We have recently returned from a weekend in Amsterdam and stayed at the Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw. We were very happy with the hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful. Our room was looking a bit tired but understand that the bedrooms are in the process of being upgraded. Having said that our bathroom was very modern...

We were pleased top learn that you enjoyed the location of our hotel as well as your stay with us. Yes, 2 floors have still to be refurbished but we are working hard to make it possible to start at the end of the year so that the hotel has been fully refurbised by March 2013. We hope that you...

Having just returned from our first trip to Amsterdam, we were so pleased to have chosen to stay here. An excellent location for all the main sights in Amsterdam. We walked everywhere with information and maps provided by the very helpful, friendly hotel staff. We had an ample breakfast every day and one excellent evening meal in the restaurant. The...

You pay for the location with this one. Staff were lovely but room was dark and smelt damp, although it was clean. Just didn't feel comfy.

We thank you for posting your review. We were sorry to learn that you found the room to be damp. The only reason we can see for this is the long period of rainfall we suffered. Now that the summer came back, we hope that this problem is resolved. Yours sincerely Rene Wildeman, General Manager

Just come back after spending 4nights in Amsterdam at De Roode Leeuw with my husband on a city break Hotel was perfectly placed for getting around Amsterdam with minimum effort, near Dam square. The rooms were compact, modern, clean had excellent facilities for us to use a base for us to explore Amsterdam. Excellent value for money and superb weather!!

It was a pleasure to learn that you enjoyed your stay AND the weather since summer has not much showed of the positive sides yet. Indeed our location is unbeatable as we are just on Dam square and within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station. This is the strength of De Roode Leeuw through the past 6 centuries as we...

Booked late through Expedia, and chosen purely on location and cost - not cheap, but comparatively reasonable, especially for where it's situated on the corner of the Damrak/Dam Square, in the very heart of Amsterdam. So pretty much everything's within walking distance (or a short tram ride), with two department stores (one opposite, one 2 minutes' walk), lots of souvenir...

We thank you for your extensive review and apologize that the cleanliness under the bed was not as it has to be.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire, which meant I didn't know much about it before arriving. My past Hotwire forays yielded hotels that were above expectations. This one was just so-so by comparison. I was told by a Netherlands-based friend that Amsterdam has among the least value-for-money hotels in the world, so perhaps my slight disappointment was not on account...

We regret that we did not fully meet oyour expectations as far as accommodation was concerned but understood that this was (partly ?) compensated by the friendliness and helpfulness of our staff. Our basic internet connection is enough for checking mails etc. For those who want more bandwith a scale of different speeds is available against payment. We hope that...

We were happy to learn that you enjoyed your stay and yes, everything in Amsterdam is within walking distance. In fact , although Amsterdam is known the world over, it is a relatively small town with only 750.000 inhabitants. (approx. 1.000.000 with the suburbs). So walking or biking is the thing to do, like most locals do also. We look...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Great central location, affordable rates, clean & comfortable rooms and friendly & attentive hospitality. In an amazing location, just off Dam Square and right in the middle of Amsterdam's city center, you'll find Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw. This is where you want to stay if you're coming to Amsterdam. Sure, you can find fancier 4 star hotels in Amsterdam, but what we may lack in glitz we more than make up for in authentic friendliness and true hospitality. All of our bathrooms are all new, and our rooms are comfortable, well maintained, and always spotlessly clean. ... more   less
