“Great, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

I´ve stayed at this hotel with a friend for 5 days and we loved it. The Nova Hotel is located near Dam Square, so you can walk to every important place in Amsterdam by foot (Central Station, Damrak, Anne Frank House, Red Light District)) or taking a tram (there are 2 stops near the hotel - Spui and Raadhuisstraat).
The breakfast was great, and the area where the hotel is located is very quiet.
The hotel staff was very young and nice , polite and attentive.

We struggled to find a hotel that could accommodate three people in one room, and the Hotel Nova had a very well accommodating room for three of us. It's location is amazing almost across the street from Dam Square, plenty of entertainment and eateries nearby. Many sightseeing venues within walking distance with a tram stop in front of the property. The hotel staff is absolutely amazing in their guest service - almost providing the feel of a B&B (by the way breakfast is included). Bathroom updated and clean. Only downside we noted is one which is common to 3 star hotels in Amsterdam - no air conditioning. We understand this is only a concern about 10 days a year, but we happened to be in Amsterdam during those 10 days. That said, I would not have paid the price differential for a 4 star hotel.

Ideally located on a quiet spot just outside of the busy center of Amsterdam. The hotel looks small from the outside, but once you enter it's quite big. And once you enter your room, you will see that it has huge rooms.
Very good beds, clean room and bathroom and great breakfast. Definitely one to keep in mind whenever you travel to Amsterdam.

The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to Magna Carter shopping centre and Anne Franks house. Amsterdam museum is literally down the road and close to local coffee shops. A little far away from the airport. The location is very quiet which I loved. Only problem I had is our bathroom had a rancid smell coming from it when we first walked in. However, once notified, the receptionist rectified the problem straight away. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. There is alot of choice. Free wifi & discount cards in the reception meant we had money off when we dined out at night. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Visited there with friends and the reason was them being one if the only central hotels offering a 3 beds room.
The room was basic, had all you need from a room except AC.
Staff was very helpful and always available.
Location is great, 2 mins from Dam square and any other central location in the city
