“Decent tourist hotel”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Nice, quiet location with a few bars and restaurants with easy accessibility to the busier city centre.

Very friendly welcome upon check in however we were advised that we had a lower ground floor room (016) for the first night - but that we could move upstairs the next day (115).

Both rooms were adequate and clean although the single beds were a little too soft for my personal liking.
Room 016 did seem a little cramped, mainly due to the large wardrobe by the bathroom door at the foot of the bed. This was less obvious in the larger 115.

Both bathrooms are a bit dated and the curtain shower sticks to your body as it is so close in to the showroom. The showers themselves did what was asked of them - but nothing more.

Throughout, carpets have loosened and are rippled in many places but the reception area and lounge are relaxed with refreshments and games available.

Did not sample breakfast as I felt 15��� per person to be a bit steep - particularly as there is very good eating to be had close by at half the cost.

Highlights - the nocturnal dog who seemed to think he was a wolf, and the two loose parrots spotted in a nearby tree - bizarre.

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
