The location is good, the reception is well staffed, when I arrived and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. To the room: An old fashion furnished triple room, all three mattresses were comfortable, but the carpeted floor was very wet in some places (and especially smelly), no hotel slippers are there, so bring your flip-flops. The bathroom was quite clean,...

The staff are extremely helpful. the fact that the transportation ticket can be bought inside the hotel makes everything so much easier. The breakfast buffet is full...

We stayed there for 3 nights, as we wanted to see the city, we spent less time in a hotel. Beds were lovely, we had a corner room with a lovely (not spectacular) view on the little lake. Few downsides - there is no great amount of shops, but it's nice to take a walk, no crowds at all. 15...

We found the reception staff very helpful & we checked in easily. Our room was on the top floor facing an office block, with a side view of the canal. It was beautifully quiet with no noise from the busy road out front. The beds were very comfortable and we were grateful for the peace & quiet of the hotel...

The Staff is very nice and the hotel is located in a good point of the city. You can use bus and metro without walking a lot. The hotel has a lot of services: they sell bus tickets, give you all informations you need. GOOD!

The personnel wonderfully helpful! They provided maps of Amsterdam, traffic information, taxi calling, even free entrance tickets to my colleagues to Holland-Casino in Max Euweplein, where one of my colleagues won 3500 euro in one hour.
