Love this concept!

We loved the "all-inclusive" concept and hope it will catch on with other hotels in this chain. We met so many people staying at the hotel since the open bar and snacks brought people to socialize and linger in the "living room" area. The staff was fantastic, the breakfast was delicious, the room was large and comfortable, and the hotel is centrally located. Slightly more expensive than other hotels but the extras and the comfortable atmosphere more than made up for it!

A Dutch treat

The all-inclusive feature (breakfast, snacks, drinks) of this hotel made it a splurge, but it really enhanced our stay. Central sights were all within a reasonable walk and the staff was friendly and more than willing to assist with suggestions, directions, dinner reservations, etc.

Nice Hotel

The hotel was very nice and clean, free breakfast in the morning was very fresh. I only wish the front doors were not locked after dark or someone was constantly at the front desk to open them. The location was great as well.

Fantastic hotel - what a find!

Great hotel in a convenient location - easy for tram stops to take you wherever you need to go in the city. Complimentary drinks and snacks were a great feature - perfect for a nightcap. Have stayed in many hotels in Amsterdam and would definitely stay here again.

Good location, friendly staff. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Managed to get our room ready ahead of check in time since we had quite an early arrival.
