“Great location 1 minute to Dam Square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2011

Couldn't find anything to complain about, the location was perfect; walking distance to everywhere. Breakfast was plentiful. All the staff were pleasant especially the ones on reception. The room was spacious and adequate. Had a great rate on Late rooms so at 79euros this hotel was a bargain. The free internet in the foyer and Wifi in the rooms was an added bonus.
The restaurant just up the street (next door to Humphreys has exellent food)

What a great hotel. Booked 1single and 1 twin room and on arrival found we had been allocated a room with a double bed which was unsuitable, there was no problem and immediately offered a twin room which was spacious,clean,comfortable with modern shower and bathroom and had a TV and fridge. The staff were very friendly and helpful ,ordered taxis for us and gave us advice and clear directions when asked. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a vast variety cereals,fresh fruit &juices ,cold meats,cheeses,hot bacon & eggs as well as the usual toast, bread buns,etc and tea and coffee, all replenished swiftly by the staff. It had a central location,served by bus and trams and I would definitely stay again.

Just come back from a 3 night stay at this hotel. Well situated from Central station and on 3 tram line routes so easy to commute around the city tho we walked most of the time. Very nice restaurant (Humphreys) just round he corner as well as pubs/cafes within few minutes walk.The staff were very accomodating and friendly. Breakfast plentiful both continental and eggs/bacon available, and refilled regularly by efficient staff. Our room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom obviously recently refurbished. Had TV with some english channels, had own small fridge though no drink making facility, however there was a couple of vending machines in the foyer for snacks/drinks. Would return again.

Very very pleased with my choice of hotel. Nova is centrally located in Amsterdam - near to Dam Square, Red Light District, Centraal Station, Anne Frank Huis etc you can reach these areas in 5-10 minutes by walking.
The rooms are spacious, clean and was warm when we got in. In our room there was a large fridge, safe, TV (with lots of channels), desk, table, chairs, hair dryer and free high speed Wi-Fi. Very nice and much more than I expected.
The bathroom is a good sized too - clean and warm. However, there is no complimentary shampoo (there is free shower caps and shoe shine though) but that's not too important as we brought just enough shampoo for a few days. (There is a supermarket nearby also)
Beds were comfortable and I slept well however you could hear trams go by if you were facing the main street so if you need 100% silence to sleep - I suggest not getting the front rooms.

The reception staff were very friendly, helpful and were present 24hrs a day. There are 3 iMac computers in the lobby - free of charge to use. Also there is a coffee and tea machine in the lobby.

Breakfast was very good - fresh bread, pastries, eggs, bacon, juice, hot chocolate: the choice was wide and I enjoyed my breakfast for the first time in a European hotel!

I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Amsterdam within walking distance of everything you need.

the hotel location is great, the rooms are clean and comfortable with lovely modern bathrooms and good showers. There is no tea or coffee making facilities in the room but you can get this in the foyer. Breakfast is very good with plenty of variety we we surprised how much was on offer. staff were very friendly and helpful - would definitely stay here again. the hotel is nice and quiet but you will get a lot of noise from outside e.g. trams and people but it's right in the city so that's to be expected.
