Good sized room, clean, standard chain hotel. Good selection for breakfast. Close to tram/bus stops into the city centre.

We just came back from a couple of nights trip to Amsterdam and I chose this hotel because I found a very good deal online and the reviews I read here weren't too bad.
Well, it's exactly that, an average hotel.

It's clean enough, with spacious rooms and a so so breakfast. The reception staff weren't the most attentive but friendly enough I guess. Don't expect much info from them though.

The best I can say it's the price we got. As if paying more I would have been quite disappointed. There is no way it's a 4 stars!

A nice enough hotel,we booked with easytobook.com,would not recommend this website as it lead us to believe the hotel was only a few minutes from Amsterdam centre when infact it is half an hour..We also requested a double bed and got twin beds as the website gave the wrong info to the hotel which was an inconvenience..I would recommend a closer hotel

We stayed in this hotel during our recent trip to Amsterdam because we were nervous about staying in a "character hotel" in central Amsterdam. This hotel fitted our budget and was a business hotel so we were pretty sure that some basics would be in place. We were disappointed with the shower and despite the efforts of the staff, our hotel safe didn't work so we were forced to take ALL of our valuables with us each day! The hotel is a good 25 min ride to Rembrandtsplein so if you have young kids it is difficult to "pop" back to the hotel during the day.
On the plus side, our family room was very large, both our girls had a proper single bed each, and we had more than enough room to relax in the armchairs and to swing a cat or two. The staff were friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfast plentiful. Had the shower worked properly, we would have rated the hotel higher as we were aware of its location when we booked so have no complaints on that score.
There is direct entry to the hotel from the P&R car park next to the hotel and the daily rate of €8 per day if you used public transport (free chip cards issued by the Q-Park office inside the car park) was reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the ring road - much quieter
