Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here with my spouse yesterday, for three days. It was a great stay, but the room made me feel really claustrophobic. The bathroom was made with glass walls, therefore, a see through bathroom. I didn't like that. The extension for the kettle was dangling and would drop behind the spiral stairs every time I used it. It was...

The hotel is in a very convenient location. Walking distance to the city center but still in a quiet neighboorhod. The park outside was a great add on if it would habe been nice weather. Very friendly staff. Great food and drinks. Would definitely recommen going there.

Easy to get to hotel, the number 9 tram from the railway station took us 6 mins walk away. We walked through the park where the entrance of the hotel looks over. Friendly welcome by concierge and girls on desk. Room was really cool and modern. Our room was like a mini suite. Fridge in room so we kept our...

The hotel was a great choice and really improved our stay in Amsterdam. It is really stylish and trendy which I appreciate. It is also very clean which I find very important. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is slightly outside of the centre but you could walk in 15-20 mins. Trams are difficult to navigate but...

The hotel was so modern and spacious. Our hotel room was amazing, the stairs leading up to the bedroom made it feel so cosy! Just a short walk from the tram stop, which took about 5-10 mins to the centre. Breakfast was nice and the service was great. Will be staying here if I visit Amsterdam again!

Overall my stay was pleasant. Room service could've taken better care of cleaning the floors. Some of the single level rooms smell like sewage/mold. The guests that joined me had to change rooms a total of 3xs because the scent was unbearable. This was annoying for me as they had to hold their luggage in my room as they waited...

Good location. Rooms were amazing. Staff weren't friendly, you can hear noise through the walls in the rooms, very loud in the night time slamming doors in the corridor. Sheets were not cleaned the three nights I stayed there by the cleaner

nice surrounding but far from the city center Room amenities were poor and toilet had a standard glass window for everybody to see. The hot water did not work well in the first room and they changed rooms, slightly upgraded. This took take and by the time it was sorted, the restaurants had all closed.
