the hotel is very well situated,in the heart of Amsterdam and not far from the railway station.The room was very little (one person) but comfortable and clean.Breakfast was excellent.
The only minus was ,that the desk gave us information that was not correct anymore about parking the car on a P+R outside the city centre.Their information is not up to date.However the desk people are very friendly.And overall,this hotel is a good choice for low budget travellers.

My wife picked this hotel that we stayed in a few days ago and I'm glad she did. As others have said,it is in a super location between the station and Dam square so it is ideal.

The receptionists are very good and check in was quick and easy. The room and bathroom was nice and there was a huge large screen Samsung tv on the wall. Most of the channels are in dutch and I really liked the classical channel (brava nl klassiek). The bed was really nice and comfortable.

Breakfast was the usual continental breakfast with lots of bread,cheese and ham with cerials and jams. The receptionist (I don't know her name) was very helpful and we were able to leave our suitcase in a special locked room after check out so that we didnt have to take our suitcases everywhere with us in the 4 hours before we had to catch our coach to the ferry port.

There was only one thing that I found frustrating and that is the same as others have said about the wi-fi. It was strong in the reception area but weak where we were on the 3rd floor. We were trying to Skype our young son but the connection kept disconnecting and it was so annoying.

Other than that,it was a fine hotel and we are hoping to return to Amsterdam later in the year with our son and we would be happy to book the Hotel Citadel again. But please.....sort the wi-fi out.

Wasn't hugely fancy, or anything, but I found it to be a good location. Close to the dam, veyr close to central station. And clean. The breakfast was good. Standard coninental. Few cheese, meat, bread, yogurt, etc. Shower was a little locker room feeling, but was clean, so I couldnt complain. Room was small, but comfortable. TV worked.
Biggest complaint was the internet was VERY on and off in the rooms. Useless at times, and would barely work most of the time. Occasional minutes of normal level of function. Lobby internet seemed completely fine though.
Front staff was friendly and gave me recommendations for dinner, etc., i felt very safe, and overall had a very pleasant night's stay.

Good hotel in a great location just a short walk from the main railway station and another short walk into the centre of Amsterdam, our room and facilities were both very good,breakfast continental but fine wi-fi was a bit limited on the higher floors, but all in all the hotel was a good choice.

Room Tip: Its a busy road outside so higher is probably quieter but affects the wifi
