“Excellent staff, good service and quite good price for Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights.
We booked the small double room with a small queen bed and the room was actually really small, but after all quite confortable. Spaces within the room is pretty well organized. And also the bed is not so small. It is a standard queen bed in my opinion.
The hotel is in a four floor builiding, our room was in the fourth floor, but being there the lift we did not have any problem in bringing up and down our stuff.
Breakfast is simply but quite good. A lot of salty dishes, but jam and chocolate sauce are in any case available if you want a sweet breakfast.
Staff is really excellent. Very kind and supportive. Very precise in providing suggestions and informations.
Position is optimal! All the city actractions are at walkable distance. Very close to Vondelpark, Museumplein and Leidseplein. De Jordaan, Dam square, Red Light District are reachable with a 15 minutes walk.
What else? Oh I am forgotting Snoep (I do not know how it is written, it should mean Candy) the sweet cat you can meet in the hotel corridors. She will purr by just hearing the sound of your voice talking to her.

This is a small hotel on a quiet street near Leidseplein and the Rijksmuseum, easily accessible by Bus 197 from Schiphol. My room, though small, was adequate for one person, very clean, and the mini bar fridge was nice to have. The breakfast room with small garden is pleasant with a filling choice of cheese, cold cuts, eggs, cereal, yogurt, and bread. If you are interested in the museums this is an excellent choice, 5 minutes away, and only a 20 minute walk to Dam Square. I would stay here again.

This hotel has very friendly staff. Room was small but had everything I needed.
Good breakfast with excellent terrace. This hotel has the added advantage of having a lift, a real bonus in this type of hotel.

Hotel is on a quiet street just off Vondel Park (diagonal to tram street Overtoom and Nassaukade leading to Rijksmuseum). Stayed in a family room for one week, very spacious, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good and served in a pleasant room open to a sweet little garden where we even saw a hedghog one evening! Walking distance to just about everything.

I had a tiny single room that was perfect for a couple of nights in the Museum District at a very affordable rate. Pleasant quiet location, friendly staff, good daily breakfast provided in a spacious room with a view of the backyard where wild parrots could be seen eating from a bird feeder.
