Amazing location, very friendly staff. Went with my husband & friends for his birthday. Staff couldn't do enough to help. Great location for shops and train station. Rooms basic but very clean. Will definitely book again

Polite, helpful staff. Continental breakfast was yummy. So convenient to restaurants, riverboat cruises, and even the red light district should you choose to venture there. The elevator was a little scary at times and our room was a bit outdated with absolutely no view of anything other than an empty courtyard and other people's rooms. We spent two nights here...

We have been to many best westerns and this was one, that did not live up to the high standard that we have come to expect from the company! We were very disappointed by the standard of service we experienced here. Although the location is good, the price of a room is extortionate for the tiny pokey showers and toilet....

Great location, friendly helpful staff. We really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was simple, but adequate. We would like to thank Zsoka for all of her help. She always had good ideas for restaurants and sights. .

Good hotel, great position in the city. Worth staying if you are in Amsterdam especially if you want to visit the city itself. Staff is polite and the internet is great. Only negative thing is the bathroom, it was slightly outdated and could use a little renovation. The rooms however are great and very modern. To be revisited.

This hotel is 1 min walk to Dam Square, so Amsterdam Central and the surrounding areas are your main objective, then it is a great place to stay. However, you don't have a view to the square as such! The Amsterdam Central is a 10 min walk or a 2 min bus ride to the hotel. Lots of eats and...

This hotel is in a pedestrian street in the heart of Amsterdam, a few steps from Dam Square. The Connexxion shuttle from the airport was round trip for €27. It dropped me off 20' from the front door, and picked me up 3 minutes away. The room was a bit dated. Overheated until I figured out how to turn off...

I stayed at this property for two nights in October and was pleasantly surprised. We understood that it was situated on a pedestrian walkway and weren't sure how far it would be to bring our luggage, but it was only a few feet. The hotel is clean and tidy. The breakfast was excellent with a lovely selection of breads, cheeses,...

The Best Western Dam Square Inn is a great place to stay, it couldn't be any more central and offers plenty of comfort. My room was first floor across from a bar and coffeeshop but there was no problem with noise, the room was warm and the bed super soft, just what was needed after an evening cruise in december....

Hotel very clean, staff so friendly, breakfast typical continental style plenty available bread rolls etc always fresh. Great central location off Dam Square right in the heart of City. Drawback: the noise from outside, we had room 117 at the front on an alleyway and the noise at night was a real problem, a brown café opposite which attracted noisy...

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
