Stayed 15th March 2 days. Clean hotel. Helpful staff. Bar with atmosphere and good service. Didn't eat at hotel as many cafes, restaurants and bars close by. Well positioned for walking, boat trips and bike hire---practice first!! Would return.

This hotel is in our view an excellent place to stay in Amsterdam, if you can get a good deal on the room rate. We had a high room at the front overlooking the square and it was spacious and clean. Seperate sitting area and desk were nice as well.

Reception very helpful. Bar service a little slow and quite expensive.

We would stay again

I have stayed at this hotel in Amsterdam many times and have always found it to be excellent.Alas I have to agree with recent comments made by other guests that it is not a good choice until the renovations of this listed building are complete

The hotel had no nice views as they were in the process of refurbishing and unfortunately this was not mentioned when I booked the hotel. As the hotel is very old, everyday early morning we were woken up by someone sleeping in the room above us as it was creaking badly for minimum 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour at night which drove us mad. Apart from that the service was not bad, they were hospitable and the concierge was very knowledgable. I would not go back there again though!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your visit and your feedback. The building is indeed more than110 years old. That is why currently renovation and improvement works are being carried out. We hope that you will visit us again to check up on the refurbishment.

Arriving at the hotel after making a non changeable reservation I found the hotel totally wrapped in scaffolding. Nothing was mentioned on their site. The receptionist confirmed it was the managements choice not to communicate on this. The work starts at 8.
The interior of this hotel is more of the ibis 2.3 star kind but functional. Pictures shown are of the restaurant, separated from the hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your visit and your feedback. We are sorry that communication seems to have fallen short.

At any give time 60% of the building has scaffolding erected. This changes constantly. The restaurant is 100% integrated and owned by the hotel. We hope that all other refurbishments will improve your impression of the public areas.

We had a team of 7 staying here and outside refurbishment going on, so many rooms have no view but tarpulin outside and workmen starting at 8am. We didn't know and our leader was annoyed that during booking were not made aware as busy business people on exhibition need good nights sleep. So all were moved to other rooms, some small, rooms at front noisy but nice view of the square. I had emailed ahead and asked for high floor, quiet side and was on top floor looking in, so no view except some rooftops but good size and very quiet. Breakfast was in a beautiful old restaurant and good self service, but tea was a pot of hot water and you put a tea bag in yourself. An expensive hotel but guess during exhibitions all expensive, getting a Taxi in morning was difficult. Even though I booked night before for a 8.30 taxi for 6 to go to exhibition none arrived fro 20 minutes so we were late and this happened two days, seems Concierge either need to use a new taxi firm or sort their act out, excuse was always its busy and an exhibition on, but Amsterdam always has exhibitions. Bus right outside goes direct to airport in 45 mins.

Room Tip: Find out if outside work still going on and if it is ask for a room away from the works.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your visit and your remarks.

The planning is that the refurbishment on the outside is finished in May.

We hope that by reallocating your group we could minimise the inconvenience. We are sorry to hear that taxis were difficult to get. We are using Amsterdams biggest taxi company and, unfortunately, during busy conventions waiting times are a bit longer.

Best regards,
