A little more expensive but i booked via Amsterdam Hotels travel agent and i got the room half price. Good local restaurant down stairs and great central location to Dam Square. Big macs next door if you cannot do without a burger. Rooms well fitted out with all the usual 4 star comforts. 200 yards waly from central station.

We found ourselves at this hotel after arriving at the Swissotel next door and finding that they were fully and our booking of 3 weeks previous had been cancelled! That is a review in itself..... We initially were given a large but very clinical renovated room on the first floor. The room had some peculiarities in that the bed could...

No this is not the set for porn movies but a respectable 100 years old hotel founed when these kind of movies where still inexistant :) .

We chose this for four days pre-cruise this past August because of reviews here and the fact that the management replies to all reviews, which indicates they care. The hotel is in a great location less than a block from Dam Square and a short walk down the Damrak from Central Station. We walked it with a ton of luggage...

Having quiet often passengers going or coming from a cruise we are ineed used and amused when we see the huge suitcases they are carrying.

I'm a frequent traveller and recently spent three nights in this over-rated hotel. Having stayed at other hotels in the area I definitively expected more for €190 per night. My room was recently renovated (I believe) but completely void of charm and character. It was so small that there were hardly any room to sit at the cheap melamine desk...

I sincerely regret that we could not meet your expectations and that you found this one of the worst experiences you ever had.

We have just stayed at this hotel for the second time, and enjoyed our stay just as much as we did the first time we stayed there when we visited Asterdam in 2010.

The staff at de Roode Leeuwenhoek were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was worth the extra 15 euro since it had great variety and a coffee machine that allowed unlimited lattes and cappuccinos.

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
