Stayed one night to visit Amsterdam.... Nice hotel, quite dated, very 70's Rooms were ok, we looked out over the water. I never ate at the hotel and the bar was closed. Staff were helpful. Took about 35 mins to travel by tram to get to Amsterdam dam square. 40 Euros for cab to airport. Ok to rest your head

This hotel is very far away from Central Amsterdam, it takes about 20 minutes by tram that you have to change. My first impressions of the hotel was that maybe it was an old dormitory of some sort, I've never seen the bed layout the way these were and there was no fridge. The room was clean enough but the...

Can't say I am a fan. The location is in a less than affluent area of town and a long way from central. There is a tram stop out front, but all things considered, don't be fooled to thinking it is easy to get to and from, a taxi will cost you just under 30euro. Room was the smallest hotel...

This hotel was the first hotel we stayed in on a 2 week tour through Europe. The quality and service was memorable. I wish the quality of the rest of the hotels we ventured to were even close to this one. The hotel is located a short distance from the middle of Amsterdam, only about a 15 Euro cab ride....

Have stayed here twice now within the last 12 months, first with my boyfriend then just come back with my friend. Both times were faultless. Picked mainly because of the worldwide brand. The location is a bit out of the city but only like 15-20 mins tram ride into the centre. Convenient transport from the airport as well, Bus 69...

The hotel is located outside Amsterdam's lively city. This means you have to rely on public transport into the city (you may rent a bicycle if you like). I didn't get the room facing the canal, mine faced some vents, so no view for me. The rooms were clean but tired and it's a popular hotel for tour groups. Breakfast...

The food offered in the restaurants is excellent for breakfast buffet but it can be much better for the other meals. a double bed should be a one double bed not two single beds put alongside each other, this seems to be the new trend in most hotels though.

Meeting at the reception was terribly cold and desagreable but the good-bye next morning extremly kind... Is it more reasonable to inverse, isnt'it? Amsterdam is a wonderful city with its particular charm but this hotel is a big deception not only because of the reception. Please, do better!

The hotel is very clean, very large rooms elegantly furnished and equipped bathroom with everything you need. As negative points to mention lack of refrigerator in the room (it's a 4 * hotel) and lack of windows for ventilation (in the room or bathroom), although room had two windows side. Very good service.
