“So central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Perfect for being right in the heart of the shopping district and right on the canals! Lovely average sized rooms slightly older but clean and comfortable. We had a back room with no view as we were with a baby else the trams would be too noisy out the front. Small lift for all our luggage.
Good wifi in rooms.

Stayed February 2014

This is my second time at this hotel and once again a great stay. Check in a breeze, staff very pleasant and helpful. I was fortunate enough to be upgraded again to a corner room which is very spacious and clean. It's also very quiet considering it's on quite a busy junction (well, busy for Amsterdam )
Would definitely recommend

Wonderful location, stayed before, large rooms, canal views. Fab deli/ shop on the corner - a little eclectic and a boutique feel. Very welcoming staff and room service very good, if menu slightly limited.

The positives: This hotel is right in the middle of it all, close to everything. It might be one of the best locations you could ask for in Amsterdam. Some of the rooms here are incredibly huge with canal views. Theres a metro stop right in front.

The negatives: The hotel is badly in need of a makeover or renovation. It's oldschool. Some of the rooms are not even accessable by elevator and you need to carry a bag up steps. In many of the rooms you can hear the metro bell pretty loud starting at 6am to 12am.

If you are looking for a good deal in a good location, this place is fine. But not if you want a 4 or 5 star that feels modern and polished.

Room Tip: The suites are huge, but get a high floor or you will hear the metro bell all day.

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful stay in this warm, welcoming hotel. we were in Amsterdam for only a few days, not long enough to thoroughly enjoy our eerie on the top floor. Our room was delightfully appointed, with two windows, giving us great views of the city from two aspects. A tiny balcony enabled us to get good photos of the rooftops. Breakfast was served in the basement restaurant and again was served with care and warmth. The staff were always courteous and helpful, assisting us in finding restaurants within easy walking distance and helping us to book cruises etc. We could easily walk to the museums and art galleries using one of their umbrellas to ward off the rain!
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, and on my next visit to Amsterdam I have every intention of staying there again! hoping to get the same room and meet the same, friendly staff.

Room Tip: Go high! Views are amazing.

Very pleasant welcome, room presentable and clean with two easy chairs, table, desk and bedside cabinets, tea/coffee facilities, shower over bath, television, hairdryer and all toiletries provided.

Good guidance from staff what to see and do, whatever we asked for we were advised about.

A very pleasant stay and would definitely stay here again if we return to Amsterdam.

Use the bus 197 from Amsterdam Airport, stops 400 metres from the hotel, a short walk to the Hotel and only cost 4 Euros each as opposed to getting a taxi which would cost 45 Euros.

The Hotel is within easy reach/walking distance of all sight seeing venues in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: We chose a room with a view over the canal, very picturesque.
