“Average Western.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Stayed there a couple nights earlier this month. Did stay a few years ago and that was better. Service was average, room was decent, but far over priced for what it was. Breakfast was a winner though.

Room Tip: We stayed tucked away in a corner room somewhere, it was still quite loud from the cleaners slamming...

We enjoyed our stay on our last night in Europe. The rooms are average hotel size, the bathroom spotless, and shower huge. The hotel has a sleek feel, but could benefit from an outdoor space. The amenities were top quality and a nice touch. I booked this hotel with my BW points and the breakfast was included, a very nice meal. It's in an area of Moroccan culture and steps away is a small mall that is quite an interesting experience. Ada's restaurant is highly recommended and close by but expensive so we opted for the little local bar across from it that was very good. The tram stops close by so it should be quite accessible, but we took a town car from the airport for a last splurge (40 euros). There's a noon check out that was nice. We didn't have to feel hurried for a 3 p.m. flight.

We stayed with a family of 5 and found this to be a a very good hotel and great value for Amsterdam. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and good sized. The hotel location is outside of the city center, but the tram stop is just up the street and it is an easy tram ride into central Amsterdam. You can purchase the tram tickets, etc. right from the front desk so there is no hassle or confusion. It's only about a 20 min taxi ride to/from the airport from the hotel. Would recommend this hotel and would certainly stay there again.

Stayed at this Hotel in February on a weekend trip to Amsterdam and loved it. The room was really lovely and of high quality. The room had a large walk in shower which was amazing! The air con in the room was outstanding and easy to use. We choose to have breakfast added on to our visit and what a great choice it was the food was outstanding and there was plenty of it! We didnt realise how far out of the city centre the hotel was but just outside is a tram stop which takes you directly into the centre and takes about 25 minutes to get there. It is a bit rough in the area the hotel is located. Would definately recommend this hotel but next time we would go closer to the city centre.

The hotel is too far from Central Amsterdam, room was spacious and comfortable. Too expensive for such bad location. I wouldn't recommend it especially if you are traveling with children. But if you need a big room and you don't mind spending money and time on tram this hotel might work for you.

Great stay. Don't be put off by exterior. Excellent location easy train ride to Central Station. Very helpful staff. Market next door. Only downsides, poor internet, no laundry room and only Turkish food nearby. Love Turkish and Maram's across the street is fantastic; just gets old after a week. Highly recommend!

We were upgraded from Nieuw Slotania to this hotel and we were very happy. Nice big rooms, big bathrooms, nice quiet area and the breakfast was superb! The restaurant also hosted dinner in the evenings and while it was a small selection, we wre very happy with our meals. My main gripes are that it was quite far from anything (however the tram stopped right outside) and the reception seemed to be short staffed - once or twice we tried to chat to them and found ourselves waiting for long periods of time. But overall our experience was wonderful and I would recommend.
