“5-10min walking to cuty center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Good for a short trip in amsterdam.. Room´s size is enough, don ´t be too "fat" or big for toilets, don ´t pay more than 110euros.. Service ok, people polite, no big noise, cleaned every day. Breakfast expensive, but 20 meters further very nice breakfast café.

Well located very close to the zoo, very clean in general and the only down side was the size of the bathroom which made it hard to use. Over all not bad at all for a mid city stay for one night - though we were woken up by a strange bird call from the zoo in the morning!

Dear a2c7,

thank you for your nice words.
The hotel is located opposite the Zoo, monkeys and exotic birds can sometimes be heard but it has it's charm. Where can you wake up in a city with these sounds.
Again thank you and we hope to see you again.

Kind regards,
Hans

Great location, in a very green and quiet area of Amsterdam, extremely close to the city center but still away from all the craziness that is Amsterdam at night. Rooms are a bit on the small side, and walls are a bit thin (this seems to be a common feature in much of the city), but otherwise everything was clean, neat and well appointed.

The beds were good, mattresses a bit on the hard side for my own personal taste - but otherwise excellent. The breakfast buffet was really good, I very much appreciated the fact that both full/continental/scandinavian-style breakfasts could be had. A special note on the chocolate spread, as well as the variety of bread available (3 types of toast, 3 types of rolls, pain au chocolat and croissants).

Overall, I warmly recommend this hotel - especially given the rate.

Nothing stood out about this hotel. The staff was of average friendliness, the room was about what you would expect for Europe, and the bathroom was pretty small.

It is located in a quiet neighborhood, which we enjoyed.

I would probably look elsewhere to stay next time as nothing would call me back to this hotel.

Stayed here while on football tour. Eleven of us, accommodated in two quad rooms and a triple (and everyone getting their own room key, which was handy). Clean and comfortable rooms, quiet location near to the zoo, plenty of cafes in walking distance. Free Internet and a vending machine in the lobby; staff helpful in booking cabs, etc.

The team agreed that we'd happily stay at the same hotel again.

Leaving aside the fact the hotel is located oposit to the Amsterder Zoo and next to an retirement home it is in a walking distance to the center of Amsterdam (5-10 min).
Hopfuly not all the rooms as small as the one I had.
The bathroom wasn't realy a bathroom, considering that it would be possible to prush your teeth, taking a shore and sitting on the loo at the same time.
Apart from that there migth be a correlation to the retirement home as the hotel was most porobably build in the 30th.
Everything else was satisfying, it was clean, the breakfast was good and the stuff is competent and friendly.

Room Tip: Next time I will ask for a room, wich does not face the main road infront the hotel.
