My wife and I stayed here for two nights in early November, 2005. Even though we are over 60 we walked from Central Station to the hotel in less than a half hour with backpacks and rolling, carry-on sized suitcases. I decided on this hotel based on location and TripAdvisor reviews. We paid a total of $365.58 for two nights in room 31 on the third floor including a good continental style breakfast, all taxes, and Hotel service fee. The room had two twin beds pushed together, a small table, desk, TV, and small refridgerator. The toilet was in a separate space (I barely fit in) from the shower and sink (no tub). Basic toiletries were provided. Good towels. Wash cloths are not common in Europe and were not provided. The beds were somewhat lumpy but we were always very tired from walking and we slept well with the windows open. The Nova was our first taste of European style bedding - no top sheet, just a comforter with a case on it. The elevator is very tiny and my wife and I (I'm 6'2", 250lbs.) could just fit in with our small amount of luggage. We walked everywhere from the hotel - the dam, red light district, Chinatown, and even into the residential districts. We felt very safe at all times. The tram was riden twice, which stops about a half block from the hotel. Be sure and take a canal tour by boat! Our last morning we had to catch an early train at Central Station and were planning on taking the tram but was told it did not run at the early time we needed to leave so the desk clerk called a taxi and negotiated a price of seven euros for the short trip. We felt the Nova to be very adequate for our needs and would stay there again but bring our own wash cloths!
