Hotel Amsterdam - De Roode Leeuw
Ranked #164 of 375 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 8 May 2014

The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful throughout my 8 day stay. I had a lovely large room (though I understand some rooms are quite small)....clean and lovely. The hotel is on Damrak there was not much noise at all from the street but you could request a back room. Very very central, s hort walk to the Central station and on tram routes. The perfect place to set out to explore amsterdam and Holland.

Room Tip: Corner room was lovely and sunny. Back rooms are quieter...

Before our visit to the De Roode Leeuw I read the reviews on Tripadvisor. I agree with some comments our room at times was noisy even though we had double glazing and the windows were shut and the dip in the bed didn't make for a very comfortable nights sleep, however those things aside we did have a wonderful 2 nights stay at this Hotel. All members of staff were pleasant and very helpful whether on reception or in the restaurant. The room was a little on the small side but we had everything we needed and the room and bathroom had obviously been recently refurbished. The location near the Dam Square is excellent for any trips you may want to make and the trams stopped right outside the door. We didn't use the trams as everything we wanted to see and do was on the doorstep and within walking distance. We found a wonderful bar/pub called De Wildermanns which sold some fantastic ales and for those of you who like your beer is a must visit.
So the location of this Hotel is fantastic and it is busy outside, so don't complain that it is noisy it is only to be expected. We paid a visit to The Rembrandt Museum and enjoyed that very much. All in all I can recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was 108 and is at the side of the hotel, maybe not the ideal room if you are after a good v...

We stayed there 3 nights at easter and it was very comfortable. We received an upgrade in the junior suite which was "wow"! Next to the hotel was a fun fair but we didn't notice much noise. Staff was very kind and helpful. It is located in the centre and close to everything you want to do in A'dam.

We recently stayed here for a three night break and the location is the hotels best feature. The rooms that we had were small and basic. They were clean and modern but the room was really too small. The bathroom had a shower and toilet and the wash hand basin was in the bedroom as the shower room was too small for it! The bed had a good quality mattress but the bed sloped inwards from both sides so we ended up both in the middle of the bed! Not great for a good nights sleep. The room had air con which was great. There was a lot of noise outside at night which impacted on sleep but we were very central so can't complain about this. The hotel has the slowest ever lift! Amsterdam still as beautiful as ever and don't regret booking here as got a good deal but wouldn't stay again :)

A historical building has some disadvantages such as rooms in all different sizes and a slow lift and one room with the wash basin outside the bathroom, which I understand was the room you occupied . But we do have superior rooms of a larger size which have also a bathtub and an espresso machine. We regret that you won't use us again and apologize that we could not meet your expectations

The hotel was very nice inside and out. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was much smaller than I had expected but being in the center of the city its to be expected. The only thing that we did not like were the beds. Coming from America we are used to box springs and firm mattresses. The mattress was very soft and as it was really two twin beds put together my wife and spent the night rolling into the center of the bed. She had no complaints as she saw it as bringing us closer together. LOL. I on the other hand felt the quality of the bed everyday when we woke in my back. Other than that it was nice and I had no other complaints. Regardless of the bed, I would probably stay here again if I returned as it was conveniently located close to everything you would want to do in Amsterdam.

We spent four nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. The staff were extremely professional and friendly. We had two meals enjoyable meals during our stay and the wine was very reasonable for a central city hotel. The location is excellent and is only a short walk from central station - there was no need for a taxi.
