We stayed for 4 days. Location of hotel was just great - within 10 minutes of the major museums. Restaurants, nightlife and transportation (buses, trolleys and canal rides were just outside). The hotel restaurant was restored to its original look from the 1800s, with great windows, chandeliers and bar. Great Breakfasts - Make certain to include the price of breakfast...

Just in the best location for a sightseeing visitor... A wonderful, historic and elegant period piece. The staff were excellent, friendly, welcoming, and courteous. Sadly the room was a bit tired, and needed a refresh, large comfortable bed, but the carpet old and the room so dark we used our iphone torch to look for things on the floor! One...

The hotel is quite striking looking from the outside and the restaurant is also very grand looking. We had coffee there a few months ago and thought what a great place to stay so we booked it.

Stayed over 13th & 14th Nov. Ok room with a big comfortable bed, no view unfortunately. Beautiful building and great staff. Central Location. The bar is well worth a visit. Taxi rank and canal cruise operator right outside.

Location was great, with access to many food and shopping options. Walks to places are 10-15 minutes' walk away, be it premium or high street shopping, museum hopping. I gave the tram pass a miss since the hotel seems to be at the heart of where I go. The room was facing the canal and it is great to be...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay and review posting. We feel obliged to add to your enthusiastic review that NOT all rooms are large and with canal view. So we would like to emphasize that features like this should be specifically booked when required. We are sorry to hear that you felt rather unsafe in Amsterdam during the evening....

Too long spent at check-in, room small and not particularly pleasant, breakfast very overpriced for a poor buffet and grumpy staff, the other staff helpful and pleasant. Low to average value for money.

“Ask for a room that does not face the square because it is noisy at night with all the cafes, bars and restaurants. Canal view would probably be quieter.”
