A good 3-star hotel centrally located. What we liked most was the comfortable beds and a good breakfast. Friendly staff too. Small room and bathroom, but this did not matter much to us.

We have visited Amsterdam on 19 occasions in 19 years and yes stayed at the Citadel on 19 seperate occasions. The location, accomodation, cleanliness and excellent staff make this hotel our first choice year after year. During this period many changes have taken place within the hotel and the recent refurbishment has only served to further reinforce our opinion of this little gem. Many of the staff are long serving ({ I didn't say old ! } which is pleasing given a trade that normally has a high turnover of staff.
Particular mention should be made of the the cleaners and reception staff Laney and Jessica who are both accommodating and professional in their approach. Indeed their efforts make this place a gourmet smorgasboard of hotel theory and practice.
See you in February 2012 !!

The hotel staff was extremely friendly, and the hotel itself was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast provided each morning was delicious-- fresh bread, fruit, ham, cheese, yogurt, coffee, and juice! Also, the location of the hotel was right in the middle between the Centraal Station and Dam Square--perfect!! Everything was a short walk away. Wifi service was very cheap-- 1 euro/minute! Would definitely stay here again!

Certainly a good location. A short walk to Central Station and near many of the major tourist sites in the city. Our price was certainly not cheap. Further, the room smelled of some unknown chemical. Not enough to ruin the stay, but not exactly pleasant either. Room was pretty quiet for being on a major street.

We had a pleasant 3 days here, very comfortable room even if it was a tad cosy size! Good heating for the wintry snap. A kettle etc would have been a nice addition. Breakfast was perfectly adequate, in fact better than we expected, although it was rather budget products, They even allowed us an early start at 6.45 am when we had to head for the airport. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Wi-fi at 2 euros per hour was cheap enough compared to business hotels but I think they should offer it free in this day and age.

My partner and i stayed at the citadel hotel for 6 nights. Our room was lovely and clean and beds were really comfortable. The staff were all lovely and breakfast was continental of which you had lots of choice. Rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. All in all a fantastic hotel and i would recommend it to anyone.
