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.
Amazing room- very nice, AMAZING shower, clean, very friendly staff, very inexpensive, The location was a 2 min walk from the met stop which takes your into the center of Amsterdam (or where you need to go). Highly recommended and would definitely stay here again
Me and my partner stayed here for three nights. Very basic but clean, great location you can walk in to town or tram right outside. The staff are friendly and helpful and cleaned room daily. Lovely Italian around the corner on the right begging with t.
My third trip to Amsterdam we decided to stay here. It was a 10 minute taxi from the airport for around €15, although a good 25 minute tram to the centre (which was easily accessible) - although in the close surroundings of this hotel there is nothing nearby really There was no curtains other than net curtains so i woke up very early (as a light sleeper). The heating seemed to be on extra high because it was constantly too hot particulary in the night (again not great if you're a light sleeper). The double bed was two single beds pushed together, which wasnt ideal. The room was clean and good. Personally I would consider the price to be too high for the property. Although it was nice, there's definitely better in Amserdam.
The location of this hotel is great and so well accessible. I got a really nice corner room on the 2nd floor with a really comfortable bed, lots of space, black-out blinds and good heating. I didn't try the breakfast so won't be able to comment there. The reception area was really cute with a little fire going. Receptionist friendly enough. The only issue I had was on the first night, when I realised that the insulation of the rooms could be much better. The issues is, of course, with fellow guests that don't seem to have any sort of level of respect but SUPER loud music and "amourous" noises at 1:30 in the morning... not my cup of tea. The second night was much better and much quieter. I got a deal on booking.com so price was good. I did see that usual price is more but I still think it is good for value. I'd go back.
Tiny, tiny single rooms. Not very clean, but ok for that price. Got a room to the front of the building, which was very noisy, could hear the main door banging all night ! Since it was off seaon, I think they could have upgraded me, but thats up to the Hotel. The main thing, which scares me away, is the young man at the reception. I have never ever been welcommed that unfriendly and nearly hostile !
