The hotel is in a great location for exploring the city. I was surprised in the size of the room (room 5). Although there was a double bed it's best description would be that of a storage room. The security bolt on the inside of the door was faulty, on reporting it to reception I was told they knew about...

Hotel prices in Amsterdam are ridiculous so, I'd say that this is hotel is one of the most economical you can ger and its location in the Amstel canal is fantastic. However, you need to be able to climb the very steep stairs (no lift) and carry your suitcases. We were in a sizeable room for 4 people in the...

Friendly staffing, but not Dutch talking. Bed is good, wifi as well. Room was a bit old furniture, mainly carpet. No breakfast served in a lounge, only served on room, and not before 830am during the week. The place is great, at the Amstel river and in the center.

Booked on a mobile app 1 hour before turning up, place was clean large enough. I would recommend staying here if on a budget. Car Parking service was good - private company collects your car n drops it the next day for the cost of €30. All staff friendly an spoke good English
