Friends november 2014
The rooms looked exactly how they were shown online, the beds were extremely comfortable and the service was great.
If you have a heavy suitcase hope your not on the top floor, there is no lift and a lot of steps but apart from that it was great
“My tip: We really enjoyed Amsterdam, speak to some locals about what they think would be a good places to visit as it is all very overwhelming.”

The location was great, we stayed in a room on the first floor, exactly what I expected from the pictures and what we knew before we went there. The staff is super friendly.
nothing negative in my opinion. We had what we paid for.
Friends maart 2013
The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Each member of the staff was very kind and helpful, they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and find our way around the city. The location was right in dam square, a very close walk from centraal station, it was easy to get everyone on foot or by tram.
It was slightly more than we wanted to pay but we did love the hotel and the staff and location were great.
“My tip: We went to the Anne Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, and the Heineken Experience. All very tourist things to do but all very worth it in my opinion, I loved everyone of them.”

Hotel was quite noisy

Location location location. This is really what you are paying for. Front desk was very nice and helPful and a bag room to keep your bags in
I cannot overstate how hot our room was. Even with the door open and a fan blowing we still couldn't sleep. Also it is a very small room with not a lot of room to put your bags. Tiny shower.

Very loud! The location has its tribute. Party noice from the street until 3:30 am and cleaning and delivery noice from 6:00 am on.
Families with older children maart 2011
It is very conveniently located.
The bathroom is so small that it was difficult to keep my clothes dry when I take a shower. The furniture in the room was quite basic and really much used. The carpet needed changing or at least a good clean.

Excellent Male receptionist.... always pleased to welcome you.... such a great guy...who worked long hours
Lack of replacement towels... even though I stayed for four days

the bed & pillows are comfortable, clean, no funny smell or bugs. the location is very convinience - near to tourist attractions, plenty of food around, close to train station, not too near to redlight districts but not too far so can walk comfortably and safely if want to view/experience the redlight environments.
the size of room is small but not a surprise because we read the review beforehand but it is ok for us (average asian size/height). water pressure was relative low but manageable perhaps because our room was at 4th floor. Climbling up the steep small stairs can be challenging especially with heavy bagpacks but the plus point is - quiet -away from streets sounds.

Location right in the middle of the excitement of Amsterdam Central.
Families with older children juni 2010
The location was excellent! The reception staff were friendly, professional and very helpful. The hotel was well maintained and serviced regularly. All in all, our room was just right.
Street side noise - not unbearable, but present. Steps might be a problem for someone with mobility issues - not horrible for Amsterdam, but certainly something to consider.

Great location, excellent staff, good value for money
The room was very warm, the fan provided helped, but I'm sure it wouldn't be enough in the height of summer.
Friends december 2009

Excelent location, right in the heart of Amsterdam

Center of the city. Exellent localisation.
Very little room. Leaky windows and noise from the street. The bed is very flaccid.
Travelling alone juli 2009
The location was excellent, and the reception staff were most helpful. The room was clean.
The room was very small. It has the tiniest shower that I have ever used. It did get quite noisy during the night. I had to borrow the remote control for the TV, and because of the way the TV was positioned, it was very difficult to view.
Friends juli 2009
Bed sheets and towels were really clean and perfectly white, not a single stain (could not say the same for the curtains, that were really dirty). Also, no mice whatsoever, which was absolutely great!!! Couldn\'t be any more central, perfect location. All in all, very basic, but a million times cleaner than another 4 hotels I have stayed in during the years. Staff at the reception very helpful, polite and lovely.
We were on the third floor, three very steep flight of stairs (52 steps in total, we counted them!), but that is typical of Amsterdam. If you have problems with stairs you should ask for a room on the ground/first floor, regardless of which hotel you stay in.

Very happy with the accommodation and service provided. Appreciated the friendly staff.
One small thing. No soap supplied in the room.

Location is perfect
Smell of cigaretes in room, Terible smell in bathroom!
Friends maart 2009
The hotel is in a great location and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately my matress was alot bigger than the base so this resulted in an uncomfortable sleep. One day I came back and noticed blood on my cover, then the next two nights there was sick on there also, which I can assure you wasn\'t me. I also found Pizza and chips under my bed which again wasn\'t me. But as mentioned above the staff were great, and the two people i travelled with had no complaints about their bed, it seems I was the unfortunate one. The hotel was by no means the worse hotel you could stay at whilst in Amsterdam though.

Great location and very friendly staff. Would definitely stay there again
Bring shampoo and soap since they don\'t supply you with anything but hand soap. The rest you have to pay for.

Amazing location, couldn\'t be more central. Good clean room, same about the bathroom. A satisfactory experience.
View from the window (i was in the smokers\' wing) very poor but surely that\'s not a major problem? Maybe for the price you could expect a little more in the room in terms of extras (minibar, dvd player, cable tv..)
