Great Location - Nice Team

Wonderful central location - directly on Dam Square. Could walk to meals, shopping, and many attractions - quick walk to the train as well. The hotel is very old and they do their best to maintain. Front desk service is slow, but they are very gracious once you have their attention. I would say this a 4-Star not a 5-Star hotel. The concierge staff is very helpful. It is a noisy location - they can't do anything about that - but, also fun and bustling.

Challenge finding hotel with Garmin and one-way streets. Parking is an issue. Hotel has great history and is centrally located. Internet access a challenge.

Perfect location

This hotel was was right in the heart of this vibrant, bustling city. The room we were given unfortunately had a strong smell of drains ! We were immediately moved to an-upgraded room which was lovely,quite small but imaculate and modern. (no extra charge) staff couldn't be more helpfull . Breakfast was buffet style and the choice of food was extensive although pricey at €59 for two of us .would definatly stay here again and recommend to friends.

In heavy tourist area

This was a good value hotel with a lovely staff and extremely helpful concierge (they booked taxis for me, etc). It should be stated, though, that this is in the "Times Square" area of Amsterdam. For a more authentic experience, I'd recommend staying in a smaller boutique hotel in the Jordaan area. The price was hard to beat, though! If you like a large, corporate-feeling hotel in a busy area, this is a good choice.

5* Hmmm ?

Room service - couldn't get through to them so went via reception who said they'd call me straight back. We gave up after 2 hours and went out to eat. The room - was cold and heating was under central control so couldn't increase the temperature. On the plus side - excellent location and a beautiful hotel.

Amsterdam Get -Away

Excellent Location to catch tram or can walk to many sites (i.e., Ann Frank House, Red Light District, Flower Garden) Staff very eager to please and make your stay positive. Great grocery and wine store behind Palace. Museums are a short tram ride away. Argentine steak restaurants are within walking distance and french fries with mayonnaise are a must try.
