                The location.

                The bathroom shower was almost unusable; The bed was too small for my height (1,85m) and there are walls on both ends; Breakfast is poorly prepared.

                All in all, a good experience. Quiet, near the tram-stop, meets all basic needs. Perfect for travellers that do not intend on spending much of their time in the hotel room.

                Single bed room was extremely small, and on the street level (which did not end up being a problem, although it did bother at first).

                A reasonably priced comfortable clean room close to the city centre and main attractions. Easy to find. Staff were friendly and helpful.

                The noise from the traffic outside was quite loud at night. No hot drinks making facilities in room. No plug for the sink.

                Sad, they could have spent more of the budget on the rooms instead of the lobby. Felt like a rip-off, attractive lobby and then really bad rooms. Water damage in the roof, cold and half finished work. There was no heating in my first room, and since they let me change and I had paid two days in advance, they figured that there was no need for refunding the second day when I cancelled my reservation. Definitely never coming back, and not recommending to anyone.

                Hotel was nice, especially reception and public areas.

                Room very small, quite noisy. I found it quite expensive for what it was but it seem like these are the average prices for hotels in Amsterdam.

                We enjoyed staying in a hotel. It was very quiet and you couldnt hear people making a noise in other rooms.

                When we checked and we got our key from the room. We found somebodys hair in a sink, also, was quite few on a toilet pan.
