Overall Good Experience

Would recommend Mon, Dec 24, 2012
Overall Good Experience. Bottom line: Best for mid-range travelers who want to stay in Amsterdam. The hotel itself is good overall but average in terms of building/room quality and furnishings. It is a good value and economical considering location and very easy access to transportation. The good aspects: - Very good location. Tram to downtown, ATM, and places to eat all within 50 M - 100 M of the hotel. Good, safe neighborhood - Bed/Linens were clean and comfortable - Staff friendly and professional, quick to solve problems/answer questions. Bad aspects: - I would say worst aspect was the heating system, room was not cold but not particularly warm. Was difficult to take a shower and not get cold when we went during winter. - Room/carpet/bathroom slightly a bit old and worn, but is still acceptable and clean.

Dining

Italian Cafe/Restaurant Sapori del Mondo less than 2 blocks away. Ending up nearly eating every meal there. Outstanding food quality and unbeatable prices.

It' a nice hotel for a short stay.

Would recommend Fri, Jul 6, 2012
It was nice hotel with nice room, except that you don't get WI FI in your room only in the reception. And I was staying in a room with 4 bedrooms alone.

Shopping hint

The hotel is 15 min walking to centrum, also very near to a tram and bus station.

Family trip - not really a family friendly hotel

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 2, 2012
Only good thing was location. Quiet but central. Hotel rooms small and dust present and dirty carpets. No room service for a room worth £170 per night Too expensive for no significant service Reception small and not comfortable. Reception team overall satisfactory - got phone charger when did not have working adaptor. We went as two families together and rooms given to us on different floors and reception manager claiming he did not know that we were together!! Airport transfer £14 per person! Overall I will only recommend if you get room at £120 or less and only want good location. Also very nice coffee shop just next to hotel. Definitely highlight of the trip was breakfast and coffee in the coffe shop.

Dining

Coffee shop excellent just 20 m from hotel

Loved it here....just go :)

Would recommend Mon, Feb 21, 2011
Best location in all of Amsterdam, one minute tram journey on trams 9 or 14. You could easily walk but we didn't because it was a bit cold in February. Little tip, there are only certain doors you can get on trams...I learnt from experience on my first day I hoped on the tram threw the wrong door and the door shut straight behind me with my boyfriend stuck on the outside. The tram took off and we were separated...nearly died. trams stop quite often though so we did find each other ok. Second tip...get a Map in the hotel, there brilliant. If your going to Amsterdam, stay in this hotel. Are hotel room was lovely, room 203, was shocked at how big it was cause I read the reviews. The room was big. We had 2 single beds pushed together, which where very clean and comfy. The rooms where tidied and cleaned everyday. The bathroom was so clean and big. There was a hairdryer, shampoo and body gel, a big mirror which suited me and 3 towels. The negatives are, are Tv didn't work and the front stairs carpet could be replaced. There is a bakery down the street which is soooo good. The woman made us ham salad sandwiches(where where in huge bread roll type things)which were class. The were so fresh mmm yummy and cheap to, only 3.50 euro. In my favourite bakery up the main eating street just off Dam square which is amazing also but they charged 6 euro for there salad baps, they where yummy but. You have got to get a heated chocolate waffle in this Bakery, we got one every night..unbelievable. Amsterdam is beautiful, its like going back in time with the old bikes, old buildings and police men on horses with very little cars, brilliant to see. Oh and can I just say the boys are hottt. So much to do in Amsterdam....loved it so much. Anne Frank was class, and Madam Tussauds was good crack, remember your camera :)You can't miss out on a wee snap of you and Robert Pattinson. Nemo was ok, seeing as me and my partner are 18 and 23 it was a little boring, got a few laughs but, you could make bubbles around yourself which is pretty cool. I've got so much to write about its ridiculous. The people are amazing...they speak so many languages and are so friendly, I couldn't get over it. Oh and the shops are amazing. There is normal shopping streets with Zara and River island then there is a better version of house of Frazer which has Gucci and Louis Vuitton etc...so good.

Dining

Take a tram to dam square and walk up the main eating street. There are so many resturants. The Bakery on the right hand side, (you can't miss it...looks and smells amazing) stop and get a heated waffel, so good. The steak house is good on the left hand size, order chicken and peppered sauce. You get chips and salad with it and your drinks come in huge pint glasses. The Chinese resturant is amazing, walk up this street past the 1st Canal and its the chinese on the corner(on the left), you can't miss it either. (you go upstairs init) and it is so posh and not expensive. Order the Sweet and sour chicken and there chicken chow main. Its amazing. loved it.

Good Location & Service, Some Weaknesses

Would recommend Wed, Dec 29, 2010
This hotel was a perfect home base for us in Amsterdam. Located very close to the city center (but far enough to not be in the craziness and noise), with two tram lines intersecting right on the corner. Location-wise, could hardly have been better -- there is also a bank ATM on the corner, and a decent Chinese restaurant for takeout (called The Happy Corner). The front desk service was warm and so helpful. There we were able to buy 48-hour transit cards and were given a map to the system, and verbal directions. They even volunteered to print out our boarding passes the morning of our international flights. The room was small but nice-looking. The beds were soft, with plentiful pillows, and provided a deep night's sleep. The downside: It smelled like cigarette smoke when we arrived, despite the hotel's non-smoking policy. And the room cleaning was perfunctory... they made the beds, but didn't replenish the in-room tea supplies or take away/wash the dirty mugs and plates. So, not perfect, but good for the price, and we had a nice stay.

Good value location away from the crowds

Would recommend Tue, Dec 21, 2010
Visitng daughter going to college there, the time of year not the best due to winter weather conditions. Hotel located away from the city core but close enough to get there by tram which runs by. Located nest to the Zoo. Resturants and bars near by so one could eat and drink in the area with locals,which was fun. Canal boat trips were great. took high speed train to Colgne,Germany to take in the Christmas Markets they are worth seeing. The architecture in Rotterdam is good to see.

Would recommend Tue, Dec 7, 2010
I've stayed in Amsterdam several times. This place is just a standard 2 star with small bathrooms and small rooms. A good value if you are traveling alone in the Dam and just need a room you wont be in very much.Beds are fine.100% non smoking.Use Tram 9.
