Great location

Really had nice stay here. A great location - only about 10 mins by tram to Dam sq. / railway stn. A walk from reasonable restaurants and shopping, not to mention next door to the flower market. Recommend 'la Place' for cheap but wholesome breakfasts and lunches but you are spoilt for choice in the local area. See Rembrandt square. The room was nice and airy and the windows opened too. Lovely beds with feather mattress topper - so comfy! The staff were all really friendly and polite. Only thing to criticise was the occasionally smelly plug hole of the shower. It did whiff but not for too long and couldn't be bothered to complain. Overall would recommend and would definitely stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Definitely try the trams. 4,16,24 & 25 the stop is Munt Plein (square) and is a two minute walk to the hotel (go around the corner then cross the road to go under the tower) and across the bridge. You can buy the 1 hour ticket from the driver - cash €2.80 and passes avail. for more frequent use.

A great hotel and location.

Our non-smoking room was spacious with a view of the tram line, shoppers and a cinema. Warm bath, well designed hair dryer, small kitchen, friendly staff, delicious breakfast with a big variety of cheese, waffles, fruit, juices etc. The best thing is the location. Situated right next to the flower market, main shopping area, La Place food hall, Rembrandt Square and a barge tour jetty. Excellent. I will definitely go there again. 10/10

Go past the flower market, through the Munt clock tower, cross the road, past the English book shop and soon on your right is La Place food hall! Two floors of fresh food and a third floor eating hall.

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.
