“Cozy, perfect location, nice atmosphere, good service, and a little but”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a perfect hotel to visit Amsterdam. The price was very very good, and the location is simply perfect. Three minutes to the Central Station, two minutes to Dam Square, close to everything at a walking distance.
Nice breakfast included. Charming atmosphere with a recent renewal and a trendy interiorism. Artificial chimeny with real fire to give a very nice atmosphere.
Bathroom new, clean and well equiped.
We had a problem regarding prices, linked to the cancelation of one of the guests. I announced such cancelation 5 days prior to arrival, and they wanted me to pay it (even the web page states clearly you can do it till 24hr. I had to discuss very seriously an much moore time than I had wanted to, stressing me a bit. Finally we arrived to an agreement -in the middle position- which did not make me happy, but I accepted.
The noise produced by the tram is clearly audible from the rooms even with windows closed, so take your room in the other side.
Even so, the overall perception is very good. I will come back to Sint Nicolass and this jewel city

Room Tip: Dont take the rooms on the tram facane, Close yourprice agreements clearly previously by mail

I ended up staying at Hotel Sint Nicolaas after my booking at Maggy's B&B got cancelled upon arrival. The receptionist (unfortunately I do not remember his name) was very friendly and helpful, considering I made a walk-in booking, he even offered me to view the room before deciding whether I would like to stay there or not. The rest of the staff was friendly and helpful as well.

The price was a bit steep for a budget traveler, although it might had to do with my last-minute booking. However, the location of the hotel is fantastic, 5 minutes walk from the train station, right next to the city center. The surrounding streets are busy during the day, but very peaceful at night, so you can expect a good night's sleep even if your room is on the ground floor (like ours was). The room wasn't spacious, however it was cozy, tastefully decorated, and the bed was really comfortable. The breakfast buffet was satisfactory.

We stayed here for one night for a business trip.

Great boutique hotel with lovely rooms and a great central location, right opposite the Central station.

Great breakfast and good value for money.

Limited number of rooms so book early if you don't want to be disappointed!

Stayed here from 17th-19th of jan, so easy to find from the central train station, 5 mins walk. Staff were welcoming and looked after our bags until we could check in. Bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast was alright nothing really special but very handy to have after a night out. 10 min walk from red light district. That area is always buzzing and there is alot to see, loved it! make sure you take enough money so that you are able to do all the little things that are available to do. The first night we went to see a sex show, So so so funny! cannot wait to book a trip back in the summer!
