Wonderful time....

Arrived early on a Sunday morning and was able to check in immediately.... Got great directions from the front desk staff during entire visit.... all four of us remarked about the cleanliness of the room, the great location right on Dam square, and the competence of the people there. Will go there again.

Very good location, clean hotel

Location in Dam Square is excellent. Staff are friendly. Hotel is clean. Rooms are modest. Mine looked directly into a crowded department store, but it was a very quiet room.

1 night stay in Amsterdam

The hotel room was small but very nice. 2 twin bed pushed together into a king bed so it could be used either way. The staff was fantastic!

Mixed review. More good than bad.

The location is very good, central. On the Dam Square. Close to Palace, Red Light District, the Jordaan. First room was very bad. Old, out of date room in center of building, i.e. no views. Upon request, moved us to much better room (#217) with a view over Dam Square. A little noisy since it looks out over the busy street below, so keep that in mind. Hotel / front desk was a little busy and chaotic, e.g. couldn't find my reservation, but in the end, everything worked out OK.

Perfect Location

The hotel is about a 5-8 min. walk from Central Station and the walking wasn't bad at all. We got in at about 11AM and our room wasn't ready which was understandable because the site clearly states that it's not until 4PM. The reception stored our things away and we walked to a sandwich place next door to grab a bite to eat. We came back in 15 minutes and they told us that our room was ready when we came back. The room was clean but small which is not a surprise for European standard. The coffee machine makes coffee which is pretty good and complimentary so we din't really have to buy coffee outside the hotel. They also had no issues to give us more. The best thing about the hotel is it's location because you walk out of the hotel and you're right on DAM Square. All the sites are a walking distance. They offer fee internet in the Business center so you don't have bring your laptop with you. My husband and I would definitely stay here again.

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.
