“A home away from home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

After a long tiring Trans Atlantic flight, this hotel was a great option. We were kindly offered an early check-in. The room was clean and tidy with a very cosy feel. It's also Eco-friendly and a small space but the hotel has made good use of the size. We had tea and coffee in the room, which was on the 4th floor with a city view. The linens are soft and comfortable and the comforter/blanket keeps you warm and toasty on a cold winter night! Soon after we entered the room, reception and housekeeping both called in to find out if we liked our room. I found that to be a very thoughtful gesture!

The staff are all exceptionally friendly and helpful. They booked our tickets to the Van Gogh Museum, sold tickets for the transit system and suggested that a 72 hour pass was our best option and they were absolutely right. When I was trying to figure out our tram stop, Helen at the front desk came around from the desk & stepped outside with us in the cold and pointed out to the tram stop and took the time to explain the direction and that it was important to check out at the destination, which was very helpful. They also made dinner reservations for us at Kantjil & De Tijger and Haejse Claes during our stay.

I would definitely recommend this hotel. It offers clean and comfortable rooms, friendly service and excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We had a room on the higher floor facing the city/tram line and it was great

I really enjoyed my stay at the hotel and I would definitely recommend it for people wishing to stay in Amsterdam for a long weekend. The location is perfect and is close to everything (Cafes/Restaurants/Museums/Shops/Markets). The price is also really good and affordable. The greatest part of my stay was the staff and their friendliness and hospitality.

The beds and rooms were also very clean and comfortable.

It has been over a year since my stay, but it was a nice place what I did like is how the staff did detail cleaning in the hallways everyday. Yes the bathroom has a glass stained door and if you are modest, you will not like it, I was travelling alone so I did not care. I stayed at this hotel after my European bus tour had just finished ata The Lakeland Hotel in Monnickendam , so it was a great step up from the Lakeland Hotel in Monnickendam.

Thanks so much for sharing your opinion! In case you fly back in from Canada with a friend; we will accommodate you in a room with stone walls instead of frosted glass.

Warmest regards, Lotte

Great Location very close to the station and some of the main areas of Amsterdam, room was clean and the bed comfy but the room itself was very small (very very small), the light switches behind the bed are in a very silly place and you end up turning them on in the middle of the night, the bathroom though clean and ok sized is like a goldfish bowl and is up close and personal to who ever you may be sharing with, Bed was comfy and snug and the staff were very nice.
Overall a good stay and was a good price but without any thrills

stayed here back in september for two nights during my first trip to amsterdam with my mum and sister. easy to find from the train station and first impressions great. staff very helpful and went out of their way to help us, room immacculate, beds were like sitting on a cloud they were that soft (unfortunately gave me a bad back as they were that soft, and mattresses kept slipping off the side of the bed!), room very modern with everything you could need bar a fridge, but not an issue for us. only odd thing was the glass walls/windows around the bathroom? dont think my family appreciated seeing me go to the toilet and showering! in perfect position for sight seeing, occasionally some noise from main road outside but barely noticeable, especially at night. free wifi, mini shop type facilities at reception with tea, coffe, soft drinks, sandwiches, etc. quite expensive but so is the rest of amsterdam! didnt go for breakfast as thought it was quite expensive and could go out cheaper. overall a brilliant base for sight seeing with excellent service. will definitely return.

Dear AmyBo0x0,

Thanks for this 5 star review! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay in Amsterdam. Whenever you decide on coming back; we are working on a permanent solution for the slipping mattresses. Also; instead of rooms with frosted glass we have rooms with "old fashioned" stone walls; so just make sure to request this and we will try our utmost to accommodate your request!

Warm regards, Lotte

I travelled to Amsterdam with 2 friends late November 2013 and stayed at the WestCord City Centre Hotel. Upon arrival the staff were friendly and allowed us access to our room despite arriving 2 hours early.

We booked a triple room with 3 single beds, The room was very clean with a modern decor. Very comfy beds, Free Wifi in the room.

Red Light District, Town Centre and Train station are all within a short walk (5-10mins) from the hotel.
