“Not a 4”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Not a bad hotel really but so not worth its 4 star status, saying that its in a great position and worth staying there just for this reason, sure the train stations a good 20 minute walk but its also only 10 euros for a cab so get a cab :)

We have stayed four times at this hotel. We both love Amsterdam, and this hotel is brilliantly located. It is a kilometer from Central Station, the trams stop 100 mts either side of the entrance, the Flower Market is literally around the corner, the Red Light district a short stroll through excellent restuarant and bar areas, and Dam Square is a half kilometer back towards Central Station. The hotel is on the route for tram numbers 4-16-24 and 25 - buy an unlimited travel ticket from Tourist Information (GVB ) situated opposite Central Station (mind the ongoing Metro works). These tickets are available elsewhere, but this office can provide you with all the information you need for your stay - these lines also take you to the Museums, the Markets, Anne Frank House, and the Westerkirk. Vitually all other trams can be caught in and around Dam Square.

The Hotel itself is four-star. However, apart from the Bed and the Bathroom, we rarely make use of the facilities, as we always stay on a room only basis. The hotel has an excellent coffee shop, and late check-out can be arranged where possible. Amentities within easy walking distance are excellent restaurants (hence room only basis for us - Breakfast at the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) in Dam Square is brilliant); the central canals. and major shopping areas.

We went here as a couple, but it would be equally good for friends, familiy and solo. It is frequented by business people, but the business facilities are not brilliant e.g. the internet is a bit of a nightmare. However, we go to shut ourselves off from the rest of the world and enjoy the brilliant amenities that Amsterdam has to offer, whether it be sitting with coffee in a square or a bottle of wine by a canal and watching the world go by; checking out bustling markets, and quiet museums; eating in fine restaurants or simply window shopping. Needless to say we are going again later this year.

Room Tip: I think rooms are allocated on a Board basis. We are always allocated a room at the back on the firs...

Even if it's a bit further from central railway station (about 20 minutes walk) it really worth the effort. It's in the middle of everything : museum area on one hand and classical amsterdam attractions like red light district on the other.
It's clean and staff very helpful. Breakfast is also very good and is served until late in the morning.
Be prepared to ask for room in the front side of the hotel though !!! Rooms (standard rooms) are rather small but ok keeping in mind what you can find in other hotels (with no windows, dirty etc.).
It's only 200 meters away from Dam square. Other attractions (like icebar etc) are just 2 blocks away. It's also too close to many fast foods and other stores and restaurants.
Also try their massage chairs !!! The best you can have after a long day in the streets !!!

if İ travel back to Amsterdam again, İ would not stay here . We were there with friends and all work in tourism business. My friend chose here because they had nice photos of the bath rooms and rooms looked big and clean. Location wise it is very good but thats all. Wi fi is not free and you need to reconnect every half hr even from the loby where it is free. House keeping is bad, our bed was made every day but our pijamas were tucked in to the corners w/out being folded. Balcony was full with cigarette filters. İt is expencive for all these bad services.

only stayed here for one night,we didnt use the bar or any of the facilities.the rooms are nice but we were given a double rooms which had two beds pushed together.this was probably the only dissapointing thing for me as i usually end up stuck bewteen the two beds when i wake up in the morning.reception staff were friendly and we got our rooms straight away even though it was about 12pm new years day when we arrived.excellent location for shopping.they offer free wifi to customers aswell.the rooms are nice but slightly dated the bathrooms could do with a little work for the price you would pay for the rooms.amsterdam is an expensive city to stay anyway.we ate out but the rooms service menu looked great and they offered a variety of dishes and also looked to have a great tapas menu.
