Was close to central station and dam square. Really enjoyed our stay, couldn't fault it at all. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Beds were so comfy, I slept like a baby. Would of preferred a cooked breakfast, however there was plenty to choose from.

Excellent location just minutes from Central Train station and Palace. Hotel was very clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms were as expected in the downtown area of a European City, small, but efficient and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent as well; cappuccino, pastries, yoghurt, cold cuts, breads and hot scrambled eggs.

Two things which were not that great: lack of exercise equipment (who needs a gym though, when you're in a walking city), and the tram + tourists walking past window non stop, all day. It was a...

No request is too much and everyone is friendly, positive and accommodating. Weary and travel worn we arrived at The Citadel and felt the comfort of home immediately. When in a quandary one evening in planning...

I have stayed in various hotels in Amsterdam over a number of years and the Citadel is one of the better ones, it is clean and fairly recently renovated, the rooms are not big and the beds are even smaller, but this is pretty average for the price. The room has a coffee machine and central heating that can be...

Staying in Centrum

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.
