“Perfect Gem in Central”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We were visiting Amsterdam for a few days waiting for a cruise to begin and stayed at the Sint Nicholaas. It was just about perfect for us. I love the art deco decor of the common areas and each room is specially decorated differently due to recent remodeling. The location is wonderful in the central area of the city and you can walk to numerous attractions readily. The staff is friendly and helpful, even helping us with some necessary communication back to the states. The included-breakfast was sumptious and there was ample room for the diners. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Amsterdam!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room as we always do and it was provided with no hassle.

The hotel is located 5min walk away from the Central Station, which is very convenient to get almost everywhere in AMS. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
A room was tidy but rather small. No hot breakfast except toasts. Look elsewhere if you can't live without bacon.
To sum it up:
Pros: great location and friendly staff.
Cons: a tiny room and modest breakfast.

We travelled to and from Amsterdam by train, staying for three nights at the beginning of a longer holiday across Europe.

The hotel is just 5 minutes from the station, which was perfect for us.The hotel feels pleasantly 'in the middle' of everything, and we walked everywhere really easily from Sint Nicolaas. The area felt fine to me; we didn't return till late most nights and it never felt like there was anything to worry about in the neighbourhood.

Communal areas and exterior of the hotel were appealing - some really nice attention to detail. Breakfast was good, staff laid-back

However, in common with other reviewers who had the misfortune to stay on the 4th floor, our room really wasn't up to much. It was tiny, stuffy and awkwardly shaped, which didn't bother us too much, but paired with the dubious-looking stains on the walls, un-hoovered carpet, shabby bathroom and budget mattress it really wasn't worth £150 a night or a 'boutique' label. I notice others have commented on the state the rooms are left in after they've been 'made up' for the day - ours looked like it had been rolled on by a labrador!

All in all, we left having had a great time in Amsterdam, but very much looking forward to a cleaner and more comfortable room for the next leg of our holiday. Would not stay here again!

Room Tip: Avoid 4th floor at all costs!

The most comfortable stay at this Hotel, definitely met my expectations and more. Will use this hotel again when i visit Amsterdam next.

The Hotel is a simple 10 min journey from Schipinol Airport and literally 5 mins from the Amsterdam Central Station.

Long weekend stay for a family wedding - stayed in the hotel with my son (twin singles), right in the centre of Amsterdam - but far enough not to be disturbed by any noise at night. Great location to see the sights as well as do a bit of shopping. 5-10 minute walk from Central Station...easy! Rooms very clean and the staff friendly. Attention to detail is what I like to see and this hotel had loads of it, from the stylish art deco designed interior to the cleanliness of the room/bathroom - will definitely stay there again :)

Room Tip: Only downside - no air con, but good ventilation and the room had a couple of chrome fans. But consi...

I'm picky when it comes to hotels, and I was very happy here. This hotel presents Outstanding location, amenities, cleanliness and value for a family trip. The included daily breakfast is an added bonus. Don't pay more for the better known chains. I would stay here again.
