I cant beleive what i have just read. I wasnt being overly paranoid at all. I stayed in The Waterfront hotel in Amsterdam. Was charged 225 Euro's for a double room. Since reading there website that room should have only cost 135 Euro's. Only paid it because we had spent 3 hours looking for somewhere to stay. The room was...

Booking three rooms for a family stay by email was easy, but because of our desire to all be on the same floor, we had two pleasant double rooms but the room at the back was appalling. It was damp and stank. The cleaner, obviously trying to help this left the window open which we did not appreaciate for security...

We had a fantastic time at the hotel Waterfront in April 2007...The staff was friendly and helpful before and during our stay, our room was beautiful-we actually stayed in the room they show on the website with the tub bathroom....Lovely bay window with canal view, and the weather was perfect for opening the windows and watching the boats go by...

We stayed at the waterfront hotel and it was great. we had read bad reviews about it , but it is now under new ownership/ management and you could'nt ask for better. The staff was excellent, the little breakfast was nice . You need to pay the extra for the canal view, it makes all the difference in the world....

My partner and I booked the hotel for a weekend break. We were welcomed quite enthusiastically by the owner and asked for our credit card on arrival. I noticed that he wanted to charge us for a higher amount than agreed (ie credit card surcharge) and agreed to pay cash the following morning. That was lucky. When we got to...

My wife and I spent 4 nights there at the end of June. In all of our travels in Europe, this hotel would rank at the bottom of our list. Bathroom trash was not emptied the entire time we were there. We wondered if there was any cleaning of the room at all. There were room darkening curtains on only...

I had a reservation for three nights in a canal-view room, which I confirmed before leaving the States. The first two nights were for one weekend and the last night was for Saturday night the following weekend. When we arrived (after walking through the rain), we were informed that they didn't have any canal-view rooms left for that night. So,...

The hotel is okay but it has problems and it seems hard to justify the price. Comfortable beds, small rooms, but furnished decently. Nice breakfast but not served until 9 am. Not exactly great timing for go-getter tourists who want to be first in line at museums. That said, we found that nothing else opened that early in Amsterdam anyway...

this hotel definitely gets mixed reviews.The room was tiny,even for europe,but the bed was comfortable. The location was great during the day because it was right along the canal with great access to cafes, shops and trolleys. It was also back to back with a dance club that plays loud music till 4 in the morning,so unless you're a night...

Management response:

Firstly could the person who wrote this review please contact the hotel so we can address these problems. With regards to dance or night clubs , there are none of these in this quiet area and there is a strict 11pm curfew on any noise. Also I would like to say that there is postively no way that the owners...

This was the worst stay ever in Amsterdam. We usually stay at Hotel Wiechmann, which is wonderfull!. Mr.Ham, owner of the Waterfront told us that as he had plumbing problems the promised room was no longer available. He then put us in a dingy little room way up in the attic with no view what so ever, terrible. And now...
