Below expectation

I had difficulty sleeping due to noise from the Dam square. The shower mixer had some issues due to which the water temperature kept changing. While checking out I was told that the staff would have been happy to move me to another room, but that was not what I experienced. When I had asked for another room I was told everything was occupied. Next time I will choose a quieter and nicer hotel in jordaan district.

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.

No drama

The staff was very courteous and worked hard at delivering a sense of intimacy. The room was simple and classic. The hotel felt small without the multiple restaurant selections and meeting spaces of a typical American downtown hotel. The neighborhood offers a variety of restaurants and shopping experiences. The hotel's Damrack street location is active and "touristy".

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Unless you're in the market for diamond jewelery, avoid the red school bus city tour offered up the street near the train station. It's billed as 1 hr/45 minute adventure of which 1 hr. is consumed by a mandatory tour of a diamond factory.

In the middle of it all...

Had a very nice suite. Great bathroom (important when you've traveled long distances ), very clean, staff was very nice and accomodating. Right in the middle of town a short walk from Centraal station, which travels all over the netherlands and farther countries as well.

the main shopping area is a block away and goes on for blocks. Also the infamous red light district is not far, but also more family friendly areas are a short distance.

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 for the hotel, right on Dam Square. Easy walking distance to many attractions. Tram stops right by the hotel for easy access everywhere else. Rooms were rather small, though.
