Excellent Location, Room not so great though

Pros: the staff
Cons: Warn people about the noise, room wasnt noise insulated very well
Location: Everything was in walking distance
Hotel was in an excellent location, the hotel itself was nice. however the room wasnt a great standard and the room faced onto the road where all the beer bikes went down. It was like the window was open when it wasnt, it was that loud.

Nice hotel in heart of city

Good location and excellent staff! Staying over the weekend gave us the benefit of the full american breakfast on sat and sun. The hotel reception area was good. We had the superior room as there were 3 of us. The 3rd bed is a sofa bed and the layout of the room was a bit strange. The hotel is on the expensive side and apart from the service and staff it doesn't quite make it a 5 star for me. More of a good 4 star. I would recommend this hotel for the service and staff alone.

Good hotel good location

Had a great stay but had to pay a deposit of 75 euros per night which none of us were aware of and were told we would receive in 2 weeks time with no reciept given. The location was great and in the heart of amsterdam which made easy access for everything.

stag do!!

Absolutely amazing hotel, in an amazingly central location. We paid a very good price for what i think was included and we are definitely returning!! The only fault i would say was the room we were in was right by the flag pole, and this got quite noisy at night! Apart from that all the staff were very friendly they couldnt do more to help you out, some one is always available! Its also the little things that make this hotel stand out such as bringing toothpaste up to the room, or giving out hotel umbrellas when it was raining! Brilliant place!!

amazing couples break

We stayed here for a long weekend break. It was our first holiday together as a couple. We arrived at 10.30 to see if we could leave our luggage as check in wasnt until 3pm. The gentlemen who dealt with us was amazing. He checked us in early. Upgraged our room as there was a little error when trying to get into our room. (Dealt with straight away) the staff were so helpful. The rooms werr imaculate. Cleaned daily. And wr had a bath in our room which was lovely :-). Will definately be staying here again wen we come back in october :-)

Fantastic Birthday weekend

We had an absolutely lovely time in Amsterdam. The hotel is only a short walk to Central Station and Damrak. The staff are welcoming, very friendly and most helpful. The hotel whilst central is quiet and the surrounding streets were very clean. We would recommend this hotel and will certainly return on our next trip.
