    Individual guest reviews

    • The location was excellent, we the hotel was absolutely perfect for our needs and the prices for Easter were incredibly high in my opinion for that kind of accomodation. The staff were very friendly and the receptionist was great. The room was clean, the breakfast was nice and varied.

      The birds on the canal were quite noisy in the morning and for the facilities provided the place was quite overpriced. The bed was very small and the computer at the reception was not working well. The mattress had some metal pieces coming off in your back and the manger and the owner were extremly unfriendly.

    • The location was really good, the hotel itself I thought was fine and the staff were also very friendly. Shower toilet facilities were clean.

      The room was too small and breakfast was very limited.

    • The location was very nice and the stuff there was very nice, good service. The staff were friendly, the room as was clean and quiet.

    • Fantastic location for visiting tourists and trams bring you to Damrak square every few minutes. Good value 2 star hotel, on a canal is nice and the rooms are clean and there is a housekeeper every morning. The breakfast is acceptable.

      The staff were unhelpful and unfriendly to make things worse, the tv was positioned beside the bed, made no sense and had no remote control.

    • The location was ideal, the staff at the hotel were incredible and reception people were all very nice and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, as was the bathroom, the continental breakfast offered a good variety and was plentiful.

      Overall the place is really bad and the windows make a loud noise all night.

    • I loved the location, shops and only a short distance from central station, some of the most important museums of the city. Good value for money, a small shopping street and staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was as expected clean and breakfast was always warm, fresh.

      Canal view not very nice, very bad hotel and for the price paid. The bed is not comfortable.

    • In a nice location and central train Station. The hotel staff were great and the price was cheap for Amsterdam for we got. Free internet was good too, service and breakfast was excellent.

      Depressing place to stay, its not an attractive building and bad reception. Room was very cramped, the restaurant was quite small and receptionist couldn't even tell us to get the zoo and the smell was just disgusting.

      Our room tiny overlooked the canal, horrible Dirty Hotel and the building is going through the front entrance constructions. The reception is closed already at 11 pm and bathroom is quite small.
