Another stunning hotel in a great location. Right on Dam Square. This is one of the more expensive hotels, but worth the money. Always use this hotel when traveling to Amsterdam with my girlfriend.

Just behind the Royal Palace and right next to a great shopping centre Magna Carter.

Great service and very clean.

I have been remiss in not reviewing this hotel sooner, and I am very unhappy that I cannot name names of the staff who went the extra mile - actually, many extra miles! I had them written down and have not been able to find that critical piece of paper. The hotel itself was charming. There just were no negatives. I would go back again in a heartbeat. But . . . here's what I have to say about staff. Arrived in Amsterdam via rail from Zurich/Frankfurt. Traveled in a first class car with reservations. Large luggage was in back of the car and carry on was in the rack above us. Long story short, even though we never left our seats, somehow someone made off with my carry on bag which contained gifts from Murano, Burano and Rome (including receipts), electronics for my Mac, my new I Phone, and most awful, personal jewelry which was very precious to me. When I went crying to the conductor, he just shrugged. I guess this is a common occurrence. I was distraught and crying when I got to the hotel. A wonderful person, after checking us in, immediately filed a L & F report with the railroad. She came up to our room and obtained an itemized list and then refiled a detailed report (which is helping me with my insurance claim). She also found all the electronics I needed to enable me to use my computer. Throughout our visit, people went out of their way, in every way. BTW, the breakfast was absolutely outstanding, and once again, the staff was also. We witnessed two very unpleasant persons who were quite unreasonable with the dining room and kitchen staff; they were never anything but cordial, accommodating, and patient with them which their behavior didn't warrant. Kudos to all!

Room on 5th floor. Stairways are steep and narrow steps by American standards so less agile folks may want to use elevator. Rooms typical small size in Europe but clean. Nothing to view outside windows. Air conditioning really needed during this hot & muggy weather and it worked in our room but not in our companions' room. Its not too far from Central station but we took tram as we were pulling luggage, and tram for Dam Square area stops right in front of hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is available in dining room but is extra charge. Bar on site and this is worth visiting for the story about Heinken beer and the delft tiles which are the motif of this hotel.

Room Tip: If weather is hot, be sure air conditioning is working before accepting room.

We stayed two nights, the staff were very friendly and helpful for local information, nothing too much trouble. Room was clean, bit uninspiring, try and get one that faces street, the one we had had no view)and bathroom OK. Breakfast was good.The location is perfect either to walk from or catch tram just outside front door.

Room Tip: Try and get a street facing room.

I love character properties and this hotel certainly provided it. The location is very convenient to Centraal station and the tram stopped immediately outside the door. the directions provided on the website to the hotel were perfect. The staff were very friendly. Be aware however that the rooms are very small, but we are familiar with the European room sizes, and we found the bed a little uncomfortable

Stayed here in September for three nights , room was like a studio apartment with all the mod cons. We stayed in room 118 which is located at the back of the hotel yards from the fire escape which i was able to nip out for a quick smoke without all the drama of going thru the hotel and climbing stairs etc. Food was great ( try the famous steaks) and staff are more than willing to help with directions ,maps and anything else they can. Trams can be got outside the hotel but to be honest a 5-10 minute walk and your in the middle of all the action. All in all had a great stay here and would not hesitate to go back, in fact im planning a week next time .....
money well spent, Viva le dam :)

Room Tip: room 118......
