“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Just back from staying here at the weekend, just the 1 night. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Small room but perfectly adequate. My only issue was that we looked out over the street which was noisy at night. Trams finish about 12 but could hear any traffic and noisy people walking down the road, so we didn't get much sleep. I did ask for a quiet room. Very clean. Breakfast is cold ie cereal, bread, cheese, ham, tea and coffee but more than adequate and is included in the deal. Served 7-10am.There is a secured luggage room where you can leave your case before you are able to check in and also after you have checked out if you need it. The lady at reception was very helpful.

10 mins walk from Central Station (come out at the front entrance) the hotel is located in the road opposite. Central Station is 3 stops from Schipol airport. We got a return ticket for the weekend. Just over 16 euros. Perfect location, 5 mins to The Dam, 10 mins to the red light area and Chinatown. We walked everywhere and managed to do everything we wanted ie Van Gogh museum (this is now closed for refurb) and Rijksmuseum (partially open), Dam square, Nieumarkt, Leidseplein, Vondelpark, Rembrandtplein, Waterlooplein market, The Jordan including Anne Frank's house, Canal trip. All wonderful.

Can recommend Spaanse Ruiter bar virtually next door, Nam Kee Chinese restaurant on Zeedijk 111 and Maoz Falafel for lunch. There is every type of restaurant you could wish for.

I would definitely stay here again though only if I could be assured of a room the other side of the hotel!

Please feel free to email if you need to ask anything. Enjoy:-)

Just back from a 3 night stay and really enjoyed this hotel. We had room 55 which looks out into the street. Traffic noise wasn't a problem. Breakfast is typical continental style, but has a better selection than most of this type. There is a safe luggage room for early arrivals and late departures which is good. There is no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms which is a bit of a pain, but you can buy coffee in the downstairs lounge. Overall a safe,clean,and friendly hotel with a particularly gorgeous receptionist.

Smallish rooms but very well presented with gorgeous views of one of the main streets in Amsterdam leading to The Dam (centre of town) which is only a 5 minute walk - literally! Service was very helpful and the breakfast was delightful!! Definitely would stay again.

Very modern and clean with large windows that overlooked the street. Friendly and helpful staff willing to help you find your way around and great location. The hotel was easy walking distance from the train station and the Anne Frank House. We have recommended this hotel to friends and would definitely stay there again.

very central location with good breakfast. room was spacious and although a single traveller i was given a bouble bed room which was appreciated. it was a hot weekend - no aircondition but the fan helped. you could walk to most places and the tram outside the door was useful and the price of the ticket makes you want to use it.

Room Tip: my room was over the street which was ok but with the hot weather i kept the window open and this me...
