“Great hotel at an excellent location”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We stayed at the Best Western Dam Square for a short visit to Amsterdam last weekend. The hotel could not have a better location. Walking distance to all of the city's major attractions including Dam Square, Centraal Station and the Damrak and a comfortable walking distance to all the major museums and other attractions. The hotel offers very clean, comfortable and quiet rooms (it is located on a pedestrian street) and offers a very complete breakfast. The front desk personnel are very friendly and helpful.

As mentioned by others, the location couldn't be better. It was a quick walk from the train station with our luggage to the hotel. We arrived early, just before 8am and our room was ready. What a welcome for 2 tired travellers. Staff were great and very helpful. Our room was very small, to be expected, but it was also very dark and tired. Thankfully they changed towels during our stay, they were so old and threadbare, I wasn't sure they'd last a couple of showers. Overall for it's location, helpful staff, if you're just looking for a place to sleep not a bad hotel.

Location couldn't be better - walking distance to Central Station, close to Dam Square, trams and canals. Staff were great - pleasant and knowledgeable. Hotel was full on our arrival (0700 - early flight). Reception provided access to toilets, luggage storage for the day, walking plan of the city, suggestions for ways to spend the day. We checked at 1400. Room we had requested (quiet - interior courtyard) was ready. Room was pretty basic but clean and airconditioned. Bed was softer than we prefer...Breakfast was advertised as continental, but included hard boiled egg, sliced meats and cheeses, tea, coffee, juice - much better than expected.
Good value for money, we thought.

Room Tip: our 2nd floor room faced the interior courtyard - quite quiet - very little street noise (the hotel...

We picked this hotel for two reasons: location and cost. The location is outstanding, about a 10 minute walk from Central Station, 1 block to Dam Square, 1 or 2 blocks to multiple tram lines, 3 blocks to the Red Light district, and lots of restaurants and taverns in the area. We discovered that September is a busy conference season in Amsterdam and that hotel rates go up, so most of the hotels that we would normally have chosen would have cost 2 or 3 times as much as we paid, so, recognizing that Best Western is essentially a good hotel, we went with it. It was a good choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good. The carpets should be replaced or at least cleaned. The rooms on the street side are noisy. We (and our travel companions) had trouble getting the TV channels to work properly. The staff seemed perplexed and it seemed to be problems with wiring connections. We would go there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 117 which is on the street side and our traveling companions were in 115 which is...

Stayed here for a few nights in August for work. Is a 2/3 star hotel in a pretty central area of Amsterdam and although very basic and in need of a facelift, was pretty clean and provided a quiet night's sleep. Imagine a rough-around-the-edges Travelodge and you're not far off.

The location of the gotel is ideal to cover all the main points of the city. The staff is very polite and helpful. However our room in the second floor (don't rebember the number) needed a change of mattress and a deep cleaning of the carpet!!!!
