I stayed here for a long weekend in april 2013 and after reading reviews and seeing pictures here on Trip Advisor I was expecting a pretty grubby, basic room. Our room was infact beautiful, very clean and modern (although it was quite small) and the shower was amazing, I think it has recently been refurbished. Maids came daily to tidy room and give fresh towels etc. 5 minute walk from Amsterdam central station and close to everything you need. Will definitely be booking this hotel when I return to amsterdam,

We booked the cordial as it offered bed and breakfast and a private bathroom which the other cheaper hotels we looked at didn't offer. Bathroom is small and over toilet but shower is lovely and hot, excellent pressure too! Very good central location, reason we picked it! Breakfast was the same but enjoyable, eggs, meat, jam etc. Nice staff, helpful if asked. Overall we loved it, only problem was very soft mattress! Kept rolling out! Definitely not a 5 star (untidy paint work, bits here and there) but you get what you pay for and the location really makes up for it.

This is possibly the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. No one bothered to tell us about the roadworks going on all day and the motor bikes at night. The bathroom was an accident waiting to happen - with the shower over the toilet - so you are standing on a very slippery surface. You can fall - I did - which is fine except as I fell my arm knocked the hot water tap - turning it higher so of course I got scalded. No tea and coffee in the room which is very old and manky - the curtains don't fit the windows at all. The breakfasts were dire - we could not eat the food. BUT THE STAFF were again fantastic but sadly they could not make up for the 2 nights of hell we endured.

Room Tip: You cannot choose a good room - there are none! Book elsewhere

I stayed at this hotel at beginning of October. The hotel has a great location but that is the only good point. On turning up at the hotel the guy at reception was more interested in his Facebook use rather than serving me. He was not very helpful or friendly. I stayed in room 108 which was just horrible. The decor was from the 70's and very dirty. It was a twin room with two single beds pushed together. The beds were very old and you just sunk down into them. The bathroom was also very dirty and kept flooding when having a shower. The shower kept falling off the wall, in fact everything was falling off the walls. I don't think I have been in a worse hotel. Sleeping on the streets would have been cleaner and more comfortable.

Stained bedding, dirty room, blocked drains, no wifi in rooms, expensive for a hole!
Noisey, hot rooms, but does have a lift, can't comment on breakfast as chose not to venture
there after looking at the cleanliness of the rooms.
