      • Best location in Amsterdam and only 10 min from Central Station. Good value for money, excellent price and red light district. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, i liked the leidesplein and the rembrantplein for drinking and meals.

        Water gets everywhere in the tiny bathroom.

      • The location is perfect and the underground parking located at 300 m is very expensive. Hotel is very central and the red light district is just a few blocks away. The staff are friendly and helpful, beds are comfy, moreover lots of food spots are wrking all day/night long downstairs.

        Room was very small.

      • Simple and great location, central station. Fast food near the hotel, good Price and just on the outskirts of the Red Light District. Within walking distance to the best of Amsterdam, staff is helpful and this caused water to get all over the bathroom floor no matter careful you were.

        Small rooms no amenities no elevator it', breakfast poor.

      • The location is the best and s 10 minutes walk away from the central railway station. The hotel staff is very friendly, less than 1 block from Dam Square and windows will just open 2cm, not even enough to take your hand out. The bars, are alright round here and the toilet cleaniless could be improved. Moreover lots of food spots are wrking all daynight long downstairs.

        Front rooms can be noisy facing busy street and the mattress on the bed is way too soft.

      • The location was great and the hotel was dead in the middle of the red light district. The staff were very courteous, room was clean.

        Better windows would be nice, curtains and sheets are in used nylon, breakfast expensive for a single OJ and a piece of bread.

      • The location was perfect, the best thing about the hotel was the reception staff and in our room there was a new bathroom and the room itself was also very clean. The wireless net worked fine and breakfast was a simple banquette, a few slices of cheese, juice and coffee.

        Not worth the price, shower were dirty and the toilet never flushed properly and the workers were very rude.
