“Great place to stay”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night and found our bedroom on the small side,however the bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you could need,apart from tea and coffee facilities.the location is amazing,looks really small from outside but once you get inside you will be amazed how big it is.
Reception staff are really friendly and helpful,very accommodating.
Breakfast was included in the room rate,not great on refilling food,people needed to ask for food to be cooked and filled up,once there all pleasant and filling.
Great value for money,will definitely be returning.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

I stayed in this hotel with a group of friends on a lost weekend in Amsterdam. Excellent location, clean and tidy rooms, friendly and efficient staff, good breakfast buffet and reasonably priced. Not luxurious but then you're not paying for that. Highly recommended.

Great value for money. Right in the centre of Amsterdam, close to Dam Square, yet quiet. The building is beautiful. The rooms are clean, and the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were really good........great variety. Only downside was there were no facilities in the room for making a drink. There is a coffee machine downstairs at €1 per cup.

We(two couples) arrived at the Rho Hotel in the a.m after flying overnight from Canada,and landing at 6:35 am local time.We had confirmed reservations in our hands,which had been made in early December 2013.The ? manager at the desk promptly told us that the reservations had been cancelled!!! Our credit cards had expired and been renewed in Feb 2014,but instead of making any attempt to contact us,he stated that he had "emailed our travel agent " 3 times in the previous 2 weeks,and when he did not hear from her,he cancelled our "confirmed" reservations.He offered us no assistance to try to find another hotel,except for saying we could use the computer,(which was in use,then affected by a power failure) He really did not seem to care about our situation at all. Our husbands did find other accommodation,by walking the area,but it was a very difficult start to our holiday. We could not really believe that this person did not offer to make some calls to assist us.Based on this attitude we could never recommend this hotel

Stayed at hotel Rho for 2 nights, both with a rude awakening. At the time of our stay there was some construction going on outside of our window which woke us up early both mornings, I may aswell been wearing a hard hat it was that close. There is a total lack of sausage or cooked food for breakfast. With the option of scrambled egg, slices of cheese and tinned fruit I opted for the scrambled egg. The hotel is quite noisy inside, and could frequently hear people engaging in intercourse? However, the location is fabulous.

Very central location just a few short steps from Dam Square, and within walking distance of the "girdle of canals" and other major attractions in Amsterdam. Well preserved atmospheric art deco lobby area (building originally designed as a theatre). Modern functional rooms (which could benefit from air-conditioning), spacious bathroom, good shower. Extensive buffet breakfast (often included in room rate). Helpful staff. Good value.

We stayed three nights in this hotel in May 2014. It is in an excellent location in central Amsterdam, just off Dam Square. Given this fact our room was surprisingly quiet and all the staff were friendly and efficient. There was a good choice at the buffet style breakfast taken in pleasant surroundings. The reception area was spacious, and the common parts were all pleasantly air conditioned. Overall, we thought the hotel provided very good value for money.

Fortunately the weather during our visit to Amsterdam was unusually warm. However as our room, which was on the small side for a double, did not have air conditioning it became uncomfortably hot. In addition there was very little storage space. I would advise future guests at the Rho to be selective about their choice of room.

We would certainly stay at the Hotel Rho again if we return to the Netherlands.
