“very poor very disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

went for 3 nights to see Fleetwood Mac oct 13. great location but thats about it. staff unhelpful an ignorant,nasty smell as you entered,rooms not to bad but found out other guests had seen mice in their room..very noisy in the mornings. DEFINATELY OVERCHARGED but if your looking for a great location an to be on top of everything in Amsterdam then you may be ok with this one.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 1st floor as stairs tire you so much

Pro's
Each room is individually decorated. Excellent location as trams, cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets, shopping, various fast food outlets and attractions near by. The hotel was very clean. $1.5 euro (tea or coffee, egg sandwich & croissant) is a decent breakfast which you get reimbursed for when checking out. Peter (owner) was helpful and made us feel welcomed, other staff were friendly. The bathroom was compact but modern and very clean.

We stayed in room 22 which was at the back so we did not hear any noise. Room 22 was on the top floor which meant we had to climb three lots of steep stairs. It might be a struggle for older people but we were fine with it.

Cons
The only downside was the wireless internet connection in room 22 was extremely weak and at times very difficult to connect too. This can easily be fixed if the hotel places a wireless repeater somewhere closer to room 22.

Finally and hotel without any surprises, the room has very big bed and confortable, nice fornitures, the bathroom is cleaned and have a nice jacuzzi shower.
I am invalid I wear a leg prothesy so i found confortable the shower with the chair to sit inside.
The management is gently and they refund me the price of the breakfast which i cannot use it
I suggest you to visit it.
The stairs to get in, are a bit steeps.

Un hotel con una stanza decente un vero letto e non come molto spesso ti trovi in quelle microstanze dove non riesci a muoverti. Per il prezzo e' il migliore che ho trovato per la posizione centrale e con colazione inclusa.
Il bagno ha una doccia Jacuzzi con molte funzioni per l'eta' che ha,
Le scale sono un po ripide e non vi e' ascensore.
Consiglio

Room Tip: they have a nice website to choose the rooms. Hanno un sito che rispecchia le foto.

Good hotel, good location next to Rembrandt Platz where you can take the tram to visit the city or to go to the Centraal Station. Next to the hotel you can find some restaurants and bars. The hotel doenst have an elevator, so the luggage is problem if it is heavy. You can have a breakfast at HEMA not far from the hotel. The room is clean, good beds and the decoration is perfect!

Three of us (grandma's!) stayed in one room for 4 days and enjoyed every moment. The room was large enough for 3 beds, enough space for our luggage and the bathroom was fine. We did not mind the breakfast arrangement. The hotel is as central as can be. The noise at night was not a problem as we closed the windows. This is after all Amsterdam!!! Not a retirement village. Good value for money!

Best location you can think of! There are absolutely quiet rooms (not all of them). Very - very positive staff. 2 * - the best decor what I saw. Even breakfast is available for free. (not in the hotel, but very close)

Room Tip: Room 12 was perfect! Quiet, despite the proximity of the crowd. Large, spacious and bright.

The only good thing I can say about this hotel is its location (noisy but only 20 minutes walk to the city centre). It´s the worst customer service I´ve ever experienced, I felt like they´re making us a favour for letting us stay there. At 9 am the cleaner started with the hover, and when I asked her if it would be possible to do it a bit later because we got there quite late due to a delayed flight she said if I didn´t want to hear the noise I could use ear plugs. I told this to the owner and he showed a very offensive and impolite attitude. It was more the manners than the content. Not the kind of place I´d ever recommend to anyone. Not good value for money either.
