The hotel is located outside Amsterdam's lively city. This means you have to rely on public transport into the city (you may rent a bicycle if you like). I didn't get the room facing the canal, mine faced some vents, so no view for me. The rooms were clean but tired and it's a popular hotel for tour groups. Breakfast...

The food offered in the restaurants is excellent for breakfast buffet but it can be much better for the other meals. a double bed should be a one double bed not two single beds put alongside each other, this seems to be the new trend in most hotels though.

Meeting at the reception was terribly cold and desagreable but the good-bye next morning extremly kind... Is it more reasonable to inverse, isnt'it? Amsterdam is a wonderful city with its particular charm but this hotel is a big deception not only because of the reception. Please, do better!

The hotel is very clean, very large rooms elegantly furnished and equipped bathroom with everything you need. As negative points to mention lack of refrigerator in the room (it's a 4 * hotel) and lack of windows for ventilation (in the room or bathroom), although room had two windows side. Very good service. Quite far from downtown (20 minutes by...

Arrived and hotel was 'fully booked' even though we had already paid and booked two months previously. We had not been contacted by email or telephone about any changes. Reception staff did not seem at all bothered when questioned about this. We were sent to their sister hotel down the road but were told we had been upgraded, so in...

Booked here literally last minute as we arrived to Amsterdam due to our other hotel being a nightmare. The girls were so polite, and luckily we booked the last room. It was gorgeous, really big and spacious..spotless! Bathroom was nice and big! Beds were really comfy. And it's right beside the tram and bus stop. Good stay just outside of...

Overbooked so they can send you to a fleabag hotel down the road. Do not fall for it. You'll pay, they'll say you're getting an upgrade, you aren't. They lie to your face and shamelessly send you down the road to a hotel that costs less than half the price, while insisting it's an upgrade. You will arrive at a...
