“old city Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We had one night in Amsterdam on our way back from Africa to US, so we picked a hotel with a good location. The Times Hotel turned out to be a big hit. While the rooms are not large, there was definitely enough space. The teenagers LOVED the room with the spiral staircase up to the loft. And I was happy to find the room actually had 1.5 bathrooms (not the 1 I had expected). The staff was really helpful & helped us get into the room early despite the fact that the people who had it the night before us left late (and reluctantly). And the location was fabulous. One downside was that the room is on the street & I was woken up one time in the night by a loud group walking by. The rest of the night was completely quiet.

This hotel conveys a differentiated offer, rooms are artsy with a floor to ceiling mural and large windows. The guy at the reception was very nice and helpful, this place is located very close to the Anne Frank museum. Breakfast was good. I would definitely recommend.

Staying at this hotel for the third year in a row, its on a canal, great area and very close to Dam square. Service it professional, personal, caring and accommodating as can be. Breakfast area overlooking the canal is a great way to start the day.

Since this will probably be our last visit to Amsterdam, I wanted to make sure we stayed on one of the canals. We asked for....we received....and we paid for a room with a canal view. It was on the top floor which was OK...but the canal view was not that wonderful. To see the canal, we had to stand right at the window...the canal could not be seen from anywhere else in the room. Since our room was on the top floor, the sloping ceiling (while picturesque) hampered the space in the room. One one side of the bed there was only 12 inches between the bed and the wall. The same was true at the end of the bed. The head of the bed was against the sloping wall/ceiling, and there was only about 18 inches from the 4th side of the bed and the storage cabinet. There wasn't really any room to put our 2 carry-on sized suitcases except on the minimal floor space. Moving around in this room was really difficult. One the flip side, the bathroom was decent sized and had a great shower. The lights were placed over the bathroom mirror badly....I couldn't really see well enough to shave. We felt the breakfast, although we did look at it, was overpriced and didn't eat here. The staff was helpful with all our questions...although we were not impressed by the company that provided the canal tour that we purchased through the hotel at a discounted price. All that being said, the location of this hotel is wonderful....about a 15--20 walk to/from the Centraal Station....and to most major attractions located in the city center. A tram line is just 2 blocks away so you can catch a tram to attractions that are farther away. BUT, the hotel is in a very quiet neighborhood...the best of both worlds....convenient..and quiet. If only the rooms were larger...

booked this for our xmas weekend break, was in a good location, 10 minutes walk to most places, rooms were a tad small but who cares when all you need is a bed to sleep in, and we found it quite cosy to be honest, would stay again for sure.

Nice little hotel with a walking distance of about 10-15 minutes to the most visited sites. Close to the Anne Frank house, all though we never went. About 10 minutes to Dam Square and 15 minutes to the Red Light District.

Room was quite small. I never stay in the hotel room during a vacation, but we found it clumsy to place our bags. Nice decoration of Van Gogh (I think) on the walls.

Powerful and nice shower with shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Clean and neat.


Breakfast was 10 euros per person per day, so we never tried it out. But I checked it out and it was not all that good. Some bread, ham/cheese and boiled eggs. Not worth 10 euros definitely.

Staff was very friendly and attentative, always helping us with what ever we needed. I would stay again. Nice little coffee shop next door if you are in to that.
