Very well located. Easy walking distance to Leidsplein and Museumplein. Trams and buses from most routes stop just outside the hotel. The art deco restaurant is beautiful. Breakfast is great value if you fill up on the buffet. Really enjoyed sitting in the comfy and relaxing bar.

On the canal, its location is central to shopping, meals and sight seeing. Walking distance to the major museums and experiences! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the staff was knowledgeable and pleasant! I...

This served as an excellent base , from which we could explore the many interesting tourist attractions in Amsterdam. The staff were very friendly and even suggested a nice traditional Restaurant which we booked four our joint birthday celebrations. The room we booked was tasteful in its décor .The only negative was the lack of room lighting.

This hotel is located on a canal, five minutes walk from Museum Square and ten minutes walk from the flower market. Its central location makes it ideal for tourists.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review posting and stay, being a local resident. Since the hotel classification is no longer obligatory in The Netherlands, the discussion about four, four-and-a-halve or five stars seem less important than your stars (or balls) on trip advisor. This way you rate the hotel instead of an institution. With best regards,

Friendly front desk staff, knowledgable concierge that recommended excellent resturants. The best thing though was their comfortable beds. We also had a great time at their cafe. We would go again for sure.

Absolutely perfect stay. This hotel was absolutely beautiful. The location was brilliant, the room was a great size. Bathroom slightly small but was all we needed. Great little windows with a brilliant view of the street. Bed felt like a cloud! The hotel lobby was absolutely beautiful and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
