                Individual guest reviews

                • Great location for shopping & and trams and taxis are plentiful and reasonable. The hotel itself is beautiful and rooms and lobby are rather small. Dam square 3 minutes away and the staff is friendly. The beds are amazingly comfortable, the bar and the SPA are excellent, ideal for a nice drink in the evening.

                  Very low value for money, near to red light street and the service was spotty. And the curtains and bedspread were just old, breakfast was good, expensive at EUR 28, the concierge was not helpful in the least.

                • The location was very good and hotel was great. The service was fantastic, the concierge was useful and the suite had a huge comfortable bed and I slept well. The ala carte menu was more reasonable for a lighter breakfast and the garden was very nice too.

                  The staff forced smiles and were extremely aloof, room became very hot.

                • The location is interesting, the staff were all amazing and the refurbished style fo the hotel is very chic, the building itself is internally beautiful and historic. The public rooms are stylish.

                  Spa facilities isn't available due to rebuilding works.

                • The location is just perfect, wonderful hotel set within a beautiful courtyard and the staff is attentive and welcoming. The rooms are very clean, great wine waiters and true Star service.

                  The pool was nice to retreat to at the end of a busy day sightseeing.

                • The location is ideal and nice library place on the ground floor to have a drink in the evening. The building itself is beautiful and this was reflected in the high standard of our room, staff are great. The bedding is the best and the restaurant is delicious.

                  The hotel exhudes old world elegance, and has a rich history, the Spa is cramped.

                • Peaceful and very convenient location, bridges restaurant meal was great. Hotel personnel were wonderful and our room looked over the canal and was quiet. The staff were friendly and the concierges were extremely helpful. The bed was fantastic and the internal garden next to and serviced by the bar was epically nice.

                  Not worth the cost and breakfast very expensive, poor leisure facilities. The gym is too small.

                  The room really needs to be expanded 4 times the size is now.

                • The location is within 10 minute walking distance of the central railway station &, the staff of the hotel are exceptional and the bedding and the linen are also good.

                • Pool and sauna area good, red Light district 3 minutes away, similar to the best Asian hotels. Historic building, reasonable price and helpfullness of the staff were exceptional. The room was extremely comfortable and the restaurant, Cafe Roux, was delicious the one dinner we had there.

                  The location, in old Amsterdam, is excellent from a scenery and a shopping point of view.
