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!

Anne Frank's house is a fairly short and scenic route where you cross three beautiful canals.

Midweek couples break

The hotel has a perfect location and the staff were very helpful and polite.the room was good but there is no views other than a brick wall from our room which meant very little natural light .this would not put me off using hotel again as location and staff were excellent.

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.
