“Nice hotel with friendly staff and cute cat!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The room is really small, but very clean with a mini bar fridge and a safe, maybe a bit expensive but we're in Amsterdam!
The hotel has four floors and a convenient elevator.
The breakfast offers a choice of ham, cheese, jam, chocolate, slices of bread and toast in a cozy location adjacent to a small courtyard garden.
The location is convenient, close to the center, Dam Square, VondelPark and to the main museums all within walking distance.
But the strong point of the hotel is definitely the kindness of the staff and the sweet cat, Candy, a great traveling companion!

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.
