“Probably the best location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

Great location, easy to find and friendly staff. Rooms are a bit worn out, but very clean, comfortable, warm, roomy (for the city centre) and kitted out with most mod cons that you'll need.

Breakfast was a bonus, and decent enough for a continental style breakfast, but the addition of bacon and eggs would have been lovely.

Our room was one of the one of the inner rooms, so ne real view as such and not much light through our window. Might get hot in the summer.

I would definetly stay here again.

I come to Amsterdam every other year to attend a trade fair. I chose my hotel based on price, location and ease of access to transportation. The Best Western Dam Square Inn fulfilled all of my needs. In addition the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was wholesome.

The hotel is a great deal for the location and it's condition. Looked at so many local hotels and hostels before finding this gem. It is much cleaner than the hostels in the area for around the same price. Friendly staff, clean spacious rooms, and you are right downtown. Just a 2 minute walk to the red light district and about 10 minute walk from central station.

Reception staff extremely helpful. Gave us map and advice around where to visit in town. Hotel great location, walking distance to everything. Breakfast was included and couldn't fault it. Service for tea and coffee quick and all you can eat buffet. Coffee shop straight across the road does the best cakes ever! The red velvet cake is to die for.

The room was so small, we moved the one seedy comfy chair to a corner in the hallway, as there was no room to move around. But staff was very friendly. So-so WiFi, good one day and not usable the next day. Great location and wonderful breakfast. This hotel is on a walking street - which allows cars and taxis to unload before noon. The nearby parking garage was REALLY expensive - 52 Euros per day or 2 Euros every 20 minutes. No wonder Amsterdam was not difficult to get around by car - but watch out for the thousands of bicycles. The little coffeeshop across from the front door of the hotel was really good, but only open for breakfast and lunch. Another Italian restaurant nearby was horrible - more of a bar only. We didn't eat at any really good restaurants, but got names on the last day from the staff. Close to the Red Light District, which was really fun to walk around at night - very safe. Lots of tourists. I'd stay here again, despite lousy room.

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.
