Nice updated hotel. Front desk was very helpful in our late check in. Bed was very comfortable, i personally didnt like the pillows but oh well. Our room had a view of the canal. The windows are old so noise does get it at times. But its close to everything, clubs, restaurants,grocery stores. Great time

I stayed here with 6 friends split over 3 rooms...our room was really small compared to the other 2 rooms but I would say the previous reviews on here are wrong. I'm assuming the hotel has had some renovation work recently because it was a smart, clean hotel.its in a fantastic location just behind rembrandt sq and opposite a tram...

After reading the reviews, I started to be seriously worry about this hotel. I was very suprised in nice way. Receptionist are very nice and friendly. I had room 205 with nice view to the Keisersgrat. Well, the room is a bit small, but totally ok, with nice furniture and good bathroom. Room was probably after reconstruction and was very...

Good location...for the rest it's like living into Tyler Darden's house. Price is not bad compared to Amsterdam standards but not cheap anyway. I loved Amsterdam and i'll go back but I will stay in a different place.

If you are visiting and looking for a place to lay your head down then this is it, but don't expect anything more. The lift was not working at all, and by looking at older reviews I would say its out for a while. Luckily we only had a small bag each, but it can become a problem if you...

Having just come back from Amsterdam I have to give The Armada Hotel a full rating . It had the most fantastic views of the river with pretty boats and houses . It was cheap and the room was clean and functional with tv, shower , radiator (which might I add was switched on ) comfortable beds and very helpful...

I've stayed in worse hotels, but not for decades. This hotel was over-priced and had many faults: 1. Though we'd paid in advance the stand-in receptionist tried to charge us for the full amount, not just the city tax. 2. The lift was out of order in November (another reviewer reported this in July) and it was 60 steps to...
