Best Western Dam Square Inn

Reviewed August 17, 2012

We booked into this, two rooms at short notice, and were impressed with the rooms and reasonable price for summer and city centre.

Comlaints: The teabags in my room were encased in some sort of armoured foil and I would rather have UHT milk than a powdered creamer.

The continental breakfast was nothing to write home about. It is my custom when travelling to ravage the breakfast buffet and skip lunch - not this time.

It's a pretty basic, no frills hotel near the Dam and easily accessible to the trams and train. No ironing board or fridge, but it was great to walk into our room on the 2nd floor with window open, Sunny, fresh air and nice view of the cathedral. You do hear the chatter of the busy street just below and inhale deeply and life is good:). It was clean, housekeeping singing happily (!) and the most pleasant and helpful staff I have ever come across! Breakfast was just right and like most good free breakfasts, get there early enough for the best selection.

Room Tip: We overlooked the cathedral and front side of the busy street, but loved the whole ambiance. Next d...

We have previously been in 4 different hotels in Amsterdam and this has been by far the best of them all. Great location, very good breakfast with excellent service. Hotel is non-smoking, rooms have flat screen tv´s and they are clean and spacious. Only downside was that there is no refrigerator in the room, also we had some minor problems with the wifi. Would recommend to everybody!

A very good hotel ideally located just off dam square...could do with a sign post as its hidden away off a beautiful back street but if your struggling just ask someone.

Stayed here for one night in june 12 and have no issues at all. Not really much more to say other than if i was returning id definetly be here again

This hotel is extremely well located in the Dam Square. It's a small pedestrian street (it's quite hard to find the hotel) with a few options to eat and drink, and also some coffeeshops, of course.

As for the room, its size is suitable for a couple with the necessary comfort and also very clean. The bathroom is also good. The heater works perfectly in both rooms. The bed and shower are good, not excellent. The noise from the street isn't a problem at all as it decreases as the night comes (we have stayed in the first floor facing the street).

The breakfast is very good with lots of options. The staff is friendly and helpful.

As for location, it's within walking distance from Amsterdam's main attractions and easy access to the trams (3 minutes walking to the tram stop at Dam Square), so you can get to the "Heineken Experience" in less than 10 minutes. Also we found the location very safe at any time (you have to get used to stoned people walking around anywhere in Amsterdam).

If you get to Amsterdam by the train station you can get to the hotel walking (around 10 - 15 minutes), but if you have heavy bags, think twice as the pavement of the streets is not very friendly to the little wheels.

Considering everything this is a very good option to stay in Amsterdam.

Went to Amsterdam for 4 days and the hotel was very decent, clean, comfortable, safe, staff very helpful but the only down fall was that you had to walk up a side street in the dark to get back to the hotel. the room didnt had a skylight which is a pity as we would have like a nicer view. the breakfast was very good and served everything from cold meat to chocolate sprinkles for your toast. pleasent stay overall

Stayed in a triple room with a kingsize bed and a murphy bed. Hotel was very clean, staff super helpful, breakfast convenient and good. Bathroom was small but acceptable. Location was within walking distance of historical sites. Had a super visit in Amsterdam. Would recommend this property.
