3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is one of the best reasonably priced hotels in Amsterdam.A 10 on 10 for it's location (right on Dam Square, the most happening place in Amsterdam) a 10 on 10 on their helpful n courteous behavior..we checked in at 2am but they were so polite n patient unlike other places, provided us with umbrellas when it was drizzling n of course a wonderful breakfast..if ever I go back to Amsterdam this is the place that I am going to stay for sure!!

We chose this hotel based on its location, its price, and its reviews. We were very pleased with our stay. We arrived early morning from a transatlantic flight, airport train ride, and a city tram ride to the hotel. We were able to find our way to the hotel with the instructions the hotel staff provided, supplemented with the application on my i-phone. The hotel is located on a pedestrian only street off Dam Square. There is a nice lobby with complimentary coffee and sitting area. We stored our luggage and off we were to meet our free 11:00 am Walking tour in Dam Square! This hotel has a nice elevator. The room was large and the bathroom large, too. We were given the Boots suite. I am not sure if it a higher category than what we paid for (a standard double) but it was, by all European standards, huge. The only downside was that you have to walk up about 5 steps to reach the door so you have to drag luggage up. Don't forget to pack a wash cloth if you use one since European hotels rarely provide them. I forgot to pack one this time. Be careful not to trip stepping over the doorway into the bathroom. Wifi was very good, too. Breakfast is served in a welcoming breakfast room off the lobby and had a nice selection of yogurts, fruit, cheeses, meat slices, hard boiled eggs, breads, cereals, juices, coffee, etc. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay at this property.

Don't tell is perfectly located in the center of Amsterdam, about the 5 to 6 minute walk from the central station if you come by train, you can easily walk around the city center and find lots of bars and restaurants and shops at possibilities. However, also the rooms are clean and the beds are good, it's not the luxury hotel but do you have everything you need from free Internet, to a desk on the TV. It's a great value is paid less than €200 a night. Stuff it's a very nice.

We recently spent 3 nights here. The lobby is beautiful and the front desk staff excellent. They were very helpful in storing our bags upon our early arrival as well as giving us great directions to all the sights we had planned to see. The location of the hotel is amazing...small, small street, but within easy walking distance to just about everything. Anne Frank House and many canals, a very short walk away. I will say that the room was very large and had lots of storage space. The bed was a bit soft, but when you're tired from all that walking, it didn't make any difference. I do think the rooms could use a bit of a decoration upgrade but it was clean and suited our needs just fine. Another plus was the elevator! They also served a very nice breakfast with many selections. I would most certainly stay there again if I return to Amsterdam

I couldn't have asked for a better location in the historic district of Amsterdam. Hotel is in desparate need of renovation, yet overheard that will be forthcoming. Pros: Location, location, location! Staff, most helpful and aims to please Great WiFi Room safe Adequate breakfast, could use a bit more variety with sliced/chopped fresh fruit Cons: Room design was odd, yet generally functional Room 229 was over street and very noisy (couldn't keep window open), even though I asked for a quiet room Hard pillows Very compact shower

This is a great hotel in Adam Square. The price is extremely reasonable. You can't beat the location. The service is excellent. The rooms are clean as well. Breakfast isn't great but it is included in price of room. Step out of hotel and there are plenty of bars and cafes.

I had a complimentary night with my Best Western rewards so I decided to use it in Amsterdam for a pre-cruise night. This hotel is located near all the action- in Dam Square and walking distance to Central Station (the station that drops you off from the airport if you take the train (which I recommend)). It is off on a side street that cars aren't allowed on so keep that in mind when looking for it. The staff was nice and professional, breakfast was good and stocked, and the room had everything you needed for a solid night's sleep. Stayed March 26, 2017

After travelling from Paris, where we stayed in a small room, this was huge. It’s a standard Best Western - comfortable and business-like with the usual amenities and breakfast selection. It is located in the convenient Dam Square area accessible by several Trams. It is one tram stop away or a 10-minute walk from Amsterdam Central. Several eateries and shop abound this area. The little street on which it stands is a bit deserted late at night, but looked safe enough.

Recently stayed at this hotel. Fantastic location right at dam sq. close to everything. Breakfast good and do supply gluten free bread on request. Rooms basic with super comfy beds. We stayed over the weekend and had a room at the front of the building. It was a bit noisy with street noise so if that's going to bother you you might be best to request a room away from the street. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Moderate hotel in a great location in center of old town. Within walking distance of many tourist and trendy spots. Lots of cafes, pubs and shops nearby. Room was small but clean and adequate. Bed was super soft. Not to my liking but my wife thought it was great. Good breakfast included.
