...IS ADVERTISED. If you get to arrive there after hours consider taking a sleeping bag with you because you might not find staff. They charge you a 5 star rate compered to other European City hotels for a 3x3 meters room and a service that does not exists... Congratulations

The hotel is situated in a spot close to the city centre and at all times the staff were very friendly and polite. The included continental breakfast gave you eveything you needed to start the day. The soundproofing could be better, we were woken one morning at 7am and the next at 5.15am by the occupants of room above us constantly walking around. Rooms are only small, but hey you should be out enjoying the city not staying in your room Apart fom the noise it's a good value for money hotel for a short stay.

Stayed here for a weekend and it's a great spot as a base. It's in an old historic part of town so it's a typical Amsterdam building. The rooms are small but it's very nice, very clean and the breakfast selection was great. Staff are very pleasant and polite. Would stay here again. It's located near vondel park and its very short walk to a couple of tram lines. From there you can get to anywhere in Amsterdam quite quickly. A short walk also is a great location for food with many streets just stacked end to end with various restaurants and bars. It's a great location in the city to stay. Away from the hussle of central but in a very lively area all the same.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel from Monday 6th till Friday 10th November and I could not fault this hotel. From the lovely receptionist who greeted us when we arrived on Monday to the perfect room this hotel is perfect for anyone wanting to visit and explore Amsterdam. The staff are happy to give directions and tourist information and the hotel is close to all the museums. The house keeping staff come in daily and the rooms are always clean and tidy and there is a free breakfast every morning. This hotel is perfect and my partner and I cannot wait to come back and stay here again. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Amsterdam.

Arrived friday 3rd of nov for my husbands 40th . Staff at front desk called Ford was very charming and met all the needs of our visit . He gave us a very nice double comfy room. Bottle of wine for us arriving was lovely . The surroundings of hotel were lovely very close to everything in walking distance . Only thing i would have liked would be have been tea facilities in room.

This hotel is situated in a residential street, just behind the Marriott hotel. The bedrooms are very clean, the breakfast - continental - very good selection. The hotel offers lots of deals off attractions in Amsterdam. Would stay again

Cannot fault this hotel, hotel is about 30 minutes from the train station and near everything, ideal for a trip away with a friend. We were met by lovely reception staff who were all friendly and made an effort to tell us were everything was and that they would help if we wanted to do any excursions. Our room was number 14, its small but it's clean and tidy with modern decoration and has a lovely balcony with a seated area to sit out on. It's perfect for my friend and I. Breakfast is also brilliant, I don't understand how people can fault it! Yes, there is no massive fry ups, but there is so much choice! There is fruit, cereals, toasts, so many types of bread, cold meats, eggs, fresh fruit, dried fruit and that's just a selection. There is also a lovely garden area with parrots in it which you can watch from the breakfast area. Everything you will want to do and see is no more than a 30 minute walk from this hotel and there is trams very close to hotel too if you want to go further. I highly recommend this hotel and would 100% stay again.

My daughter wanted to go Amsterdam for her 16th birthday, she had a full itinerary to get through so we needed a hotel in close proximity to everything, hotel Prinsen ticked all the boxes. A half hour journey on the bus we arrived at this lovely little hotel and it ticked all the boxes for us. We had a triple room so had plenty of room and a good breakfast was included. The place was clean and the staff were lovely, would recommend this hotel to anyone. 5 minutes from the beautiful vondel park, 10 minutes from the museums and roughly a twenty minute walk the other way to the truly inspiring Anne Frank house. I fell in love with this beautiful city and can't wait for our next family city break....although this will be hard to beat.....thank you hotel Prinsen for making our stay so lovely and for helping to make sure Liberty had such a memorable 16th Birthday ❤️❤️❤️❤️

We recently stayed at this hotel when we were in the city for a conference and sightseeing. Whilst it is not located right in the centre it is a short tram ride from the Central station and is staffed by friendly people. My wife was impressed by the room and the breakfast provided every morning. I would highly rate this hotel.

With 50000 people Attending a Conference In Amsterdam over the week We Visited, it was extremely difficult to Find suitable accomodation. A boutique hotel called the Prinsen was selected. It is well located in Amsterdam and close to the hop on off bus and tram transports. The Hotel was Clean and quaint and the breakfast was European and very adequate. The Photos on the internet of the bedrooms were less than correct. In fact I had to take turns with my wife when getting up and using the bathroom as there was only enough room For one To Move from The bed and then in the bathroom. In fact one of our friends rooms has the shower located in the small cupboard. The Bed was two single mattresses and you tend to sag into The Middle. Thank god it was only for two nights as anymore could not have been accomplished. I understand that European hotels can have small rooms, however when you show a spacious double bedroom on you web site and don't deliver, I think you should be Outed!
