What a wonderful time even in the rain

Everthing was just wonderful. The only little thing I did not really like was the buffet breakfast. It was suppose to open and available till 11 but when we got there at 10:45 there was nothing left and nothing was being replaced. We were not told there was a menu available. But other than that it was wonderful. We had dinner there and it was great. Will be back next year.

Great Location, Solid Service.

Wonderful location, very central to the old city. Easy to stop in for a break and then go out again to explore the town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are smaller than what we have in the USA, but were a good size for Europe. Location was key!! Easy to get to the sites, restaurants, and shopping and public transportation too.

Great Location; American-Style Hotel

Great, centralized location; American-Style Hotel with relatively spacious and very clean rooms; Comfortable walking distance to everything that Amsterdam has to offer, but bicycle rental and public transport are very close by for those who don't want to walk the city; Restaurant was beautifully decorated, but we did not dine there so are unable to comment on food or service; Staff was friendly & helpful; Free internet access on several desktop computers (with printer) available in the business center; Hotel also had free workout facilities that we did not use so we cannot comment

Hotel in the center of it all!

First this hotel is in a prime location for exploring Amsterdam. It's located right in the center of town in Dam Square with a tram stop out front, great for getting to other areas of town. The staff gave us excellent service[...]. [...] was extremely helpful at working out this problem and we were able to get our suite overlooking the Dam. The Hotel rooms were very nice with comfortable King sized beds and large bathrooms. This hotel really made our stay in Amsterdam enjoyable. They even gave us a complementary bottle of champagne for our Honeymoon. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

The trolly from central train station stops at the front door but it is only a 10 minute walk to the main train station. the red light district is a stones throw away also.

Great Location

We visited Amsterdam for 2 days. the location of the Hotel is ideal for a short visit. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and modern. Our room overlooked Dam square but was not too noisy. Free internet access in business center. Fitness room is nice but we did not have time to use it.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

When in amsterdam, rent a bike. The city is very bike friendly, and you will see so much more, especially when visiting for a short time. Also, do go on one of the boat tours, which start just down Damrack street, a few minutes from the hotel.
