Great Location Quiet near Museums

The rooms are tiny, the beds smaller than twin. But it is quiet yet right in the middle of things... See full review

Great hotel

We basically toured Amsterdam and its enrirons. The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgable answering all of our questions. They have internet (my daughter needed that). The breakfast was consistently delicious; enjoyed it. Hotel and rooms were very clean. Room was not large, but very comfortable and nice. Location was great near everything; transportation and shopping, especially Vondelpark. Enjoy.

Great Location Quiet near Museums

The rooms are tiny, the beds smaller than twin. But it is quiet yet right in the middle of things and the price is right. The breakfast was OK for 10 Euros, but good they had it as nothing opened till 8 or 9 and the hotel breakfast started at 7. Right off the tram / streetcar line 3 or 5.

For the good dining, you have to go downtown near the Red Light District which is a pretty far walk but worth it.

I would check out someplace else...

The hot water in the building does not consistently work and some of your showers might be a little cold. The housekeeping staff walked into the room without knocking twice in my 8 night stay. The breakfast was so overcrowded and the staff was unpleasant. Wonderful location. Located near a beautiful park as well as several museums. The tram service is excellent to the central part of the city.

Terrible

I will never stay at this hotel again !!!! If you looking to get sleep then this is not the hotel for you. Breakfast is average but location is great away from the busy streets and close to the museums. I do not recommend this hotel...
