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 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.
