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:-)
