“A good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

A very helpful and friendly staff. They helped us find a room that we could check into immediately as we had arrived hours before normal check-in time. We upgraded to a room over looking the canal, which had a beautiful view. The one caveat is that there was no air conditioning but this is a building built in the 1400's so allowances must be made. We were blessed with a concert on the canal in the evening which only added to the enjoyment. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is in a fab location, but is in need of some updating. Wifi was fine for emails/face booking and bed was super comfy. Staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and spacious. Rooms were very warm at night and we ended up covered in mozzie bites the nights we slept with the window open, so defo worth taking some insect repellent!

Got there early not expecting to get into our room until later but the very friendly and helpful staff had us sorted within 5 minutes. A pleasant room, clean, spacious with everything we needed. Breakfast was good and staff very attentive. Really pleased we chose it. Would go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the canal

Hotel isn't bad.
Bit dated and could do with renovation. Wee nicks and issues here and there such as a slightly leaking bathroom tap, only one slow lift to serve 5 floors. Room furniture dated and fashioned but yet functional. Would get the same bed comfort from holiday inn express.
Plus points - staff like Rutger at front desk were fantastic. Can't remember all their names but very friendly and helpful. Book the canal tour with wine and cheese, absolute must and can be booked from lobby. They also pick you up direct from the quay at the rear of the hotel on river amstel. The hotel is very close to rembrandtplein which is the nearest place for eating out. The downside to this being that it can be noisy if you're looking a relaxing night as its so warm windows are opened meaning you can hear everything. You also hear the bin lorries collecting all the bottles at 8am. It's also 20minute walk to most attractions which is great considering its a nice city to walk around. Breakfast is nice but expensive considering you can head to mcdonalds 5minutes away and get a lovely croissant and coffee for like 3euro.
In short a decent hotel and I would stay again. Cant fault the staff or location. Its decent value but biggest drawback would be it is in dire need of upgrades to the rooms and facilities. Ps. I've seen a lot of people slating the wifi. I never had an issue with it and we were on 4th floor. Bit of modernisation and it would have been perfect.

As the other reviews state, the rooms are looking a bit tired. However the building is beautiful - tourists are frequently stopping to take photographs of the ornate facade. Location-wise it couldn't be better. It overlooks canals, bridges and the River Amstel, and is walking distance from all the major sites of Amsterdam, and Central Station. Don't miss De Jaren bar/cafe next door, it is a great place for breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook the canals.

The Hotel is listed as a 4-star hotel - but it is not. It for sure was a 4-star hotel 20 years ago. But today it looks rather shabby, it is in urgent need of renovation. The rooms are quite spacy, but the windows are unsealed so it gets really cold in side the room and it is rather noisy as well. The matrazes are worn and it is not nice to sleep in those beds.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

Great location and friendly reception staff.
10-15 mins walk from Central Station. Trams nearby.
Loved the view from our room overlooking the canal.
Can be noisy canal side when events being held, but that didn't bother us.
Love the beauty of the building, but some rooms could do with updating.
Breakfast was ok but not a huge choice. Free wifi is a good bonus.
Good location to stay for Amsterdam Pride events. No A/C in room.
Overall, a good place to stay with nice reception staff.

Room Tip: Book a room with a canal view but could be noisy during street events.
