A stone throw away from Central Station and all attractions

First impression - very friendly and helpful staff. We requested a specific room and they had it blocked out for our stay. The room was spacious and adequate for our 2 night stay. I was impressed with room service as they were not intrusive (we requested not to be disturbed on our last day) and so they left clean towels by the door for us (very thoughtful). The location was perfect and it was so close to everything - the Dam, Anne Frank museum. Amsterdam Dungeons, shopping. We walked everywhere and didn't need to take public transport. We will be staying again (if) we next visit.

Lovely Experience

The hotel location, staff and room where above average and made our stay really great! The staff where pleasant and very professional. The only thing I would add is, you expect to pay the €16 city tax BUT they also ask for a €100 deposit which as first time holidayers we didn't expect. Pre warning of that would have set us up a little better. Great place to stay and in a fantastic location. We will be back.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Anne Frank museum is a must see, just get there early! Opens at 9am so be in line for 8:30am and it's about a 20 min walk from the hotel.

Perfect central location, but a bit odd

Greeting at reception by Eline was outstanding, she was helpful, smiley, genuine, effiecient. Room was small even though it was a Deluxe room. We kept bumping into each other, it was annoying. Carpeted walls were a bit tacky. The beds are really strange. Two twin mattresses in a bed unit, like on a ship, with high sides and a restraining bar that we kept catching out legs on. Not really 'twin' beds. Mattresses were too soft and we sank down into them. Head of bed postioned in middle of room so that you face the wall with the TV on it at foot of bed. Felt claustrophobic facing this way and you can't change around because you hit the TV. Aircon worked very well in the room, but public areas were stiflingly hot and stuffy. Good shower, weird glass-walled bathroom. Toilet in a very tight, narrow space. I would go again on my own but not two people.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The hotel offers the Priority Pass for most of the major sights, it's free and helps avoid queues. A good idea. Also, buy the tram passes, they save so much time.

Great hotel, amazing location!

Location, location, location! 5 minute walk to Central Station, Red Light district and Dam Square. Wonderful staff, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The room was very clean and nice, with an extremely comfortable bed. The only true downside was that the room was very, very small - not an extra inch to spare! Bathroom had a cool clear glass sink and instant HOT water. Very good value overall - will stay there again!

Very Clean, but Weird Layout

The hotel staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. Other than that we weren't impressed. I had reserved a double bed. When we got there all they had available was 2 twins pushed together, which ended up being really uncomfortable. A double bed opened up in the middle of our trip and they offered for us to move, but it was easier to stay where we were. They room layout was weird and there wasn't much space. I am used to small rooms in European hotels, but if they had payed more attention to the spacial arrangement it would have opened up the room a lot. They also squeezed the toilet between the sink and shower, so if was weird to manuever around in the bathroom.

Location

Decent location, depending on what you want to do in Amsterdam. Was a decent walk to the Anne Frank Museum, Heineken Experience, and I Amsterdam sign. Was close to coffee shops, shopping areas, and red light district. Room was very small, but clean. Wasn't too pricey, but I stayed Thursday/Friday.

Great location. Remodel was done well. Free wi-fi is rare.

It was nice and the location was perfect. You are two to four blocks from everywhere inside the canal rings. The remodel was done quite nicely. Hot water, clean comfortable bed, tv, wi-fi, etc. I would stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try the little Italian restaurant about 1/2 block west of Hotel (a right as you walk out the front door). For a good price, you get a pretty good and fairly large pizza that is great for filling up before a night out.
