“Decent hotel but not worth it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed there for a weekend in the beginning of December 2012. The staff at reception said specifically that breakfast started from 6.30 am every day of the week, but when we went to breakfast on Saturday, it did not start until 7. I had to leave for work by 7 so could not get breakfast on that day.
We did not have enough toilet papers and items for shower, and we have to ask for new items every time. And our room was not properly cleaned.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights for our first visit to amsterdam. The hotel is in a perfect location just steps away from dam square, kalvestraat, amsterdam central station and very close to the red light district as well. The staff was also very helpful with tips on places to visit, directions etc etc. Only grouse the room was small but if u are gonna be out all day like us it doesnt matter. The perfect location more than makes up for other faults.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our first short break to Amsterdam. The hotel was very easy to find and walk to from Central Station, and located perfectly for sightseeing. Our room was clean, comfortable and ideal for our needs. We would highly recommend the hotel and certainly stay here if we return to Amsterdam.

This hotel is amazing and I would definitely return to this hotel when coming back to Amsterdam! The staff are all really friendly and helpful - they give you so much information about the best way to travel to places and the best places to go to suit your tastes! Always cheery as well!

The room was absolutely amazing! We were lucky upon arrival to be given room 120 which was the biggest in the hotel and just perfect. We had a massive jacuzzi bath as well as a separate living and sleeping area. When we first entered, we were gob smacked as we didn't even expect it to be half that size - we went with the mentality that we would get a basic room just for sleeping however it was more like a spa resort room! The best was so comfy! Had the best few nights sleep ever! It was like sleeping on a cloud!

Situated right in the centre as well! Perfect location. R square and L square (the main ones) are a £2.90 tram ride away or a 10 min walk. We walked there easily in the day but got the tram at night due to me walking in heels! It is so close to everything.

Would recommend eating at the Irish bar - it is amazing! It's on R square. We had the beef sandwich specialty and it was amazing! Got to have New York pizza when you're there too! Any meal we bought was worth the money as even though in the capital - the meals were huge so defo worth the price!

Grasshopper was a fave coffee shop to sit outside (or in) and just chill. The spag bol there was gorgeous!

Nightlife is great! L square and R square just as good as each other! L square is more close and friendly and smaller bars whereas R square focuses more on the clubs but still has crazy little bars which we loved! Smoky's is good to go as very busy and has lots of drinks deals on.

However, back to the hotel - they let you leave your luggage safely in a room before and after check in. They will do anything to help. They give you a card for the ironing room and have adapter plugs you can borrow. The hotel itself is very pretty and looks amazing inside and out. Couldn't have been happier with our stay here. The room just topped it off as that was just incredible! It always helps when a hotel has such friendly staff as here, as well.

Thank you for an amazing stay!! Loved it and will defo return!

We went there for 6 days and we were upgraded to the suite. The suite is amazing. You wake up with a view to dam square. Hotel staff is really friendly. The bar is special since it is the original Heineken brewery and the bartender was so nice he even went with us to the Escape club on his way home to show us the city!!!.
Restaurant serves a mean steak as written by several others. To conclude, this hotel is really special.

Room Tip: Dont miss out on the suite...
