Great location but room was average. Fit for purpose if you are intending to spend most of the time exploring. Bonus being you also get 5 euros towards breakfast in local area. Receptionist was great and very friendly

Nice people, really welcoming. The room was really clean but we were on the street side and I could barely sleep any of the 4 nights I spent there. It's really close to a place with bars/restaurants/nightclubs, there were music and screaming/drunk people a large part of the night, and not only the weekend... The WiFi was also dropping every...

Everything in the room was clean and tidy. There were no noise from the outside, although the bars of the street were really noisy. The only inconvenient is that there was no lift, and our room was on the second floor (plus one floor from the street to the reception), but this is something normal with the buildings located in...

Stayed in this lovely place on 3 different occassions. Great location, close to everything. Everyone was helpful and very friendly. Rooms were cleaned and aired daily, WIFi was certainly a plus. I'll be back for sure.

The room was exactly as described. Clean and smoke-free. The location of the hotel is awesome as it's located in the heard of Amsterdam and you can go anywhere on foot. There wasn't any noise at all, we were in room 10.

I ended up staying here after arriving in Amsterdam and being booked into another 2 star hotel. That first place was so bad I had to leave and desperately looked for somewhere else or go home and I was supposed to be here for 6 days. A friend sent me the link for the Imperial and I arrived at 10am...

We had a lovely room on the 2nd floor in the back where we could open the windows and enjoy the air even though it was a hot week in Amsterdam. The room was large, comfortable, and just about perfect. Peter, who owns the hotel and is frequently the person at the front desk was absolutely the best help in...
