“OK but tired hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

I stayed here for five nights on a 2-week business trip. The location was great -- on a Tram line, an easy walk to the Metro that took me to Biljmer Arena (the stop for my company's office), and right in the middle of things. My room was at the back of the hotel -- on check in, the staff did ask for my preference -- but a little too small and "tired." There was an electric kettle to make tea and a refrigerator (nice, with an Albert Heijn just around the corner), but *very* few electric outlets. I unplugged the desk lamp to make room for my lap top, and unplugged the TV so that I could use the electric kettle. The bathroom had a hair dryer, but it came apart in my hand and the sink was extremely slow to drain. Still, it had a nice electric towel bar. I think the hotel needs some refurbishing and I probably won't stay there again if I have other comparably-priced options.

Our room was ready when we arrived, earlier than check in time. Even though the hotel is dated its in a good position easy walking to city centre and museums. Have to mention the staff at the bar, friendly and happy. The room was larger than I expected. Will recomend to friends.

Our first visit to Amsterdam for my wife's birthday, we wanted a hotel within walking distance of the major attractions and this hotel certainly delivered, being situated next to the flower market. Our room was clean,situated at the rear of the hotel and had a decent bathroom,tv,mini bar and we also found a trouser press.The room was quiet, the facilities were good and the staff were all courteous and pleasant although there was a rather unpleasant smell in the downstairs lobby area.....
However...the beds were 2 singles pushed together and were hard.I think the previous owner was Fred Flintstone. My wife who suffers with her back, had to put the spare blankets on top of the mattress to soften it.
We stayed for 2 nights at a cost of 307 euros room only plus the local tax. This is expensive for what is being offered in my opinion and I do not put the quality of the hotel in a 4 star catagory. A £19 a night Travelodge would be better. Some new and comfortable beds would help bring this hotel up to standard and a general re-fit but as Amsterdam has such a large tourist population, most Hotels can fill up and charge what they like so I think the likelyhood of any improvements being made in the near future are remote whilst the money is pouring in.
I have stayed in much nicer b&b's at much cheaper rates so it was a dissapointment.
On the plus side, the location is good. We were able to visit all major attractions like Anne Frank house, Dam Sq.,Red Light District, Heineken Brewery and all within a short walk. Our overall experience of Amsterdam was good.
Would we return again? To Amsterdam, most certainly and we plan to return again at some point but would try to find a nicer place to stay.

Room Tip: Previous reviews have mentioned noise from outside. I can only say that our room looking out over th...

Very expensive at 170 euros / night. Hotel showing signs of its age and in need of refurbishment. Staff very friendly but always a queue at reception, 15 min wait to check out Sunday morning is in acceptable. Not worthy of 4 stars.
