Excellent location, close to all attractions in the center and to public transportation. Room 2 on the ground floor is quite small and noisy because of people traveling through the entrance and from the receptionist himself one evening until midnight. Bathroom is about 1 meter x 2 meters (3 x 6 feet) all included, i.e. the entire bathroom is the...

Modern, comfortable and well situated. The king size bed was very comfortable. Close to huge selection of cafes and restaurants, close to river canal cruise boarding jetty. Within walking distance to most attractions. We walked to the maritime museum. Well priced, I was very happy with this hotel

Well located hotel, comfortable bed. Clean rooms and bathrooms. We stayed on the ground floor, next to the reception, which was very loud. We only stayed fo a day for going out, so it didn't bother us so much, but I would probably wont book it again.

My stay at Sara's Boutique Hotel was uncomfortable. I felt cramped, unwelcome, and frustrated. This hotel was not what I was expecting. Customer service is nonexistent and the front desk staff seemed annoyed when I asked for restaurant recommendations. There were several problems with my room during my 3 night stay. For example, my room was supposed to have a...

Stayed here with a friend on our trip to Amsterdam! The room was clean and comfortable, and the amenities were very nice. We had a lovely small balcony, and we were very pleased there was an elevator as the stairs would have been a bit scary with our bags. The front desk staff was very helpful, and the location was...
