Room 204 was a good size for a double bed, but the noise from other rooms through the paper thin walls was too much. Neighbours to the side and above made noise throughout the night - sleep was in short supply. Corridors of the hotel were very narrow. Front door system was really weird - I can't begin to describe it - but I was well confused.
Room was fairly small but okay very noisy at times, shower annoyingly small. Staff very friendly and helpful. A taxi to the airport is a very reasonable fixed price and they will even book it at the front desk. I found Uber the best way to get around
Very Small rooms , very Expensive, Good stuff & good service The area is cool and vital, you can find everything nearby There is a supermarket beside the hotel Near to Rijks museum Near to the Heineken experience You can take the tram outside the hotel to the airport in 20 minutes
I stayed at this hotel during a congress, so all the hotels of the city were fully booked. I arrived around 23H to discover that they gave my room to someone else by mistake, because they did not check the ID of the guest (they did not check mine neither by the way). After a long time, they managed to give me my room, and I discovered an extremely small room(hard to turn around the bed), with a bad, old cigarrette smell. Shower was old, and soap dispenser broken. Don't count on any complementary soap bar, tissues, body lotion... (surprising for this price and category of hotel). Bed sheets had old traces. On the plus side, the bed is big and confortable, there is a boiler and tea/instant coffee (if you manage to find a place for the boiler on the tiny desk), and there are automatic blinds (you need to press a button handing on bare cables but it's working). It is closed to several tram lines, very easy to go to the city center from there. Reception desk : I had a very early check-out and had been told the day before that I will find someone at the desk for my checkout, but when I showed up the room was locked and no one answered the phone, so I left the key on the room and left. I have to admit that the night receptionist spent time the evening before to help me find the quickest way to go to the airport, this was really appreciated. Breakfast is correct but you can find better in the city.
Stayed at the end of April and despite the hotel being full there wasn't too much noise heard from other rooms. The staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful - they were on hand to provide information on sights and how to get into the centre of Amsterdam as well as assisting in organising transport back to the airport at a reasonable price. The room was decent for what we paid and large enough for three persons to stay in - although the bathroom was slightly on the small side for three occupants. The location of the hotel is only a short walk to tram stops which can take you into the centre of Amsterdam. There are plently of shops nearby where you can get supplies if needed. The stay had breakfast included - there was plently of food on offer, including cereal, fruit, baked goods and juice/coffee/tea.
Stayed beginning of April and Hotel not too busy. Room was a good size, the bathroom was good, with an excellent walk in shower, with plenty of room - Getting in and out of bathroom was a bit strange as had to step into shower area to be able to close the door, but once you get the hang of it, this is not a problem. Plenty of hot water and soaps, shampoo etc., provided so no complaints with that. My husband is on the large size and found the shower to be very easy to use, which is always good news for me! Too busy sight seeing to try out television, so can't comment on that! The lift worked well and even though we were only on the second floor, I was happy about that, as stairs were very typically Dutch and narrow and windy and not easy to negotiate - I am over 60 with quite big feet and wary of broken bones, so this will probably not be an issue for many people! The breakfast was very adequate (Continental) and suited us very well and set us up nicely for the day ahead - If you are looking for a full English, don't pay for breakfast and go out to eat, there will be lots of options available. The staff were very attentive and replenished as required. If I had any complaint with breakfast, it would be the lack of a toaster and I appreciate that this is an English gripe, as we do like toast in the morning, but the bread on offer was so nice that it wasn't a big issue for us. The staff were friendly and very helpful throughout the hotel. The Receptionist made us very welcome as did the cleaning and kitchen staff - lovely helpful people in general and could not have asked for more! Our room was generally quiet and free from noise from other guests, but if I am honest once my head hits the pillow after a busy day, I am pretty much out for the count, so a light sleeper may give a different view - I will never know and can only give my viewpoint! We enjoyed being a few tram stops away from central as it gave us the chance to enjoy the outskirts and see other things journeying to central and it was just short tram journey overall. The trams are very frequent and it is nice to see how the locals commute and we were very pleasantly surprised to see how polite and helpful everyone was. I was offered a seat by many people on the short journey, if one wasn't obviously available and occasionally felt obliged to accept, even though I am perfectly capable of standing for a few stops - Lovely generous people and very friendly and welcoming in general! The wifi, which is a big issue with me generally in any location, was excellent and I had no problems at any time, I am happy to say! Overall, this is a very good hotel, with good services and helpful staff throughout, and very decent accomadation for a short stay in Amsterdam.
Room is decent enough, choose the rear rooms which have balcony and are away from the street so less noisy if you need to sleep with the window open. You get everything you need from the hotel and although not perfect it does suit the needs of anyone who needs a room for the night. Breakfast was continental and fairly basic although again, you get what you need to start the day. Overall a hotel that's better than a most but there are other choices available. Would I go back? Well, yes, so that kind of sums it up..
The hotel is a small hotel, evening reception is friendly, morning not and only English. My room was 50 metres away from the hotel, it was a spacious room, but noisy from street and neighbors. You got an own front door key. Internet was good. Pillows too tin. Breakfast was basic but fresh. The price matches the quality
The location is on tram line 4 which takes you direct to Centraal Station and the Centrum. The tram stop is just around the corner from the hotel and only takes maybe 15 minutes to get to Dam Square and another 5 to Centraal Station. The hotel itself is quite nice. Check in was fast. The room was nice and the bed very comfortable. The shower was hot and had the option of rain forest shower head; my favourite! Staff was courteous and the room was clean. Breakfast was very nice with many options. My only complaint, and this goes for most European hotels and nearly all US hotels, is that there is no safe in the room. Otherwise, I would stay here again.
Don't even think of staying here. The staff is rude, especially the night shift. Payed for a standard room, and received a smaller one. When complained about it, they said that I should wait till the next day, or leave and sleep somewhere else. Finally we received the room we paid for, but this was the most stressful trip in my past 20 years! Better stay at a quality hotel next time.
