“Very Good Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights this week and was happy with the room. good size and warm. Has really fast wifi internet which was perfect for uploading photos to facebook etc and planning our day trips. The location was perfect. with the awesome zoo right across the road. and close to the really good coffeeshop "het Balloonje". Catch tram 9 the get to the dam square or just walk like we did. takes 15mins at most. would stay again.

Room Tip: we had 2 single beds pushed together instead of a double!

Recently had a 4 night stay. It was a bargain for 30 per person per night and exactly what we needed. The staff were all lovely and spoke great English as most people did in Amsterdam.
The rooms were pretty big compared to what previous reviews on trip advisor said. More than enough space. The bed were really comfortable and the rooms nicely decorated.
About a 20 minute max. walk from the hotel to the centre and in a lovely area much quieter than the centre.
Lovely restaurants near by that weren't expensive.
Tram stop practically right outside the hotel.

First the bad stuff, rooms are small, and the breakfast is not great.

However, staff are helpful, the bed is comfy, its clean and there is free wifi.

I would not want to stay here for a long time however for a one or two night stay it is fine. There is a tram right outside for getting in and out the city, and if you decide to walk it its only 15 mins.

We were welcomed by a really nice receptionist who was very well acquainted with the city. However, the other staff members did not know as much, which caused us to waste some time; nothing crucial though. Other than that, the place was well equipped, the beds were comfortable, breakfast pretty complete. It is well located; it is possible to walk downtown from there, but only if you like walking. Nice area, too.

Room Tip: I'd recommend you ask for a room on the upper floors where noisy teens cannot bother you :) Than...

My girlfriend and I recently had a 3 night stay.
All of the staff we very polite and polite.
The room was very nice and was more than big enough. The en suite bathroom was small, but had everything you need and the shower was nice.
It is easy to tram (trams approximately every 10 minutes) to Central Station or Dam square, however we found the 15 minute walk very nice.
The Hotel is also very near the zoo and the Verzetsmuseum (Dutch Resistance Museum) - which I would highly recommend.
I can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't have it any of our mornings - it is €15 per person.
I can't comment on the value of the hotel as my partner paid for it :-).

Ok the bathrooms are small but are clean with effecient shower. Comfortable bed and ample tea and coffee making facility - what more do you want ? Very friendly and helpfull staff. A short walk or even shorter tram ride into the center of town. A good range of excellent resaurants and bars within a two minute walk from the hotel. Booked through Last Minute and FlyBEand got a superb rate. Overall cannot fault the hotel or service. Will happily return another time.

Room Tip: Ask on arrival if you can have the biggest room possible

Just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. Booked it via last minute.com and got a fantastic deal, after reading some of the reviews i was a bit sceptical about what the hotel would be like. STAFF:We were greeted by very freindly staff the whole way throughout our stay.
ROOM: Our room was very big, double bed and sofa and enough room for clothes etc (although i think we may have had a slightly bigger than average room by luck!). The showers were brilliant and had tea/coffee facilities as well as a fridge which was great as we were making our own lunch etc to save some money! The double bed was 2 singles pushed together but wasnt a problem at all!
LOCATION: Personally i dont believe it is necesary to get a tram card although this was the advice by many. The walk to dam square is a 15 minute slow walk, and the whole walk is past interesting shops, resteraunts, museums, coffee shops so i feel you miss out on seeing alot of amsterdam by getting the tram, as it really is a lovely little walk (even in the pouring rain as we experienced it!) We used the tram just twice when we had to get to central station with all our bags.

Cant comment on the breakfast as we didnt eat as it was 15 euros each.

One place i would really recommend doing (i personally enjoyed it even more than Anne franks house and van gogh museum) was the resistance museum, right opposite the zoo and only a 3 min walk from hotel. 8 euros per person and absolutely fantastic. Would also massively recommend the free walking tours which meet at dam square at 11am, an amazing 3 hour tour (cant imagine its any less good than a paid tour which can test 25 euros).

We also did Van Gogh Museum and Anne frank which were both fantastic.

Would defiantly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 316 (end of the corridor) which was massive
