Superb coffee maker! Clean rooms and bathroom! AM breakfast good. Iron and ironing board available at the front desk. They called for a taxi to get us to the airport on time. Central location to tram and bus stops.

Stayed here for three nights. Friendly staff at the reception and very good English (seems to apply to the entire city). A nice lobby with free coffee/tea 24/7. It also has a vending machine with water, soda, candy and beer. We booked a "Double room - Small". The room was nice and the bathroom was very fresh but with some poor lighting. But the room was small, as it said. Hehe. Not a lot of space in the bathroom and the bed was pretty short. It was kind of big enough for us (178cm (5'10") and 172cm (5'8") but I'm guessing any people taller than that might experience the bed as too short. The space while sitting on the toilet might also be close as the knees might be closing in on the wall right infront of it :) This may of course vary on different rooms, I have no idea. We never heard any neighbours. Good noise isolation. The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect. Walking distance to the shopping districts, Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. It's a pleasant walk to Ann Franks house as well. Plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby. The hotel offers some good discounts on several tourist attractions. We'd recommend buying tickets for a canal cruise here. Cash only. For 12€/ticket (18€ regular price) you got the Blue Boat Companys canal cruise, which is located 7min walk from the hotel. It's a 75min cruise with an Audio Guide in like 20 different languages, and a special one for kids (Pirate inspired) The WiFi was okey. It did struggle here and there. The hotel stored our luggage our last day of visit without any fees. The cab ride from Schiphol Airport to the Hotel was 37€. The reception helped us book a cab for our flight back home. That ride cost 40€. Will stay here again!

Good hotel in a good location located just outside the city centre. The check in process was quick and easy, staff were pleasant. The hotel have good off the road and secure parking facilities, across the road. Not many hotels can offer this at a budge in Amsterdam, close to the centre. I had a standard room and it was standard, no more no less. Clean but small without a window to open. The noise from the floor above was loud, both through the night and morning, let's say a couple 'enjoying themselves' I suppose the hotel can't help that though. Also, free tea and coffee was available in the lobby at all times.

Hotel was in a good spot, walking distance to attractions, bars and restaurants. Some attractions were further away but close to tram stops so this made it easier. The hotel was very clean. The room was tidy, the only drawback was that the window was facing the main road so it was very noisy at night. Another negative was that our toilet broke and made A LOT of noise. A member of staff came to try and fix it in the night but he couldn’t. He said he’d move us but couldn’t as the hotel was full. He then said we could have some money back as obviously we weren’t going to be sleeping well that night because of the noise. The next day we spoke to another member of staff at reception about the issue and he said he knew nothing about it and that we couldn’t have any money back. This was annoying as we barely slept that night because of the noise from the bathroom. Obviously there needs to be more communication between staff. Overall a pretty good stay.

This is a great hotel. Close to tram stops so very easy to get around. Fairly near to main attractions if walking. Friendly welcome in reception upon check in. Clean, tidy and very comfortable big bed. Free coffee and room safe. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Amsterdam.

Great hotel, comfy beds, good location, lovely breakfast, just what you need for a base for your exploring. Few marks/stains on carpets, but very clean. Can be a little bit noisy as walls are thin. Friendly staff, and nice to have a coffee machine and seating area that you can use anytime. Will stay here again if I return:)

I liked the cleanliness of the lobby and the room. Bathroom is well functional and pretty. We had a large window with a nice view. The staff is very helpful. Location is good, 20 minutes walk from the center and there is a tram station right next to the hotel. In the lobby they have a coffee machine free to use We didn't have a mini bar or a small fridge in the room, so we couldn't store all the cheese we bought or have a water bottle cold. The staff was very helpful though and offered to store our products in the kitchen fridge.

Once again my fellow TripAdvisors came through when we needed a great boutique hotel. Thank you all! Hotel Espresso in Amsterdam was in an excellent location. It is very near to the Rijksmuseum, the MoCo, and Van Gogh Museum. It was reasonably priced, very clean and comfortable. The room itself was small but I don’t live in my hotel room. I just sleep there. We had a large bed and a good size bathroom. I think we got a better deal than our friends, who were staying at The Doubletree. To start each day, we had a good self serve breakfast every morning. The fresh tangerines were exceptional. The front desk was very helpful from emailing us the best mode of transportation to get to the hotel and directions to get there(the express bus 397 from the airport), to Amsterdam directions , where to get best rates on currency, where to buy a converter, providing ice cubes(yes, we are Americans), and even chilling a bottle of wine. Housekeeping took good care of us as well. We were truly impressed with the excellent service we received. Hotel Espresso had free WiFi, air conditioning, and a great coffee machine in the lobby. Hotel Espresso is going through a remodel. The front lobby desk received some new tile while we were there. New cabinets were installed in the breakfast area. New chairs were appearing in the common area. Workers measured the front window. We were told that the rooms recently had the carpeting removed and the flooring was redone. There was also going to be new carpeting installed in the hallways. Good location, easy on our wallet, excellent service, very clean, and a good breakfast too, how can you beat that?

Modest hotel with a great breakfast and helpful staff. Rooms are small but the location is terrific. The good facing the gardens in the back are quiet and everything is new and clean. Wonderful Indonesian restaurant across the street. Would book here again.

Arrived early and left luggage. Reception staff very helpful. Location good - short walk to Heineken experience and main shopping area, Rooms clean and adequate for short break. Need more coat hangers if you’re there longer. Didn’t include breakfast but plenty of excellent cafes close by. On day of check out again left cases so could enjoy full last day Good value for money so would stay again
