    The restaurant, De Roode Leeuw was really good.

    The maids did NOT clean the toliets. The storage area where we kept our bikes was steeped in the odor of urine.

    “My tip: Great location with everything we wanted nearby. Would have liked it to be a it cleaner.”

    Comfort room

    Perfect location. Tram stop outside. Near to Railwaystation.

    The room was very cramped. it was difficult to move there, there was very little floor space.I could have understood this if it had been a budget room but it was a comfort room. The toilet was also very narrow and so was the shower.

    Ask for the Renovated Superior Room

    Restaurant service and food very good.

    I booked 2 Superior rooms. One was superior and acceptable, but the other was up a narrow flight of stairs (no one offered to help with suitcases) and the room was not identical to the first "superior" room. I was expecting that the rooms would be identical in size if not in layout. They were not of the same value yet we were charged the same price. When asked about the discrepancy, we were advised that the inferior room was deemed as superior but hadn't undergone renovations ye

    “My tip: if booking superior room, ask if it is one that has been renovated or not.”

    Another good stay in Amsterdam

    I was in a newly remodeled room this time which was very nice, quiet and comfortable. The hotel is very convenient to both the train station and the sights; it\'s just around the corner from Dam Square and about a ten minute walk from the station which is at the end of the street.

    “My tip: If you need wireless internet, ask for an id and password at the desk. The interface will come up with an option to enter a last name and room number to charge internet to your room, but that doesn\'t work - the access is free with the code.”


    Travelling alone oktober 2011

    All except location: miserable

    Only the location

    Size of room; water stains on ceiling; uncomfortable bed; shower open (no curtain etc); the elevator is catastrophically slow. Conclusion; never stay here again!

    Lone Traveller

    This hotel is in the perfect location. The staff are friendly and the hotel was extremely accomodating when dealing with any queries I had prior to my arrival.


    Travelling alone juni 2011

    Exceptionally well located within easy walking distance of Central Satation (five blocks up Damrak), great bars and restaurants and the Red Light District, same quailty rooms as nearby hotels that are prcied much higher.

    The senior staff in the hotel restaurant were "haughty" (while the junior staff were exceptionally nice a pleasant).

    Location, price/quality

    I will use this hotel again...and again....and....

    Smoking rooms........... More to be said?..... OK. The room was small but good, clean, well prepared etc. The booking was efficient and check-in was quick and easy, the check-out simalarly quick, easy and painless (even VERY early morning due to flight from Schipol)

    The room was small but that's normal for hotels in Amsterdam. If you don't like small rooms go to the Marriot for 3 x the price.

    An enjoyable, comfortable stay in an amazing location.

    Location - fantastic. I had a view of Damrak and Dam Square. very clean room and comfotable beds Access to printers was excellent Friendly and helpful staff.

    smallest bathroom I have ever been into. Shower water on the floor was a concern. Indicating that internet access was a chargable item was odd, especially when it did not incur a charge. Maybe this needs to be clarified for guests. Perhaps the charge is for those using hotel computers and not for wi-fi users

    Convenience in amsterdam

    Location - right around the corne from Dam Square, directly across the street from the Bijenkorf department store and just up the street from Centraal Station. It's convenient for sightseeing in the city or for going out and exploring in the trains. The restaurant is also good and there are many other options within walking distance. The staff are efficient. I've stayed here many times and plan to again.

    Small, very slow elevator


    Young couples november 2010

    Cheerful, but not cheap

    Location, clean.

    Price. Advertised as a 4 star hotel... 3 at most

    Convenient and comfortable

    Convenient to Centraal Station and the old town - just around the corner from Dam Square. Good breakfast. Efficient staff. I have stayed here many times over the years and will continue to do so.



    Other september 2010

    ok, but don't trust parking company

    close to the city centre

    no parking, some company has been called by hotel stuff to pick-up my car, there were some sweets in one of the boxes in the car, all of them have been stolen !!!

    Solid Two-Star Hotel at Four-Star Prices

    The location is very central. Rooms are basic but adequate. Nothing amazing, just your basic European city hotel.

    The hotel is too expensive. If the price were 40% less, it would be a good buy. And they really gouge you on the extras: 15 euros a day for Internet? In this day and age, wifi and Ethernet access is free in good hotels. Breakfast in the hotel is 29 euros--should be included. Fortunately there are decent breakfast options a few blocks away, but still.

    Comfortable but it smells stale

    Very central

    Smoking Rooms smell disgusting - even for a smoker. Try fumigation to rid the STALE atmosphere
