Not bad at all

My only hesitation about this hotel was its location, far from the downtown area, although near the Rijkmuseum and Vondelpark. However, tram number 1 is a perfect solution. The hotel is quaint, with rooms in individual mansions across the hotel entrance, all with high ceilings, each with its own personality. My room even had a fireplace (not in use). In winter I think this hotel would be very cozy. I liked it.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel is near important shopping districts, the Rijkmuseum and Vondelpark, but far away from the downtown area. Trolley number 1 solves this problem. It runs three times within the hour for 2.80 €.

More like a motel

To be used only as a last resource solution. Not to take your family or loved one.

Great location great price great service

This hotel is in a great, quiet neighborhood in the historic part of Amsterdam (next to Vondel Park and near the main museums) and only a few minutes walk from active nightlife. My room and bed were generously sized, comfortable and quiet and although the bathroom was small (as in most European hotels) it included everything necessary. The garden is gorgeous and the staff are very friendly. I did not eat the hotel breakfast (like many European hotels the breakfast was quite pricey) but the staff steered me towards an excellent local coffee shop. I would definitely stay there again.

The train and tram system in Amsterdam are an excellent way to get to and from the airport and around the city for much less money than a taxi.
