Can't go wrong

Very nice stay! Had no problems at all, great rooms at great prices in a good location. Friendly and helpfull staff . Only thing is that my room didn't have a full length mirror because the 2nd extra bed was in front the wardrobe with mirror inside so had to keep moving my bed. I would stay again

Quiet, restful location and good value.

We liked the location. We were able to access it from Schipol airport by train and a short cab ride from the train station to the hotel. It was a 10 min walk to the tram which took us into the hub bub of Amsterdam. Some may not like using the tram to get back to their hotel after a day of sightseeing but we appreciated the quiet after a busy day. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Great way to get acquainted and oriented with the sights of Amsterdam is to take the "hop-on hop-off" canal cruise. Fun and relaxing.

Nothing special, just pretty nice Hotel

The location was just a few blocks from the train station which worked out perfect for me. There is also a Metro Stop just outside. The lobby is great and has some cool fountains. There is also internet available downstairs. They said WiFi only works downstairs but I had no problem using it in my room on the second floor. The rooms are small, but the bathrooms have a huge tub, but no shower. The only thing I didn't like is that our "window" opened up to a little alcove next to another rooms window. Other than that it was a good stay for a good price.

If you're in Brussels you can't miss the Atomium. You can miss the EuroPark nearby, highly overrated.
