I stayed one night here on a business trip. I wish I'd spent more time in the hotel but unfortunately work got in the way (darn work ha ha), Hotel is lovely! Rooms are welcoming and bathroom is clean and simply decorated. I loved the dark chocolate decor. The TV was a bit hard to find at first - it took me a while to realise that the mirrored wall in front of me doubled up as a Philips TV! I discovered it as I was holding the remote looking around whilst thinking "what kind of a hotel doesn't have a TV?!". The bed was SUPER comfy - four bouncy pillows - I'm definitely investing in those for my bedroom! There were bathrobes in the bathroom but I didn't use it - no time!. There are tea/coffee making facilities as well as a safe in the wardrobe. A desk and a chair should you need to work, lots of lighting in the room and black out curtains. I was on the ground floor in room 104 - despite this being very close to reception there was no noise to be heard. Perfect. Watch out for checkout time - I wasn't happy that their guide in the rooms states 11.30 but they say that checkout is 11 - bit misleading. Other than this, can't fault the hotel and the location. Entrance is in a lovely courtyard style. Everything is walking distance to the centre (around 15 mins depending on how quickly you walk) it actually takes longer by taxi!

Room Tip: Room 104 was my room and it's pretty lovely.

we stayed here at the weekend - clean rooms v modern pleasant staff good location
however my only gripe are the corridors - because they are tiled you can hear everyone walking past and it meant we were kept awake from early morning between luggage being rolled past and people talking - otherwise nice stay - paid extra to have junior suite - its really a slighter bigger room so if you are expecting a bigger room - book the penthouse suite which im sure are worth the money for view alone!

Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. I forwarded your compliments about our pleasant staff to the entire team and you made them really happy. Great to hear you loved the rooms and location. I am sorry to hear that you heard noises from the corridor. We contacted a company which is an expert in noise reduction last week and we our looking for the best option. So this is in proces. We would love to welcome you back in the future and you are more then welcome to book a penthouse next time.

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.
