First time in Amsterdam and this hotel is Ideally placed for the city centre. any of the side streets take to Dam's square and only 5 mins walk from the station. Tram stops are right outside. I will stay there again.

Perfect location, close to the port, tram-bus station and most of the attractions. Short variety but perfect quality products for the breakfast. Rooms adequately big, but without view. Overall...a nice hotel, which we would recommend.

Centrally located, clean, cozy with wonderful staff. A pleasant stop when travelling! Single room is small but not cramped with a good-sized bathroom. I would recommend to anyone looking for good value.

An excellent location if you are planning for a short stay in Amsterdam. All places to visit within a 15 minute walk of the hotel. Front Desk Staff were excellent in their service and very helpful about planning of sightseeing places.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
