“Hotel with a good location”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I stayed in the Rho Hotel for 2 nights 8th & 9th November 2012. The hotel was very clean and comfortable but without the luxury frills of other more expensive hotels. My room was spacious although being on the top (4th floor) it did have a sloping roof. Excellent location right on Dam square. The restaurant was only open for breakfast but that did not really matter as there are hundreds of eateries right on the door step. Breakfast was good, excellent choice, both hot and continental styles. Good value for money as hotels in central Amsterdam can be very expensive.

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd floor room as the 4th floor has sloping roofs and the 1st 2 floors may be affected by o...

Went with a group of 12 people, this hotel was great, everything we needed. Value for money, decent breakfast. Best thing about it is the location, right on Dam Square. Staff on reception were very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If you have mobility issues make staff aware - my friend opened his room door and it went straight d...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rho hotel. Our rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, though a chest of drawers would have been useful for storage of clothes, as we were there for 6 days. The continental breakfast was very good; there was plenty of choice. The staff were all friendly and the reception staff were efficient and helpful, particularly in recommending suitable restaurants and suggesting purchase of museum tickets in advance to avoid lengthy queues.The hotel is in an ideal position just around the corner from Dam Square, so very central. We would definitely stay there again if we return to Amsterdam.

This hotel is in a side road off of Dam Square and is convenient for everything. The breakfast was more than we expected, not just the usual continental bits and pieces, but scrambled eggs, bacon and pancakes.
The staff were friendly and chatty, there is free use of a computer if like us you want to check in on line for the flight home and they will look after your bags for you if you have a late flight.

Room Tip: rooms on higher floors are probably a bit quieter.

I have stayed here every time I visit Amsterdam for the last 16 years. The first time I stayed here it was simply because it was central and with a car park, but I liked it so much that I always come back. I always reserve by email these days and it's always easy and with a fast confirmation. There are a lot of rooms and they all seem to differ in style and size, but the beds are always very comfortable and perfectly clean.

The restaurant is small, but the breakfast is impressive.

Basically, if you are looking for a mid priced hotel in that part of town then you won't go wrong.

Room Tip: I like the top floor attic rooms, they have loads of character.

This hotel has many good points: 1) central location 2) surprisingly quiet 3) clean and spacious rooms 4) comfortable beds 5) exceptionally friendly and helpful staff.

The centre of the hotel/lobby area is a characterful, former music hall. The bedrooms are modern and are situated off surrounding courtyards. This creates a maze of endless corridors, mini-ramps, steps here and there - the effect is quirky but it would be near impossible to find your way out in the event of a fire.

The courtyard setting also means that the bedrooms have little natural light. Our 2nd floor bedroom really needed a ceiling light. The total lighting provided by the wall lights and bedside lights was inadequate for reading/putting in contact lenses/ applying make-up etc.

Breakfast is included in the price but the ingredients are of poor quality. It is an eat-as-much-as-you-like buffet which would be great for students/budget travellers. However, as a 3 star hotel, I would have preferred less food of better quality.

Finally, if you are already booked into this hotel, I would recommend you take your own towels. The hotel towels are old - thin, stiff and more grey than their original white.

I would not choose to stay in this hotel again.

Just returned from a Viking river cruise and stayed 2 nights first in Amsterdam at the Rho hotel on Dam square. The price was excellent and the location was great. Room was small but had the corner room on 4 floor so had 2 windows for a cross breeze which was super. Breakfast was buffet with a good variety and the front desk staff were very accomodating.

Room Tip: request corner room and at the back away from the noise from Dam square
