Perfect spot for the active traveler

Located about a 7 minute tram ride from the train station. They upgraded me to a suite. I'm not sure why, but I couldn't complain. Everything was modern and clean. The bed was comfortable. The TV gave you the choice to watch in several language, including English. There's a great outdoor square right around the corner, where I enjoyed a nice steak and a Pint. Great Indonesian restaurant called Indrapura just down the street. Great Rijstoffel.

Good location, Lacks AC and other amenities

The location is good, close to Rembrantplein, not a far walk from Central Station or Museumplein. It is hard with a 2pm or later check in coming from the US, flights land early morning. The room had no AC! and the room felt like it was in the 90s, really hard to sleep. The room was smaller than many New York City and other European hotel rooms I have stayed in. The water pressure was not great and the bathroom was very dark. I would not recommend the hotel, there are a ton of hotels in Amsterdam, there has to be something better out there.

Friendly and Central

I was only staying overnight. The room was spotless and comfortable although small and a bit hot, had to take the fan out.

albus so so hotel

The hotel was average. Walls needed painting and the carpet was old and dirty. Charged an additional city fee upon checking out. Recieved an email from cheap tickets after i booked and paid with orbitz for the same hotel for $38 dollars less a night.
