“Best Hotel in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

I found the customer service staff very helpful and friendly. I was there for Christmas in 2010 and it was very warm, friendly, including clean room with comfortable beds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to travel to Amsterdam the Netherlands.
Paul.

Room Tip: Excellent location, including friendly staff.

The hotel was very nice and clean .there was 6 of us that all went for 4 Day one room was very large and the other two rooms was very small and cramped. Most of the staff was nice and helpful, we was a little way out from all the main attractions but it was a nice walk to take in all of the lovely buildings and there surroundings. There is a tram stop outside of the hotel if you wish to use it.

Dear Amanda,

thank you for your kind words overhere.
Our rooms have different sizes, it is a true and this is due to the fact that we are located in a ancient residence in the centre of the city.
We hope to see you again in our hotel.

Kind regards,

The best way to describe this hotel is beige. Nondescript, functional, affordable and good enough if you can't get better. The rooms are small but well equipped, adequate if all you need from a hotel is somewhere to sleep. The ensuite is best described as cosy. God knows how someone taller than 6' could use the toilet...Our radiator appeared to operate on chaos theory, at times the room was frosty, at others roasting.

The location is good though, opposite Artis with quick access to the centre and attractions.

I stayed for 2 nights this week, i booked this through superbreak on a 4 night mini cruise to amsterdam and the hotel wasnt the best hotel in amsterdam, but then again when you are going there to explore the city how much time do you really spend in the room?! The room was small but clean and we was given clean towels for the second day, the beds were sooo comfy, we had the best nights sleep, the position of the hotel was perfect, you can get the number 9 tram from central station to Artis and you are a couple of seconds away from the hotel. The staff are friendly and you can store your luggage before check in and after check out. Thanks for a great sleep hampshire lancaster!

Nice good hotel
Free Wifi, in the room (although the webpage said that it was only available in the cafe, but it worked in the rooms too:)). Everything was nice and the room was clean. Would be nice to have smoking rooms!

Dear Edit S,

thank you for your review and your kind words.
It is good to read that you have had a nice stay.

We learn from reviews and it is good to read that you enjoyed the free wifi. We will inform the owner of the webpage to adjust the information about the wifi. Thank you.

I stayed only 1 night, in a standard room at the ground floor. The hotel is quite old, even if it tries to look modern. The room was not perfectly clean (some hair in the handbasin and on the floor) and the moquette on the ground didn't inspire cleanliness. I tried to rent a bike, it was 1 p.m. and I could only use a 24-h rate of 18.50 euro (why don't you rent it for half a day or for hours??It is ridiculous). The only positive thing was the position: 10-15' from Dam square and from Central Station.
P.S. you can spend British Airways miles if you got it (that was the only reason that pushed me to stay there).

My room was a good size for 1 person but my parents room was ridiculously small for 2 people. Also didnt understand when asked for a double room the beds were 2 singles same in the other room we had. Pillows were also lumpy and bumpy not the best as the were not comfortable but the beds were fine. Also being a bit of a clean freak i would have prefered if the bathroom was cleaner, the room was fine though. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful also in a great location as it was quiet and easy enough to get to the centre of the city for attractions.
