“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

This place is a hotel we booked while staying in Amsterdam for one extra night than what we have planned, and found vacancy in last minute notice. Personally I think the area around it, is the best choice to look for a place to stay. The rooms where clean, but not very pretty. The prices are ok, and the staff is very helpfull.

We booked quite late but managed to get a twin room at the back of the property over looking a (neighbour's) sunny garden. Extremely quiet here. The main advantage of van Onna is it's location and value for money in a city as expensive as Amsterdam in peak season. Very walkable to all attractions and the Canal Bus (actually a boat). Jordaan is a much nicer location than the faceless and same-old city centre hotels, with real character. Local markets are just a few minutes walk away - offering wonderful food and treasures. However, the rooms at van Onna continue to be spartan and small but clean with a safe and basic shower facilities. Lots of stairs, so be prepared to lug your suitcases up and down these as there is no lift. Don't expect too much and you'll do very well here.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the canal are lovely and the bells from the nearby church didn't disturb u...

Wonderfully situated, pleasant staff, friendly hotel. I had a nice room overlooking the Gracht. The weather was exceptionally hot, so sleeping was not always easy, but this is not likely to be a regular problem.

very good balance between the price and the quality of service
One point: Starting time for breakfast should be 7.00am instead of 8.00am
specially when we have to go for a Tour outside the town.
Strong points:
very well located in the town
Good welcoming
Good breakfast

My husband and I arrived in Amsterdam at the cruise port, near the train station, and we could easily walk to this hotel. The location is perfect for exploring Amsterdam and the neighborhood is interesting and appeared to be safe. The hotel is simple, clean, friendly, and provides a nice European style breakfast. Our room had a view of the canal, which was a nice addition. Toiletries, a shower curtain, and a hair dryer was not provided.
