Booked this hotel for my trip to A State Of Trance 2018 in February. Hotel is small, located 20 min tram ride to the center. I took a single bed room. The room itself was small and the bed was not comfortable -the mattress was sliding off. Also mold in the corners. My room had another problem: tiny flies which came from the drain hole in the shower most likely. I called reception immediately and was told to open a window or to take a bug spray from them which is a horrible idea apparently. I decided not to argue with them and cleaned out the flies myself. Of course they came back the next day. I went to the reception and there was a different receptionist, not the one I spoke to on the phone. He said he will fix the problem when I will be back to the hotel which he really did! The flies were gone and a big thank you to him for that. The breakfast does not have a big choice but the breakfast room is nice and cozy. I also liked the fireplace in the lobby. This hotel was a bit cheaper than others but it is not a big difference: I will pay some 50-100 EUR more next time and get accommodation than this. It was not horrible but nothing great either.
stayed here for one night...hotel is ok. reception staff nice...room had all we needed...breakfast nice. bed was a little hard but huge window which opened wide to let the air in....it was warm in the room which isn't a bad thing in the winter....electric blinds at the window which made the room nice and dark for sleep....we were on floor 3..it's either take the lift or walk...stairs are quite steep. bare this in mind if lifts are not your thing...we picked this hotel because it had parking...in fact you pay extra for parking at a machine and it's 25 euro for 24 hours so if you were here for a few days it's gonna get expensive...it makes your reasonable price of a hotel not so....the other options on the machine were way way too expensive....and also you may not get parked outside if no spaces....we parked at the supermarket just a few doors down....hotel location good...trams stop nearby...if you catch tram 4 it takes you to the centre you can get a day ticket on the tram so nice and easy...amsterdam is famous for its liberated way of life so we were amused to find an unexpected gift on our return to our room last night......I decided to put the tv on...so grabbed the remote control from the case....wmdidnt expect to find some canabis....really......was it the last guests stash ?????? just more concerned if any kids got their hands on it....maybe cleaner hadn't Checked the pouch the remote was in.....all in all and ok place to stay.....just watch parking and Check room for weed.....
It is situated a little far from the central Amsterdam but it is bang on the tram line ( Tram No. 4 from Centraal) so commuting is not a problem. The neighborhood has few nice eateries and also a super market. Rooms are decent, offers good view and not too much of noise to bother. Breakfast was included in our room tariff and we found it was adequate to get going for the day though not as elaborate as you would typically find. The neighborhood is beautiful and that makes it a very pleasant experience to stay at this place.
Horrible! We got a room with dirty sheets, broken shower and there was a strong noise coming from a generator outside our window. When we tried to complain the manager said theres nothing he can do. really disappointing :(
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.
