Great for exploring the city

My son and I stayed for two nights. The location was perfect, and the room was comfortable, clean and well equipped. We found the staff very helpful. We followed the hotel website advice about getting a tram from Central Station but it turned out that there were diversions because of long-term road works and the tram didn't stop at Spui as usual. New to the city, it took us a while to work this out and we had to get another tram back from the outskirts to Dam Square, and start again. At the end of our visit, we didn't bother with the tram, shuttle bus or taxi that were suggested, we just walked to the station which was only about 15-20 mins. In fact nowhere was ever further than 20 mins' walk, and the route was always delightful. We didn't take the hotel breakfast but found a cafe further along the street for one morning and a tiny cake shop that also served coffee for the other.

The cake shop is out of the back door of the hotel and just a few doors along on the corner of the bridge and street. The best coffee and an amazing array of cakes and waffels.

Internet connection bad

Paid for a wifi connection that barely worked. My hotel in India had a better connection, India! But otherwise, great central location that allowed me to walk to anywhere in the city. The room was also rather large for a European hotel.

Great Location! Good Value!

We were in Amsterdam for three days. The city itself was beautiful and quaint and the people very friendly. The hotel was excellent. The clerk who checked us in was witty and informative, especially while trying to ascertain the difference between a twin and a double bed! The room was spacious and the large'ish bathroom was appreciated, as well as a real, standup shower, as opposed to a hand shower. The room was cleaned daily, the bed was comfortable, the temperature was great and the blackout curtain worked well. The location was perfect - wthin walking distances of anything in City Centre. Our only criticism is that the coke machines did not contain bottled water. A great hotel for the price!

Great Location, somewhat noisy

Location is really good. Hotel is good and clean, but nothing overly exciting about it. Somewhat loud at night: there is noise from the street and you can hear everything that goes on in the hall. If you have a car, parking is 40 Euros per day.

Quality Service-Affordable Price

This was my first visit to Amsterdam and we arrived by train at the Central Station. The hotel accommodated our early arrival. Our room was not ready, but they found another room, that was slightly upgraded (without charge) and allowed us to check-in early. The location is about 3-4 blocks from the Central Station but very close to the tram stop(s). We requested a canal side view and they happily complied. The staff graciously offered suggestions for dining and provided directions readily. They also allowed us to store our luggage after check-out and were friendly even when busy with other guests. Our room was clean with wood floors and was generously sized. The bathroom had large counter space and very nice shower (no tub). It was located near many popular bars and restaurants and just blocks from the city centre.

See this city by bike! It's a very walkable city but seeing it by bike was our favorite part of the trip.
