Reviewed 31 July 2017

ocation is perfect, if you are aiming to visit the park, museums and at the same time close enough to the center of city, this is a perfect hotel.
Rooms are in the first floor since the upper floors are penthouses, windows looking for the interior garden.
Rooms are clean, quite and peaceful to rest but just ten minutes walk you are in the center of the city. We love that part so much. Beds are so comfortable so you can rest the whole day of walking by sleeping at nights.
Bathroom and shower is also clean new and perfect.
Breakfast is good enough for such a hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Penthouse with a view. The view wasn't anything special or breathtaking but it was nice to have access to the balcony.
Room and bathroom were very good, bed was very comfortable.
Wifi is fast and reliable even on the upper floors.
I suggest to not add breakfast to your booking as it didn't look anything special and there are several quaint cafes and bakeries along the road to choose from.
Location is not great as you need to change a few trams to go to the centre or pay €20-15 for a taxi at night to get back.
Overall I'd give it 7/10

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Penthouse if you can. No need for breakfast

I had my doubts when my room was on the first floor with a window towards the street but it turned out to be a very nice and quiet room and being on the first floor was actually convenient. The staff was very friendly. The beds had duvet covers instead of top sheets and that I like. I think the room had just been renovated because everything looked very new. This was one of those everything-just-works -experiences.

Was visiting Amsterdam for two nights and wanted simple budget-friendly hotel in a decent location - this ticked all the boxes. We stayed in one of the small rooms on the ground floor, yes its compact but was very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. Location was just outside the centre, took 3 tram stops to get to Anne Frank and 15-20 min walk to red light district. Our only real negative was that the mattress and pillows were lumpy in places and the bathroom floor got very wet using the shower - poor design.
Overall I would stay here again because the small rooms were very reasonabily priced and suited our requirement for a two night stay.

This hotel is terrible, from the moment we walked in the front staff were rude, and definitely we bothered them by showing up. Couldn't get into our rooms till 3 and wanted $40. Early checkin at noon. Put all our bags (3 couples) in an unlocked board room, anyone could walk into.
Got our disgusting dirty room, burnt out light bulbs. 2 thin towels. Peeling wallpaper and filthy head board. No refund to leave!
No Manager even spoke to us. Our friends room was worse. Disgusting smell and only option to them cans of Glade room deodorizer. Breakfast was included. If you like toast, processed cheese slices and mushy brown fruit.
They should be shut down by the health board.
Do Not Stay There
