“Perfect Location and Clean Hotel!”
Reviewed 25 December 2010

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.

Citadel is very conveniently located in the centre of the city and just about 5-10 minutes walk from the central train station. Tram stop is in the front of hotel if walking is not your cup of tea. It is true that there is a weird smell inside the building, kind of a wet dog or something.

Decent lift took us to the top floor (7th) were our room was located. Couldn't hear any noise from the street, but the fire alarm of our next door neighbour went off. There was a nice view over the roofs. Room itself was small, however it was one of the only rooms I've ever been having hooks on the wall to hang jackets! Beds were separate (not double) and kept pulling away from each other, but otherwise very comfortable. Somehow there was room also for wardrobe, 2 chairs and a desk.

Bathroom was very small. After having a shower it was like a swimming pool when water didn't go into to drain but was floating on the floor. A tool to wipe the floor (a squeegee?) would have been nice, but while there was no such thing, a towel had to be used to dry the floor.

Buffet breakfast was 7,50 € per person and included basic things like coffee, tea and orange juice, bread, ham, cheese, sliced tomatoes and cucumber, boiled eggs, cereal and yoghurt. Breakfast area was packed, tables unclean and every second food dish empty - obviously there was not enough personnel.

I would rate this as 2 star hotel and would never pay 180 for a double room. Look for offers or somewhere else.

My self stayed with my friend for 2 nights. Rooms are clean but small. I didnt understand why need to have a 42"LCD in a small room. Breakfast was Ok. Very Friendly staff. Near to all attractions, prime area.

Recommend if you are going with friends., not families..
