“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

This hotel is ideally located - very easy to get to on public transport from the airport and within walking distance of all the major attractions.
Although travelling solo, I booked a double room. I dread to think what it would have been like if there had been two of us! The bathroom door is frosted glass, but you can still see exactly what is behind it (in shadow), so there is no privacy. You have to climb over the loo to get to the shower. The room is an OK size for one person; it is a bit shabby but perfectly clean. The heating only works if your room key is in the holder, so coming back after a long day out it took a very long time to warm up, if at all.
Staff were business-like but not especially friendly. However, the guy behind the bar was very kind.
This is the sort of place to stay if you just want to lay your head down but that isn't a criticism. It served my purposes very well.

We had the XL room, which indeed was big and comfy. But the thing is that, while I had a refrigerator, my parents didn't. This is not very acceptable, considering we had the same kind of room. The rooms were pretty dark as well, it was terrible to apply your make-up in such bad lighting. But, the bed was lovely though! The design of the room was amazing as well, so no comments on that. The service was more than amazing: everyone was so friendly and helpful! Whenever we asked something, we got an answer with a smile. That made our stay very enjoyable. The breakfast was good. Nothing out of the ordinary, just the usual, tasty and well prepared stuff. Bonus: the hotel was incredibly clean!

Nice hotel, really close to Rembrandtplein (where you can find starbucks and othe international food chains and a few bars). The rooms are REALLY small, it was kind of awkward moving inside the room, but is ok if you just go there to sleep at night (pretty much what everyone does).

Breakfast is really really good and the is a nice hotel overall. I would come back.

Note: you can't smoke pot on this hotel, is forbiden and when you enter the room there is a letter that says that they may kick you out of the hotel if they discover you.

Not a big deal I guess, anyway you have a coffeshop right next to the hotel where you can smoke all the weed you want.

The first room we received was an accessible room that had a wheelchair-accessible bathroom (neither of us were disabled in any way) without a real shower. The room smelled like someone had died in there and there was even blood spots on the dresser. We looked out the window to see our view was part of the roof of the hotel and looking directly into other guests' rooms.

We immediately went back to front desk and after some convincing they finally switched our rooms. The new room was simple, clean, and was two single beds pushed together. We were only there for the night so it was OK but would probably choose somewhere else for a longer stay.

The location was good and central but the way the windows were situated our room didn't have much of a view.

Room Tip: If you're put in room 141 ask for a different room immediately

Not bad access to the city, say 30min walk to the old quarter. Room was two single beds and was pretty tight with v small toilet/shower. Clean. View on a wall. Not cheap but matched the expectation - not a top pick however could depend on the luck of the draw with the room.

You can easily walk anywhere from this hotel. Room was big but bathroom was a little small even still you can't fault this hotel. Beds made and towels changed daily and all staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again

Unmatched for price, location, service, and cleanliness. On a beautiful canal near the city center. Great restaurants nearby -- in particular Wagamama across the street -- and the tram stop at Rembrandt Square a block away takes you everywhere if you tire of walking. However, the shower in our room didn't have a curtain and they provide dispensed liquid body soap (not a bar), so bathing was more challenging and less satisfying than you'd expect from a hotel of this quality. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, nonetheless!
