HORRIBLE

The only thing going for this hotel is the location and cleanliness. The location is prime! Vondelpark is right to the left of the main entrance (if walking out of the hotel). The trams 2 & 5 are to the left and take you to the city center, Leidseplein, etc. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. However, I don't think it was worth it. There are other hotels with equally prime locations and cleanliness that I suggest you all book first. There are no microwaves, refrigerators, irons or ironing boards, etc. The breakfast was mediocre. They advertise a hotel shuttle, but I called from the airport and learned they don't pick up from the airport, they only arrange a taxi to take people from the hotel to the airport, which is not my idea of a shuttle. From the very beginning, the staff was rude. Let me explain. There was no printer and only one computer for all guests to use. Since there was no printer, the hotel's policy was to print items for guests from behind the reception desk. I asked them to print my vouchers for my tours and they complained about the number of tours and the number of pages. I asked if there was a page limit that I exceeded and they replied in the negative, but still complained as though it was a burden. (Not to mention the Internet connection was horrible throughout the hotel, including when using the one public computer.) You do not have to believe my review or give it much weight. You may have a different experience, but is it worth the risk? I say no. Just find another hotel that is equally situated and be secure in knowing you will not face my situation during a time that is supposed to be relaxing for you.

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...

Central Shelter

Nice enough place, basics are right, shower nice and hot, fairly recently modernized comared to the rest of the hotel. Not very near to the Red light district or any coffee shops which is a little inconvenient.

Excellent!!

The hotel was located about a ten minute walk from restaurants, shops, museums ect. The staff was very helpful & friendly. I had a single room. It was small & the floors were a bit creaky. Overall, it was very clean and had a safe. They serve free breakfast which was delicious. Best of all free internet service. Don't expect to use a calling card- 01800 numbers are blocked. I was pleasantly delighted.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You can take the train from Schipol to Central Station and take TRAM 2 right outside the Station. That drops you off about 5 minutes away from the hotel. 4 Euros for train ticket/ 2 Euros for tram ticket
