Hotel was easy to find from the train station on the main drag of town
Room was nice, freshly renovated
Bed was comfy (twin room)
Airconditioned
Can catch the tram from accross the road, but lots of attractions are within walking distance
Would highly recommend to friends

Stayed here for a day.

Booked a twin room ..

1. Check in was easy and quick
2. Room was clean and spacious
3. Washroom was really nice and liked the shower cubicle
4. Tea/coffee making facility was there, but no milk :-P .... you would need to go to ground floor reception and get the milk... didnt like the idea much
5. Location is very good, just 3-4 mins from Dam Square and 15 mins walk from the station. To go to the museums you can catch the trams just opposite the hotel, and just takes 10-15mins.
6. Offers cheap and nice breakfast.

Overall pretty good option to stay in the city center.

Having seen some negative reviews based on the previous state prior to the refurbishment, I'm glad to report that the hotel has been refurbished.

This is a small hotel, not flashy in any way, but clean and comfortable. At a very reasonable price.

The rooms are refurbished. Small but modern and clean.

I would stay here again. For it great location, value and clean and comfortable rooms.

We randomly walked into the hotel and for 120/night in a central location like that, we thought it was worth it.

Thry had valet service for parking for which if you call in advance they keep ready.

Rooms were clean and furnishing modern/chic.

Receptionist was exceptionally "cordial" which we thought was quite fitting with the name. He helped us patiently.

Bus stop, tram stop, station, canal ride, coffee shops were all a stone's throw away!

Red Light area was a short walk away and Van Gogh Museum and Anne Franks House were all connected by bus/tram.

All in all very happy with the hotel and so the weekend :)

After reading some of the reviews I can confirm that this hotel appears to have been turned around for the best. Hotel located in town center, so there is going to be outside noise etc but nothing more than would be expected in any major city. Reception staff were very helpful even accommodating us on an early arrival. Breakfast was not included & seemed priced high just for a continental breakfast & this option was not taken.
Brand new lift took us up to our room where entry was by key card in to a clean newly decorated modern room. Bathroom was fantastic with frosted glass door & great walk in shower. Tea making facility, free room safe & a TV with perfect reception. Comfortable beds with clean linen.

There was a bar but don't expect to get a drink from it as it doesn't look like its been used for a couple of years!

The traveller photos are all old, taken obviously before refurbishment!
