Good and clean, 4 star level

Generally a good stay. Nice and clean hotel. Typical four star quality, clean but not very modern in terms of amenities. New towels but not sheets every day. No toiletries. Friendly staff and no problems during the stay. A/C in the room. Hotel is in a very nice area, lots of nice cafes. Location is 10 minutes from town centre by tram. Recommended, good quality for the price!

Not for Americans

This hotel is located in a nice area that makes Amsterdam sites accessible by bus or tram. But, the hotel rooms are so small, that if you're not traveling alone, there is not enough space. We booked a double, and we had to rearrange the furniture to accommodate our luggage. One of the beds was not comfortable, the maid service was very poor, and to top it off we were without any water one afternoon without any notice. Also please note: (April 2011) they were doing major construction on the building, less than 100 ft from our window, that started at about 7am on weekdays, so don't plan to sleep in.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

The Museumplein area is great for all types of museums and is a short walk from the hotel. For dining, we took the #2 tram from the hotel (we also walked once, but it is a bit far) to Leidseplein where there are restaurants galore! Any type of food you could possibly want at decent prices. We especially liked the all you can eat ribs, that are found at many locations, and the all you can eat chicken fajitas. A great place for Chinese fast food is called Wok and Walk across from McDonalds. Americans should be aware that you will not be served tap water in restaurants, and tea and coffee refills are also not possible without paying for a second cup. The only way to get water in a restaurant is to pay for mineral water. Since mineral water makes me blow up like a balloon, I smuggled in tap water from the hotel and sipped it when the waitress wasn't looking. • Another warning: Amsterdam has more bicycles than people. Beware of the bicycles. They come from every direction and are very dangerous. Getting off a bus, or out of a taxi is quite a risk. The bicycles are usually on the red brick area of the sidewalk, but it is so subtle that it rook us a day to figure it out. Once you understand where the bicycles are, it is a bit easier, but you must always be prepared for a surprise rider......and they do not slow down for pedestrians. The cars are easy to avoid, the bicycles are a challenge. •• I highly recommend Keukenhof tulip gardens if you are traveling in the Spring. For the best price, with no time restrictions, go to the Keukenhof website and buy a combi ticket that can be used on any day during the season. The combi ticket price is less than 1/3 of the price of packaged deals. It includes entrance admission, lets you have unlimited time in the garden, and includes a Connexxion bus ride (to and from the airport), and drops you off right at the front gate of the garden. Take the 197 bus to Schiphol airport from this hotel (4 euros each way) and then find the Connexxion bus to Keukenhof. The Connexxion bus runs about every 15 minutes till about 7pm. Give yourself several hours to enjoy this "Disneyland" of tulips. Be sure to go inside all the buildings so you don't miss anything. There are lots of restaurants, so no worries about food.

I would rate this a "good" [3

I would rate this a "good" [3 star] hotel. Breakfast was good. Location excellent if you want to see museums. Ha WiFi. But nothing special. If you want a place to sleep and as a homebase for touring, it does the job.

Good location - away from the noise

If you want a quiet stay in a residential location, this is the place to be. Nice little shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance although they don't stay open late. You need to be in the centre for that. I stayed in a single room which was a bit on the small side but the main things like cleanliness and good bathroom were spot on. Staff could have been more friendly and helpful with the hotel's facilities. The bar never seemed to be open and we forgot to ask about the fitness facilities so are not even sure they existed. The Hotel is within walking distance to Van Gogh and a few other points of interest but the trams were really easy to use to get to Dam Square and other parts. For a quiet stay, I would recommend this hotel.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you can, purchase the iAmsterdam Card which offers free travel on buses and trams (not trains) and either free entry or discounts on a full range of attractions and restaurants in Amsterdam. It is valid until the end of the year and is well worth the money.
