“Fine rooms in this hotel, close to museumsplein”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

The hotel is situated close to museumspleun, in walkingdistance.
After the museums take the tramp to the citycenter it takes app. 15 minutes.
Supermarked is situated 200meter from the hotel..
We bought Amsterdam card, a very good idea, and we saved a lot of money.

Lovely modern hotel at a reasonable price. Room was clean and very spaceous with clean towels every day. We were on the ground floor, think the penthouse suites are on the top floor, so no problem with lifts or stairs for us. Staff were very friendly and very helpful with directions and local knowledge of trams, buses museums etc. Only down side was the TV reception was not the best in our room, but as we were only in it to sleep it didnt matter to us.
Five minutes from city centre (Dam Square) on the trams or if you feel like it approx 30 minutes walk.
Only ten minutes walk from Van Gogh museum and ten minutes from Anne Frank House.
Airport is 20 minutes in a Taxi, 36euro.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Top class service and style. We were well looked after, and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff.

The rooms may have period windows that can be a little drafty if they don't shut properly. But that is mainly due to the character of the building.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really liked this hotel. Good location, 10 minutes walk to museum district, 10-15 to Leiden Square. The hotel is brand new and modern, the room is well decorated and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. WIFi is quick and efficient. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, there are some cafes nearby with excellent choice of food.

Very nice experience overall. Will come back.

It was a ground floor hotel, with no view (you had to be careful not to be seen from the people passing outside or by the buildings nearby), no fresh air, only air condition and no breakfast included in a pretty high price. The third day we came back in an uncleaned room and they had also forgotten the detergent in our bath!

Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate this and it helps us to improve our service. Our hotel is situated on the ground floor and on the sixth floor. This is because the building had several facilities. For example two other hotels, lunchroom, residents who live in the building. Please do not hesitate to book a room on the sixth floor next time. These rooms also include a private terrace with an amazing view.
I am really sorry to hear that your room was dirty when you returned to your room. I communicated this to our housekeeping manager and we discussed the issue so it won't happen again. We forwarded this to all our employees to pay extra attention. We do love to welcome you back in our hotel.
