    exellent location, room ok.

    Exellent location and room was spacious with great shower water flow. Room/rug with bad smell even it was a non-smoking room. Water on the sink did not flow well and safe did not work. Problems were fixed only after 2 days!!!

    Excellent hotel on a nasty street.

    Our room was quite large and very comfortable. We were just one flight up and in the rear, so there was a lot of street noise during the day, but at night it was quiet after, say, eleven o'clock. Service was super, the front desk helped us with every request. There were only two negatives. First, the hotel is very centrally and conveniently located but the street it's on -- Damrak -- is noisy, dirty, crowded, and displays a lot of the worst of what Amsterdam has to offer. (Fortunately, in five minutes you can get to the areas that make Amsterdam otherwise so charming and beautiful.) Second, we needed to print out our boarding passes the day before our departure, and although my wife knew exactly how to do this, the clerk insisted on doing it herself -- without success. So then the clerk suggested that my wife use the hotel's "business center", where, she said, my wife could use the computer free if she was on the internet for ten minutes or less. She did just that. But when we checked out, we were charged 7.50 euros for use of the internet. When we objected, we were told that we had been misinformed the day before, that there was always a charge for use of the internet. A minor complaint, but still a bit annoying. One other thing. I left an item of clothing in the room (only the second time I've done this in 72 years) and when I called the hotel to have it sent on (to Sweden, not across the Atlantic), the hotel insisted on a credit card number in order to charge me. I suppose that's not unfair -- and I'm grateful they were willing to take the trouble -- but considering what we paid for the room, and the minimal cost to the hotel, it struck me as a bit petty. On the whole, I'd have to say De Roode Leeuw is an excellent hotel -- comfortable, clean, spacious, air conditioned, and friendly.

    Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

    The world-famous Concertgebouw gives 900 concerts per year in its various venues. Mostly classical (of the highest quality) but some popular music as well. Getting there is easy -- a ten-minute tram ride. And the cost of the tram is included in the ticket, as is the cost of a drink (wine, beer, coffee, tea) before the concert and at each intermission. So for 39 euros each, we got transportation, three drinks each, and a splendid performance of Bach's cello suites by a world-class cellist. A terrific evening at a bargain price.

    Great Location and Comfortable Room

    We loved this hotel! It was surprisingly quiet and cozy for such a busy location. Our room was very comfortable - small when compared with American hotel rooms, but plenty of room for us. Bed was exceedingly comfortable.

    Head over to Gravenstraat to a tiny gem of a pub called Cafe Belgique. You'll notice it by the little gnome sign that says "La Chouffe." Get there early because the place fills up fast!

    Very Small room

    Hotel rooms very small with a view across the alley to the hotel next door. We had a smoking room but it was not very clean or fresh. Maybe the non-smoking rooms are nicer. Nice location.

    great place to stay

    Great location to be in Amsterdam. Staff was very courteous and friendly. Room itself was not new, but very clean. The bathroom appeared newly remodeled and was very clean. Will stay again without hesitation.
