Great Time!

We loved the hotel! The location was great and the staff were all very friendly. The entire bathroom got wet whenever we took a shower, which was a little weird. There is a really good restaurant at the hotel and so much to do in the city. Can't wait to return!

Birthday treat

Room was cold and no where to regulate heat, no carpet. Loud music from below with view to the opposite wall. Double bed dipped in the middle but clean. Perfect location to walk from station and to explore.

De Roode Leeuw

The staff are fantastic. The room was small (what does one expect in an old building), but everything you would need was there and functioning. My only gripe was the twin beds. It was my fault I would think, because I left it until the the last minute to book. Dam Square is right around the corner. You won't get a better location in Amsterdam. I'd stay there again without hesitation. If you want to see all of the sites, you'll save money by purchasing all of the the tickets in a block.

Bathroom very bad

The bathroom in the room is very small and very inconvenient. The commode is so close to the wall that one cannot sit on the toilet. You have to sit at an angle. The shower stall is very small. Even worse, there is no door or curtain on the shower stall. So you cannot take shower without getting the whole bathroom floor wet. If bathroom problems are fixed, hotel can get up to 3 stars or may be even 4. At present, it deserves no higher than a 2 star rating.

Perfect hotel if you don't plan on being in your room much

This was a very different hotel from my last stay in Amsterdam, when I was a few miles out in the museum district. Instead, you are right in the thick of things, next to the red light district, Madame Toussands, the Palais, which is great if you immediately want to walk or jump on the tram anywhere, but not so great if you are going to be in your room at all. It is extremely busy, and the rooms were tiny. It seemed overpriced to me, but maybe that's due to the location. The staff were extremely nice to us, but there wasn't much in terms of amenities, just a very tiny room which was 90% bed, a 'view' of a 3 ft. alley and then another brick wall, and loud pulsating music throughout the day and evening.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Really close walking to just about anywhere, only 20 minute walk to the train station (5 minute if there were less pedestrian traffic).

Lovely facilities but breakfast would have been good

The facilitis within the room were wonderful (they even had an alarm which doubled as an ipod/iphone charger). The beds were comfortable although the matress was prone to moving and sliding off the bed during the night. The bathroom facilities were good and the shower was lovely, warm and powerful. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The location was very central with all amentities close by. We could have done with some more tea,coffee and creamer in the room and for the price, I would have expected breakfast to have been included.
