Reviewed 8 December 2017

Stayed here for 2 days. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. Very central location with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, perfect for a short sightseeing trip. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended to friends.

We just returned from a long weekend break to Amsterdam and stayed at this hotel, it was my husbands 50 th and the staff were fantastic, especially Lisa any questions we asked she would help us, always lovely and cheery and helpful, The hotel is very central on Damstraat only about 10/15 min walk from train station, straight up Main Street so easy to find, Hotel is nice, more like a b & b if it was in the uk, rooms are nice clean and bright, very small though, the shower room is very small about the size of a large double wardrobe... but the room served its purpose because to be honest your not in your hotel much as there is so much to see and do, the only down side is the size of the duvets!! Pls invest in duvets that fit the double beds, we had 3 singles on our bed.. Also double check if breakfast is on your itinerary as Expedia said it was when I was on an internet chat to them, but when we got there it wasn’t! So make sure you have it in writing. Although the manager was very nice about it and only charged us minimum amount it still should not off happened, but besides that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.. Thank you

We stayed the the quadruple bedroom located on the first floor and the beds were very comfortable. This hotel suited us very well as it was so close to all of the attractions and in particular Dam square. We found the hotel to be a bit loud but that is expected due to the location. The staff were very helpful and they allowed us to use the luggage storage room free of charge when we checked out as our flight was later in the day.
I would 100% return to this hotel if I visit Amsterdam again.

I stayed at the hotel as a couple last year, it was great, very central and within walking distance from many attractions, and I've just today booked again as a couple to stay there for another few nights. Steep stairs but that's a traditional Amsterdam building for you. Breakfast was good and the reception staff extremely accommodating. Yes I would certainly stay there again, as indeed I have just booked to do so!

We booked this hotel through a travel agent and to be honest was a bit worried by some of the reviews however we were pleasantly surprised. This is a traditional Amsterdam building and our room was on the fourth floor which meant 8 flights of stairs however we were moved to the 2nd floor in request and our cases were moved for us. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was immaculately clean and although a bit basic the beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was fine and basic. The hotel was right on dam square on a side street and a few minutes from the shops and red light district. The walk from central train station was 10 minutes as was Anne franks house. Perfect to explore on foot and as long as you don’t mind the stairs I would recommend

I stayed in this hotel for a business trip with 3 other colleagues and had the worst nights sleep! My room was on the fifth floor (up some very steep steps) it was boiling hot with a faulty fan, because my room was so hot I slept with the window open and consequently was woken up at 5 am with busy traders starting their day with banging and crashing. Even with the window closed you could still here the noises. Reception staff were rude and generally an unpleasant stay

We appreciate your feedback. We are located in the center of Amsterdam, which, can at times be very busy. We can only hope that guests have read the description of our hotel and the location of our hotel prior to making a reservation with us, as being in the city center is not for everyone. We are sorry to hear that your experience did not match your expectations.

Recently come back from a one night stay in Amsterdam and had a great time. The hotel was modern and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Even though it was a 2 star it was better than some of the 3 stars I've stayed in.
