The hotel could not be better located: right next to the Dam Square and walking distance to the main areas: De Wallen, Leidseplein, Museum square and many more. Less than 10 minutes away from the Main Station by foot and near all public transportation. The room was everything we needed for a small vacation. It was very clean, modern, cozy and very comfy beds. There was quite little room for luggage and clothes etc. but manageable. There is no elevator and the stairs are pretty steep, so they can be tricky for older people. It's worth the extra money compared to the hotels that are further away because the location of the hotel just made everything easier for us. The staff from the cleaners to the receptioners were amazing and so helpful.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with 2 friends. We arrived to a very friendly man on reception who told us we’d been upgraded to a 4 person room. This room had such lovely views of the street we were on and loved being able to see the whole road from my bed. Particularly liked the large windows that let lots of light in so much so that we slept with the curtains open on 2/3 nights. Beds were comfy and I slept well. Could be a little noisy at times but if you’re going to bed late and waking up early to see the sights then it’s fine. Breakfast was continental and there was a variety of items which were regularly replenished. The location was perfect and was about a 10 minute walk from the central station surrounded by many different shops and restaurants. Amsterdam in general is such a lovely city with so much to do and I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I revisited the area. Would highly recommend ❤️❤️

A great little hotel, hidden in the very heart of the city. I use the word hidden deliberately because the hotel is in two very unassuming buildings, surrounded by restaurants with flashy neon signs, and those who aren't looking for it probably wouldn't even notice it. We walked past the entrance when heading back to our room a few times. But once you're in there, you find a comfortable great little room, with a big squashy bed, full memory foam mattress, and a wet room shower. This hotel has made the absolute best use of its space down to the last cm. However, the pink elephant in the room, and one that you will see in other reviews, are the stairs. They are very narrow, and there are a lot of them! We were in room 57 which is right at the top. And required going up no less than 5 flights of stairs to get up there. And the stairs are extremely narrow, and at some points feel more like climbing a ladder. This is not a criticism, because such stairs are a feature of the old dutch houses. So it's to be expected, but if you are in any way not in good health, I'd make sure you request a room on the lower floors, as the stairs could easily go from challenging to dangerous if you aren't able to take them on. But that's the only advisory notice of an otherwise brilliant hotel. And the one thing I will say about being on the top floors is that you are high enough above the noise on the streets, that you will still get a good night's sleep, despite the fact that it couldn't be more in the centre of the city if it tried to be.
