    Amazing Trip

    My husband and I booked The Hotel Amsterdam for our week-long stay in Amsterdam. The hotel is very centrally located and is within walking distance of pretty much everything - the van Gogh museum, Anne Frank House, central train station, Allard Pierson museum, etc. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Anything we needed, was provided. For example, the code for the free internet stopped working. I went down to the desk, and they fixed the problem right away. They were ready with information, and were very personable. The room itself was perfect for our needs. Small by comparison to American hotel rooms, but very cozy. We also got a room right on the Dam square. We were able to people watch from the Juliet balcony.

    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!

    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.

    De Roode Leeuw

    Friendly staff and an absolutely superb view of Dam Square were the highlights of this hotel. This hotel is also in a very good location with access to many of the smaller neighborhoods such as Rembrandtplein. Smaller sized rooms but that is true nearly everywhere in Europe. Overall, I was very satisfied with this hotel and will stay again.

    A fun thing to do is to get out of the Red Light and walk to some of the smaller neighborhoods to get a better feel of Amsterdam and what it has to offer.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    2nd time at DRL

    This was my second stay at the hotel. I chose it for a second stay because it enjoyed the view from our balcony facing De Bijenkorf and Dam Square. It has three tram lines running in front, AND almost every tram line returns through the front of the hotel (Because its on Damrak leading up to Centraal Station). Very easy to get back to if you get lost on your first trip. Breakfast is amazing, in fact, the hotel has a Michelin Star. Front desk was helpful on last trip with biking directions to other cities. I loved the simple mini bar of Verkade chocolates and san pellegrino. I have recommended others to stay here many times.
