This was a fantastic hotel with character and very close to Dam Square and tram stop. Excellent location.
The staff were extremely helpful and polite.
We loved the Beatles picture in our room (especially as my husband is a musician!)
The breakfast room / bar area was gorgeous - deep purple and very atmospheric - we want to stay there again - would recommend it.

I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. My stay was late April 3013. Small hotel right in the heart of everything. Staff very friendly and helpful. Six floors with elevator. Air conditioning.Flat screen TV.The main shopping district is a short walk two blocks away. Plenty of Cafes in a four block area. Walk to canal tours, grand station, and coach city tours of Amsterdam and surrounding tulip fields and gardens. Walk 2 blocks to large nice grocery store and Deli. Hotel has a charming and nicely decorated breakfast area serving great free morning breakfast. This area serves as a small bar and lounge in the evening. Hotel is clean. No street noise? Occassional slight muffled noise between rooms. What could be wrong? Matchbox rooms. Yes, I have stayed in small hotel rooms in Europe, but my room was really tiny. One of us had to get in or on the bed so the other could get dressed or move about. Bath tiny , but workable and clean. Would I stay here again? Solo, you bet. Two people...? I would probably sacrifice locations e terrific staff for a little more space.

Room Tip: Ask for the biggest room

Great location along the north edge of the Marais with convenient access to sightseeing, local eats and transportation hubs. The very comfortable bed provided for an excellent night's sleep. The large, recently renovated ensuite bathroom was a nice surprise although water always leaked onto the floor when showering. Internet was included, but required repeated log-ins each time the smartphone or tablet had to reconnect. Very little sound buffering between bathroom and neighbouring suite made the space a little less private than I would have expected. Overall, great value for the price.

The location is fantastic - close enough to most things (Central station, Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank House etc) to walk everywhere. Excellent service at reception - we arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we were given a seat in reception and offered a complementary drink while we waited; very happy to print out tickets for the museum which we ordered on line. The hotel is clean but the room we had was small; we didn;t have much luggage which was fortunate as I don;t know where we would have stored a large suitcase! However, the beds were comfortable and we didn't spend much time in the room so the lack of space wasn't a real problem. It seemed rather expensive for the size of the room, but I guess we paid for location.

Zentral location, modern furnished rooms, however some of them are very small, with window into the inner courtyard, therefore very darkly. Bathroom doesn't meet the requirements - too small, no showertube and a shower curtain instead of a shower wall.
