“Stunning reception area, convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We visit Amsterdam on average once a year, and have used the Rho Hotel for the last 20 years or so.

The location is perfect: by Dam square, it's very convenient for getting about, and we find the University district which is very near very pleasant for walking about in the evenings and with lots of nice restaurants and bars.

The Art Nouveau reception of the hotel is stunning, and worth seeing. We find the rooms pleasant, and the recent refurbishments are a welcome change.

Housekeeping is the Rho's weak point however. Our stay was for five nights and the sheets in our bed were not changed once. Cleaning is very basic, and it's very clear that housekeeping is not one of the hotel's priorities. A shame.

Great location. Reasonable price Walking distance from station or would suggest cab if you have luggage. Cost about 10 euros including tip. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast was very good for the price paid. Good variety and hot food was hot (often in hotels we find they are not always kept warm)

This was in a best location, right by Dam Square. Everything we wanted to see was right in walking distance! Easy walk from Central Station. We loved it. The rooms were small and very basic, but just what we needed. The breakfast had some good options and the coffee was great. The staff was very friendly.

10 minute walk over cobblestoned streets from the station - just so easy. Superb service from reception staff. Small room but you are in the centre of Amsterdam. We loved the breakfast -loads of variety and lots of chocolate pieces and chocolate spread for my toast - I was in heaven. A light and airy eating are. For a three star hotel we thought the ROH Hotel was excellent

When dropped of at the RHO Hotel we could not believe how close we were to Dam Square and the City. Then we came to our first hurdle. We had to struggle with our baggage up stairs to get to reception. There were a number of staff in reception but no one helped us. After checking in we found our room on the 4th floor to be shocked by the size. So small, barely wider than our bed. The room was clean and tidy, bed was good and after our initial snub by staff we found them helpful.

Room Tip: Great location but try for a larger room.

I Have Stayed 2 Nights recently in RHO Hotel and I have mixed feelings about it . The Hotel Location is great ! Everything was just a walking distance Shops, Historical buildings and the famous nightlife district . My room was on the forth floor a tiny little room with a very basic furnishing and accessories . The WIFI signal was always out of the reach in my room but on the ground floor was working just fine ! The lift was too slow in the busy hours was better to take the stairs . The Breakfast was OK ! Hotel reception staff was very friendly and helpful . My advice would be please do not keep a dog at the reception as I am and other future guests can be allergic to dog hair . The big question is would I stay or would I recommend to anyone to stay here , I am sure there are better hotels in Amsterdam in this price range !

Room Tip: If WIFI is important to you to have good signal in the room , stay no higher than the second floor !

There are some good things and there are some not so good ones.

Pros: central location, parking available. Yes, that's all...

Cons:
The room was tiny. And by tiny, I mean as small as a box. Never before have we stayed in such a confined space. And there was almost no natural light. The hotel itself is a mix of a few buildings, and maybe that's the reason why half the corridors and stairs make no sense, and you MUST use the elevators or you risk getting lost - not fun.
The bathroom was dated. And not just "old but nice and looked after", but more like "refurbishment needed asap!". The bathtub did not hold water, tiles needed some good cleaning at least, the ceiling in the room had water spots... I can go on like this for a while.
Breakfast was good, average, not impressive.

As a bottom line, we'll be back to Amsterdam, the city is great. But we definitely will be staying somewhere else. Not worth the money for what you get at RHO...
