Stayed here for 4 nights in April. Meets all basic expectations, cleanliness, helpful staff, nice breakfast, comfortable beds and rooms. This hotel is not in the centre of Amsterdam, but has good public transport links with trams right outside the door and a train just down the road. Travel into the city is approx 25mins from the hotel. If you...

Comfortable stay and very nice hotel; favourable position in the city to reach the centre and quite close to the airport. I would recommend this hotel to families too due to its cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Moreover it's not noisy at night and you can rest well.

A good location away from the centre of Amsterdam but had very good transport facilities to get to the city centre. Although there was a large ethnic community in the area this did not cause any problems. The staff were very friendly and helpful ,nothing was a problem to them.

Stayed here for 2nights. The hotel was basic. The room is small but they have everything in the room, kettle, tolietries etc. Stayed at the first floor so people talking on the streets could be heard clearly from the room. The hotel staff is good, you can get a map from them. Wifi is good too. Location is far from...

Bus number 69 from stop 13b straight from Schipol to outside the hotel - easy! About 25 minute journey. And then tram from outside the hotel into city centre, about 25 mins and frequent so not lacking a public transport system. Hotel ugly on the outside and pretty plain inside but spotless and decent sized room. Despite double glazing, the...

I don´t recommend this place so I will be shorter than usual. Although I wouldn´t come back it´s not all bad about this hotel. For example the rooms are decent, they have parking (15 EUR a day), it´s just 20 minutes to the city centre by tram and receptionists were great. If you are into a multi-culti experience this is...

The hotel from the outside doesn't look great however once inside the lobby and rooms were nice and clean. The room itself was standard size with a good bed the only let down was the small sizes of pillows and the lack of tea bags being British I like more than just one small cup of tea. Also some one...
