            Very central position for do everything. Good value for money.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            The hotel is great for city tour - its very centrical - 10 metres to the Dam square, right by the Red lights district. It's very clean, the staff is really very very helpful. Beds are really comfortable. There is no breakfast hall, but they can service it to your room, and there are lots of cafes right next door, one is really great - with pastry, we were having delicious strawberry tarts every morning :)

            The baths are a bit shabby, and no bath accessories, and if you have trouble climbing the stairs - keep in mind that there is no elevator, but it wasn't a problem for us.

          • Couple

            The best thing about the hotel was the reception staff. We were alwsys met with a smile.

            I was extremely disappointed with our room. The pictures if the hotel are extreamly misleading. The bathroom/ wet room was not cleaned to a high standard and smelt if damp. The first thing that hit us when we walked into the room was the smell of damp.

          • Single
            7.8

            Fine place, close to city center and central station. Everything is reachable with walk, most interesting places are around within 5-10 minutes walk.

            Rooms are small, but enough to stay as tourist. You will be out in the city anyway...

          • Single
            7.8

            The room was comfortable,only one fault was the bathroom sink was a bit too close to the toilet,staff were friendly and helpful.all in all a good experience

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            The staff was very courteous and willing to assist in every possible way.The hotel is strategically located in the very center of old Amsterdam within minutes walk from every major attraction.

            Very small room. No elevator. Unpleasant smell in the bathroom (probably from the sewer system) in room number 20.

          • Single
            5.0

            Its location is good for Red Light District and some other nice parts of Amsterdam.

            The room I had was close the striars and when someone was walking on them it was very noisy. There were some spiders in the room. The printer of the reception could not print when I wanted to print my boarding pass (but they gave the money of ineternet and print back!)

          • Single
            6.2

            Nice central location. A better standard than similar priced accommodation. Welcomed double glazing as it does get noisy with a front facing room.

            Overpriced for what you get - although that's hardly the fault of this hotel in particular, is more a statement on Amsterdam accommodation in general. And... Asking customers for 18 Eros for the in-house purchase of a single adaptor plug? Unbelievable!

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Great central location. Comfortable bed. Clean rooms. Very friendly staff.

            Usual small rooms for Amsterdam, this is my 5th visit and they are mainly tiny rooms. No tea and coffee making facilities, although a machine in reception made good coffee, 3 floors down! This hotel was not cheap, Amsterdam is getting more and more expensive, it is starting to price its self out of the market.

          • Group of friends
            4.2

            The stairs were very dangerous and no lift to get your suitcase to the top -We were right at the top 60 steps ..There was no breakfast included in the price which we felt was not good value for money - Our Room was a smoking room and the smell of smoke was very off putting as neither of us smoked. The room was very basic for 75.00 euro a night. If you look at the website the hotel looks great and this was one of the reason we booked this hotel as we felt it was a bit more upmaket. We were disappointed when we saw the room.

            Location of the hotel

            Paying the WIFI (5 €/day). Breakfast expensive (7.5 €) for a single OJ and a piece of bread. Luggage storage is 2 €.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Very central

            Due to old bulding and also quality of the windows it was to much noise from the street during late night / early morning. Could have been helped without too much cost and work I guess??

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            The location of the hotel was literally less than 100 meters away from Dam square, which makes it very easy to access most areas. The staff was friendly and helpful.

            The toilet cleaniless could be improved.

          • Single
            7.4

            room starting by number 5 are located in another building in the hotel surround. Great because you don't have to pass in front on reception desk--> independant. Location are at 200 m from the red light district but not to noisy. The underground parking located at 300 m is very expensive. I paid 50 € for 12 hours.
