This Hotel is an (almost) hidden gem! It is close to everything and the reception staff is friendly and helpful! A nice added feature is that a continental breakfast is included in the cost of the room rental and there are a lot of food options literally next door, and all along both sides of the street. The hotel rooms are non-smoking but you can open the windows for ventilation, contains a safe, has firm beds (but not too firm) and has a relatively small bathroom. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Central Station.

Stayed for two nights, reception staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Rooms were nice and clean and light, bathroom small but we had fresh towels and a safe in our room. We were in a room at the front of the hotel and the noise from the street was fine.
Breakfast was simple and basic but did the job and it was nice.
Perfect location for a group of friends, just off dam square and 5 minutes from the red light district. Plenty of bars and restaurants and shops nearby.
Would stay again with a group of friends.

Myself and 5 other friends stayed here for a long weekend break. We had two triple rooms and our own separate single bed. Tea, coffee and a kettle are provided but the tea/coffee were not refreshed.

The location was perfect and it was easy to walk everywhere. However, due to the location it almost meant the area was quite loud. The rooms do not have air con, but a fan is provided, so you’ll need to have the windows open in summer. Therefore, I’d recommend only staying here if you’ll be partying yourself or are a heavier sleeper. Also note in true Amsterdam style the stairs are quite steep.

We arrived around 11am and the room was not ready, so we left our luggage in the luggage room. I am unsure if our room was ever cleaned as our beds were never made, but my friends room was. We did get fresh towels everyday. We had breakfast included which was adequate, with eggs, bread, cheeses, meats and cereal and did the job.

They had wifi which worked quite well, except the last day when it didn’t work for a few hours. This place was good value for money!

My husband and I stayed for five nights in this hotel. It is clean and very comfortable - the beds are really nice to sink into after a long day sightseeing - and the staff are lovely - Milja always greeted us with a big smile and was very helpful.
The hotel is in an ideal situation for touring Amsterdam and so near to the transport hub at Centraal Station. Although there is a lot of noise on Dam Straat, the really good thick blackout lined curtains are excellent at muffling the sounds so this was not a big issue. The stairs may be a challenge for some people - but we were aware of them before booking as this is clearly mentioned on the website and did not find them a problem. We are really glad we found this hotel when searching for a suitable place to stay and would definitely recommend it. Thank you for helping us to have a wonderful holiday ( and we had perfect weather too!)

Room Tip: We were on third floor, far enough above street level to muffle sound with the help of the good curtains.
