Best Western Dam Square Inn
Ranked #138 of 376 Hotels in Amsterdam
Reviewed 28 February 2012

I stayed in the hotel for two night. It takes 10 minutes to go in the hotel by walk. The street is small and there are a lot of people but they did not make a noise. Staff was helpful. There is tea maker in the room. Wi-fi internet was good. Room was clear, bed is comfortable. Bathroom is good and clean. Breakfast was modest, but not bad. Minus: hotel took 50 euro guarantee fee.

This Hotel is a real gem, it is very clean and great value and best of all only a few yards for Dam Square in the Heart of Amsterdam.Staff were also very friendly and made its a very pleasant stay.Only a 5 to 10 min walk from Central Station which links you to the Airport. Would defo recommend this Hotel.

The Best Western Dam Square Inn in downtown Amsterdam is nicely located within walking distance to the Main Train Station and with train access to points around the city and close access to canal cruises, shopping streets. The reception staff are always helpful and nearby are a number of good restaurants and pubs. Check out the all-you-can-eat Sushi restaurant.

The hotel was right in the center of city just 5 minutes walking from city rail station connecting Airport and Europe. Tram connections, Canal cruise, shopping street, restaurants, Tour departures too were very close. Staff was very helpful and kind. The room was very small, but our overall stay was pleasant.

Room Tip: Take higher floors.

Bad service, bad attitude, bad quality... :(
I used to love this hotel, but I will never come here again. The cleaning lady broke my laptop, denied it and then the manager blamed me for leaving my laptop on the room's carpet. So I wouldn't go there if you plan to leave valuable belongings in places where the hotel thinks it is ok to break them. Of course, no compensation for my broken laptop was offered. I used to go there a lot and it really saddens me to be treated this way.

Room Tip: DO NOT put anything on the floor (including your suitcase), they are NOT responsible for any damage!

We arrived in Amsterdam on 2 January so the streets of Amsterdam were filthy! There was litter everywhere! We walked from the Central Station to the hotel (about 2.5kms) not bad and instructions on how to get there worked, but when we arrived in our street we were shocked that that was where we had to walkled down - quite dodgey! Once found the hotel wasn't as bad as the rest of its surroundings. The rooms are quite old fashioned and carpets are dated. There were two single beds pushed together - which I hate (hardly romantic!) and no curtains - it was winter and the sun only rose at 9h30 but still it made the room cold and unfriendly. Towels were the size of my bath mats at home and could hardly wrapped around me. The buffet breakfast was just cereal, youghurt and toast.

Room Tip: When booking ask for a double bed!

We only stayed one night in the hotel during a mini cruise from Hull to Amsterdam so we chose it mainly for the location as we were only staying for 2 days. Being just around the corner from Dam, it was within easy walking distance of just about everything and being a very flat city, you can do LOTS of walking!
The hotel itself was extremely nice and exceptionally clean. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and spoke very good English. The rooms were quite large with a great big comfy bed which made it even better for us being as the tiny single beds on the ferry across were not that great! The rooms had everything in them you could need including a flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities, a safe and shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom. The breakfast was nice but didnt have as much choice as other hotels i have stayed in, including other Best Westerns. Overall this was a great choice of hotel and i highly recommend it!
