“Difficult to find but comfortable with lovely helpful staff”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Advertising this as being Dam Square us a trifle misleading. It's close but tucked down a tiny side street so get a detailed map to find it.
The comfortable hotel is in a good location has good sized rooms with a quirky bathroom which you might have to negotiate sideways (room 332). What made my stay was the receptionist whose helpfulness went beyond the expected. The hotel provides umbrellas for wet days :)

Room Tip: Get a map and don't trust the people of Amsterdam to know where Gravenstraat is

we stayed for a week in this hotel. The location of the hotel is great, very close to Dam square (less than a minute walk) but still away from the madness of the Dam (just off the square - very quite). The staff is very helpful and the rooms were clean although not large but the bathroom was good sized and spacious, the down side is that the shower was fixed and was a bit tricky when trying not to get my hair wet. The room did not have any refrigerator, but since we went in November, we didn't really need it! room is also equipped by a safe. Towels were changed daily even when we left our room late in the day. Good breakfast (continental) and they have a luggage storage room. Very close to all the sites didn't have to catch any taxis or trams at all which is very good. I really don't have anything bad to say about this hotel. I recommend it to everyone A++.

We stayed for one night in Amsterdam and had a big to do list. Close distance to all the sights of Amsterdam and 2 min walk to the square. Great room, lovely king bed and spacious bathroom. Good breakfast and they were happy to store our bags. We walked from the train station, about 15 minutes walk.

I stayed at this hotel for two night. The party was made up of 12 ladies. All of us liked the hotel. The room are clean and well presented, we had a mixture of rooms some twin rooms some double rooms and some triple rooms all great. The location of this hotel is fabulous, right in the centre. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was well presented and plenty of it. Breakfast served for a long time from 7am till 10:30 which suited us really well. Some of our party came down for breakfast at 10:25 and the staff never bothered, didn't rush them or refuse them breakfast due to the time. Tea and coffee in the room, and toiletries in the bathroom, clean towels and sheets each day. What more can I say. I would highly recommend this hotel as we had a great stay and i will be staying here again in the future.

I recommend this hotel as it is in a great location and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is very nice and the breakfast was enjoyable. There wasn't a fridge in my room and I needed to store medicine in their fridge, which was not a problem at all. The fridge was in the bar in the lobby and as someone is at the front desk all night it was safe there. The hotel is very secure, you must swipe a card to gain access to the elevators and as I stated before there is always someone on the front desk. Our room was clean and quiet. There is a great little pub right outside also which was a nice way to meet some of the locals. I would stay here again.

After a river cruise from Bucharest to Amsterdam we booked this hotel due to it's great location in the heart of the city. The only great thing about this hotel is the location and a decent rate (145 Euros/night). The rest of it is only average. The included breakfast was a continental type with toast, fruit, yogurt, cold meats/cheese and cold cereals. During our stay there was a school break and Dam Square was filled with a variety of amusement rides and carnival games which ran late into the night so there was an excessive amount of noise if the window was kept open. The bed was OK but the bathroom was poorly laid out with a shower that had little force to it. There was very little storage space if someone was to want to unpack for a longer stay. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired.
