We were pleasantly surprised by the standards of the rooms. they have walk in showers and very modern equipment with a large flat screen TV on the wall. The hotel staff are very helpful and make your stay in Amsterdam very enjoyable. We thought it was excellent value for money and well positioned to see the sights and to eat.

We arrived very early, about 9:30am

We arrived very early, about 9:30am after a long flight from Kuala Lumpur, and were allowed to our room straight away. Normally we would have to wait till 2pm. It was so kind of the reception staff to do so. A hot shower was there to wake us up to enjoy a very cold but always exciting day in Amsterdam. The hotel is close to the Museum Plein, with all the famous museums and close to the tram which takes you to all other attractions of Amsterdam. The staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Thanks to their advice we had a very nice evening in the nearby Bar Helmer. Local meeting point. We enjoyed our stay in this quiet hotel and will be back again.

It's a simple hotel with a very good location, in the heart of Amsterdam. But the service is poor. There is only one towel per person in each room. Despite the lift, there are a lot of stairs to overcome. Some rooms are located in the basement floor and the only things that you can see through the small windows are the wheels of the cars parked on street.

Weekend

Dark, poorly lit room half in the basement that needed a space heater to avoid freezing. Unspecified possible shower gel in wall dispenser instead of separate shampoo. One of the worst breakfasts possible for 10 euros. should be classified a 2 star hotel. for a 2 star it would rate " ok". They also charged an extra 10 euros on top of this site but this was not specified in this travel site. On plus side the room was clean. Easy walk to museums.

Threadbare hotel in good location

The facility is run down and my room had a broken toilet seat and a light that didn't work. The weather was warm and there was no air conditioning so staff braced my window open at street level which made me uncomfortable. The location is great and the staff were competent. I'd stay there again if the price was adjusted downward. Other hotels in the same price range nearby were in better shape. I stayed in two others.

Not a hotel!!

This place is hard to describe as an hotel, it is more like a hostel. Downstairs was very much posh looking and well kept. Upstairs were the rooms were located is a totally different matter. Not much care was taken to lighting which was very dull considering how steep the many stairs were. Our room we requested two singles got a double instead! T.V didn't work, the bathroom had mould and smelt musty, toilet seat was coming off had to be careful sitting on it. The walls in the bedroom were dirty and needed a good clean. The wardrobe was the tiniest thing I have ever seen, the cabin luggage we took wasn't able to fit in! no safe to keep valuables in, nothing to make a hot drink, or for that matter no cups or glasses were in the room when we wanted to drink some water. I wouldn't go back here and wouldn't recommend it at all. In terms of the area the place was located in, this was very convenient for seeing most of the area within centraal and Dam sq. Also, because it is located down a quietish street, it was good coming back late without worrying about road noise.
