“Convenient location with parking”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We needed an Amsterdam Hotel with parking - we had a car load of stuff to deliver. We also wanted something in the centre of Amsterdam. The RHO hotel fitted the bill, just off Dam Square. The hotel was reasonably priced - nowhere in central Amsterdam is cheap.

The room we had was fine for a couple of nights: not huge but spotlessly clean. On the other hand, the lack of air conditioning might be a problem for Americans. Wifi was available in the very large and pleasant lobby, but there was no signal in our room (which is annoying these days -- it's not hard or expensive to add routers these days). The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK but not inspired.

Stayed here in August 2014. Think slightly overpriced for facilities. Room rather small but spotlessly clean. Lovely cotton bedding. Lighting rather dull in our room. Staff very friendly.would have like tea or coffee making facilities in room, however there were vending machines in foyer. Breakfast was good and plentiful.

We arrived at the Hotel, at 8.00 am in the morning after a 23 hour flight from Australia. Even at this early hour we were able to book in and go to our room. We were also able to have breakfast, which is a good buffet breakfast. Rooms are quiet and comfortable. We were also given an airconditioned room. We had stayed at the Rho, twelve months earlier, and my husband was remembered as the man with the Dutch face,dutch name, with an Australian accent. The Rho is within walking distance to Dam Square, a great place to stay. Highly recommend and great attentive staff.

This hotel used to be a theatre. It is located right off Dam Square, close to the Red Light District. The hotel is fair - no air conditioning in the rooms but there is air conditioning in the hallway!? We opened the windows (which didn't have screens) onto an open-air atrium which was nice for a breeze. The bed could have been better - it was old. Overall, it was OK.

Room Tip: Not a great choice but close to Dam Square where there is a lot of transportation choices.

Within walking distance of everything in Amsterdam. Good value, excellent breakfast buffet. No air conditioning, but fans and open windows made it comfortable. Very attentive staff. We slept well with comfortable beds and very little noise.

This was our second stay here - some 10 years after the first. The corridors, rooms & overall decor have been very tastefully refurbished: bathroom re-tiled, new fixtures & fittings,new beds, new double glazing, carpets, etc. Altogether an improvement on what was a pretty good hotel before. The location is wonderful, only a couple of hundred yards from the Dam Square, the effective centre of town, & on a fairly quiet street with its share of bars, cafes & restaurants.
However, for a large, busy hotel the one small, slow lift is abysmally inadequate: long waits for it to arrive, only to find two young back-packers taking up all the space. A distinct minus, if you can't man-handle your luggage up or down 3 floors of stairs!
But, the big "no-no" in August, is the lack of air-conditioning! The corridors to our room from the lift were more cooled than you would want but the room was stifling with the afternoon sun pouring in. We promptly shut the heavy curtains & propped the door open to the corridor, to "steal" some of the chilled air there, which we tried to waft around the room with the small fan provided.
The window gave onto an interior courtyard, so it was very quiet &, once the sun was below the roof-line, the opened window gave some relief from the heat.
The very large building immediately opposite the Rho is undergoing a long & noisy major refit, so a room in the front of the hotel will be very noisy indeed, for some time to come.
The breakfast buffet was very busy, but good: all the usual items in good supply. Full marks.
Our room (338) had no Wi-Fi. TV had adequate English channels (BBC World Service, CNN, etc.)
Information provided by the Reception staff on both days, concerning location & type of certain restaurants was erroneous & thoroughly misleading!! On neither evening were we able to find the selected restaurant at the place marked by them on their own hotel-issue Map. Extremely disappointing & a major let-down for an expensive, centrally located hotel - they should do better.

Room Tip: Opt for an interior room, facing the courtyard, for quietness.

We stayed for one night at the Rho Hotel. Room was clean and comfortable, staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good. The hotel is very centrally located, handy for bars and restaurants, and just a ten minute walk from the Central Station. We would recommend this hotel.
