    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!

    Good Hotel, Great Location, Excellent Pr

    The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are recently renovated and very clean, but a bit small for 2 people. The location was fabulous. Lots of places to walk to and an easy tram ride to the museums. Many restaurants, cafes and coffeeshops within easy walking distance. Good shopping!

    The hotel is located in an excellent location. The staff was super friendly, but the 4-star category is questionable for this hotel. My wife and I didn' think it was very clean and that was a turn off.

    Hunter's Bar is only a few blocks away and has some of the best prices around. Pitcher of Heineken for only 10 Euro and there are always football matches playing on the television. Smoker friendly, though no tobacco. Also, free wifi.

    Hotel Amsterdam, as advertised.

    I stayed six nights and The Hotel Amsterdam was exactly what I was looking for. My room was cleaned every day, no matter how late I sleep in. Great location, within walking distance of almost everything I wanted to see. Far enough way away from the Red Light District that you feel safe walking around to the nearby shops, restaurants and bars after dark. If something was too far to walk to, then Amsterdam's system of trams will get you there. One line stops in front of hotel, and another just one block over, with Central Station just down the street. The hotel staffs were a great asset, for directions and even the cost of what the trams would be. I could not have been any happier with this hotel. By the way, I did eat in the hotel restaurant and it was also great. My stay was just great, great, great.

    Hotem Amsterdam DE Roode Leeuw

    It's a very nice place in the center of town withing easy walking distance of the train station. My single room was TINY but servicable but the staff at the front desk was very helpful in assisting me to find my way around the city. For the price I paid, I think that some kind of breakfast should be included. Also, internet is $7.50 Euros an hour in the business center and that is clearly out of line.

    There is a place called "Fruiteria" just around the corner that makes great fresh squeezed fruit drinks and crepes that make a healthy way to start your day.

    A nice hotel

    The rooms were very small, unless you pay for the superior room. I actualy stayed here twice in the last two weeks, each for four days or so. The location is what you are paying for. Breakfast at the hotel is unremarkable, and can be a long wait for coffee. The walls were paper-thin, though, and it wasn't really four-star quiet at night, even within the hotel. Unfortunately, the staff are very hit-and-miss. Some treated me very well, even remembering my name, while others clearly wished they were somewhere else. Room service was very good, and fast. The hotel has an old, slow elevator, if the stairs look daunting. I would stay here again in low season when the rates have dropped way down, but it was never worth more than 150 Euros for a night.

    Great Location, Inadequate staff

    The location of this hotel was great. The staff on the other hand wasn't very friendly and were barely adequate at their jobs. They doubled booked my room so some strange man barged in. They had no idea how to deal with this nor did they understand why I was so upset by this. The staff also didn't seem to know the area very well when I asked questions about where to go eat. Internet was also very expensive at this hotel
