Loved this little hotel, two stops by train up from Central Amsterdam and the cost was low, compared to the Central hotels. Only problem was plastic mattress pads made us sweat all night. Hopefully they'll replace them, before we come back. Definitely a great place to stay and see Amsterdam for the price, make sure you get the 10 euro...

Staff were amazing. Great location. Next to supermarket & railway. Stayed in a suite. Loads of room. The only thing I can knock was the pillows are way too small. Also could do with some drawers beside the bed instead of the little stools.

Location - Chose that for it's proximity to Zaandam and really, it is just 2 stops away from Amsterdam Central. Convenient location in between the airport and the city without the crowd.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are very glad to hear you liked it. As far as the snotty service is concerned, do note that this is for sure not our regular standard. We have meanwhile fixed the bathroom issue already.

One night for the family (2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby) after having spent the day in Keukenhof. Hotel ideally placed to visit Zaan area and the staff were incredibly helpful. There is a supermarket across the large car park (avoid driving into this one as it is paid and hotel has its own car park on the other...

Thank you for staying with us during our high season. We have indeed more discounts available in other times of the year. However, compared to the hotels downtown, there is still a huge difference in rates. And parking is mostly free with us.

Modern designed hotel. Very friendly staff. Clean and cosy rooms. Next to station with fast access to centre of Amsterdam and could leave car for free. Restaurant with good food and some local specialties. Great place for a short stay.

Nice hotel with beautiful rooms and awesome food. Of course it is expensive but the plates are so big! We stayed in the 5th floor and had extra sports running the stairs - but of course there is a life.

Dear Alina, thank you for staying with us. Awesome that you liked it that much! We will have a new menu shortly with even more lower priced dishes. As we do not have a gym, a room on the 5th is a great exercise when you do not use the elavator; very healthy!

Stayed at the hotel from the 13th to 15th April. My daughter loves the mini playground! The staffs are helpful and friendly, the location is excellent.

This was a one night business trip booked by my client. The hotel was very clean and the reception staff extremely helpful. The room was more than adequate for one night, with the bed being comfortable and the bathroom feeling newly decorated.
