“The best tiny hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Last June, I stayed at the hotel for 4 days as the beginning of my European summer holiday with my family. I stayed at room #9, sadly it took me to bring 4 luggage using the stairs, but inside the room is very worthy. 2 beds and a nice little bathroom. The free wi-fi is incredibly fast and i enjoyed using it. The location of hotel is also very strategic because it is near with some great restaurants and interesting spots. Don't doubt yourself or anyone to go and stay in this hotel because it was an incredible experience to enjoy Amsterdam from the hotel.

Room Tip: Room #9 is the best

Stayed here for 2 nights in a group of 10 girls for a hen weekend, all of our rooms were designed in slightly different ways but all really quirky and stylish. The rooms aren’t huge but they’re big enough, very comfy beds and pillows and nice big powerful shower and clean bathroom. Even on a 2 night stay our rooms were cleaned & fresh towels provided.

There isn’t a reception just a ‘cupboard’ with the computer/paperwork in, and the staff arrive to the hotel for check in/check out times. They do leave a number to call if you need anything & there’s a buzzer on the door in case of any problems too, we managed to get in touch with the staff easily each time we needed to. The hotel is located in a lovely area full of cafés and shops, a 10 minute walk into Rembrandt Square (so far enough away for it to be quiet). The only negative I’d say is the stairs are extremely narrow & steep, so it was tiring for the girls in the rooms on the top floors (if you’re elderly or have mobility problems definitely avoid this hotel or ask for a guaranteed ground or second floor room).

Room Tip: Stairs are very narrow & steep (no lifts), so ask for ground or second floor rooms if you have m...

We stayed 2 nights at the Dwars in the loft room ie top floors. The Dwars has 9 rooms and this was on the top floor, narrow staircase makes it a challenge for some. But the staff was very helpful, even taking our luggage up the 4 floors. This building was a youth hostel, very nicely renovated to a boutique inn. There is a tram stop 50m from the front door, so getting around is very easy.

The room was actually the whole top floor - two rooms and a bathroom. Quaint, quiet, comfortable, trendy - a very nice place. There are plenty of restaurants, cafés, bakeries, grocers nearby. This was our first visit to Amsterdam and we were very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: if narrow stairs are not an issue, the loft is wonderful. If stairs are an issue,then asked for low...

Myself and a group of friends took our first trip to Amsterdam and stayed in this hotel recently. It is a great place to stay, the rooms are modern, clean and decorated beautifully. Could not have asked for more. Pleasant staff, great location and worth every penny paid! Cannot complain at all!

Spent a weekend here and absolutely loved our room! Felt brand new, very stylish, clean and comfortable bed! Close to all attractions but not noisy, we felt very safe in the area. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

The hotel is new and located in the most convenient location in Amsterdam city center. It is very close to the tramp stop and other attractions as well. The rooms are small but for us, it didnt matter because we just used the hotel to sleep and most of the time, we were touring around the city.

First stay at hotel. Three bed room was perfect for me and 2 daughters. I loved the decor and they loved the free wifi. Lack of restaurant wasn't a problem as so many great places to eat nearby. Location was great we walked everywhere. Great value
