                    Your location was great. We wanted to see the museums and your location was ideal. You price was great for us - budget-conscious travelers. Breakfast was a very good part of the service. I liked that you included it in the price. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed on July 16-17-18. We arrived very wet and dazzled by the new city we were in. The young man at the desk was very kind and accommodating. He made us feel very welcome. This was the evening shift. I'm sorry we did not get his name but his service was commendable.

                    This is only a minor complaint and would not influence my decision to stay at Acro again. The computer service that cost 2 Euros for 30 minutes was not up to the rest of your hotel's standard. The internet was slow and often froze. We had to ask for your euros back during one use because we simply could not get to the Internet. No big deal but this service was not up to the rest of the service in your hotel.

                    Close to Vongel park, museums and city. Large clean neat room and leafy street. Close to high end shopping and a great park for kids. Management was helpful where they could.

                    The room's bathroom wasn't ventilated properly so it smelled so musty and horrible so much I had to use air freshener very very frequently and keep door shut when in the room.

                    Location was great and the hotel staff were welcoming. The room was small however clean and modern with all mod cons and the breakfast was standard. I would stay again and recommend it to friends.

                    I didn't like being on the top floor as I smoke and making the journey for a I cigarette was annoying, however I suppose that's a good thing makes you smoke less.

                    Hotel staff was very understanding and allowed me to cancel the remainder of my stay at there hotel.

                    Room was very small and did not have air conditioning and no way for air to circulate. I booked a triple and the third bed was a chair that pulled out and was a very hard cushion. You could not expect anyone to sleep there. Hotel did not provide washcloths.

                    the staff was very nice and helpfull+the location

                    It seems like the owners took a 30 rooms hotel and convert it into 60 rooms hotel. actually they split the rooms for more profit so the rooms are tiny. for example, to get inside the shower you have to enter while standing on the side(because of the sink)+ the gap between the bed and the wall is like 40cm. most of the time the TV had only 3 snowy channels+Wi-Fi was only near the reception (they r selling it as"WiFi in the rooms")- and it doesnt seem anybody is going to change it.

                    Large room space and modern refurbishments in the room. The bathrooms were great. Nice big showers with hard pressure and lasting hot water. The location was suitable close to all shopping an near all sites yet out of town.

                    Staff were not helpful nor friendly. The facilities were very basic without a simple kettle/jug for a cup of tea when relaxing in the room. The breakfast was basic continental and ok.

                    Seems like the rooms have been refurbished - mine had a wooden floor, very good modern shower, and LCD TV on the wall. Breakfast was pretty good - lots of choice and space in the breakfast room. Hotel is well placed for museums and the 197 bus to Schipol Airport. Lots of places within walking distance.

                    Both the room and the bathroom were quite small, and too warm. Couldn't seem to open the window to let air in. Not a massive problem, but a bit annoying.

                    very nice hotel, clean, cool little room painted in white, free wifi, fair price, near to Van Goch museum.

                    The stairs are not comfortable

                    The rooms had just been done up and looked lovely. Ours was very large (so lots of room for a cot and child's bed) and had a great view of the street. It's in a great location, too. It's really, really close to the rijksmuseum and the Van Gough museum, and a great little park. And just one street away is Amsterdam's main fashion district.

                    The hallways outside the rooms was a little dingy (but due for decoration I was told). The lift is a bit scary if you have kids (it's one of those old ones without a set of internal doors, so you just have bare wall sliding past you)

                    The location is great, nice and very near to museum.

                    I stayed over five night but they have never replace my bed sheets.

                    Location, location, location!!! Bedroom is nice and new, only. Breakfast included and Ok. Good price compered with other disponible options.

                    The hotel is dark, old fashioned, old and dusty carpet. Going to a reformulation. Reception and bar wifi only. The front desk people seems to be bothered to be there. Some times quit unpolited.

                    The great location - near Rijksmuseum, tramway stop. A room was very comfortable, but towels and bed were not changed during 5 days. Breakfast is usual.

                    Wi-fi was not working - you could only use a computer on reception (2 euro in a half an hour). A staircase is very steep and it's difficult if you have heavy bags.

                    The location was fantastic, right near the museums and an easy walk to many cafes, restaurants and shopping areas. The tram stop was at the end of the street so it was easy to travel around. The hotel has been recently renovated so the room looked 'fresh' and the decor was nice. It was very clean and serviced daily and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was included and was good. All in all a good experience.

                    The hotel offered free WiFi but unfortunately this was not working well during our stay. It didn't work at all in the room and was very slow when used downstairs, due to the renovations apparently. We booked for 3 people because our daughter was traveling with us and the room shown in photos on the internet shows 3 beds, however one of the 'beds' turned out to be a fold-out chair which was not very comfortable for our daughter. When we approached the staff about this they said nothing could be done and were not very interested in our problem.... finally at our suggestion they did provide a couple of extra layers (quilts) to add on top of the fold out to make it more comfortable. The staff attitude in general was fairly ordinary.

                    A localização é muito boa e o café da manhã é farto. Ideal para pessoas que, como eu, só usam o quarto para tomar banho e dormir a noite. Fica numa rua tranquila e com vida noturna bem próxima, além de transporte de fácil acesso para estação central e aeroporto.

                    Fiquei em quarto duplo com 2 camas e é muito pequeno. Poderia ter uma cafeteira elétrica no quarto,
