This hotel stole the money of hundreds of guests who had to cancel due to no fault of their own when the EU banned entry of tourists from certain countries. Every other hotel and AirBnb from multiple EU countries and the airlines gave us refunds or vouchers to use at a later date except for this hotel. In Orbitz' defense they tried three times to get the hotel to give us vouchers. This hotel is motivated by greed and displays a clear lack of integrity since the EU is compensating small businesses for loss of revenue.

Beautiful hip hotel very well located, hotel offer basic amenities perfect for a short stay

We liked the hotel's location: it is very close to Amsterdam's city center. Easily accessible: the tram to the Centraal Station is very close by (although Amsterdam is very walkable). The rooms are decently sized with all the usual amenities. I especially liked the shower as it was very spacious (unlike in similar hotels in Amsterdam, where you can barely squeeze in). The staff is very friendly and helpful. All in all, a very pleasant experience. Note, that recently the Amsterdam city government has raised the city tourist tax, so be prepared for a hefty surcharge at the end of your stay. Obviously, this has nothing to do with the hotel as it applies to all lodgings in the city. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

This is a great hotel, so convenient to and from airport with 397 bus. So many teams are nearby. The hotel is clean and cozy, staff are friendly and helpful. The room is not big so if you want a big room then this is not the one for you. Bed is comfortable, showers are so good with two kinds of shower heads. Definitely will stay here again.

Only problem is that wood shavings fall from the ceiling (which has unpolished wood beams) and land on everything. Otherwise, great little hotel with modern designs and nice touches. Highly recommended if you want to stay near Vondelpark.

The hotel was great. It was walking distance to everything. The breakfast in the morning was top notch. Every tasted great. The only negative thing about the hotel is that the rooms are small.. but o enjoyed the hotel.

loved it . great staff great location they allocated us in balcony room thank youuuuuu

This beautiful hotel was very comfortable with excellent customer service!! I loved the rustic but modern feel to the newly built hotel!

Convenient location. Room was well appointed and quiet. Pillows were too thick. Room was a little small.
