    De Roode Leeuw Hotel Amsterdam

    De Roode Leeuw Hotel in Amsterdam is in the very heart of Amsterdam. If you want to feel the pulse of the city this is the place to stay. A few blocks from Centraal Station you can walk and explore while you make your way to the hotel. My husband and I thought the hotel staff was very knowledgable, courteous.and friendly. We loved our vacation, museums were in walking distance and many restaurants to choose from. If you want to feel safe and invited in Amsterdam stay at this hotel and just like choosing a home remember these three words location, location,vacation!

    Amazing Location, Comfortable Hotel

    [...].The hotel is centrally located, right next to Amsterdam's most famous square (Dam Square). Also, just two blocks from the Red Light District, the shopping strip, and many restaurants. Walking distance to anywhere in the city. 10-minute walk to the train station. The beds were very comfortable. The room had two large windows that opened. Safe in the room. Clean and safe surroundings.

    worth it

    Great place from which to explore Amsterdam. Right off Dam Square. Tram stops right in front of the hotel and train station (to and from the airport) is a 5 minute walk. This place is safe, clean and quiet. Friendly staff. Rooms are pretty small with nothing special in terms of amenities, although the bathrooms are quite nice. Free wi-fi. Good lodging at a fair price...I'd recommend it.

    Perfect location

    Perfect location right at Dam square and definitely close to everything. Could walk to all the important places one should see while in Amsterdam. Room was small but enough as you are out most of the time. Bathroom was very large and modern. Staff were always friendly and when I needed help went out of their way to assist. I would stay there again.

    Defines Awsome

    Staff was really cool. Look out you window, to the left you see the central train station, and to the right there's. The Dam square. So easy to find after a hard night of drinking. Tip: freaks come out at night, most are just beggers but just stay alret around them and watch your back.

    Location...

    Terrific location right on Damrak Street in the center of city. Saved big by taking the train directly from Schipol Airport since the hotel is only short walk from Central Train Station. So much to see.... musts are a 'Canal Cruise', Anne Frank House, the many Museums, Vondelpark, the beautiful and picturesque Jordan district and the infamous and very interesting Red Light District. If you like to "people watch", there were many 'street performers' and interesting people to keep anyone fascinated! But watch out for the bicycles and bike paths.. the locals do get mad if you walk or block them and be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as most of the streets and walkways are cobblestone. If walking is not for you, there are numerous trams to virtually every destination worth seeing. On one day, we took a full-day bus tour that stopped at a small cheese making farm that showed how Gouda cheese was made, we visited windsmills, fishing villages, a small clog making store where you witnessed them making the wooden shoes, a Delft ceramic store where they described the process of how Deftware is made, a trip to The Hague and an stop at Mauradam. If you do leave the Amsterdam area be sure to visit the 'miniature city' of Mauradam, where every one of the exhibits in the 'city' is exactly 1/25th of it's actual size. It was quite impressive! Amsterdam is really a very picturesque city. Whether it's just going to the coffee shops, sitting at an outdoor cafe or just taking in the sights of the city, the 100 canals and 1,000 bridges that encompass the this old and historic city make it must destination for any traveler.

    Hotel Amsterdam

    I loved the location of Hotel Amsterdam. It is right in the middle of EVERYTHING. The staff was friendly, helpful, quick, and very knowledgeable about the city. The rooms were small, however, most rooms in Europe are small. We did not stay in the hotel very much and there were only two of us. It worked well for us. We did not mind the small as we have been in smaller rooms in other European cities. Safety is a key for me and here it worked well. Lots of eating places (fast food and restaurant) within 5 minute walk. Excellent food on buffet for breakfast. It is a ten minute walk to Central Station and water transportation. Ground transportation has a trolley stop at the hotel front. Trolleys were easy to use and maps from the hotel worked well for us along with instructions from the helpful staff. I just can not say enough good things about the location, food, hospitality and safety. People in Amsterdam were more than willing to help us find were we needed to go on the trolley. I would not hesitate to book there again the next time we are in Amsterdam.

    Time-saving tip: In Hotel

    Buy your Ann Frank House tickets ahead of time and other museums because the lines are long (or were for us). The hotel sells them right there at the counter along with free discount coupons for several things in Amsterdam.
