Best Western Dam Square Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Dam Square is the “place to be” in Amsterdam. This Best Western is right in Dam Square. The rooms were clean and atmosphere was ok but not great. The breakfast was good and the hotel staff allowed us to drink our own wine purchased on our river cruise. They gave us glasses and ice. Hotel is secure. Great restaurants near by. If you stay here be sure to go about 2 doors east to the De Niewe Pilserij restaurant. The hotel arranged a low cost airport transfer for us. We would stay there again.

This is a small hotel situated in a small alley right beside the Niewe Kerk. The room (118) was small but clean and tidy. Small bathroom but also clean and well maintained. Bed is Ok with big pillows. The only negative is that you can hear people taking or shouting in the alley so it can be some disturbance during the night, next time I would choose another room facing another way. The breakfast is Ok, you get everything you need. Big plus for your own coffepot atthe table.

1st stay at this hotel & will not be last. Hotel Location is great, near the Dam Square where you can find many bars, restaurants & a lot of shops, you have C&A, Primark, toys, Cheese Factories...... Staff are so helpful specially Mrs Zsoka & Mr Hussain, thank you. Rooms are large enough, clean, breakfast offers many varieties, cold cuts, cheese, butter, Jam, Corn flakes, Fruits, Juices, bread, toast, Coffee & tea & Milk...... No traffic in front of hotel, only until 11 am, after that street closed for cars, so if you need a taxi after 11 am you have to walk about 100 meters to main street for taxi. I Really enjoyed my stay & will stay again next time.

Stayed here for a week and quite impressed by the staff, Mr. Sonny and Ms. Zsoka among others! All very friendly, they provided helpful information on what to do, where to go, where to eat. Sorted our printing our airline boarding passes too! A more than adequate complimentary breakfast offers standard European fare. The lobby hosts a small bar which we never saw people use. Yes, there's a lift/elevator! Room 335 on the 3rd floor pleased us, especially after experiencing other Amsterdam hotels in the same price range. Large enough, quiet, clean, comfortable beds and a decent [by Amsterdam standards] sized bathroom (with a small shower). The Hotel is tucked away on an alley type street [no vehicular traffic allowed] occupying an historic building. We taxied in from the airport [about 50 euros]; the driver knew the hotel location and helped us carry our bags about 150 feet from the main street. Going to the airport by taxi worked well, again with the driver assisting with luggage. One could take the airport train or bus to save money but likely not time and certainly not effort. Dam Square is steps away from the hotel. Many nearby bars, shops, tattoo parlours, coffee shops, and dining options exist. We will stay here again.

Hotel has a simple breakfast! And no fridge in the rooms! Great location ! Near a lot of fast food like mcdonalds and burguer king that you can go after midnight! Near coffee shops as.well! And a lot of!

The Best Western Dam Square Inn is in an older building, as most building nags in Europe are. Wonderfully located, this hotel gives easy access to the trolley lines, the Central Station (train system) and lots of attractions, shopping and museums.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights prior to a Viking River Cruise. Walked from the main train station. Hotel is tucked away on an alley type street in an historic building. Dam Square is only steps away. Lots of dining options close by. Very friendly staff who provided helpful information on what to do, where to go, where to eat. Our friends stayed on the first floor (room 101, I think) and weren't thrilled with it. We were on the 3rd floor and were pleased with our room. It was big enough, clean, a comfortable bed and acceptable sized bathroom (small shower though). The complimentary breakfast was just okay; by day 3 it got very boring. Biggest plus was the location. I would stay here again.

Perfect location for middle of Amsterdam but if you don't have your bearings can be a nightmare to find particularly late at night after a few beers ! Pretty bog standard city centre hotel my room 119 was at the front and quite noisy with late back revellers plus the road sweeper every morning at 7am ! Lift slowest in the world and rooms small , breakfast lacking but all in ok for the price

Location is great and close to all the sights worth seeing. Housekeeping does a terrible job of cleaning up the rooms. My shower and toilet were never cleaned during my 3 night stay. The carpets in the room were dated and fraying at the seams.

This is a very pleasant hotel and is distinctive, by which I mean not the usual ' chain ' mentality. The staff are lovely and very helpful. Our room for 3 nights was fairly small and at the back of the hotel which was very quiet overlooking a tiny street. The bathroom and shower were ideal. Room and bathroom clean with tea and coffee and a hairdryer. The breakfast is a good selection of meat, cheese, bread, rolls, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea and juices. The location is great on a pedestrianised street with cafes, bars and restaurants. Just a stone's throw from Dam Square and many shops. Also near public transport. We loved visiting the amazing Anne Frank's house, awesome Van Gogh museum and taking a river cruise through the many canals. People everywhere were very friendly and chilled. We loved Amsterdam and will certainly return to this special city.
