    The picture of the hotel on Bookings.com looks very, very nice. But once inside the hotel, it is not like you would expect from the picture. Rooms are very small and not quite what you might expect. Although they were quite European in size. The location was very convenient. The front desk fellows were very nice and helpful for things we needed to do, reservations, taxi, etc. In July the hotel was fully booked which may account for the wait staff in the restaurant being slow in response to patrons needs. I'm glad we were there on a cool day in July as sleeping on a fourth floor without AC would have been miserable.

    Good location next to Vondelpark and Museum plein. Easy access by public transport - trams 1, 2 and 5 from Amsterdam Centraal. Good for walking - close to Leiseplein, canals, shopping area. Clean rooms. Staff is good, polite and heplful. Check-in was even before 14.00, very nice.

    Small individual room, but for Amsterdam is normal as I know. And the price isn't low.

    Peaceful location near museums and good restaurants. In a walking distance from city fuzz. Easy to reach from airport by bus 197.

    Small room with mold smelling bathroom. Expensive.

    The receptionists were helpful and friendly. It was very close to the city centre, Leidersplein, so good location. Down a quiet side street so little external noise.

    It wasn't luxurious in any way. Plain, simple indeed of some decorating. The breakfast was very dull with few options and the 'waitress' seemed slightly harrassed if you asked her anything. The room was clean though basic - no frills, no real niceties. If you're looking for a one-night base for 4 people with a small budget it's fine. If you're staying longer you might want some more comforts.

    horrible filthy hotel. It should be condemned. The only hotel in my experience to ask for city tax at reception on top of total bill already paid.

    Location is great!

    The double room (Room 24) was not a double room. This room is so small that two people could not fit in the room at the same time. I think that if a room is so small that the one side of the bed is against the wall the same double room rate should not apply. When we checked in the lady did not tell us we should leave the key when we leave during the day resulting in another staff member the one night freaking out that we did not hand in our keys. Buffet breakfast was great except the Sunday morning at 09:00 when there was no clean tables or enough meat / juice or yoghurt.

    Location was good, next to Leidseplein, direct buss (#197 & 370) to airport (4e/person) took some 28minutes, Lot of restaurants and shops nearby.Our hotel room was on basement, not luxury but well enough for just sleeping (hotel prices in Amsteredam seemed to be quite high in general). Breakfast was ok. Staff was very helpfull, except lady in night shift.

    I found the staff very helpful, pleasant, and courteous.

    There was not much room for our luggage so it made it a tight fit in the room.

    The staff was very welcoming and helpful I'm so many ways that I wnont even start to count. Great location, quiet but close tomuseumes, shops and park

    The one bed in the single room was of a very low quality and made the night sleep a bit unpleasant

    The hotel is proud of the architecht that designed the building. Based on the room I was given I think he also designed prison cells in death camps. The room was very small, very expensive and noisy. I would never recommend this hotel, ever.

    Its the perfect hotel for short weekend in town, 3 min from amsterdam shopping area and coffeshops , great staff

  • Couple
    4.2

    The location is good, next to leidse plein, but not central enough if you wanna walk back home after going out at night

    The room is very very tiny, felt a bit laustrophobic and all the hotel looks very old and dusty
