    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.

    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.

    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.

    great location

    Hotel location is central for getting around. Generally warm and clean room with a great bathroom. Down side is the 'hotel rules', we were told off when we walked into the hotel eating an ice cream! The male receptionist was quite brusk.

    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!

    extremelly convenient

    This was a very positive experience. The location is unbeatable - close to everything in Amsterdam. You can walk to the hotel from the Central Station. It takes 10-15 min so you don't depend on public transportation and don't need a taxi to get from and to the airport. Once you are there you are within 5 min walking distance to restaurants, shopping, boat tours, and Red Lights district. There is also a tram station right in front of the hotel if you need to get to the museums. We spent a lot of time hanging out in the Dam square, which is just 50 meters away from the hotel. There is always something going on there. We had a good view of the square from our room and we could watch people and street performers from the window. The staff was very friendly. We arrived at 10 AM and our room was ready even though the check in time is normally at 3 pm. The room was clean, just a little old. The bathroom was nicely remodeled, although a little small. The internet is not included in the price, which is a minus. I was a little worried before we went that it would be noisy, being so close to the city center and the tram line. But the windows are sound-proof and it was reasonably quiet especially during the night. Overall we were very pleased and would choose the hotel again without hesitation.

    Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

    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!
