“Excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

I have stayed here thrice in the past 2 weeks. Excellent location - a stone's throw from Amsterdam Centraal station. Rooms are very elegantly furnished and the lounge is first rate. Very much central and a joy to be staying here.

I was staying with my wife in this hotel for 5 nights.
Hotel is very convenient located only 5 minutes walk from central railway station. Most city attractions are walkable from the hotel.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Room was very good, nice furnished and decorated, very clean and comfortable.
Our room (3rd Floor) was very quiet, facing the main street and the side alley.
Breakfast was great but very expensive. (In our case, breakfast was included - Highly recommended).

Downsides:-
- Internet in the room is very expensive.
- The hotel does not have facilities you are expecting to find in a 5 stars hotel:- No Spa, No Jacuzzi, No swimming pool....
- Housekeeping Is a little bit flimsy: -
They kept charging us false bills for consuming items from the minibar (all cancelled at check out).
For a strange reason, they did not put a new soap bar every day, and we have request it many times.
Only one night they offer us a courtesy chocolate bar.

Room Tip: Avoid using the hotel internet service. Book your room with breakfast included.

Great hotel. Friendy staff. Beautiful hotel lobby. The room was spacious, even for four people. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom was also nice and spacious. WIFI was slightly expensive, as was the buffet breakfast - but there was at least a good selection. Wonderfully located. I would definitely go back.

This hotel was really good, and I enjoyed my stay. Perfect position in the center but at the same time in a quite street. Very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, good breakfast and most of all, amazing personell. It is not easy to find this level of kindness in the Netherlands, but here everyone was perfect. Even the maintenance guy in the elevator was kind. I would indeed come back.

The decor was lovely! The Location ideal no matter what you are into or plan to to do. Felt very safe and had a better night sleep than we did at the Krasnapolsky (which was my first choice but was not available for our enire stay). The staff was very cordial and helpful especially with our toddler. I especially loved the breakfast which had an excellent selection of freshly prepared food.

Stayed here during the Amsterdamse Hotelnacht (Amsterdam Hotel night), which offered cheap rooms in lots of Amsterdam hotels.

Location of the hotel is excellent, close to the canals and a stone's throw away from Central Station. For tourists visiting Amsterdam, this is a perfect location to experience the city.

Check-in was smooth, even though the lobby was packed with Hotelnacht-guests. We were given a room on the first floor. It was a bit of a hike through the building, it is huge. Many rooms appeared to have a view of a very uninspiring courtyard, though our room had a view of the street.

The room itself was clean and well-appointed, but small. The ceiling was rather low and there was little space around the bed. To be expected in the center of Amsterdam, though at the rates this hotel usually charges, I would feel a bit dissappointed with the room. Everything was spotless though, and the bed was very comfortable.

The bathroom was pretty small, but very clean. The toiletries were really nice.

The breakfast buffet was excellent, lots of choice in freshly made food.

Overall, at the usual rates of this hotel, I wouldn't stay here again. But then again, there wouldn't be any point in staying in Amsterdam for me anyway.

Room Tip: The view of the interior courtyard looked pretty depressing, might want to ask for a room facing out...
