We stayed there for only one night. The hotel was ok, friendly and helpful staff. The room was also ok. The room was clean, not that spacious but cozy.As we were a couple it was a pity that we didn't get double bed which we booked but that wasn't anything bad. The beds were pretty comfortable. The location was pretty...

The hotel is situated outside of the city centre, a positive is that the tram and bus stops are really close to the hotel. It takes 15 mins to get into the centre so it was not an issue. It is worth getting a ticket ( depending on how long you are there for, they do them in 24,48 and...

Myself and a group of friends booked 2 rooms here for a weekend away in Amsterdam. The rooms were a good size, very clean and great for us as we only used this as a base while we explored. The tram is very close which was fantastic and it only takes around 20 minutes to get into the city centre...

Got a cheap deal on this hotel so figured it would be what it was and wasnt too fussed. Decor is mediocre- staff were ok- breakfast good if you like bread (lots of varieties!) I would not re book but its just my personal taste- nothing was actually wrong with this place! The room we had was rather small though....

This hotel offers comfortable rooms and vintage forniture :) it is all right. Anyway it is not perfect because it misses some basic things for a 4 stars hotel such as mini bar and similar. Staff is kind

The hotel is basic but clean. Staff are helpful and friendly. They cleaned our room daily provided us with fresh towels each day. It's about 20 mins from the centre. Its right near a bus and tram stop. The trams are every few minutes.

My friend and I are two students who planned our staying in Amsterdam for almost one week. More than 8 days before our arrival in Amsterdam, my friend had an accident and we were forced to cancel our booking. I immediately contacted the hotel (there was plenty of time to get another booking by some other clients) and I kindly...

Not impressed! Mould in the bathroom and had to get moved to a better hotel room and wait for two hours after arrival. Will not return and the area is at least 20 minutes from central Amsterdam and not a very nice area to be walking around.

Hotel nice enough, breakfast buffet style not much to shout home about however staff are helpful unless they want to tidy up! The hotel is a little far out of the centre for us so next time e go we are planning on stopping elsewhere.
