perfect retreat

This hotel exceeded expectations! It is within walking distance of the main train station. They greet you with a warm towel, and water or orange juice. The rooms are large and modern with exceptional comfort and convenience. Ask for an upper floor in order to not hear street noise. We will stay there again without a doubt!

Great Location. Great Staff. Great Price.

My wife and really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were so helpful and friendly. The location was great. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was that the room was located next to a loud alley. Otherwise, terrific.

Great Place!

I stayed here over the weekend and it was great. The place looks so-so, but the rooms are great! I loved my room! The room looked very sleek and modern. It was in a perfect location. I will continue to stay here when I go to Amsterdam.

Ideal central location

Just back from staying at the Swissotel, Amsterdam and couldn't have chosen a better hotel. It is right next to Dam Square and just 5 minutes walk from Central Station. The staff were very welcoming and the hot towel on arrival was refreshing. Would definitely recommend it.

GREAT LOCATION! CLEAN HOTEL!

We went to celebrate New Year in Amsterdam. The hotel is in a prime location, close to all the point of interests. We watched the Dam Square fireworks right from outside the hotel door. Everything was great overall.
