“Not quite business standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Typical business hotel (I was there for a conference), except no free wifi in the rooms (only in reception area). Poor experience at breakfast - rather than simply note our room numbers, the "welcomer" insisted on checking first whether our breakfast was included, and refused to let us sit until he had. It wasn't, but we were quite happy to pay separately. On discovering it wasn't included, he STILL wouldn't let us sit, but insisted he had to "go upstairs to check with management". We lost patience and left. Hotel breakfasts at expensive enough without having to wait interminably for their bureaucracy.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms starting with 9. They're not on the 9th floor, they're in a different building...

Very clean and nice hotel in a perfect location in the centre of Amsterdam. Very good breakfast buffet, and very nice rooms.

Do have to say that to my opinion the rates for internet/other stuff are way too high though, that's why they wouldnt get 5 stars.

While this hotel is close to the train station, it is far enough away to be right on one of the most picturesque canals in the city. Add to that well above average rooms and bathrooms and this place will be a go to for us in Amsterdam going forward!

I was a bit concerned at first about how close to the train station this place was, but found that it was just convenient, not problematic. The rooms were nice, breakfast was sumptuous, if expensive, but we were there on a Sunday, so this may have been more of a brunch.

If you are coming in from the airport this is very convenient, since the walk form the Centraal station is really only 10 minutes.

Staff was helpful and nice (this is Holland after all, it seems everyone around here is helpful and nice :)), especially our Concierge.

After my not so pleasant say in the hotel the previous night I came to this hotel. First impression, very beautiful and well kept and in a good location. Downside--- I was charged 50 Euro for parking (with hotel parking lot) and 19.95 Euro for internet in the room (basic was 7.95 which allowed you to barely exist in the world of internet).

Being that the hotel was pricey I would never have expected having to pay for parking and basic internet--oh breakfast was included and it was a good spread.

Just 2 blocks from Centraal Station. Within walking distance to most popular attractions in Amsterdam. One of the best hotel breakfast buffets we've had in europe. Comfortable, Clean. Overheard another customer saying he travels to Amsterdam at least 6 times a year and this is his hotel choice, couldn't agree more. A denitively come back hotel.

Room Tip: Walking from Ceentral station to the hotel is closer than it looks on google maps, no trouble whatso...
