            Great location near designer shops and park.

            Very noisy overnight (windows not very sound proof). Very noisy internal doors - banging in the morning, etc. Cramped bathroom - shower and toilet very close together.

            I bar would be ideal especially for business travel people who may not want to work in to the city centre. This is alos ideal for meeting people who coudl come to your hotel and maybe even eat. Probably more suitable for winter months.

            Not so expensive, in the close vincinity to a beautiful park

            too loud, not so close to the centre (it is near to Van Ghog museum, but 15-20 minutes walk from the Central station)

            It should be 2 star hotel, not 3. Convenient but rather expensive and not so clean room downstairs.

            It was a nice hotel located near downtown. By walking, Just 15 mins far from famous places. The services also were good.

            The location adjacent to Vondelpark is excellent and tram and bus lines are very close.

            The showers (on the top floor) were absolutely hopeless, nothing more than a trickle and constant fluctuation from hot to cold, not enough flow to even wash hands.The sheets in both rooms had holes and the heater in one room did not function. The electric heater supplied as an alternative was in dangerous disrepair. It is obvious that the hotel management only does the bare minimum to meet requirements. There are better options available for the same price.

            The hotel is well situated near the museums, public transport and a big park. The breakfasts were good.

            The bathroom facilities were extremely small and I thought it was expensive for the quality of room we had. The hotel has undoubted potential but it needs redecorating.

            the hotel was very shabby.the rooms were tiny and the walls were very thin.there were gaps in the window surrounds so that a cold wind blew in the room every night.Very dissappointing for a hotel situated at the heart of a great shopping centre.

            The breakfast was great! The Internet connection was fast and efficient.

            Efficient, informative and helpful staff. Affordable, clean accommodation. Quiet, peaceful location providing easy walkable access to Museumplein, Vondel Park, Leidseplein, Rozengracht flower market, nine streets shopping district and many other places of interest.

            Its area is around most of fashion brand store in amsterdam, it's only 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
