“Top of the pops in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Stayed here for business January 2012.

The hotel is in the middle of Amsterdam, yet up a quiet street (Rusland), so there's no noise, even at night. A canal is straight down the road from the Hotel, only 1 minuttes walking.

Hotel includes a bar, and some rooms which overlook the reception and bar area. Cool.

5-10 minutes walk to the Red Light District (which, by the way, is no way what it used to be).

Rooms have all the business class trimmings you'd expect, and plenty of space for everything.

Breakfast great, but be sure it's included at your booking, otherwise it's very expensive to pay for upfront.

Staff were very efficient and sometimes over-eager.

Overall, this is a very nice, romantic, well designed first-class hotel in a good location. Trams and metro are nearby.

Downside is that rates are high, even for Europeans, but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: All rooms are good. The rooms overlooking the reception gives you a funky feeling.

I have been in Amsterdam several times. Still this hotel the is best choice to explore Amsterdam. Location near center but quiet surrounding. Red lights are close but still away. Service and hotel are both excellent. Room is spacious, enough everything in room: iron and desk for ironing, coffee, tea and hot chocolate, free wi-fi. Bathroom is big enough. Shampoo, conditioner etc. are with very good quality.

Great hotel: Nice and spacious rooms, good breakfast, swift and service minded staff, great location but still quietly situated in the city center. We paid 50 Euros extra for a junior suite upgrade.

Only downside – if any – was that our room did not have an outside view, but overlooked the bright and airy reception area.

In addition you might want to ask for softer pillows, as the ones in the beds where very hard and high.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the recetion area - ask for an "outside" view if you are not ok with that.

Stayed here for the weekend, check in was quick and simple. Rooms were nice, warm and had a good home feeling about them - the design of the hotel was new to me as the balcony looked over onto the reception lobby but was pretty nice. A quiet hotel, possibly due to the period I stayed during but was still fine for a group of friends.

Breakfast served from 6:30am and was pretty decent.

Location wise is perfect, right in the heart of Central Amsterdam.

Without a doubt would stay here again!

Room Tip: Stayed in a twin room, more than enough space.

The hotel is very well situated less than ten minutes from Dam Square in a quiet side street. Service at the hotel is excellent with efficient check in. Breakfast was included in the price of the stay, consists of standard buffet style with a good choice of cereals, breads, hot and cold foods, fruit juices etc. Rooms are cleaned and tidied each morning. All in all a good base for business or leisure. This is a spotless hotel and highly recommended.

Fantastic hotel, staff are so cheerful & helpful can not fault nothing with this Hotel.
They upgraded us to Business class and we did not even ask so it was
a lovely surprise when we got to our room it was so beautiful especially
when you pay for a standard room. I did forget I said when booking on line
in the box its my fiances Birthday and on arrival they mentioned to him oh
its your Birthday tomorrow, you can not get a better welcome then that. On the
day of his Birthday they left a card & gift.

Breakfast was lovely so much to choose from. Hotel is just a few minutes walk to town
and its a nice walk so much to see & do.
