Great hotel, in a great location

Pros: Public areas were stylish and immaculate with great breakfast included.
Cons: Stairwell up to our room a little tired compared to the room & reception/bar area, would be nice to see this upgraded. Limited seating for breakfast.
Location: Great location, close to station and all sites. Try Boca for great food in a fun and lively environment.
The welcome was great and check-in was quick and painless. Staff were friendly and the public areas were immaculate. The room was fairly small but perfectly adequate. Our room was at the top of steep narrow stairs, which was fine foe us but may not suit everyone. The location of the hotel is great too, ten minutes walk from Central Station and perfectly located for exploring all of the city.

City break

Hotel was fabulously quirky. Rooms nice and clean a little on the small side but not a problem as not much time was spent in the room! Bed was excellent super comfy! Rooms are a little noisy with regards to neighbours. Location couldn't be any better. Really enjoyed our stay would definitely consider staying here again!

good location

This is our second stay in this hotel. It is exactly as described,..chic and basic. A good base for exploring Amsterdam with only a five/ten minute walk to the train station. Worth paying for a canal view, Only down side of this stay was that the kitchen was closed and only had toast and jam for breakfast, we were not made aware of this until our arrival. Overall good value though.

Séjour satsfaisant, chambre fonctionnelle

Dommage que les femmes de chambres frappes les portes avec l'aspirateur le matin, peut-être une technique ou juste de l'indélicatesse. Sinon très propre, rien à dire. Le personnel de l'hôtel est efficace et disponible.

Amsterdam on ihana kaupunki, rento tunnelma ja hyvää loma kohde

Kiva sisustus (retro), mukava henkilökunta ja hyvää palvelu. Aamupala valikoima suppea, ja huone oli pieni.
