“Comfortable and friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

My sister and I would have to say that we were comfortable staying here. The staff were friendly and it was geninuely a good place. The rooms were quite spacious and the sercurity was well organised. Overall in terms of the agreement as per the advertisement on booking.com we encountered problems with the TV, air-conditioner and Internet ( which were 100% included in the price). It wasnt managed well when I asked for assistance with these issues - no seemed to no anything or want to help. Apart from this setback the location is central and its quite easy to get back into the city centre via tram or foot. Asmterdam is a beautiful little city so your never really disappointed. Overall we enjoyed our time in this hotel and this city. Just maybe more customer service is needed and matienance checks too.

Was a lovely hotel to stay at with very clean and nice looking rooms!

They never informed us on the time we needed to check out which resulted in us having to pay an extra charge each hour we was over the time we was meant to have checked out

On first look this hotel was fine. We hadn't paid a lot for it so we weren't expecting anything fancy just a room! However our bathroom was very mouldy and we woke up on the first morning covered in bites to which we can only assume was bed bugs. Would not return.

Far from downtown not walking distance, not much in the neighbourhood. Building was old, no a/c and wifi wasn't working, but it was cheap to stay at. Spend the extra money and stay somewhere downtown!
