“Easter at the Citadel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights over easter and have nothing bad to say about this hotel. The hotel and rooms are very clean and we found the staff very helpful. You cant really ask for a better location for the hotel, its just a short walk from the train station and dam square.

So.. Me and my friend had booked to stay 3 nights over Easter. We arrived in the morning although we was aware we couldn't check in our room until 2.00pm but we was able to leave our luggage in the luggage room.

The buffet breakfast was ok.. They had things from cereal to eggs to rolls/crossiant and cold meats and cheeses.. Not a large variety but what they offer is enough..

Our room was very clean.. Well equipped and had everything we needed.

The hotel destination was perfect.. Dam square just up the road one way and Amsterdam central station the other way..

Would probably not stay again out of choice but this wouldn't be for any reason other than wanting to explore and experience other hotels

Thank you to all of the staff for making this experience very pleasant

Considering that Amsterdam is not a town to find a good hotel and the prices are very high-no value for money-, then CITADEL, was a rather good solution.The location is very central, the staff efficient,and they take care of the problems.We had a rather bad surprise the first night when we checked in.They gave us a very small room in the fourth floor, and the bathroom was all-in one!Just a curtain to separate the shower.We needed boots! to get into there after a shower, the water stayed in the floor for hours!We explained the situation to the staff, and they gave us another room in 7th floor, much bigger and with a proper bathroom!
The breakfast was good,the rooms clean, and convenient although there are small..But..thats Amsterdam
