“Basic but the staff are really friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Easy to find - you can take bus 197 from outside the airport and it stops 2 seconds from the hotel. Trams 16 and 5 stop nearby and they are really useful. We took tram 5 to Dam Square and then walked around. It would have been better if it wasn't so cold! The hotel itself is basic but clean. The staff are so friendly and always willing to help! The only problems we encountered were other guests being really loud in the hallway - the rooms are also very close together which was a bit annoying. Oh and I had to have a cold shower as there was no hot water - not great when it is -5 outside! If I ever visit Amsterdam again I will be sure to stay there but will make sure I don't stay on the 1st floor.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the 1st floor as lots of noise and rooms very close together!

This hotel is in a great location... away from the touristy areas of town. It's easy to get places from this hotel using the trams and there are several museums right around the corner. The room was simple, but we really liked it. The one drawback is that the door to the room was not really 'sound proof'. We heard everything that was going on in the hallway. The people that worked at the desk were pleasant and cheerful. Over all a great stay. Thanks!

The concept of the Hotel is to be ecologically. They use only natural sources of energy, recycled materials and the breakfast included only biological products. The personal of the Hotel is ever benn extreme guests-orienteed and helpfull. Very well located (near Museumsquare and in front of a tram stop that leads direct in the centre of the town). The rooms are clean and we have got a very large room. Just a little problem.. they have biological mattresses with coconuts filling. Very very soft. I mean...if you are used to sleep on hard mattresses well, can be a little problem. The price was average (60€ per night with breakfast almost 80 for two persons). I would reccomend it just because I find this concept extreme intelligent and smart.

Room Tip: Don't take rooms on the ground floor. The hotel is quite small and the rooms are all next to the...

This hotel is by no means a fancy 4 star hotel but you get all you really need for a comfortable stay and a good nights sleep! Staff in this hotel are probably the most friendly i have ever come across. This is an eco friendly hotel. Beds were so comfortable and hotel was spotless clean. good bathroom and shower with all you need. rooms were nice and warm even though it was minus 10 outside.. highly recondmend this to anyone going to amsterdam for a city break.

For our needs the location was ideal.
The eco friendly concept is neat. ( I just thought it strange when the person at the front desk asked me if I don't drink tap water, when I purchased a bottle of water that they sell in the lobby. They also didn't have any recycling container for paper or plastic in the bedroom.)
Breakfast and not even coffee and tea was included in the rate. The breakfast was satisfactory, but expensive compared to other possibilities in the area.
The elevator wasn't in good working order and there were guests who were dependent on it.
Overall not a bad stay...

We thought the location was great,service very friendly and helpful while efficient. Nice lobby decor with interesting books. We enjoyed the Eco focus, but would have enjoyed tea making facilities complementary as paying guests. There were times when my partner felt like the room was overheated, although I loved that as it was freezing outside

We loved the idea of a hotel with an ethical agenda so were excited about going to stay.

We booked a double room which we got for a good price, but when we got there it wasn't a double room - it was a room with two single beds pushed together - they were made up as single beds! My partner had even specifically requested a double bed on the booking, not two singles pushed together - this request was clearly ignored. They didn't have any other double rooms available so we had to get a taxi to their other hotel in Vondelpark, where we were given an actual double room.

It's all very well having a good agenda but if you can't get the basics right then something needs addressing.

Cleanliness was below average, staff were pretty unhelpful (the guy at Museum Square was plain rude), the breakfast was nice but overall this place isn't somewhere we'd go back to.
