    Summer weekly vacations in Amsterdam

    Big plus is the hotel location. Smashing I would say. Excellent kitchen and very good service. We were notified even for the next weather change in writing the previous afternoon.


    “My tip: They could be some more organized by having ready information of the surrounding tourists interest issues, like details of car rental office. ”


    Young couples mei 2014

    excellent hotel

    Everything was great Not a singel negative thing


    “My tip: The hotel s location is really good,so you can enjoy good resturants and bars around. ”


    Older couples mei 2013

    This is a good central location to stay, with friendly helpful service

    Service especially the front desk was consistently friendly and helpful, which really made for a good visit. The location on Dam square was ideal.

    Minus points were minor - the room (305) was very small, the safe did not work and there was very little storage space. It looked out on an alley, which made it a bit dark and grim. Next time we'll try for a room at the front.

    “My tip: We really enjoyed the museum of Our Lord in the Attic ”

    High quality and reasonable cost with great service

    This was a very enjoyable stay and the service was first rate. The staff were very helpful and personable and the food was excellent. We have stayed at this hotel before and I can state that the standards have not slipped at all from our previous stay.

    “My tip: Try the breakfasts they are well worth the extra cost and the service is first class”


    Older couples mei 2012

    wonderful facility and people, key amenities missing

    Your staff people were excellent! Courteous, helpful, kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable, The room was lovely, clean, well appointed and very comfortable...loved the bed, and linens...thank you

    disappointed that at the price point, no complimentary coffee or tea in the morning, no breakfast included, and you charge for wifi, 3 euro for 30 min? crazy! It's not only the price but also inconvenient to have to go thru all the logon process. We picked you for ,your shou;ld be a cut above in this area

    “My tip: Yes, negotiate for breakfast and wifi”

    Stylish, modern hotel in the heart of Amsterdam

    Stylish, modern hotel in the heart of Amsterdam that is reasonably priced and offers really good value for money. Rooms well maintained and super clean; staff attentive and efficient.

    I think I had the worst room in the hotel, with a view of a blank wall, which was starnge considering I arrived around 2.00 pm, when plenty of other rooms should have been available. The receptionist was very polite and offered a better room next day, but who wants to move once you have unpacked? Also the safe and the coffee machine were not working properly.

    “My tip: Reduced price breakfast makes it attractive to eat in the cafe there now. Location is super convenient for tram travel.”

    Great location with great service

    Great location right on Dam Square. Room design was spacious and very appealing.

    No spa facilities. Soundproofing in rooms (to outside noise) is inadequate - due to location there is constant street noise.


    Young couples juni 2010

    Excellent hotel but all rooms are no smoking!

    Very central, very clean and friendly staff

    We were disappointed to find that all rooms are no smoking, contrary to what was said on the website


    Travelling alone mei 2010

    The bussines centre there was only 3 computers but only one was available to use.

    Excellent room, far better than rooms I have had in similar grade hotels in which I have stayed in Amsterdam. Would certainly stay again.

    price is little bit expensive, if possible 20% cheaper would have many chinese friends to stay there.

    Excellent location in the center of Amsterdam

    Outstanding Hotel - Location is in Dam Square!

    The location was perfect!!! Close to the train station and staying in close proximity to Dam Square was fabulous! The front desk provided train tickets to purchase, which made it easier when checking out, we had a flight to Denmark and didn\'t have to worry about transportation.

    I was hoping for the rate to be lower, but once arriving and receiving the excellent service, it was well worth it!

    Next time I will search for a better hotel

    Breakfast is fine. Internet access is available in business center. Location of hotel is satisfied.

    Room is too small, just like a cage. When you open the window, you can even reach the balcony of neighbour apartment by hand, which made me very depressive. No king-size bed is available, just patchwork of two single bed. No enough information are provided in reception.

    Breakfast was very good quality and quantity. Employee\'s very helpful, pleasant and courteous

    The shower head was broken and fell into the tub. The tub stopper system did not work. I appreciate that rooms are a bit smaller than at home but I felt that the room size and location was a bit pricy.

    The biggest asset for this hotel is its staff. From reception to room service/housekeeping, They ALL represented \'Hospitality personified\'


    Travelling alone juni 2008

    location to areas for sightseeing was very convenient. also proximity to a tram stop was very nice - couldn\'t be closer as it was just outside the hotel door! On arrival, consierge offered information on sights and other visitor information. Very helpful. Would consider staying here again.

    requested a smoking room and confirmed via phone but when i arrived they did not have me in a smoking room. they did move me the following day but at an additional cost - required a room upgrade. the upgraded room though was nicer than my original \"classic\" room. cost for weekend night was significantly higher than week rate.

    Excellent exercise facility Excellent internet service Very accommodating friendly staff Had all features a traveler would want Great Haring Handel in the alley next door Great access to transportation Bike rental across the street

    If you hate crowds may be too close to Dam Square and Central Station for you.
