“Small room, but would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

The lobby looks like a trendy cafe and had lots of comfortable seating which made it a nice place to enjoy the free espresso.

The room was VERY small, but it was nice. Everything seemed very clean. The bed was very comfortable...especially the pillows! I have never had such great pillows in a hotel. I felt like I was sleeping on a cloud.

The location was very convenient. There were lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The museums and other attractions were easy to walk to. (Bring an umbrella.). It was also very easy to get to Central Station since the tram stop for Tram 1 is about a block away from the hotel.

There is also a place to rent bikes a few doors down from the hotel.

The single room I had (# 406) was neat and clean, modern and polished but also tiny. I did not even know where to store my small trolley suitcase. It either blocked the doors of the wardrobe or the narrow space around the bed. The bathroom was new and shiny but, again, I had to squeeze myself around the notebook-sized sink to get into the shower.

Breakfast was altogether good and the staff friendly.

I found the location not as scenic or close to the grachts as in the case of the Bridge Hotel (Amstel, near Magere Brug), where I had stayed on a previous visit. However, Leidseplein is just a 5-minute stroll away. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh and Stedelijk Museum are all reachable within 15 minutes by foot.

Altogether not a bad choice (especially for museum visits) but it does feel a bit like Economy Class - for a price (140 Euros) that is typical of many European capital cities but not exactly cheap, either.

When we booked for this hotel it was completely new, which is always a risk. When we arrived to AMS, the taxi driver didn´t know where the hotel was so he used the GPS to drive us.

From the outside we saw a nice and clean corner where many locals walk by, when we entered we got a very warm welcome from the hotel manager. The room had a street view, we loved it, and the space was enough for 2 people (bigger than standard European rooms). The style is modern and abstract. But most important is that all the hotel facilities are new including carpets, bathroom, etc...

We had breakfast included and the variety was very good: obviously coffee (latte, espresso, regular) natural juices, cheeses, delicious breads, meat products (ham, sausages,etc),homemade jams and conserves, fruit and even different egg styles...

You can rent a bike right next to the hotel and drive all around Amsterdam.... even if the Leidsestraat is just 5 min walking

If we ever go back to AMS we´ll stay at the same place.

The hotel is very clean, next to a tram stop, very close to Ledsplein, Van Gogh Museum and some nice food restaurants. The rooms are clean, modern, free coffee at the hotel!, nice breakfast. Rooms are small, i went with my parents and they thought the room was very small but for me it was ok, if u travel with friends i think the size would not matter but if you are traveling with your parents maybe you should choose a bigger room in the hotel.

I'm very glad we choose this hotel, clean and very modern (seen the date on the lift saying 2011). The rooms are basic and have a very comfy bed. We stayed in room 204, it was facing the back and very quiet as we asked for. The breakfast had a good selection of foods consisting of breads, omelette and bacon. Very good coffee, expresso machine and tea, which you can take for free anytime. If you are not having breakfast, there is a place on the right from the hotel called Next Friday has very good breakfasts and lunches and threre are pletty of other places. I recommend Kartika, just across the road for very good Indonesian food, especially the rice table. Hotel is just walking distance from Van Gogh and Rijks. You can get the tram or bike, remember to look carefully for bikes when walking. We didn't take a bike, costs around 15 euro a day. The marqt is very good for buying food.

Room Tip: Get the highest room possible, not facing the road.

If you have a luggage and would like to travel from Schiphol airport to Hotel Espresso by taxi, it will cost you Eur 36-38. I arrived in the morning but the lady at the reception was so kind to check me in immediately without waiting until 3 p.m. There is an espresso machine in the lobby so you can enjoy your complimentary espresso any time while checking your E-Mails, posting on Facebook using free Wi-Fi and watching Amsterdamers driving bikes on special lines on sidewalks.
You can have slices of sausages, cheese and omelette for breakfast. Omelette which I tried was so-so.
The hotel room was modern and clean.
Rijks Museum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijks Museum are withing walking distance from the hotel. The ticket you buy at Rijks Museum for Eur 15 is valid for one year, so yo can visit this museum each day of your stay or on your next trip to Amsterdam.
There is "I amsterdam" sign on the street on front of Rijks Museum when visitors prefer to make photos.
There is Vondelpark near the Hotel Espresso where you can have a walk.

I am very pleased to say my friends and I had a fantastic time in Amsterdam. The hotel we stayed in defiantly made out trip. (There is nothing worse than a bad hotel)The hotel was very clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly and always there to help if needed.At night the main doors are locked and there is always someone manning the reception desk. There was free tea and coffee day and night you just help yourself.We were very pleased we found this gem of a hotel.The hotel is very central to most of the tourist parts of the city. It was a 15 min walk to Dam square. But the option of taking a tram, taxi or even ride a bike were always available. I would recommend hiring bikes for the day. That was very fun

Room Tip: We stayed in room 109 we could hear the noise of the trafic (it didnt bother us) but if you are sens...
