“good but bad :p”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

it was hard to find it as there is no sign and no reception. We arrived early morning so we had to wait till 12pm coz that's when our code was activated. You have to go up the tiny stairs with you luggage :s Room was very nice and spacious, bathroom was nice and clean, however we think there was bed bugs :s Location is not bad, quit area.

First, the address listed on Tripadvisor is wrong. The house number is 3 and not 1. The reason why it is important to mention is because you can't see from the outside that this is a hotel. It looks like a standard house door. There's NO reference at all of AMS suites at the entry. I wonder if this place is registered as a hotel. There is no reception whatsoever, there is just a keylock at the door. In order tohve the code to get in, you need to callthe number that booking.com provided us with. Ok, once tjis was sorted out, we entered and went to our 3F room. This was located on the third floor and there are only very, very steep stairs....this looks like a students house and not like a hotel. I had difficulties going up these small stairs with all my luggage
The room opened with same code as for the entrance door. The positive surprise was that the room is VERY spacious, especially to Amsterdam standards. There were vouchers in the room for breakfast / brunch at a nearby bakery (Vlaamsche huis - very neat place).
The bed was ok. Impossible to figure out how the heating system could be lowered...I had to open the windows to lower temperature.
The location is very good, nearby shops and restaurants

Nice room, excellent bed & bathroom, but...water hasn't got enough pressure so showering took very long...
Very good situated for my visit at ADE, it was only 3 minutes away from the conference so ideal.

Being a native from Amsterdam now living in Switzerland, I felt right at home ascending the steep and narrow stairs. The location is very central in the Jordaan allowing for going everywhere by foot. The room with its minimalistic interior design is very spacious (3B), easily exceeding that of a regular hotel room. Very pleasant to sleep with the possibility of opening the windows and enjoy the Amsterdam background noise and the carillon of the Westerkerk chiming its illustrious tunes. Apart from the mediocre water pressure, the bathroom exceeded expectation with both a large bathtub and large shower cell. The only personal tough to be received is the door opening by an emailed pin for the front door and and room door, as there is no interfacing with any personnel. A minor caviat is the notion that there is no way to store luggage, easily resolved by dropping it that the Central Station locker section that is only a 10 minutes. The free wifi is of high speed quality and very stable.

Okay so upon opening the front door our hearts did sink, we had just come from a London Studio that presented the same and was very small inside. We struggled up to open to an amazing space. The studio was very open and spacious with a chic interiors. French doors opened to the charming little street with canal view. Location was perfect close to everything which made getting around super easy. Very clean and the studio was serviced every day. Only drawback really was the stairs which even though we were on the top floor.... they became a pleasure to tread as we knew what awaits at the top. With the size of the space it was a shame it didn't afford more utilities such as cutlery, microwave etc. And if we had to be super critical the water pressure lacked some gusto but as a perfect compliment to a beautiful city Ams was absolutely perfect. We loved Amsterdam and can't wait to return. Without question we would stay here again. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

My wife and I stayed in the AMS Suites over the first weekend of August. The accommodation is located in the Jordaan district which has a really relaxed and bohemian feel about it, lots of small cafes, bars and restraunts in which to sit and just watch the world go by. Having said that the accommodation is also just a leisurely stroll from everything else Amsterdam has to offer. We stayed in a room on the third floor at the front of the property which was a really good size and overall absolutely superb. The decor is really modern with a large double bed, flat screen TV, coffee making facilities, fridge and safe. The bathroom was also really well appointed with a lovely wet room shower area. We were really pleased that we had chosen this accommodation, it really made us feel that we were experiencing the real Amsterdam.
