We just come back with my husband from Amsterdam,we where stay in Westcord City centre hotel. What can i say,the staff was brilliant,very helpful,friendly. rooms its very clean,tidy ,about food don't know cos we where took just bed,so we where eat outside.Hotel location is perfect for tourist ,because everything is closed ...5 minutes from broadway ,all bars,restaurants very closed. Especially good thing that Amsterdam Centre Train centre is 5 minutes away from hotel..this is very very good thing where for us,cos we took train to airport .I would recommend this hotel defiantly!

We enjoyed our stay at Westcord City Center Hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff and clean room. We had a 3 bed room which was big enough for us. We could sleep very well in the comfortable beds. And also no noise during nighttime. The location is just perfect. 5 minutes walk to central station or red light district. If we will come backt to Amsterdam again we will book this hotel.

This hotel is in a great central location. 5 minute walk to central station, Damrak runs parallel and lots of eating places to choose from. It's a nice location although there are a few red light houses in the alley next to the hotel and also at the rear. This didn't bother us and wasn't a problem in any way but some may not like it.
The hotel has been recently refurbished and it is very clean and modern. Nice light reception area with comfy seating and a little snack bar and the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Our room was clean and comfy though it was very small! The double bed was up against the wall on one side and also at the bottom with the headboard sort of sticking out into the middle of the room - so if you were on the inside the only way in or out was to climb over! There was a desk opposite the side of the bed with just enough room to walk through. The bathroom was very nice and modern, and mainly made of glass - including the door - so not much in the way of privacy but this wasn't a problem for us.
There was free tea and coffee and free WiFi in the rooms. The room was nice and comfy but just too small and laid out a little bit awkward with the bed being pushed right up in the corner!

You are spoilt for choice with restaurants but we can recommend Humphreys just opposite, very nice food for an evening and we ate there both nights. If you want something a little more snacky then Buon Appetito just down the road is also very nice.

We pre-booked the breakfast at the hotel as it was cheaper but it still cost 12.50 euros each so a bit on the steep side! It was very nice though with a good choice of pastries, bread, ham and cheese, fruit, cereal, yoghurt and cooked eggs and bacon. There are a lot of places near by you can get a cooked breakfast for around 5 euros but they don't open that early so no good if you want an early start like we did.

Our room was so small I think we'd try the Best Western on Dam Square if we go back, as it looked very nice and was slightly cheaper too. But that's the only criticism of this hotel and we enjoyed our stay!

Its in a perfect location - exactly behind Royal Palace! Just one step to Damrak:) Reception was very helpful and really nice. Rooms, maybe not big, but clean, comfortable and quiet. Very good beds - sooft! Interesting glass bathrooms:) And my favorite Brasil koffie behind the corner!!!

Room Tip: I like the top floors - they are very private & have a good view on a city.

Stayed here again in March 2014 for 5 nights. The hotel is on a fairly quiet street, 5 minutes from Centraal Station. Arrived at 10:30 to a friendly welcome. My room wasn't ready so stored my bag and went away for something to eat and do a bit of sight-seeing. Had to wait until 15:30 for my room which was a nice double on the 5th floor overlooking the back of the hotel. Rooms are cosy with modern bathrooms and air-conditioning. The bed was very comfortable.
The hotel is in a great location, very close to attractions in the heart of Amsterdam but quiet enough to ensure a good nights sleep. There is a tram stop in front of the hotel enabling access to Amsterdam's wonderful public transport.
Only minus is that breakfast isn't included as standard on most deals and expensive when it is. That said, don't let the lack of breakfast put you off, there are plenty of small cafe's and restaurants nearby.
This is a great hotel in a great location. Staff are all very helpful and friendly. The rooms are cleaned every day and importantly, do not disturb signs are respected for when you have had a late night. Highly recommended, I've already booked a room for my return in August.

Dear Davie T,

How great to read you will be returning to our hotel! Based on the reactions we received through Tripadvisor we are currently seeking the possibility of having a second breakfast type available, at a lower price than our traditional full breakfast buffet of €12.50. So when you come back in August, we might even have this available for you.

In case you have any prior to arrival queries (if you want us to arrange taxi-pickup, pre-reserve certain restaurants you liked during your last stay, you have any specific request with regards to the room etc. etc.), just send me an e-mail at lotte.dijkmansvangunst@westcordhotels.nl and we'll make sure you receive an Amsterdam Experience never to forget!

Warm regards,

I'm a frequent visitor to Amsterdam and have stayed in a fair few hotels.
I stayed her last week for my hen trip with a few friends.
The hotel is very easy to find and is located perfectly, 5mins walk from central station and 2mins from Dam Square/Damrak and it is on a main tram route.
Check in was quick and pleasant. It's worth noting that as standard for Amsterdam they take a €50 expense/damage deposit per room at check in which is refunded at check out. City tax for out trip was €10.50 each room for 2 nights payable in check out.
There is a small refreshments shop in reception where you can buy soft drinks, beer, crisps and chocolate which is extremely handy when you come in from a night out a bit peckish.
The rooms were funky. Tastefully decorated with a nice desk area/ TV and everything was spotless. Small but decent size for Amsterdam Central. As other travellers have noted, the glass bathroom can be a bit of an issue. It wouldn't be an issue at all if I was with my partner. However, when you're sharing a room with a friend and constantly have friends calling in to your room, you may have a problem. It's worth noting also that deluxe twin/double rooms are the same thing and you cannot move the beds apart, but they do have separate duvets.
The kettle and tea/coffee supplies are hidden away in the filing cabinet drawer and the safe is inside the wardrobe- both are easy to use. The shower is lovely although the tray does start to fill up so be careful.
Overall this a fab hotel for Amsterdam central and I will be returning if the price stays reasonable.

Dear eagertoseetheworld,

Thank you so much for taking to create this helpful review! We are proud to read you value our assets and service and we would be delighted to welcome you back. If you like you could try out one of our traditional "stone"bathroom rooms.

Tray of the shower shouldn't be filling up, if you could take the time to send me (lotte.dijkmansvangunst@westcordhotels.nl) more information about in which room you have stayed than we can make sure to check the sinks.

Let me guarantee you the best price available, whenever you plan on coming back to Amsterdam, just drop me a line and I'll make sure to arrange your reservation matching all your needs.

Warm regards,
