walking,just walk your way out of Vondelpark and you're at the city centre where all the shop,museums,and restaurants are.

Overall,this was a pretty good stay.

ps:tiny tiny lift and dull breakfast :(

We spent 8 nights in a room ,no 205, overlooking Vondel Park. It has a lovely view from the small balcony area. Breakfast was good and it serves till 11 am . However most guests seemed to eat ealier. Vondel Park is big and the nearest park entrance is about 100 metres. The tram service is frequent and the stop for the hotel is nearby. The toilet (wc) and shower share the same floor. It is a "wet" room; a modern trend I noticed in some Irish hotels as well. The slant or incline does not guide the water from the shower into the plug-hole and you have to use the rubber blade that is provided to clear the floor. After that you put down a bathtowel and mop up the water the blade missed. If the shower area was sunk 2 to 3 cms. (an inch) there would not be a problem.
It is a good hotel and I would gladly stay there again. We did not use the Wi-Fi nor the air conditioning. A kettle, tea ,milk and coffee are provided. The staff were helpful and well informed. They answered all our questions and arranged our taxi to the Airport. The fare was 37 euros for the 2 of us, Oct 2013.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking out on the Park

Small room and bathroom, but very clean with a comfortable bed. Very pleasant location in a quiet upmarket residential district. Frequent tram service into town just a few minutes away - journey time about 15 minutes. Supermarket and restaurants neraby. Excellent alternative to the more expensive centally located downtown hotels. Hand luggage only!

Yes, the hotel and rooms are small. The location is so charming that it makes up for almost everything else. Seriously, I love the setting of this hotel. They were even filming a movie down the street from the hotel and I can see why. It's nice to come back here and rest after running around all day around the canals. Prices are a bit high and still worth it.

The hotel is in a good location near restaurants and public transport connections. But the room was much too small. You couldn't fit a table under the minute desk. The only way to do any work was to pull the bed forward and perch on some pillows. The bathroom was a sort of wetroom so water flooded all over the floor and wouldn't drain away. The staff came and mopped it up when I was out. If you just need a bed for the night it would be OK but you can't work here.
