Was very impressed with the way the room interior / decor. Loved the wall posters in the rooms. Great place to stay if you want to be close to everything as a tourist in Amsterdam's city center.

We stayed at hotel citadel for about 3 weeks and enjoyed our time there. This was especially the case due to the fantastic staff. Joeren is absolutely fantastic and really made our trip in Amsterdam very special. As a result we were able to see the real Amsterdam including the oldest pub and schnapps house. What a brilliant guy!

Location was perfect for us as we enjoy walking. So much to see and do and all at your doorstep. A short walk to Central station, the main red light district and many other beautiful areas such as Joordan.

The room was comfortable with a desk and view over the bustling street. I did notice that some of the other rooms were a little smaller then ours and they may not have been as comfortable as a result. New beds were being rolled out to all rooms during our stay. Very comfortable beds and linen. Although all beds are two singles which are pushed together to make a double.

Breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful.

A great experience all round!

We were so pleased to have lucked out with this one. The room was spacious enough for the three of us. The amenities were good. It's location is perfect - close to everything. I would highly recommend it and would try to say there again if I return to Amsterdam.

Glad we stayed here. Great room with view of rooftop Amsterdam - small but perfectly serviceable. Excellent shower, flat screen TV, hairdryer, etc. Good lift/elevator.
Desk clerks friendly and helpful. Breakfast perfectly adequate - plenty of choice - good quality. With window open city noises. We bought an amsterdam card, the trams leave from right in front of the hotel, and the city was our oyster. Excellent choice.

Compared to other cheaper hotels in Amsterdam, this is one of the better ones. I have stayed in a number of hotels in Amsterdam, most of which are normally terrible. Just like other budget hotels in Amsterdam, the room is just a bit bigger than a coffin. But unlike other budget hotels in Amsterdam, the room was more modern, clean and the bathroom was a better size than others. The breakfast was also very good with decent variety. All in all, if I was traveling back to Amsterdam and needed a cheep place to stay, this hotel is better than the others and is in a very good location.

I stay in Amsterdam quite often on business. I usually go for the cheapest reasonable hotel near the station.
This hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the station and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Could not fault it - fairly basic with a typically simple Dutch breakfast. Room seemed clean and I will stay here again.

This is a very nice hotel and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Our room (3 sharing) was quite small but Very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I could not hear any noise from out side.
The location is perfect close to central station and tram lines.
The breakfast was very nice.
