Located in a quiet area, this Hotel is very clean, and the Staff are friendly and very helpful. The Tram stop is close by. The room was lovely and a big bathroom with fab shower. We did not have breakfast here so can't comment. The little gift on leaving was a very nice thought. Thank you for a great stay.

Very good price performance. Such a very friendly services, at the counter, during breakfast. This is how service should be! At at the end a small present to take at home. How client friendly. The hotel is located in a very quiet street in the city center. Just 15 minutes walk from the shoping area in Amsterdam. Go there!

Super helpful and friendly staff, amazing breakfast, quiet and clean room. Located in a quiet area, but close enough to walk into the city center. Tickets for trams, museums and such is available to buy (even with a small discount) in the reception.

As a frequent visitor to Amsterdam this hotel ticks all the boxes. Clean hotel, friendly staff, good breakfast, convenient location in a quiet area. What more could one want for a reasonable price? I love to walk from the hotel up Reguliersgracht through historic Grachtengordel to the Old Centre.

Friendly staff in hotel. Reasonably priced and room is clean but small. Location of hotel strategic and safe. Ideally located. Easy accessability to transportation by bus. Walking distance to Heineken Experience, Canal Ride and AlberCup Market. 10 mins walk to Vondel Park. 20 mins to Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Musuem.
