Hotel is lovely although room was very dark and we seemed to pay a heavy premium by booking in advance. Hotel is in nice location and reception were really helpful and friendly. However, restaurant was very poor. We decided to eat there as first night in Amsterdam and felt easier - restaurant looks really nice. However, service was dire -... More

Stayed here for the weekend with a friend. The hotel is in a grand, architecturally interesting building and was well presented and decorated with some beautiful original features on the main stairs. The room itself was quiet with a comfortable bed and thick curtains that kept the room dark. The decor in the room was starting to get a little... More

This hotel is perfectly placed for first-time visitors to Amsterdam - major areas of the city can be covered on foot, and great museums, restaurants and shops are steps away. Hotel front desk staff members are knowledgeable and service-oriented. Exterior balcony rooms facing the canal are worth the 30 Euro up-charge from interior rooms, especially in warmer months. Rooms are... More

The hotel is cosy with its own charm. Spacious rooms well furnished with adequate furniture. The double bed is really a double bed . Very conveniently placed if you are arriving fro Schiphol airport since bus 197 drops you almost at the Hotel's doorstep (Leidseplein).

Super hotel. Comfortable beds. Amazing breakfast. Free wi-fi. Free loaner umbrellas. Convenient location for both walking (walking distance to rijksmuseum) and for trams, canal boats, and airport shuttle (bus 197). Friendly staff and very service oriented. The main square/intersection adjacent to the hotel was undergoing extensive roadwork so was inconvenient with regards to pedestrian detours and some tram stops, but... More

The hotel is centrally located in Leidesplein withing walking distance of the Rijks and Van Gogh museums. The rooms are decorated in art-deco style. Rooms are spacious and clean with good size bathroom, desk area, tea/coffee making facilities, minibar, iron and plenty of sockets which are needed these days. Robyn and Mandy at reception were most helpful.
