No wifi, 1 person room but two beds

No wifi but it was promised. 1 person sized room but two beds. The courtesy of the hotel staff improved but we found them 'stand-off-ish' and hostile at check-in. I didn't want to say anything to my friend about it in-case he thought I was nuts, but he actually commented on the hostile welcome after we reached our room. All in all amazing location, room comfort low, staff could have been better, value - pretty OK, but really annoying that they had no working wifi connection as I brought laptop and ipad with plans to keep incommunicado with the world, only to find out that that wasn't possible.

Boys weekend/ Exhibition

Probably what you would expect, although I don't think it quite rates 4 stars., Perhaps a top 3 star. Thats comparing it to UK hotels of similar gradings. Staff very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Room cleanliness excellent,but fairly standard furnishing wise. In fairness to the hotel they are carrying out rennovations to rooms so this might change.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Amsterdam isn't cheap. Its worth having a good look around. Cafes do excellent breakfasts for less than half the price of the Hotel. Hard Rock Cafe highly recommended. Hans Brinker Hostel interesting,

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!

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 place to stay

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.
