Hotel's location is very good, just three main canals away from the city center. You can take trams 1-2-5 just around the corner and the Museum Quarter is a 5 minute walk away. Staff was very cordial and friendly. Their assistance was greatly appreciated. However rooms are rather small and the hotel is quite expensive for its facilities and rooms.

Hi, decided on this hotel after studying all the reviews on TripAdvisor, and wasn't disappointed. The hotel is situated at the better end of the city on a canal where the tour boats go quietly up and down with stops immediately in front of the hotel, along with the trams into town. Really near the main museums, we walked to...

Located on Leidseplein, makes it central for either museum district or the city centre. Great transport links so easy to get to and from and also from the airport. Rooms are very comfortable but I would request the canal view as it is quieter. Staff very friendly and helpful. Makes the stay in Amsterdam special for us every time.

I will keep my review short - there was a mouse in my room. The staff were extremely helpful and moved me I think the damage was done. The hotel as a building is stunning. It is steeped in history but I found it dark and very gloomy.

What can I say, excellent hotel! I went here with my partner for a long weekend to experience Amsterdam & the location of this hotel was ideal! Its located next to the canal and plenty of museums, bars and shopping close by. We never ate in the restaurant but the menu looked excellent! Our room was clean and spacious and...

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2017 and we were really happy with our choice of hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by some really friendly and smiling members of staff. We were also given an upgrade to a junior suite (thank you Claire) for no extra cost, which was a real treat. The room we had was...

I took a balcony room (cruical for smokers) and the room has very pampering bath tubs. The rooms are clean, staff are kind and the service is exquisite. Room is in good taste, king sized bed is very comfortable and I recommend asking for it in particular.

Great location and very welcoming staff. Not cheap but quite classy . We were next to the canal and so great for a boat trip and we were also in a good position in terms of the museums and the nightlife of Amsterdam. Very spacious room

The most beautiful building + crazy town = good times. So here's The Real on The American: it's all about the ambiance there. Sitting in their main restaurant instantly makes u part of The Lost Generation (if u don't know what that is than open a book people!). U can imagine Hemingway sitting next to one of the enormous windows...

The reception was very accommodating to expand us into a larger room at the last moment. Location is perfectly situated in the city and we had walking access to so much. The attached cafe is lovely and we look forward to a great breakfast in the morning.
