I stayed here for two nights in November. The staff are lovely, the breakfast is very good and the rooms are well maintained and modern. Only let down is the location (roughly 25 euro to get into the centre City) but I would definetly return here again

No noise from other rooms. the housekeeping did a really nice job making the room perfect clean every day. The hotel is not located...

This was probably the worst stay on our 13-day around the world trip. 1. Our heater didn't work. The comforter was pretty thin. That was a COLD night! 2. We told the front desk about our dilemma and they just shrugged. 3. When we came back to the hotel, we asked the front desk if our friend had checked out...

The building is wonderful and the hospitality very pretty. The room was big and comfortable what a pity for the cleaning, it was rather dirty! Located far from the center but the bus station is in front of the hall.

We were mugged outside this hotel! As soon as we arrived we knew this was a very bad area - which the police later confirmed. There is high crime here and it is over 20 minutes on a bus to the centre. Because of the unease we felt staying here we felt that taxis were the only safe option to...

Hotel ok, clean and reasonably comfortable but neither bar nor restaurant open and hotel 20/30 min bus or tram ride from centre of Amsterdam. Tip is to use buses or trams which run from end of road No 14 tram into Dam Square or No 21 bus to central station. Bus also goes across road from hotel straight to airport...

The stay at this hotel was pleasant. The rooms were clean, comfortable. We just expected that from the hotel. There is no mini-fridge in the room and instead of a double bed we had two beds united, but we managed to work through that. We went to Amsterdam to visit the city so we did not have so many expectations...
