We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel - a group of 5. What a surprise it was as often when booking not known hotels or chains you do not know what to expect. All staff were friendly and went out their way to be so. The room was a refreshing surprise - Modern & non...

We were pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay. Smoking is prohibited by law in all public places, including hotels. Despite this interdiction there are still guests who do smoke and not only tobacco. If we discover this we invoice them with € 125.-- for cleaning expenses and this is written at the front-office desk as well as in...

I absolutely loved De Roode Leeuw. It was exactly what I expected of a little old hotel right in the centre of Amsterdam, just off Dam Square along Damrak. Very friendly staff. Relatively expensive room rates by some standards, but neither unreasonable nor unexpected for the location. Beautifully renovated and very tastefully furnished and decorated. The rooms, though small, were...

We used the Hotel for three nights as a couple having a weekend break. It was reasonably priced and the location was perfect for venturing out during the day. It is up at the top of the Damrak so it's a 15min walk from Central Station and is located close enough to the Canal belt, Jordaan and other areas to...

This old lady celebrated its 100 years last year and was awarded a Royal distinction by her Majesty the Queen of Holland. But 100 years old does not mean outdated. As you have experienced it yourself all our rooms have been fully renovated in the past month and I am pleased that you enjoyed them. We offer rooms with plenty...

Dear Madam, It was with regret that I learned of your negative experience at our property. After you had left my staff had informed me already about your complaints.

The location is really a big plus, but what is really surprisingly is the great service!

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
