This is a great hotel in so many regards: Excellent location especially for walking to so many destinations; interesting decor and spacious rooms as well as bathrooms; fantastic breakfast and the hotel staff could not be more gracious or helpful. Front desk person helped me with a very tricky situation that had nothing to do with the hotel...just helped out when the need arose. I will be forever grateful. Wonderful stay.

It was a nice stay in general-room was spacious, there was a good choice of food for breakfast, the coffie was great (it is complimentary during the day as well). Location is excellent-all main attractions are within walking distance,so we didn’t use taxi or tram during our stay. We booked the stay just few days before the arrival and the prices were much lower in comparison with other hotels located in center-it was a good value for money. We didn’t want to use the cleaning service during our stay, but the ladies would leave clean towels by the doors each day-this was so much appreciated.

We had a treble room yes the stairs might be an issue as they are steep but this seems to be everywhere in Amsterdam. The staff on reception were fantastic the location was perfect. The room was so quiet and central heating on the whole time so room was nice and cosy. Fantastic shower breakfast was plentiful. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for 2 nights. We had a room with a double and a twin. Perfectly sized room. The hotel was clean, breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly. Very nice hotel. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Perfect hotel for a few nights in Amsterdam. Staff really friendly and the location is superb. I stayed for 2 nights while my daughter was on hockey tour and I was so central to the main attractions and restaurants and coffee shops. Definitely recommend it.

The hotel is centrally located with some good restaurants nearby. The rooms are a bit dated and the facilities are somewhat limited for a hotel which charges 245 Euros per night for Friday and Saturday. The reception staff were friendly enough although my friend asked them to make a call to confirm a taxi booking and they refused saying that had a taxi contact with another firm!!. There are no in room coffee facilities although you can get it in reception . Breakfast was OK with a large choice of pastries etc. I think it is very overpriced for what they offer - I would look around for better value for such an expensive room.

I must admit that we are used to more upmarket hotels. This was a sort of extra as we have an event in The Hague over the weekend (stayed Wednesday & Thursday) and love visiting Amsterdam, so all was required was somewhere central, clean and with breakfast. We were a bit apprehensive, but the experience has been very positive on the basis it "does what it says on the packet": central, clean and the breakfast fine (fresh fruit salad with yogurt & musli and a coffee is all we usually have anyway, however upmarket (there is a wider selection). The 4 stars is purely based on what it is, but not a criticism. We would consider this hotel again.

Great location. Clean. Good service. Very good breakfast. Stairs are inconvinient, but this is Amsterdam... Definitely an option for my next visit in Amsterdam. All and all, the ratio of price to benefit is good, and if the hotel is mainly for sleeping then Nova is perfect.

I was meant to stay at the hotel with my boyfriend, but due to the multiple storms our flights were delayed and cancelled so we ended up missing our reservation. We were told that we would receive a refund due to the fact it was not our for missing the reservation. We were then told we were not going to be getting any refund with no explanation. Good luck with them if you ever have a similar situation.

Pretty basic hotel. Staff Okay! Not overly friendly. Breakfast fine. Would I recommend this hotel? No I'd say you'll find better for the same price. Free tea and coffee facilities nice touch but when I asked for milk for my tea I was told No!! They don't give milk!!! I'm paying 80 euro a night bed and breakfast and i cant get milk!! If you are looking for hostel quality book the nova if you are looking to stay at a hotel look else where!!
