“Surprised with overly positive reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Lets start with the positives. Very clean bathroom with a good, powerful shower. That's pretty much about it. All downhill from here. Location is ok. Five minute walk from Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum and Leidseplein.
The price makes this review average, any more and it would be poor.
The price is economical but some standard aspects of cleanliness should still be expected. The room was very dusty and bed linen wasn't replaced during our three night stay. I couldn't say 100% it had been replaced since the last occupant!
Can't comment on staff friendliness as there was limited interaction.
I would recommend spending an additional £20 per night and getting somewhere further into the canal complex.

We were pleasantly surprised by the small independently owned (we believe) hotel! Our room was clean, comfortable and it had a great little (Julliette) balcony with a side view of the canal. We loved the front desk's recommendation of "Ciro...Passami L'olio!" the Italian restaurant across the street, so much that we ate there twice! The air conditioner worked great and we even had accessable windows for fresh air! The bed was comfortable but most important was how clean the bathroom and shower were! Though some reviews state it is located far from the "hub" however, it is an easy walk to popular sites!

These happy Floridian's will be back!

Room Tip: Make sure to book the balcony room in advance because they are most popular!

Situated 5 minutes from several tram stops, convenient for getting around. Tram to Dam Square takes about 10 mins.

Several of the popular museums are within walking distance.

Good choice of bars not too far away and lots of Argentinian Steak Houses to choose from.

Room clean, shower powerful enough and good variation at breakfast.

Staff are really nice and helpful.

Wouldn't hesitate in re-booking or recommending to friends.

After reading reviews about the hotel I booked through Expedia for a 2 night stay. I decided to book a deluxe double after hearing that standard double rooms were slightly small. The room was very big and had a balcony and lovely ensuite with a large shower cubicle.

Through the booking we had breakfast included, which was a great start to a day of exploring! It was the usual breads, croissants, cheese, ham, eggs, cereal, fruit and yoghurt and we could eat as much as we liked.

The staff were more than helpful in directing us to places we should visit and were very apologetic when the room wasn't ready to check-in until 40 minutes after we were told it would be ready.

The location of the hotel was perfect for us. We personally didn't feel the need to use public transport as everywhere was walkable.

I'd definately recommend staying in this hotel.

Very sleek, modern, and comfortable rooms. Yes, they are rather small, but you must consider that Europeans are generally smaller than our American behinds and are much more efficient as using up space. The air conditioning units at Hotel D'Amsterdam were a godsend during the summer months and all of the electronic devices worked quite well. The Wi-Fi was excellent and the service was helpful and friendly.

This hotel is a mere 3 blocks from an excellent bicycle rental shop, which I recommend to get around town.

Room Tip: Ask for Room # 8...unless I'm there!

A smart choice 3 stars hotel. Far enough form the center to be super quiet and let us have a nice night sleep and but at the same time 5 min walk close from the center. 5 min walk is enought to be near Liedseplein and from there, thaking the Liedsestraat we can go everywhere we want. It's close to Avis, Budget, it's 10 min walk close to Europcar and Hertz (Overtoom). It has a Lidl 2 min walk away and according to the reviews it's just in front on the best italian restaurants in Amesterdam. (we tried going there twice and couldn't get a table though).
It's very clean, every day they clean the room, Mr. Choi and his wife are very nice and always very keen on given all the information you need with the help of a map, or a bus schedule. Whatever information we needed they provided so, great.
I don't know about the breakfast. We decided to have breakfast out so, I don't know if it's worth the money.
Rooms are very small but are just right. I think when visiting a city what we just need is a place to rest and have a shower with some confort.
Shower water pressure could be better thought, but it also depended at what hour we had the shower - maybe too many people having showers at the same time(?)
From the hotel to Vondelpark it's about 5-10 min walk, very close.
If you what to go to Heineken Experience get out the hotel to Nassaukade and continue straight to Stadhouderskade for 10-15 min.
