I have to say it was actually about 3/4 years ago since I stayed at this hotel but nevertheless my visit was truly pleasant. It's a little out of the way from Dam centre but easily accessible by trams which were frequent. Hotel very clean, staff welcoming and great English speaking. Plus breakfast also included in deal I booked and...

The best thing about the hotel is its proximity to the 69 bus (to the airport for access to flights and to Keukenhof Park) and two trams (7 and 14) that go directly into different parts of the city centre. I was travelling with my brother, so I also liked the fact that the placement of the two single beds...

If, like us, you prefer to get away from the giant tourist attraction that is the canal ring try this hotel. It's a quiet area with nice views of the lake, but still has enough restaurants and bars to keep you happy. It's quite a long tram journey but the staff are lovely, the rooms clean and it's all very...

This hotel did not meet my expectations considering the money spent. The room was not as described prior to booking. We knew we would have twin beds from the description prior to booking, but they were supposed to be side by side. They ended up being end to end in a very small room. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but...

Stayed here for 4 nights in April. Meets all basic expectations, cleanliness, helpful staff, nice breakfast, comfortable beds and rooms. This hotel is not in the centre of Amsterdam, but has good public transport links with trams right outside the door and a train just down the road. Travel into the city is approx 25mins from the hotel. If you...

Bathroom products are also replenished. We didn't eat in the hotel but there are three supermarkets in the immediate facility which is great for breakfast (breakfast €10...

Comfortable stay and very nice hotel; favourable position in the city to reach the centre and quite close to the airport. I would recommend this hotel to families too due to its cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Moreover it's not noisy at night and you can rest well.

A good location away from the centre of Amsterdam but had very good transport facilities to get to the city centre. Although there was a large ethnic community in the area this did not cause any problems. The staff were very friendly and helpful ,nothing was a problem to them. The rooms and Breakfast were very good with the T.V....

Stayed here for 2nights. The hotel was basic. The room is small but they have everything in the room, kettle, tolietries etc. Stayed at the first floor so people talking on the streets could be heard clearly from the room. The hotel staff is good, you can get a map from them. Wifi is good too. Location is far from...
