“Strange experience”
Reviewed 17 September 2007

The location in the very center is nice, but the hotel has been around for a long time and it shows. Finding ones room is not easy, since the place has sprawled out over time and with construction going on, getting the right room may not be easy. We - I travelled with a partner - both ended up in handicapped rooms, without being told, which had interesting plusses and minuses - the shower was big enough for an entire soccer team, with 2 giant shower heads, but little water pressure. Shaving was a problem, with the mirror at waist hight. The room smelled a bit (maybe a dead mouse?) and the bed was awful - very 'springy'. Service throughout was pretty rustic, if not just plain bad. There are much better choices in this area, although as said, the location is great.

We found this hotel to be wonderful! I couldn't say anything bad about this hotel, they were very accomodating and helpful! We had a slight problem with our internet connection in the room and they practically bent over backwards trying to make it up to us - even though we protested it wasn't neccesary! Lovely, lovely hotel! Beautiful views, easy to find, the staff were so friendly, very clean room and huge bed!! :)

We stayed with a group of friends at this good hotel overlooking the canal just off the Liedesplein and the Vondel park. This hotel is within walking distance of the flower market (nice walk) and the centre Dam square . Also a short tram ride to Central station. access to Schipol is excellent . The hotel will arrange a shuttle or taxi for you. Staff was helpful and the breakfasts..DELICIOUS!!
Loads of restaurants close by...Zorba the Greek recommended

The Canal hop on hop off stop and cruises are just on the doorstep!

Great hotel took shuttle to and from hotel and airport it was handled well on both ends. Executive room, double shower with large rain fall shower heads. Very nice! Excellent bed newly remodeled room with artwork, safe, mini bar. Room looked like pictures on Website. Had to walk up one flight of stairs but it was worth it pretty view even though not toward Leidseplein. Excellent location bought tram tickets and Van Gough tickets from desk clerk very convenient. Breakfast buffet was of good to great quality although expensive. Nice staff, who are very helpful. Would definitely return again.

I booked the park hotel for my husbands 50th birthday, the pictures on the web looked great, the location was good, we stayed on the 6th floor in an executive room !! there was nothing executive about it, the king size bed was comfy, but the rest of the room ( it was very clean ) was in great need of an update, the bathroom (lovely thick white towels ) would have been excellent if the mildew had been cleaned from the tiles and a fresh shower curtain had been hung, we had a great weekend all the same,

We stayed for a couple of nights in mid August, arrived expecting a standard double room as booked on line and were provided without asking a free upgrade with a suite on the third floor overlooking the canal, Irish Bar and Hard Rock cafe - this was a recently refurbished room, it would be difficult to imagine a nicer room with a better view , absolutely outstanding.
Superb location - within walking distance of Vondel Park, the Museums, Leidseplein, and try the PC Hoofstraat about 100 away for the designer shops.
The large room was superb - huge, comfortable queen bed with flat screen TV at your feet. Good mini bar, although I am always a little scared to sample the treats so could not comment on the cost. A superb bathroom of black ganite with fantastic shower, bath, excellent array of soaps, shampoo etc.
The room was very stylish, with pretty fresh flowers.
Would I recommend - certainly

we stayed in a new refurbished superior room on the 5th floor which was excellent . Very quiet,very clean nice and modern.
We checked in and got our room key and went up to our room, only to open the door and find a couple asleep in bed. !!!!!!!
Not what I wanted. so back downstairs we go. receptionist could not believe it and it turns out she had sent us to the wrong room oooops.( Glad it was not me in bed).
On returning to the room the next evening a letter had been slipped under our door apologizing for the wrong room incident from the duty manager, which was nice.
After walking around amsterdam we realised that thisHotel is in an excellent location and were very glad that we had picked it. Only a thirty minute walk to dam square and five minutes from liedseplein (busy nightlife and loads of places to eat).
We would definetely stay here again.
