Wonderful visit

Actually had a coffee maker in the room. Vast majority of european hotels do not have coffee in the room. The staff were very freindly and accomodating. Hotel was clean and strategically well placed in the vicinity of everything I wanted to do or places to visit.

Not a 4 Star Hotel

The hotel is centrally located. It's easy to get to from the airport and easy to get around. They "upgraded" us to a "superior" room when we checked in.The room was very small, but nicely furnished. The carpet needed to be replaced as it was unevenly faded all over. The double bed was just two twin beds pushed together and there was an obvious space down the middle. The bathroom was tiny and looked like it hadn't been remodeled in 20 years. They only provide soap and shampoo, no lotion, conditioner, shower cap, or other items. There was no way to control the temperature in the room, just AC on, or nothing. I would not stay here again. We needed extra towels and had to call twice for them and then we had to call each of the following nights for extra towels again.

Great location

Free wireless is offered in the lobby area only and then it's limited to 30 minutes, after being given codes that are a hassel to use. Otherwise for a 12 euro fee it is available in your room.

In the heart of the City

We have stayed at the Jolly Carlton several times in the past and always enjoyed our time there. This hotel is a well kept secret in Amsterdam, it is next to the Floor Market and within walking distance of everything in the City. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and welcoming. This visit our room was upgraded at no extra charge to us, making our vacation even better. Being a frequent visitor to Amsterdam, we will always stay at the Jolly Carlton.

There are great cafe's in all the department stores close by that offer fabulous lunches at reasonable prices, as well as many other restaurants close by. Also, several great Dutch restaurants (Hasje Clase) on the Spui, a few blocks away.

Noisy Hotel Location

The hotel location was very convenient for visiting all the tourist areas in Amsterdam city. Hotel staff was friendly. They helped in arranging sightseeing trips. Buffet breakfast was good. Room was generally clean, but the hotel is located in a busy area where traffic and people make a lot of noise through most of the night.
