    Perfect location

    This is one of my favorite places to stay when I am in Amsterdam because it is perfectly located on the Dam, within very easy walking distance from the Central Station, and quite convenient to everything. Attentive staff; free wifi.

    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.

    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!

    worth it

    Great place from which to explore Amsterdam. Right off Dam Square. Tram stops right in front of the hotel and train station (to and from the airport) is a 5 minute walk. This place is safe, clean and quiet. Friendly staff. Rooms are pretty small with nothing special in terms of amenities, although the bathrooms are quite nice. Free wi-fi. Good lodging at a fair price...I'd recommend it.

    Amazing Location, Comfortable Hotel

    [...].The hotel is centrally located, right next to Amsterdam's most famous square (Dam Square). Also, just two blocks from the Red Light District, the shopping strip, and many restaurants. Walking distance to anywhere in the city. 10-minute walk to the train station. The beds were very comfortable. The room had two large windows that opened. Safe in the room. Clean and safe surroundings.

    De Roode Leeue Amsterdam

    (+) Very good location---10 minutes walk to Central Station. Just in the corner of Dam square. (-) I booked a non-smoking room, however, they made me spent the first night in a smoking-room---The smell inside the room was really-really bad, I couldn't sleep. I went to the front desk and asked to move me into a different room. He said that it was the only room available that night. They moved me to another room for night 2 & 3. I had breakfast on my first day. I found it expensive and not worthy (there were flies in the room!). Had I to be back in Amsterdam, I wouldn't stay there again. I came to Ammsterdam to participate in a large conference. A friend of mine booked a room in a large hotel with a Polish name, which was just in front of mine. Excellent place. I had breakfast there on day 2 and 3 and enjoy their tea time.

    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.

    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!
