Reviewed January 30, 2014

Slept here for one night in the midst of january 2014.
Entrance by car was somewhat difficult due to road construction, parking costs are € 20 a day.
The hotel is old and so are the elevators and the rooms.
When first entering the room i smelt a penetrating body odor, which was quite disgusting. Needed to open the windows a couple of hours to get rid of the smell.
View from the room on higher floors is great.
Bedding is fine, bathroom very small and old, soap and shampoo in good order.
All in all a great location that should appeal to many visitors.
For the price offered i prefer a newer (and cleaner) hotel in the outer circle of Amsterdam.

I was extremely satisfied with my stay at this hotel. It was excellent value for money, beds were comfortable and clean, room was clean, I had a great view, the shower was great and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I shall certainly recommend this hotel to friends. It is basic but really good .

Room Tip: try to get a room on one of the top floor overlooking the park which is quieter than the street with...

We really enjoyed our three day stay at this hotel. The room was small but clean and modern looking. The breakfast was offered to us at 12 euros if we pre booked and 19 euros if not but it is expensive and we ate out much cheaper. The location is superb with tram no 9 right outside which takes you directly to the dam. Staff are very friendly and the beds comfy. The hotel may not look very attractive from the outside but inside it is modern and clean. Also the massage chairs are a must in the lobby for 2 euros. I would definitely stay again.

An excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff and very good breakfast.
The Location is great and the view from the 8th floor was fabulous.
The only downside was that the (free!) internet connection had to be renewed every 24 hours, and was somewhat limited - video Skype talks were limited to short time.

The hotel is in a great location, only 10 minutes to the centre on the no.9 tram and it goes right through the dam square (only 16.50 for a 3 day pass).

Rooms are nice enough, we didn’t spend much time in it as we were too busy sightseeing. TV has comedy central, bbc 1 & bbc 2 which was a bonus. Our room had a safe but the couple we were with didn’t have 1 in theirs so may be worth checking.

Staff were very friendly and helpful when we asked for directions or information.

We did not take up the breakfast option but there are a few cafes, bakeries, supermarkets & fast food restaurants across the road. Had no problems at all and would stay here again.

The service was superb, I loved my room, the location is okay and the amenities were ok too. I liked the friendliness of your staff. What I liked least was that I had to leave the building each time I wanted to smoke
