“Ok for a short stay. ”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

I found the room pretty basic. It could do with a hand soap dispenser for the sink!
The bed was made daily, but the room wasn't cleaned very well. Our dirty coffee cups weren't replaced.

The breakfast was very expensive, if you haven't included this in your stay, costing €15 each for a fairly basic selection I thought this was very steep.
We stayed on the 4th floor next door to a store cupboard which was slammed closed about 10 times throughout our 2nd night which went on til about 5am or so, meaning I hardly slept.
We had to give a €50 deposit when we arrived which was inconvenient but i suppose its understandable.

Minus these issues, the hotel is in a fab location very close to the tram into town, a short walk to some lovely local pubs and the amazing Artis zoo. Be ready for a €2.10 tax charge when checking out

Not great. On arrival we were told room was ready, only to find out it hadn't been serviced from the previous occupants. They didn't service the room at all the following day, despite us being out of the room at 7am. Main light didn't work and it took two days of requesting before we were finally given the bulb to change it ourselves! On the plus side the room was clean (when they actually serviced it), and the staff were polite, but useless.

The room was small but functional, it was clean and the bed was comfortable.
General appearance is middle of the road, I cannot be too critical as it was much better than the hotel my colleagues were unfortunate to be placed in.

Convenient for the city centre or the more upmarket areas. The number 9 or 14 tram virtually dropped you off at the doorstep which was a bonus after all the walking.

Breakfast was ok....much the same as most hotels across Europe

Not the best....but far from the worst hotel.....at least the local area is quiet and safe.

Cheers

Alan

I have booked a room for me and my friends for one night. We were four people and I have to say that the room was a bit small and the bathroom very simple. The luggage storage room had no cctv in it and you just had to ask the clerk to open it remotely which means anybody in the hotel can search in your luggage and steal anything you may have. Also I would have apreciated to have a minibar in the room, instead we just had a kettle and some tea. WiFi was free in the lobby but was not free in the rooms. To finish I would just say that the room was expensive. I would not recommend that hotel.

Very nice and comfortable rooms. The bed was very nice and large enough for me.

The only drawback is that it didn't clarify the internet is available at the rooms only with charge. It only mention "internet in the room" so I thought this would be free of charge. And the cost of 12.5euro/day for internet is too expensive for this room.

The hotel is ok as a base to explore ,its in a nice mainly residential area, about 20 minutes walk or a short tram ride into the city centre. The room was tiny and airless for two and the loo and shower were in what seemed to be a cupboard. Two nights was fine, any longer and cabin fever might have set in! The staff were polite and helpful, but the hotel had the ambiance of a polystyrene ceiling tile.
But it was a great price, it was quiet and we had a fab time in Amsterdam. Would return to the city, but would try a different hotel but you pays your price........

The hotel was nothing special. Luckily we got a good deal (42 euros) and only had one night here. Location was good - easy to get around with tram lines 9 and 14 and nice cafes/delis close by. Trams ran frequently. Beds were comfortable. Cons: carpets were gross and requires replacing. Bathrooms were small and need updating. Initially the management put us in a basement suite but it was moldy and dusty - but after we complained, they moved us to a higher floor. Overall - our stay was okay but i don't think we would stay here again in the future.
